The RAS signal transduction pathway and its role in radiation sensitivity.
RAS has been shown to increase radiation resistance. Upstream and downstream pathways from RAS could thus be targets for manipulation of radiosensitivity. EGFR expression and AKT phosphorylation are also associated with the response to radiation. A retrospective study evaluating EGFR and AKT in patients treated with multimodality therapy found a significant association between P-AKT and treatment failure. Moreover, these data are strengthened by in vitro studies showing that inhibition of EGF...Expand abstract
