Recent efforts to identify treatments for chronic diabetic complications have resulted in the discovery of a novel series of highly potent and selective 3-[(benzothiazol-2-yl)methyl]indole-N-alkanoic acid aldose reductase inhibitors. The lead candidate, 3-[(4,5,7-trifluorobenzothiazol-2-yl)methyl]indole-N-acetic acid (lidorestat, 9) inhibits aldose(More)
An exploratory population pharmacokinetic model for functional dupilumab was developed. Data from healthy volunteers and patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) receiving intravenous or subcutaneous doses were integrated. The data included 197 participants (2,518 measurements of dupilumab in serum) from six phase I and II studies. The data were analyzed using(More)
PURPOSE Nesvacumab (REGN910) is a fully human immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) monoclonal antibody that specifically binds and inactivates the Tie2 receptor ligand Ang2 with high affinity, but shows no binding to Ang1. The main objectives of this trial were to determine the safety, tolerability, dose-limiting toxicities (DLT), and recommended phase II dose (RP2D)(More)
Assessment of a new chemical entity for cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme induction at an early stage in discovery is crucial to prevent potential drug–drug interactions. CYP3A, the most abundant CYP isoform in the liver, metabolizes approximately 50% of drugs currently on the market and is also a highly inducible enzyme. The use of both rat and human hepatocyte(More)
BACKGROUND Alirocumab undergoes target-mediated clearance via binding of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9). Statins increase PCSK9 levels; the effects of nonstatin lipid-lowering therapies are unclear. Every-4-weeks dosing of alirocumab may be appropriate for some patients in absence of background statin but is not yet approved. (More)
PURPOSE Enoticumab (REGN421) is a fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibody that binds human Dll4 and disrupts Notch-mediated signaling. The main objectives of this trial were to determine the safety, dose-limiting toxicities (DLT), pharmacokinetics (PK), and recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of enoticumab. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Enoticumab was administered(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the efficacy and safety of ziv-aflibercept in combination with cisplatin and pemetrexed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS This single arm, multicentre phase II trial enrolled patients with previously untreated, locally advanced or metastatic non-squamous NSCLC. Patients received intravenous ziv-aflibercept 6 mg(More)
1. 14C-Viprostol, (I), a synthetic PGE2 analogue, was administered to 6 monkeys, orally, topically and intravenously in a three way crossover study. Total radioactivity and the pharmacologically active acid formed by rapid hydrolysis of viprostol in vivo, (II), were measured in plasma to determine absorption and absolute bioavailability. 2. After oral(More)
