YAP/TAZ suppress drug penetration into hepatocellular carcinoma via stromal activation

6 views | Jun 15 2021

Kyungjoo Cho et al. indicated that drug delivery into liver cancer was impaired by YAP/TAZ signaling in tumor cells and subsequent activation of stroma by the signaling. [Read the Full Post]

Impact of tumor growth rate during preceding treatment on tumor response to nivolumab or irinotecan in advanced gastric cancer

8 views | Jun 15 2021

K Kato et al. suggested that NIVO treatment was a more favorable option for patients with slow-growing tumors, and NIVO and IRI were similarly recommended for patients with rapid-growing tumors in refractory AGC. TGR and NL emergence during preceding treatment might be helpful for drug selection and warrant further investigation. [Read the Full Post]

ALK-negative lung inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in a young adult: A case report and literature review of molecular alterations

10 views | May 24 2021

Silvia Angela Debonis et al. thought that although there was no standard of care for the treatment of IMT, identifying genomic alterations could help to redefine the management of patients with negative-ALK disease. [Read the Full Post]

Paeoniflorin exerts antidepressant-like effects through enhancing neuronal FGF-2 by microglial inactivation

22 views | Apr 23 2021

Jie Cheng et al. found that paeoniflorin exhibited neuroprotective and antidepressant effects in mice, which might be mediated by activating neuronal FGF-2/FGFR1 signaling via the inhibition of microglial activation in the hippocampus. [Read the Full Post]

17 views | Apr 20 2021

Menghuan Guo et al. suggested that CED could induce apoptosis and G1 phase cell cycle arrest in A549 cells. [Read the Full Post]

Optimal Therapies for Recurrent Glioblastoma: A Bayesian Network Meta-Analysis

14 views | Apr 20 2021

Wenlin Chen et al. indicated that bevacizumab (BEV) plus CCNU and regorafenib had a higher efficacy on the ORR, 6-m PFS rate and OS, and that BEV monotherapy or BEV combined with active drug therapies was advantageous for the ORR and 6-m PFS rate. [Read the Full Post]

15 views | Apr 13 2021

Narges K Gortany et al.indicated that foretinib might have the therapeutic potential against human GBM which deserve further investigation. [Read the Full Post]

Preclinical Evaluation of the Pan-FGFR Inhibitor LY2874455 in FRS2-Amplified Liposarcoma

20 views | Apr 02 2021

Robert Hanes et al. supported LY2874455 as a better therapy than NVP-BGJ398 for FRS2-amplified liposarcoma, and a clinical trial was warranted. [Read the Full Post]

Pazopanib (GW786034) and cyclophosphamide in patients with platinum-resistant, recurrent, pre-treated ovarian cancer - Results of the PACOVAR-trial

24 views | Feb 19 2021

C Dinkic et al. thought that Pazopanib 600mg daily p.o. and metronomic cyclophosphamide 50mg daily p.o. was a feasible regimen for patients with recurrent platinum-resistant EOC and showed promising activity in this previously treated patient population. [Read the Full Post]
