MedKoo CAT#: 406533

CAS#: 1454846-35-5 (free base)

Description: Lorlatinib, also known as PF-06463922, is an orally available, ATP-competitive inhibitor of the receptor tyrosine kinases, anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and C-ros oncogene 1 (Ros1), with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon administration, ALK/ROS1 inhibitor PF-06463922 binds to and inhibits both ALK and ROS1 kinases. The kinase inhibition leads to disruption of ALK- and ROS1-mediated signaling and eventually inhibits tumor cell growth in ALK- and ROS1-overexpressing tumor cells. In addition, PF-06463922 is able to cross the blood brain barrier.

Biological target: Lorlatinib is a ROS1/ALK inhibitor with Kis of <0.025 nM, <0.07 nM, and 0.7 nM for ROS1, wild type ALK, and ALKL1196M, respectively.
In vitro activity: To compare PF-06463922 and crizotinib over a broader range of ALK-driven tumors, their abilities to inhibit growth of a range of cell-lines in vitro were assessed. As shown in Fig. 4 and Table S1, IC50 values measured for PF-06463922 in neuroblastoma cell-lines dependent on R1275Q-mutated ALK were 51-fold (NB-1643) and 19-fold (LAN-5) lower than those measured for crizotinib (Fig. 4A and B) – which themselves were ~310 nM. Importantly, IC50 values for PF-06463922 inhibition of cell-lines driven by the ALK-resistant F1174L ALK variant were also much lower – falling in the range of 12.7 nM to 26.6 nM, which is ~30-fold lower than measured for crizotinib (Fig. 4C–F and Table S1). A similar difference was also seen for Felix cells, driven by the F1245C variant (Fig. 4G). Whereas a small (~3-fold) difference in IC50 appeared to be sufficient to explain the relative crizotinib resistance of tumors and cell-lines driven by F1174L-mutated ALK in neuroblastoma compared with those driven by R1275Q (11), the overall higher potency of PF-06463922 appears to render such differences irrelevant – so that both tumor cell-lines (Fig. 4) and xenografts (Fig. 2) driven by the F1174L variant are sensitive to PF-06463922. The same appears to be true for the F1245C variant. Similar results were seen for NB-1 cells, driven by amplified wild-type ALK – with IC50 values of 256 nM and 5.2 nM for crizotinib and PF-06463922 respectively (Fig. 4H).

In vivo activity: The in vivo efficacy of PF-06463922 was examined in patient-derived xenografts (PDXs) harboring F1174L or F1245C ALK mutations (COG-N-453x and Felix-PDX respectively), as well as cell line-derived xenografts utilizing SH-SY5Y cells (F1174L) or NB-1643 cells (R1275Q). Treatment with 10 mg/kg/day PF-06463922 (5 mg/kg BID) resulted in rapid (within 2–3 weeks) and sustained complete tumor regression for the duration of treatment in all xenografts (red curves in Fig. 2, and Table 1A). After PF-06463922 treatment was stopped, animals were further monitored for tumor progression by observation and palpation. Mice that had been treated with 10 mg/kg/day PF-06463922 remained in complete remission with no discernible tumor growth for a further 4.8 weeks (COG-N-453x), 7.1 weeks (Felix-PDX), 5 weeks (SH-SY5Y) and 4 weeks (NB-1643), as shown in Fig. S2A–D. Thus, xenografts harboring the ALK F1174L mutation exhibited unprecedented anti-tumor responses to single agent ALK inhibition therapy with PF-06463922, as did a PDX harboring the F1245C mutation.
