Vismodegib | Sonic Hedgehog signaling pathway inhibitor

A potent and selective Hedgehog (Hh) pathway signaling inhibitor antagonizing SMO with a Ki of 1.3 nM).1 Alters intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis and inhibits growth of cisplatin-resistant lung cancer cells.2  Inhibits two ABC transporters, ABCG2/BCRP and ABCB1/Pgp, IC50s=1.4 and 3.0 mM respectively.3 Clinically useful for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma.4 Inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in colon cancer cell lines.5
Induces apoptosis in pancreatic cancer stem cells6 and medulloblastoma7 and in basal-cell carcinoma stem cells8.
