    J Med Chem 42:4909-13. 1999
    ..The assays are predictive for the in vivo efficacy of test compounds as indicated by a marked inhibitory effect of 2 in a thioglycollate induced peritonitis model of acute inflammation in mice (ED(50) approximately 15 mg/kg)...

    G Thoma
    Novartis Pharma AG, Basel, Switzerland
    Bioorg Med Chem Lett 11:923-5. 2001
    ..Furthermore, compound 5 was highly active (IC50 = 10 microM) in a dynamic non-equilibrium assay in which sLe(x) did not inhibit neutrophil rolling at up to 1000 microM...

    J Med Chem 47:1939-55. 2004
    ..One of these compounds, i.e., 26n, has good PK properties in cynos, and its overall favorable profile makes it a promising candidate for in vivo profiling in transplantation and other disease models...

    H G Zerwes
    Autoimmunity, Transplantation and Inflammation, Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, Basel, Switzerland
    Am J Transplant 8:1604-13. 2008
    ..In summary, Cxcr3 deficiency or pharmacologic blockade does not diminish graft infiltration, tempo and severity of rejection. Thus, Cxcr3 does not appear to play a pivotal role in the allograft rejection models described here...
