Molecular annotated patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models are useful for the preclinical investigation of anticancer drugs and individualized anticancer therapy. We established 23 PDXs from 88 surgical specimens of lung cancer patients and determined gene mutations in these PDXs and their paired primary tumors by ultradeep exome sequencing on 202(More)
Auranofin, a gold complex that has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis in clinics and has documented pharmacokinetic and safety profiles in humans, has recently been investigated for its anticancer activity in leukemia and some solid cancers. However, auranofin's single agent activity in lung cancer is not well characterized. To determine whether(More)
The small molecule anticancer agent NSC-743380 modulates functions of multiple cancer-related pathways and is highly active in a subset of cancer cell lines in the NCI-60 cell line panel. It also has promising in vivo anticancer activity. However, the mechanisms underlying NSC-743380's selective anticancer activity remain uncharacterized. To determine(More)
Through synthetic lethality screening of isogenic cell lines with and without the oncogenic KRAS gene and through lead compound optimization, we recently developed a novel anticancer agent designated NSC-743380 (oncrasin-72) that has promising in vitro and in vivo anticancer activity in a subset of cancer cell lines, including KRAS-mutant cancer cells.(More)
Case retrieval is the focal stage of Case-Based Reasoning systems whose quality is determined by the speed and accuracy of retrieva1. In this work, we aim at developing a better Case retrieval algorithm by using vector model and propose its new case retrieval Algorithm based on Structure Matrix, wich is derived to learn the kernel matrix for capturing the(More)
