A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230234958A1) describes a compound of Formula X and its various forms and compositions for the treatment of SHP2-mediated diseases or disorders. The compound, along with its pharmaceutically acceptable salts, is claimed to have therapeutic potential in conditions such as chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, squamous-cell carcinoma of the head and neck, ovarian cancer, Noonan syndrome, juvenile leukemia, and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia.

The patent claims specify different formulas and structures for the compound, including the formation of carbocyclic fused rings or heterocyclic fused rings with heteroatoms such as nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. The compound can also have various substituents, such as aliphatic groups, phenyl groups, monocyclic heteroaryl rings, bicyclic heteroaryl rings, saturated or partially unsaturated carbocyclic rings, and monocyclic heterocyclic rings.

The patent also covers pharmaceutical compositions comprising the compound and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. These compositions can be used for the treatment of SHP2-mediated diseases or disorders. Additionally, a method of treating these conditions is described, involving the administration of a therapeutically effective amount of the compound or its pharmaceutically acceptable salt to a subject in need.

Specifically, the patent highlights the potential use of the compound in treating breast cancer, including HER2-positive breast cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, ductal carcinoma, and invasive ductal carcinoma. The compound may offer a new therapeutic approach for these subtypes of breast cancer, which are known to be challenging to treat.

It is important to note that the information provided is based solely on the claims made in the patent filing and does not include any additional data or research findings. Further studies and clinical trials would be necessary to determine the efficacy and safety of the compound in treating SHP2-mediated diseases or disorders, including breast cancer.
