What Is Eflornithine Hydrochloride (Vaniqa)?
Cas No.: 96020-91-6
Molecular Formula: C6H15ClF2N2O3
Eflornithine HCl a is a white to off-white solid with a purity of 98% or 99%. Different purities mean different prices.
It is mainly used in the treatment of female facial hirsutism.
It can be indicated alone or in combination with spironolactone for different situations.
Eflornithine has been made into topical creams for women suffering from facial hirsutism under the brand name Vaniqa.
Eflornithine is also made into injections used against sleeping sickness under the brand name Ornidyl in the USA.

It is also an inhibitor of ornithine decarboxylase, while it exhibits high activity in tumor cells.
So eflornithine can also be used for cancers, while the anti-cancer formulations for Eflornithine are very rare to find in the market.
Its anti-tumor activities are still under research in many countries, and very few FDAs approve any anti-cancer eflornithine dosages till today.
Can Eflornithine Be Used For Cancer?
Eflornithine has also been under investigation for the treatment of neuroblastoma.
Research has shown that eflornithine will Increase the Survival rate in High-Risk Neuroblastoma.
It can be used for cancer because it irreversibly inhibits one enzyme: ornithine decarboxylase(ODC).
This enzyme exhibits high activity in tumor cells and will promote cell growth and division.
While the activity of this enzyme is inhibited, it will lead to depletion of putrescine, causing impairment of RNA and DNA synthesis.
therefore eflornithine will eventually inhibit the formation and proliferation of tumor cells and act as an anticancer agent.
