AZD4547 is a Potent FGFR Family Inhibitor

Fibroblast growth factors (FGF) and their receptors play important roles in multiple biologic processes, such as tissue repair, hematopoiesis, angiogenesis, and embryonic development. The FGFR family mainly comprises 4 main members (FGFR1–4). FGFRs and FGFRs FGF ligand binding can result in FGFR dimerization. In addition, receptor autophosphorylation and activation...

RRx-001 Triggers Apoptosis and Overcomes Drug Resistance in Myeloma

The hypoxic bone-marrow (BM) microenvironment confers growth/survival and drug-resistance in myeloma. Novel therapies via targeting hypoxic-BM milieu may overcome drug resistance. A study from Deepika Sharma Das reported a hypoxia-selective epigenetic agent, RRx-001. In this study, RRx-001 decreases the viability of MM cell lines, as well as overcomes drug-resistance....

AMG 232 is an Orally Active and Best-in-Class MDM2-p53 Inhibitor

The p53 tumor suppressor induces cell growth arrest and apoptosis in response to DNA damage or stress. And inactivation of the p53 pathway plays an indispensable role in tumor survival. Approximately p53 mutations resulting in loss of its function account for 50% human cancers. And the wild-type p53, present...

CP-10 is a Specific PROTAC Degrader of CDK6

CDK6 plays a significant role in cell cycle entrance. However, overexpression of CDK6 correlates to CDK4/6 inhibitor resistance in breast cancer cell lines and patient samples. Moreover, point mutation of CDK6 could possibly result in attenuation of drug binding affinity or hyperactivation of CDK6. Thus, there is an urgent...

BAY1238097 is a Selective Inhibitor of BET Binding to Histones

Several BET inhibitors with strong anti-tumor efficacy have been described in recent years. Most of them are derived from diazepine and azepine scaffolds, besides, more recently quinazolinones and isoxazoles chemotypes have been identified. Additionally, a study from Pascale Lejeune identified and verified a novel BET inhibitor BAY1238097, which shows...

Olutasidenib is a Mutant IDH1 Inhibitor for the Treatment of AML or MDS

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a kind of cancer diseases, a cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells. AML seriously affects patients’ life as we previously mentioned in our blog. Thus, it is necessary to find out more anti-acute myeloid leukemia agents. As we all konw, IDH (Isocitrate...
