Description

CDP323 is an antagonist of the vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) binding to alpha4-integrins (other adhesion molecules), a process thought to be implicated in the pathophysiology of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It is considered a small-molecule prodrug. CDP323 was originally developed by the British biopharmaceutical company Celltech plc. (now UCB S.A.) and is a putative new drug for oral treatment of multiple sclerosis.

Investigated for use/treatment in multiple sclerosis.

Mechanism of action

CDP323 is believed to stop immune cells from migrating from blood vessels walls to reach other tissues, including tissues in the central nervous system, where they can cause encephalomyelitis (or inflammation of the white matter in the brain and spinal cord). This inhibition of cell migration prevents immunogenic reactions that lead to tissue damage, which is often a consequence of uncontrolled cell migration.

Specific Function
Integrins alpha-4/beta-1 (VLA-4) and alpha-4/beta-7 are receptors for fibronectin. They recognize one or more domains within the alternatively spliced CS-1 and CS-5 regions of fibronectin. They are...
