Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a major drug target in cancer and current inhibitors targeted to the ATP-binding pocket of the kinase domain have entered clinical trials. However, preliminary results have shown limited single-agent efficacy in patients. Despite these unfavorable data, the molecular mechanisms which drive intrinsic and acquired resistance to FAK-kinase inhibitors are largely unknown. We have demonstrated that receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) can directly bypass FAK-kinase inhibition in cancer...
Tyrosine kinase inhibitors like sunitinib and sorafenib are commonly used to treat metastatic renal cell cancer patients. Cubilin is a membrane protein expressed in the proximal renal tubule. Cubilin and megalin function together as endocytic receptors mediating uptake of many proteins. There is no established predictive marker for metastatic renal cell cancer patients and the purpose of the present study was to assess if cubilin can predict response to treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
In the nine years since the initial discovery of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene rearrangements in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), there has been tremendous progress, culminating in an ever-expanding repertoire of agents that have activity in this disease. This review article provides an overview of currently approved ALK inhibitors, other ALK inhibitors in development, and commonly described mechanisms of resistance to ALK inhibitors. We also discuss emerging controversies in treatment of patient...
Inhibitors of the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) MET have been ineffective at treating cancer, possibly because of lack of knowledge that would allow selection of tumors likely to respond to this treatment. In contrast, specific epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors have been used successfully against lung tumors displaying activating mutations in the kinase domain of EGFR. Recent publications describe a set of mutations causing MET exon 14 skipping, and importantly, several case reports descri...
KIT-directed tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as imatinib have demonstrated benefits in KIT-mutant (KIT+) mucosal, acral, vulvovaginal, and chronically sun-damaged (CSD) melanoma. Dasatinib has superior preclinical activity in comparison with other tyrosine kinase inhibitors against cells with the most common KIT mutation, exon 11(L576P) . The ECOG-ACRIN E2607 trial assessed dasatinib in patients with these melanoma subtypes.
The receptor tyrosine kinase fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3), involved in regulating survival, proliferation, and differentiation of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, is expressed on acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells in most patients. Mutations of FLT3 resulting in constitutive signaling are common in AML, including internal tandem duplication (ITD) in the juxtamembrane domain in 25% of patients and point mutations in the tyrosine kinase domain in 5%. Patients with AML with FLT3-ITD have a high relaps...
The New Zealand Pharmaceutical Management Agency (PHARMAC) approved funding of erlotinib in October 2010 as second line therapy in all non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer after platinum-based chemotherapy with no requirement for epidermal growth factor (EGFR) mutation testing. Funding widened in August 2012 to include gefitinib as first line treatment for patients with a proven EGFR mutation. Then in January 2014, both tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) were approved for first line treatment, but only fo...
Epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) are remarkably effective for treating EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the individual role of EGFR-TKIs in patients with brain metastasis (BM) arising from EGFR-mutant NSCLC remains unclear.
The hope of selectively targeting cancer cells by therapy and eradicating definitively malignancies is based on the identification of pathways or metabolisms that clearly distinguish "normal" from "transformed" phenotypes. Some tyrosine kinase activities, specifically unregulated and potently activated in malignant cells, might represent important targets of therapy. Consequently, tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) might be thought as the "vanguard" of molecularly targeted therapy for human neoplasias. Imati...
Malignancy is a major cause of mortality in dialysis patients. Although molecular-targeted anticancer drugs, including tyrosine-kinase inhibitors, are used for advanced renal cell carcinoma treatment, there are few reports on their effectiveness and safety in dialysis patients. Renal cell carcinoma dialysis patients treated at our hospital from 2010 to 2013 participated in this study. Thirteen patients were treated with tyrosine-kinase inhibitors and 15 patients with surgery only (control group). During tre...
