Description: Merimepodib, also known as VX-497, is orally bioavailable IMPDH inhibitor, which inhibits the proliferation of primary human, mouse, rat, and dog lymphocytes at concentrations of approximately 100 nM. In vivo, oral administration of VX-497 inhibits the primary IgM antibody response in a dose-dependent manner, with an ED(50) value of approximately 30-35 mg/kg in mice. Single daily dosing of VX-497 is observed to be as effective as twice-daily dosing in this model of immune activation. These studies demonstrate that VX-497 is a potent, specific, and reversible IMPDH inhibitor that selectively inhibits lymphocyte proliferation.
