Both types of m-bromobenzyl BPs inhibited the viability of several breast cancer cell lines with different estrogen-receptor statuses.
In conclusion, esterified m-bromobenzyl non N-BPs constituted a new class of drugs with potent direct antitumor, antiangiogenic and antimetastatic efficacy on breast tumors.
We found that the addition of hydrophobic bromobenzyl groups on non N-BPs side chain rendered them efficient in inhibiting estrogen responsive as well as non-responsive breast cancer cells like MDA-MB-231 and metastatic subpopulation (D3H2LN) cell growth as well as migration and invasion in vitro.
Importantly, we demonstrated that only esterification of m-bromobenzyl bisphosphonate revealed to induce antimetastatic effect in nude mice.
We synthesized non-nitrogen BPs (non N-BPs) containing bromobenzyl group (BP7033Br) in their side chain that were symmetrically esterified with hydrophobic 4-methoxphenyl (BP7033BrALK) and assessed their effects on breast cancer estrogen-responsive cells (T47D, MCF-7) as well as on non responsive ones (SKBR3, MDA-MB-231 and its highly metastatic derived D3H2LN subclone).
Thus, we synthesized a class of BPs that contained bromobenzyl in their side chains (BP7033Br,
