Preclinical assessment of the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of GDC-0449 (2-chloro-N-(4-chloro-3-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl)-4-(methylsulfonyl)benzamide), an orally bioavailable systemic Hedgehog signalling pathway inhibitor.

GDC-0449 (2-chloro-N-(4-chloro-3-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl)-4-(methylsulfonyl)benzamide) is a potent, selective Hedgehog (Hh) signalling pathway inhibitor being developed for the treatment of various cancers. The in vivo clearance of GDC-0449 was estimated to be 23.0, 4.65, 0.338, and 19.3 ml min-1 kg-1 in mouse, rat, dog and monkeys, respectively. The volume of distribution ranged from 0.490 in rats to 1.68 […]
