Tetrahydroisoquinolines are known to have various biological effects, including antitumor activity. This study investigated the effect of 1chloromethyl-6, 7-dimethoxy-3, 4-dihydro-1H-isoquinoline-2-sulfonic acid amide (CDST), a newly synthesized anticancer agent, on cellular differentiation and proliferation in HL-60 cells.