Novel 4-benzylamino benzo-anellated pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridines have been synthesized with varied substitution patterns both at the molecular scaffold of the benzo-anellated ring and at the 4-benzylamino residue. With a structural similarity to substituted thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidines as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors, we characterized the inhibition of EGFR for our novel compounds. As receptor heterodimerization gained certain interest as mechanism of cancer cells to become resistant against no...
In-cell profiling enables the evaluation of receptor tyrosine activity in a complex environment of regulatory networks that affect signal initiation, propagation and feedback. We used FGF-receptor signaling to identify EGR1 as a locus that strongly responds to the activation of a majority of the recognized protein kinase oncogenes, including 30 receptor tyrosine kinases and 154 of their disease-associated mutants. The EGR1 promoter was engineered to enhance trans-activation capacity and optimized for simple...
The evolution of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors has changed the landscape of disease for a subset of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Most patients with an EGFR mutation respond to these drugs, however a proportion show limited or no tumour response. We explored the impact of co-mutation (double or multiple mutation), compared with single mutation, of the EGFR gene on response to TKIs in a series of patients with metastatic NSCLC.
The impact of cancer therapies on cardiac disease in the general adult cancer survivor population is largely unknown. Our objective was to evaluate which tyrosine kinase-targeting drugs are associated with greater risk for new-onset heart failure (HF).
The management of advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) has been modified considerably by the availability of costly tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs); however, the best therapeutic sequence in terms of cost and effectiveness remains unknown.
Post translational modifications (PTMs) are involved in variety of cellular activities and phosphorylation is one of the most extensively studied PTM, which regulates a number of cellular functions like cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis and cell signaling in healthy condition. However, alterations in phosphorylation pathways result in serious outcomes in the form of diseases, especially cancer. Many signalling pathways including Tyrosine kinase, MAP kinase, Cadherin-catenin complex, Cyclin-dependent k...
Transient receptor potential melastatin 7 (TRPM7) regulates breast cancer cell proliferation, migration, invasion and metastasis in its ion channel- and kinase domain-dependent manner. The pharmacological effects of TRPM7 ion channel inhibitors on breast cancer cells have been studied, but little is known about the effects of TRPM7 kinase domain inhibitors due to lack of potent TRPM7 kinase inhibitors.
The authors' previous study demonstrated that the B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia/lymphoma (Bcl-2)-like 11 (BCL2L11) (Bim) deletion polymorphism was associated with poor clinical response to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR mutations. The objective of the current study was to investigate the impact of the Bim deletion polymorphism among patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive or ROS proto-onco...
Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) molecular analysis is performed to assess the responsiveness to Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) in patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). The existence of molecular intra-tumoral heterogeneity has been observed in lung cancers. The aim of the present study is to investigate if the percentage of mutated neoplastic cells within the tumor sample might influence the responsiveness to TKIs treatment.
The human EGFR family consists of four type-1 transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptors: HER1 (EGFR, ErbB1), HER2 (Neu, ErbB2), HER3 (ErbB3), and HER4 (ErbB4). HER3 can dimerize with EGFR, HER2 and even c-Met and likely plays a central role in the response to EGFR-targeted therapy. Because HER3 lacks significant kinase activity and cannot be inhibited by tyrosine kinase inhibitors, neutralizing antibodies and alternative inhibitors of HER3 have been sought as cancer therapeutics. Here, we describe the stable ...
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutation is a reliable predictive factor for response to EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). The quantified EGFR value may also predict response and survival within an EGFR mutated group.
The introduction of first- and second-generation EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) (gefitinib, erlotinib and afatinib) for the treatment of advanced EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has dramatically improved patients' prognosis and quality of life (QoL). Unfortunately, after an initial and sometimes durable benefit from EGFR-TKI therapy, all patients with EGFR-mutant lung cancer eventually become resistant to the treatment and experience disease progression. In approximately 50% of these ...
Frequent molecular monitoring (qPCR tests), as recommended by evidence-based monitoring guidelines, is associated with higher adherence to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in the management of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML); both factors have been associated with better clinical and economic outcomes.
