Discovery of the Irreversible Covalent FGFR Inhibitor 8-(3-(4-Acryloylpiperazin-1-yl)propyl)-6-(2,6-dichloro-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-2-(methylamino)pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidin-7(8H)-one (PRN1371) for the Treatment of Solid Tumors.

Aberrant signaling of the FGF/FGFR pathway occurs frequently in cancers and is an oncogenic driver in many solid tumors. Clinical validation of FGFR as a therapeutic target has been demonstrated in bladder, liver, lung, breast, and gastric cancers. Our goal was to develop an irreversible covalent inhibitor of FGFR1-4 for use in oncology indications. An irreversible covalent binding mechanism imparts many desirable pharmacological benefits including high potency, selectivity, and prolonged target inhibition. Herein we report the structure-based design, medicinal chemistry optimization, and unique ADME assays of our irreversible covalent drug discovery program which culminated in the discovery of compound 34 (PRN1371), a highly selective and potent FGFR1-4 inhibitor.
