HDPC and ET-18-OMe, both type I amphiphiles and analogues of the naturally occurring biomembrane component lysophosphatidylcholine, are potent anti-neoplastic agents. A series of novel, type I amphiphiles have been synthesized, and their cytostatic activity against cancer cells in culture was determined. The data suggest that cytostatic activity is a generic property of type I amphiphiles. Furthermore, the primary target for these amphiphiles appears to be the inhibition of phosphatidylcholine synthesis via perturbation in the elastic properties of intracellular bilayer membranes.
