Quinazoline derivatives as anticancer drugs: a patent review (2011-present)


Introduction: Quinazoline is one of the most studied moieties in medicinal chemistry due to the wide range of biological properties such as the anticancer, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimalarial and antihypertensive activities. During the past decades, several patents and articles have been published in international peer-reviewed literature regarding the discovery and development of original and promising quinazoline derivatives for cancer treatment. Although quinazolines are well known to inhibit EGFR, there is also a large panel of other therapeutic protein targets. Areas covered: This review summarized the new patents and articles published about quinazoline derivatives as anticancer drugs since 2011. Expert opinion: Since 2011, a lot of quinazoline compounds have shown EGFR inhibition. Unlike the first-generation EGFR inhibitors, they inhibit both wild-type and mutated EGFR. In recent years, a number of studies on quinazoline synthesis have been reported and used by several medicinal chemistry groups for better and easier development of new derivatives. Therefore, several patents have been approved for the use of quinazoline compounds as inhibitors of other kinases, histone deacetylase, Nox and some metabolic pathways. Because of the large number of proteins targeted, some high structural diversity is observed in patented quinazoline compounds. Due to the vast applications of quinazoline derivatives, development of novel quinazoline compounds as anticancer drugs remains a promising field.
