Biological Activity

BIBW2992 (Afatinib) is a novel irreversible dual EGFR and HER2 tyrosine kinase inhibitor. The potency of BIBW2992 on the EGFR and HER2 kinases revealed IC50 values of 0.5 nM and 14 nM, respectively. BIBW2992 suppresses transformation in isogenic cell-based assays, inhibits survival of cancer cell lines and induces tumor regression in xenograft and transgenic lung cancer models, with superior activity over erlotinib.

Method Western Blot
Cell Lines HKESC-2 and EC-1 cell lines
Concentrations 0.1 μM
Incubation Time 24 h
Results In HKESC-2 and EC-1 cell lines, afatinib could suppress AKT phosphorylation in a dose and time dependent manner, in which the phosphorylation was almost completely abrogated when the cells were treated with concentrations around their corresponding IC50 (HKESC-2: 0.1 μM, EC-1: 1 μM) for 24 hours (Figure 3).

Method ELISA
Cell Lines ESCC cell lines
Concentrations 0.1 μM
Incubation Time 48 and 72 h
Results All 5 ESCC cell lines were sensitive to afatinib, in which over 95% of growth inhibition was observed after 48 and 72 hours of treatment (Figure 1B).
Cell Experiment
Cell lines NSCLC cells H1666, H3255 and NCI-H1975
Preparation method Growth inhibition of lung cancer cell lines by BIBW2992 and other EGFR and/or HER2 inhibitors (a) Sensitivity of NSCLC cell lines that express EGFR WT, Exon 19 Del, L858R/ T790M and HER2 INS776V to BIBW2992 and erlotinib. Dose-dependent growth inhibition was determined by MTS assay. Only HCC827 cells are sensitive to erlotinib whereas NCIH1781 and NCI-H1975 cells are also sensitive to BIBW2992. Points, average of two independent experiments, each done in triplicate; bars, s.d. *A549 cells harbor a Kras G12S mutation. See also in Supplementary Table 4. (b) Inhibition of anchorage independent cell proliferation of various lung cancer cell lines treated with BIBW2992, lapatinib, canertinib, gefitinib or erlotinib. The IC50 values were determined as described.

Animal models A431 cells mouse bearing tumor xenograft model
Formulation 0.5% methocellulose-0.4% polysorbate-80 (Tween 80)
Dosages 20 ml/kg body weight once daily
Administration oral gavage
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)

Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
