- PubMed Abstract:
A novel class of 3,6-disubstituted 2-pyridinecarboxamide derivatives was designed based on X-ray analysis of the 2-aminobenzamide lead class. Subsequent chemical modification led to the discovery of potent GK activators which eliminate potential toxicity concerns associated with an aniline group of the lead structure. Compound 7 demonstrated glucose lowering effect in a rat OGTT model.
