Disease relevance of HOE 077

  • The effect of a newly synthesized prolyl4-hydroxylase (PH) inhibitor, HOE 077 (pyridine-2, 4-di-carboxylic-di(2-methoxyethyl)amide), was examined using the model of choline-deficient L-amino acid (CDAA) defined diet-induced liver fibrosis in 16-week-old male Wistar rats [1].
  • They show HOE 077 to be a promising agent for the inhibition of hepatic fibrosis [2].

Chemical compound and disease context of HOE 077

  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect and mechanism of fibrosuppression by a newly synthesized prolyl 4-hydroxylase inhibitor [HOE 077, 2, 4-pyridine dicarboxylic acid bis [(2-methoxyethyl) amide]] on pig serum-induced liver fibrosis in the rat [7].

Biological context of HOE 077


Anatomical context of HOE 077


Gene context of HOE 077

  • We have demonstrated that antifibrotic agents, such as HOE 077, TJ-9 and interferon, can reduce the risk of HCC [11].
