Abstract

The therapeutic treatment of osteosarcoma (OS), a rare malignant teenage cancer of the skeletal system, still represents a great challenge as patient survival after conventional protocol chemotherapy treatment has not improved in the last four decades leaving poor patient prognoses. Therefore, many efforts have been done to find increasingly reliable OS cell models and to identify “druggable” targets in OS, in order to identify novel effective therapeutic approaches and treatment strategies. In this contest, the more successful use of patient-derived cell cultures in respect to human commercial lines and findings of Src kinase deregulation in cancer, prompted us to study for the first time the activation state of Src and the potential activity of our Src inhibitor SI-83 in a number of chemo-naïve patient-derived primary OS cells. We here demonstrate that Src is hyperactivated in OS cells in respect to the nonmalignant counterpart and that SI-83 is able to strongly decrease cell viability, proliferation, Src416phosphorylation, and cell migration. © 2017 BioFactors, 43(6):801–811, 2017.
