Why Targeted Lytic Peptides for Cancer Treatment:

Lytic peptides have been studied as a treatment for cancer for more than 25 years. As anti-cancer agents, targeted lytic peptide conjugates offer the potential to provide unique advantages over current treatment approaches including the ability to target tumor cells with high specificity, low toxicity, and efficient tumor cell destruction.

How AT-101 Kills Cancer Cells

AT-101, A28 Therapeutics’ lead compound, is a conjugated targeted lytic peptide consisting of the cationic CLYP-71 lytic peptide conjugated to a ligand of the LHRH hormone. The LHRH receptor-targeting unit of AT-101 binds to cancer cells that overexpress LHRH receptors on their cell membranes, allowing the cell-killing lytic peptide unit to be attracted to the negatively charged cancer cell, resulting in targeted cancer cell death without harming healthy cells.
