Abstract

The presentation will regard the efforts of the last years in the fields of the synthesis of anticancer compounds. Two different approaches will be discussed. The first one is based on the use of anticancer natural products as building blocks or as lead compounds.1 Chemical modifications permits the generation of small libraries of new compounds with the aim to find new biological activity, to improve the delivery and to help the understanding of the biological mechanisms.2 For what regards the delivery, preliminary results in the field of the nanoassemblies will be discussed.3 The second approach regards the de novo synthesis of new compounds on the base of isosteric substitutions and scaffold decoration of known totally synthetic anticancer compounds guided by modeling studies.4 The considered biological targets include: Tubulin, Topoisomerases, HDAC, Tyrosine Kinases (cMet, Abl), p53, Sirtuin, Hedgehog. The recent results in the field of “in situ” target guided synthesis will be presented for the case of tubulin5 and Abl tyrosine kinase. The discussion will take into consideration the coordination of two COST network projects regarding the inhibition of Angiogenesis6 and the targeting of drug resistance in Cancer Stem Cells.7 1.
