Description: Ceritinib, also known as LDK-378, is a selective inhibitor of ALK1, a target found in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In Phase I trials, LDK378 showed a marked clinical response in 78 patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase positive (ALK+) metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who had progressed during or after crizotinib therapy or had not been previously treated with crizotinib. LDK378 blocks the ALK protein and stops it sending growth signals to cancer cells, which may stop them growing. Ceritinib was approved in April 2014.

|Biological target:||Ceritinib (LDK378) is a selective, ATP-competitive ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitor with an IC50 of 200 pM.|
|In vitro activity:||Interrogation of in vitro models of acquired resistance to crizotinib, including cell lines established from biopsies of crizotinib-resistant NSCLC patients, revealed that ceritinib potently overcomes crizotinib resistance mutations. In particular, ceritinib effectively inhibits ALK harboring L1196M, G1269A, I1171T and S1206Y mutations, and a co-crystal of ceritinib bound to ALK provides structural bases for this increased potency. However, ceritinib did not overcome two crizotinib-resistant ALK mutations, G1202R and F1174C. Reference: Cancer Discov. 2014 Jun;4(6):662-673. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4068971/|
|In vivo activity:||The efficacy of ceritinib was tested against crizotinib-resistant H2228 xenograft tumor models as well as one of the resistance models that did not harbor a resistance mutation nor ALK amplification. While each was resistant to crizotinib at 100 mg/kg, ceritinib suppressed tumor growth in multiple resistance models (Fig.5A, B, C and D). In the wild-type and I1171T resistant models, ceritinib demonstrated impressive anti-tumor activity, while it was less active in the C1156Y resistant model and was inactive against the G1202R resistant model. This data is consistent with the Ba/F3 models in which ceritinib was more potent against I1171T than the C1156Y and G1202R mutants (Fig. 4A). This data provides evidence that ceritinib can overcome resistance in vivo, especially in tumors harboring wild-type, L1196M or I1171T ALK fusion genes.
