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...
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.
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.
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) mutations occur more frequently in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of women, never smokers, Asian population and those with adenocarcinoma. Short in-frame deletion in exon 19 and L858R substitution are the most common mutations, which are closely associated with EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) treatment response. However, the therapeutic effects of EGFR-TKIs on NSCLC with uncommon EGFR mutation subtypes remain unclear. The aim of this study is to investigate...
Targeted therapies have appeared as new treatment options for several disease types, including cancer and autoimmune disorders. Of several targets, tyrosine kinases (TKs) are among the most promising. Overexpression of TKs provides a target for novel therapeutic agents, including small molecule inhibitors of tyrosine kinases (TKI). Ibrutinib (PCI-32765) is a TKI of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk), a key kinase of the B-cell receptor signaling pathway that plays a significant role in the proliferation, differ...
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...
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.
Patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation-positive nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) develop resistance during therapy with EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). In about half of the patients, this resistance is because of the emergence of the T790M mutation. Third-generation TKIs are active against EGFR-activating mutations and the T790M resistance mutation and have only limited efficacy against wild-type EGFR. Here we review the current status of the clinical development of these no...
Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD) is frequently detected in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients and is associated with a dismal long-term prognosis. FLT3 tyrosine kinase inhibitors provide short-term disease control, but relapse invariably occurs within months. Pim protein kinases are oncogenic FLT3-ITD targets expressed in AML cells. We show that increased Pim kinase expression is found in relapse samples from AML patients treated with FLT3 inhibitors. Ectopic Pim-2 expres...
Recently developed tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) offer first-line alternatives to patients with chronic myeloid leukemia. While these medications are generally well tolerated, cutaneous reactions occur frequently and can present a management challenge. We describe a newly recognized skin reaction to dasatinib and nilotinib and extend it to the newer agent ponatinib.
