09:03 EDTPCYCRosetta announces selection of first pilot project grant under MCC alliance
Rosetta Genomics (ROSG) announces the selection of the first project grant under its strategic alliance with Moffitt Cancer Center. The funded project is titled, “miRNAs as Determinants and Predictors of Ibrutinib Resistance in Mantle Cell Lymphoma.” The project will be led by Jianguo Tao, M.D., Ph.D., a renowned hematopathologist and physician-scientist at the Molecular and Chemical Biology Program at Moffitt, and Bijal Shah, M.D., an oncologist in the Experimental Therapeutic Program at Moffitt. MCL is an aggressive B-cell lymphoma. Ibrutinib, a blockbuster pharmaceutical marketed by Pharmacyclics (PCYC) under the brand name of IMBRUVICA, is a novel Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitor that received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for the treatment of MCL in 2014, with high response rates reported in patients with MCL. However, many MCL patients who initially show a partial or complete response to ibrutinib, eventually develop ibrutinib-acquired drug resistance accompanied by fulminant progression and accelerated mortality. Studies conducted by Drs. Tao and Shah have suggested that microRNAs play a role in the development of resistance to ibrutinib. The goal of this funded project is to further explore the role and underlying molecular mechanism of microRNAs in ibrutinib resistance in MCL, for development of microRNA-based predictive biomarkers for ibrutinib therapy, as well as for a rational design to overcome drug resistance.
