Description: Sabarubicin, also known as BMS195615 and MEN10755, is a disaccharide analogue of the anthracycline antineoplastic antibiotic doxorubicin. Sabarubicin intercalates into DNA and interacts with topoisomerase II, thereby inhibiting DNA replication and repair and RNA and protein synthesis. This agent also induces apoptosis through a p53-independent mechanism. Sabarubicin is less cardiotoxic than doxorubicin.

Additional Information

Sabarubicin (MEN-10755), a disaccharide analog of doxorubicin, is used for the treatment of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). It has been seen to show superior antitumour efficacy, which is purported to be linked to the activation of p53-independent apoptosis.
