IPAT on the back.

Top Line: PTEN is one of the most frequently mutated genes in prostate cancer, which often results in dysregulation of the PI3K/AKT pathway.

The Study: Ipatasertib is an AKT inhibitor. IPATential150 was a large randomized phase 3 trial that sought to determine if adding ipatasertib to abiraterone in first-line treatment of mCRPC would improve radiographic progression-free survival (PFS). Over 1100 men with mCRPC were randomized to abiraterone +/- ipatasertib and underwent CT/MRI and bone scan every 2-3 months. PTEN loss at baseline was defined as 50% or more of tumor specimen having no PTEN staining on immunohistochemistry, which was present in 47% of enrollees. Co-primary endpoints were radiographic PFS in 1) the overall population and 2) the subset of men with PTEN loss. In the overall group, there was no significant difference in outcomes with PFS events occurred in 55% of those receiving abiraterone versus 46% of those receiving abiraterone + ipatasertib (median time to event was 17 versus 19 months, respectively). However, among those with PTEN loss, the difference creeped up to significance with rates of 59% versus 48% (median time to event, again, was 17 versus 19 months). Can a reader get a RMST here? Anyway, PFS improvements and other clinical measures of response with ipatasertib were more pronounced among patients found to have PTEN loss on next-gen sequencing and when PTEN loss was seen in a higher % of tumor specimen. The main additional side effects of ipatasertib were diarrhea, rash, and hyperglycemia.

  1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: emutemple@gmail.com or you can contact him through his website https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ fb page Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341
