PKMYT1, together with WEE1, make up the WEE family of serine/threonine kinases, which have been implicated in the progression of several cancers, especially solid tumors. At least 4 WEE1 inhibitors have entered clinical development; notable among them is Zentalis’ ZN-c3, which we previously featured, and AstraZeneca’s adavosertib (AZD1775; formerly MK1775), which is the leading candidate and has been evaluated in >60 trials. AstraZeneca recently pulled the plug on adavosertib, likely due to bone marrow and gut-related toxicities, raising questions on whether the other WEE1 inhibitors may meet a similar fate.
