Article
Janus kinases (JAKs) are considered promising targets for the treatment of autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis (RA) due to their important role in multiple cytokine receptor signaling pathways. Recently, several JAK inhibitors have been developed for the treatment of RA. Here, we describe the identification of the novel orally bioava...
Article
Janus kinases (JAKs) play a crucial role in cytokine mediated signal transduction. JAK inhibitors have emerged as effective immunomodulative agents for the prevention of transplant rejection. We previously reported that the tricyclic imidazo-pyrrolopyridinone 2 is a potent JAK inhibitor; however, it had poor oral absorption due to low membrane perm...

The Janus kinase (JAK) family of tyrosine kinases is associated with various cytokine receptors. JAK1 and JAK3 play particularly important roles in the immune response, and their inhibition is expected to provide targeted immune modulation. Several oral JAK inhibitors have recently been developed for treating autoimmune diseases, including rheumato...
Article
In organ transplantation, T cell-mediated immune responses play a key role in the rejection of allografts. Janus kinase 3 (JAK3) is specifically expressed in hematopoietic cells and associated with regulation of T cell development via interleukin-2 signaling pathway. Here, we designed novel 4,6-diaminonicotinamide derivatives as immunomodulators ta...
Article
Janus kinases (JAKs) regulate various inflammatory and immune responses and are targets for the treatment of inflammatory and immune diseases. As a novel class of immunomodulators targeting JAK3, 1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine-5-carboxamide derivatives are promising candidates for treating such diseases. In chemical modification of lead compound 2, the...
Article
Because Janus kinases (JAKs) play a crucial role in cytokine-mediated signal transduction, JAKs are an attractive target for the treatment of organ transplant rejection and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). To identify JAK inhibitors, we focused on the 1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine derivative 3, which exhibited moderate JAK3 and JA...

Janus kinases (JAKs) have been known to play crucial roles in modulating a number of inflammatory and immune mediators. Here, we describe a series of 1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine derivatives as novel immunomodulators targeting JAK3 for use in treating immune diseases such as organ transplantation. In the chemical modification of compound 6, the introd...
Article
Background The Janus kinase (JAK) family of enzymes plays a key role in cytokine signaling, which is involved in the pathogenic events of immune-mediated disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Objectives The aim of this study was to identify pharmacological profiles of a newly synthesized JAK inhibitor, ASP015K, and to estimate its therapeuti...

Novel thiazole derivatives were synthesized and evaluated as vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1) inhibitors. Although we previously identified a compound (2) with potent VAP-1 inhibitory activity in rats, the human activity was relatively weak. Here, to improve the human VAP-1 inhibitory activity of compound 2, we first evaluated the structure-acti...
Article
Vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1), an amine oxidase that is also known as a semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO), is present in particularly high levels in human plasma, and is considered a potential therapeutic target for various inflammatory diseases, including diabetes complications such as macular edema. In our VAP-1 inhibitor program...
Article
Kinins, members of a family of peptides released from kininogens by the action of kallikreins, have been implicated in a variety of biological activities including vasodilation, increased vascular permeability, contraction of smooth muscle cells and activation of sensory neurons. However, investigation of the physiological actions of kinins have be...
Article
In recent articles we reported the identification of a series of 8-[[2, 6-dichloro-3-[N-methyl-N-[(E)-(substituted)acryloylglycyl]amino]++ +benzy l]oxy]-2-methylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridines as the first orally active non-peptide bradykinin (BK) B2 receptor antagonists. Optimization of the terminal glycine part and the imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine moiety led t...
Article
Recently we reported the identification of a series of 8-[[3-(N-acylglycyl-N-methylamino)-2, 6-dichlorobenzyl]oxy]-3-halo-2-methylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridines as the first orally active non-peptide bradykinin (BK) B2 receptor antagonists (1-3). These compounds inhibited the specific binding of [3H]BK to guinea pig ileum membrane preparations expressing...
Article
Recently we reported on overcoming the species difference of our first orally active non-peptide bradykinin (BK) B2 receptor antagonists, incorporating an 8-[[3-(N-acylglycyl-N-methylamino)-2, 6-dichlorobenzyl]oxy]-3-halo-2-methylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridine skeleton, leading to identification of the first clinical candidate 4a (FR167344). With this pote...
