teaga and Jeffrey Engelman, generated cancer cells resistant to the effects of gefitinib and found that these cells were constantly sending signals from a protein on their surface known as IGF1R. This meant that two proteins known as IRS-1 and PI3K were always associated. If this association was disrupted then the cells once again became susceptible to the effects of gefitinib. Further analysis showed that if mice with a human tumor were treated with gefitinib and a drug inhibiting IGF1R their tumors did not recur, whereas neither drug alone could prevent tumor recurrence. The authors therefore suggest that drug combinations that target both EGFR and IGF1R might be of benefit to individuals with cancers that are responsive to EGFR-targeted therapies.
