Background

Deferasirox is an iron chelator [1].

Iron chelate is a soluble complex of iron, sodium and a chelating agent and used to make the iron soluble in water. Iron chelators were initially developed for the treatment of iron overload for clinical use [1].

Deferasirox is an orally iron chelator used for the treatment of iron-overload disease. In DMS-53 lung carcinoma and SK-N-MC neuroepithelioma cell lines, deferasirox inhibited cells proliferation. Deferasirox inhibited iron uptake from human transferrin and mobilized cellular 59Fe [1]. In two oesophageal adenocarcinoma cell lines OE33 and OE19, deferasirox with a standard chemotherapeutic agent inhibited cellular viability and proliferation [2].

In nude mice bearing DMS-53 lung carcinoma xenografts, deferasirox inhibited tumor growth. Also, deferasirox increased cleaved caspase-3, cleaved poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1, the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21CIP1/WAF1 and the expression of the metastasis suppressor protein N-myc downstream-regulated gene 1 while reducing cyclin D1, which suggested deferasirox is an effective antitumor agent [1]. In human xenograft models, deferasirox significantly inhibited tumour growth, which was associated with the decrease in iron levels [2].
