Paeoniflorin exerts antidepressant-like effects through enhancing neuronal FGF-2 by microglial inactivation

70 views | Apr 23 2021

Jie Cheng et al. found that paeoniflorin exhibited neuroprotective and antidepressant effects in mice, which might be mediated by activating neuronal FGF-2/FGFR1 signaling via the inhibition of microglial activation in the hippocampus. [Read the Full Post]

51 views | Apr 02 2021

Robert Hanes et al. supported LY2874455 as a better therapy than NVP-BGJ398 for FRS2-amplified liposarcoma, and a clinical trial was warranted. [Read the Full Post]

TAS-120 Overcomes Resistance to ATP-Competitive FGFR Inhibitors in Patients with FGFR2 Fusion-Positive Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

55 views | Mar 22 2021

Lipika Goyal et al. demonstrated that the irreversible FGFR inhibitor TAS-120 provided clinical benefit in patients with resistance to BGJ398 or Debio 1347 and overcomed several FGFR2 mutations in ICC models. [Read the Full Post]
