A series of novel compounds have been designed that are potent inhibitors of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1), and the activity and physical properties have been characterized. The new structural classes, 3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-1H-azepino[5,4,3-cd]indol-6-ones and 3,4-dihydropyrrolo[4,3,2-de]isoquinolin-5-(1H)-ones, have conformationally locked benzamide cores that specifically interact with the PARP-1 protein. The compounds have been evaluated with in vitro cellular assays that measure the ability of the PARP-1 inhibitors to enhance the effect of cytotoxic agents against cancer cell lines.
