GtoPdb Ligand ID: 8318

Synonyms: ABT-199 | GDC-0199 | Venclexta® | Venclyxto®
venetoclax is an approved drug (FDA and EMA (2016))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Venetoclax is a BH3 mimetic that selectively targets Bcl-2 [4], utilised for its pro-apoptotic activity. It is noteworthy that venetoclax is the first approved medicine designed to induce a natural process that helps cells self-destruct.
The IUPAC name provided by PubChem matches 'Example 5' claimed in patent US8580794 [1].
