SP1049C
DrugBank Accession Number
DB04978
Background

SP1049C is a novel anthracycline chemotherapeutic agent designed to overcome drug resistance in a number of cancers. It has successfully completed Phase 1 trials. Phase 2 results are currently under final review. Preliminary data, in its first clinically tested indication, shows that SP1049C is active in Stage IV non-resectable adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus. Median survival is encouraging and correlates strongly with dose levels.

Mechanism of action

SP1049C is a novel anticancer agent containing doxorubicin and two nonionic pluronic block copolymers. Doxorubicin has antimitotic and cytotoxic activity through a number of proposed mechanisms of action: Doxorubicin forms complexes with DNA by intercalation between base pairs, and it inhibits topoisomerase II activity by stabilizing the DNA-topoisomerase II complex, preventing the religation portion of the ligation-religation reaction that topoisomerase II catalyzes.
