Lactams are cyclic amides of varying ring sizes, such as alpha, beta, and gamma lactams. β-lactams are notable antibiotics; however, lactam ring derivatives exhibit additional pharmacological effects. β-Lactam compounds demonstrated biological activity as inhibitors of a wide range of enzymes, including HFAAH inhibitors, HDAC inhibitors, anti-inflammatory drugs (tryptase inhibitors), Cathepsin K inhibitors, and vasopressin inhibitors, as well as anticancer and antitubercular activities.
