The mouse has proven to be an excellent model for testing apolipoprotein mimetic peptides as agents to treat a variety of vascular inflammatory conditions including atherosclerosis, cognitive dysfunction associated with arteriole inflammation, chronic rejection of transplanted hearts, and scleroderma. The mechanism of action appears to relate to the ability of these peptides to preferentially bind pro-inflammatory oxidized lipids and is independent of the chirality of the peptides since peptides synthesized from either D- or L-amino acids appear to be equally effective.

More about this publication?
  • Current Drug Targets aims to cover the latest and most outstanding developments on the medicinal chemistry and pharmacology of molecular drug targets e.g. disease specific proteins, receptors, enzymes, genes. Each issue of the journal will be devoted to a single timely topic, with series of in-depth reviews, written by leaders in the field, covering a range of current topics on drug targets. These issues will be organized and led by a guest editor who is a recognized expert in the overall topic. As the discovery, identification, characterisation and validation of novel human drug targets for drug discovery continues to grow; this journal will be essential reading for all pharmaceutical scientists involved in drug discovery and development.
