Novel phosphoinositide 3-kinase δ,γ inhibitor: potent anti-inflammatory effects and joint protection in models of rheumatoid arthritis.

Phosphoinositide 3-kinases γ and δ (PI3Kγ and PI3Kδ) are expressed in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovium and regulate innate and adaptive immune responses. We determined the effect of a potent PI3Kδ,γ inhibitor, IPI-145, in two preclinical models of RA. IPI-145 was administered orally in rat adjuvant-induced arthritis (AA) and intraperitoneally in mouse… CONTINUE READING
