Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) has been identified as a potential target for cardiovascular disease (CVD) for its important role in the reverse cholesteryl transfer (RCT) process. In our previous work, compound 5 was discovered as a moderate CETP inhibitor. The replacement of the amide linker by heterocyclic aromatics and then a series of N,N-substituted-4-arylthiazole-2-methylamine derivatives were designed by utilizing a conformational restriction strategy. Thirty-six compounds were synthesized and evaluated for their CETP inhibitory activities. Structure-activity relationship studies indicate that electron donor groups substituted ring A, and electron-withdrawing groups at the 4-position of ring B were critical for potency. Among these compounds, compound 30 exhibited excellent CETP inhibitory activity (IC50 = 0.79 ± 0.02 μM) in vitro and showed an acceptable metabolic stability.
