Aurora kinase A (AURKA;
In vitro and mouse studies suggest furanopyrimidine-based
dual AURKA and AURKB inhibitors could help treat cancer. In in vitro
assays, the lead furanopyrimidine selectively inhibited AURKA and AURKB at
nanomolar IC50 values. In a mouse xenograft model for human
colorectal cancer, the lead compound decreased tumor growth compared with
vehicle without causing toxicity. Next steps could include testing the lead
compound in animal models for other cancers.
