Abstract / Description of output

Inhibitors of 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11beta-HSD1) show promise as drugs to treat metabolic disease and CNS disorders such as cognitive impairment. A series of 1,5-substituted 1H-tetrazole 11beta-HSD1 inhibitors has been discovered and chemically modified. Compounds are selective for 11beta-HSD1 over 11beta-HSD2 and possess good cellular potency in human and murine 11beta-HSD1 assays. A range of in vitro stabilities are observed in human liver microsome assays.
