AZD1152 is a dihydrogen phosphate prodrug of a pyrazoloquinazoline Aurora kinase inhibitor [AZD1152�Chydroxyquinazoline pyrazol anilide (HQPA)] and is converted rapidly to the active AZD1152-HQPA in plasma . AZD1152-HQPA is a highly potent and selective inhibitor of Aurora B (Ki, 0.36 nM) compared with Aurora A (Ki, 1,369 nM) and has a high specificity versus a panel of 50 other kinases. Consistent with inhibition of Aurora B kinase, addition of AZD1152-HQPA to tumor cells in vitro induces chromosome misalignment, prevents cell division, and consequently reduces cell viability and induces apoptosis.
