 Valemetostat, also known as DS-3201 is a potent, selective and orally active EZH1/2 inhibitor. DS-3201 selectively inhibits the activity of both wild-type and mutated forms of EZH1 and EZH2. Inhibition of EZH1/2 specifically prevents the methylation of lysine 27 on histone H3 (H3K27). This decrease in histone methylation alters gene expression patterns associated with cancer pathways, enhances transcription of certain target genes, and results in decreased proliferation of EZH1/2-expressing cancer cells.

Darinaparsin is a small-molecule organic arsenical with potential antineoplastic activity. Although the exact mechanism of action is unclear, darinaparsin, a highly toxic metabolic intermediate of inorganic arsenicals (iAs) that occurs in vivo, appears to generate volatile cytotoxic arsenic compounds when glutathione (GSH) concentrations are low. The arsenic compounds generated from darinaparsin disrupt mitochondrial bioenergetics, producing reactive oxygen species (ROS) and inducing ROS-mediated tumor cell apoptosis; in addition, this agent or its byproducts may initiate cell death by interrupting the G2/M phase of the cell cycle and may exhibit antiangiogenic effects. Compared to inorganic arsenic compounds such as arsenic trioxide (As2O3), darinaparsin appears to exhibit a wide therapeutic window.

Darinaparsin is an organic arsenical composed of dimethylated arsenic linked to glutathione, and is being investigated for antitumor properties in vitro and in vivo. While other arsenicals, including arsenic trioxide, have been used clinically, none have shown significant activity in malignancies outside of acute promyelocytic leukemia. Darinaparsin has significant activity in a broad spectrum of hematologic and solid tumors in preclinical models. Here, we review the literature describing the signaling pathways and mechanisms of action of darinaparsin and compare them to mechanisms of cell death induced by arsenic trioxide. Darinaparsin has overlapping, but distinct, signaling mechanisms. We also review the current results of clinical trials with darinaparsin (both intravenous and oral formulations) that demonstrate significant antitumor activity.

Preparation of Darinaparsin

[0071] Sterile water (15.5 L) and ethyl alcohol (200 proof, 15.5 L) were charged in a reaction flask prior to the addition of L-glutathione (3.10 kg). While being stirred, the reaction mixture was cooled to 0-5 °C prior to the addition of triethylamine (1.71 L). Stirring was continued until most of the solids were dissolved and the solution was filtered. After filtration, the reaction mixture was cooled to 0-5 °C prior to the addition of chlorodimethylarsine (1.89 kg) over 115 minutes while maintaining the temperature at 0-5 °C. Stirring continued at 0-5 °C for 4 hours before acetone (30.6 L) was added over 54 minutes while maintaining the temperature at 0-5 °C. The suspension was stored at 0-5°C overnight prior to filtration. The solid was collected in a filter funnel, washed successively with ethyl alcohol (200 proof, 13.5 L) and acetone (13.5 L) and dried in suction for 23 minutes. A second similar run was performed and the collected solids from both runs were combined. Ethyl alcohol (200 proof, 124 L) and the combined solids (11.08 kg) were charged in a vessel. The slurry was stirred at ambient temperature for 2 hours before filtration, washing successively with ethyl alcohol (200 proof, 27 L) and acetone (27 L) and dried in suction for 60 minutes. The resulting solid was transferred to drying trays and dried in a vacuum oven at ambient temperature for 66 hours to provide darinaparsin as a solid with the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) thermogram of Figure 1, with an extrapolated onset temperature at about 191.36° C and a peak temperature at about 195.65° C.

Solasia Announces Submission of New Drug Application for Anti-cancer Drug DARINAPARSIN for Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma in Japan

Solasia Pharma K.K. (TSE: 4597, Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan, President & CEO: Yoshihiro Arai, hereinafter “Solasia”) today announced submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) for its new anti-cancer drug darinaparsin (generic name, development code: SP-02) as a treatment for relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW). Based on positive results of R&D on darinaparsin, centered primarily on the results of the Asian Multinational Phase 2 Study (study results released in June 2020), Solasia filed an NDA for the drug with the regulatory authority in Japan ahead of anywhere else in the world.

Solasia expects to obtain regulatory approval in 2022 and to also launch in the same year. If approved and launched, darinaparsin would be the third drug Solasia successfully developed and brought to market since its founding and is expected to contribute to the treatment of PTCL.

