We examined whether lymphatic metastasis was inhibited by the potent angiogenesis inhibitor AGM-1470 [O-(chloroacetyl-carbamoyl)fumagillol, TNP-470] using a rat lymphatic metastasis model. Clone A of the rat fibrosarcoma AS653HM, when inoculated into the footpads of syngeneic rats, highly and preferentially metastasized to lymph nodes. In contrast, when AGM-1470 was administered subcutaneously to rats bearing the tumor cells, the tumor growth and incidence of metastasis in the lymph nodes were reduced in a dose- and schedule-dependent manner. Similar inhibition of lymphatic metastasis was also observed in the rats in which treatment with AGM-1470 was initiated following resection of the primary tumor in the foot, indicating that the treatment with AGM-1470 inhibited the progression of lymphatic metastasis at the metastatic sites of the lymph nodes. These results suggest that AGM-1470 can be a potential agent to prevent lymphatic metastasis.
