In December the youngster started Aurora Kinase
treatment, just days after he drove down the aisle at his parents' wedding in his favourite remote controlled car.
Last week he started Aurora kinase
treatment at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
Scientists claim that the new drug, double-hits the AML cells and works by blocking the FLT3 gene and Aurora kinase
It is the first time young people aged six months to 18 with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) have received a pioneering class of drugs called aurora kinase
Among the topics are characterizing small-molecule kinase inhibitors in vivo, using analogue sensitive kinases and more specific kinase inhibitors as tools, kinase inhibitors in signal transduction therapy, aurora kinase
inhibitors as novel treatments for cancer, cellular protein kinases as antiviral targets, and prospects for tuberculosis therapeutics targeting Mycobacterium tubercolosis phosphosignaling networks.
Unlike other aurora kinase
inhibitors currently being studied, MLN8237 selectively targets aurora A Kinase and can be administered orally, Dr Matulonis said.
Researchers with US and European drug companies share insights into growth factor inhibitors VEDFR2, ERBB2, and other kinases; MEK inhibitors; the cell cycle kinase inhibitors Aurora kinase
and PLK inhibitors; and related topics.
is believed to function in signaling from unattached kinetochores to block progression to anaphase.
A lecture focusing on Aurora kinase
inhibitors will be presented today by Dr.
focuses specifically on an aurora kinase
inhibitor drug candidate, VX-680,
The report provides a competitor evaluation in the field of synthetic molecules targeting polo-like kinase 1 (Plk-1), cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) or aurora kinase
for treatment of cancer as of September 2011.
