BACKGROUND Endometriosis is a risk factor for epithelial ovarian cancer; however, whether this risk extends to all invasive histological subtypes or borderline tumours is not clear. We undertook an international collaborative study to assess the association between endometriosis and histological subtypes of ovarian cancer. METHODS Data from 13 ovarian(More)
BACKGROUND Dysregulation of the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)/MET pathway promotes tumour growth and metastasis. Rilotumumab is a fully human, monoclonal antibody that neutralises HGF. We aimed to assess the safety, efficacy, biomarkers, and pharmacokinetics of rilotumumab combined with epirubicin, cisplatin, and capecitabine (ECX) in patients with(More)
PURPOSE The aims were to assess the safety, pharmacokinetics, maximum tolerated dose, and antitumor activity of AMG 102, a fully human hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF)-neutralizing monoclonal antibody, in patients with solid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients (N = 40) with refractory advanced solid tumors were enrolled into six(More)
This phase II study evaluated the efficacy and safety of AMG 102 (rilotumumab), a fully human monoclonal antibody against hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF), in patients with recurrent glioblastoma (GBM). Patients with histologically confirmed, measurable recurrent GBM or gliosarcoma (World Health Organization grade 4) and ≤3 relapses or prior(More)
INTRODUCTION The management of early breast cancer with skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) and immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) is not based on evidence from randomised controlled trials. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the oncological safety, post-operative morbidity and patients' satisfaction with SSM and IBR using the latissimus dorsi (LD)(More)
The search for genetic variants associated with ovarian cancer risk has focused on pathways including sex steroid hormones, DNA repair, and cell cycle control. The Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium (OCAC) identified 10 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes in these pathways, which had been genotyped by Consortium members and a pooled analysis(More)
Part- and whole-task conditions were created by manipulating the presence of certain components of the Space Fortress video game. A cognitive model was created for two-part games that could be combined into a model that performed the whole game. The model generated predictions both for behavioral patterns and activation patterns in various brain regions.(More)
OBJECTIVE • To evaluate the efficacy and safety of single-agent AMG 102, an investigational, fully human monoclonal antibody to hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF), in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS • This open-label phase II study included patients ≥ 18 years old with histologically confirmed, advanced or metastatic RCC(More)
PURPOSE This phase Ib study evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and antitumor activity of AMG 102, a fully human monoclonal antibody against hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF), in combination with bevacizumab or motesanib in patients with advanced solid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with treatment-refractory(More)
Over 22,000 cases of ovarian cancer were diagnosed in 2007 in the United States, but only a fraction of them can be attributed to mutations in highly penetrant genes such as BRCA1. To determine whether low-penetrance genetic variants contribute to ovarian cancer risk, we genotyped 1,536 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in several candidate gene(More)
