SOHO 2018 | Pre-clinical activity of tipifarnib in CTCL

Pierluigi Porcu

Providing us with insight into a trial not yet published, Pierluigi Porcu, MD, from Jefferson Hospital, Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PN, discusses his team’s investigation into potential molecular biomarkers of response in mice induced to overexpress cytokine IL-15. Dr Porcu uses tipifarnib, a farnesyltransferase inhibitor which targets the RAS pathway, to treat the induced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma developed in the mice. Currently, he is focusing on looking for biomarkers of response from these animal trials. This video was recorded at the 2018 Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) Annual Meeting in Houston, TX
