Abstract

Abstract. Childhood bone cancer though rare, has very limited treatment choices, with poor survival rates and often involving amputation. We have developed a novel molecule, 2', 4'-dihydroxy-dithion-dibenzoyl-methane and tested it on hepatic, colon, lung and osteoblasts cancer cell lines. Thionylation of 2', 4'- dihydroxydibenzoylmethane led to selective targeting of bone cancer cells, stopping their growth and leading to their death without affecting non-cancerous cells within the bone marrow or other non-malignant cells.
