Preclinical activity of SDX-7320 in mouse models of obesity and obesity-driven cancer

Cancer patients who are obese face a greater risk of dying from cancer compared to non-obese patients (Calle, 2003). Excess visceral adiposity is believed to contribute to metastasis and progression of cancer via multiple mechanisms: increased secretion of the adipose tissue hormone leptin, decreased secretion of adiponectin, increased production of estrogen in adipose tissue, and elevated insulin (secondary to peripheral insulin resistance) as well as the local effects of inflammatory cytokines (Gucalp, 2016).
