DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
VEGFR inhibitors are a group of structurally different drugs, targeted tumor therapeutics that bind to one of the receptors of the growth factor VEGF (VEFG-R) and thereby inhibit angiogenesis. EGFR inhibitors are widely used for the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma, gastrointestinal stromal tumors and hepatocellular carcinoma. They are also used for the treatment of colon cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, medulloblastoma, glioblastoma and various other cancers. Sarcomas and others
VEGFR inhibitors have the same mode of action as VEGF inhibitors. They inhibit the signalling cascade induced via the VEGF receptor. Sometimes the terms are also used synonymously in clinical language. VEGF inhibitors, however, bind to ligands of the receptor, to the signal molecule VEGF, VEGFR inhibitors, on the other hand, enter into a direct connection with the extracellular domain of the receptor so that the ligand cannot dock.
Another group that inhibits the activity of VEGF-R are substances that inhibit the activity of the receptor by binding in close proximity to the ATP binding site of the kinase, thus inhibiting the important step ATP binding.
ClassificationThis section has been translated automatically.
The VEGF receptor family contains three subtypes, which are all receptor tyrosine kinases (VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2 and VEGFR-3):
- VEGFR-1 (Flt-1 = fms-like tyrosine kinase): VEGFR-1 is a regulator of endothelial cell responses such as migration and invasion. There is also a non membrane-bound, soluble form (sFlt1).
- VEGFR-2 (KDRor FLK-1 =fetal liver kinase): VEGFR-2 is a glycoprotein with 210-230 kDa which is expressed in vascular endothelial cells and in hematopoietic stem cells and binds VEGF-A. VEGF-2 is a highly active kinase and is responsible for almost all cellular responses to VEGF. Autophosphorylated VEGFR-2 controls angiogenesis and vasculogenesis in the human body. VEGFR-2 is closely related to VEGFR-1 because they share common specific ligands. VEGFR-2 is overexpressed in several tumour types, including ovarian and thyroid cancer, melanoma, medulloblastoma and glioblastoma (Musumeci F et al. 2012; Pham K et al. 2015).
- VEGFR-3 (Flt-4 = fms-like tyrosine kinase): regulates lymphangiogenesis in response to VEGF-C and VEGF-D. Unlike VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2, VEGF-A is not an active ligand of VEGFR-3.
The binding of VEGF ligands to a VEGF receptor leads to a conformational change, dimerization of the receptor. This releases an ATP binding site , allowing ATP to bind to the intracellular domain of the receptor. This intracellular domain consists of the tyrosine kinase domain, which is divided into a proximal and a distal kinase domain and a C-terminal tail. Binding to the receptor triggers transphosphorylation of the intracellular tyrosine residues of the dimerized receptors. The activation of transcription factors influences proliferation, migration of endothelial cells and thus vasculogenesis.

Pharmacodynamics (Effect)This section has been translated automatically.
VEGF inhibitors block the VEGF receptor so that the VEGF effect at the receptor is cancelled. The intracellular signalling cascade activated via the receptor is blocked. This results in an inhibition of angiogenesis. The latter is essential for the growth of tumours, but also for proliferative physiological or pathological vascular processes (e.g. wound healing, e.g. wet macular degeneration). The antineoplastic effect therefore does not affect the tumor cells themselves, but the vascular supply of the tumor parenchyma. If the blood supply of the tumour is no longer sufficient, a regression of the tumour parenchyma occurs (Madu CO et al. 2020).
Small molecule inhibitors of angiogenesis so-called "small molecules" are active in a variety of malignancies and fill a unique niche for cancer therapeutics (Ivy SP et al. 2009). These include the drugsatalanib, sunitinib, sorafenib, and vandetanib. Small molecules bind to the intracellular part of a receptor tyrosine kinase or a non-receptor tyrosine kinase (kinase domain) and block phyophorylation and activation by ATP. However, some of these chemicals block not only VEGF receptor tyrosine kinase but also serine threonine kinases (e.g. sunitinib), and are then called multi-kinase inhibitors. Aspects of radiosynthesis as well as the radiopharmacological oncological use of "small molecules" extend the additional armamentarium of this substance group (Kniess T 2012).
Others: Thalidomide and its derivatives lenalidomide and pomalidomide (approved for multiple myeloma therapy) have antineoplastic effects by inhibiting cell adhesion molecules, but also block angiogenesis by interference with interleukin-6 (Il-6) and by immunomodulation by controlling the cytotoxicity of NK and killer cells.
