DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Evidence in pre-clinical and clinical settings suggests the involvement of chemokines in metastatic tumor cell disease spreading. We have recently provided data validating the involvement of the CX3CR1/Fractalkine axisin breast and prostate cancer metastasis. We have discovered a potent in vivo efficacious drug-like small molecule using in vitro chemotaxis and functional assays to provide pharmacological proof of concept that modulation of the CX3CR1/ Fractalkine axis with a small molecule CX3CR1 antagonist may have therapeutic benefit in the treatment of advanced breast and prostate cancer. Specific aims of this proposal are: Aim 1: To provide an improved drug-like CX3CR1 antagonist. The lead compound, JMS-17-2, will beoptimized using medicinal chemistry approaches; maintaining potency, improving selectivity, and optimizing in vitro pharmacokinetic properties and the resulting optimized lead from this aim will be evaluated for in vivo pharmacokinetics in mice and u
