Product Information

Sonidegib, also known as, erismodegib, LDE225, NVP-LDE225, is an orally bioavailable small-molecule Smoothened (Smo) antagonist with potential antineoplastic activity. Erismodegib selectively binds to the Hedgehog (Hh)-ligand cell surface receptor Smo, which may result in the suppression of the Hh signaling pathway and, so, the inhibition of tumor cells in which this pathway is abnormally activated. It was approved by the FDA for treating basal cell carcinoma in July 2015.

In Vitro

The IC50 values for Sonidegib (NVP-LDE225) for the major human CYP450 drug metabolizing enzymes is greater than 10 μM. Sonidegib (LDE225), a small molecule, clinically investigated SMO inhibitor, used alone and in combination with Nilotinib, inhibits the Hh pathway in CD34+ chronic phase (CP)-chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) cells, reducing the number and self-renewal capacity of CML leukaemia stem cell (LSC). Sonidegib interacts directly with SMO, in a similar fashion to cyclopamine, to reduce expression of downstream Hh signaling targets. Primary CD34+ CP-CML cells are cultured in serum free media (SFM)±Sonidegib for 6, 24 and 72 hours (h). At 72 h, while there is variability between the biological samples, GLI1 is significantly downregulated following exposure to Sonidegib (10 nM; 0.78-fold and 100 nM; 0.73-fold, respectively (p<0.01).


In Vivo

Sonidegib (NVP-LDE225) is a weak base with a measured pKa of 4.2 and exhibits relatively poor aqueous solubility. In the subcutaneous Ptch+/-p53-/- medulloblastoma allograft mouse model, Sonidegib demonstrates dose-related antitumor activity after 10 days of oral administration of a suspension of the diphosphate salt. At a dose of 5 mg/kg/day qd, Sonidegib significantly inhibits tumor growth, corresponding to a T/C value of 33% (p<0.05 as compared to vehicle controls). When dosed at 10 and 20 mg/kg/day qd, Sonidegib affords 51 and 83% regression, respectively. Bone marrow cells and spleen cells from a subset of treated mice are transplanted into secondary recipient mice. Transplantation of either bone marrow (BM) or spleen cells from mice treated with Sonidegib (LDE225)+Nilotinib results in reduced white cell count (WCC) and reduces leukaemia development in secondary recipients compared to Sonidegib or Nilotinib alone.
