β-Lapachone, a novel Topo I (topoisomerase I) inhibitor, does not stabilize the cleavable complex indicating a novel mode of action, unlike camptothecin (sc-200871). Apoptosis has been demonstrated in HL-60 and human prostate cancer cells treated with β-Lapachone via a p53-independent mechanism and cell cycle arrest at G0/G1,2. β-Lapachone has been observed to accelerate wound healing by increasing cell proliferation in cells such as: keratinocytes, fibroblasts and endothelial while also increasing the migration of fibroblasts and endothelial cells. β-Lapachone has exhibited anti-inflammatory properties by suppressing the NF-κB activation by blocking IκBα degradation and downregulating the ERK, p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and Akt pathway.
