PD 146176 is a potent and selective inhibitor of reticulocyte 15-lipoxygenase-1.1 It limits hypercholesterolemia-induced atherosclerosis in New Zealand White rabbits 2,1 and reduces oxidant stress-induced apoptosis in endothelial cells.3 PD 146176 inhibits amyloid β protein aggregate formation without changing total levels of amyloid β precursor protein (APP) in cells stably expressing APP.4 In addition, it lacks significant non-specific antioxidant properties.2
