Antitumor and immunosuppressive activities of lankacidin-group antibiotics: structure-activity relationships

Cancer Chemotherapy Reports. Part 1
K OostuT Kishi


The antitumor and immunosuppressive activities of the lankacidin-group antibiotics were studied in mice. Seventeen of 29 newly prepared lankacidin-group antibiotics, including 14-derivatives of lankacidin C, lankacidinol, isolankacidinol, and lankacidinol 14-acetate, possessed considerable antitumor activity against ascites 6C3HED/OG lymphosarcoma. Comparative studies on the antitumor activity of lankacidin C and eight of its derivatives against L1210 leukemia and solid 6C3HED/OG lymphosarcoma demonstrated that replacement of the hydroxyl group at position 8 or 14 of lankacidin C by an acyloxy group potentiated antitumor activity. However, these modifications of lankacidin C resulted in reduction of the immunosuppressive activity.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

B-Cell Lymphoma

B-cell lymphomas include lymphomas that affect B cells. This subtype of cancer accounts for over 80% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the US. Here is the latest research.
