MedKoo CAT#: 205599
Description: PTC299, a VEGF inhibitor, is an orally bioavailable, small molecule inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) synthesis with potential antiangiogenesis and antineoplastic activities. VEGF inhibitor PTC299 targets post-transcriptionally by selectively binding the 5'- and 3'-untranslated regions (UTR) of VEGF messenger RNA (mRNA), thereby preventing translation of VEGF. This inhibits VEGF protein production and decreases its levels in the tumor and bloodstream. In turn, this may result in the inhibition of migration, proliferation and survival of endothelial cells, microvessel formation, the inhibition of tumor cell proliferation, and eventually the induction of tumor cell death.

PTC299 is currently being developed for the treatment of cancer. It has completed Phase 1a trials in healthy volunteers, and is now being studied in a Phase 1-2 trials in patients with solid tumors, metastatic breast cancer and neurofibromatosis type 2. PTC299 was designed to inhibit VEGF production in tumors. Because PTC299 inhibits VEGF production, its action occurs at a different point in the VEGF pathway than other therapies. PTC299 may be active both as a single agent or when used in combination with other anti-angiogenic agents or with chemotherapy agents for the treatment of cancers.
