In vitro: In cells, inhibition of FGFR2 auto-phosphorylation and other proteins downstream in the FGFR pathway (FRS2α, AKT, ERK) was evident by the response to ARQ 087 treatment. Cell proliferation studies demonstrated ARQ 087 has anti-proliferative activity in cell lines driven by FGFR dysregulation, including amplifications, fusions, and mutations. Cell cycle studies in cell lines with high levels of FGFR2 protein showed a positive relationship between ARQ 087 induced G1 cell cycle arrest and subsequent induction of apoptosis.
In vivo: ARQ 087 was effective at inhibiting tumor growth in vivo in FGFR2 altered, SNU-16 and NCI-H716, xenograft tumor models with gene amplifications and fusions. ARQ 087 is currently being studied in a phase 1/2 clinical trial that includes a sub cohort for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma patients with confirmed FGFR2 gene fusions.
|Cell lines||COS-1 cells|
|Preparation method||Cells were seeded at 3000–5000 cells per well with 130 μL media in 96-well tissue culture treated plates. The cells were incubated overnight and subsequently treated with 3-fold serial dilutions of ARQ 087 starting at 100 μM. The cells were returned to a 37°C humidified incubator for 72 hours.|
|Incubation time||72 h|
|Animal models||female NCr nu/nu mice (SNU-16) or CB17 SCID mice (NCI-H716)|
|Formulation||DMA: cremophor EL: propylene glycol: 0.2 M acetate buffer, pH 5 (10:10:30:50)|
|Dosages||10 mL/kg or 0.1 mL/10 g|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
|Solubility||10 mM in DMSO|
ARQ 087 inhibits FGFR signaling and rescues aberrant cell proliferation and differentiation in experimental models of craniosynostoses and chondrodysplasias caused by activating mutations in FGFR1, FGFR2 and FGFR3.
