prostate cancer (CRPC)
tissue studies suggest a combination of Src and MEK family
inhibitors could be useful for treating metastatic CRPC. Proteomic analysis
of phosphoproteins from 41 CRPC metastases in 17 patients identified patterns
of phosphorylation across multiple metastatic lesions from individual
patients. In a subset of 16 metastatic lesions, kinase activation predicted sensitivity
to combined Src and MEK family inhibition in about 69% of patients. Next
steps could include clinical testing of a combination of Src and MEK
plc and Japan
Tobacco Inc. market the MAP kinase
kinase 1 (MAP2K1;
At least six other MEK inhibitors are in Phase II or
Phase III testing for various cancers.
Squibb Co. and Otsuka
Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.'s Sprycel
which inhibit Src as well as BCR-ABL
tyrosine kinase, are marketed for hematological
At least four other kinase inhibitors targeting Src are in Phase I and Phase
II testing for various cancers.
