Masłyk M et al. indicated their data unveil the dual-activity of CX-4945; when used in anti-cancer therapy, it may simultaneously prevent cancer-associated candidiasis. [Read the Full Post]

CX-4945, a Selective Inhibitor of Casein Kinase 2, Synergizes with B Cell Receptor Signaling Inhibitors in Inducing Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma Cell Death

686 views | Jun 08 2019

Mandato E et al. suggested a role for CK2 downstream of the BCR in controlling survival pathways crucial for cell growth of different DLBCL subtypes. Also, the use of CX-4945 in combination with BCR signaling blockers could represent a novel rational therapeutic approach in the DLBCL. [Read the Full Post]
