Full circle in this thread, MetAP-2 inhibitors back to cancer (think zfgn)......

J Med Chem. 2019 Nov 14. doi: 10.1021/acs.jmedchem.9b01070. [Epub ahead of print]

Identification of Methionine Aminopeptidase-2 (MetAP-2) inhibitor M8891, a Clinical Compound for the Treatment of Cancer.

The recently disclosed next generation of reversible, selective and potent MetAP-2 inhibitors introduced a cyclic tartronic diamide scaffold. However, the lead compound 1a suffered from enterohepatic circulation preventing further development. Nevertheless, 1a was used as starting point for further optimization. Maintaining potent anti-proliferation activity while improving other compound properties enabled the generation of an attractive array of new MetAP-2 inhibitors. Identification of the most promising derivatives was driven by a multiparameter analysis of the compound properties. High affinity, long residence time, high permeability and low efflux ratio not only in Caco-2 but also in the MDR-MDCK cell line was key for selection of candidates for in vivo efficacy evaluations. Orally bioavailable, potent, and reversible MetAP-2 inhibitors impede growth of primary endothelial cells and demonstrated antitumoral activity in mouse models. This assessment led to nomination of the clinical development compound M8891 which is currently in Phase I clinical testing in oncology patients.

and here's the phase I trial.......
