PF-04457845 is a potent and exquisitely selective inhibitor of the enzyme fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), with an IC50 of 7.2nM, and both analgesic and antiinflammatory effects in animal studies comparable to naproxen. It has been well tolerated in human trials even at high dose ranges with no evidence for cognitive dysfunction, and has completed Phase II clinical trials for the treatment of osteoarthritis, but was found to be ineffective.

How to use

In Vitro:

PF-04457845 inhibits FAAH by a covalent, irreversible mechanism involving carbamylation of the active-site serine nucleophile of FAAH with high in vitro potency (kinact/Ki and IC50 values of 40300 M-1s-1 and 7.2 nM, respectively, for human FAAH). PF-04457845 has exquisite selectivity for FAAH relative to other members of the serine hydrolase superfamily as demonstrated by competitive activity-based protein profiling. PF-04457845 completely inhibits FAAH in human and mouse membrane proteomes at both 10 and 100 μM with no off targets. PF-04457845 is completely selective for FAAH, and none of the other FP-reactive serine hydrolases in the tested tissues are inhibited by PF-04457845 even at 100 μM.

In Vivo:

Oral administration of PF-04457845 at 0.1 mg/kg results in efficacy comparable to that of naproxen at 10 mg/kg in a rat model of inflammatory pain. Oral administration of PF-04457845 causes a significant inhibition of mechanical allodynia measured after 4 h with a minimum effective dose (MED) of 0.1 mg/kg. Furthermore, at 0.1 mg/kg (p.o.), PF-04457845 inhibits the pain response to a comparable degree as the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug naproxen at 10 mg/kg. FAAH is confirmed to be completely inhibited in mice treated with PF-04457845 at 1 and 10 mg/kg p.o. by competitive activity-based protein profiling (ABPP) study.
