Head and neck cancer;
Retinoid X receptor (RXR);
acid receptor-g (RARG)
In vitro and mouse studies suggest combining RXR and RARG
agonists could help prevent oral and esophageal squamous cell carcinomas. In
a mouse model of oral carcinogenesis, an RARG agonist plus the RXR agonist Targretin
decreased the number of malignant lesions and their severity compared with
the RARG agonist alone or no treatment. The agonists also decreased markers
of cancer and oxidative stress compared with no treatment. Next steps could
include evaluating the combination strategy in additional cancer models.
Co. Ltd. markets Targretin to treat cutaneous T cell
Co. Ltd. has the oral RARG and RXR agonist peretinoin
in Phase III testing to treat liver cancer.
Therapeutics Inc. has the RXR agonist IRX4204
in Phase II or earlier testing to treat various cancers.
Pharmaceuticals Inc. have the RARG agonist palovarotene
in Phase II testing to treat musculoskeletal indications.
