Flavone acetic acid is the second in a series of compounds based on the flavonoid aglycone ring structure to be clinically evaluated in malignant disease. Preclinical studies have indicated that a minimum plasma level of 150 micrograms/ml is required before therapeutic efficacy (in a wide range of experimental tumors) is seen in mice; both in vitro and in(More)
Recent clinical trials have suggested that a combination of folinic acid and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) may improve response rates and survival in patients with advanced colorectal cancer. However, this regimen has been complicated by potentially life threatening toxicity. Regional delivery of folinic acid via a hepatic artery catheter might be expected to(More)
Rhizoxin is a macrocyclic lactone compound that binds to tubulin and inhibits microtubule assembly. Rhizoxin demonstrated preclinical anti-tumour activity against a variety of human tumour cell lines and xenograft models. Phase I evaluation found a maximum tolerated rhizoxin dose of 2.6 mg m-2, with reversible, but dose-limiting, mucositis, leucopenia and(More)
