BPR0C305 is a novel N-substituted indolyl glyoxylamide previously reported with in-vitro cytotoxic activity against a panel of human cancer cells including P-gp-expressing multiple drug-resistant cell sublines. The present study further examined the underlying molecular mechanism of anticancer action and evaluated the in-vivo antitumor activities of BPR0C305. BPR0C305 is a novel synthetic small indole derivative that demonstrates in-vitro activities against human cancer cell growth by inhibiting tubulin polymerization, disrupting cellular microtubule assembly, and causing cell cycle arrest at the G2/M phase. It is also orally active against leukemia and solid tumor growths in mouse models. Findings of these pharmacological and pharmacokinetic studies suggest that BPR0C305 is a promising lead compound for further preclinical developments.
