A series of adamantyl amide 11beta-HSD1 inhibitors has been discovered and chemically modified. Selected compounds are selective for 11beta-HSD1 over 11beta-HSD2 and possess excellent cellular potency in human and murine 11beta-HSD1 assays. Good pharmacodynamic characteristics are observed in ex vivo assays.