Mr. Yoshihiro Arai, President and CEO of Solasia, commented as follows:
“No standard treatment has been established for relapsed or refractory PTCL as of yet. I firmly believe that darinaparsin, with its novel mechanism of action that differs from those of already approved drugs, will contribute to patients and healthcare providers at clinical sites as a new treatment option for relapsed or refractory PTCL. Since founding, Solasia has conducted R&D on five pipeline drugs. Of the five, we have successfully developed and brought to market two drugs, i.e., began providing them to patients, and today, we submitted an NDA for our first anti-cancer drug. Under our mission to provide patients with ‘Better Medicine for a Brighter Tomorrow’, we will continue aiming to contribute to patients’ treatment and enhanced quality of life. ”

About darinaparsin (SP-02)
Darinaparsin, an organoarsenic compound with anticancer activity, is a novel mitochondrial-targeted agent being developed for the treatment of various hematologic and solid tumors. The proposed mechanism of action of the drug involves the disruption of mitochondrial function, increased production of reactive oxygen species, and modulation of intracellular signal transduction pathways. Darinaparsin is believed to exert anticancer effect by inducing cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Darinaparsin has been granted orphan drug designation in the US and EU.

Olipudase Alfa Improves Lung Function, Spleen Volume in ASMD

Olipudase Alfa Improves Lung Function, Spleen Volume in ASMD

https://www.empr.com/home/mpr-first-report/worldsymposium-2021/olipudase-alfa-chronic-visceral-acid-sphingomyelinase-efficacy/embed/#?secret=x9Jl0tjBl4#?secret=4RmoWVLWaQ

Olipudase alfa was associated with significant improvements in clinically relevant disease end points among patients with chronic visceral acid sphingomyelinase (ASM) deficiency (ASMD), according to results from the phase 2/3 ASCEND trial presented at the 17th Annual WORLDSymposium.

ASMD is a rare, debilitating lysosomal storage disease characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme acid sphingomyelinase, which results in the accumulation of sphingomyelin in various tissues of the body. Olipudase alfa is an investigational enzyme replacement therapy designed to replace deficient or defective ASM.

The multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled ASCEND trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of olipudase alfa in 36 adults with chronic visceral ASMD. Patients were randomly assigned 1:1 to receive olipudase alfa 3mg/kg intravenously every 2 weeks or placebo for 52 weeks. The coprimary end points were the percent change in spleen volume and percent-predicted diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO).

At week 52, treatment with olipudase alfa resulted in a 39.45% reduction in spleen volume, compared with a 0.5% increase for placebo (P <.0001). A decrease in spleen volume of at least 30% was observed in 17 patients (94%) treated with olipudase afla compared with no patients treated with placebo. Additionally, olipudase alfa significantly improved lung function by 22% from baseline compared with 3% for patients receiving placebo (P =.0004), as measured by percent predicted DLCO.

Olipudase alfa also met key secondary end points including a 31.7% reduction in liver volume (vs a 1.4% reduction for placebo; P <.0001) and a 16.8% improvement in mean platelet counts (vs 2.5% with placebo; P =.019) at week 52. Significant improvements in HDL, LDL, AST, ALT, chitotriosidase (54% vs 12% with placebo; P =.0003), and lyso-sphingomyelin (78% vs 6% with placebo) were also observed in the olipudase alfa group at week 52.

With regard to Splenomegaly Related Score, a patient-reported outcome measurement that evaluates patient symptoms associated with an enlarged spleen, findings showed no meaningful difference between olipudase alfa and placebo (-8 point vs -9.3 points, respectively).

As for safety, olipudase alfa was well tolerated with most adverse events being mild to moderate in severity. There were no treatment-related serious adverse events and no adverse event-related discontinuations.

EMA accepts regulatory submission for olipudase alfa, the first potential therapy for ASMD

  • Olipudase alfa has been granted PRIority MEdicines (PRIME) designation in Europe, Breakthrough Therapy designation in the United States, and SAKIGAKE designation in Japan
  • European regulatory decision anticipated second half of 2022

DECEMBER 6, 2021

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has accepted for review under an accelerated assessment procedure the Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for olipudase alfa, Sanofi’s investigational enzyme replacement therapy which is being evaluated for the treatment of acid sphingomyelinase deficiency (ASMD). Historically referred to as Niemann-Pick disease (NPD) type A and type B, ASMD is a rare, progressive, and potentially life-threatening disease for which no treatments are currently approved. The estimated prevalence of ASMD is approximately 2,000 patients in the U.S., Europe (EU5 Countries) and Japan. If approved, olipudase alfa will become the first and only therapy for the treatment of ASMD.

