BLU-9931 is a potent and irreversible small-molecule inhibitor of FGFR4, as a targeted therapy to treat patients with HCC whose tumors have an activated FGFR4 signaling pathway. BLU-9931 is exquisitely selective for FGFR4 versus other FGFR family members and all other kinases. BLU-9931 shows remarkable antitumor activity in mice bearing an HCC tumor xenograft that overexpresses FGF19 due to amplification as well as a liver tumor xenograft that overexpresses FGF19 mRNA but lacks FGF19 amplification. Approximately one third of patients with HCC whose tumors express FGF19 together with FGFR4 and its coreceptor klotho β (KLB) could potentially respond to treatment with an FGFR4 inhibitor.

How to use
BLU-9931 inhibits proliferation of HCC cell lines that express an intact FGFR4 signaling complex, with EC50s of 0.07 μM, 0.11 μM and 0.02 μM for Hep 3B, HuH7 and JHH7 cells, respectively. BLU-9931 (0.3-300 nM; 1 hour; MDA-MB-453 and Hep 3B cells) treatment demonstrates potent, dose-dependent reduction of phosphorylation of FGFR4 signaling pathway components, including fibroblast growth factor receptor substrate 2 (FRS2), MAPK, and AKT in MDA-MB-453 cells. BLU-9931 shows dose-dependent inhibition of the signaling cascade downstream of FGFR4. BLU-9931 exhibits potent inhibition of phosphorylation of the FGFR4 pathway components in Hep 3B cells. BLU-9931 treatment leads to induction of caspase-3/7 activity, indicative of induction of apoptosis that results in inhibition of signaling downstream of FGFR4. BLU-9931 (100 nM; 0 -24 hours; Hep 3B cells) treatment increases CYP7A1 mRNA expression and the expression of the proliferative marker EGR1 is inhibited.
BLU-9931 (10-100 mg/kg; oral administration; twice every day; for 21 days; mice) treatment demonstrates antitumor activity in HCC xenograft models.
