Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

The synthesis and biological evaluation of ethyl 8-oxo-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-thiazolo[3,2-a][1,3]diazepin-3-carboxylate (HIE-124, 4), as a member of a new generation of ultra-short acting hypnotics is described. HIE-124 4 exhibited potent in-vivo activity with a very rapid onset of action and a shorter duration of action with no acute tolerance or noticeable side effects than thiopental sodium. The rat in-vivo and in-vitro metabolic profile of 4 is also described. Urine was pooled from a number of animals and analyzed using electrospray liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (ESI LC-MS). HIE-124 4 was incubated with rat-liver microsomal and rat-liver hepatocyte preparations then similarly analyzed. The only metabolic product of both in-vitro and in-vivo experiments is the carboxylic acid derivative 5. HIE-124 4 has the potential use not only as a pre-anesthetic medication and as anesthesia inducer but also has the potential to be used with thiopental sodium to maintain anesthesia for longer duration.
