To support clinical development, a solid phase extraction (SPE) liquid chromatographic-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method for the determination of GDC-0449 concentrations in human plasma has been developed and validated. Samples (200 microl) were extracted using an Oasis MCX 10 mg 96-well SPE plate and the resulting extracts were analyzed using(More)
GDC-0449 (2-chloro-N-(4-chloro-3-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl)-4-(methylsulfonyl)benzamide) is a potent, selective Hedgehog (Hh) signalling pathway inhibitor being developed for the treatment of various cancers. The in vivo clearance of GDC-0449 was estimated to be 23.0, 4.65, 0.338, and 19.3 ml min(-1) kg(-1) in mouse, rat, dog and monkeys, respectively. The(More)
INO-1001 is a PARP-1 inhibitor that interrupts the repair process of N-methylpurines generated by temozolomide. We evaluated the pharmacokinetics of INO-1001 and determined its safety when used with temozolomide at 200 mg/m(2)/day x 5 days every 4 weeks. We enrolled 12 adult patients, in cohorts of 3-6 patients, into the study. INO-1001 at doses of 100, 200(More)
The compound (S)-1-[(S)-2-cyclohexyl-2-([S]-2-[methylamino]propanamido)acetyl]-N-(4-phenyl-1,2,3-thiadiazol-5-yl)pyrrolidine-2-carboxamide (GDC-0152) is a peptidomimetic small molecule antagonist of inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) proteins with antitumor activity. The mass balance, pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution and metabolism of GDC-0152 was(More)
Several modifications of the oxazoline ring of WIN 54954, a broad spectrum antipicornavirus compound, have been prepared in order to address the acid lability and metabolic instability of this compound. We have previously shown that the oxadiazole analogue 3 displayed comparable activity against a variety of rhinoviruses and appeared to be stable to acid. A(More)
New peptaibols, trichokindins I-VII, have been isolated from the fungus Trichoderma harzianum. Their structures were characterized by spectrometric methods. Trichokindins, which are 18-residue peptides containing one to three isovaline residues, were found to induce Ca(2+)-dependent catecholamine secretion from bovine adrenal medullary chromaffin cells.
The development of tandem mass spectrometry (m.s./m.s.) techniques for the rapid structural elucidation and quantification of metabolites is described. With these techniques the mass spectrometer serves as both a separation device as well as a tool for structure elucidation. Ion formation by desorption ionization techniques and mass analysis with an(More)
Using structure-based design, two novel series of highly potent biaryl amine mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK) inhibitors have been discovered. These series contain an H-bond acceptor, in a shifted position compared with previously disclosed compounds, and an adjacent H-bond donor, resulting in a bidentate interaction with the Ser212 residue of(More)
2-Chloro-N-(4-chloro-3-(pyridin-2-yl)-phenyl)-4-(methylsulfonyl)-benzamide (GDC-0449, vismodegib) is a potent and selective first-in-class small-molecule inhibitor of the Hedgehog signaling pathway and is currently in clinical development. In this study, we investigated the metabolic fate and disposition of GDC-0449 in rats and dogs after a single oral(More)
