Cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdk) and their associated pathways represent some of the most attractive targets for the development of anticancer therapeutics. Based on antitumor activity in animal models, a variety of Cdk inhibitors are undergoing clinical evaluation either as a single agent or in combination with other approved drugs. In our anticancer drug(More)
P276-00, a flavone that inhibits cyclin-dependent kinases, has been identified by us recently as a novel antineoplastic agent. In this study, we have selected a panel of human tumor cell lines and xenografts to allow determination of selectivity and efficacy of P276-00. When tested against a panel of 16 cisplatin-sensitive and cisplatin-resistant cell(More)
P276-00 is a novel cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor especially potent for Cdk9-T1, Cdk4-D1 and Cdk1-B. Multiple myeloma (MM) is a B-cell malignancy characterized by the accumulation of malignant plasma cells. Treatment of MM cell lines with P276-00 resulted in apoptosis that correlated with transcription inhibition and a significant decline in Mcl-1(More)
P276-00 is a novel cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor currently in Phase II clinical trials. Gemcitabine is a standard of care for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. The present study investigated the effect of the combination of P276-00 and gemcitabine in five pancreatic cancer cell lines. Cytotoxic activity was evaluated by Propidium Iodide assay. Cell(More)
BACKGROUND P276-00 is a novel cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor is in Phase II clinical trials. Valproic acid (VPA), an antiepileptic agent has been associated with anticancer activity, through the inhibition of histone deacetylase I. Here we investigate the effect of the combination of VPA and P276-00, in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell(More)
In the present study, we show that the combination of doxorubicin with the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor P276-00 was synergistic at suboptimal doses in the non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cell lines and induces extensive apoptosis than either drug alone in H-460 human NSCLC cells. Synergistic effects of P276-00 and doxorubicin on growth inhibition(More)
Tumors of the head and neck present aggressive pathological behavior in patients due to high expression of CDK/CCND1 proteins. P276-00, a novel CDK inhibitor currently being tested in clinic, inhibits growth of several cancers in vitro and in vivo. The pre clinical activity of P276-00 in head and neck cancer and its potential mechanisms of action at(More)
We herein report the design and synthesis of furoquinoline based novel molecules (16-36) and their in vitro multiple targeted inhibitory potency against PI3K/Akt phosphorylation and mTOR using cell based and cell-free kinase assay. In particular, compound 23 in addition to PI3K-mTOR inhibitory potency, it has shown potent inhibition of hypoxia-induced(More)
Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a master regulator of the transcriptional response to hypoxia. It is essential for angiogenesis and is associated with tumor progression and overexpression of HIF-1α has been demonstrated in many common human cancers. Therefore, HIF-1α is one of the most compelling anticancer targets. To identify HIF-1α inhibitors,(More)
