anlotinib alters tumor immune microenvironment by downregulating PD-L1 expression on vascular endothelial cells

36 views | May 10 2020

Liu S et al. demonstrated that PD-L1 high expression on VECs inhibits the infiltration of CD8+ T cells, whereas promotes the aggregation of FoxP3+ T cells into tumor tissues, thus becoming an "immunosuppressive barrier". Anlotinib can ameliorate the immuno-microenvironment by downregulating PD-L1 expression on VECs to inhibit tumor growth. [Read the Full Post]

Resistance to RET-Inhibition in RET-Rearranged NSCLC Is Mediated By Reactivation of RAS/MAPK Signaling

221 views | Mar 14 2020

Nelson-Taylor SK et al. demonstrated that resistance to ponatinib in RET-rearranged lung adenocarcinoma is mediated by bypass signaling mechanisms that result in restored RAS/MAPK activation. [Read the Full Post]

Clinical activity and molecular correlates of response to atezolizumab alone or in combination with bevacizumab versus sunitinib in renal cell carcinoma

128 views | Feb 25 2020

McDermott DF et al. suggested that prediction of outcomes with anti-VEGF and immunotherapy may be possible and offer mechanistic insights into how blocking VEGF may overcome resistance to immune checkpoint blockade. [Read the Full Post]

Cabozantinib (XL184) and R428 (BGB324) Inhibit the Growth of Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma (ESCC)

149 views | Jan 25 2020

Yang PW et al. demonstrated that both cabozantinib and R428 inhibit ESCC growth in cell and xenograft models. The results reveal the great potential of using cabozantinib for targeted therapy of ESCC. [Read the Full Post]

Ponatinib (AP24534), a multitargeted pan-FGFR inhibitor with activity in multiple FGFR-amplified or mutated cancer models

453 views | Sep 23 2019

Gozgit JM et al. showed that ponatinib is a potent pan-FGFR inhibitor and provide strong rationale for its evaluation in patients with FGFR-driven cancers. [Read the Full Post]

E7080 (lenvatinib), a multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor, demonstrates antitumor activities against colorectal cancer xenografts

0 views | Sep 22 2019

Wiegering A et al. suggested antiangiogenic activity of E7080 at a dosage that was well tolerated by nude mice. E7080 may provide therapeutic benefits in the treatment of CRC with mutated KRAS. [Read the Full Post]
