Vicinal 1-(4-methylsulfonyl)benzene-5-(3-pyridyl) substituted pyrazole compound containing a nitric oxide (NO)-donating group at the 3-position of the pyrazole ring was synthesized and evaluated for its ability to inhibit COX isozymes in human whole blood. We report here the synthesis of 4-{3-[(1Z)-4- (nitrooxy)but-1-enyl]-5-(3-pyridyl)pyrazolyl}-1-(4-methylsulfonyl)benzene (9) and its COX-2 inhibitory potency.

Keywords: cyclooxygenase, pyrazole, anti-inflammatory, cox-2, no-cox-2, no-donor
