EP4 receptor antagonist that is selective over all other members of the prostanoid receptor family (Ki values are 0.024, 0.71, 1.90, 5.10, 5.63, 6.74, 19 and 23 μM for human EP4, TP, EP3, DP, FP, IP, EP1 and EP2 receptors respectively). Suppresses PGE2-induced bone formation in rats and prevents the nociceptive response induced by misoprostol in formalin-injected mice.

Literature in this Area
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.
