Design and synthesis of fused soluble epoxide hydrolase/peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor modulators†
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a widespread, complex disease cluster which consists of hypertension, atherosclerosis, dyslipidaemia and type II diabetes. The treatment of MetS requires multiple pharmaceutical agents leading to complex polypharmacy. Multi-target compounds might reduce the number of required drugs in MetS patients. In this study we fused three different pharmacophores of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) inhibitors and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonists. The most promising fused scaffold exhibits multi-target activity and represents a valuable starting point for design and evaluation of fused sEH/PPAR modulators.
