Description

DG051 is a novel small-molecule inhibitor of leukotriene A4 hydrolase (LTA4H), the protein made by one of the genes in the leukotriene pathway that has been shown to link to risk of heart attack. DG051 is designed to decrease risk of heart attack by decreasing the production of leukotriene B4 (LTB4), an end product of the leukotriene pathway and a potent promoter of inflammation.

Mechanism of action

DG051 is an inhibitor of leukotriene A4 hydrolase (LTA4H)which has been shown to link to risk of heart attack, and is directly involved in the synthesis of LTB4. By inhibiting LTA4H, DG051 decreases risk of heart attack by decreasing the production of leukotriene B4 (LTB4), an end product of the leukotriene pathway and a potent promoter of inflammation.
