Molecular Formula:
Molecular Weight:
Roquinimex, also known as LS 2616 and FCF89 (brande name: Linomide), is a quinoline-3-carboxamide with potential antineoplastic activity. Roquinimex inhibits endothelial cell proliferation, migration, and basement membrane invasion; reduces the secretion of the angiogenic factor tumor necrosis factor alpha by tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs); and inhibits angiogenesis. This agent is also an immune modulator that appears to alter cytokine profiles and enhance the activity of T cells, natural killer cells, and macrophages. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.

1.Roquinimex-mediated protection effect on the development of chronic graft-versus-host disease in mice is associated with induction of Th1 cytokine production and inhibition of proinflammatory cytokine production.

Roquinimex is an immunomodulator that can effectively inhibit the development of several autoimmune diseases in animal models, but the mechanism is still unknown. In this study, we investigated the effect of roquinimex on chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in mice, a well-established model for human systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Oral administration of roquinimex significantly suppressed the development of proteinuria and ameliorated nephritis symptoms in chronic GVHD mice. In addition, renal histopathology and immunohistochemistry studies revealed reduced glomerulonephritis and decreased IgG deposition in chronic GVHD mice treated with roquinimex. Chronic GVHD is characterized by a predominance of Th2 cytokines, and proinflammatory cytokines that also play an important role in the pathology of tissue damage. Therefore, we focused on the effect of roquinimex on cytokine production. Chronic GVHD mouse splenocytes exhibited severely reduced interferon (IFN)-gamma production in response to Concanavalin (Con A) stimulation and an overt Th2 skewness.
