Synonyms: Compound 1 [WO2018107100A1] | VX-445
elexacaftor is an approved drug (FDA (2019))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Elexacaftor (VX-445) is a next-generation CFTR corrector type agent. Like its predecessor tezacaftor, elexacaftor is designed to improve CFTR protein processing and trafficking in the presence of the F508del mutation, although because its mechanism of action is different from that of tezacaftor, its functional effects appear to be additive . As such a triple combination therapeutic with tezacaftor, izacaftor (a CFTR potentiator that increases CFTR channel gating activity) and elexacaftor increases CFTR function beyond that achieved by current standard of care with tezacaftor/izacaftor, and improves clinical symptoms in patients with cystic fibrosis with one or two F508del alleles .
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
