  • Publication number: 20140371445
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a quinic acid derivative, preparation process of the same and pharmaceutical uses thereof. The quinic acid derivative has a quinic acid-like structure which binds to CD28, blocks T-cell signal 2 pathway via CD28, and suppresses T-cell activation. The C-1 carboxyl group, the C-3 hydroxyl group and the C-4 hydroxyl group of quinic acid are modified to attenuate the cytotoxicity of the quinic acid derivative. The preparation process of the quinic acid derivative comprises 2 steps of: treating quinic acid with the first reagent in the presence of the acid catalyst to form an immediate; and treating the immediate with the second reagent to from the quinic acid derivative. With the ability to suppress T-cell activation, the quinic acid derivative is used to treats an autoimmune disease, an allergy, transplant rejection or other related immune disorder.
