Overexpression of the androgen receptor (AR) and anti-apoptotic genes including X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP) provide tumors with a proliferative advantage. Therefore, our objective was to determine whether novel antiandrogen (CBDIV17) and XIAP inhibitor based combination therapy can treat advanced prostate cancer. CBDIV17 and embelin-6g(More)
(3-(1H-indol-2-yl)phenyl)(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)methanone (I-387) is a novel synthetic compound that inhibits tubulin action and exhibits potent antitumor activity in various preclinical models. I-387 inhibited the in vitro growth of several human cancer cell lines with IC₅₀ values in the range of 15 to 39 nmol/L. Nanomolar concentrations of the compound(More)
Women experience a decline in estrogen and androgen levels following natural or surgically-induced menopause, effects that are associated with a loss of sexual desire and bone mineral density. Studies in our laboratories have shown the beneficial effects of SARMs in the treatment of osteoporosis and muscle-wasting in animal models. A series of
3-(1H-Indol-2-yl)phenyl)(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)methanone (I-387) is a novel indole compound with antitubulin action and potent antitumor activity in various preclinical models. I-387 avoids drug resistance mediated by P-glycoprotein and showed less neurotoxicity than vinca alkaloids during in vivo studies. We examined the pharmacokinetics and metabolism of(More)
