Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS) for Assaying Immunosuppressants From Venous Whole Blood by LC-MS/MS Using a Novel Atmospheric Pressure Ionization Probe (UniSpray™)

6 views | Jun 28 2020

Lucía Paniagua-González et al. showed that venous blood VAMS concentrations were correlated to those found in the original liquid venous blood, proving that the VAMS material itself will not bias blood drug concentrations. [Read the Full Post]

Rapamycin: An InhibiTOR of Aging Emerges From the Soil of Easter Island

0 views | May 24 2020

Sebastian I Arriola Apelo et al. discussed recent advances in understanding the molecular and physiological effects of rapamycin treatment, and they discussed how the use of alternative rapamycin treatment regimens or rapamycin analogs had the potential to mitigate the deleterious side effects of rapamycin treatment by more specifically targeting mTORC1.

Attenuation of canonical NF-κB signaling maintains function and stability of human Treg

44 views | May 11 2020

Ziegler LS et al. provided first insights into the role of NF-κB signaling in human Treg. [Read the Full Post]

Kallikrein-related peptidase (KLK10) cessation blunts colorectal cancer cell growth and glucose metabolism by regulating the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway

36 views | May 11 2020

Wei H et al. suggested that KLK10 silencing may attenuate the progression of CRC by inhibiting cell growth and glycolysis via the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling, supporting a potential and promising target for CRC therapy. [Read the Full Post]

G250 Antigen-Targeting Drug-Loaded Nanobubbles Combined with Ultrasound Targeted Nanobubble Destruction: A Potential Novel Treatment for Renal Cell Carcinoma

51 views | Feb 06 2020

Yu Z et al. indicated that the combined G250-TNBs and UTND treatment can deliver anti-tumor drugs to local areas of RCC, increase the local effective drug concentration, and enhance anti-tumor efficacy, thus providing a potential novel method for targeted therapy of RCC. [Read the Full Post]

Rapamycin ester analog CCI-779/Temsirolimus alleviates tau pathology and improves motor deficit in mutant tau transgenic mice

53 views | Feb 06 2020

Frederick C et al. indicated that stimulation of mTOR dependent autophagy by CCI-779 compound is efficient to counteract the accumulation of abnormal tau when administered early or late in a tauopathy model and to improve a motor deficit when started before onset of motor signs.

Preclinical evaluation of drug combinations identifies co-inhibition of Bcl-2/XL/W and MDM2 as a potential therapy in uveal melanoma

0 views | Jan 16 2020

Clapes V et al. showed that inhibition of Bcl-2/XL/W sensitised the UM cell lines to other treatments encouraging investigation of the underlying mechanisms. [Read the Full Post]

Adverse Drug Reactions Involving Protein Kinase Inhibitors: A French Pharmacovigilance Database Study Comparing Safety in Younger and Older Patients (≥ 75 years) with Cancer

59 views | Jan 11 2020

Clapes V et al. showed that PKI-related ADRs in older patients were similar to those in younger adults, except for vascular ADRs, which were significantly more frequent in the older population. [Read the Full Post]

AZD8055 Exerts Antitumor Effects on Colon Cancer Cells by Inhibiting mTOR and Cell-cycle Progression

73 views | Dec 26 2019

Chen Y et al. indicated that AZD8055 induces cytotoxicity, apoptosis, and cell-cycle arrest of colon cancer cells, and exerts an antitumor effect in mice. It also inhibits the mTOR signaling pathway and mTOR-dependent cell-cycle progression. [Read the Full Post]

The PI3K/mTOR dual inhibitor BEZ235 suppresses proliferation and migration and reverses multidrug resistance in acute myeloid leukemia

146 views | Dec 24 2019

Deng L et al. indicated that the PI3K/mTOR dual inhibitor BEZ235 effectively chemosensitizes AML cells via increasing miR-1-3p and subsequently down-regulating BAG4, EDN1 and ABCB1. [Read the Full Post]
