Targeting MYC sensitizes malignant mesothelioma cells to PAK blockage-induced cytotoxicity

American Journal of Cancer Research 2017 August [Link] Tan Y, Sementino E, Chernoff J, Testa JR Abstract Clinical management of malignant mesothelioma (MM) is very challenging due to marked resistance of this tumor to chemotherapy. Various mechanisms lead to a less than ideal drug concentration inside of MM cells, diminishing cytotoxicity. Consequently, single cytotoxic drugs […]

Combination of onconase and dihydroartemisinin synergistically suppresses growth and angiogenesis of non-small-cell lung carcinoma and malignant mesothelioma

Acta Biochemica et Biophysica Sinica 2016 September 2 [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Shen R, Li J, Ye D, Wang Q, Fei J Abstract Onconase (Onc) is a cytotoxic ribonuclease derived from leopard frog oocytes or early embryos, and has been applied to the treatment of malignant mesothelioma in clinics. Onc also exhibits effective growth […]

Calpeptin Prevents Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Cell Proliferation via the Angiopoietin1/Tie2 System

Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention 2016 [Link] Tabata C1, Tabata R, Nakano T Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), an aggressive malignant tumor of mesothelial origin associated with asbestos exposure, shows a limited response to conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Therefore, the overall survival of MPM patients remains very poor. Progress in the development of therapeutic […]

Progranulin and granulin-like protein as novel VEGF-independent angiogenic factors derived from human mesothelioma cells

Oncogene 2016 June 27 [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Eguchi R, Nakano T, Wakabayashi I. Abstract Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive tumor arising from the mesothelial cells of serous membranes and is associated with tumor angiogenesis, which is a prerequisite for tumor progression. Vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) including VEGF-A have a crucial role in […]
