A synthetic analog of ceramide (AD2725) elevated ceramide levels in MDA-MB-435 breast cancer cells inducing apoptosis and resulted in cell death. In animal studies, using a model of xenograft breast cancer cancer cells in nude mice, treatment with AD2725 resulted in a significant reduction of the tumor volume and weight, and a significantly prolonged survival of the treated mice. The analog also significantly elevated INF gamma and IL-12 cytokine levels and reduced the level of IL-10 in the plasma. These data indicate that use of suitable synthetic analogs that most probably elevate the ceramide levels may have beneficial anti-cancer therapeutic effects.
