Herein we report the optimization of a series of pyrrolopyrimidine inhibitors of interleukin-1 receptor associated kinase 4 (IRAK4) using X-ray crystal structures and structure based design to identify and optimize our scaffold. Compound 28 demonstrated a favorable physicochemical and kinase selectivity profile and was identified as a promising in vivo tool with which to explore the role of IRAK4 inhibition in the treatment of mutant MYD88L265P diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Compound 28 was shown to be capable of demonstrating inhibition of NF-κB activation and growth of the ABC subtype of DLBCL cell lines in vitro at high concentrations but showed greater effects in combination with a BTK inhibitor at lower concentrations. In vivo, the combination of compound 28 and ibrutinib led to tumor regression in an ABC-DLBCL mouse model.
