Synthesis and biological evaluation of 5,6-diarylimidazo[2.1-b]thiazole as selective COX-2 inhibitors
A series of 5,6-diarylimidazo[2.1-b]thiazole compounds were prepared and their inhibitory potencies against COX-2 and Cox-1 enzymes were measured. This led to the identification of L-766,112 as a potent, orally active and selective inhibitor of the COX-2 enzyme.
