Targeting BCR tyrosine177 site with novel SH2-DED causes selective leukemia cell death in vitro and in vivo.

Abstract

Emergence of resistance to imatinib mesylate complicates the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors are capable to overcome resistance mediated by most mutations except T315I. As this mutation is causative for 20% of clinically observed resistances, the need for novel treatment strategies becomes obvious… (More)
