A phase II study to evaluate LY2603618 in combination with gemcitabine in pancreatic cancer patients

57 views | Apr 13 2020

Laquente B et al. showed that LY2603618/gemcitabine was not superior to gemcitabine for the treatment of patients with pancreatic cancer. [Read the Full Post]

Effects of a checkpoint kinase inhibitor, AZD7762, on tumor suppression and bone remodeling

56 views | Apr 12 2020

Wang L et al. indicated that in addition to acting as a tumor suppressor, AZD7762 may prevent bone loss by inhibiting osteoclastogenesis and stimulating osteoblast mineralization. [Read the Full Post]

CHK1 Inhibition in Small-Cell Lung Cancer Produces Single-Agent Activity in Biomarker-Defined Disease Subsets and Combination Activity with Cisplatin or Olaparib

61 views | Apr 07 2020

Sen T et al. provided a preclinical proof of concept supporting the initiation of a clinical efficacy trial in patients with platinum-sensitive or platinum-resistant relapsed SCLC. [Read the Full Post]

Prexasertib treatment induces homologous recombination deficiency and synergizes with olaparib in triple-negative breast cancer cells

68 views | Apr 07 2020

Mani C et al. indicted that RAD51 could be a biomarker for aggressive TNBC and for racial disparity in breast cancer. As positive correlation exists between RAD51 and CHEK1 expression in breast cancer, the in vitro preclinical data presented here provides additional mechanistic insights for further evaluation of the rational combination of prexasertib and olaparib for improved outcomes and reduced racial disparity in TNBC.

Chk1 inhibitor SCH 900776 enhances the antitumor activity of MLN4924 on pancreatic cancer

0 views | Jan 22 2020

Li JA et al. provided the preclinical evidence and the rationale of the combination therapy of MLN4924 with SCH 900776 or other Chk1 inhibitors to treat PC. [Read the Full Post]

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

85 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]

Targeting the cell cycle in head and neck cancer by Chk1 inhibition: a novel concept of bimodal cell death

78 views | Dec 22 2019

van Harten AM et al. concluded that Chk1 has become a key molecule in HNSCC cell cycle regulation and a very promising therapeutic target. Chk1 inhibition leads to S-phase apoptosis or death in mitosis. We provide a potential efficacy biomarker and combination therapy to follow-up in clinical setting. [Read the Full Post]

Effect of CHK1 Inhibition on CPX-351 Cytotoxicity in vitro and ex vivo

135 views | Jun 10 2019

Vincelette ND et al. showed that CHK1 inhibition increases the antiproliferative effect of CPX-351 on primary AML specimens ex vivo, offering the possibility that CPX-351 may be well suited to combine with CHK1-targeted agents. [Read the Full Post]

Chk1 inhibitor SCH 900776 enhances the antitumor activity of MLN4924 on pancreatic cancer

220 views | May 28 2019

Li JA et al. provided the preclinical evidence and the rationale of the combination therapy of MLN4924 with SCH 900776 or other Chk1 inhibitors to treat PC. [Read the Full Post]

The Chk1 inhibitor MK-8776 increases the radiosensitivity of human triple-negative breast cancer by inhibiting autophagy

223 views | May 09 2019

Zhou ZR et al. suggested that MK-8776increases human TNBC radiosensitivity by inhibiting irradiation-induced autophagy and that MK-8776 may be a potential agent in the radiosensitization of human TNBC. [Read the Full Post]
