MedKoo CAT#: 463682

CAS#: 129425-81-6

Description: MSA 2 is a non-nucleotide STING agonist. It exhibits antitumor activity and stimulates interferon-β secretion in tumors. MSA 2 induces tumor regression with durable antitumor immunity, and synergizes with anti-PD-1 in syngeneic mouse tumor models. It is also orally bioavailable.

Biological target: MSA-2, a potent and orally available non-nucleotide STING agonist, is bound to STING as a noncovalent dimer with nanomolar affinity. MSA-2 shows EC50s of 8.3 and 24 μM for human STING isoforms WT and HAQ, respectively.
In vitro activity: MSA-2 in solution exists as monomers and noncovalent dimers in an equilibrium that strongly favors monomers; MSA-2 monomers cannot bind STING, whereas the noncovalent MSA-2 dimers bind STING with nanomolar affinity. MSA-2 exhibits substantially higher cellular potency in an acidified tumor microenvironment than normal tissue, owing to increased cellular entry and retention combined with the inherently steep MSA-2 concentration dependence of STING occupancy.

In vivo activity: MSA-2 is orally available, manifesting similar oral and subcutaneous exposure in mice. In tumor-bearing mice, MSA-2 induced elevations of interferon-b in plasma and tumors by both routes of administration. Well-tolerated regimens of MSA-2 induced tumor regressions in mice bearing MC38 syngeneic tumors. In tumor models that are moderately or poorly responsive to PD-1 blockade, combinations of MSA-2 and anti-PD-1 antibody are superior in inhibiting tumor growth and prolonging survival over monotherapy.
