Bromodomain and extraterminal domain (BET) proteins are identified as epigenetic readers and can be characterized by the presence of two tandem bromodomains (BD1 and BD2), extraterminal domain (ET), and a C-terminal domain (CTD). These proteins bind with chromatin and play a key role in transcription. The BET family consists of BRD2, BRD3, BRD4, and BRDT; of which, BRD2, BRD3, and BRD4 are expressed in all the tissues, while BRDT is expressed only in testes. The BET proteins have transcriptional activity and hence are actively involved in carcinogenesis.

Moreover, BET inhibitors are small molecules that are assumed to bind to the MYC gene, which is the most favorable target for cancer therapeutics. The BET inhibitors bind to acetylated lysine motifs and prevent the interaction between acetylated lysine and BET proteins. This interrupts the gene expression and chromatin remodeling, thereby reducing the growth of tumor cells.

BET Inhibitors Pipeline Analysis

Therefore, drug manufacturers are constantly working in the direction to obtain new treatment strategies by targeting BET proteins. Various companies are developing drug candidates using different technologies for the development of effective and better drugs. However, at present, no drug has been approved that targets BET proteins.

Positive clinical trial results and strategic advancements are expected to drive the BET inhibitors pipeline. Moreover, the issuance of patents helps in achieving different milestones in the form of grants and designations from regulatory bodies and institutes, including the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Pipeline Analysis

As of 2019, the BET inhibitors pipeline comprised 30+ drugs in different stages of development.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the companies involved in the development of BET inhibitors include Constellation Pharmaceuticals Inc., Resverlogix Corp., GlaxoSmithKline plc, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Co. Ltd., and FORMA Therapeutics Inc.
