The vanilloid receptor TRPV1 has been identified as a molecular target for the treatment of pain associated with inflammatory diseases and cancer. Hence, TRPV1 antagonists have been considered for therapeutic evaluation in such diseases. During Phase I clinical trials with AMG 517, a highly selective TRPV1 antagonist, we found that TRPV1 blockade elicited(More)
The Third AAPS/FDA Bioanalytical Workshop, entitled “Quantitative Bioanalytical Methods Validation and Implementation: Best Practices for Chromatographic and Ligand Binding Assays” was held on May 1–3, 2006 in Arlington, VA. The format of this workshop consisted of presentations on bioanalytical topics, followed by discussion sessions where these topics(More)
In-vitro studies were conducted to assess the impact of CYP2C9 genotype on the metabolism (methyl hydroxylation) and pharmacokinetics of celecoxib, a novel cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor and CYP2C9 substrate. When compared to cDNA-expressed wild-type CYP2C9 (CYP2C9*1), the Vmax/Km ratio for celecoxib methyl hydroxylation was reduced by 34% and 90% in the(More)
Raf inhibitors are under clinical investigation, specifically in patients with tumor types harboring frequent activating mutations in B-Raf. Here, we show that cell lines and tumors harboring mutant B-Raf were sensitive to a novel series of Raf inhibitors (e.g., (V600E)B-Raf A375, IC(50) on cells = 2 nmol/L; ED(50) on tumor xenografts = 1.3 mg/kg). However,(More)
The single- and multiple-dose pharmacokinetics of etoricoxib, a selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2, were examined in two clinical studies. Single-dose pharmacokinetics--including dose proportionality, absolute bioavailability of the highest dose-strength (120-mg) tablet, and the effect of a high-fat meal on the bioavailability of that tablet--were(More)
INTRODUCTION Hepcidin, a 25-amino acid peptide hormone, plays a crucial regulatory role in iron metabolism. Elevated hepcidin has been observed in response to inflammation and is speculated to be a causative factor in inflammatory anemia due to induction of functional iron deficiency. Hepcidin has been suggested as a biomarker of anemia of inflammation. An(More)
The discovery and optimization of a novel series of aminoisoquinolines as potent, selective, and efficacious inhibitors of the mutant B-Raf pathway is presented. The N-linked pyridylpyrimidine benzamide 2 was identified as a potent, modestly selective inhibitor of the B-Raf enzyme. Replacement of the benzamide with an aminoisoquinoline core significantly(More)
Co-crystals are relatively novel in the pharmaceutical field and are not reported extensively. AMG 517 is an insoluble small molecule VR1 (vanilloid receptor 1) antagonist. In animal studies, good exposure of AMG 517 is seen from a 10% (w/v) Pluronic F108 in OraPlus suspension. Investigation of the suspension formulation revealed that AMG 517 forms a(More)
Thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) is an important regulator of fibrinolysis, and inhibitors of this enzyme have potential use in antithrombotic and thrombolytic therapy. Appropriately substituted imidazole acetic acids such as 10j were found to be potent inhibitors of activated TAFI and selective versus the related carboxypeptidases CPA,(More)
A series of conformationally constrained derivatives of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) were designed and evaluated. By use of [Gly (8)]GLP-1(7-37)-NH2 (2) peptide as a starting point, 17 cyclic derivatives possessing i to i + 4, i to i + 5, or i to i + 7 side chain to side chain lactam bridges from positions 18 to 30 were prepared. The effect of a(More)
