Serplulimab (HLX 10) is humanized monoclonal anti-PD-1 antibody

PD-1 (Programmed cell death protein 1; CD279) is an immune checkpoint. PD-1 is a cell surface receptor that belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. Besides, It shows a role in regulating the immune system’s response by down-regulating the immune system. Meanwhile, this compound promotes self-tolerance by suppressing T-cell inflammatory activity....

Tiragolumab is An Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Binding to T-cell Immunoglobulin and TIGIT

Tiragolumab is a potent TIGIT inhibitor. Tiragolumab alone or in combination with the PD-L1 inhibitor Atezolizumab has effects on solid cancers. Additionally, at two recent medical meetings, the agent achieves statistically significant results in multiple solid malignancies. Especially in small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Lung cancer is the most...

Ganetespib (STA-9090) is a HSP90 Inhibitor

Hsp90 is a molecular chaperone that regulates the posttranslational folding, stability, and function of its protein substrates (client proteins), many of which play critical roles in cell growth, differentiation, and survival. The Hsp90 machinery serves as a biochemical buffer for a number of oncogenic signaling proteins causally implicated in...

CC-90011 is a Selective and Orally Active Inhibitor of LSD1

Lysine-specific histone demethylase 1 (LSD1) (also known as KDM1) is a member of a broad family of monoamine oxidases and is encoded by the KDM1A gene. However, LSD1 requires the flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) as a cofactor to catalyze demethylase activity. For example, LSD1 catalyzes demethylation at H3K4me1/2 and...

Trilaciclib is an Orally Active CDK4 and CDK6 Inhibitor

The cell cycle is a highly conserved process. Additionally, this process must maintain genomic integrity and replicative capacity for proper cell maintenance and proliferation. The cell cycle consists of four distinct phases: G1 or Gap1 phase, G2 or Gap2 phase, and M phase. As we all know, the G1...

MCP110 is an Inhibitor of Ras/Raf-1 Interaction

Ras is a small GTPase and interacts with the protein Raf to create activated Ras-Raf complex that activates the downstream effectors in the ERK pathway. Malfunctioning Ras-Raf switches cause cancer. Ras-Raf interaction has taken a center stage in cancer research. Ras is a peripheral membrane protein that acts as...
