Drug combination sensitivity scoring facilitates the discovery of synergistic and efficacious drug combinations in cancer

High-throughput drug sensitivity screening has been utilized for facilitating the discovery of drug combinations in cancer. Many existing studies adopted a dose-response matrix design, aiming for the characterization of drug combination sensitivity …

DrugComb - an integrative cancer drug combination data portal

Drug combination therapy has the potential to enhance efficacy, reduce dose-dependent toxicity and prevent the emergence of drug resistance. However, discovery of synergistic and effective drug combinations has been a laborious and often …

Metabolomic and lipidomic profiling of plasma and cyst fluid allows the detection and characterization of pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms

Background: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMNs) of the pancreas may evolve from low- to high-grade dysplasia to invasive cancer. Accurate discrimination of IPMN-associated grade of dysplasia is an unmet clinical need for appropriate …

Improving the consistency of functional genomics screens using molecular features - a multi-omics, pan-cancer study

Probing the genetic dependencies of cancer cells helps understand the tumor biology and identify potential drug targets. RNAi-based shRNA and CRISPR/Cas9-based sgRNA have been commonly utilized in functional genetic screens to identify essential …

Host-microbe co-metabolism dictates cancer drug efficacy in C. elegans

Fluoropyrimidines are the first-line treatment for colorectal cancer, but their efficacy is highly variable between patients. We queried whether gut microbes, a known source of inter-individual variability, impacted drug efficacy. Combining two …
