Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk or BTK) is a kinase that plays a crucial role in B-cell development. BTK plays a crucial role in B cell maturation as well as mast cell activation through the high-affinity IgE receptor. BTK has emerged as a promising drug target for multiple diseases, particularly haematopoietic malignancies and autoimmune diseases related to B lymphocytes. Considerable progress has been made in the development of irreversible inhibitors, most of which target the SH3 pocket and the cysteine 481 residue of BTK.

Ibrutinib, a first-in-class BTK inhibitor, has demonstrated high response rates in both relapsed/refractory and treatment naïve chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). However, scientists identified a structurally novel mutation (BTKT316A) in the SH2 domain, but not kinase domain, of Bruton tyrosine kinase which was associated with disease relapse.

Acalabrutinib (ACP-196) demonstrated higher biochemical and cellular selectivity than ibrutinib and spebrutinib. Acalabrutinib is a BTK inhibitor with key pharmacologic differentiators versus ibrutinib and spebrutinib and is currently being evaluated in clinical trials. More BTK inhibitors (GDC-0834, CGI-560, CGI-1746, HM-71224, CC-292, and ONO-4059, CNX-774, LFM-A13) are under inverstigation in the treatment of B-cell malignancies and autoimmune disorders.

ARQ-531 (ARQ531) is a potent, reversible, orally available inhibitor of both wild type and C481S-mutant BTK kinase with IC50 of 0.85 and 0.39 nM, respectively; also ptently inhibits 45 kinases with >50% inhibition at 200 nM (TEC, BMX, LCK, TRK family kinases etc.); does not require the C481S residue to bind to BTK, inhibits CD69 expression on CD20+ B-cells with IC50 of 42 nM (Ibrutinib, IC50=3 nM); ARQ-531 inhibits proliferation of malignant cells both sensitive and resistant to ibrutinib (SUDHL6 Cell GI50=80 nM), ARQ 531 is superior to Ibrutinib in a TCL1 highly predictive adoptive transfer model of CLL.

(S)-Zanubrutinib (BGB3111) is a potent, selective and orally available Btk inhibitor; shows much more restricted off-target activities against a panel of kinases, including ITK, compared with Ibrutinib; demonstrates nanomolar BTK inhibition activity, inhibits BCR aggregation-triggered BTK autophosphorylation, blocks downstream PLC-γ2 signaling, and potently inhibits cell proliferation in several MCL and DLBCL cell lines; demonstrates better anti-tumor activity than ibrutinib in TMD-8 subcutaneous xenograft model.




Vecabrutinib (SNS-062) is a potent, reversible, non-covalent BTK inhibitor with IC50 of 2.9 and 4.4 nM for WT BTK and C481S BTK, respectively;

Binds to Tec kinase family members BTK (Kd=0.3 nM) and ITK (Kd=2.2 nM), but not bind EGFR, active in vitro in cells with the C481S mutation;

Inhibits pBTK in human whole blood with IC50 of 50 nM, demonstrates favorable pharmacokinetic properties, shows potential for overcoming the ibrutinib resistance due to C481S mutantion in BTK.
