The recent launch onto the market of five VEGFR inhibitors indicates the therapeutic value of these agents and the importance of the research in the field of angiogenesis inhibitors for future oncologic therapy. In this perspective we briefly report the inhibitors which are in clinical use, while we dedicate two wider sections to the compounds which are in clinical trials and to the new derivatives appearing in the literature. We especially consider the medicinal chemistry aspect of the topic, report the structure-activity relationship studies and the binding mode of some inhibitors as well as the biological data of the compounds discovered in the past five years.

Abstract

The recent launch onto the market of five VEGFR inhibitors indicates the therapeutic value of these agents and the importance of the research in the field of angiogenesis inhibitors for future oncologic therapy. In this perspective we briefly report the inhibitors which are in clinical use, while we dedicate two wider sections to the compounds which are in clinical trials and to the new derivatives appearing in the literature. We especially consider the medicinal chemistry aspect of the topic, report the structure-activity relationship studies and the binding mode of some inhibitors as well as the biological data of the compounds discovered in the past five years.