Today’s milestone has been decades in the making and our gratitude goes to the ASMD community who has stood by us with endless patience while olipudase alfa advanced through clinical development,” said Alaa Hamed, MD, MPH, MBA, Global Head of Medical Affairs, Rare Diseases, Sanofi. “Olipudase alfa represents the kind of potentially life-changing innovation that is possible when industry, medical professionals and the patient community work together toward a common goal.”

The MAA is based on positive results from two separate clinical trials (ASCEND and ASCEND-Peds) evaluating olipudase alfa in adult and pediatric patients with non-central nervous system (CNS) manifestations of ASMD type A/B and ASMD type B.

Olipudase alfa has received special designations from regulatory agencies worldwide, recognizing the innovation potential of the investigational therapy.

“Scientific innovation is the greatest source of hope for people living with diseases like ASMD where there are no approved treatments and is a critical component for ensuring a viable healthcare ecosystem,” said Bill Sibold, Executive Vice President of Sanofi GenzymeAt Sanofi, we have a long history of pioneering scientific innovation, and we remain committed to finding solutions to address unmet medical needs, including those of the rare disease community.”

The EMA awarded olipudase alfa the PRIority MEdicines designation, also known as PRIME, intended to aid and expedite the regulatory process for investigational medicines that may offer a major therapeutic advantage over existing treatments, or benefit patients without treatment options.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Breakthrough Therapy designation to olipudase alfa. This designation is intended to expedite the development and review of drugs intended to treat serious or life-threatening diseases and conditions. The criteria for granting Breakthrough Therapy designation include preliminary clinical evidence indicating that the molecule may demonstrate substantial improvement on a clinically significant endpoint over available therapies.

In Japan, olipudase alfa was awarded the SAKIGAKE designation, which is intended to promote research and development in Japan for innovative new medical products that satisfy certain criteria, such as the severity of the intended indication. In September, Sanofi filed the J-NDA submission for olipudase alfa.

About ASMD

ASMD results from a deficient activity of the enzyme acid sphingomyelinase (ASM), which is found in special compartments within cells called lysosomes and is required to breakdown lipids called sphingomyelin. If ASM is absent or not functioning as it should, sphingomyelin cannot be metabolized properly and accumulates within cells, eventually causing cell death and the malfunction of major organ systems. The deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme ASM is due to disease-causing variants in the sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase 1 gene (SMPD1). The estimated prevalence of ASMD is approximately 2,000 patients in the U.S., Europe (EU5 Countries) and Japan.

ASMD represents a spectrum of disease caused by the same enzymatic deficiency, with two types that may represent opposite ends of a continuum sometimes referred to as ASMD type A and ASMD type B. ASMD type A is a rapidly progressive neurological form of the disease resulting in death in early childhood due to central nervous system complications. ASMD type B is a serious and potentially life-threatening disease that predominantly impacts the lungs, liver, and spleen, as well as other organs. ASMD type A/B represents an intermediate form that includes varying degrees of neurologic involvement. Patients with ASMD type A/B or ASMD type B were studied in the ASCEND trial program. Another type of NPD is NPD type C, which is unrelated to ASMD.

About olipudase alfa

Olipudase alfa is an investigational enzyme replacement therapy designed to replace deficient or defective ASM, allowing for the breakdown of sphingomyelin. Olipudase alfa is currently being investigated to treat non-CNS manifestations of ASMD. Olipudase alfa has not been studied in ASMD type A patients. Olipudase alfa is an investigational agent and the safety and efficacy have not been evaluated by the FDA, EMA, or any other regulatory authority worldwide.

FDA Approves New Treatment for Myasthenia Gravis

Approval is the First of a New Class of Medication for this Rare, Chronic, Autoimmune, Neuromuscular DiseaseFor Immediate Release:December 17, 2021

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Vyvgart (efgartigimod) for the treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) in adults who test positive for the anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody.

Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune, neuromuscular disease that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles (also called voluntary muscles) that worsens after periods of activity and improves after periods of rest. Myasthenia gravis affects voluntary muscles, especially those that are responsible for controlling the eyes, face, mouth, throat, and limbs. In myasthenia gravis, the immune system produces AChR antibodies that interfere with communication between nerves and muscles, resulting in weakness. Severe attacks of weakness can cause breathing and swallowing problems that can be life-threatening.

“There are significant unmet medical needs for people living with myasthenia gravis, as with many other rare diseases,” said Billy Dunn, M.D., director of the Office of Neuroscience in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “Today’s approval is an important step in providing a novel therapy option for patients and underscores the agency’s commitment to help make new treatment options available for people living with rare diseases.”

Vyvgart is the first approval of a new class of medication. It is an antibody fragment that binds to the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn), preventing FcRn from recycling immunoglobulin G (IgG) back into the blood. The medication causes a reduction in overall levels of IgG, including the abnormal AChR antibodies that are present in myasthenia gravis.

The safety and efficacy of Vyvgart were evaluated in a 26-week clinical study of 167 patients with myasthenia gravis who were randomized to receive either Vyvgart or placebo. The study showed that more patients with myasthenia gravis with antibodies responded to treatment during the first cycle of Vyvgart (68%) compared to those who received placebo (30%) on a measure that assesses the impact of myasthenia gravis on daily function. More patients receiving Vyvgart also demonstrated response on a measure of muscle weakness compared to placebo.

The most common side effects associated with the use of Vyvgart include respiratory tract infections, headache, and urinary tract infections. As Vyvgart causes a reduction in IgG levels, the risk of infections may increase. Hypersensitivity reactions such as eyelid swelling, shortness of breath, and rash have occurred. If a hypersensitivity reaction occurs, discontinue the infusion and institute appropriate therapy. Patients using Vyvgart should monitor for signs and symptoms of infections during treatment. Health care professionals should administer appropriate treatment and consider delaying administration of Vyvgart to patients with an active infection until the infection is resolved.

The FDA granted this application Fast Track and Orphan Drug designations. The FDA granted the approval of Vyvgart to argenx BV.

PEPTIDE

Treatment of Achondroplasia
modified recombinant human C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP)

Vosoritide, sold under the brand name Voxzogo, is a medication used for the treatment of achondroplasia.[1]

The most common side effects include injection site reactions (such as swelling, redness, itching or pain), vomiting and decreased blood pressure.[1]

Vosoritide was approved for medical use in the European Union in August 2021.[1][2]

Voxzogo is a medicine for treating achondroplasia in patients aged 2 years and older whose bones are still growing.

Achondroplasia is an inherited disease caused by a mutation (change) in a gene called fibroblast growth-factor receptor 3 (FGFR3). The mutation affects growth of almost all bones in the body including the skull, spine, arms and legs resulting in very short stature with a characteristic appearance.

Achondroplasia is rare, and Voxzogo was designated an ‘orphan medicine’ (a medicine used in rare diseases) on 24 January 2013. Further information on the orphan designation can be found here: ema.europa.eu/medicines/human/orphan-designations/EU3121094.

Voxzogo contains the active substance vosoritide.

Medical uses

Vosoritide is indicated for the treatment of achondroplasia in people two years of age and older whose epiphyses are not closed.[1]

Mechanism of action

AChondrocyte with constitutionally active FGFR3 that down-regulates its development via the MAPK/ERK pathway
B: Vosoritide (BMN 111) blocks this mechanism by binding to the atrial natriuretic peptide receptor B (NPR-B), which subsequently inhibits the MAPK/ERK pathway at the RAF-1 protein.[3]

Vosoritide works by binding to a receptor (target) called natriuretic peptide receptor type B (NPR-B), which reduces the activity of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3).[1] FGFR3 is a receptor that normally down-regulates cartilage and bone growth when activated by one of the proteins known as acidic and basic fibroblast growth factor. It does so by inhibiting the development (cell proliferation and differentiation) of chondrocytes, the cells that produce and maintain the cartilaginous matrix which is also necessary for bone growth. Children with achondroplasia have one of several possible FGFR3 mutations resulting in constitutive (permanent) activity of this receptor, resulting in overall reduced chondrocyte activity and thus bone growth.[3]

