In the course of our ongoing studies, a series of thiazolo[3,2-b]-1,2,4-triazole-5(6H)-ones substituted with flurbiprofen (CAS 5104-49-4) has been prepared. The compounds were synthesized by the cyclization of the 3-[(2-fluoro-4-biphenyl)ethyl]-5-mercapto-1,2,4-triazole (3) with chloroacetic acid and relevant benzaldehydes in the presence of acetic acid, acetic anhydride and anhydrous sodium acetate in one step. The product of this one-pot synthesis that precipitated on cooling of the reaction mixture was identified undoubtedly by X-ray crystallographic analysis as thiazolo[3,2-b]-1,2,4-triazole. In-vivo anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of the compounds were assessed by carrageenan-induced hind paw edema and p-benzoquinone-induced abdominal constriction tests in mice, respectively. in addition, the ulcerogenic risks were evaluated. It is worthy of saying that the compounds which maintained analgesic/anti-inflammatory activity of the starting compound were found to be safer with regard to gastric lesion risks at 100 mg/kg oral dose when compared with flurbiprofen. Among the synthesized compounds 3d showed the highest analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity without inducing any gastric lesion and deserves further attention in order to develop new lead drug candidates.
