|Assignee:||Merrell-Toraude et Cie (Strasbourg, FR)|
|Filing Date:||Feb 03, 1981|
|Claims:||1. A method of treating benign prostatic hypertrophy in a patient in need thereof which comprises the administration to said patient of an effective amount of a compound of the formula ##STR15## wherein: Y is FCH.sub.2 --, F.sub.2 CH--, or F.sub.3 C--; |
R.sub.a and R.sub.b are, independently, hydrogen, (C.sub.1 -C.sub.4)alkylcarbonyl, or the group ##STR16## wherein R.sub.2 is hydrogen, (C.sub.1 -C.sub.4) alkyl, benzyl, or p-hydroxybenzyl;
R.sub.1 is hydroxy, (C.sub.1 -C.sub.8)alkoxy, the group --NR.sub.4 R.sub.5, wherein R.sub.4 and R.sub.5 are, independently, hydrogen, or, (C.sub.1 -C.sub.4)alkyl, or the group ##STR17## wherein R.sub.3 is hydrogen, (C.sub.1 -C.sub.4) alkyl, benzyl, or p-hydroxybenzyl;
or the pharmaceutically acceptable salts or individual optical isomers thereof.
2. A method as defined in claim 1 wherein Y is --CH.sub.2 F or --CHF.sub.2.
3. A method as defined in claim 1 or 2 wherein R.sub.1 is hydroxy.
4. A method as defined in claim 1 or 2 wherein R.sub.1 is hydroxy and R.sub.a is hydrogen.
5. A method as defined in claim 1 or 2 wherein R.sub.1 is hydroxy and R.sub.b is hydrogen.
6. A method as defined in claim 1 or 2 wherein R.sub.a and R.sub.b are hydrogen.
7. A method as defined in claim 2 which comprises the administration of 2,5-diamino-2-fluoromethylpentanoic acid.
8. A method as defined in claim 2 which comprises the administration of 2,5-diamino-2-difluoromethylpentanoic acid.
