Theodoropoulou M et al. indicated that for many patients with CD, effective tumor-targeted pharmacological therapy is still lacking. Coordinated efforts are pivotal in establishing efficacy and safety of novel therapeutics in this rare but devastating disease. [Read the Full Post]

Discovery and development of Seliciclib. How systems biology approaches can lead to better drug performance

19 views | Jan 27 2020

Khalil HS et al. argue that optimisation of the therapeutic effects of kinase inhibitors such as Seliciclib could be enhanced using a systems biology approach involving mathematical modelling of the molecular pathways regulating cell growth and division. [Read the Full Post]

Protective effect of roscovitine against rotenone-induced parkinsonism

19 views | Jan 26 2020

Chen Y et al. indicated that mouse models of Parkinson's disease were established by oral rotenone administration and reproduced some of the features of dopaminergic neuronal degeneration. Roscovitine protects against rotenone-induced parkinsonism. [Read the Full Post]

CDK4/6 Inhibitor Palbociclib Amplifies the Radiosensitivity to Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Cells via Mediating Apoptosis and Suppressing DNA Damage Repair

25 views | Jan 16 2020

Xie X et al. demonstrated that palbociclib could provoke a strong antitumor activity as a potential adjuvant to radiation therapy for NPC harboring RB expression. [Read the Full Post]

MK-8776, a novel chk1 kinase inhibitor, radiosensitizes p53-defective human tumor cells

23 views | Jan 15 2020

Bridges KA et al. indicated that MK-8776 radiosensitizes tumor cells by mechanisms that include abrogation of the G2 block and inhibition of DSB repair. Our findings support the clinical evaluation of MK-8776 in combination with radiation. [Read the Full Post]
