NCI Drug Dictionary

  

JAK inhibitor INCB047986  
An orally bioavailable inhibitor of Janus-associated kinases (JAK), with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon oral administration, INCB047986 specifically binds to and inhibits the phosphorylation of JAK, which affects JAK-dependent signaling and may lead to an inhibition of cellular proliferation in JAK-overexpressing tumor cells. The JAK-STAT (signal transducer and activator of transcription) pathway plays a key role in the signaling of many cytokines and growth factors and is involved in cellular proliferation, growth, hematopoiesis, and the immune response; JAK kinases may be upregulated in inflammatory diseases, myeloproliferative disorders, and various malignancies. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

JAK1 inhibitor INCB052793  
An orally bioavailable inhibitor of Janus-associated kinase 1 (JAK1), with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon oral administration, INCB052793 specifically binds to and inhibits the phosphorylation of JAK1, which interferes with JAK-dependent signaling and may lead to an inhibition of cellular proliferation in JAK1-overexpressing tumor cells. The JAK-STAT (signal transducer and activator of transcription) signaling pathway is a major mediator of cytokine activity and is often dysregulated in a variety of tumor cell types. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.

JAK2 inhibitor AZD1480  
An orally bioavailable inhibitor of Janus-associated kinase 2 (JAK2) with potential antineoplastic activity. JAK2 inhibitor AZD1480 inhibits JAK2 activation, leading to the inhibition of the JAK/STAT (signal transducer and activator of transcription) signaling including activation of STAT3. This may lead to induction of tumor cell apoptosis and a decrease in cellular proliferation. JAK2, often upregulated or mutated in a variety of cancer cells, mediates STAT3 activation and plays a key role in tumor cell proliferation and survival. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

JAK2 inhibitor BMS-911543  
An orally available small molecule targeting a subset of Janus-associated kinase (JAK) with potential antineoplastic activity. JAK2 inhibitor BMS-911543 selectively inhibits JAK2, thereby preventing the JAK/STAT (signal transducer and activator of transcription) signaling cascade, including activation of STAT3. This may lead to an induction of tumor cell apoptosis and a decrease in cellular proliferation. JAK2, often upregulated or mutated in a variety of cancer cells, mediates STAT3 activation and plays a key role in tumor cell proliferation and survival. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

JAK2 inhibitor TG101348  
An orally bioavailable, small-molecule, ATP-competitive inhibitor of Janus-associated kinase 2 (JAK2) with potential antineoplastic activity. JAK2 inhibitor TG101348 competes with JAK2 as well as the mutated form AK2V617F for ATP binding, which may result in inhibition of JAK2 activation, inhibition of the JAK-STAT signaling pathway, and the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. JAK2 is the most common mutated gene in bcr-abl-negative myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs); the mutated form JAK2V617F has a valine-to-phenylalanine modification at position 617 and plays a key role in tumor cell proliferation and survival. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

JAK2 inhibitor WP1066  
An orally bioavailable inhibitor of Janus-associated kinase 2 (JAK2) with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon oral administration, WP1066 specifically binds to both JAK2 and its mutated form, JAK2 V617F, and inhibits their phosphorylation and activation. In addition, this agent degrades JAK2 protein. This results in the inhibition of the JAK- signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) and phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)/AKT signaling pathways, resulting in the induction of apoptosis in tumor cells overexpressing JAK2. JAK2, a tyrosine kinase, is overexpressed in a variety of tumor cells and is correlated with increased tumor cell proliferation and survival. The mutated form JAK2 V617F has a valine-to-phenylalanine modification at position 617 and plays a key role in tumor cell proliferation and survival. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.

JAK2 inhibitor XL019  
An orally bioavailable inhibitor of Janus-associated kinase 2 (JAK2) with potential antineoplastic activity. XL019 inhibits the activation of JAK2 as well as the mutated form JAK2V617F, which may result in the inhibition of the JAK-STAT signaling pathway and may induce apoptosis. The JAK2 mutated form JAK2V617F has a valine-to-phenylalanine modification at position 617 and plays a key role in tumor cell proliferation and survival. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

JAK2/Src inhibitor NS-018  
An orally bioavailable, small molecule inhibitor of Janus-associated kinase 2 (JAK2) and Src-family kinases, with potential antineoplastic activity. JAK2/Src inhibitor NS-018 competes with ATP for binding to JAK2 as well as the mutated form JAK2V617F, thereby inhibiting the activation of JAK2 and downstream molecules in the JAK2/STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 3) signaling pathway that plays an important role in normal development, particularly hematopoiesis. In addition, NS-018 inhibits the Src family tyrosine kinases. This eventually leads to the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. JAK2 is the most common mutated gene in bcr-abl-negative myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs); JAK2V617F is a constitutively activated kinase that activates the JAK/STAT signaling pathway and dysregulates cell growth and function, and its expression transforms hematopoietic cells to cytokine-independent growth. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

Jakafi  
(Other name for: ruxolitinib phosphate)

JEB regimen  
A chemotherapy regimen consisting of carboplatin (JM8), etoposide and bleomycin used for the treatment of childhood extracranial germ cell tumors. (NCI Thesaurus)

Jevtana  
(Other name for: cabazitaxel)

Jin Fu Kang  
A traditional Chinese herbal medicine derived from the plant Astragalus membranaceus with potential immunopotentiation activity. Jin Fu Kang may stimulate anti-tumor macrophage and natural killer cell activity and may enhance immune recognition of tumor cells by inhibiting the production of T-helper cell type 2 (Th2) cytokines such as interleukin-4 (IL-4) amd interleukin-10 (IL-10). Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)

Juice Plus  
(Other name for: fruit and vegetable extracts)

JUNOVAN  
(Other name for: mifamurtide)

Juven  
An orally bioavailable nutritional supplement. Juven contains the amino acids glutamine and arginine in addition to beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB). This agent may promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle mass. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
