FGFR4 inhibitor ICP-105
An orally bioavailable inhibitor of human fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGFR4), with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon oral administration, ICP-105 specifically targets, binds to and blocks the binding of the ligand FGF19 to FGFR4. This prevents the activation of FGFR4, inhibits FGFR4-mediated signaling and leads to an inhibition of tumor cell proliferation in FGFR4-overexpressing cells. FGFR4, a receptor tyrosine kinase overexpressed on a variety of cancer cell types, is involved in tumor cell proliferation, differentiation, angiogenesis, and survival. FGF19 is overexpressed by certain tumor cell types. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
