Description

Ixabepilone is an epothilone B analog developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb as a cancer drug. On October 16, 2007, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ixabepilone for the treatment of aggressive metastatic or locally advanced breast cancer no longer responding to currently available chemotherapies. Ixabepilone is administered through injection, and will be marketed under the trade name Ixempra. Ixabepilone is a semisynthetic analogue of epothilone B. It has a lactone–lactam modification that minimizes susceptibility to esterase degradation.

Mechanism of action

Binding of Ixabepilone to beta-tubulins (e.g. beta-III tubulin) stabilizes microtubules. Microtubules are essential to cell division, and epothilones therefore stop cells from properly dividing. Like taxol, Ixabepilone binds to the αβ-tubulin heterodimer subunit. Once bound, the rate of αβ-tubulin dissociation decreases, thus stabilizing the microtubules.

Taxonomy

Description
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as epothilones and analogues. These are macrolides consisting of a 16-member lactone ring conjugated at the carbon 16 with a 1-(2-methyl-1,3-thiazol-4-yl)prop-1-en-2-yl group. Some epothilone analogues containing a lactam ring instead of the lactone ring.
