Side effects not a major problem for new class of breast cancer drugs

(Wiley) A ground-breaking new class of oral drugs for treating breast cancer, known as cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors, are generally well-tolerated, with a manageable toxicity profile for most patients.

Conclusions: Saliva contains molecular information worthy of interrogation via EWAS. The simplicity of specimen collection suggests that saliva offers a practical alternative to blood for measurements that can be used to characterize individual exposomes. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1011 Received: 23 August 2016 Revised: 08 November 2016 Accepted: 18 November 2016 Published: 20 July 2017 Address correspondence to V.

Conclusions: These results demonstrate the possibility to predict large-scale mixture effects for endocrine disrupters with a predictive toxicology approach that is suitable for high-throughput ranking and risk assessment. The size of the effects predicted is consistent with an increased risk of infertility in women from everyday exposures to our chemical environment. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP742 Received: 30 June 2016 Revised: 07 December 2016 Accepted: 24 February 2017 Published: 19 July 2017 Address correspondence to F.Y.

Abstract Aberrations of the cell cycle are pervasive in cancer, and selective cell cycle inhibition of cancer cells is a target of choice for a number of novel cancer therapeutics. Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) are key regulatory enzymes that control cell cycle transitions and the commitment to cell division. Palbociclib and ribociclib are both orally active, highly selective reversible inhibitors of CDK4 and CDK6 that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer in combination with specific endocrine therapies. A third oral CDK4/6 inhibitor, ...

EXEMESTANE LOADED ALGINATE NANOPARTICLES FOR CANCER TREATMENT: FORMULATION AND IN VITRO EVALUATION. Int J Biol Macromol. 2017 Jul 12;: Authors: Joseph JJ, Sangeetha D Abstract Alginate, a biopolymer is most useful for anticancer drug delivery, because of it is biocompatible, nontoxic, biodegradable and exploiting ligand-receptor interaction. Breast cancer is spreading very fast due to the changing food habits and environmental causes. Exemestane (EXE) an oral chemotherapeutic drug was used to treat breast cancer, while loading EXE in alginate nanoparticles, the side effects which was faced during admi...
