Differential sensitivity of glioma- versus lung cancer-specific EGFR mutations to EGFR kinase inhibitors.
This work demonstrates selective sensitivity of glioma-specific EGFR mutants to ATP-site competitive EGFR kinase inhibitors that target the inactive conformation of the catalytic domain and provides first evidence for single kinase addiction in GBM.
Requirement of HDAC6 for Transforming Growth Factor-β1-induced Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition*
It is reported that HDAC6 is a novel modulator of TGF-β1-induced EMT and a potential therapeutic target against pathological EMT, a key event for tumor progression and fibrogenesis.
Augmentation of NVP-BEZ235's anticancer activity against human lung cancer cells by blockage of autophagy
Induction of autophagy by BEZ235 appears to be a survival mechanism that may counteract its anticancer effects, and a strategy is suggested to enhance BEz235's anticancer efficacy by blockade ofAutophagy.

PP2A-dependent and DNA-PK-mediated mechanism is involved in rapamycin-induced Akt phosphorylation and a novel strategy to enhance mTOR-targeted cancer therapy by co-targeting DNA- PK is suggested.
The combination of RAD001 and NVP-BKM120 synergistically inhibits the growth of lung cancer in vitro and in vivo.

A sensitive, accurate and simple liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method to quantify AMB in human or minipig plasma and has been validated and applied for AMB pharmacokinetic study in both human and minipigs plasma.
Acridine Yellow G Blocks Glioblastoma Growth via Dual Inhibition of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor and Protein Kinase C Kinases*
Acridine yellow G is a potent anti-tumor agent for malignant gliomas and combinatorial inhibition of EGFR and PKCs might provide proof of concept in developing therapeutic agents for treating malignantglioma and other human cancers.
c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase-dependent upregulation of DR5 mediates cooperative induction of apoptosis by perifosine and TRAIL
The combination of perifosine and TRAIL was more active than each single agent alone in inducing apoptosis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cells and inhibiting the growth of xenografts.
Long Noncoding RNA HOX Transcript Antisense Intergenic RNA (HOTAIR) as a Foe and Novel Potential Therapeutic Target for Endometrial Carcinoma
Findings demonstrated that HOTAIR may serve as a novel diagnostic and prognostic marker and may be used as a therapeutic target for the treatment of endometrial carcinoma, and demonstrated that response to treatment is highly dependent on both grade and stage.
