Abstract Balanced modulation of several targets is one of the current strategies for the treatment of multi-factorial diseases. Based on the knowledge of inflammation mechanisms, it was inferred that the balanced inhibition of cyclooxygenase-1/cyclooxygenase-2/lipoxygenase might be a promising approach for treatment of such a multifactorial disease state as inflammation. Detection of fragments responsible for interaction with enzyme’s binding site provides the basis for designing new molecules with increased affinity and selectivity. A new chemoinformatics approach was proposed and applied to create a fragment library that was used to design novel inhibitors of cycloxygenase-1/cycloxygenase-2/lipoxygenase enzymes. Potential binding sites were elucidated by docking. Synthesis of novel compounds, and the in vitro/in vivo biological testing confirmed the results of computational studies. The benzothiazolyl moiety was proved to be of great significance for developing more potent inhibitors.
