Colitis-Associated Cancer Mouse Model

The cumulative impact of chronic inflammation in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) predisposes them to the development of IBD-associated colorectal cancer. To support drug discovery research in this area, WuXi AppTec has developed a colitis-associated cancer mouse model to reflect the human colon’s carcinogenesis pattern derived from inflammation. Key features of this model include …Read More >

OncoWuXi Express: In Vitro Hydrogel-based 3D Tumor Models

Introduction: Over the last few years, the clinical success of immune checkpoint inhibitors has increasingly drawn attention to cancer therapies that target the tumor microenvironment (TME). TME consists of various cell types that are embedded in the extracellular matrix (ECM), including immune cells, endothelial cells, and cancer associated fibroblasts, all of which play critical roles …Read More >

Negative allosteric modulation of the µ-opioid receptor

DNA-encoded libraries from WuXi AppTec were used in a “steered” screening against either inactive or active μ-opioid receptors in parallel, to find novel negative allosteric modulators of this receptor. The molecule discovered via DEL screening not only shows direct and effective in vitro and in vivo potency, but also helps elucidate the mechanism of negative allosteric modulation of GPCRs. This discovery …Read More >

Combined Inhibition of KRAS G12C and PD1 Boosts Therapeutic Efficacy via Conditioning of Tumor Microenvironment

The G12C mutation is one of the most frequent KRAS mutations in non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and oncogenic RAS signaling has been shown to promote an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment by upregulating PD-L1 expression.  At SITC 2023, WuXi AppTec scientists presented a poster showing that combination therapy of the KRAS G12C inhibitor AMG 510 with …Read More >

Progress and Challenges in Tumor Vaccine Development

Introduction: Cancer is a major public health concern, and this disease is a leading cause of death worldwide. There are over 200 different types of cancer, and such complexity has slowed the rate of progress being made by researchers. Encouragingly, the emergence of immunotherapies, especially tumor vaccines, brings hope to cancer patients. Personalized tumor vaccines …Read More >
