Bortezomib blocks TNF-induced NF-kB activation in a dose- and time-dependent fashion in multiplemyeloma cells through degradation of IkB. Bortezomib caused comparable growth suppression in LNCaP-Pro5 and PC3M-Pro4 cells with an IC90 of 10 nM. Bortezomib inhibits cell proliferation of H460 cells (Human non-small cell lung cancer cell lines) with an IC50 of 0.1 µM. In a study with the National Cancer Institute's panel of 60 human cell lines, bortezomib showed a mean IC50 of 7 nM as tested by SRB analysis.
