MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

From humble beginnings over 25 years ago as a lipid kinase activity associated with certain oncoproteins, PI3K (phosphoinositide 3-kinase) has been catapulted to the forefront of drug development in cancer, immunity and thrombosis, with the first clinical trials of PI3K pathway inhibitors now in progress. Here we give a brief overview of some key discoveries in the PI3K area and their impact, and include thoughts on the current state of the field, and where it could go from here


Feature:

PI3K has become a very intense area of research, with over 2000 publications on PI3K in PubMed for 2009 alone
The expectations for a therapeutic impact of intervention with PI3K activity are high, and progress in the clinical arena is being monitored by many
However, targeted therapies almost invariably encounter roadblocks, often exposing unresolved questions in the basic understanding of the target
