c-Abl Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitory Compounds and Methods of Manufacture and Use

Description of Technology

The invention includes compounds that inhibit c-Abl tyrosine kinase, and methods of making them which include administering (i) a therapeutically effective amount of the compound or a stereoisomer, tautomer, pharmaceutically acceptable salt, solvate, or prodrug thereof; or (ii) a therapeutically effective amount of the pharmaceutical compositions to a patient with the disease which involves c-Abl tyrosine kinase, including the overexpression of it. In some embodiments, the compound inhibits c-Abl tyrosine kinase by binding to an allosteric site of the c-Abl tyrosine kinase. In some embodiments, the compound binds to a myristate pocket of the c-Abl tyrosine kinase.

This technology is available for licensing for commercial development in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404, as well as for further Start Printed Page 54605development and evaluation under a research collaboration.

Potential Commercial Applications

  • Novel therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases AND other indications which involve c-Abl kinase (e.g., lysosomal storage disorders, cancers, etc.).

Competitive Advantages

  • Novel compounds that have a commercial advantage over those currently known because they are able to selectively bind to c-Abl at an allosteric site, can cross the blood-brain barrier, and show robust efficacy in several neurodegenerative models. All of this allows them to potentially treat neurodegenerative diseases, cancer etc.

Development Stage

  • Pre-Clinical (in vivo validation).
