09/01/1999 - "Two novel caspase inhibitors, (2-indolyl)-carbonyl-Ala-Asp-fluoromethylketone (IDN 1529) and (1-methyl-3-methyl-2-indolyl)-carbonyl-Val-Asp-fluoromethylketone (IDN 1965), were studied in a murine model of endotoxic shock. "
09/01/1999 - "Paradoxically, administration of IDN 1529 but not IDN 1965 led to an increase in the LPS-induced elevation of serum cytokines related directly (IL-1beta, IL-18) or indirectly (IL-1alpha, IL-1Ra) to the action of caspase 1. A process that appears to be distinct from both apoptosis and the release of inflammatory cytokines is a late-acting requirement for lethality in endotoxic shock. "
