Raf kinase inhibitors in oncology.

The importance of the MAP kinase pathway, which includes the kinases Raf, MEK1/2, and ERK1/2, for the proliferation and survival of tumor cells recently increased with the discovery of activating BRAF mutations in human tumors. Therefore, in addition to a role in controlling tumors with Ras mutations and activated growth factor receptors, inhibitors of Raf… CONTINUE READING
