Filanesib is a potent Kinesin Spindle Protein (KSP) inhibitor that caused marked tumor regression in preclinical models of human solid tumors and human leukemias, often leading to durable responses.



Investigated for use/treatment in cancer/tumors (unspecified).


This compound is a highly potent KSP inhibitor that demonstrates subnanomolar potency in both enzymatic and cellular assays and causes mitotic arrest, leading to cell death or apoptosis of the immensely proliferating cancer cells.

Mechanism of action

KSP has been identified as an attractive drug target against cancer. Cancer results when normal cellular processes go awry and lead to a massive, uncontrolled cell division, proliferation, and growth. Inhibitors of KSP cause mitotic arrest by preventing the formation of bipolar spindle. The monopola... Read more
