17-AAG inhibits vemurafenib-associated MAP kinase activation and is synergistic with cellular immunotherapy in a murine melanoma model

5 views | Jan 08 2020

Joshi SS et al. indicated their sdudies support a role for 17-AAG and HSP90 inhibition in enhancing cellular immunotherapy for melanoma. [Read the Full Post]

Tanespimycin as antitumor therapy

0 views | Jan 07 2020

Dimopoulos MA et al. indiacated that tanespimycin represents a promising new agent for the treatment of relapsed/refractory MM. Results of ongoing and future trials will determine the role of tanespimycin both in MM and other malignancies, including breast cancer. [Read the Full Post]

Hsp90 inhibitors induce the unfolded protein response in bovine and mice lung cells

14 views | Dec 19 2019

Kubra KT et al. demonstrated that Hsp90 inhibition triggers the activities of the unfolded protein response, and suggests that this molecular machinery contributes in the protective action of Hsp90 inhibitors in the lung microvasculature. [Read the Full Post]

NVP-AUY922, a novel HSP90 inhibitor, inhibits the progression of malignant pheochromocytoma in vitro and in vivo

0 views | Dec 19 2019

Lian J et al. indicated that NVP-AUY922 exhibits potent anti-PCC activities in vitro and in vivo and represents a promising therapeutic small molecule for treating malignant PCC. [Read the Full Post]

Activity of the Hsp90 inhibitor luminespib among non-small-cell lung cancers harboring EGFR exon 20 insertions

14 views | Dec 18 2019

Piotrowska Z et al.showed that this study met its primary end point, suggesting that luminespib may be an active therapy for advanced NSCLC patients with EGFR ins20. Luminespib is generally well-tolerated, though reversible low-grade ocular toxicity is common. Further study of luminespib and other hsp90 inhibitors in this population is warranted.

Quantitative phosphoproteomic analysis of acquired cancer drug resistance to pazopanib and dasatinib

191 views | May 26 2019

Vyse S et al. provided a useful resource detailing the candidate signalling determinants of acquired TKI resistance; and reveals a therapeutic approach of inhibiting HSP90 function as a means of salvage therapy to overcome pazopanib and dasatinib resistance. [Read the Full Post]

Drug sensitivity profiling identifies potential therapies for lymphoproliferative disorders with overactive JAK/STAT3 signaling

248 views | May 06 2019

Kuusanmäki H et al. showed alternative approaches to inhibit STAT3 activity and suggest Hsp90 as a therapeutic target in lymphoproliferative disorders with constitutively active STAT3. [Read the Full Post]
