Abstract # 9075, 8 a.m. to noon on Monday, June 1, 2009
Antiparasitic drug is promising in animal studies of metastatic melanoma

Seth J. Orlow, M.D., Ph.D., the Samuel Weinberg Professor of Pediatric Dermatology and chairman of the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology and professor of cell biology and pediatrics.

A drug used to treat parasitic infections shows early promise in animal studies as a potential treatment for metastatic melanoma. Researchers from NYU Langone Medical Center report that the orally administered drug, mebendazole, inhibited the growth and progression of human melanoma tumors grafted in mice. The researchers observed in the animals a 72 percent reduction in tumor volume, the inactivation of a key protein that normally promotes melanoma survival and a concomitant 81 percent increase in cancer cells that were programmed to die. The researchers are now planning a clinical trial to investigate the appropriate dosing of the drug, a first step toward assessing the drug's effectiveness in patients with metastatic melanoma.
