Drug Names(s): P2X7 Antagonist
Description: Evotec's P2X7 antagonist is a novel small molecule. The P2X7 receptor is a member of a family of ligand-gated ion channels and is found primarily in cells of the immune systems where it is thought to play a role in inflammatory processes. As it has been shown to initiate the processing and release of the IL-1 family of cytokines, it is believed to play a critical role in the inflammation. The receptor has been implicated in the dependent lysis of macrophages. It may also be found in the central nervous system.
