A series of 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-1H-pyrrolo[3,2-c]pyridines (THPPs), mostly C(2)-substituted derivatives, and some 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-pyrido[4,3-b]indoles (THPIs) were synthesized and tested in-vitro for their ability to inhibit aggregation of human platelet-rich plasma (PRP) induced by adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP) and adrenaline (epinephrine). 5-Benzyl THPP (3), 2-(benzylamino)methyl THPP (5f) and 2-ethyl THPI (6) moderately and dose-dependently inhibited platelet aggregation induced by adrenaline and, to a lesser extent, by ADP. These compounds inhibited the second phase of the PRP aggregation triggered by adrenaline, which largely depends upon thromboxane A(2) production and ADP release. In the adrenaline stimulated aggregation, the THPI derivative 6 was found to be nearly equipotent with aspirin, their IC50 values (concentration effecting 50% inhibition of aggregation) being 90 and 60 microM, respectively. A relation between activity and calculated octanol-water partition coefficient suggested that a log P value around 2.5 should be the optimal lipophilicity value for the activity of THPP-containing compounds.

Abstract

A series of 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-1H-pyrrolo[3,2-c]pyridines (THPPs), mostly C(2)-substituted derivatives, and some 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-pyrido[4,3-b]indoles (THPIs) were synthesized and tested in-vitro for their ability to inhibit aggregation of human platelet-rich plasma (PRP) induced by adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP) and adrenaline (epinephrine). 5-Benzyl THPP (3), 2-(benzylamino)methyl THPP (5f) and 2-ethyl THPI (6) moderately and dose-dependently inhibited platelet aggregation induced by adrenaline and, to a lesser extent, by ADP. These compounds inhibited the second phase of the PRP aggregation triggered by adrenaline, which largely depends upon thromboxane A(2) production and ADP release. In the adrenaline stimulated aggregation, the THPI derivative 6 was found to be nearly equipotent with aspirin, their IC50 values (concentration effecting 50% inhibition of aggregation) being 90 and 60 microM, respectively. A relation between activity and calculated octanol-water partition coefficient suggested that a log P value around 2.5 should be the optimal lipophilicity value for the activity of THPP-containing compounds.
