Description: PF-9184 is a potent and selective mPGES-1 inhibitor. PF-9184 potently inhibited recombinant human (rh) mPGES-1 (IC(50)=16.5+/-3.8nM), and had no effect against rhCOX-1 and rhCOX-2 (>6500-fold selectivity). PF-9184 inhibited PGE(2) synthesis (IC(50) in the range of 0.5-5 microM in serum-free cell and human whole blood cultures, respectively) while sparing the synthesis of 6-keto-PGF(1alpha) (PGF(1alpha)) and PGF(2alpha).

Additional Information

Inflammation-induced microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) is the terminal enzyme that synthesizes prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) downstream of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). The efficacy of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and COX-2 inhibitors in the treatment of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory pain, largely attributed to the inhibition of PGE(2) synthesis, provides a rationale for exploring mPGES-1 inhibition as a potential novel therapy for these diseases.
