17α-Hydroxylase/17,20-lyase is a target in the treatment of hormone-dependent prostate cancer. Here we report
the results of a study into a range of alkanesulfonate derivatives of 4-hydroxybenzylimidazole which show the compounds
to be good inhibitors with 5 [IC50=1.11µM (17α-OHase) and IC50=1.28µM (lyase)] being the most potent but weaker than
