A series of 1-methyl-4-(4-X-arylsulfonyl)pyrrolo[2,3-d]imidazo-le-5-carboxylates were synthesized and tested as anti-inflammatory agents. Indomethacin was used as reference drug. Two of the synthesized compounds 7a and 7b had an effect equal to 0.1 of indomethacin. Our result showed that the electron-withdrawing substituents in the para position of the benzensulfonyl moiety increase activity.
