Finally, inhibition of nuclear factor kappa beta activity in this asthmatic model with the AT-101 may have broader implications with respect to beneficial effects in other chronic inflammatory diseases.
the Director of Chemistry at Bionovo states, "The discovery of the isomers from Rheum palmatum and the findings that these compounds have selective estrogen receptor beta activity proves the capabilities of Bionovo's medicinal chemistry approach that is coupled with cutting edge, physiologically relevant, biological assays.
