In vitro:
Treatment with NLRP3 Inflammasome Inhibitor I significantly limits IL-1β release after LPS and ATP challenge. NLRP3 Inflammasome Inhibitor I is not a caspase-1 inhibitor[1].

In vivo:
The small molecule NLRP3 Inflammasome Inhibitor I, an intermediate substrate in the glyburide synthesis free of the cyclohexylurea moiety, inhibits the formation of the NLRP3 inflammasome in cardiomyocytes and limits the infarct size following myocardial ischemia/reperfusion in the mouse, without affecting glucose metabolism[1].
