  • Patent number: 5792871
    Abstract: Compound 9 is prepared by a 9-step ##STR1## process in an overall yield of about 35% from 3-acetylpyridine. Compound 10 is prepared by a seven-step ##STR2## process in an overall yield of about 30% from 3-acetyl pyridine. These compounds are key intermediates in the synthesis of Compound 11, an important .beta.-3 agonist useful in the treatment of obesity and diabetes.

  • Patent number: 5314898
    Abstract: Compounds having the formula I: ##STR1## are inhibitors of the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme and inhibitors of leukotriene biosynthesis. These compounds are useful as anti-asthmatic, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective agents. They are also useful in treating angina, cerebral spasm, glomerular nephritis, hepatitis, endotoxemia, psoriasis, uveitis, and allograft rejection and in preventing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.
