J Pharmacol Exp Ther 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, Dept. of Ophthalmology, University of California, Irvine, United States

CB-5083 is an inhibitor of p97/valosin-containing protein (VCP), for which Phase I trials for cancer were terminated due to adverse effects on vision, such as photophobia and dyschromatopsia. Lower dose CB-5083 could combat inclusion body myopathy with early-onset Paget disease; and frontotemporal dementia or multisystem proteinopathy, caused by gain-of-function mutations in VCP. We hypothesized that the visual impairment in the cancer trial was due to CB-5083's inhibition of phosphodiesterase-6 (PDE6), which mediates signal transduction in photoreceptors. Read More
