An updated patent review of Mcl-1 inhibitors (2020-2022).
Expert opinion on therapeutic patents（2023）
Despite the great success of Mcl-1 inhibitor development, the on-target toxicity to heart indicated that the BH3 mimetic Mcl-1 inhibitors could have a limited therapeutic window.Drug combinations of Mcl-1 inhibitors with targeted therapies or chemotherapies may improve safety as they may reduce the dose of Mcl-1 inhibitors. Alternatively, some technologies like ADC and PROTACS could also be utilized to improve the therapeutic window. We envision a precision medicine platform like BH3 profiling or single-molecule pull-down and co-immunoprecipitation platform will enable the tailored use of Mcl-1 inhibitors utilizing the unique molecular information of individual patients.更多
