DescriptionSB-681323 is a p38 MAP-kinase inhibitor that has potential uses in inflammatory conditions such as RA(Rheumatoid Arthritis). Previous p38 MAP-kinase inhibitors have been hindered in development by liver toxicity. Methotrexate (common treatment for RA patients) also has potential liver toxicity.

Mechanism of actionThis drug reduces the levels of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines and reduce cellular infiltration to sites of inflammation, thereby reducing local damage. In diseases such as RA and IBD, TNFα blockade through either anti-TNFα antibodies or use of soluble TNFα receptors. Inhibition of p38α offers significant inhibition of TNFα, and cytokines such as IL-1β and IL-6, which offer additional therapeutic efficacy.

General Function:
Tumor necrosis factor receptor binding
Specific Function:
Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. It is mainly secreted by macrophages and can induce cell death of certain tumor cell lines. It is potent pyrogen causing fever by direct action or by stimulation of interleukin-1 secretion and is implicated in the induction of cachexia, Under certain conditions it can stimulate cell proliferation and induce cell differentiation. Impairs ...
