Evacetrapib is a potent and selective inhibitor of cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) with IC50 value of 5.5nM .
As a benzazepine-based inhibitor of CETP, evacetrapib is developed to increase HDL cholesterol for the treatment of coronary artery disease. Evacetrapib is efficacious both in vitro and in vivo. The IC50 values of evacetrapib against CETP are 5.5nM and 26nM, respectively in the buffer assay using human recombinant CETP and in the plasma assay using human plasma CETP. In the animal model of human CETP/ApoAI double transgenic mouse line, oral administration of evacetrapib at 30mg/kg significantly inhibits the CETP activity as well as increases the level of HDL. Besides that, the ED50 value of evacetrapib is less than 5mg/kg. Compared to the previous inhibitors of CETP, evacetrapib has less side effects. It is found no to increase blood pressure Zucker diabetic fatty rats and not to induce aldosterone or cortisol synthesis in H295R cells .
