The new molecular entity quinoxalinhydrazide derivative NVX-412 was identified as a promising drug candidate for the treatment of various cancer types due to its strong cytotoxic activity and relative specificity. Here, we provide first data about the mechanisms of action of NVX-412. We show that NVX-412 exerts its anti-neoplastic activity in a p53-independent manner and induces S-phase arrest and DNA damage as assessed by γH2AX staining. We suggest a bi-modal (dose-dependent) mode of action of NVX-412, being primarily cytostatic at lower and predominantly cytotoxic at higher concentrations. Based on the broad and consistent anti-neoplastic activity observed, NVX-412 holds promise as an effective drug candidate for the treatment of various cancer types, especially for hematological malignancies with highly unmet medical need.
