The Trk tyrosine kinase inhibitor CEP-701 (KT-5555) exhibits significant antitumor efficacy in preclinical xenograft models of human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.


The aggressive behavior and poor prognosis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is associated with an increased expression of many growth factors and their cognate receptors. We have previously demonstrated the aberrant expression of the Trk receptors (Trks A, B, and C), enhanced tumor stromal expression of neurotrophins in primary PDAC specimens and… (More)
