173 views | Mar 22 2022

Kentaro Sato et al. found that miR‑218 showed a wider range of therapeutic efficacy compared with YM155, suggesting that miR‑218 should be evaluated as a treatment target. [Read the Full Post]

Sensitizing TRAIL response via differential modulation of anti- and pro-apoptotic factors by AZD5582 combined with ER nanosomal TRAIL in neuroblastoma

62 views | Feb 19 2022

Chaohong Huang et al. identified that the concomitant regulation of both antiapoptotic and proapoptotic factors and DR5 is an essential molecular mechanism for overcoming TRAIL resistance in SH-SY5Y and the combination of ERN-T and AZD5582 potentially constitutes a novel therapeutic strategy, which is highly effective and safe for neuroblastoma.
