Platelet-derived growth factor receptor independent proliferation of human glioblastoma cells: selective tyrosine kinase inhibitors lack antiproliferative activity.

Gross, Dietmar ; Bernhardt, Günther ; Buschauer, Armin


PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and PDGF receptors (PDGFRs) in the proliferation of human glioblastoma cells as a prerequisite for a new therapeutic approach to the treatment of malignant brain tumors with selective tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as imatinib. METHODS AND RESULTS: In the human glioblastoma cell lines U-87 MG, ...
