HPGDS inhibitor 1 is a novel and selective Hematopoietic Prostaglandin D Synthase (HPGDS) inhibitor with an IC50 Value of 0.7 nM.
IC50 Value: 0.7 nM 
HPGDS inhibitor 1 was elected for further profiling based on its enzyme and cell potency. The compound illustrated equal potency against purified HPGDS from human , rat, dog, and sheep (IC50, 0.5-2.3 nM). HPGDS inhibitor 1 was profiled in a panel of cellular assays to screen for activity against several relevant human enzyme targets. Those assay indicated that HPGDS inhibitor 1 does not inhibit human L- PGDS, m-PGDS, COX-1, COX-2 or 5 LOX (IC50 values > 10000 nM).
HPGDS inhibitor 1 had a solubility of 1.5 ug/ml (3.9 uM) at pH 6.5. The compound had excellent PK characteristics when dosed in rats at 1 mpk with 76% bioavailavility.
Rats dosed orally with 1 and 10 mpk HPGDS inhibitor 1 were sacrificed at various times, and plasma concentrations of HPGDS inhibitor 1 and spleen PGD2 concentrations were measured. Oral administration of HPGDS inhibitor 1 blocked PGD2 production in the rat spleen; inhibition of PGD2 was inversely correlated with the plasma concentration of HPGDS inhibitor 1 in a time and dose-dependent manner. Spleen PGD2 levels fall as HPGDS inhibitor 1 plasma levels increase over time; PGD2 levels return to baseline levels as HPGDS inhibitor 1 plasma levels decline.
. Chris P. Carron, et al. Discovery of an Oral Potent Selective Inhibitor of Hematopoietic Prostaglandin D Synthase (HPGDS). ACS Med. Chem. Lett., 2010, 1 (2), pp 59-63 Abstract Hematopoietic prostaglandin D synthase (HPGDS) is primarly expressed in mast cells, antigen-presenting cells, and Th-2 cells. HPGDS converts PGH(2) into PGD(2), a mediator thought to play a pivotal role in airway allergy and inflammatory processes. In this letter, we report the discovery of an orally potent and selective inhibitor of HPGDS that reduces the antigen-induced response in allergic sheep.
