Class/mechanism: Clusterin inhibitor. Clusterin is upregulated in cancer cells in response to antineoplastic treatment and is hypothesized to play a role in cancer cell survival and treatment resistance. Increased clusterin production has been associated with increased rates of progression, treatment resistance, and shorter survival. Inhibiting clusterin is hypothesized to decrease the rates of tumor growth and resistance to other treatments.
