Y-27632 preserves epidermal integrity in a human skin organ-culture (hSOC) system by regulating AKT and ERK signaling pathways

10 views | Nov 23 2019

Zhang X et al. found that Y-227632 can maintain skin epidermal integrity through regulation of AKT and ERK activity in the hSOC. [Read the Full Post]

Targeting the PI3K/Akt/mTOR-pathway with the pan-Akt inhibitor GDC-0068 in PIK3CA-mutant breast cancer brain metastases

32 views | Oct 08 2019

Ippen FM et al. suggested that the Akt-inhibitor GDC-0068 may be an encouraging targeted treatment strategy for breast cancer brain metastasis patients with activating mutations in the PI3K pathway. These data provide a rationale to further evaluate the efficacy of GDC-0068 in patients with brain metastases. [Read the Full Post]

Ipatasertib plus paclitaxel versus placebo plus paclitaxel as first-line therapy for metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (LOTUS): a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2 trial

50 views | Oct 03 2019

Kim SB et al. supported AKT-targeted therapy for triple-negative breast cancer. Ipatasertib warrants further investigation for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer. [Read the Full Post]

A Phase II Trial of Neoadjuvant MK-2206, an AKT Inhibitor, with Anastrozole in Clinical Stage II or III PIK3CA-Mutant ER-Positive and HER2-Negative Breast Cancer

66 views | Jul 24 2019

Ma CX et al. indicated that MK-2206 is unlikely to add to the efficacy of anastrozole alone in PIK3CA-mutant ER+ breast cancer and should not be studied further in the target patient population. [Read the Full Post]

Zhou Q suggested that ABHD5 may play an oncogenic role in endometrial cancer via the AKT pathway. [Read the Full Post]

Combination AZD5363 with Enzalutamide Significantly Delays Enzalutamide-resistant Prostate Cancer in Preclinical Models

189 views | Mar 11 2019

Toren P et al. provided preclinical data to support evaluation of combination targeting of the PI3K/Akt pathway and the androgen-receptor axis in the clinic using AZD5363 and ENZ, respectively. [Read the Full Post]

Ex vivo AKT-inhibition facilitates generation of polyfunctional stem cell memory-like CD8+ T cells for adoptive immunotherapy

0 views | Jan 21 2019

Mousset CM et al. demonstrated that AKT-inhibitors with different modality of action promote the ex vivo generation of stem cell memory-like CD8+ T cells with a unique metabolic profile and retained polyfunctionality. Akt-inhibitor VIII and GDC-0068 outperformed other inhibitors, and are therefore promising candidates for ex vivo generation of superior tumor-reactive T cells for adoptive immunotherapy in cancer patients.

A phase II, randomised study of mFOLFOX6 with or without the Akt inhibitor ipatasertib in patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer

407 views | Jan 18 2019

Bang YJ et al. showed that Ipatasertib/mFOLFOX6 compared with placebo/mFOLFOX6 did not improve PFS in unselected or biomarker-selected patients. No unexpected safety concerns were observed. [Read the Full Post]

Identification of DNA-PKcs as a primary resistance factor of TIC10 in hepatocellular carcinoma cells

288 views | Dec 14 2018

Cheng L et al. found that TIC10 showed promising anti-HCC activity, alone or together with DNA-PKcs inhibitors. [Read the Full Post]

Identification of approved and investigational drugs that inhibit hypoxia-inducible factor-1 signaling

0 views | Nov 17 2018

Hsu CW et al. underlined the importance of developing a battery of robust assay platforms and confirmation studies that focus on endogenous protein targets so that only relevant and reliable data will be taken into pre-clinical and clinical studies. [Read the Full Post]
