Product Overview:
5-Aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) is a metabolite and potential pharmacologically active component of sulphasalazine, a drug used in the treatment of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. However, the mechanism by which this drug works has not been established. In whole blood assays, 5-ASA proves to be a weak, non-selective inhibitor of both COX-1 and COX-2 with IC50 values of 410 and 61 µM, respectively.{8427} In ionophore-stimulated colonic mucosal cells, 1 mM 5-ASA does not inhibit prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) production, but does reduce leukotriene B4 (LTB4) synthesis approx. 50%.{8429} In ionophore-stimulated human leukocytes, 400 µM 5-ASA reduces LTB4 production approximately 20%.{8435} 5-ASA does not inhibit 15-hydroxy PGDH at concentrations up to 50 µM.{8455}

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
