Development of artemisinin compounds for cancer treatment.

Author's information - Abstract

Artemisinin contains an endoperoxide moiety that can react with iron to
form cytotoxic free radicals. Cancer cells contain significantly more intracellular
free iron than normal cells and it has been shown that artemisinin and its analogs
selectively cause apoptosis in many cancer cell lines. In addition, artemisinin
compounds have been shown to have anti-angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-metastasis
and growth inhibition effects. These properties make artemisinin compounds attractive
cancer chemotherapeutic drug candidates. However, simple artemisinin analogs are
less potent than traditional cancer chemotherapeutic agents and have short plasma
half-lives, and would require high dosage and frequent administration to be effective
for cancer treatment. More potent and target-selective artemisinin-compounds are being
developed. These include artemisinin dimers and trimers, artemisinin hybrid compounds
and tagging of artemisinin compounds to molecules that are involved in the intracellular
iron-delivery mechanism. These compounds are promising potent anticancer compounds
that produce significantly less side effect than traditional chemotherapeutic agents.
