Subtle… Interesting… and thoroughly Swiss

WO/2007/062805 is a ‘multi-target’ application from Novartis that tags the earlier WO/2006/050946 with the Gleevec H1.


Claim 11 suggests a few targets on their minds in addition to the titled Vegf / Ephb4:

11. The use according to claim 10, where the protein kinase modulation responsive disease is one or more diseases selected from the group consisting of diseases, that respond to the inhibition of one or more protein tyrosine kinases selected from abl kinase, especially v-abl or c-abl kinase, kinases from the family of the src kinases, especially c-src kinase, b-raf (V599E) and/or especially RET-receptor kinase or Ephrin receptor kinases, or mutated forms thereof.
