November 19, 2021: A new case study is presented, in which the use of a combination matrix for the determination of synergy is highlighted. The figure shows the combination of the selective MEK inhibitor binimetinib and the selective B-RAF inhibitor encorafenib. Synergistic effects are observed at low concentrations of both drugs in a melanoma cell line.

Oncolines now offers combination matrix experiments

Combining two drugs that act on different targets is a cornerstone of cancer therapy. Combination therapy can produce a more effective treatment response in less cycles, thereby reducing the incidence of drug resistance. Besides SynergyFinder™, Oncolines now offers combination matrix experiments to determine synergistic effects using the Bliss independence model. A new case study showing the combination of a selective MEK inhibitor with a selective B-RAF inhibitor is now available on our website.
