PRN1008 is a highly potent and selective inhibitor of Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK), an enzyme that plays a major role in the signaling pathway running downstream from B cells to the B-cell receptors found on most white blood cells with the exception of T cells and plasma cells.
B-cells recognize solvent-exposed antigens through antigen receptors, named as B-cell receptors (BCR), consisting of membrane-bound immunoglobulins, as shown in Figure 1.
The intricate enzymatic machinery needed for the recombination of T-cell and B-cell receptors is the basis of adaptive immunity and major mutations in associated genes like RAG and Artemis invariably lead to severe combined immunodeficiency with no or very limited expression of T-cells and B-cells (T-B-SCID) [1,2].
