SMI Event!!

Clinical Trials in CNS


11-12 November 2014

 SMi is proud to announce its 13th annual Clinical Trials in CNS Conference. With an ever increasing average life expectancy, neurodegenerative diseases are becoming more prevalent in society. With this comes the need for new and improved therapies for treating neurodegenerative conditions. From Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s disease, the target and mechanism by which a disease manifests itself presents unique challenges in how to approach such treatments not to mention ethical and legal issues behind treatment and trial design.

This conference will give delegates the opportunity to gain additional insights into the best practices in clinical trials, as well as address the challenges in CNS research and by looking at the latest pre-clinical and clinical studies.

This is an opportunity not to be missed, as we delve into the complex and exciting world of Central Nervous System discovery, allowing delegates to learn, explore and debate the key areas of CNS, its preclinical discovery and its clinical trials.

Article Title:

Molecular Mechanisms and Treatment of Radiation-Induced Lung Fibrosis

Author(s): Nian-Hua Ding, Jian Jian Li and Lun-Quan Sun


Radiation-induced lung fibrosis (RILF) is a severe side effect of radiotherapy in lung cancer patients that presents as a progressive pulmonary injury combined with chronic inflammation and exaggerated organ repair. RILF is a major barrier to improving the cure rate and well-being of lung cancer patients because it limits the radiation dose that is required to effectively kill tumor cells and diminishes normal lung function. Although the exact mechanism is unclear, accumulating evidence suggests that various cells, cytokines and regulatory molecules are involved in the tissue reorganization and immune response modulation that occur in RILF. In this review, we will summarize the general symptoms, diagnostics, and current understanding of the cells and molecular factors that are linked to the signaling networks implicated in RILF. Potential approaches for the treatment of RILF will also be discussed. Elucidating the key molecular mediators that initiate and control the extent of RILF in response to therapeutic radiation may reveal additional targets for RILF treatment to significantly improve the efficacy of radiotherapy for lung cancer patients.

Article Title: Novel Targeted Therapies to Overcome Trastuzumab Resistance in HER2- Overexpressing Metastatic Breast Cancer

Author(s): Yuan Huang, Peifen Fu and Weimin Fan


Overexpression of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is identified in approximately 25- 30% of breast cancers and indicates a poor prognosis. Trastuzumab, the anti-HER2 monoclonal antibody (mAb), has shown significant clinical effects selectively in HER2-overexpressing metastatic breast cancer (MBC) with improved overall survival and reduced recurrent risk. However, there is an urgent need to develop new strategies to overcome innate and acquired trastuzumab resistance, which has increasingly occurred. Recently, an increased understanding of mechanisms of trastuzumab resistance significantly promotes the development of novel targeted therapies for trastuzumabrefractory disease. It is believed that aberrant activations of several signaling pathways involving the human epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR/HER) family, phosphoinositide 3 kinase/Akt (PI3K/Akt) pathway, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family, contribute to the development of trastuzumab resistance. Novel agents that target these relevant signal pathways provide some potential solutions, such as tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) and mAbs. HER2 is also recognized as an immunotherapeutic target. The failure to induce immune-mediated antitumor response is another important reason for trastuzumab resistance. Strategies to boost T cell-mediated immune responses specific to HER2 including HER2 vaccines and bispecific antibodies (bsAbs) could be developed as a promising way to prevent relapse or combat trastuzumab resistance. In this review, the emerging data from preclinical and clinical studies related to these novel therapies will be discussed.

Article Title: Improving the Embryo Implantation Via Novel Molecular Targets

Author(s): Jingjie Li, Xiaoyan Liang and Zijiang Chen


With the development of modern assisted reproductive technology(ART), the treatment of infertility and the pregnant outcome by ART have been significantly improved. However, implantation failure, particularly the unexplained repeated implantation failure (RIF), is still the unsolved and principal problem to affect the outcome of ART. The completed embryo, the receptive uterus and a series of precisely controlled molecular events between the blastocyst and endometrium are all indispensable for the success of implantation. Thus, deep insight into the molecular mechanisms that impact the endometrial receptivity and embryo implantation is an effective way to improve the implantation rate. Here the novel molecular targets and biomarkers have been reviewed that are reported and proved during more recent years in the aspects of ion channels, aquaporins, long noncoding RNAs and microRNAs, kruppel like factors, metabolism related molecules and the endogenous retroviruses. Evaluation of implantation markers may help clinicians to predict pregnancy outcome and detect occult implantation deficiency. Moreover, these novel molecular targets are expected to apply to the clinical practice from bench to bedside and improve the implantation efficiency in ART and natural conception.

Recent Developments in the Discovery of Novel Antipsychotic Agents Modualating Dopamine and Serotonin Receptors

Author(s): Xin Li and Shutao Ma


Currently, schizophrenia, as a serious psychiatric disorder, continues affecting the quality of life in the psychotics. This disease is often debilitating and chronic, showing broad symptoms at one end by hallucinations, delusions, thought disorder and the other end by affective flattening, catatonia, social isolation. In order to combat this disease, many antipsychotic drugs have been developed and introduced into clinical practice in the past half century. However, only a small minority of them can treat effectively schizophrenia without side effects. In view of this situation, high attention has been given to the exploration of desired antipsychotic agents influential especially through the modulation of dopamine and serotonin receptors with substantial strides made in recent years, leading to the discovery of many novel chemical entities with intriguing profiles. In this review, we summarize novel structural antipsychotics in development and discuss the future direction of ideal antipsychotic drug candiates. In particular, the promising atypical antipsychotic profiles of new molecules and the inspirations for their design are highlighted.
