Journal Article (Journal Article)

By inserting an oxygen link between the 3-fluorophenyl and the lactone ring of 5,5-dimethyl-3-(3fluorophenyl)-4-(4-methanesulfonylphenyl)-2 (5H)-furanone 1 (DFU), analogs with enhanced in vitro COX-2 inhibitory potency as well as in vivo potency in models of inflammation were obtained.
