A series of 6-amino-4-oxo-1,3-diphenyl-2-thioxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidine-5-carbonyl derivatives was synthesized. The compounds demonstrated to be novel, potent and selective inhibitors of Interleukin-8-induced human neutrophil chemotaxis. A SAR study was performed by varying the carbonyl function at position 5 and the chain linked to the amino group at position 6 of the scaffold. All the compounds of the series displayed inhibitory activity at nano- or picomolar concentrations against Interleukin-8-driven migration and no activity against fMLP- and C5a-induced chemotaxis. The binding tests of selected compounds on CXCR1 and CXCR2 receptors were negative. The most potent derivative showed in vivo efficacy in a mouse model of Zymosan-induced peritonitis.
