MedKoo CAT#: 525670

CAS#: 471905-41-6

Description: MK0752 is a synthetic small molecule with potential antineoplastic activity. MK0752 inhibits the Notch signaling pathway, which may result in induction of growth arrest and apoptosis in tumor cells in which the Notch signaling pathway is overactivated. The Notch signaling pathway plays an important role in cell-fate determination, cell survival, and cell proliferation. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.

Additional Information

MK-0752 is a potent gamma secretase inhibitor in clinical development (IC50 50 nM). Phase I clinical trials results reported in 2006 showed that MK-0752 was well-tolerated in a limited number of patients below 300 mg/m2, and further enrollment was underway to establish the MTD. Plasma concentrations of MK-0752 at all doses were sufficient to inhibit gamma secretase. (source: D. J. Deangelo, R. M. Stone, L. B. Silverman, W. Stock, E. C. Attar, I. Fearen, A. Dallob, C.
