Abstract Text The aggressive behavior and poor prognosis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is associated with an increased expression of many growth factors and their cognate receptors. We have previously demonstrated the aberrant expression of the Trk receptors (Trks A, B, and C), enhanced tumor stromal expression of neurotrophins in primary PDAC specimens and human PDAC-derived cell lines, and a dose-dependent biological response of PDAC cells (in vitro invasiveness) to selective neurotrophins (Miknyoczki, S. J., et al., Int. J. Cancer, 81: 417-427, 1999). On the basis of these data, we have evaluated the therapeutic potential of inhibiting neurotrophin-Trk interactions using a selective and potent Trk tyrosine kinase inhibitor (CEP-701) in several preclinical models of human PDAC. CEP-701 is currently approved for clinical trials within the United States We demonstrate that CEP-701 administration at 10 mg/kg s.c. b.i.d. 5 days a week for 21-28 days inhibited tumor growth in a statistically significant manner in Panc-1, AsPc-1, BxPc-3, Colo 357, and MiaPaCa2 s.c. xenografts in athymic nude mice compared with vehicle-treated controls. Reductions in tumor growth volume of 50-70% relative to vehicle-treated controls were observed in xenografts responsive to CEP-701 administration. Significant reductions of in vivo PDAC tumor invasiveness were likewise observed in four of six CEP-701-treated rat tracheal xenografts implanted s.c. in athymic nude mice. The antitumor efficacy of CEP-701 was observed in the absence of pronounced morbidity or toxicity in vivo. Taken together, these data suggest that CEP-701 may be effective as a potential therapeutic agent in the treatment or management of PDAC.


  • 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.
