Summary of Clinical Use
AZD5438 has reached Phase I clinical trial in patients with advanced solid malignancies (NCT00088790).
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Dysregulation of the CDK-driven pathway is common in tumour cells [2-4], making CDKs attractive anti-cancer molecular targets [5]. Due to the functional redundancy amongst CDKs and their cyclin binding partners compounds which target a range of CDKs are likely to be more clinically effective than selective CDK inhibitors. AZD5438 causes cell cycle arrest in vitro, which translates to an antiproliferative effect in vivo [1].
