Lung cancer is the most frequent and lethal human cancer in the world. Because is still an unsolved health issue, new compounds or therapeutic strategies are urgently needed. Furoxans are presented as potentials candidates for lung cancer treatment. Accordingly, we evaluated the efficacy of a benzofuroxan derivative, BFD-22, alone and combined with sorafenib against NCI-H460 cell line. We showed that BFD-22 has cytotoxic effects on the NCI-H460 cells. Importantly, the Combination Index (CI) evaluation revels that BFD-22 combined with sorafenib has a stronger cytotoxic effect. In addition, the combination induces apoptosis through extrinsic pathway, leading to TRAIL-R1/DR4-triggered apoptosis. Furthermore, BFD-22 combined with sorafenib increases ROS production and simultaneously reduces perlecan expression in the NCI-H460 cells. In accordance, tumor cells were arrested in the S-phase, and these anti-proliferative effects also inhibit cell migration. This is the first study reporting an advantage of BFD-22 combined with sorafenib as a new therapeutic strategy in the fight against lung cancer. (C) 2014 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
