Motesanib: A little too good.

Looks like this one might be coming off the ph3 list


Motesanib‘s got “higher early mortality rates

    AZ’s Zactima Phase III data were released yesterday also, and seemed less than impressive to me (no numbers provided – but maybe they are embargoed for an upcoming conference?), with no statistical significance for the OS improvement endpoint.

    AMG-706 is diphosphate. Is this the multi-targeted?. 125 mg per day….?
    Lower doses may work.

  3. goldilocks said

    Any idea what’s going on with AMG-273?

    KinasePro: have you noticed Kinasecentral from CrimsonCanary, ?

  5. kinasepro said

    read own blog much?

    meh. I’ve been performing a silent experiment wondering when she’d get around to linking to KP.

    I think you’re going to wait a long time. Linking to free sites when one is trying to sell something is seldom a good idea.

    And KinaseCentral needs some quality control. A headline describing a Pfizer disclosure on CP-690,550 links to the JMedChem paper on CP-690,550 from an NIH lab. Reading the by-line helps, ya know?

    Umm, but uh – dude it had the work kinase in it?

    I know, just headlines devoid of (free) analysis – but still, there are so many BMCL papers and industry announcements that if someone pre-reads them for me, it saves me from wadding through all that low-grade stuff. I found recently some BCML ASAP articles through KinaseCentral that could actually help us with a project.

    What do any of these comments have to do with the article? Is this an “educated” website, or is everyone here to advertise and complain about unrelated topics? This article was supposed to be about Motesanib and no one even metions it once…

    Educated? nah… We’re more like the peanut gallery.

  12. milkshake said

    …and some people have a peanut allergy. Anyway, I hope that the corporate lawyers and other due-diligence imbeciles won’t harass you for KinasePro, and that you will have energy and time to continue writing about kinase compounds in the next year. Happy holiday!

    You people really spend your time talking about and promoting small molecule kinase inhibitors? Highly selective, multi-target, blah, blah, blah. These compounds have killed more rats than Terminex. The highest concentrations of an orally administered kinase inhibitors are in the GI (mM) and the liver (uM)…they saturate the cytosol in the GI and other organs long before they ever make it to target tissue. Intestinal paralysis, elevated liver enzymes, organs swelling and shrinking. The whole kinase inhibitor thrust has been a quagmire. Our collections are now full of kinase inhibitors that have been a complete waste of chemistry resources.

    gleevec might evade GI tox partially owing to the fact as a prodrug. its active metabolite is 3~5x more potent. it is curious that few people in the field paid much attent to the later. It could a way to go for future kianse inhibitors. btw sorafenib has 5x and 3x higher accumulation in liver and kidney comparing to blood. no wonder it got approved in hcc and rcc.
