Therapeutic effects of nonerythropoietic erythropoietin analog ARA290 in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis rat

Abstract: ARA290 is a nonerythropoietic analog of erythropoietin (EPO) containing 11 amino acids which provides the anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects of EPO without stimulating hematopoiesis. Here we studied the therapeutic effects of ARA290 in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) Lewis rats. Therapeutic (from Day 7 to Day 18 or from Day 9 to Day 19) administration of ARA290 (35, 70μg/kg, intra-peritoneal) to EAE rats once daily significantly reduced the severity and shortened the duration of clinical score, reduced the accumulation of inflammatory cells in EAE spinal cords and suppressed mRNA levels of interleukin-1β (IL-1β), IL-17, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interferon-γ (IFN-γ), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9)…
