Description: SB-242235 is a potent and selective p38 MAP kinase inhibitor that may be an effective therapy for cytokine-mediated diseases such as autoimmune or inflammatory diseases. SB-242235 demonstrates generally favourable pharmacokinetic properties. Systemic plasma clearance was high in rat, but in the non-rodent species SB-242235 demonstrated low to moderate clearance with plasma half-lives > 4h. Oral bioavailability in each preclinical species was high. In rat and monkey, SB-242235 demonstrated non-linear elimination kinetics that manifested as a decrease in clearance with increasing dose and apparent oral bioavailability > 100% at high oral doses.
