Semafore Pharmaceuticals Reports Positive Interim Results from a Phase I Study of SF1126, a Targeted Pan-PI3K Inhibitor, in Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors
Date:6/4/2008

SF1126 is a small-molecule conjugate containing a pan-PI3K inhibitor that selectively inhibits all PI3K class I isoforms. In addition to inhibiting PI3 kinase, SF1126 inhibits mTOR, DNA-PK, Polo-like 1 kinases, PIM1 and CK2 - all believed to play significant roles in the control of cell survival/proliferation signals and in cancer. SF1126 is the only PI3K inhibitor demonstrated in preclinical studies to cause an oxidative stress mechanism in cancer cells, resulting in decreased proliferation and apoptosis. A major factor in tumor resistance to approved chemotherapy agents is thought to be the activation of the PI3K/PTEN pathway. As a result, it is believed that inhibiting this pathway with SF1126 could resensitize the cancer cells to approved anticancer agents and lead to possible synergistic anticancer activity. Clinical combination studies with SF1126 are being planned.
