The synthesis and pharmacological activity of new nonpeptide angiotensin II (AII) receptor antagonists are presented. These 5-O-substituted and 5-C-substituted 3-alkylpyrazole derivatives represent a new series of antagonists and have led to the discovery of compounds with potent oral antihypertensive activity in a renal artery-ligated rat model. In vitro, they displayed a high affinity for rat adrenal AII receptors. In vivo structure-activity relationship study has shown the importance of the 4-[2'-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)biphenyl-4-yl]methyl moiety for oral activity and the critical role of alkyl substituents at the 1- or 2-position. In the case of oral administration, 5-C derivatives were found to be, on the whole, more potent than 5-O derivatives. UP 221-78, 5-hydroxymethyl-3-n-propyl-1-(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)-4- [[2'-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)biphenyl-4-]methyl]-1H-pyrazole (79), displayed equivalent antihypertensive activity to the well known antagonist Losartan at 3 mg/kg p.o. in renal artery-ligated rats, with maximal decreases in mean arterial pressure of 60 and 63 mmHg for Losartan and UP 221-78, respectively.
