Description: Crizotinib, also known as PF-02341066, is an orally bioavailable agent belonging to the class of c-met/hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors with potential antineoplastic activity. Crizotinib was approved for treatment of some non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) in the US, and undergoing clinical trials testing its safety and efficacy in anaplastic large cell lymphoma, neuroblastoma, and other advanced solid tumors in both adults and childre. Crizotinib inhibits the membrane receptor MET and activation of the MET signaling pathway, which may block tumor cell growth, migration and invasion, and tumor angiogenesis in susceptible tumor cell populations. Crizotinib was approved in 2011.

Additional Information

1.  Crizotinib's phyisical and chemical properties:
Crizotinib is a white to pale-yellow powder with a pKa of 9.4 (piperidinium cation) and 5.6 (pyridinium cation).
2 . The solubility of crizotinib:
The solubility of crizotinib in aqueous media decreases over the range pH 1.6 to pH 8.2 from greater than 10 mg/mL to less than 0.1 mg/mL. The log of the distribution coefficient (octanol/water) at pH 7.4 is 1.65.
3. Mechanism of action:
Crizotinib is an inhibitor of receptor tyrosine kinases including ALK, Hepatocyte Growth Factor Receptor (HGFR, c-Met), and Recepteur d'Origine Nantais (RON). Crizotinib has an aminopyridine structure, and functions as a protein kinase inhibitor by competitive binding within the ATP-binding pocket of target kinases . Crizotinib demonstrated concentration-dependent inhibition of ALK and c-Met phosphorylation in cell-based assays using tumor cell lines and demonstrated antitumor activity in mice bearing tumor xenografts that expressed EML4- or NPM-ALK fusion proteins or c-Met.
Crizotinib also inhibits the c-Met/Hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR) tyrosine kinase, which is involved in the oncogenesis of a number of other histological forms of malignant neoplasms. Crizotinib is currently thought to exert its effects through modulation of the growth, migration, and invasion of malignant cells. Other studies suggest that crizotinib may also act via inhibition of angiogenesis in malignant tumors.(source:

On August 26, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved crizotinib (Xalkori) to treat certain late-stage (locally advanced or metastatic) non-small cell lung cancers that express the abnormal anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene.
