We report the search for non-steroidal inhibitors of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, in particular, for types 1 and 3. The results show that the synthesised compounds based on the biphenyl backbone were good inhibitors of 17β-HSD1, but were weak inhibitors of 17β-HSD3. The compounds were evaluated against 3β-HSD but showed weak inhibition.

Keywords: 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, Type 3, Inhibition, Enzyme inhibition, Biphenyl ketones
