Chimeric immune receptors (CIR) encompass tumor- or virus-specific ligands or antibodies fused to the signaling domains of either the T cell receptor or Fc receptor. T cells expressing these receptors recapitulate the cytopathic effects mediated by the T cell receptor and allow the targeting of tumor or virus infected cells in an MHC-independent manner.(More)
As a continuation of our efforts to discover novel apoptosis inducers as anticancer agents using a cell-based caspase HTS assay, 2-phenyl-oxazole-4-carboxamide derivatives were identified. The structure-activity relationships of this class of molecules were explored. Compound 1k, with EC(50) of 270 nM and GI(50) of 229 nM in human colorectal DLD-1 cells,(More)
