The cytotoxicity in vitro and antitumor activity in vivo of the organotin compound tri-n-butyltin(IV) lupinylsulfide hydrogen fumarate (IST-FS 35) have been investigated. The IC50 values obtained in a panel of tumor cell lines were compared to those of the parental compound IST-FS 29 in the same cells. IST-FS 35 resulted significantly more active than IST-FS 29 with IC50 values in the range 0.16–1.8 μM. Toxicity studies in vivo, after intravenous administration of escalating concentrations of IST-FS 35, provided the identification of the maximal tolerated dose (3.5 mg/kg) which was employed as therapeutic dose in the antitumor activity experiments. Preliminary results, in transplanted murine tumor models, revealed that both the P388 myelomonocytic leukaemia and the B16-F10 melanoma, implanted subcutaneously in BDF1 mice, were inhibited about 96% in their tumor volume at day 11, following a single intravenous injection of the compound.

Abstract

The cytotoxicity in vitro and antitumor activity in vivo of the organotin compound tri-n-butyltin(IV) lupinylsulfide hydrogen fumarate (IST-FS 35) have been investigated. The IC50 values obtained in a panel of tumor cell lines were compared to those of the parental compound IST-FS 29 in the same cells. IST-FS 35 resulted significantly more active than IST-FS 29 with IC50 values in the range 0.16–1.8 μM. Toxicity studies in vivo, after intravenous administration of escalating concentrations of IST-FS 35, provided the identification of the maximal tolerated dose (3.5 mg/kg) which was employed as therapeutic dose in the antitumor activity experiments. Preliminary results, in transplanted murine tumor models, revealed that both the P388 myelomonocytic leukaemia and the B16-F10 melanoma, implanted subcutaneously in BDF1 mice, were inhibited about 96% in their tumor volume at day 11, following a single intravenous injection of the compound.
