Datasheet of Apilimod

Description: Apilimod(STA 5326) is a potent IL-12/IL-23 inhibitor, IL-12 production in cultures of IFN-r/LPS–stimulated human PBMCs is strongly inhibited by STA-5326 with an IC50 of 10 nM. in vitro: STA-5326 not only inhibited IL-12, but it also potently inhibited IL-23 and total p40 products in various forms as monomer, homodimer, and heterodimerin IFN-/SAC–stimulated human PBMCs. STA-5326 inhibited IFN-r production induced by either IFN-/SAC or SAC in human PBMCs, with an IC50 of approximately 20 nM, while the compound had no significant effect on the production when T cells were stimulated using anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 antibodies, suggesting that the T-cell– receptor–dependent production of IFN-that occurs independently of suppression of Th1 cells via inhibition of IL-12 is not directly inhibited by the compound. in vivo: Patients with CD responded within 14 days of treatment with apilimod and, after 28 days, the drug significantly reduced the Crohn's disease activity index (CDAI). Apilimod is currently in phase II clinical trials for rheumatoid arthritis, common variable immunodeficiency and CD. From the data available to date, apilimod appears to be a promising treatment for CD, and the oral formulation of this compound provides an advantage for apilimod over injectable therapies. Oral administration of either 5 mg/kg or 20 mg/kg STA-5326 reduced the severity of EAU on day 14 and 18. In addition, mice treated with 20 mg/kg STA-5326 showed significantly decreased severity of EAU by histopathological analysis.
