In this study, we assessed if nafamostat mesilate may enhance anti-tumor effects of oxaliplatin on Panc-1 cells and pancreatic cancer mouse model. In combination treatment with nafamostat mesilate and oxaliplatin, NF-κB activation was inhibited by suppressing IκBα phosphorylation, and caspase-8-mediated apoptosis was more prominent than that treated with oxaliplatin alone, both in vitro and in vivo. Nafamostat mesilate reduced proliferation rate of Panc-1 cells as compared with oxaliplatin alone in vitro and enhanced oxaliplatin-induced tumor growth inhibition in vivo. Combination chemotherapy using nafamostat mesilate and oxaliplatin induces synergistic cytotoxicity in pancreatic cancer and could be a novel strategy for treatment.
