Abstract Text This study focuses on determining whether the combination of NYP-BKM120 (BKM120) and RAD001 exerts enhanced therapeutic effect against lung cancer. The combination of BKM120 and RAD001 exerted synergistic inhibitory effects on the growth of lung cancer cells both in culture and in mouse xenograft model. This combination abrogated RAD001-induced Akt phosphorylation and exerted enhanced suppressive effect on 4EBP1 phosphorylation. Collectively, we suggest that the combination of RAD001 and BKM120 may be an effective regimen for treatment of lung cancer, hence warranting further evaluation of the combination in the clinic.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
