MK-0591

Cat No.
CEI-1424
Description
MK-0591 is a selective and specific inhibitor of 5-Lipoxygenase-activating protein (FLAP).
Product Overview
MK-0591, an analog of MK-886 is a potent and orally active leukotriene biosynthesis inhibitor with an IC50 value of 600 ng/ml. MK-0591 (250 mg) nearly completely inhibited systemic leukotriene synthesis (>90%) in whole blood or in patients with active disease, and induced LTB4 synthesis in the target tissue of inflammation. MK-0591 plays as a potential agent for the treatment of asthma and inflammatory bowel disease. MK-0591 specific interacted with 5-lipoxygenase, a membrane protein activating protein FLAP, which is essential for LT synthesis in inflammatory cells. MK-0591 inhibited 96% production of LTB4 in whole blood and 91% that from BAL cells. By contrast, MK-0591 had no effect on airway hyper-responsiveness, ozone-induced bronchoconstriction, or influx of neutrophils into BAL.
