Brivanib [(R)-1-(4-(4-fluoro-2-methyl-1H-indol-5-yloxy)-5-methylpyrrolo[1,2,4]triazin-6-yloxy)propan-2-ol, BMS-540215] is a potent and selective dual inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) signaling pathways. Its alanine prodrug, brivanib alaninate [(1R,2S)-2-aminopropionic acid(More)
Brivanib alaninate, the L-alanine ester prodrug of brivanib, is currently being developed as an anticancer agent. In humans, brivanib alaninate is rapidly hydrolyzed to brivanib. Prominent biotransformation pathways of brivanib included oxidation and direct sulfate conjugation. A series of in vitro studies were conducted to identify the human esterases(More)
Brivanib alaninate is an orally administered alanine prodrug of brivanib, a dual inhibitor of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) signaling pathways. It is currently in clinical trials for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma and colorectal cancer. Brivanib has a single asymmetric center derived from a(More)
