Datasheet of Ramatroban

Description: Ramatroban (BAY u3405) is a thromboxane A(2) (TxA(2)) antagonist marketed for allergic rhinitis. Ramatroban (Baynas, BAY u3405), a thromboxane A(2) (TxA(2)) antagonist marketed for allergic rhinitis, has been shown to partially attenuate prostaglandin (PG)D(2)-induced bronchial hyperresponsiveness in humans, as well as reduce antigen-induced early- and late-phase inflammatory responses in mice, guinea pigs, and rats. PGD(2)-stimulated human eosinophil migration was shown to be mediated exclusively through activation of CRTH2, and surprisingly, these effects were completely inhibited by ramatroban. This is also the first report detailing an orally bioavailable small molecule CRTH2 antagonist. Our findings suggest that clinical efficacy of ramatroban may be in part mediated through its action on this Th2-, eosinophil-, and basophil-specific chemoattractant receptor. Ramatroban can block the newly identified PGD2 receptor, chemoattractant receptor-homologous molecule expressed on Th2 cells (CRTh2). Ramatroban suppresses the late-phase inflammation via TP receptor and CRTh2 blockade. Ramatroban can suppress the expression of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and adhesion molecules in endothelial cells and prevent exacerbation of inflammation by blocking these responses.
