Tokai Pharmaceuticals Announces Preclinical Results from the University of Maryland Showing Galeterone and Analogs Inhibit Pancreatic Cancer Cell Growth

Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that scientists in the laboratory of Vincent Njar, PhD, at the University of Maryland School of Medicine presented preclinical data showing that galeterone and novel analogs of galeterone inhibited growth, survival and migration of human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cells. These data were presented in a poster presentation titled, 'Galeterone and Its Novel Analogs Induce Profound Anti-Cancer Activities in Human Pancreatic Cancer Cell Lines,' abstract number 1764, at the 2015 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Galeterone and its novel analogs were found to reduce PDAC cell proliferation, cell viability, and colony formation ability using both gemcitabine-naïve and gemcitabine-resistant cell lines and also acted synergistically with gemcitabine to further enhance anti-proliferative effects. Additional in vitro assays demonstrated that galeterone and its analogs reduced tumor cell migration, invasion and reduced MMP9 secretion. At a molecular level, galeterone modulated oncotargets and translational machinery, including the Mink1/2-eIF4E axis.
