Discovery and Evaluation of Clinical Candidate IDH305, a Brain Penetrant Mutant IDH1 Inhibitor.
ACS Med Chem Lett. 2017 Sep 18;8(10):1116-1121. doi:, 10.1021/acsmedchemlett.7b00342. eCollection 2017 Oct 12.
Inhibition of mutant IDH1 is being evaluated clinically as a promising treatment option for various cancers with hotspot mutation at Arg132. Having identified an allosteric, induced pocket of IDH1R132H, we have explored 3-pyrimidin-4-yl-oxazolidin-2-ones as mutant IDH1 inhibitors for in vivo modulation of 2-HG production and potential brain penetration. We report here optimization efforts toward the identification of clinical candidate IDH305 (13), a potent and selective mutant IDH1 inhibitor that has demonstrated brain exposure in rodents. Preclinical characterization of this compound exhibited in vivo correlation of 2-HG reduction and efficacy in a patient-derived IDH1 mutant xenograft tumor model. IDH305 (13) has progressed into human clinical trials for the treatment of cancers with IDH1 mutation.
