Ripretinib, sold under the brand name Qinlock, is a medication for the treatment of adults with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), a type of tumor that originates in the gastrointestinal tract.[3] It is taken by mouth.[3] Ripretinib is a kinase inhibitor, meaning it works by blocking a type of enzyme called a kinase, which helps keep the cancer cells from growing.[3]

The most common side effects include alopecia (hair loss), fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, constipation, myalgia (muscle pain), diarrhea, decreased appetite, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome (a skin reaction in the palms and soles) and vomiting.[3][4] Alopecia is a unique side effect to ripretinib, which is not seen with other tyrosine kinase inhibitors used to treat GISTs.

Ripretinib was approved for medical use in the United States in May 2020,[3] and in Australia in July 2020.[1] Ripretinib is the first new drug specifically approved in the United States as a fourth-line treatment for advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).

Medical uses

Ripretinib is indicated for the treatment of adults with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), a type of tumor that originates in the gastrointestinal tract, who have received prior treatment with three or more kinase inhibitor therapies, including imatinib.[3] GIST is type of stomach, bowel, or esophagus tumor.[4]

Adverse effects

The most common side effects include alopecia (hair loss), fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, constipation, myalgia (muscle pain), diarrhea, decreased appetite, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome (a skin reaction in the palms and soles) and vomiting.[3][4]

Ripretinib can also cause serious side effects including skin cancer, hypertension (high blood pressure) and cardiac dysfunction manifested as ejection fraction decrease (when the muscle of the left ventricle of the heart is not pumping as well as normal).[3][4]

Ripretinib may cause harm to a developing fetus or a newborn baby.[3][4]


Ripretinib was approved for medical use in the United States in May 2020.[3][5][6][4]

The approval of ripretinib was based on the results of an international, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial (INVICTUS/NCT03353753) that enrolled 129 participants with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) who had received prior treatment with imatinibsunitinib, and regorafenib.[3][7] The trial compared participants who were randomized to receive ripretinib to participants who were randomized to receive placebo, to determine whether progression free survival (PFS) – the time from initial treatment in the clinical trial to growth of the cancer or death – was longer in the ripretinib group compared to the placebo group.[3] During treatment in the trial, participants received ripretinib 150 mg or placebo once a day in 28-day cycles, repeated until tumor growth was found (disease progression), or the participant experienced intolerable side effects.[3][7] After disease progression, participants who were randomized to placebo were given the option of switching to ripretinib.[3][7] The trial was conducted at 29 sites in the United States, Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Spain, and the United Kingdom.[4]

The major efficacy outcome measure was progression-free survival (PFS) based on assessment by blinded independent central review (BICR) using modified RECIST 1.1 in which lymph nodes and bone lesions were not target lesions and a progressively growing new tumor nodule within a pre-existing tumor mass must meet specific criteria to be considered unequivocal evidence of progression.[7] Additional efficacy outcome measures included overall response rate (ORR) by BICR and overall survival (OS).[7] The trial demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in PFS for participants in the ripretinib arm compared with those in the placebo arm (HR 0.15; 95% CI: 0.09, 0.25; p<0.0001).[7]

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the application for ripretinib priority review and fast track designations, as well as breakthrough therapy designation and orphan drug designation.[3][8] The FDA granted approval of Qinlock to Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, Inc.[3]

The FDA collaborated with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and Health Canada on the review of the application as part of Project Orbis.[3][7] The FDA approved ripretinib three months ahead of schedule.[3][7] As of May 2020, the review of the applications was ongoing for the Australian TGA and for Health Canada.[3][7]


Ripretinib is the International nonproprietary name (INN) and the United States Adopted Name (USAN).[9][10]

[0125] Example A13: A mixture of Example C5 (2.191 g, 7.94 mmol), Example Bl (1.538 g, 8.33 mmol) and KF on alumina (40 wt%) (9.22 g, 63.5 mmol) in DMA (40 mL) was sonicated for 2 h. The mixture was filtered through a shallow bed of silica gel and rinsed well with EtOAc. The filtrate was washed with satd. NaHC03 (lx), 5% LiCl (2x), then brine (lx), dried (MgS04), and concentrated to dryness to afford 3-(5-amino-2-bromo-4-fluorophenyl)-7-chloro-l -ethyl- l,6-naphthyridin-2(lH)-one (2.793 g, 89% yield) as a brown solid. 1H NMR (400 MHz, DMSO-<¾): δ 8.77 (s, 1 H), 8.00 (s, 1 H), 7.74 (s, 1 H), 7.37 (d, 1 H), 6.77 (d, 1 H), 5.45 (s, 2 H), 4.27 (q, 2 H), 1.20 (t, 3 H); MS (ESI) m z: 398.0 [M+H]+.

[0126] Example A14: A suspension of Example A13 (1.50 g, 3.78 mmol) in dioxane (15 mL) was treated with methylamine (40% in water) (26.4 mL, 303 mmol) in a pressure tube and heated to 100°C overnight. The mixture was cooled to RT, treated with a large amount of brine, then diluted with EtOAc until all of the solids dissolved. The layers were separated, the aqueous layer extracted with additional EtOAc (lx) and the combined organics were washed with satd. NaHC03 (lx), dried (MgS04) and concentrated to dryness. The resulting solid was suspended in MeCN/H20, frozen and lyophilized to afford 3-(5-amino-2-bromo-4-fluorophenyl)-l-ethyl-7-(methylamino)-l,6-naphthyridin-2(lH)-one (1.32g, 89% yield) as a light brown solid. 1H NMR (400 MHz, DMSO-<¾): δ 8.37 (s, 1 H), 7.62 (s, 1 H), 7.30 (d, 1 H), 6.99 (q, 1 H), 6.73 (d, 1 H), 6.21 (s, 1 H), 5.33 (s, 2 H), 4.11 (q, 2 H), 2.84 (d, 3 H), 1.19 (t, 3 H); MS (ESI) m/z: 393.0 [M+H]+.

[0263] Example 31: A mixture of Example A14 (0.120 g, 0.307 mmol) and TEA (0.043 mL, 0.307 mmol) in THF (3.0 mL) was treated with phenyl isocyanate (0.040 g, 0.337 mmol) and stirred at RT for 4 h. Over the course of the next 4 days the mixture was treated with additional phenyl isocyanate (0.056 mL) and stirred at RT. The resulting solid was filtered, rinsed with THF, then triturated with MeOH to afford l-(4-bromo-5-(l-ethyl-7-(methylamino)-2-oxo- 1 ,2-dihydro- 1 ,6-naphthyridin-3 -yl)-2-fluorophenyl)-3 -phenylurea (101 mg, 64.5% yield) as a bright white solid. 1H NMR (400 MHz, DMSO-<¾): δ 9.09 (s, 1 H), 8.68 (s, 1 H), 8.41 (s, 1 H), 8.17 (d, 1 H), 7.70 (s, 1 H), 7.65 (d, 1 H), 7.41 (d, 2 H), 7.27 (m, 2 H), 7.03 (m, 1 H), 6.96 (t, 1 H), 6.23 (s, 1 H), 4.13 (q, 2 H), 2.86 (d, 3 H), 1.20 (t, 3 H); MS (ESI) m/z: 510.1 [M+H]+.
