Abstract A combination of two drugs afforded remarkable protection from intestinal neoplasia in APC(Min/+) mice, a murine model of human familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). One of the drugs was sulindac, a prototypical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with established chemopreventative activity. The second drug was EKI-569, a newly developed, irreversible inhibitor of the epidermal growth factor receptor kinase. Although 100\% of the untreated APC(Min/+) mice developed approximately 20 polyps, nearly half the mice treated with these two agents developed no polyps at all. These results suggest a powerful strategy for the chemoprevention of human colonic neoplasia. This article was published in Nat Med and referenced in Journal of Clinical & Experimental Pathology
