Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors have been used clinically in the treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients harboring sensitizing (or activating) mutations for a number of years. Despite encouraging clinical efficacy with these agents, in many patients resistance develops leading to disease progression. In most cases, this(More)
Wide-ranging exploration of analogues of an ATP-competitive pyrrolopyrimidine inhibitor of Akt led to the discovery of clinical candidate AZD5363, which showed increased potency, reduced hERG affinity, and higher selectivity against the closely related AGC kinase ROCK. This compound demonstrated good preclinical drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK)(More)
High throughput screening to identify inhibitors of the mTOR kinase revealed sulfonyl-morpholino-pyrimidine 1 as an attractive start point. The compound displayed good physicochemical properties and selectivity over related kinases such as PI3Kα. Library preparation of related analogs allowed the establishment of additional SAR understanding and in(More)
The fat component of meals has been thought to make a major contribution to the colonic response to feeding. We have combined gamma scintigraphy and radiotelemetry to noninvasively study the response of the normally inaccessible proximal colon after ingestion of either a high or low fat meal. Separate studies were performed to measure the rate of passage of(More)
A new synthetic route to 3-(heteroaryl) tetrahydropyrazolo[3,4-c]pyridines has been developed that uses the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of a triflate 6 with (hetero)aryl boronic acids or esters. Using Pd(OAc)2 and XPhos or an XPhos precatalyst, a diverse range of substituents at the C3 position of the tetrahydropyrazolo[3,4-c]pyridine skeleton were(More)
Group I p21-activated kinase (PAK) inhibitors are indicated as important in cancer progression, but achieving high kinase selectivity has been challenging. A bis-anilino pyrimidine PAK1 inhibitor was identified and optimized through structure-based drug design to improve PAK1 potency and achieve high kinase selectivity, giving in vitro probe compound(More)
