Cancer treatments often have adverse effects on the quality of life for young women. One of the most relevant negative impacts is the loss of fertility. Cyclophosphamide is one of the most detrimental chemotherapeutic drugs for the ovary. Cyclophosphamide may induce the destruction of dormant follicles while promoting follicle activation and growth. Herein, we demonstrate the in vivo protective effect of the allosteric Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitor Asciminib on signalling pathways activated by cyclophosphamide in mouse ovaries. Besides, we provide evidence that Asciminib did not interfere with the cytotoxic effect of cyclophosphamide in MCF7 breast cancer cells. Our data indicate that concomitant administration of Asciminib mitigates the cyclophosphamide-induced ovarian reserve loss without preventing the anticancer potential of cyclophosphamide. Altogether these observations are relevant for the development of effective ferto-protective adjuvants to preserve the ovarian reserve from the damaging effect of cancer therapies.
