Summary of "Heterocyclic compounds and their uses: a patent evaluation of WO2010151735A2."

A series of pyrido-pyrimidin-4-ones, incorporating purine/pyrimidine scaffolds, were prepared by a succession of standard reactions and tested for the inhibition of 4 isoforms of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) class I, that is, the α, β, δ and γ PI3Ks. Compounds with activity, from the nanomolar to the micromolar, against isoform PI3Kδ were detected, and have been assayed in vivo with the human B cells proliferation assay, stimulated by anti-IgM or IL-4, showing remarkable activity. The patent claims a very promising new class of PI3Kδ inhibitors with selectivity for the δ-class enzymes, involved in a variety of diseases, such as, but not limited to, cancer, autoimmune disease and allergy. The chemotype claimed in the patent is new, and a large chemical diversity was generated by standard chemical processes. The biological activity and selectivity of these enzyme inhibitors seem to be very good.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A syndrome of persistent PULMONARY HYPERTENSION in the newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN) without demonstrable HEART DISEASES. This neonatal condition can be caused by severe pulmonary vasoconstriction (reactive type), hypertrophy of pulmonary arterial muscle (hypertrophic type), or abnormally developed pulmonary arterioles (hypoplastic type). The newborn patient exhibits CYANOSIS and ACIDOSIS due to the persistence of fetal circulatory pattern of right-to-left shunting of blood through a patent ductus arteriosus (DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS, PATENT) and at times a patent foramen ovale (FORAMEN OVALE, PATENT).
