APY0201 is a potent and selective IL-12/23 inhibitor. APY0201 demonstrates ameliorated inflammation in an experimental model of colitis. Interleukin-12 (IL-12) and IL-23 are proinflammatory cytokines and therapeutic targets for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel diseases, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.

How to use
APY0201 works differently from anti-IL-12/23 antibodies and acts by inhibiting production of these proinflammatory cytokines with characteristic selectivity over other cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α). In stimulated thioglycollate-induced mouse peritoneal exudate cells (TG-PEC), APY0201 strongly inhibits IL-12p70 and IL-12p40 production, with IC50s of 8.4 and 16 nM, respectively. APY0201 also inhibits IL-12p40 at 99 nM in human PBMC. APY0201 shows significant selectivity for the production of IL-12p70 and IL-12p40 over TNF-α, and this selectivity is maintained across species.
Oral APY0201 at a 30 mg/kg dose shows significant reduction of IL-12p70 production (78% inhibition relative to that of the vehicle control), which implys that the inhibitory potential of APY0201 against IL-12 is confirmed in the animal experiment.
