Madonna, Gabriele and Ullman, Claudio Dansky and Gentilcore, Giusy and Palmieri, Giuseppe and Ascierto, Paolo Antonio (2012) NF-κB as potential target in the treatment of melanoma. Journal of Translational Medicine, Vol. 10 (53). eISSN 1479-5876. Article.
The RAS/MAP kinase pathway has attracted attention because activating mutations of the BRAF serine/threonine kinase was described in over 50% of melanomas. Very recently, selective and potent BRAF inhibitors have been developed. Several other signal transduction pathways have been found to be constitutively active or mutated in other subsets of melanoma tumors that are potentially targetable with new agents. Among these, NFκB is another pathway that melanoma tumors use to achieve survival, proliferation and resistance to apoptosis. Inhibition of NF-κB activation appears to be a very promising option for anti-cancer therapies.
