New Substance with Powerful Antitumor Effect Synthesized in Russia


Scientists of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) have achieved a new substance with antitumor properties. The results of the research were published in the scientific journal Tetrahedron Letters.


Experts have synthesized a new substance from fascaplyzine, a biologically active pigment found in sea sponges inhabiting the Pacific and Indian Oceans.


Tests have shown that the new derivative is superior to fascaplyzine in its curative effect. 


"We have achieved a new derivative of fascaplyzine, tested it on cervical cancer cells and monocytic leukaemia. The results showed 2-3 times higher activity compared to the original fascaplyzine,” - press release quotes Maxim Zhidkov, associate professor of the Organic Chemistry Department of the FEFU.
