Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) is a receptor tyrosine kinase protein implicated in a variety of tumors, both solid and hematological. Few years ago crizotinib, an inhibitor of the receptor tyrosine kinases c-Met and ALK, demonstrated its activity in ALK positive non-small-cell lung cancer and other tumors with excellent toxicity profile. Subsequently several ALK inhibitors have been developed, offering new personalized treatment options. This review addresses some clinical considerations on the use of ALK...
Chronic myelogenous leukemia is associated with hematopoietic stem cells that are manifested primarily with expansion myelopoiesis. It is the first cancer directly associated with a genetic abnormality. Specifically, it is associated to a particular cytogenetic abnormality, known as Philadelphia chromosome (Ph), which results from a fusion between part of the BCR ("breakpoint cluster region") gene from chromosome 22 and the Abelson (ABL) gene on chromosome 9 and leads to the formation a new gene leukemia-sp...
Extensive molecular characterization of tumors has revealed that the activity of multiple signaling pathways is often simultaneously dampened or enhanced in cancer cells. Aberrant WNT signaling and tyrosine kinase signaling are two pathways that are frequently up- or downregulated in cancer. Although signaling pathways regulated by WNTs, tyrosine kinases, and other factors are often conceptualized as independent entities, the biological reality is likely much more complex. Understanding the mechanisms of cr...
The present systematic review summarizes current evidence regarding the mechanisms of action, the efficacy, and the adverse effects of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in ovarian cancer patients. Phase II and III clinical trials were sought in the PubMed database and in the Clinical Trials.gov registry through September 30, 2015. Seventy-five clinical trials regarding TKIs targeting mainly vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, epidermal growth factor receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor...
Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) is correlated with oncogenesis in different types of cancers, such as anaplastic large cell lymphoma, lung cancer, neuroblastoma, and even breast cancer, by abnormal fusion of ALK or non-fusion ALK activation. ALK is a receptor tyrosine kinase, with a single transmembrane domain, that plays an important role in development. Upon ligand binding to the extracellular domain, the receptor undergoes dimerization and subsequent autophosphorylation of the intracellular kinase domai...
We aimed to investigate the outcomes of interferon alfa and sequencing tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
Exon 19 deletion and L858R mutation in exon 21 of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are both common mutations that predict a good response to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the existence of clinically significant difference in sensitivity to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors among different EGFR mutation subtypes is still a matter of debate.
The role of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in the adjuvant treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has not been well established. Our meta-analysis aimed to determine whether the administration of EGFR-TKIs could improve the outcomes of patients with NSCLC undergoing complete resection.
As a rise in mean corpuscular volume (MCV) of the erythrocyte is frequently seen during treatment with imatinib and sunitinib, we investigated whether macrocytosis (MCV > 100 fl) also occurs as a class effect in other tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) and whether occurrence of macrocytosis is associated with outcome.
Next-generation epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have been developed to overcome resistance to earlier generations of such drugs mediated by a secondary T790M mutation of EGFR, but the performance of a second tumor biopsy to assess T790M mutation status can be problematic.
Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have increased survival dramatically for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), but continuous administration of these drugs may elicit long-term toxicity.
Tyrosine-kinase inhibitors improve overall survival in patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia in chronic phase (CML-CP). Survival compared with the general population by age, response, and type of tyrosine-kinase inhibitor is not known. With use of data from trials of tyrosine kinase inhibitors, we compared overall survival in patients with newly diagnosed CML-CP to that of general population.
Pooled Analysis of the Prognostic and Predictive Value of KRAS Mutation Status and Mutation Subtype in Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Treated with Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors.
This pooled analysis of four trials of epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR TKIs) versus placebo was conducted to clarify the prognostic and predictive roles of Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog (KRAS) mutations (MUTs) and to explore the importance of MUT subtype.
The clinical characteristics and survival of very young (≤40 years) and very old (>80years) patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are distinct. However, the benefits of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) to patients at the extremes of age with NSCLC harboring EGFR mutation have not been well studied. We retrospectively studied the effect of extreme age on patients' clinical characteristics and prognosis.
Adult patients with cancer receiving antineoplastic, targeted, and other immunosuppressive therapies are at risk for severe side effects. Studies link posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) with immunosuppressants used for patients undergoing transplantation, as well as select tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) and other targeted therapies used in patients with cancer. PRES is a reversible condition with early recognition and management; however, permanent neurologic toxicities have been reporte...
Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane glycoprotein that constitutes one of four members of the ErbB family of tyrosine kinase receptors. Activation of EGFR to leads to autophosphorylation of receptor tyrosine kinase that initiates a cascade of downstream signaling pathways involved in regulating cellular proliferation, differentiation, and survival. EGFR is abnormally activated by various mechanisms like receptor overexpression, mutation, ligand-dependent receptor dimerization, ligand-i...
Lung cancer still remains one of the major causes of cancer related mortality around the globe. Various different molecular targets have been discovered till date for targeting lung cancer. But not every new molecular target is having successfully designed inhibitor, moreover the conventional chemotherapeutics are having their own limitations such as toxicity, lack of selectivity. Thus, kinases still remain the most effective molecular target in lung cancer therapy. Also, once-shunned kinase inhibitors have...
Despite the success of BCR-ABL1 tyrosine kinase inhibitors in patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors remains a therapeutic challenge. A strategy to overcome resistance is to combine existing BCR-ABL1 tyrosine kinase inhibitors with agents that target alternative pathways. We report that inhibition of isoprenylcysteine carboxylmethyltransferase (Icmt), a key enzyme in the protein prenylation pathway, with a selective inhibitor termed cysmethynil enhances the e...
Deregulation of the receptor tyrosine kinase RET has been implicated in medullary thyroid cancer, a small percentage of lung adenocarcinomas, endocrine-resistant breast cancer and pancreatic cancer. There are several clinically approved multi-kinase inhibitors that target RET as a secondary pharmacology but additional activities, most notably inhibition of KDR, lead to dose-limiting toxicities. There is, therefore, a clinical need for more specific RET kinase inhibitors. Herein we report our efforts towards...
Epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI-EGFRs) present a new prospect for the treatment of lung cancer. However, in clinical application, the majority of patients become TKI resistant within a year. More and more studies have shown that a loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) expression is associated with TKI resistance. An alternative method of upregulating PTEN expression may reverse TKI resistance.
This study investigated whether mutations of receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) genes detected using next-generation sequencing (NGS) are suitable therapeutic targets.
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have emerged as first-line drugs for non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). However, the resistance to TKIs represents the key limitation for their therapeutic efficacy. We found that miR-26a was upregulated in gefitinib-refractory NSCLCs; miR-26a is downstream of EGFR signaling and directly targets and silences protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 13 (PTPN13) to maintain the activation of Src, a dephosphorylation su...
Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has improved considerably following the advent of biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). However, these drugs require special storage and transportation. Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors are oral synthetic DMARDs that inhibit the non-receptor tyrosine kinase family Janus kinase. Recently, many JAK inhibitors are being developed as new therapies for patients with RA.
