- Inhibits pancreatic cancer cell growth (up to 100,000-fold more potent that gemcitabine, a current standard therapy)
- Has documented efficacy against pancreatic tumors in a clinically relevant transgenic mouse model
- Overcomes tumor cell resistance to current chemotherapeutic drugs
- Is well tolerated in preclinical toxicity test
- Has demonstrated activities against other cancers (e.g. leukemia, lung, melanoma)
- May stimulate immunogenic cell death to activate host anti-tumor immunity
