Imatinib (STI571 or CGP57148B) is an innovative treatment for tumours with a constitutively activated form of c-ABL, c-KIT, or PDGFR. Such tumours include Philadelphia-chromosome-positive (Ph-positive) leukaemias, gastrointestinal stromal tumours, and PDGFR-positive leukaemias. Diseases such as primary hypereosinophilia and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans(More)
BCR/ABL (Breakpoint Cluster Region protein/Abelson tyrosine-protein kinase 1) kinase domain (KD) mutations represent the most frequently described mechanism of resistance to the treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Mutations may impair TKI activity by directly or indirectly impairing the drug(More)
Thyroid neoplasia is frequently associated with rearranged during transfection (RET) proto-oncogene mutations that cause hyperactivation of RET kinase activity. Selective inhibition of RET-mediated signaling should lead to an efficacious therapy. SU5416 is a potent inhibitor of vascular endothelial cell growth factor receptor, c-Kit, and FLT-3 receptor(More)
The synthesis, structure-activity relationships (SAR) and structural data of a series of indolin-2-one inhibitors of RET tyrosine kinase are described. These compounds were designed to explore the available space around the indolinone scaffold within RET active site. Several substitutions at different positions were tested and biochemical data were used to(More)
