CAS#: 216227-54-2

Description: ONT-093, also known as OC-144-093, is an orally bioavailable P-glycoprotein pump inhibitor, for the potential reversal of multidrug resistance in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy. ONT-093 could inhibit P-gp and reverse multidrug resistance at nM concentrations with no effect on paclitaxel pharmacokinetics. OC144-093 is the least non-specifically toxic Pgp inhibitor described to date, with an average cytostatic IC50 of >60 microM in 15 cell types. OC144-093 may represent an ideal candidate for use in enhancement of AED blood-brain barrier penetration.

Additional Information

ONT-093 (formerly OC-144-093) is  a P-glycoprotein pump inhibitor, for the potential reversal of multidrug resistance in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy. The compound was also being evaluated for its potential enhancement of the oral bioavailability of drugs that are P-glycoprotein substrates requiring either high dosage forms or intravenous administration, and for the potential improvement of central nervous system penetration of P-glycoprotein substrate drugs [source: Prakash Mistry, Adrian Folkes. ONT-093 (Ontogen). Current opinion in investigational drugs (London, England : 2000). 2002 Nov;3(11): 1666-71 ]
A phase I pharmacokinetic study of ONT-093: Doses of ONT-093 achieving serum concentrations associated with biological activity were well tolerated in combination with standard doses of paclitaxel. Toxicities of the combination in this schedule were mainly attributable to paclitaxel and dose-limiting toxicity was limited to febrile neutropenia. There was an apparent pharmacokinetic interaction between paclitaxel and ONT-093, possibly related in part to the excipient, Cremophor, present in the paclitaxel formulation.
