There is still a great demand in the clinic for the drugs which can overcome a variety of imatinib resistant ABL mutants. Starting from a type I inhibitor axitinib, which has been reported to overcome ABL-T315I mutant induced resistance, through a structure guided drug design approach and binding mode switch strategy, we have discovered a novel type II ABL inhibitor 24 (CHMFL-ABL-121), which significantly improved the inhibitory activity against ABL wt and a broad spectrum of mutants including the most prevalent imatinib-resistant gatekeeper mutant T315I. 24 exhibited IC50 values of 2 nM and 0.2 nM against purified inactive ABL wt and T315I kinase protein respectively and inhibited the proli..
