High throughput screening identified a pyrrolidinone containing acidic functionality as a CCR2 antagonist of modest affinity. We describe initial SAR around this hit, including solution phase parallel synthesis for analog preparation, and we describe identification and characterization of an analog subsequently selected as a viable lead molecule for further optimization.
