"AZX100 is novel in that a relevant phospho protein motif is directly delivered inside the cell and

modulates downstream events that regulate scar formation. Our results indicate that AZX 100

increases monomeric G actin by depolymerizing actin which disrupts cytoskeleton. Since

disruption of cytoskeleton decreases CTGF expression and prevent excessive scarring, AZX100

may be used as a therapeutic agent for excessive scarring and fibrotic disorders."

a few studies:
