We investigated the effect of a novel Wnt/β-catenin signaling inhibitor, AV65 on imatinib mesylate (IM)-sensitive and -resistant human chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells in vitro. AV65 inhibited the proliferation of various CML cell lines including T315I mutation-harboring cells. AV65 reduced the expression of β-catenin in CML cells, resulting in the(More)
Hormone-independent human breast cancer is characterized by estrogen receptor (ER) loss and the acquisition of high epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) levels. Despite the tendency for an inverse correlation between EGFR and ER, EGFR is a strong prognostic indicator for poor survival rate independent of ER status suggesting that EGFR overexpression is(More)
Progress in cancer treatment has been slow, and the outlook for curing cancer is only marginally different from the situation a decade ago. Paradoxically, although the pharmaceutical industry has stepped up costly discovery research and drug development, approvals are on the decline and pipelines are dwindling. In an effort to reduce the number of drug(More)
