Biological Activity for Nimesulide

Nimesulide is a selective, orally active cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor. Produces potent analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic activities in vivo. Reported to produce fewer gastrointestinal side effects than standard NSAIDs. Also inhibits sodium-dependent neutral amino acid transporter B0AT1 (SLC6A19; IC50 = 23 μM).

Alzheimer's Poster

Alzheimer's Poster

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.
