Phase Ib study of the combination of pexidartinib (PLX3397), a CSF-1R inhibitor, and paclitaxel in patients with advanced solid tumors

99 views | Aug 03 2019

Wesolowski R et al. showed the combination of pexidartinib and paclitaxel was generally well tolerated. RP2D for pexidartinib was 1600 mg/day. Pexidartinib blocked CSF-1R signaling, indicating potential for mitigating macrophage tumor infiltration. [Read the Full Post]

Sustained inhibition of receptor tyrosine kinases and macrophage depletion by PLX3397 and rapamycin as a potential new approach for the treatment of MPNSTs

91 views | Jul 18 2019

Patwardhan PP et al. suggested that PLX3397 is superior to imatinib in the treatment of MPNSTs, and the combination of PLX3397 with a TORC1 inhibitor could provide a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of this disease. [Read the Full Post]

TKI-Related Platelet Dysfunction Does Not Correlate With Bleeding in Patients With Chronic Phase-Chronic Myeloid Leukemia With Complete Hematological Response

276 views | Jun 21 2019

Sener Y et al. concluded that TKIs may impair in vitro platelet aggregation but this impairment is not associated with bleeding diathesis. [Read the Full Post]

Pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of imatinib in pediatric patients

0 views | Jan 22 2019

Suttorp M et al. indicated taht pharmacokinetic variables (e.g. alpha 1-acid glycoprotein binding, drug-drug/food-drug interactions via cytochrome P450 3A4/5, cellular uptake mediated via OCT-1-influx variations and P-glycoprotein-mediated drug efflux) still await to be addressed in pediatric patients systematically.

Suttorp M et al. indicated that adherence to imatinib intake may be the most prominent factor influencing treatment outcome in teenagers thus pointing towards the potential benefits of regular drug monitoring. [Read the Full Post]

The afatinib resistance of in vivo generated H1975 lung cancer cell clones is mediated by SRC/ERBB3/c-KIT/c-MET compensatory survival signaling

0 views | Nov 07 2018

Booth L et al. indicated that inhibition of ERBB3 signaling via both blockade of SRC and ERBB1 results in tumor cell death. [Read the Full Post]
