ETC-159, also known as ETC-1922159, is a potent, selective and orally available PORCN inhibitor. ETC-159 blocks the secretion and activity of all Wnts. ETC-159 is remarkably effective in treating RSPO-translocation bearing colorectal cancer (CRC) patient-derived xenografts. Inhibition of Wnt signaling by PORCN inhibition holds promise as differentiation therapy in genetically defined human cancers. Enhanced sensitivity to Wnts is an emerging hallmark of a subset of cancers, defined in part by mutations regulating the abundance of their receptors.

ETC-159 blocks the secretion and activity of all Wnts. ETC-159 has robust activity in multiple cancer models driven by high Wnt signaling. ETC-159 is highly efficacious in molecularly defined colorectal cancers (CRCs) with R-spondin translocations.
ETC-159 inhibits mouse PORCN with an IC50 of 18.1 nM, whereas the IC50 for Xenopus Porcn is approximately four fold higher (70 nM). ETC-159 is remarkably effective in treating RSPO-translocation bearing colorectal cancer (CRC) patient-derived xenografts. ETC-159 exhibits good oral pharmacokinetics in mice allowing preclinical evaluation via oral administration. After a single oral dose of 5 mg/kg, ETC-159 is rapidly absorbed into the blood with a Tmax of ~0.5 h and oral bioavailability of 100%.
