Lombardi research teams hone in on treatments for osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma
Date:4/20/2010

Washington, DC Most cancers arise from the epithelium, the tissue that lines the body and the organs, but sarcomas come from connective tissue cells, like the bones. At Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, research have engaged in a full-court press to develop new therapies to treat osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma, the two most common bone tumors in children, adolescents and young adults.

At the AACR 101st Annual Meeting 2010, they offer new molecular insights into the translocation that causes Ewing's sarcoma, a genetic exchange between chromosomes that results in a fused gene that produces an oncogenic protein. These findings, coupled with use of sophisticated drug design technology, have led to identification of three new targets for potential treatment of this rare cancer. Additionally, researchers have identified two small molecules that have the potential to prevent or treat spread of osteosarcoma, a very aggressive cancer. (Embargoes listed with each abstract summary that follows).

"Scientific studies in the past decade identified very promising molecular targets that play a major role in tumor progression and invasion. With the help of a multidisciplinary team of scientists at Lombardi, we are now focusing on developing small molecules that can hit these targets," says Aykut ren, M.D., assistant professor in the Department of Oncology at Lombardi. "With this truly translational experimental approach, we may be able to optimize our small molecules for clinical trials in the near future."

Targeting of EWS-FLI1 with small molecule YK-4-279 reduces xenograft growth by disruption of disordered protein-protein interactions (abstract #3411)

Author's summary: "Because the oncoprotein that causes the Ewing's sarcoma is so disordered, we reasoned that it might be possible to use a small molecule to target that protein and
