OSI-027 is a potent, orally bioavailable mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) kinase inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity. OSI-027 shows more than 100-fold selectivity for mTOR relative to PI3Kα, PI3Kβ, PI3Kγ and DNA-PK. OSI-027 inhibits phosphorylation of the mTORC1 substrates 4E-BP1 and S6K1 as well as the mTORC2 substrate AKT in diverse cancer models in vitro and in vivo. OSI-027 potently inhibits proliferation of several rapamycin-sensitive and -insensitive nonengineered and engineered cancer cell lines and also, induce cell death in tumor cell lines with activated PI3K-AKT signaling. In contrast to rapamycin, OSI-027 induced apoptosis in a variety of lymphoid cell lines and clinical samples, including specimens of B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), mantle cell lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma and Sezary syndrome. Furthermore, OSI-027 shows superior efficacy compared with rapamycin in COLO 205 and GEO colon cancer xenograft models. OSI-027 is currently in phase I clinical trials in cancer patients.
|Source||Oncotarget (2015). Figure 2. OSI-027|
|Cell Lines||PDAC cell lines|
|Concentrations||5 and 10 μM|
|Incubation Time||48 and 72 h|
|Results||Flow cytometry assay showed 5 μM OSI-027 induced cell cycle arrest in the G0/G1 phase in Panc-1, BxPC-3, and CFPAC-1 cells, whereas RAPA had little effect on cell cycle. Moreover, 10 μM OSI-027 further upregulated the proportion of cells arrested in G0/ G1 phase|
|Cell lines||MDA-MB-231, MDA MB 435, PC-3, OVCAR-3, A549, DU145, NCI-H2122, U 87 MG and ACHN cell lines|
|Preparation method||For assays of cell proliferation, cells were seeded into 96-well plates and incubated for 3 days in the presence of OSI-027 or OXA-01 at various concentrations. Inhibition of cell growth was determined by luminescent quantification of intracellular ATP content using CellTiterGlo® (Promega). Proliferation on Day 0 vs. 72h was used to plot dose-response curves for IC50 calculations and to determine cell death.|
|Incubation time||72 h|
|Animal models||nu/nu CD-1 mice bearing MDA-MB-231 xenograft model|
|Dosages||25 or 65 mg/kg QD for 14 days|
|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.
