Novel TIE-2 inhibitor BAY-826 displays in vivo efficacy in experimental syngeneic murine glioma models


Schneider, H; Szabo, E; Machado, R A C; Broggini-Tenzer, A; Walter, A; Lobell, M; Heldmann, D; Süssmeier, F; Grünewald, S; Weller, M (2017). Novel TIE-2 inhibitor BAY-826 displays in vivo efficacy in experimental syngeneic murine glioma models. Journal of Neurochemistry, 140(1):170-182.

Abstract

Targeting the vascular endothelial growth factor signaling axis in glioblastoma inevitably leads to tumor recurrence and a more aggressive phenotype. Therefore, other angiogenic pathways, like the angiopoietin/tunica interna endothelial cell kinase (TIE) signaling axis, have become additional targets for therapeutic intervention. Here, we explored whether targeting the receptor tyrosine kinase TIE-2 using a novel, highly potent, orally available small molecule TIE-2 inhibitor (BAY-826) improves tumor control in syngeneic mouse glioma models. BAY-826 inhibits TIE-2 phosphorylation in vitro and in vivo as demonstrated by suppression of Angiopoietin-1- or Na3 VO4 -induced TIE-2 phosphorylation in glioma cells or extracts of lungs from BAY-826-treated mice. There was a trend toward prolonged survival upon single-agent treatment in two of four models (SMA-497 and SMA-540) and there was a significant survival benefit in one model (SMA-560). Co-treatment with BAY-826 and irradiation was ineffective in one model (SMA-497), but provided synergistic prolongation of survival in another (SMA-560). Decreased vessel densities and increased leukocyte infiltration were observed, but might be independent processes as the effect was also observed in single treatment modalities. These data demonstrate that TIE-2 inhibition may improve tumor response to treatment in highly vascularized tumors such as glioblastoma.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
