ETC-159 is a potent, selective and orally available PORCN inhibitor, which inhibits β-catenin reporter activity with an IC50 of 2.9 nM. ETC-159 blocks the secretion and activity of all Wnts. ETC-159 has robust activity in multiple cancer models driven by high Wnt signaling.
ETC-159 is remarkably effective in treating RSPO-translocation bearing colorectal cancer (CRC) patient-derived xenografts. ETC-159 inhibits mouse PORCN with an IC50 of 18.1 nM, whereas the IC50 for Xenopus Porcn is approximately four fold higher (70 nM). ETC-159 exhibits good oral pharmacokinetics in mice allowing preclinical evaluation via oral administration. After a single oral dose of 5 mg/kg, ETC-159 is rapidly absorbed into the blood with a Tmax of ~0.5 h and oral bioavailability of 100%
|Cell lines||HEK293 cells, STF3A cells|
|Preparation method||HEK293 cells stably transfected with STF reporter and pPGK-WNT3A plasmid (STF3A cells) are treated with varying concentrations of compounds. For Wnt secretion, STF3A cells are treated with ETC-159 diluted in 1% fetal bovine serum-containing media.|
|Incubation time||24 h|
|Formulation||Formulated in 50% PEG400 (vol/vol) in water|
|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||DMSO: ≥ 25 mg/mL|
