There is considerable evidence that DNA intercalating drugs fail to penetrate tumor tissue efficiently. This study used the multicellular layer (MCL) experimental model, in conjunction with computational modeling, to test the hypothesis that a DNA intercalator in phase II clinical trial, N-[2-(dimethylamino)-ethyl]acridine-4-carboxamide (DACA), has favorable extravascular transport properties. Single cell uptake and metabolism of DACA and the related but more basic aminoacridine 9-[3… CONTINUE READING
