AT-101 induces apoptosis in CLL B cells and overcomes stromal cell-mediated Mcl-1 induction and drug resistance.

Abstract

Resistance to apoptosis in CLL B cells is associated with overexpression of Bcl-2 family antiapoptotic proteins. Their expression is endogenous, but is also induced by signals from the microenvironment resulting in intrinsic and extrinsic drug resistance. Because AT-101 binds to the BH3 motif of all Bcl-2-family antiapoptotic proteins, we hypothesized that… (More)
