Activation of CCR1
and CCR5 in inflammatory cells by CCL3 induces pro-inflammatory activities, such as chemotactic migration and inflammatory mediator generation.
Results from the CARAT-2 study have demonstrated clinical proof-of-concept of CCR1
inhibition in the treatment of RA," stated Thomas J.
51) Therefore, CCR1
might simply have been the wrong target in MS.
The [3-68] variant form of RANTES was subsequently found to also inhibit HIV to the same degree but to lack the same binding affinity to the CCR1
Pharmacopeia's most advanced internal programs are: dual angiotensin (AT1) and endothelin (ETA) receptor antagonists (DARA) (for cardiovascular disease); JAK3 inhibitors (immunomodulators for multiple potential indications, including transplant rejection, psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis); CCR1
antagonists (with potential application in the treatment of inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis); and adenosine A2A antagonists (with potential application in neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's and Alzheimer's).
CCR3 and CCR5 but not CCR1
expressions are unregulated in cerebellum and cerebrum of CM tissue samples.
Expression of mRNA was analyzed by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) for the following: CXCL10, CCL3, CCL4, CCL5, CCR1
, CCR4, CCR5, CXCR3 and [beta]-actin.

Chemokine Receptor (CCR1
): Ligand is conducting preclinical development from the internal chemokine receptor CCR1
Separately, ChemoCentryx and Forest Laboratories entered into a collaboration to co-develop small molecule antagonists targeting the CCR1
receptor for the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
