FUT-175, 6-amidino-2-naphthyl p-guanidinobenzoate dimethanesulfonate (nafamstat mesilate), a novel synthetic protease-inhibiting agent, was studied to determine its in vitro effects against various proteases and other enzymes, as well as to determine its in vivo protease inhibitory effects. FUT-175 was found to inhibit, in an intense, specific and(More)
The regulation of expression of the arginine-recycling enzymes and arginase isoforms in association with inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the eye of endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU) rats is investigated. An animal model of EIU was created in Wistar rats by intravitreal injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). mRNAs for argininosuccinate synthase (AS)(More)
Inhibitory effects of FUT-175 (nafamstat mesilate) on coagulation, platelets and fibrinolysis were examined. FUT-175 prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time, thrombin time and prothrombin time in rabbit plasma. FUT-175 prolonged these coagulation times in human plasma at lower concentration than in rabbit plasma. FUT-175 inhibited platelet(More)
We studied the adhesive and sealing effects of sheet style fibrin adhesive, TO-193 (TachoComb), on some tissues and organs, comparing them with those of sheet style collagen agent, collagen sponge, Novacol, and Avitene and liquid fibrin adhesive agent, Beriplast P. TO-193 showed more a potent adhesive effect on liver than the sheet style collagen agents and(More)
1. The effects of FUT-175 on the development of adjuvant arthritis in rats were studied and compared with those of indomethacin. FUT-175 inhibited both primary and secondary paw lesions in the adjuvant arthritic rats when it was administered orally on a daily basis from the day before through 18th day after adjuvant injection. 2. In addition, FUT-175(More)
The effects of FUT-187 (6-amidino-2-naphthyl 4-[(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)amino]benzoate dimethanesulfonate, CAS 103926-82-5), a novel synthetic protease inhibitor, were examined in experimental rat and canine models of pancreatitis. 1. FUT-187 significantly increased the survival of rats with trypsin- and phospholipase A2-induced pancreatitis in a(More)
In order to elucidate the immunological mechanism in the pathogenesis of pityriasis rosea, immunofluorescent studies were performed on sera obtained from forty patients with this disease. Antibodies against the cytoplasm of normal human epidermal cells were demonstrated in the sera of all patients. The antibody titer showed a tendency to increase within 3(More)
Anti-inflammatory effects of FUT-175 (nafamstat mesilate), a new synthetic serine protease inhibitor, on various types of experimental inflammation were investigated in vivo and in vitro, in comparison with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). The in vivo studies showed that FUT-175 has the abilities to inhibit almost all types of inflammatory(More)
