Erlotinib was originally developed as an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-specific inhibitor for the treatment of solid malignancies, yet also exerts significant EGFR-independent antileukemic effects in vitro and in vivo. The molecular mechanisms underlying the clinical antileukemic activity of erlotinib as a standalone agent have not yet been(More)
Artificial nutrition is necessary when oral feeding becomes insufficient to cover protein and energetic needs and becomes dangerous (risk of malnutrition, dehydration and aspiration). In ALS patients, enteral nutrition is the method of choice and gastrostomy is preferable to nasogastric tube which must be limited for a short term enteral nutrition or if(More)
Tyrosine kinases such as SRC family kinases (SFKs) as well as the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) serine/threonine kinase are often constitutively activated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and hence constitute potential therapeutic targets. Here we demonstrate that the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor erlotinib, which has previously(More)
The term myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) identifies a heterogeneous group of clonal disorders originating from bone marrow stem cells that often progress to acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The reference treatments for MDS include the DNA methyltransferase inhibitors azacytidine and decitabine. Recently, the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor(More)
Enteral nutrition is preferable in patients whose digestive tracts are not significantly affected by disease. Parenteral nutrition should be limited to patients with severe malabsorption due to anatomical or functional disorders, acute or chronic intestinal obstruction, and failure of properly implemented enteral nutrition. Enteral nutrition is possible in(More)
Initially, tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) were developed as targeted therapies that would solely interfere with aberrant tyrosine kinase activation in malignant cells. Nevertheless, preclinical and clinical studies demonstrated that TKI also exhibit "off-target" effects, that is effects not mediated by the assumed mechanisms of action. We and others(More)
