AZD8055 is a novel ATP-competitive mTOR inhibitor with IC50 of 0.8 nM with excellent selectivity (~1,000-fold) against PI3K isoforms and ATM/DNA-PK.

in vitro: AZD8055 shows low activity (~1,000-fold) against all PI3K isoforms (α, β, γ, δ) and other members of the PI3K-like kinase family (ATM and DNA-PK). AZD8055 inhibits the phosphorylation of mTORC1 (p70S6K and 4E-BP1) as well as phosphorylation of the mTORC2 (Akt) and downstream proteins. The rapamycin-resistant T37/46 phosphorylation sites on 4E-BP1 can be fully inhibited by AZD8055, resulting in significant inhibition of cap-dependent translation. AZD8055 potently inhibits proliferation in U87MG, A549 and H838 cells with IC50 of 53, 50 and 20 nM, respectively. AZD8055 also induces autophagy and increased LC3-II levels in H838 and A549 cells . AZD8055 decreases AML blast cell proliferation and cell cycle progression, reduces the clonogenic growth of leukemic progenitors and induces caspase-dependent apoptosis in leukemic cells but not in normal immature CD34+ cells. 

in vivo: AZD8055 inhibits the pS6 and pAkt in U87MG and A549 xenografts at 2.5/10 mg/kg, which leads to tumor growth inhibition. AZD8055 shows significant antitumor activity in many xenografts, including U87MG, BT474c, A549, Calu-3, LoVo, SW620, PC3 and MES-SA at a dose of 10/20 mg/kg . AZD8055 induces ~40% reduction in tumour volume, accompanied by ablation of phosphorylation of Akt, S6K and SGK protein kinases. Administration of AZD8055 (5mg/kg, Bid) and SAHA (100 mg/kg/d) results in complete tumor growth inhibition in PTEN+/LKB1+/hypo xenografts without side effects on mice by inhibition of mTORC1 and mTORC2 signaling.

Abstract: Aberrant activation of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) plays pivotal roles in promoting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumorigenesis and chemoresistance. Here, we tested the potential anti-HCC activity by a novel mTOR complex 1/2 (mTORC1/2) dual inhibitor AZD-8055 and, more importantly, the potential AZD-8055 sensitization effect by a cell-permeable short-chain ceramide (C6). We showed that AZD-8055 mainly exerted moderate cytotoxic effect against a panel of HCC cell lines (HepG2, Hep3B, and SMMC-7721). Co-treatment of C6 ceramide remarkably augmented AZD-8055-induced HCC cytotoxicity. Meanwhile, C6 ceramide dramatically potentiated AZD-8055-induced HCC cell apoptotic death. Further studies demonstrated that AZD-8055 and C6 ceramide synergistically induced anti-survival and pro-apoptotic activity in primary cultured human HCC cells, but not in the non-cancerous human hepatocytes. Signaling studies showed that AZD-8055 and C6 ceramide synergistically suppressed Akt-mTOR complex 1/2 cascade activation. In vivo, AZD-8055 oral administration suppressed HepG2 hepatoma xenograft growth in nude mice, while moderately improving mice survival. Its anti-tumor activity was dramatically potentiated with co-administration of a liposome-packed C6 ceramide. Together, these results demonstrate that concurrent targeting mTORC1/2 by AZD-8055 exerts anti-tumor ability in preclinical HCC models, and its activity is further sensitized with co-administration of C6 ceramide.
