Abstract Background: The treatment of high-risk neuroblastoma continues to present a formidable challenge to pediatric oncology. Previous studies have shown that BET (Bromodomain and extra-terminal) inhibitors can inhibit expression and suppress effects of combined BET/MEK inhibition on cell proliferation and apoptosis. Furthermore, we evaluated the effects of combined inhibition in Ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) neuroblastoma xenograft models. Results: Combined BET and MEK inhibition exhibited synergistic effects around the growth and survival of a large panel of neuroblastoma cell lines through augmentation of apoptosis. Combination therapy slowed tumor growth in a mutated neuroblastoma xenograft model, but had no efficacy in a Mouse monoclonal to CD32.4AI3 reacts with an low affinity receptor for aggregated IgG (FcgRII), 40 kD. CD32 molecule is expressed on B cells, monocytes, granulocytes and platelets. This clone also cross-reacts with monocytes, granulocytes and subset of peripheral blood lymphocytes of non-human primates.The reactivity on leukocyte populations is similar to that Obs setting but showed limited anti-tumor activity amplification occurs in approximately 40% of patients with high-risk neuroblastoma and is significantly correlated with poor prognosis, even in patients who have otherwise favorable disease features.1,2 Genetically Ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) engineered mouse and zebrafish models in which is overexpressed in the peripheral sympathetic nervous system develop tumors that closely recapitulate human neuroblastomas3,4. Previous investigations have exhibited that high gene signatures predict poor prognosis in patients with neuroblastoma, even Ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) in the absence of amplification.5,6 In support of these studies, a significant subset of non-solubility, and trametinib. To maximize the pre-clinical relevance of these studies, we examined a large panel of genomically annotated human neuroblastoma cell line models.29 The table summarizes status, alterations in the network (including mutations and status), and alterations in the network (including and status). As depicted in Table 1, there was a wide range in sensitivity to both brokers, with a median IC50 value for I-BET726 of 186 nM (range 25C1142 nM) and median IC50 value for trametinib of 91 nM (range 8C312400 nM), consistent with previous studies.24 There was no apparent correlation of I-BET726 cytotoxicity with status, whereas canonical MAPK mutations were enriched in the lines most sensitive to trametinib. Combination treatments were performed in a matrix design across a range of doses for each compound guided by single agent IC50 values, as previously described.26 As shown in Table 1, BET/MEK inhibition demonstrated synergy in 21/22 cases, with very strong or strong synergy in 10/22 neuroblastoma cell lines and moderate synergy or synergy in 11/22 cases. Notably, Ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) there was no clear biomarker identified that predicted synergy. Table 1. Effects of IBET-726 and trametinib alone and in combination across neuroblastoma cell line models annotated with clinically relevant mutations.Genomic analysis was performed utilizing a focused gene panel (Foundation Medicine platform). Cell lines are ranked according to synergy scores (most to least sensitive). Synergy values were determined by Chalice analysis of cell survival data obtained from CellTiter-Glo assays using a matrix treatment schedule from 1/4x-4x IC50 (+++++ very strong synergy; ++++ strong synergy; +++ synergy; ++ moderate synergy; + slight synergy; +/? additive, – antagonistic). wild-type and mutated (lossCof- function), respectively, as well as 2 non-wild-type and mutated, respectively (Table 1). Cells were treated with control, single agent, or combined treatment, and flow cytometry performed to determine cell cycle distribution (Physique 1). Both single agent and combined BET/MEK inhibition, to varying degrees, diminished progression through the cell cycle, increasing the percentage of cells in G0/G1 phase and reducing the percentage in S phase. This influence on cell cycle progression was most prominent in NLF, NBL-S, and SK-N-AS; it was less striking in SK-N-BE(2)C, which may be due in.
