Abstract

Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases (PI3Ks) are a family of lipid kinases that phosphorylate the 3-OH of the inositol ring of phosphoinositides, and deregulation of this pathway has implications in many diseases. The search for novel PI3K inhibitors has been at the forefront of academic and industrial medicinal chemistry with over 600 medicinal chemistry-based publications and patents appearing to date, leading to 38 clinical candidates and the launch of two drugs, idelalisib in 2014 and copanlisib in 2017. This Perspective will discuss medicinal chemistry design approaches to novel isoform-selective inhibitors through consideration of brief case histories of compounds that have progressed into clinical development or that have revealed new structural motifs in this highly competitive area of research.
