Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitors

The hallmark of cancer is uncontrolled cellular proliferation mediated by the dysregulation of cell-cycle machinery and activation of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs). The agents which target CDKs have been seen as encouraging therapeutic targets in cancer treatment.

CDK4/6 Inhibitors

Although, due to their low efficacy and adverse events, the first-generation pan-CDK inhibitors failed in clinical trials, most recently, a new generation of selective CDK4/6 inhibitors, including Abemaciclib, Ribociclib, and Palbociclib, has shown powerful efficacy with tolerable safety in preclinical and clinical studies.

CDK Inhibitors from BioVision

Recent approval of Palbociclib (Ibrance®) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of HER2-negative and ER-positive breast cancer shows that, based on individual tumor genetics, CDK inhibitors with high selectivity profiles can have clinical utility for therapy. BioVision is proud to offer >25 potent and selective CDK inhibitors including Abemaciclib (LY-2835219), Palbociclib (PD0332991), Ribociclib, and Dinaciclib, for research.
