Abstract 3205:

Perifosine, as a single agent, inhibits neuroblastoma tumor cell growth in in vitro and in vivo preclinical models.

Author(s): Zhijie Li, Fei Tan, Jenna Tong, Amy McKee, Carol Thiele. National Cancer Inst., Bethesda, MD

Time/location: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Hall B-F, Poster Section 10, # 13

Abstract Summary: In vitro studies in neuroblastoma cell lines indicate that perifosine treatment induced inhibition of Akt phosphorylation, and decreases of cell survival. In vivo studies of perifosine treatment led to significant increases in neuroblastoma tumor bearing mouse survival. In summary, Investigators conclude that the data indicates that as a single agent, perifosine targets activation of Akt in neuroblastoma cells and xenografts, and significantly inhibits tumor growth.
