Biological Activity

AZD 2281 (Olaparib, KU-0059436) is a  novel, potent orally active PARP (poly ADP-ribose polymerase) inhibitorwith IC50 of 5 and 1 nM for PARP-1and PARP-2  respectively. AZD 2281 (Olaparib, KU-0059436) acts as an inhibitor of the enzyme Poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) and is one of the first PARP inhibitors.It induces cancer specific synthetic lethality in homologous recombination repair defective cells, including BRCA-deficient tumors. Olaparib is an autophagy and mitophagy activator.

Results In mice co-treated with olaparib and MK-2206, tumor volume was only increased ~1.8-fold at this same time, indicating that these agents exerted a additive effect on tumor growth.

Results Inhibition of autophagy by knocking down ATG5 also partially inhibited AZD2281-induced apoptosis, suggesting that autophagy contributes to AZD2281-induced cell death in BRCA mutated breast cancer cells.

Cell Lines BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutant breast cancer cell lines
Concentrations 2 μM
Incubation Time 4 day
Results The growth inhibition effect of AZD2281 was significantly higher in the BRCA wild-type cell lines with BRCA1 allelic loss than in the BRCA wild-type cell line without BRCA1 allelic loss.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines SW620 colorectal cell line
Preparation method Potentiation of MMS Cytotoxicity by 47 Determined by the Use of Sulforhodamine B Cell Growth Assays. SW620 cells were seeded in 96-well plates and were left to attach overnight. Cells were preincubated with vehicle control (DMSO) or with a single concentration of KU-0059436 (1, 3, 10, 30, 100 or 300 nM) for 1 h before the addition of increasing concentrations of MMS. Cells were incubated in the presence of each drug combination for 4 days before cell growth was quantified by the use of an SRB assay.44 Data were calculated from triplicate wells as the mean percentage of cell growth relative to KU-0059436-only wells, and (SE and IC50 were calculated by the use of XL-FIT 4 software. SW620 cells showed <24% growth inhibition (>76% cell growth) when only KU-0059436 was used at concentrations below 300 nM (data not shown).

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.
