Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to determine if rescinnamine is effective against prostate cancer and treatment resistance. We found that rescinnamine is less effective against prostate cancer that against cancers from other organs. In organisms, the concentration that would effectively cause tumor growth inhibition is limited by its hypotensive activity. We are currently exploring rescinnamine derivatives that have decreased hypotensive activity, and increased tumor growth inhibition.
