Pharmacology

Indication

Investigated for use/treatment in breast cancer.

Pharmacodynamics

Mechanism of action

BZL101 works by eliciting a cancer cell’s innate mechanism of self-suicide or apoptosis. The drug selectively releases Apoptosis Inducing Factor-1 (AIF1) from a cancer cell’s mitochondrial membrane. AIF then moves to the cell’s nucleus, disintegrating the DNA structure, and fragmenting and killing the cancer cell.
