AXL kinase inhibitors Understanding

AXL kinase inhibitors: Overview

AXL (anexelekto) is a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) belonging to the TAM family. It is a cell-surface transmembrane receptor that exerts regulated kinase activity through its cytoplasmic domain. Other members of the TAM family are Mer and Tyro3. AXL is widely expressed in many organs, such as macrophages, endothelial cells, heart, liver and skeletal muscle, where it plays a variety of roles, including clearing apoptotic material, regulating cell survival, maintaining vascular integrity, and hematopoiesis. The AXL receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) is unique in that AXL gene alterations are rare, but AXL expression is upregulated on the cell surface in many cancer types, suggesting an advantage for cancer cells. GAS6/AXL signalling functions as an important pathway driving cancer cell survival, proliferation, migration and invasion, which makes AXL a potential target in cancer treatment. AXL's crucial role in both tumour biology and therapeutic resistance, makes it an attractive target for antineoplastic therapies. Therefore, targeting the AXL to inhibit its function might be a promising strategy for the treatment of various malignant tumors. Different strategies of targeting the AXL have already been considered.

"AXL kinase inhibitors - Pipeline Insight, 2021" report outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the AXL kinase inhibitors pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and AXL kinase inhibitors treatment guidelines.

It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

AXL kinase inhibitors Emerging Drugs

Cabozantinib: Exelixis/Ipsen

Cabozantinib: Exelixis/Ipsenxelixis’ flagship compound cabozantinib is a targeted agent that inhibits the activity of receptor tyrosine kinases including MET, AXL, VEGF receptors and RET. These receptor tyrosine kinases are involved in both normal cellular function and in pathologic processes such as oncogenesis, metastasis, tumor angiogenesis, and resistance to multiple therapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). In the U.S., CABOMETYX tablets are approved for the treatment of patients with advanced RCC; for the treatment of patients with HCC who have been previously treated with sorafenib; for patients with advanced RCC as a first-line treatment in combination with nivolumab; and for adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older with locally advanced or metastatic differentiated thyroid cancer that has progressed following prior VEGFR-targeted therapy and who are radioactive iodine-refractory or ineligible. Cabozantinib is being developed by Exelixis/Ipsen and it is currently in Phase III for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Differentiated Thyroid Cancer, and Renal Cell Carcinoma. Phase II for Bladder Cancer, Colorectal Cancer. Phase I/II for Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors. Phase I for Metastatic Genitourinary Tumors. Exelixis and Ipsen are together working on Cabozantinib for different indications.

Sitravatinib: Mirati Therapeutics/BeiGene

Sitravatinib: Mirati Therapeutics/BeiGeneitravatinib is a spectrum-selective kinase inhibitor that inhibits receptor tyrosine kinases (“RTK”s), including TAM family receptors (TYRO3, Axl, Mer), split family receptors (VEGFR2, KIT) and RET. This is designed to overcome resistance to checkpoint inhibitor therapy, a common problem with most approved checkpoint inhibitors. The molecule is being investigated in a phase III trial as a combo in NSCLC following disease progression. Through its partner BeiGene, the molecule is also being investigated in other solid tumors. Mirati Therapeutics is working on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) which is currently in Phase III of development and for Bladder Cancer. Beigene is working on advanced solid tumors and Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Gastric/Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer, Advanced Biliary Tract Cancer which is currently in Phase II of development.

Batiraxcept: Aravive

Batiraxcept: Araviveatiraxcept is a therapeutic recombinant fusion protein that has been shown to neutralize GAS6 activity by binding to GAS6 with very high affinity in preclinical models. In doing so, batiraxcept selectively inhibits the GAS6-AXL signaling pathway, which is upregulated in multiple cancer types including ovarian, renal and pancreatic. In preclinical studies, GAS6-AXL inhibition has shown anti-tumor activity in combination with a variety of anticancer therapies, including radiation therapy, immuno-oncology agents, and chemotherapeutic drugs that affect DNA replication and repair. Increased expression of AXL and GAS6 in tumors has been correlated with poor prognosis and decreased survival and has been implicated in therapeutic resistance to conventional chemotherapeutics and targeted therapies. In ovarian cancer, increased GAS6 expression has been demonstrated. Batiracept is currently in Phase III for Platinum-resistant Ovarian Cancer, Phase II for Urothelial Carcinoma, Phase I/II for Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma.

ONO-7475: Ono Pharmaceutical

ONO-7475: Ono PharmaceuticalNO-7475 is being developed by Ono Pharmaceutical and it is currently in Phase I/II for Acute Leukemia and Myelodysplastic Syndromes, Phase Me for Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors. It acts as AXL receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors, Proto-oncogene protein c-mer inhibitors. In company’s pipeline the product is in phase II stage of development.
