    The vitamin E analogue α-tocopheryl succinate (α-TOS) is an efficient anti-cancer drug. Improved efficacy was achieved through the synthesis of an esterase-resistant α-tocopheryl maleamide (α-TAM). In vitro tests demonstrated higher cytotoxicity of α-TAM towards cancer cells (MCF-7, B16F10) compared to α-TOS prone to esterase-catalyzed hydrolysis. We developed lyophilized liposomal formulations of both α-TOS and α-TAM to solve the problem with cytotoxicity of free α-TAM, as well as the low solubility of both drugs. Neither acute toxicity nor immunotoxicity implicated by in vitro tests was detected in vivo after application of liposomal α-TAM, which significantly reduced the growth of cancer cells in hollow fiber implants. Moreover, liposomal formulation of α-TAM and α-TOS each prevented the growth of tumours in transgenic FVB/N c-neu mice bearing spontaneous breast carcinomas. Liposomal formulation of α-TAM demonstrated anti-cancer activity at levels 10-fold lower than those of α-TOS.
