Contribution of the bone marrow stromal cells in mediating drug resistance in hematopoietic tumors.

Wei-Chih Chen, Gangqing Hu, Lori A Hazlehurst,

The bone marrow microenvironment (BMM) provides input via production of cytokines, chemokines, extracellular matrixes in the context of lower oxygen levels that influences self-renewal, survival, differentiation, progression, and therapeutic resistance of multiple myeloma and leukemic cells. Within the context of the BMM, tumor cells are supported by osteoblasts, bone marrow ... Read more >>

Rachel K Toth, Jack D Tran, Michelle T Muldong, Eric A Nollet, Veronique V Schulz, Corbin C Jensen, Lori A Hazlehurst, Eva Corey, Donald Durden, Christina Jamieson, Cindy K Miranti, Noel A Warfel,

Bone-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is lethal due to inherent resistance to androgen deprivation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapies. Despite the fact that a majority of CRPC patients (approximately 70%) harbor a constitutively active PI3K survival pathway, targeting the PI3K/mTOR pathway has failed to increase overall survival in clinical trials. ...
