A new series of cyclic sulfonamide derivatives was synthesized and evaluated for their ability to inhibit 11β-HSD1. Cyclic sulfonamides with phenylacetyl substituents at the 2-position showed nanomolar inhibitory activities. Among them, compound 4e exhibited a good in vitro inhibitory activity and selectivity toward human 11β-HSD2.
