  • PubMed Abstract: 

    The PD-1/PD-L1 axis has proven to be a highly efficacious target for cancer immune checkpoint therapy with several approved antibodies. Also, small molecules based on a biphenyl core can antagonize PD-1/PD-L1, leading to the in vitro formation of PD-L1 dimers. However, their development remains challenging, as we do not yet fully understand their mode of action. In this work, we designed a new scaffold based on our previously solved high-resolution structures of low-molecular-weight inhibitors bound to PD-L1. A small compound library was synthesized using the Groebke-Blackburn-Bienaymé multicomponent reaction (GBB-3CR), resulting in the structure-activity relationship of imidazo[1,2- a ]pyridine-based inhibitors. These inhibitors were tested for their biological activity using various biophysical assays giving potent candidates with low-micromolar PD-L1 affinities. An obtained PD-L1 cocrystal structure reveals the binding to PD-L1. Our results open the door to an interesting bioactive scaffold that could lead to a new class of PD-L1 antagonists.
