EML4-ALK Cell Lines and In Vivo Models

The EML4-ALK fusion gene occurs in approximately 5% of non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs), making this oncogene an important drug target.  The development of ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitors (ALK-TKIs) has been a major advance in treating NSCLC with this fusion gene, but acquired resistance to ALK-TKIs ultimately limits their use.  To support the development of next-generation …Read More >

Leveraging Animal Models to Combat Drug Resistance in Cancer Therapy

Cancer, globally recognized as a significant threat to public health, can be effectively controlled in its early stages through chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy, all of which inhibit tumor growth. However, an inevitable challenge emerges over time as tumors develop drug resistance, resulting in treatment failure. Unraveling the underlying mechanisms of resistance is pivotal in overcoming …Read More >

Preclinical platform for nucleic acid drug evaluation: siRNA and mRNA therapeutics

SITC Poster #59: Since the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous nucleic-acid therapeutics have been approved for clinical use. Distinguished from conventional protein-targeted therapy, nucleic acid therapeutics offer the potential for sustained effects via gene modification or inhibition. In this study, we conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the activity and anti-tumor effects of PKN3-targeted siRNA …Read More >

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 >

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

SITC Poster #466: Mutant KRAS is linked to PD-L1 expression, and oncogenic RAS signaling promotes an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment by upregulating PD-L1 expression. Consequently, combining KRAS G12C inhibitors with immune checkpoint blockers shows promising benefits. To better understand the mechanisms underlying the combined inhibition of KRAS G12C inhibitor AMG 510, and anti-PD-1 antibody nivolumab, LU-01-0361 …Read More >
