Description: Alisertib, also known as MLN8237, is a second-generation, orally bioavailable, highly selective small molecule inhibitor of the serine/threonine protein kinase Aurora A kinase with potential antineoplastic activity. Aurora kinase inhibitor MLN8237 binds to and inhibits Aurora A kinase, which may result in disruption of the assembly of the mitotic spindle apparatus, disruption of chromosome segregation, and inhibition of cell proliferation.

MLN-8237 is an Aurora A kinase blocker designed to disrupt the cycle of cancer cells. It is being tested in several types of cancer as monotherapy and in combination with different chemotherapy regimens. Millennium expects MLN-8237 to progress to mid-stage trials later in 2009. If MLN-8237 survives the clinical trial process, it may become the first approved therapy in the Aurora A kinase blocker class. Millennium is in a race, however, with research and development divisions at other pharmaceutical companies that are testing their own Aurora A kinase blockers. see: www.hcplive.com/media/pdf/May09_09PFN.pdf .
