Description: Batimastat (also known as BB-94) is a synthetic matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor that has shown antineoplastic and antiangiogenic activity in various tumor models. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are thought to play a significant role in tumor invasion and metastasis as well as angiogenesis. Batimastat, also known as BB-94, acts as an inhibitor of metalloproteinase activity by binding the zinc ion in the active site of MMPs.

Batimastat is a potent, broad spectrum matrix metalloprotease (MMP) inhibitor (IC50 values are 3, 4, 4, 6 and 20 nM for MMP -1, -2, -9, -7 and -3 respectively). Exhibits antiproliferative, anti-invasive and antimetastatic activity in human ovarian carcinoma xenografts in vivo .
Batimastat (INN/USAN, codenamed BB-94) is an anticancer drug that belongs to the family of drugs called angiogenesis inhibitors. It acts as a matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor (MMPI) by mimicking natural MMPI peptides. Batimastat was the first MMPI that went into clinical trials. First results of a Phase I trial appeared in 1994. The drug reached Phase III but was never marketed; mainly because it couldn't be administered orally (as opposed to the newer and chemically similar MMPI marimastat), and injection into the peritoneum caused peritonitis.
