Anavex 7-1037 reduces rate of cancer tumor growth 69% in pre-clinical studies, compared to currently marketed drug Dacarbazine showing no measurable activity
Date:3/10/2008

gy (i.e. screening of potential candidate compounds for toxicity and efficacy using various cancer cell cultures) has suggested would respond better to the agent.

ANAVEX 7-1037 has been previously reported to exhibit high affinity for sigma-1 (nanomolar) receptors and moderate (micromolar) affinity for sigma-2 receptors and sodium channels. In addition, ANAVEX 7-1037 has been shown to induce selective apoptosis (programmed cell death) in HCT116 colon cancer cells in vitro, as detailed in a press release dated December 11, 2007.

These features of ANAVEX 7-1037 have made it one of the company's lead compounds in its efforts to develop pioneering, new anti-cancer drugs for the treatment of solid tumors. ANAVEX 7-1037 has so far been tested in vitro against more than 20 human cancer cell lines representing different types of cancer - it has demonstrated significant in vitro tumor-growth-delaying activity against most of them, as represented by the GI50 (i.e. 50% of the dose required for tumor growth inhibition) of the compound. As such, ANAVEX 7-1037 has been advanced for testing against additional xenografts in order to further establish and confirm its potential as a potent anti-cancer drug.

ANAVEX 7-1037 is being studied for activity against a rare type of melanoma called clear cell sarcoma. Tests are performed by ANAVEX on xenografts developed directly from a sample that was surgically removed from a patient (primary/patient-derived xenografts) suffering from the disease. The patient had been treated with Dacarbazine. This study was implemented as a first step in ANAVEX's efforts to test the activity of the compound against melanoma, as the in-vitro results suggested that the compound may be selective against certain cancer types (such as melanoma, colon, breast and prostate).
