We report the synthesis and evaluation of a novel PPARδ agonist, compound 12a, characterized by a benzisoxazole ring. Compound 12a exhibited a potent human PPARδ transactivation activity (EC50: 0.011 μM). Preliminary biological testing suggests that compound 12a has significant HDL-cholesterol elevating effect in an animal model of dyslipidemia.
