Nimotuzumab is a Humanized IgG1 Monoclonal Antibody Targeting EGFR

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane protein. The dimerization of EGFR stimulates the activity of intracellular protein tyrosine kinase. Therefore, several tyrosine (y) residues in the C-terminal domain of EGFR undergo autophosphorylation. These include y992, y1045, y1068, y1148, and y1173, as shown in the adjacent chart....

DP-C-4 is a CRBN-Based dual PROTAC for EGFR and PARP

Proteolysis targeting chimera (PROTAC) is a bifunctional small molecule. Interestingly, dual PROPACs are dual-targeted degradation molecules that combine the concepts of PROTAC and dual-targeting. Dual PROPACs degrade two completely different pathway targets while simultaneously taking advantage of both PROTAC and dual-target drugs. Thus, dual PROPACs not only achieve the...

Rociletinib (CO-1686) is an Orally Active EGFR-Mutant Inhibitor

NSCLC accounts for almost 85% of all lung cancers. Additionally, lung cancer continues to be the most common cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Activating mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are key drivers of NSCLC malignancy. Patients with the most common EGFR mutations (L858R mutation in exon...

Olafertinib is a Third-Generation EGFR TKI

Non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is any type of epithelial lung cancer other than small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC). NSCLC patients with activating EGFR mutations initially respond to first-generation EGFR inhibitors. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane glycoprotein with an extracellular epidermal growth factor binding domain and an intracellular...

DBPR112 is an Orally Active EGFR (both WT and Mutant) Inhibitor

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a transmembrane protein, is a receptor of EGF family members of extracellular protein ligands. Specifically, EGFR expresses at elevated levels in different forms of cancer and is usually positively relevant to cancer progression and adverse prognosis. Different mutant forms of this protein also contribute...

Afatinib is an Irreversible and Orally Active EGFR Family Inhibitor

Lung cancer continues to be the leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Members of the ERBB receptor tyrosine kinase family include EGFR, HER2, HER3, and HER4. They present an attractive option for targeted therapy in patients with NSCLC, due to observed patterns of oncogenic mutation of EGFR and HER2. In addition, esophageal...