The protein C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP), naturally found in humans, reduces the effects of over-active FGFR3. Vosoritide is a CNP analogue with the same effect but prolonged half-life,[3] allowing for once-daily administration.[4]

Chemistry

 

Vosoritide is an analogue of CNP. It is a peptide consisting of the amino acids proline and glycine plus the 37 C-terminal amino acids from natural human CNP. The complete peptide sequence isPGQEHPNARKYKGANKKGLS KGCFGLKLDIGSMSGLGC

with a disulfide bridge between positions 23 and 39 (underlined).[5] The drug must be administered by injection as it would be rendered ineffective by the digestive system if taken by mouth.

History

Vosoritide is being developed by BioMarin Pharmaceutical and, being the only available causal treatment for this condition, has orphan drug status in the US as well as the European Union.[1][2][6] As of September 2015, it is in Phase II clinical trials.[7][4]

Society and culture

Controversy

Some people with achondroplasia, as well as parents of children with this condition, have reacted to vosoritide’s study results by saying that dwarfism is not a disease and consequently does not need treatment.[8]

Research

Vosoritide has resulted in increased growth in a clinical trial with 26 children. The ten children receiving the highest dose grew 6.1 centimetres (2.4 in) in six months, compared to 4.0 centimetres (1.6 in) in the six months before the treatment (p=0.01).[9] The body proportions, more specifically the ratio of leg length to upper body length – which is lower in achondroplasia patients than in the average population – was not improved by vosoritide, but not worsened either.[7][10]

As of September 2015, it is not known whether the effect of the drug will last long enough to result in normal body heights,[10] or whether it will reduce the occurrence of achondroplasia associated problems such as ear infections, sleep apnea or hydrocephalus. This, together with the safety of higher doses, is to be determined in further studies.[4]

GUANGZHOU, China–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MaxiNovel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has granted MaxiNovel Orphan Drug Designation for MAX-40279 in the treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

AML is the most common acute leukemia which accounts for approximately 25% of all adult leukemias worldwide. Approximately one-third of AML patients have a FLT3 gene mutation. Such mutation can result in faster disease progression, higher relapse rates and lower rates of survival than other forms of AML. Inhibition of FLT3 mutation is of high importance in combating AML.

In the preclinical testing, MAX-40279 demonstrated potent inhibition of both FLT3 and FGFR with excellent drug concentration in the bone marrow. It is designed to overcome the observed drug resistance of the current FLT3 inhibitors due to the bone marrow FGF/FGFR pathway activation.

“We are very pleased to receive the ODD,” commented MaxiNovel’s Vice President Dr. Elizabeth Ashraf. “Our objective is to bring the best in class medicine to the patients worldwide.”

The FDA Office of Orphan Products Development grants orphan drug designation to novel drugs and biologics that are intended for the safe and effective treatment, diagnosis or prevention of rare diseases or disorders that affect fewer than 200,000 people in the United States. The designation allows manufacturers to qualify for various incentives including federal grants, tax credits for qualified clinical trials, a waiver of PDUFA filing fees and 7 years of market exclusivity upon regulatory approval.

The JAK-STAT (Janus kinase-signal transducer and activator of transcription) signal pathway is a signal transduction pathway stimulated by cytokines discovered in recent years, and it participates in many important biology such as cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and immune regulation. Process (Aaronson, D Set al. Science 2002, 296, 1653-1655; O’Shea, J Jet al. Nat. Rev. Drug Discovery 2004, 3, 555-564). Compared with other signal pathways, the transmission process of this signal pathway is relatively simple. It mainly consists of three components, namely tyrosine kinase-related receptor, tyrosine kinase JAK and transcription factor STAT. JAK (Janus Kinase), a type of molecule in the cell, is rapidly recruited and activated on the receptor after receiving the signal from the upstream receptor molecule. The activated JAK catalyzes the receptor tyrosine phosphorylation, and the phosphorylation of tyrosine on the receptor molecule Amino acid is the recognition and binding site of a kind of signal molecule STAT SH2. Tyrosine phosphorylation occurs after STAT binds to the receptor. Tyrosine phosphorylated STAT forms a dimer and enters the nucleus. As an active transcription factor, dimeric STAT molecules directly affect the expression of related genes, thereby changing the proliferation or differentiation status of target cells.

