Novel Small-Molecule Integrin-linked Kinase/Phosphoinositide-dependent Protein Kinase-2 Inhibitors
TS-037647 — A novel set of molecules that inhibit integrin-linked kinase in order to suppress tumor cell growth and metastasis.
The Akt signaling pathway is responsible for apoptosis, cell proliferation, and metabolism. In tumor cells, this pathway is up-regulated and aids in promoting cancer cell survival. Complete activation of Akt pathway requires phosphorylation at two amino-acid residues, which are phosporylated by se…

Small-Molecule Cyclin D1 Ablative Agents for Breast Cancer Therapy
TS-015102 — A new class of small-molecule cyclin D1 ablative agents based on troglitazone (TG) that repress intracellular cyclin D1 levels.
Cyclin D1 represents an important downstream effector of diverse proliferative and transforming signaling pathways. In mammary cells, transcriptional activation of Cyclin D1 leads to G1/S phase progression and increased proliferation. Cyclin D1 overexpression has been implicated in oncogene-induce…

DNA Methylation Inhibitors
TS-015096 — A set of novel DNA methylation inhibitors that reduce DNA methylation by small molecule agents.
Substantial evidence indicates that DNA methylation-mediated silencing of tumor suppressor genes is a mechanism for the pathogenesis of cancer and many other diseases. Thus, small-molecule agents that target DNA methylation are considered a therapeutically relevant strategy for cancer treatment. T…

Small Molecule AR-Ablative Agents
TS-014842 — A new strategy for using androgen receptor ablative agents has been developed for prostate cancer therapy.
Hormone-refractory prostate cancer is incurable, and patients with this disease have few treatment options. Dysregulation of the androgen receptor (AR) is a hallmark of this incurable cancer. Molecular changes during cancer enhance AR sensitivity or permit AR activation by antiestrogen so that pro…

Novel Indole-3-Carbinol-Derived Antitumor Agents
TS-014815 — An anti-tumor agent developed from indol-3-carbinol, a naturally occurring phytochemical in cruciferous vegetables.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US at approximately 600,000 deaths per year. In addition, the National Cancer Institute estimates that nearly 1.7 million cases of cancer are diagnosed each year. A report from U.S. News …
