General description

A cell-permeable, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, anti-pyretic agent. Non-selective cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitor (IC50 = 740 nM for COX-1; IC50 = 970 nM for COX-2). Inhibits phospholipase A2 (IC50 = 145 µM). Reported to reduce Aβ42 levels independently of COX activity.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, cell permeable, antipyretic agent. Non-selective COX inhibitor (IC50 = 740 nM for COX-1; IC50 = 970 nM for COX-2). Inhibits phospholipase A2 (IC50 = 145 µM). Strongly inhibits insoluble transthyretin (TTR) amyloid fibril formation and suppresses production of Aβ-peptide and secreted form of APP by inhibition of APP mRNA levels in NG108-15 cells.