The JAK-STAT pathway is widely present in various tissues and cells in the body, and has an important role in the differentiation, proliferation, and anti-infection of lymphocytes, and participates in the interaction of various inflammatory factors and signal transduction (Kiesseleva T. et al. . J. Gene, 2002, 285, 1-24). The abnormal activation of this pathway is closely related to a variety of diseases. Finding and screening JAK inhibitors can help in-depth study of the regulatory mechanism of JAK-STAT, thereby providing new drugs and methods for the prevention and treatment of related diseases

The occurrence, growth, invasion and metastasis of tumors are related to the JAK-STAT signal transduction pathway. In normal signal transduction, the activation of STATs is rapid and transient. The continuous activation of STATs is closely related to the process of malignant transformation of cells (Buettner R. et al. Clin. Cancer Res. 2002, 8(4), 945-954). STAT3 is the focus of multiple oncogenic tyrosine kinase signal channels such as EGFR, IL-6/JAK, Src, etc. It is activated in a variety of tumor cells and tissues, such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and head and neck squamous cells. Like cell carcinoma, prostate cancer, malignant melanoma, multiple myeloma, lymphoma, brain tumor, non-small cell lung cancer and various leukemias, etc. (Niu G. et al. Oncogene 2002, 21(13), 2000-2008 ). JAK-STAT pathway inhibitors belong to PTK inhibitors, and this enzyme is a member of the oncogene protein and proto-oncoprotein family, and plays an important role in the normal and abnormal cell proliferation. The occurrence and growth of tumors are inseparable from PTK. Therefore, JAK-STAT pathway inhibitors inhibit tumor growth by antagonizing PTK, and have obvious anti-tumor effects (Mora LBet al.J.Cancer Res.2002,62(22) , 6659-6666).

In addition, the latest research shows that: organ transplant rejection, psoriasis, tissue and organ fibrosis, bronchial asthma, ischemic cardiomyopathy, heart failure, myocardial infarction, blood system diseases, and immune system diseases are all related to JAK-STAT signaling. The pathway is closely related. This signaling pathway is not only important for maintaining the normal physiological functions of cells, but also has an important regulatory role for the occurrence and development of diseases.

The Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor family belongs to a new type of receptor kinase family, which includes four receptor subtypes (FGFR-1,2,3) encoded by four closely related genes. And 4) and some heterogeneous molecules, which form a ternary complex with fibroblast growth factor (FGF) and heparan sulfate, and then trigger a series of signal transduction pathways to participate in the regulation of physiological processes in the organism. FGFR has a wide range of physiological and pathological effects in the body: (1) Embryo development. Studies have shown that during embryonic development, FGFR signal transduction is essential for most organ development and the formation of embryonic patterns. (2) Cell division, migration and differentiation. FGFR stimulates cell proliferation and participates in the regulation of cell transformation in the pathological process. There are many parallel pathways to achieve FGFR-mediated cell division signal transduction, which has been confirmed by many studies (JKWang et al., Oncogene 1997, 14, 1767 -1778.). (3) Bone diseases. The growth and differentiation of bones are also regulated by the FGF family, and mutations in FGFR can cause bone deformities (R. Shang et al., Cell 1994, 78, 335-342.). (4) The occurrence of tumors. FGFR can promote the migration, proliferation and differentiation of endothelial cells, and plays an important role in the regulation of angiogenesis and angiogenesis. Uncontrolled angiogenesis can lead to the occurrence of tumors and the growth of metastases (J.Folkman.Nat.Med.1995) ,1,27-31.).

FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3, FLT3) belongs to the type III receptor tyrosine kinase (receptor tyrosine kinase III, RTK III) family member, it is composed of extracellular domain, intracellular domain and The transmembrane region is composed of 3 parts, which are first expressed in human hematopoietic stem cells. FLT3 interacts with its ligand FL to stimulate or act on stem cells, which is of great significance to the growth and differentiation of stem cells. FLT3 kinase has wild-type FLT3-WT and its main activation mutant FLT3-ITD and FLT3-D835Y. FLT3 is mainly expressed in the precursors of normal myeloid cells, but its abnormal expression is also found in a large part of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells. 

