Human phosphatidyl inositol mannoside kinases (Pim kinases) are important biological target for discovery of new anticancer agents. In addition, Pyrimidines have a good contribution as building blocks of many anticancer agents. Hence, a literature survey about Pim kinases inhibitors and pyrimidine-based anticancer agents have been achieved. In this survey, we introduced Pim kinase inhibitors under clinical assessment including imidazo[1,2-b]pyridazines, isatins, thiazolidine-2,4-diones, pyridinamines, and diaminopyrazoles. In addition, Pim kinase inhibitors under development were presented. These compounds include pyridine-quinolines, benzimidazoles indoles, cyano pyridines, pyridothieno[3,2-d]pyrimidin-4-ones, oxadiazole, and 3,4-dihydropyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrazin-1(2H)-ones. Furthermore, different pyrimidine-based anticancer agents have been discussed.
