Moguntinones – a novel class of kinase inhibitors for cancer therapy

12.03.2015

Moguntinones, a class of small molecule compounds comprise 3-(indolyl)- or 3-(azaindolyl)-4-arylmaleimide derivatives with tumor and vascular targeting properties. The present invention relates to the use of Moguntinones for treatment of colorectal or gastric adenocarcinoma. Tumor growth and metastasis are highly associated with the overexpression of protein kinases. Therefore protein kinases are an interesting class of target molecules for improved therapeutic attempts. These proteins are known to regulate the majority of cellular pathways including such relevant for control cell growth, movement and death - all processes relevant for cancer growth and progression. A physiological process focused on in development of anti-cancer agents is apoptosis, a controlled form of cell death eliminating damaged, aberrant, infected, old or superfluous cells. In particular often mucosa tissue such as gastrointestinal mucosa is characterized by a rapid epithelial cell turnover in which homeostasis is maintained predominantly by apoptosis. One essential prerequisite for growth and metastasis of cancers which form tumors is angiogenesis, a process involving the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing capillary endothelial cells. Tumor cells may enhance angiogenesis by overexpression of proangiogenic factors, e.g. VEGF or interleukins. In general, this is especially pronounced with tumors having a high microvessel density as well as a particular aggressive behavior and high tendency to metastasize. Therefore, inhibitors of angiogenesis are researched as antitumor agents. [Ref. UMZ252]

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
