Abstract

Ovarian cancer (OC) is characterized by a low response rate and high frequency of resistance development to currently available treatments. The therapeutic potential of histone methyltransferase DOT1L inhibitor in OC cells has been demonstrated, but optimal efficacy and safety of this targeted therapy approach still require improvement. We set forth to evaluate if this problem can be overcome by combinatorial targeting of this epigenetic modifier and menin, one of its functional partners in chromatin.
