Biological Activity for ISO 1

ISO 1 is a macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) inhibitor (IC50 = 7 μM); inhibits MIF tautomerase activity in vitro and in vivo. Protective against mouse models of streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus; blocks anti-inflammatory response following LPS exposure and increases survival. Inhibits airway remodeling in a mouse model of chronic asthma. Cell permeable; orally bioavailable.

Asthma Poster

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world, affecting over 300 million people. This poster highlights key pathways and new therapies used to treat the condition, including those currently in clinical development.


Pain Poster

Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis Poster

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic destructive inflammatory autoimmune disease that results from a breakdown in immune tolerance, for reasons that are as yet unknown. This poster summarizes the pathology of RA and the inflammatory processes involved, as well as describing some of the epigenetic modifications associated with the disease and the potential for targeting these changes in the discovery of new treatments.
