ABSTRACT: The lead optimisation of the diaminopyrimidine carboxamide series of spleen tyrosine kinase inhibitors is described. The medicinal chemistry strategy was focused on optimising the human whole blood activity whilst achieving a sufficient margin over liability kinases and hERG activity. GSK143 is a potent and highly selective SYK inhibitor showing good efficacy in the rat Arthus model.
