Product Information:

bVT-2733 is a selective 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) inhibitor, which attenuates obesity and inflammation in diet-induced obese mice. BVT-2733 protects osteoblasts against endogenous glucocorticoid induced dysfunction. BVT-2733 exhibits an anti-inflammatory effect on CIA. This protective effect is, at least partly, mediated by inhibition of the NF-κB and NLRP1 inflammasome signaling pathways. 11β-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 1 (11β-HSD1) plays an important role in inflammation. 11β-HSD1 inhibition may represent a potential therapeutic target for RA patients.

In Vitro

BVT 2733 (100 μM; 24 hours) co-treatment with PA (100 µM) reduces MCP-1 expression in fully differentiation adipocytes.

BVT 2733 (50-100 μM; 24 hours) reduces the inflammation protein levels (MCP-1, IL-6) in medium in J774.1 macrophages by Elisa.


In Vivo

BVT-2733 (oral administration; 100 mg/kg; twice daily; 2 weeks) attenuates the arthritis severity and anti-CII level and decreases the levels of serum TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6 and IL-17 in CIA mice.

BVT 2733 (oral administration; 100 mg/kg; dosed (09.00 and 17.00 h); last 4 weeks) exhibits decreased body weight and enhanced glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity when it compares to control mice. It also down-regulated the expression of inflammation-related genes including monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and the number of infiltrated macrophages within the adipose tissue in vivo.
