FK1706, a novel non-immunosuppressive immunophilin ligand, modifies the course of painful diabetic neuropathy


, : FK1706, a novel non-immunosuppressive immunophilin ligand, modifies the course of painful diabetic neuropathy. Neuropharmacology 55(7): 1226-1230

FK1706, a derivative of FK506, is a non-immunosuppressive immunophilin ligand with significant neurotrophic activity mediated via FKBP-52 and the RAS/RAF/MAPK signaling pathway. Here, we tested the effect of FK1706 on painful diabetic neuropathy in rat model of diabetes induced by streptozotocin (STZ). FK1706 ameliorated mechanical allodynia in this model at doses over 0.32 mg/kg, p.o., even if treatment was initiated after neuropathy was established, and did not affect plasma glucose levels.
