Description

ANX-510 (CoFactor) is a folate-based biomodulator drug being developed to enhance the activity and reduce associated toxicity of the widely used cancer chemotherapy, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). CoFactor use with 5-FU is being evaluated in clinical trials in first line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer.

Mechanism of action

ANX-510(CoFactor) enhances 5-FU activity to inhibit cancer growth by creating more stable binding of a metabolite of 5-FU, called 5-fluorodeoxyuracil monophosphate (FdUMP) to the target enzyme, thymidylate synthase (TS). Numerous preclinical and two clinical studies suggest that CoFactor provides a greater clinical benefit compared with the approved 5-FU biomodulator, leucovorin, which must undergo chemical conversion to become the active form of folate. As CoFactor is the active metabolite of leucovorin, CoFactor circumvents the chemical pathway that is required by leucovorin. CoFactor is able to directly deliver the active form of folate improving 5-FU performance with lower toxicity.
