Long-Sheng Chang et al. demonstrated the power of the de novo unbiased approach for drug discovery and represented a major step forward in the advancement of therapeutics for the treatment of NF2 related malignancies. [Read the Full Post]

Pharmacovigilance analysis of cardiac toxicities associated with targeted therapies for metastatic non-small cell lung carcinoma

59 views | Aug 25 2021

Sarah Waliany et al. thought that monitoring for heart failure and arrhythmias should be considered with NSCLC targeted therapies, especially osimertinib. [Read the Full Post]

Genetic variant within CDK6 regulates immune response to palbociclib treatment

52 views | Jun 17 2021

Valentina Serra et al. suggested that the effect of palbociclib treatment might depend on underlying genetically encoded individual immune response as well as the direct response to the drug. [Read the Full Post]

Exosomes derived from miR-16-5p-overexpressing keratinocytes attenuates bleomycin-induced skin fibrosis

69 views | May 24 2021

Yunyao Bo et al. thought that the localized delivery of miR-16-5p by keratinocytes-derived exosomes might have potential for efficient clinical treatment of skin fibrosis. [Read the Full Post]

IGF-1R inhibition induces MEK phosphorylation to promote survival in colon carcinomas

53 views | Apr 07 2021

Qing Wang et al. found that the treatment of colon tumor cells with IGF-1R inhibitors stimulated p70S6K1 activity via MEK1/2 to promote survival, providing a new strategy for colorectal cancer therapeutics. [Read the Full Post]

Evaluation of NTRK immunohistochemistry as a screening method for NTRK gene fusion detection in non-small cell lung cancer

82 views | Dec 23 2020

Hedvig Elfving et al. found that the presence of NTRK fusion genes in non-small cell lung cancer was exceedingly rare. The use of the immunohistochemical NTRK assay would result in a small number of false positive cases. [Read the Full Post]

Clinicopathologic, Genomic, and Protein Expression Characterization of 356 ROS1 Fusion Driven Solid Tumors Cases

88 views | Dec 22 2020

Richard S P Huang et al. characterized a large cohort of ROS1 fusionpos NSCLC and non-NSCLC solid tumors and discovered 10 novel ROS1 fusions. [Read the Full Post]

Repotrectinib (TPX-0005), effectively reduces growth of ALK driven neuroblastoma cells

0 views | Nov 24 2020

Diana Cervantes-Madrid et al. showed that repotrectinib was capable of inhibiting signaling activity of a range of ALK mutant variants found in neuroblastoma patients and importantly it exhibited strong antitumor effects in a xenograft model of neuroblastoma. [Read the Full Post]

Cases of ROS1-rearranged lung cancer: when to use crizotinib, entrectinib, lorlatinib, and beyond?

91 views | Nov 23 2020

Kartik Sehgal et al. described cases of advanced ROS1-rearranged lung cancer receiving crizotinib, entrectinib, and/or lorlatinib in first and later line treatment settings to dissect the current state of evidence supporting management decisions for these patients. [Read the Full Post]

Alectinib-Associated Perforated Duodenal Ulcer

62 views | Nov 14 2020

Maximilian J Hochmair et al. found that later-line lorlatinib treatment could induce sustained responses in patients with advanced ALK- and ROS1-positive lung cancer. [Read the Full Post]
