Kras mutant lung cancer treatment

Objective: The primary objective of this review is to critically summarize the current developmental state of MEK and ERK inhibitors in pre-clinical models and in human clinical trials for KRAS mutant lung cancer particularly in light of the newly emerging concept of immune checkpoint blockade.

In addition, human KRAS‐mutant lung cancer cell lines harboring NF1 mutations (i.e., H2030 and H2347) showed marked sensitivity to glutaminase and PSAT1 inhibition, while those with WT NF1 (i.e., H23, H2009, and H1792) displayed less sensitivity (Fig 4E). Designing the first inhibitors of the cancer-causing mutant KRAS G12C was a painstaking process of trial and error, culminating in some of the most closely watched candidates in the drug industry ...

New Mesothelioma Treatment for KRAS-positive Lung Cancer Might Also be a Potential Treatment for Mesothelioma. It is not a secret that treatment of KRAS-positive lung cancer can be very challenging, with the disease considered as among the most aggressive forms of lung cancer. Jan 31, 2017 · Treatment-related peripheral neuropathy occurred in 25% of patients (3 patients with grade 1, 1 patient with grade 2). Conclusions: In patients with KRAS G12D mutant lung cancers, bortezomib was associated with modest anti-tumor activity and durable disease control in a small subset of patients. Further investigation into predictive biomarkers ... Mar 24, 2015 · The aim of the present retrospective study was to analyze clinical outcome and risk factors associated with treatment outcomes according to KRAS status in patient with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) treated with bevacizumab (bev) plus chemotherapy in the first-line setting. Unfortunately, little progress has been made in the treatment of patients with the most frequently observed driver oncogene, mutant KRAS. KRAS is mutated in approximately 25% of all NSCLC, and patients with this mutation have an increased risk of recurrence in early stage disease and have a worse prognosis with metastatic disease. Jul 28, 2016 · Researchers have identified a new way to target lung cancer through the KRAS gene, one of the most commonly mutated genes in human cancer and one researchers have so far had difficulty targeting ...

"Based on the synergy between FAK and MEK inhibitors observed in preclinical KRAS mutant models, we have been assessing the combination of defactinib and CH5126766 for treatment of patients with ... RAS mutations are frequent in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, targeting RAS or the downstream/upstream effectors, such as tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), has been proved to be difficult. Here, we found that the stemness of KRAS-mutant NSCLC cells but not the KRAS-wild type NSCLC ... Apr 30, 2015 · BRAF mutation as a biomarker in colorectal cancer Anna M Varghese Leonard B Saltz Department of Medicine, Division of Solid Tumor Oncology, Gastrointestinal Oncology Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA Abstract: Nearly 10% of colorectal cancers (CRCs) harbor mutations in BRAF. Apr 14, 2017 · KRAS G12C mutation as a poor prognostic marker of pemetrexed treatment in non-small cell lung cancer Sehhoon Park 1, * , Ji-Yeon Kim 1, * , Se-Hoon Lee 1 , Beomseok Suh 2 , Bhumsuk Keam 1 , Tae Min Kim 1 , Dong-Wan Kim 1 , Dae Seog Heo 1 The success of EGFR and ALK inhibitor therapies in lung cancer patients with EGFR mutations and EML4-ALK translocations initiated the era of targeted therapy in advanced NSCLC [5,8] and shifted treatment from platinum-based chemotherapy to molecularly targeted therapy. Objective: The primary objective of this review is to critically summarize the current developmental state of MEK and ERK inhibitors in pre-clinical models and in human clinical trials for KRAS mutant lung cancer particularly in light of the newly emerging concept of immune checkpoint blockade.
