    About Trabectedin

    Trabectedin is a novel cytotoxic antitumor agent that was originally derived from the Caribbean tunicate, Ecteinascidia turbinate ("sea squirt"). The compound is now produced synthetically. Trabectedin binds to the minor groove of DNA, interfering with cell division and genetic transcription processes and DNA repair machinery. Trabectedin is currently in Phase III development in ovarian cancer and to expand its uses in sarcoma.

    According to the licensing agreement, PharmaMar has rights to market the compound in Europe and Japan, while Ortho Biotech Products, L.P. has marketing rights for the product in the rest of the world.
