Refametinib, also known as RDEA119, BAY 86-9766, is an orally bioavailable selective MEK inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity. MEK inhibitor RDEA119 specifically inhibits mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1 (MAP2K1 or MAPK/ERK kinase 1), resulting in inhibition of growth factor-mediated cell signaling and tumor cell proliferation. MEK, a dual specificity threonine/tyrosine kinase, is a key component of the RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK signaling pathway that regulates cell growth; constitutive activation of this pathway has been implicated in many cancers.

How to use

In Vitro:

Refametinib is selectively bound directly to an allosteric pocket in the MEK1/2 enzymes, and highly efficacious at inhibiting cell proliferation in several tumor cell lines, including A375, SK-MEI-28, Colo205, HT-29 and BxPC3. RDEA119 inhibits anchorage-dependent growth of human cancer cell lines harboring the gain-of-function V600E BRAF mutant with GI50 values ranging from 67 to 89 nM. Under anchorage-independent conditions, GI50 values for all cell lines tested are similar (40-84 nM). RDEA119 shows a tissue selectivity that reduces its potential for central nervous system–related side effects. RDEA119 potently inhibits the proliferation of the 4 cell lines that harbored BRAF mutation but has no or modest effects on the other 4 cells that harbored wild-type BRAF (IC50 of 0.034-0.217 μM vs. 1.413-34.120 μM). This inhibitory effect of RDEA119 in selected cell lines OCUT1 (BRAF V600E(+), PIK3CA H1047R(+)) and SW1376 (BRAF V600E(+)) is enhanced by combination with the mTOR inhibitor, temsirolimus. RDEA119 and temsirolimus also show synergistic effects on autophagic death of OCUT1 and KAT18 cells selectively tested.

In Vivo:

Oral administration of RDEA119 at 50 mg/kg on a once daily × 14 schedule leads to a 68% tumor growth inhibition (TGI) in human melanoma A375 tumor model. Oral administration of RDEA119 at 25 mg/kg on a once a once daily × 14 schedule leads to a 123% TGI in human colon carcinoma Colo205 tumor model (TGI > 100% occurs when the tumor shrinks below its starting volume). A dose of 25 mg/kg once daily × 14 produces 56% and 67% TGI for HT-29 and A431 tumors, respectively.
