Tranilast | Antiallergy agent

Tranilast (53902-12-8) is an anti-allergy agent (inhibitor of mast cell degranulation) that has been shown to have potent immunomodulatory effects via inhibition of endotoxin induced: PGE2, IC50 = 1-20 μM; TXB2, IC50 = 10-50 μM; TGFβ1, IC50 = 100-200 μM; IL-8, IC50 = 100 μM .1,2,3 Tranilast also displays anti-angiogenic properties.4,5
