Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitors have attractive therapeutic potential in respiratory, inflammatory, metabolic and CNS disorders. The present work details the design, chemical exploration and biological profile of a novel PDE4 inhibitor chemotype. A diazepinone ring was identified as an under-represented heterocyclic system fulfilling a set of PDE4 structure-based design hypotheses. Rapid exploration of the structure activity relationships for the series was enabled by robust and scalable two/three-steps parallel chemistry protocols. The resulting compounds demonstrated PDE4 inhibitory activity in cell free and cell-based assays comparable to the Zardaverine control used, suggesting potential avenues for their further development.
