KD025 down-regulates the IL-17 and IL-21 secretion in human PBMCs, and leads to down-regulation of STAT3 phosphorylation, IRF4, and RORγt expression in CD4+ T cells. [2] KD025 inhibits the secretion of IL-21, IL-17, and IFNγ along with decreasing phosphorylated STAT3 and reduced protein expression of IRF4 and BCL6 in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. [3]

In vivo In mice, KD025 (200 mg/kg, p.o.) inhibits ROCK activity in brain and heart, as measured by the degree of MYPT1 phosphorylation. KD025 (200 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly reduces the area of perfusion defect, and reduces tissue loss in the ipsilateral hemisphere. [1] In a collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) mouse model, KD025 (200 mg/kg, i.p.) downregulates the progression of collagen-induced arthritis via targeting of the Th17-mediated pathway. [2] KD025 ()150 mg/kg, i.p. or p.o.) effectively ameliorates cGVHD in a full MHC-mismatch model of multi-organ system cGVHD with bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome and a minor MHC-mismatch model of sclerodermatous GVHD.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
