Pharmacodynamic effects of dasatinib on the Src pathway.

<p>A) Treatment with dasatinib (0.8 μmol/L) at 0.5h, 1h, 2h, 4h, and 8h significantly reduced the activation of Src, FAK and paxillin at all time points examined in the HCT116 sensitive CRC cell line when compared to control. B) A decrease in Src activity was seen in 1 out of 3 CRC explants treated with dasatinib in the sensitive (CRC036) and resistant CRC explant (CRC027) measured at end of study (day 28). However, in both cases FAK activity appeared to be increased.</p>
