BACKGROUND Combinations of drug treatments based on bortezomib or lenalidomide plus steroids have resulted in very high response rates in multiple myeloma. However, most patients still relapse, indicating the need for novel combination partners to increase duration of response or to treat relapsed disease. We explored the antimyeloma activity of triple(More)
Despite the advantage observed with novel drugs such as bortezomib, thalidomide, or lenalidomide, multiple myeloma (MM) remains incurable and there is a clear need for new drugs or combinations based on the pathogenetic mechanism of MM. One of the proposed mechanisms in MM pathogenesis is the involvement of kinase molecules in the growth and survival of(More)
Although it has been widely accepted that Mg has a positive effect on muscle function, studies on the efficacy of Mg supplementation in young athletes have generated contrasting results. The aim of this work was to examine the effect of Mg supplementation on muscular damage markers and the association between serum Mg levels with these muscular markers.(More)
The development of resistance to therapy is unavoidable in the history of multiple myeloma patients. Therefore, the study of its characteristics and mechanisms is critical in the search for novel therapeutic approaches to overcome it. This effort is hampered by the absence of appropriate preclinical models, especially those mimicking acquired resistance.(More)
BACKGROUND Although the majority of patients with acute myeloid leukemia initially respond to conventional chemotherapy, relapse is still the leading cause of death, probably because of the presence of leukemic stem cells that are insensitive to current therapies. We investigated the antileukemic activity and mechanism of action of zalypsis, a novel(More)
