A new molecule with anti-cancer and anti-metastatic properties



A new molecule with anti-cancer and anti-metastatic properties has just been discovered by teams from CNRS, CEA, Institut Curie and Inserm, in collaboration with Australian and English researchers. This anticancer molecule acts on the cells resistant to conventional chemotherapy through an entirely new mechanism of action. The latter not only target cell multiplication but also their mobility and thus prevent metastasis.​​

Published on 28 August 2012
Published in Cancer Research, the results obtained in vitro and in animals could, in the medium term, lead to the development of alternative cancer treatments.

Press release available in French.
