AEE788 is a potent inhibitor of EGFR and HER2 (IC50=2 nM and 6 nM)
EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) is a cell-surface receptor tyrosine kinase. The receptor activation leads to dimerization and tyrosine autophosphorylation. It induces a cascade of downstream cellular responses such as modification in gene expression, cell proliferation and cytoskeletal rearrangement etc.
In HCT 15 colon cancer cells, AEE788 potentiated celecoxib-mediated blockage of proliferation and angiogenesis . In various cell line with EGFR and HER2-overexpressing, AEE788 exhibited antiproliferative activity . AEE788 also inhibited cell proliferation (IC50=1.7-3.8 µM) and prevented epidermal growth factor and neuregulin-induced activation of HER1, HER2, and HER3 in vitro .
Comparing with the control mice, AEE788 treated mice showed 54% inhibited tumor growth in 21 days after the initiation of the treatment . In ZR75.1 A3 xenograft mice, letrozole combined with AEE788 had a prominently greater tumor growth inhibition compared with letrozole treatment alone .
