UCI team finds new target for treating wide spectrum of cancers
Date:1/31/2013

"The discovery and pharmaceutical development of such a compound could have a profound impact on cancer treatments," Kaiser said. "Instead of focusing on a specific form of the disease, oncologists could treat a wide spectrum of cancers, including those of the lung and breast." He added that there is currently one group of experimental drugs called Nutlins that stop p53 degradation, but they don't target protein mutations as would a drug binding to the newly discovered pocket.

The results are the culmination of years of labor by researchers with UC Irvine's Institute for Genomics & Bioinformatics and the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

"It's been a large and complex multidisciplinary effort," said Richard Lathrop, professor of computer science and co-leader of the study. "We're working on the leading edge of what's possible, and a variety of skills and expertise is required to make progress. Hopefully, our research eventually will lead to drugs that target many different forms of cancer."
