A new promising steroid derivative of Exemestane (Exe), the drug used for the treatment of estrogen-dependent breast cancer, was synthesized and evaluated against a set of human cancer cell lines. The new compound (Oxymestane-D1, Oxy) was tested comparatively with Exe against colon (C2BBe1, WiDr), liver (HepG2, HuH-7), lung (A549, H1299) and prostate (LNCaP, PC3) human cancer cell lines. Likewise, its effect on human colon normal cells (CCD-841 CoN) and human normal fibroblast cells (HFF-1) was studied. Read More
