Abstract

CXCR4 (C-X-C Chemokine Receptor type 4) and its natural ligand SDF-1a (Stromal-Derived-Factor-1a) areinvolved in a number of physiological and pathological processes including cancer spread and progression.Over the past few years, numerous CXCR4 antagonists have been identified and currently are indifferent development stages as potential agents for the treatment of several diseases involving theCXCR4/SDF-1a axis. Herein, we focus on small molecules reported in literature between 2013 and 2017,claimed as CXCR4 antagonists and potentially useful in the treatment of cancer and other diseases wherethis receptor is involved. Most of the compounds resulted from a chemical optimization of previouslyidentified molecules and some of them could represent suitable candidates for the development ofadvanced anticancer agents.
