The discovery, synthesis, and SAR of chromanes as ER alpha subtype selective ligands are described. X-ray studies revealed that the origin of the ER alpha-selectivity resulted from a C-4 trans methyl substitution to the cis-2,3-diphenyl-chromane platform. Selected compounds from this class demonstrated very potent in vivo antagonism of estradiol in an immature rat uterine weight assay, effectively inhibited ovariectomy-induced bone resorption in a 42 days treatment paradigm, and lowered serum cholesterol levels in ovx'd adult rat models. The best antagonists 8F and 12F also exhibited potent inhibition of MCF-7 cell growth and were shown to be estrogen receptor down-regulators (SERDs).
