Summary for Patent: 7,435,750
Title:Method of using substituted 3-aryl-5-aryl-[1,2,4]-oxadiazoles and analogs as activators of caspases and inducers of apoptosis and the use thereof
Abstract: The present invention is directed to substituted 3-aryl-5-aryl-[1,2,4]-oxadiazoles and analogs thereof, represented by the Formula I: ##STR00001## wherein Ar.sub.1, Ar.sub.3, A, B and D are defined herein. The present invention also relates to the discovery that compounds having Formula I are activators of caspases and inducers of apoptosis. Therefore, the activators of caspases and inducers of apoptosis of this invention may be used to induce cell death in a variety of clinical conditions in which uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells occurs.
Inventor(s): Cai; Sui Xiong (San Diego, CA), Zhang; Han-Zhong (San Diego, CA), Drewe; John A. (Carlsbad, CA), Reddy; P. Sanjeeva (San Diego, CA), Kasibhatla; Shailaja (San Diego, CA), Kuemmerle; Jared Daniel (Del Mar, CA), Ollis; Kristin P. (San Diego, CA)
