In a nutshell: New compounds may aid in development of targeted therapies for a rare paediatric cancer. Two recently discovered compounds have shown promise in pre-clinical studies for treating Ewing sarcoma, a rare cancer that predominantly affects children and adolescents. The goal of this study is to identify second-generation mithramycin analogs that better target the EWS-FLI1 transcription factor for Ewing sarcoma.
