phase2………Treatment of Solid Tumors Therapy

ZSTK474 is a cell permeable and reversible P13K inhibitor with an IC₅₀ at 6nm. It was identified as part of a screening library, selected for its ability to block tumor cell growth. ZSTK474 has shown strong antitumor activities against human cancer xenographs when administered orally to mice without a significant toxic effect.

Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) has been implicated in a variety of diseases including cancer. A number of PI3K inhibitors have recently been developed for use in cancer therapy. ZSTK474 is a highly promising antitumor agent targeting PI3K. We previously reported that ZSTK474 showed potent inhibition against four class I PI3K isoforms but not against 140 protein kinases.

However, whether ZSTK474 inhibits DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK), which is structurally similar to PI3K, remains unknown. To investigate the inhibition of DNA-PK, we developed a…

Motesanib (AMG-706)

Amgen Inc.


Motesanib (AMG 706) is an experimental drug candidate originally developed by Amgen[1] but is now being investigated by theTakeda Pharmaceutical Company. It is an orally administered small molecule belonging to angiokinase inhibitor class which acts as an antagonist of VEGF receptors, platelet-derived growth factor receptors, and stem cell factor receptors.[2] It is used as thephosphatesalt motesanib diphosphate.

Motesanib, also known as AMG-706, is an orally administered multikinase inhibitor that selectively targets VEGF receptors, platelet-derived growth factor receptors, and Kit receptors.

Clinical trials

Motesanib was originally investigated for effectiveness against advanced nonsquamous non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), withPhase II trials indicating an effectiveness comparable to bevacizumab when they were both used in combination withpaclitaxel/carboplatin.[3] However a later and more detailed Phase III trial failed to show any benefit for the treatment of NSCLC.

Strain-Driven Direct Cross-Aldol and -Ketol Reactions of Four-Membered Heterocyclic Ketones


Strain-Driven Direct Cross-Aldol and -Ketol Reactions of Four-Membered Heterocyclic Ketones

Institute of Organic Chemistry, Research Centre for Natural Sciences, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 1519 Budapest, Hungary
Org. Lett., Article ASAP
DOI: 10.1021/acs.orglett.5b01002

Owing to the ring strain and α-heteroatom effect, the four-membered heterocyclic ketones can undergo direct cross-aldol and -ketol reactions without the need for preformed enol or “enolate-like” intermediates. Besides the organocatalyzed cross-ketol addition onto their highly active carbonyl group, their ability to act as a nucleophilic donor has also been explored. As a result, a number of discrete aldol adducts were synthesized and the distinct reactivities were successfully combined into a double-aldol one-pot reaction.
