Small cell lung cancer is initially highly responsive to cisplatin and etoposide but in almost every case becomes rapidly chemoresistant, leading to death within 1 year. We modeled acquired chemoresistance in vivo using a series of patient-derived xenografts to generate paired chemosensitive and chemoresistant cancers. Multiple chemoresistant models(More)
Inhibitors of the protein methyltransferase Enhancer of Zeste Homolog 2 (EZH2) may have significant therapeutic potential for the treatment of B cell lymphomas and other cancer indications. The ability of the scientific community to explore fully the spectrum of EZH2-associated pathobiology has been hampered by the lack of in vivo-active tool compounds for(More)
Novel chiral cyclohexylaryl amines were developed with potent reuptake inhibition against the serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine transporters and activity at 10 and 30 mpk PO in the mouse tail suspension test. Prototype compound 31 (SERT, NET, DAT IC(50) ≤ 1, 21, 28 nM) was highly brain penetrant, had minimal CYP and hERG inhibition, and represents a(More)
Demethylation of histones by lysine demethylases (KDMs) plays a critical role in controlling gene transcription. Aberrant demethylation may play a causal role in diseases such as cancer. Despite the biological significance of these enzymes, there are limited assay technologies for study of KDMs and few quality chemical probes available to interrogate their(More)
The current work discloses a novel cyclohexylarylamine chemotype with potent inhibition of the serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine transporters and potential for treatment of major depressive disorder. Optimized compounds 1 (SERT, NET, DAT, IC(50)=169, 85, 21 nM) and 42 (SERT, NET, DAT IC(50)=34, 295, 90 nM) were highly brain penetrant, active in vivo(More)
The SWI/SNF complex is a major regulator of gene expression and is increasingly thought to play an important role in human cancer, as evidenced by the high frequency of subunit mutations across virtually all cancer types. We previously reported that in preclinical models, malignant rhabdoid tumors, which are deficient in the SWI/SNF core component INI1(More)
OBJECTIVE Among mental health outcome measures that have been developed for routine use, most of the information concerns the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales (HoNOS). This instrument is widely used in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, but not in Canada. We tested its sensitivity and predictive validity under conditions that would resemble, as closely(More)
