Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) inhibitor dehydroxymethylepoxyquinomicin (DHMEQ) enhances the therapeutic effect of paclitaxel on tumors formed by the xenotransplantation of anaplastic thyroid carcinoma FRO cells. In animals treated with paclitaxel and NF-κB inhibitor, a reduction in the tumor volume was observed, which is significantly different from the effects of each of the compounds in particular. Thus, the combined use of paclitaxel and NF-κB inhibitor is a promising strategy for further preclinical studies for developing the new chemotherapeutic approaches for the anaplastic thyroid cancer treatment.
