SKF 86002 is a bicyclic imidazole that specifically inhibits p38 MAP kinase, and is also described as a cytokine-suppressant and an anti-inflammatory compound. SKF 86002 has been shown to inhibit Cox (cyclooxygenase) activity and 5-LO (5-lipoxygenase). Osteoblastic cell studies report that SKF 86002 inhibits the production of IL-6. SKF 86002 has been shown to block the activation of TNF-translation and potently inhibit IL-1.
