M is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, alkyl, substituted alkyl, aryl, and heteroaryl;

R.sup.1 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, alkyl, substituted alkyl, aryl, heteroaryl, arylalkyl, heteroarylalkyl, heterocyclic and heterocyclicalkyl;

R.sup.2 is hydrogen, or R.sup.1 and R.sup.2 together with the nitrogen atom to which they are attached form a heterocyclic or heteroaryl ring;

pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.

2. A pharmaceutical composition of matter comprising the compound of claim 1 in an amount effective for treating or controlling disease states associated with metalloproteases in patients in need of such treatment; and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier, with the proviso that said metalloproteases do not include collagenase-1 and stromelysin-I.

3. A method for treating or controlling disease states associated with metalloproteases in patients in need of such treatment which method comprises administering to said patient an effective amount of the compound of claim 1, with the proviso that said metalloproteases do not include collagenase-1 and stromelysin-I.
