Bromopyruvic acid is a hexokinase II inhibitor and an effective antitumor agent. The characteristics of 3-bromopyruvate in vitro and in vivo have been reported in the scientific literature since the 1940s. Because it is a highly reactive alkylating agent and it is inherently unstable, it had been described as a metabolic poison. Research at Johns Hopkins has suggested that 3-bromopyruvate could be used to selectively kill cancer cells, while leaving normal cells intact. Recently, the FDA accepted an IND application for the use of 3-bromopyruvate for a Phase I clinical trial in liver cancer.
