Pim kinase inhibitor SGI-1776 
A small-molecule pan-Pim protein kinase inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity. Pim kinase inhibitor SGI-1776 binds to and inhibits the activities of Pim-1, -2 and -3, serine-threonine kinases, which may result in the interruption of the G1/S phase cell cycle transition, the expression of pro-apoptotic Bcl2 proteins and tumor cell apoptosis. PIM kinases play key roles in cell cycle progression and apoptosis inhibition and may be overexpressed in various malignancies. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
