Small molecules targeting p53 represent an emerging group of potentially useful agents for the improvement of antitumor therapy. These modulators include agents that activate wild-type p53 or reactivate mutant p53 and inhibitors of p53 functions. Preclinical evidences support the interest of combination strategies with conventional antitumor agents.
