A series of N-substituted 3-aminoglutarimides have been synthesized and tested for inhibitory activity against a range of chemokines in vitro and for suppression of lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation in vivo. The results show that they represent the first class of small molecules with broad-spectrum chemokine inhibitory effects. Among the compounds studied, 10 (NR58,4) was the most potent, being active at doses between 5 and 15 nM in vitro and at 0.3 mg kg(-1) in vivo.
