Modeling targeted inhibition of MEK and PI3 kinase in human pancreatic cancer.

Activating mutations in the KRAS oncogene occur in approximately 90% of pancreatic cancers, resulting in aberrant activation of the MAPK and the PI3K pathways, driving malignant progression. Significant efforts to develop targeted inhibitors of nodes within these pathways are underway and several are currently in clinical trials for patients with KRAS… (More)
