Core Tip There were approximately 14 million new cancer cases worldwide each year and more than half of the population in the developed countries are overweight or obese. Obesity is responsible for nearly 25% of the relative contribution to cancer incidence, which ranks second only to tobacco use. It would be, therefore, highly desirable to have drugs that work for both cancer and obesity. In this article, the biological function of a common therapeutic target, methionine aminopeptidase-2, and the status of some of its inhibitors in pre-clinical and clinical trials for cancer and/or obesity were discussed.
