A unique pyrrolidinone-based CCR2 antagonist with sub-micromolar in vitro activities, good selectivity, and reasonable ADME properties was identified following a screening campaign and subsequent hit-to-lead medicinal chemistry efforts. We now describe further modification of this lead molecule to provide compounds with excellent DMPK profiles and significantly enhanced in vitro activities.
