Synthesis and biological evaluation of a gamma-cyclodextrin-based formulation of the anticancer agent 5,6,11,12,17,18,23,24-octahydrocyclododeca[1,2-b:4,5-b':7,8-b'':10,11-b''']tetraindole (CTet).

Abstract

5,6,11,12,17,18,23,24-Octahydrocyclododeca[1,2-b:4,5-b':7,8-b'':10,11- b''']tetrai ndole (CTet), an indole-3-carbinol (I3C) metabolite endowed with anticancer properties, is poorly soluble in the solvents most frequently used in biological tests. This study indicates that the use of gamma-cyclodextrin (gamma-CD) avoids this problem. Formulated with gamma-CD… (More)
