Nilotinib significantly induces apoptosis in imatinib resistant K562 cells with wild-type BCR-ABL, as effectively as in parental sensitive counterparts
(Taylor & Francis, 2010-02)
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematological malignancy characterized by high levels of immature white blood cells. CML is caused by the translocation between chromosomes 9 and 22 (which results in the formation of ...
Mechanisms responsible for nilotinib resistance in human chronic myeloid leukemia cells and reversal of resistance
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-06)
Multidrug resistance remains a significant obstacle to successful chemotherapy. The ability to determine the possible resistance mechanisms and surmount the resistance is likely to improve chemotherapy. Nilotinib is a very ...
Roles of ceramide synthase and ceramide clearence genes in nilotinib-induced cell death in chronic myeloidleukemia cells
(Informa Healthcare, 2011-08)
In this study, we aimed to increase the sensitivity of human K562 and Meg-01 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells to nilotinib by targeting bioactive sphingolipids, in addition to investigating the roles of ceramide ...
miR-17 in imatinib resistance and response to tyrosine kinase inhibitors in chronic myeloid leukemia cells
(Zerbinis Medical Publications, 2013-04)
In this study we examined the expression levels of miR-17 which possesses oncogenic activities through downregulation of CDKN1A, p21 and E2F1 tumor suppressor genes, in imatinib sensitive and resistant chronic myeloid ...
Macromolecular changes in nilotinib resistant k562 cells; An in vitro study by fourier transform infrared spectroscopy
(SAGE Publications, 2012-08)
Nilotinib is a second generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor which is used in both first and second line treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). In the present work, the effects of nilotinib resistance on K562 cells ...
Nilotinib does not alter the secretory functions of carotid artery endothelial cells in a prothrombotic or antithrombotic fashion
(SAGE Publications, 2015-10)
Background: There have been concerns about the possible prothrombotic effects of nilotinib, especially in patients having cardiovascular risk factors. The potential mechanism behind the increased risk of thromboembolic ...
