ShiShi, F. et al. (PubMed 26317515) found that Ribavirin, a broad spectrum antiviral nucleoside, inhibits the activity of mTOR/eIF4E, ERK/Mnk1/eIF4E signaling pathway and synergizes with tyrosine kinase inhibitor Imatinib to impair Bcr-Abl mediated proliferation and apoptosis in Ph+ leukemia. -SCBT Publication Review
