Description: Indisulam, also known as E7070, is a carbonic anhydrase inhbitor, is also a novel synthetic sulfonamide that targets the G1 phase of the cell cycle.. The potential antitumor activity of Indisulam was discovered through optimization of the structure-activity relationships of a series of sulfonamide structures. Indisulam causes a blockade in the G1/S transition through inhibition of the activation of both cyclin-dependent kinase 2 and cyclin E. Preclinical studies with Indisulam showed activity in multiple tumor types, most prominently in colon and lung cancer.

Additional Information

Phase II study of Indisulam: Forty-four patients were randomized. Only minor responses were seen. Myelosuppression, gastrointestinal symptoms, and lethargy were the most common toxicities and were more frequent in the dx1 arm. The pharmacokinetics of indisulam in each treatment schedule were adequately described using a previously developed population pharmacokinetic model and were mostly consistent with the results of the phase I program. Flow cytometric analysis of endobronchial and metastatic disease revealed a reduction in the fraction of cycling cells and an increase in apoptosis following indisulam compared with pretreatment levels. CONCLUSIONS: Despite evidence of tumor-specific indisulam-induced apoptosis, neither of these treatment schedules has single-agent activity as second-line treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.

Nano-encapsulated indisulam: This study aimed to begin development of a nanomedicine containing indisulam solubilized in sterically stabilized micelles (SSMs) composed of DSPE-PEG(2000) or sterically stabilized mixed micelles (SSMMs) composed of DSPE-PEG(2000) plus egg phosphatidylcholine. Micelles were prepared by co-precipitation and reconstitution of drug and lipids. Particle size distributions of micellar formulations were determined by quasi-elastic light scattering. Amounts of solubilized drug were determined by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC). In vitro cytotoxicity of indisulam in nanocarrier was determined on the MCF-7 cell line by the National Cancer Institute-developed sulforhodamine B assay. Optimal solubilized indisulam concentrations in 5 mM total lipid were 10 microg/mL for SSMMs and 400 microg/mL for SSMs. HPLC results demonstrated that the encapsulation capacity of both micelles was over 95%. In vitro studies showed that indisulam in micellar system was more effective than free indisulam . The optimized formulation was successfully freeze-dried without any addition of lyoprotectants or cryoprotectants. We conclude that SSMs are a promising nanocarrier for indisulam , and indisulam -SSMs should be developed further as a novel targeted nanomedicine. (source: Nanomedicine. 2009 Jun;5(2):178-83.)
