Role of epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor-induced interferon pathway signaling in the head and neck squamous cell carcinoma therapeutic response

14 views | Feb 06 2021

Sean P Korpela 1 et al. found eterogeneous, tumor cell-intrinsic, EGFR/ERBB inhibitor-induced IFN pathway activation in HNSCC and suggest that individual tumor responses to oncogene-targeted agents are a sum of direct growth inhibitory effects and variably-induced participation of host immune cells.

Dual inhibition of FOXM1 and its compensatory signaling pathway decreased the survival of ovarian cancer cells

15 views | Feb 05 2021

Dae Woo Lee et al. found that the addition of tipifarnib or rottlerin to inhibit N‑Ras or p‑PKCδ (S664), respectively, inhibited the compensatory signaling pathway response induced by FDI‑6 in HeyA8 cells. [Read the Full Post]

EGFR C797S as a Resistance Mechanism of Lazertinib in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer with EGFR T790M Mutation

21 views | Dec 30 2020

Sehhoon Park et al. reported the first case of resistance mechanism to the novel third-generation EGFR TKI, lazertinib, which showed promising clinical efficacy in phase 1-2 study. [Read the Full Post]

Poziotinib suppresses ovarian cancer stem cell growth via inhibition of HER4-mediated STAT5 pathway

23 views | Dec 15 2020

Heejin Lee et al. suggested that HER4 might be a promising therapeutic target for ovarian CSCs, and that poziotinib might be an effective therapeutic option for the prevention of ovarian cancer recurrence. [Read the Full Post]

Poziotinib Inhibits the Efflux Activity of the ABCB1 and ABCG2 Transporters and the Expression of the ABCG2 Transporter Protein in Multidrug Resistant Colon Cancer Cells

22 views | Dec 14 2020

Yongchao Zhang et al. showed that poziotinib interacted with the ABCB1 and ABCG2 transporter, suggesting that poziotinib might increase the efficacy of certain chemotherapeutic drugs used in treating MDR CRC. [Read the Full Post]

Preclinical Test of Dacomitinib, an Irreversible EGFR Inhibitor, Confirms Its Effectiveness for Glioblastoma

20 views | Dec 08 2020

Cristina Zahonero et al. confirmd that dacomitinib clearly affected receptor signaling in vivo and that its strong antitumoral effect was independent of the presence of mutant receptor isoforms although it could be affected by the PTEN status (as it was less effective in a PTEN-deleted GBM line).

Cost-effectiveness of treatments for HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer and associated metastases: an overview of systematic reviews

24 views | Nov 21 2020

Vakaramoko Diaby et al. examined evidence on the cost-effectiveness of treatments for HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer and associated metastases through a review of systematic reviews on the topic. [Read the Full Post]

SHP2 is a multifunctional therapeutic target in drug resistant metastatic breast cancer

36 views | Oct 19 2020

Hao Chen et al.found that SHP2 constituted a shared signaling node allowing MBC cells to simultaneously engage a diversity of growth and survival pathways, including those derived from the ECM. [Read the Full Post]

Gefitinib Versus Gefitinib Plus Pemetrexed and Carboplatin Chemotherapy in EGFR-Mutated Lung Cancer

0 views | Sep 11 2020

Vanita Noronha et al. found that adding pemetrexed and carboplatin chemotherapy to gefitinib significantly prolonged PFS and OS but increased toxicity in patients with NSCLC. [Read the Full Post]
