Chymase is a chymotrypsin-like serine protease exclusively stored in secretory granules of mast cells and has been thought to participate in allergic diseases. It has already been shown that chymase inhibitor SUN13834 improves dermatitis in NC/Nga mice that spontaneously develop dermatitis resembling atopic dermatitis. In the present study, effect of(More)
A chymase inhibitor SUN13834 has been shown to improve skin condition in animal models for atopic dermatitis. In the present study, effective dosages of SUN13834 for atopic dermatitis patients were predicted by pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) analyses of SUN13834 in NC/Nga mice, which spontaneously develop atopic dermatitis-like skin lesions. For(More)
Purpose. The local absorption kinetics of levofloxacin from the intestinal tract was quantitatively evaluated by simultaneously measuring the portal and venous plasma concentrations in a conscious rat. Methods. The venous and upper portal blood vessels were cannulated through the jugular and pyloric veins, respectively. After oral or intravenous(More)
Inflammation is a fundamental defensive response to harmful stimuli. However, it can cause damage if it does not subside. To avoid such damage, organisms have developed a mechanism called resolution of inflammation. Here we applied an untargeted metabolomics approach to a sterile and self-resolving animal model of acute inflammation, namely zymosan-induced(More)
Traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) results in direct physical damage and the generation of local factors contributing to secondary pathogenesis. Untargeted metabolomic profiling was used to uncover metabolic changes and to identify relationships between metabolites and neurobehavioral functions in the spinal cord after injury in rats. In the early metabolic(More)

This article describes the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of new indole-based cytosolic phospholipase A2α (cPLA2α, a group IVA phospholipase A2) inhibitors. A screening-hit compound from our library, (E)-3-{4-[(4-chlorophenyl)thio]-3-nitrophenyl}acrylic acid (5), was used to design a class of 3-(1-aryl-1H-indol-5-yl)propanoic acids as new(More)
