Abstract

Abstract In a discovery effort to find safe and effective DGAT-1 inhibitors, we have identified 2-phenyloxazole 4-carboxamide 1 as a conformationally constrained analog of a hydrazide hit, which was previously identified from high-throughput screening. Further optimization of this series has led to chemically more stable 2-phenyloxazole-based DGAT-1 inhibitor 25 with improved solubility, cell-based activity, and pharmacokinetic properties. Compound 25 also demonstrated in vivo efficacy in a diet-induced obesity (DIO) rat model.
