Hypoxia-Inducible PIM Kinase Expression Promotes Resistance to Antiangiogenic Agents.

Andrea L Casillas, Rachel K Toth, Alva G Sainz, Neha Singh, Ankit A Desai, Andrew S Kraft, Noel A Warfel,

Purpose: Patients develop resistance to antiangiogenic drugs, secondary to changes in the tumor microenvironment, including hypoxia. PIM kinases are prosurvival kinases and their expression increases in hypoxia. The goal of this study was to determine whether targeting hypoxia-induced PIM kinase expression is effective in combination with VEGF-targeting agents. The rationale ... Read more >>

PIM Kinase Inhibitors Kill Hypoxic Tumor Cells by Reducing Nrf2 Signaling and Increasing Reactive Oxygen Species.

Noel A Warfel, Alva G Sainz, Jin H Song, Andrew S Kraft,

Intratumoral hypoxia is a significant obstacle to the successful treatment of solid tumors, and it is highly correlated with metastasis, therapeutic resistance, and disease recurrence in cancer patients. As a result, there is an urgent need to develop effective therapies that target hypoxic cells within the tumor microenvironment. The Proviral ... Read more >>
