Multi-drug resistance 1 (MDR1, ABCB1), also known as P-glycoprotein (P-gp), restricts intestinal uptake of many drugs, and contributes to cellular resistance to cancer chemotherapy. In this study, we examined the pharmacologic characteristics of HM30181, a newly developed MDR1 inhibitor, and tested its capacity to increase the oral bioavailability and(More)
Virtual screening was performed to determine potent vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR)-2 kinase inhibitors. A database of approximately 820,000 commercial compounds was used for screening, and 100 compounds were chosen as candidate VEGFR-2 inhibitors through pharmacophore modeling and docking studies. These 100 compounds were purchased to(More)
Src is an important target in multiple processes associated with tumor growth and development, including proliferation, neovascularization, and metastasis. In this study, hit identification was performed by virtual screening of commercial and in-house compound libraries. Docking studies for the hits were performed, and scoring functions were used to(More)
Alzheimer's disease is an irreversible neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by the abnormal aggregation of amyloid-β into neurotoxic oligomers and plaques. Although many disease-modifying molecules are currently in Alzheimer clinical trials, a small molecule that inhibits amyloid-β aggregation and ameliorates the disorder has not been approved(More)
BACKGROUND Paclitaxel has been shown to inhibit vascular smooth muscle cell migration and proliferation contributing to neointimal formation. This study tested whether novel oral formulations of paclitaxel can prevent neointimal formation in a rat carotid artery injury model. METHODS AND RESULTS Oral formulations of paclitaxel (0, 5, 7.5, or 10 mg/kg)(More)
HM-30181, 4-oxo-4H-chromene-2-carboxylic acid, [2-(2-{4-[2-(6,7-dimethoxy-3,4-dihydro-1H-isoquinolin-2-yl)-ethyl]-phenyl}-2H-tetrazol-5-yl)-4,5-dimethoxyphenyl]amide, is a new P-glycoprotein inhibitor. This study was performed to identify the in vitro and in vivo metabolic pathway of HM-30181 in rats. Rat liver microsomal incubation of HM-30181 in the(More)
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family of receptor tyrosine kinases has been implicated in a variety of cancers. In particular, activating mutations such as the L858R point mutation in exon 21 and the small in-frame deletions in exon 19 of the EGFR tyrosine kinase domain are correlated with sensitivity to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in(More)
Oral chemotherapy has many advantages over parenteral chemotherapeutics administration. To use the advantages of the oral chemotherapy and maximize anti-tumor effects of the chemotherapeutic agent, we designed HM30181A (a P-glycoprotein inhibitor) and a paclitaxel oral co-administration chemotherapeutic method. HM30181A is used to aid paclitaxel absorption(More)
A novel series of (S)-1-acryloyl-N-[4-(arylamino)-7-(alkoxy)quinazolin-6-yl]pyrrolidine-2-carboxamides were synthesized and evaluated as Her-1/Her-2 dual inhibitors. In contrast to the Her-1 selective inhibitors, our novel compounds are irreversible inhibitors of Her-1 and Her-2 tyrosine kinases with the potential to overcome clinically relevant,(More)
Alzheimer's disease drug discovery regarding exploration into the molecules and processes has focused on the intrinsic causes of the brain disorder correlated with the accumulation of amyloid-β. An anti-amyloidogenic bis-styrylbenzene derivative, KMS80013, showed excellent oral bioavailability (F=46.2%), facilitated brain penetration (26%, iv) in mouse and(More)