In recent years, many large-scale studies have confirmed that activating mutations of FLT3 play a very important pathological role in the occurrence and progression of acute myeloid leukemia. FLT3 has become an important target for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia.

rc family kinase (SFK) is a family of non-receptor tyrosine kinases, including c-Src, LYN, FYN, LCK, HCK, FGR, BLK, YES and YRK, among which LYN kinase has LYNα and LYNβ Both subtypes, LYN kinase and its two subtypes can cause similar intracellular tyrosine phosphorylation. According to the amino acid sequence, SFK can be divided into two sub-families: one family is c-Src, FYN, YES and FGR, which are widely expressed in different tissues; the other family is LCK, BLK, LYN and HCK, which are closely related to hematopoietic cells. SFK is connected to multiple signal transduction pathways in the body, and can be activated by growth factors, cytokines and immune cell receptors, G protein-coupled receptors, integrins and other cell adhesion molecules, and then activate the corresponding signal transduction pathways , Causing a variety of physiological effects of cells. The activity of SFK mainly includes the regulation of cell morphology, cell movement, cell proliferation and survival. The abnormal activation and expression of these kinases leads to the occurrence and development of a wide range of diseases, such as a large number of solid tumors, various hematological malignancies and some neuronal pathologies. Therefore, looking for SFK inhibitors is a promising research topic in the field of medicinal chemistry.

Nanatinostat is under investigation in clinical trial NCT00697879 (Safety Study of the Histone Deacetylase Inhibitor, CHR-3996, in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumours).

Nanatinostat is an orally bioavailable, second-generation hydroxamic acid-based inhibitor of histone deacetylase (HDAC), with potential antineoplastic activity. Nanatinostat targets and inhibits HDAC, resulting in an accumulation of highly acetylated histones, the induction of chromatin remodeling, and the selective transcription of tumor suppressor genes; these events result in the inhibition of tumor cell division and the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. This agent may upregulate HSP70 and downregulate anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 proteins more substantially than some first-generation HDAC inhibitors. HDACs, upregulated in many tumor cell types, are a family of metalloenzymes responsible for the deacetylation of chromatin histone proteins.

Abstract

We previously reported medicinal chemistry efforts that identified MK-5204, an orally efficacious β-1,3-glucan synthesis inhibitor derived from the natural product enfumafungin. Further extensive optimization of the C2 triazole substituent identified 4-pyridyl as the preferred replacement for the carboxamide of MK-5204, leading to improvements in antifungal activity in the presence of serum, and increased oral exposure. Reoptimizing the aminoether at C3 in the presence of this newly discovered C2 substituent, confirmed that the (Rt-butyl, methyl aminoether of MK-5204 provided the best balance of these two key parameters, culminating in the discovery of ibrexafungerp, which is currently in phase III clinical trials. Ibrexafungerp displayed significantly improved oral efficacy in murine infection models, making it a superior candidate for clinical development as an oral treatment for Candida and Aspergillus infections.

Ibrexafungerp, also known as SCY-078 or MK-3118, is a novel enfumafungin derivative oral triterpene antifungal approved for the treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), also known as a vaginal yeast infection.1,9 It was developed out of a need to treat fungal infections that may have become resistant to echinocandins or azole antifungals.1 Ibrexafungerp is orally bioavailable compared to the echinocandins caspofunginmicafungin, and anidulafungin; which can only be administered parenterally.1,2 Similar to echinocandins, ibrexafungerp targets the fungal β-1,3-glucan synthase, which is not present in humans, limiting the chance of renal or hepatic toxicity.6,9

Ibrexafungerp was granted FDA approval on 1 June 2021.9

β-1,3-glucan synthase is composed of a catalytic subunit, FKS1 or FKS2, and a GTP-binding regulatory subunit, Rho1.5,6 This synthase is involved in the synthesis of β-1,3-glucan, a fungal cell wall component.6

Ibrexafungerp acts similarly to the echinocandin antifungals, by inhibiting the synthesis of β-1,3-glucan synthase.1,9 While echinocandins bind to the FKS1 domain of β-1,3-glucan synthase, enfumafungin and its derivatives bind at an alternate site which allows them to maintain their activity against fungal infections that are resistant to echinocandins.3,4

Ibrexafungerp has been shown in animal studies to distribute well to vaginal tissue, making it a favourable treatment for vulvovaginal candidiasis.4
