Sudhan D, Siemann D. Cathepsin L inhibition by the small molecule KGP94 suppresses tumor microenvironment enhanced metastasis associated cell functions of prostate and breast cancer cells. Clin Exp Metastasis. 2013;30:891-902 pubmed publisher
..Importantly, KGP94 treatment led to marked attenuation of tumor cell invasion and migration under both normal and aberrant microenvironmental conditions suggesting that it may have significant utility as an anti-metastatic agent. ..
