PI3K delta/gamma inhibitor RP6530 An orally active, highly selective, small molecule inhibitor of the delta and gamma isoforms of phosphoinositide-3 kinase (PI3K) with potential immunomodulating and antineoplastic activities. Upon administration, PI3K delta/gamma inhibitor RP6530 inhibits the PI3K delta and gamma isoforms and prevents the activation of the PI3K/AKT-mediated signaling pathway. This may lead to a reduction in cellular proliferation in PI3K delta/gamma-expressing tumor cells. In addition, this agent modulates inflammatory responses through various mechanisms, including the inhibition of both the release of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from neutrophils and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha activity. Unlike other isoforms of PI3K, the delta and gamma isoforms are overexpressed primarily in hematologic malignancies and in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. By selectively targeting these isoforms, PI3K signaling in normal, non-neoplastic cells is minimally impacted or not affected at all, which minimizes the side effect profile for this agent. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

RP6530 is a potent and selective dual PI3Kδ/γ inhibitor that inhibited growth of B-cell lymphoma cell lines with a concomitant reduction in the downstream biomarker, pAKT. Additionally, the compound showed cytotoxicity in a panel of lymphoma primary cells. Findings provide a rationale for future clinical trials in B-cell malignancies.

Description

Rhizen is developing dual PI3K gamma/delta inhibitors for liquid tumors and inflammatory conditions.

Mechanism of Action

While alpha and beta isoforms are ubiquitous in their distribution, expression of delta and gamma is restricted to circulating hematogenous cells and endothelial cells. Unlike PI3K-alpha or beta, mice lacking expression of gamma or delta do not show any adverse phenotype indicating that targeting of these specific isoforms would not result in overt toxicity. Dual delta/gamma inhibition is strongly implicated as an intervention strategy in allergic and non-allergic inflammation of the airways and other autoimmune diseases. Scientific evidence for PI3K-delta and gamma involvement in various cellular processes underlying asthma and COPD stems from inhibitor studies and gene-targeting approaches. Also, resistance to conventional therapies such as corticosteroids in several COPD patients has been attributed to an up-regulation of the PI3K delta/gamma pathway. Disruption of PI3K-delta/gamma signalling therefore provides a novel strategy aimed at counteracting the immuno-inflammatory response. Due to the pivotal role played by PI3K-delta and gamma in mediating inflammatory cell functionality such as leukocyte migration and activation, and mast cell degranulation, blocking these isoforms may also be an effective strategy for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis as well.
Given the established criticality of these isoforms in immune surveillance, inhibitors specifically targeting the delta and gamma isoforms would be expected to attenuate the progression of immune response encountered in airway inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis.

Clinical Trials

Rhizen has identified an orally active Lead Molecule, RP-6530, that has an excellent pre-clinical profile. RP-6530 is currently in non-GLP Tox studies and is expected to enter Clinical Development in H2 2013.
In December 2013, Rhizen announced the start of a Phase I clinical trial. The study entitled A Phase-I, Dose Escalation Study to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of RP6530, a dual PI3K delta /gamma inhibitor, in patients with Relapsed or Refractory Hematologic Malignancies is designed primarily to establish the safety and tolerability of RP6530. Secondary objectives include clinical efficacy assessment and biomarker response to allow dose determination and potential patient stratification in subsequent expansion studies.

Partners by Region

Rhizen’s pipeline consists of internally discovered (with 100% IP ownership) novel small molecule programs aimed at high value markets of Oncology, Immuno-inflammtion and Metabolic Disorders. Rhizen has been successful in securing critical IP space in these areas and efforts are on for further expansion in to several indications. Rhizen seeks partnerships to unlock the potential of these valuable assets for further development from global pharmaceutical partners. At present global rights on all programs are available and Rhizen is flexible to consider suitable business models for licensing/collaboration.
In 2012, Rhizen announced a joint venture collaboration with TG Therapeutics for global development and commercialization of Rhizen’s Novel Selective PI3K Kinase Inhibitors. The selected lead RP5264 (hereafter, to be developed as TGR-1202) is an orally available, small molecule, PI3K specific inhibitor currently being positioned for the treatment of haematological malignancies.

Abstract

Background: Myelofibrosis (MF) represents a life-threatening neoplasm that manifests particularly in the elderly population and is characterized by bone marrow fibrosis and extramedullary hematopoeisis. While ruxolitinib, a JAK1/2 inhibitor, has recently been approved by the USFDA for its disease modifying potential in MF patients, it is still not considered as a curative option. Targeting another kinase such as PI3K, downstream of JAK, could therefore be a more efficient way of treating myelofibrotic neoplasms. RP6530 is a novel, potent, and selective PI3K δ/γ inhibitor that demonstrated high potency against PI3Kδ (IC50 = 25 nM) and γ (IC50 = 33 nM) enzymes with selectivity over α (>300-fold) and β (>100-fold) isoforms. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of a combination of ruxolitinib and RP6530 in the JAK2-V617F mutant Human Erythroleukemia (HEL) cell line.
Methods: Passive resistance was conferred by incubating HEL cells with increasing concentrations of ruxolitinib over an 8-10-week period. Endogenous JAK2, PI3Kδ, PI3Kδ, and pAKT were estimated by Western Blotting. RP6530, ruxolitinib, and the combination of RP6530 + Ruxolitinib were tested for their effect on viability and apoptosis. Cell viability was assessed by a MTT assay. Induction of apoptosis was analyzed by Annexin V/PI staining.
Results: Resistance to ruxolitinib was confirmed by a right-ward shift in EC50 of ruxolitinib in a HEL cell proliferation assay (0.82 μM Vs. 12.2 μM). Endogeous pAKT expression was 3.7-fold higher in HEL-RR compared to HEL-RS cells indicating activation of the AKT signaling pathway. While single-agent activity of RP6530 was modest (33-46% inhibition @ 10 μM) in both HEL-RS and HEL-RR cells, addition of 10 μM RP6530 to ruxolitinib was synergistic resulting in a near-complete inhibition of proliferation (>90% for HEL-RS and >70% for HEL-RR). While the order of addition did not affect the potency of RP6530, addition of 5 μM RP6530, 4 h prior to the addition of ruxolitinib resulted in a significant reduction in EC50 of ruxolitinib (5.8 μM) in HEL-RR cells. On lines with cell proliferation data, incubation of 10 μM RP6530 with ruxolitinib for 72 h increased the percent of apoptotic cells (55% in HEL-RS and 37% in HEL-RR) compared to either agent alone (16-27% in HEL-RS and 17-21% in HEL-RR).
Conclusions: Ruxolitinib resistance in the V617F JAK-2 mutant HEL cells is accompanied by an increase in pAKT expression. Inhibition of pAKT via the addition of RP6530, a dual PI3K δ/γ inhibitor, resulted in a reversal of ruxolitinib resistance. Complementary activity was also observed in HEL-RS cells indicating that a combination of ruxolitinib and RP6530 could have a positive bearing on the clinical outcome in MF patients.
