Following our previous research on anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), we report here the synthesis of chiral 1,5-diarylpyrroles derivatives that were characterized for their in vitro inhibitory effects toward cyclooxygenase (COX) isozymes. Analysis of enzymatic affinity and COX-2 selectivity led us to the selection of one compound (+/-)-10b that was further tested in vitro in the human whole blood (HWB) and in vivo for its anti-inflammatory activity in mice. The affinity data have been rationalized through docking simulations.
