GW501516 is a PPARδ receptor agonist. Endurobol was entered into clinical development as a drug candidate for metabolic diseases and cardiovascular diseases, and was abandoned in 2007 because animal testing showed that the drug caused cancer to develop rapidly in several organs.

How to use

In Vitro:

GW501516 is shown to be the most potent and selective PPARα agonists known with an EC50 of 1.1 nM against PPARα and 1000-fold selectivity over the other human subtypes, PPARα and-γ. GW501516 exerts anti-inflammatory effects in mouse cultured proximal tubular (mProx) cells. GW501516 inhibits palmitate- and TNFα-induced increases in MCP-1 mRNA expression in a dose-dependent manner.

In Vivo:

GW501516 causes impaired bone formation, leading to decreased BMD and deterioration of bone properties in OVX rats. GW501516 attenuates interstitial inflammation and proximal tubular cell damage in a protein-overload mouse nephropathy model. GW501516 treatment enhances running endurance and the proportion of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)-positive muscle fibres in both trained and untrained mice.
