Biological Activity:


RVX-208 is a potent and selective BET bromodomain inhibitor with an IC50 of 0.51 μM for the second bromodomain (BD2), which is about 170-fold selectivity over BD1. RVX 208 binds to the acetyl-lysine binding pocket in a peptide-competitive manner, increases apoA-I and HDL-C in vitro and in vivo. In AGMs, RVX-208 raises serum pre-beta(1)-LpA-I and alpha-LpA-I levels and enhances cholesterol efflux. RVX-208 is the first-in-class BD2-selective inhibitor of BET bromodomain tested in Phase II clinical trials for treatment of coronary syndromes and atherosclerosis.


How to Use:



  • In vitro: RVX-208 was used at 10 µM final concentration in various in vitro assays.
  • In vivo: RVX-208 was dosed to naïve adult male African green monkeys (AGMs) by oral gavage or intravenous administration at 60 mg/kg once per day.
