BFH772 is a potent oral VEGFR2 inhibitor, which is highly effective at targeting VEGFR2 kinase with an IC50 value of 3 nM.

IC50 & Target[1]


3 nM (IC50)

In Vitro

BFH772 is highly selective; apart from inhibiting VEGFR2 at 3 nM IC50, it also targets B-RAF, RET, and TIE-2, albeit with at least 40-fold lower potency. BFH772 is inactive (IC50>10 μM; >2 μM for cKIT) against all other tyrosine specific- and serine/threonine-specific protein kinases tested. BFH772 inhibits VEGFR2 with IC50 of 4.6±0.6 nM in CHO cells. BFH772 inhibits VEGFR2 with IC50 of 3 nM in HUVEC cells. BFH772 inhibits the ligand induced autophosphorylation of RET, PDGFR, and KIT kinases, with IC50 values ranging between 30 and 160 nM. BFH772 is selective (IC50 values >0.5 μM) against the kinases of EGFR, ERBB2, INS-R, and IGF-1R and against the cytoplasmic BCR-ABL kinase. IC50 of BFH772 (<0.01 nM, n=2) demonstrates that they abrogated VEGF induced proliferation at remarkably low nM concentrations[1].

In Vivo

BFH772 at 3 mg/kg orally dosed once per day potently inhibits melanoma growth (by 54-90% for primary tumor and 71-96% for metastasis growth) as depicted by treatment to control ratios. Dose–response curves of BFH772 at 0.3, 1, and 3 mg/kg demonstrate that even at the lowest concentrations, this naphthalene-1-carboxamide inhibits VEGF induced tissue weight and TIE-2 levels but only reaches statistical significance at 1 mg/kg and above[1].

Kinase Assay

In vitro kinase assay is based on a filter binding assay, using the recombinant GST-fused kinase domains expressed in baculovirus and purified over glutathione-sepharose, γ-[33P]ATP as the phosphate donor, and poly(Glu:Tyr 4:1) peptide as the acceptor. Each GST-fused kinase is incubated under optimized buffer conditions [20 mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 7.5), 1-3 mM MnCl2, 3-10 mM MgCl2, 3-8 μg/mL poly(Glu:Tyr 4:1), 0.25 mg/mL polyethylene glycol 20000, 8 μM ATP, 10 μM sodium vanadate, 1 mM DTT] and 0.2 μCi γ-33P ATP in a total volume of 30 μL in the presence or absence of a test substance for 10 min at ambient temperature. The reaction is stopped by adding 10 mL of 250 mM EDTA. Using a 384-well filter system, half the volume is transferred onto an Immobilon-polyvinylidene difluoride membrane. The membrane is then washed extensively and dried, and scintillation counting is performed. IC50s for compounds are calculated by linear regression analysis of the percentage inhibition[1]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Cell Assay

BFH772 is dissolved in DMSO (10 mM) and stored, and then diluted with appropriate medium before use[1].

Different Ba/F3 cell lines rendered IL-3 independent by transduction with various constitutively active tyrosine kinases are grown in RPMI 1640 medium containing 10% fetal calf serum. For maintenance of parental Ba/F3 cells, the medium is additionally supplemented with 10 ng/mL interleukin-3 (IL-3). For proliferation assays, Ba/F3 cells are seeded on 96-well plates in triplicates at 10000 cells per well and incubated with various concentrations of compounds for 72 h followed by quantification of viable cells using a resazurin sodium salt dye reduction readout (commercially known as Alamar Blue assay). IC50s are determined with the XLFit Excel Add-In using a four-parameter dose response model[1]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Administration

BFH772 is prepared in PEG200 100% (Mice)[1].
BFH772 is dissolved in N-methyl pyrrolidone/polyethylene glycol200 (30:70, v/v) (Rats)[1].

Female FVB mice weighing between 18 and 20 g are housed in groups of six. Porous chambers containing VEGF (2 μg/mL) in 0.5 mL of 0.8% w/v agar (containing heparin, 20 U/mL) are implanted subcutaneously in the flank of the mice (n=6 per group). VEGF induces the growth of vascularized tissue around the chamber. This response is dose-dependent and can be quantified by measuring the weight and TIE-2 levels of the tissue. Mice are treated either orally once daily with compounds or vehicle (PEG200 100%, 5 mL/kg) starting 4-6 h before implantation of the chambers and continuing for 4 days. The animals are sacrificed for measurement of the vascularized tissues 24 h after the last dose. Tissue weight is taken and then a lysate prepared for TIE-2 ELISA analysis .
Catheters are implanted into the femoral artery and vein of naïve female rats strain OFA for BFH772, and BAW2881, or in the jugular vein and femoral artery in female Sprague-Dawley rats for compounds 4, 9, and 10. Animals are allowed to recover for 96 h and are housed in single cages with free access to food and water throughout the experiment. Female OFA rats received 2.5 mg/kg of BAW2881 dissolved in ethanol/dimethylisosorbide/polyethylene glycol400/D5W (10/15/35/40 v/v) or 1 mg/kg of BFH772 dissolved in N-methyl pyrrolidone/polyethylene glycol200 (30:70, v/v) via injection into the femoral vein. D5W is glucose 5%/water (v/v). Oral administration: BAW2881 and BFH772 are formulated as a micronized suspension (dissolved/suspended in 0.5% carboxymethyl cellulose in distilled water) and administered by gavage to female OFA rats to deliver a dose of 25 mg/kg for BAW2881 or 3 mg/kg BFH772 (n=4 rats per group). For compounds 4, 9, and 10, female Sprague-Dawley rats at 8 weeks of age received an intravenous dose of 3 mg/kg 4, 9, and 10, formulated in ethanol/NMP/polyethylene glycol400/D5W (10/10/50/30) (n=2 rats per group), or a suspension in 0.5% carboxymethyl cellulose in distilled water dosed at 50 mg/kg (n=3 rats per group). At the allotted times, blood samples are collected into heparinized tubes, and the amount of compound in plasma determined by HPLC/MS-MS. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
