Agelastatin A (AA) is an anti-neoplastic agent with anti-osteopontin (OPN) activity. Brain tumors often express OPN significantly. A comprehensive chemoinformatic analysis followed by in vivo pharmacokinetic evaluations in mice is performed. CNS penetration of AA is about 10%. AA should be further tested for activity against brain tumors.
