  • SEL120−34A, a specific, potent and orally bioavailable inhibitor of CDK8, targets STAT-dependent gene transcription in leukemia and lymphoma models, poster board: P081, abstract #402.Poster reports the most recent results in the SEL120 project, showing that SEL120-34A shows high efficacy in leukemia models in vitro and in vivo, as well that the presented novel mechanism of action of the inhibitor involves changes in STAT-dependent gene transcription linked to inflammation and differentiation. Whats more, SEL120-34A shows favorable pharmacokinetic profile and safety indicating high therapeutic potential.
  • Development of selective MELK kinase inhibitors for breast cancer treatment, poster board: P132, abstract #453.Poster reports the most recent results of the program developed in cooperation with H3 Biomedicine, from Cambridge, MA.
