Oncogene Fusion Protein

A small individual group of tyrosine kinase inhibitors is specifically targeting oncogenic fusion proteins. The expression of these proteins is caused by a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes, 9 and 22 in case of the BCR-ABL fusion protein. About 95% of the patients suffering from chronic myelogenous leukaemia show expression of this particular protein, yet it is also found in two other acute forms of leukaemia[1],[2]. Our product line includes both the very first drug registered on the market inhibiting this specific tyrosine kinase (Axon 1394: STI 571 or Imatinib (Novartis)), as well as well-known follow-up inhibitors, being more potent and/or more active against the emerging Gleevec/Glivec resistant BCR-ABL clones that originate from point mutations inside the kinase domain of the Bcr-Abl protein and disrupt the binding site of Imatinib on the tyrosine kinase (e.g. Axon 1392 and Axon 1396 (Dasatinib and Nilotinib resp.)[3]
