While the apoptosis-inducing ligand Apo2L/TRAIL is a promising new agent for the treatment of cancer, the sensitivity of cancer cells for induction of apoptosis by Apo2L/TRAIL varies considerably. Identification of agents that can be used in combination with Apo2L/TRAIL to enhance apoptosis in breast cancer cells would increase the potential utility of this(More)
We and others have recently defined that Platelet Endothelial Cell Adhesion Molecule-1 (PECAM-1/CD31) functions as a negative regulator of platelet-collagen interactions involving the glycoprotein VI/Fc receptor gamma chain (GPVI/FcR-gamma chain) signaling pathway.1,2 In this study, we hypothesized that PECAM-1 may be physically and functionally associated(More)
Breast cancer is the most common carcinoma that metastasizes to bone. To examine the efficacy of recombinant soluble Apo2 ligand (Apo2L)/tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) against breast cancer growth in bone, we established a mouse model in which MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cells were transplanted directly into the marrow(More)
Apo2L/TRAIL is a promising new cancer therapeutic with demonstrated efficacy against a variety of malignancies.1 A number of recent studies have demonstrated the ability of different versions of recombinant Apo2L/TRAIL to inhibit both human and mouse osteoclastogenesis, and influence the survival of mature osteoclasts.2-4 Recent work by Zauli and colleagues(More)
