Taurolidine is a broad spectrum antibiotic that was derived from the aminosulfoacid Taurine (sc-202354). Shown to be effective against aerobic, anaerobic, gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria as well as fungi and mycobacterium. Found to exhibit antitumor activity with low toxicity, antiangiogenic effects, antiendotoxin activity, and to induce apoptosis of tumor cells; thereby decreasing proliferation of the tumor cells (both in vitro and in vivo). Has been used in studies of alternative chemotherapeutics, and is shown to work synergistically with rhTRAIL (sc-4547) doubling the effects of Taurolidine alone. The synergistic response of Taurolidine and TRAIL may outline a new therapeutic strategy in oncology therapy.
