IC50: 12.2 μM for DU145 cells

STA-21 is a STAT3 inhibitor.

STAT-3, a transcription factor encoded by the STAT-3 gene, exists in a latent form in the cytoplasm. STAT-3 will be phosphorylated on tyrosine residues upon receptor activation by cytokines including IL-6, and forms homo- or heterodimers translocating to the cell nucleus. STAT-3 is also the major transcription factor in Th17 cell differentiation, and STAT-3 can be activated in inflamed synovium, which has been demonstrated in a RA animal model.

In vitro: Previous in vitro study showed that, in both mouse and human CD4+ T cells, the treatment with STA-21 could induce the expression of FoxP3 and repressed IL-17 expression. In addition, STA-21 was able to prevent both human monocytes and mouse BMM cells from differentiating into osteoclasts [1].

In vivo: In previous animal study, IL-1Ra-KO mice were treated with i.p. injections of STA-21 at 0.5 mg/kg 3 times per week for 3 weeks. Results showed that STA-21 could suppress inflammatory arthritis in IL-1Ra-KO mice. The Th17 cell proportion decreased and the proportion of Treg cells expressing FoxP3 was increased in the spleens of STA-21-treated mice markedly. Moreover, the adoptive transfer of CD4+CD25+ T cells from STA-21-treated IL-1Ra-KO mice suppressed inflammatory arthritis markedly [1].

Clinical trial: The topical efficacy of STA-21on psoriasis has been conducted at 2010, however, this study has been completed [https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01047943].

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 saline, 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.
