Although clinical responses in liquid tumors and certain lymphomas have been reported, the clinical efficacy of histone deacetylase inhibitors in solid tumors has been limited. This may be in part due to the poor pharmacokinetic of these drugs, resulting in inadequate tumor concentrations of the drug. SB939 is a new hydroxamic acid based histone deacetylase(More)
A series of oxamyl dipeptides were optimized for pan caspase inhibition, anti-apoptotic cellular activity and in vivo efficacy. This structure-activity relationship study focused on the P4 oxamides and warhead moieties. Primarily on the basis of in vitro data, inhibitors were selected for study in a murine model of alpha-Fas-induced liver injury. IDN-6556(More)
A liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometric method for the quantification of 6-(3-benzoyl-ureido)-hexanoic acid hydroxyamide (EX-2), a novel histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, in mouse plasma was developed to support in-house pharmacokinetic (PK) studies in the lead optimization stage. In order to determine the PK parameters for EX-2 in comparison(More)
In vitro liver microsomal stability, permeability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and oral bioavailability of SB639, a novel HDACi (Histone Deacetylase inhibitor), were determined. The in vitro metabolism was examined in mouse, rat, dog and human liver microsomes. The permeability and efflux potential of SB639 were determined using Caco-2 cell monolayers. To(More)
A series of 3-(1,2-disubstituted-1H-benzimidazol-5-yl)-N-hydroxyacrylamides (1) were designed and synthesized as HDAC inhibitors. Extensive SARs have been established for in vitro potency (HDAC1 enzyme and COLO 205 cellular IC(50)), liver microsomal stability (t(1/2)), cytochrome P450 inhibitory (3A4 IC(50)), and clogP, among others. These parameters were(More)
SB1317 (TG02) is a novel small molecule potent CDK/JAK2/FLT3 inhibitor. To evaluate full potential of this development candidate, we conducted drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic studies of this novel anti-cancer agent. SB1317 was soluble, highly permeable in Caco-2 cells, and showed > 99% binding to plasma from mice, dog and humans. It was metabolically(More)
The preclinical absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) properties of Pracinostat [(2E)-3-[2-butyl-1-[2-(diethylamino) ethyl]-1H-benzimidazol-5-yl]-N-hydroxyarylamide hydrochloride; SB939], an orally active histone deacetylase inhibitor, were characterized and its human pharmacokinetics (PK) was predicted using Simcyp and allometric(More)
METHODS A novel, fully bacterially produced recombinant virus-like particle (VLP) based influenza vaccine (gH1-Qbeta) against A/California/07/2009(H1N1) was tested in a double-blind, randomized phase I clinical trial at two clinical sites in Singapore. The trial evaluated the immunogenicity and safety of gH1-Qbeta in the presence or absence of alhydrogel(More)
