Mifamurtide may be used in immunological and cancer-related cell signaling studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mifamurtide (Muramyl tripeptide phosphatidylethanolamine; MTP-cephalin; MTP-PE) is a synthetic, lipophilic analog of muramyl dipeptide. It acts as an immunostimulant promoting cancer cell destruction via in vivo macrophage activation.

Mifamurtide is an immunomodulator and regulates the activation of monocytes and macrophages. Mifamurtide upregulates the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α, IL-1, IL-8, nitric oxide and prostaglandins E2 and D2. It has anti-tumor effects in children and young adults with high-grade osteosarcoma.
