Abstract Text The PIK3CA gene, encoding the p110α catalytic unit of PI3Kα, is one of the most frequently mutated oncogenes in human cancer. Hence, PI3Kα is a target subject to intensive efforts in identifying inhibitors and evaluating their therapeutic potential. Here, we report studies with a novel PI3K inhibitor, AZD8835, currently in phase I clinical evaluation. AZD8835 is a potent inhibitor of PI3Kα and PI3Kδ with selectivity versus PI3Kβ, PI3Kγ, and other kinases that preferentially inhibited growth in cells with mutant PIK3CA status, such as in estrogen receptor-positive (ER(+)) breast cancer cell lines BT474, MCF7, and T47D (sub-μmol/L GI50s). Consistent with this, AZD8835 demonstrated antitumor efficacy in corresponding breast cancer xenograft models when dosed continuously. In addition, an alternative approach of intermittent high-dose scheduling (IHDS) was explored given our observations that higher exposures achieved greater pathway inhibition and induced apoptosis. Indeed, using IHDS, monotherapy AZD8835 was able to induce tumor xenograft regression. Furthermore, AZD8835 IHDS in combination with other targeted therapeutic agents further enhanced antitumor activity (up to 92% regression). Combination partners were prioritized on the basis of our mechanistic insights demonstrating signaling pathway cross-talk, with a focus on targeting interdependent ER and/or CDK4/6 pathways or alternatively a node (mTOR) in the PI3K-pathway, approaches with demonstrated clinical benefit in ER(+) breast cancer patients. In summary, AZD8835 IHDS delivers strong antitumor efficacy in a range of combination settings and provides a promising alternative to continuous dosing to optimize the therapeutic index in patients. Such schedules merit clinical evaluation. Mol Cancer Ther; 15(5); 877-89. ©2016 AACR.

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
