All Trans Retinoic Acid (ATRA) is FDA approved in the treatment of promyelocytic leukemia. ATRA is a strong differentiating agent. As such, ATRA has potential as a therapy in a number of cancers, especially in the context of IC medicines. ATRA binds to retinoic acid receptors, and subsequently activates DNA transcription activity to move immature (e.g. malignant) cells toward normal maturation. Consider the use of ATRA in cases of cancer and precancerous lesions, including polyps, actinic keratosis, and others.
