Our lab has formerly revealed that some gefitinib-insensitive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cell lines display leading autocrine fibroblast growth factor receptor signaling. 3 HNSCC cell lines sharing a genome-wide tiny barrette RNA collection were treated with AZ8010 and the abundance of shRNA sequences was evaluated by deep sequencing. Under-represented shRNAs in cured cells are expected to target genetics crucial for survival with AZ8010 treatment. We showed that specific knockdown of either ERBB2 or MET in combination with FGFR restraint resulted in boosted restraint of growth about FGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor treatment alone. These outcomes expose a function for alternative RTKs in preserving progrowth and survival signaling in HNSCC cells in the setup of FGFR restraint. Thus, enhanced therapies for HNSCC patients can involve rationally designed combinations of TKIs targeting FGFR, ERBB relative, and MET.
