We have designed a series of simple rigid compounds (2) having a phenyl ring attached to three essential groups necessary for selectin binding, i.e., a fucose unit, a carboxylic acid, and the hydrophobic part. In this series of compound 2, 2a exhibited strong inhibitory activity in in vitro P-selectin mediated cell adhesion assay. The novel type of compound 2a would be a potential lead compound for selectin antagonist.
