Potent and selective thromboxane A2/prostaglandin endoperoxide receptor antagonist (IC50 = 5.5 nM). Inhibits U-44069-induced contractions of guinea pig trachea (pA2 = 9.0) and human platelet aggregation in vitro (IC50 = 6.5 nM). Also prevents thromboxane-mediated endothelial cell death. Orally active in vivo.

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.
