    Name Halofuginone
    Groups investigational
    Description Halofuginone is a low molecular weight quinazolinone alkaloid, and a potent inhibitor of collagen alpha1(I) and matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) gene expression. Halofuginone also effectively suppresses tumor progression and metastasis in mice.
    Synonyms Tempostatin (Collgard Biopharmaceuticals)
    Salts Halofuginone hydrobromide
    Brand names
    • Stenorol
    • Tempostatin
    Affected organism
    • Humans and other mammals
    • Protozoa
    Indication For the treatment of scleroderma, cancer, and restenosis.
    Pharmacology Halofuginone, a fully synthetic small molecule, is a potent and selective regulator of stromal cell activation, cell migration and Collagen type I synthesis, a process that has been identified as a 'master switch' in the body's tissue repair process.
    Mechanism of action Halofuginone is a potent inhibitor of collagen a1(I) and matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) gene expression. Halofuginone also suppresses extracellular matrix deposition and cell proliferation. The profound antitumoral effect of halofuginone is attributed to its combined inhibition of the tumor stromal support, vascularization, invasiveness, and cell proliferation.
