During rectal cancer treatment, patients receive neoadjuvant chemoradiation (CRT) irradiation which can exacerbate the hematologic toxicity (HT) via incidental irradiation of the pelvic bone(More)
Targeting KRAS and MYC has been a tremendous challenge in cancer drug development. Genetic studies in mouse models have validated the efficacy of silencing expression of both KRAS and MYC in mutant KRAS-driven tumors. We investigated the therapeutic potential of a new oligonucleotide-mediated gene silencing technology (U1 Adaptor) targeting KRAS and MYC in(More)
