OBJECTIVES Mavrilimumab, a human monoclonal antibody targeting the alpha subunit of the granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor, was evaluated in a phase 2 randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to investigate efficacy and safety in subjects with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Subcutaneous mavrilimumab (10 mg, 30 mg, 50(More)
BACKGROUND Vandetanib (ZACTIMA; ZD6474) is a once-daily, oral inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor and epidermal growth factor receptor signaling. The safety and tolerability of vandetanib plus pemetrexed was assessed in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with previously treated(More)
PURPOSE The safety and tolerability of vandetanib (ZACTIMA; ZD6474) plus FOLFIRI was investigated in patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS Patients eligible for first- or second-line chemotherapy received once-daily oral doses of vandetanib (100 or 300 mg) plus 14-day treatment cycles of FOLFIRI. RESULTS A total of 21 patients received(More)
BACKGROUND Vandetanib (ZACTIMA) is a once-daily oral inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor, epidermal growth factor and RET receptor tyrosine kinases. The safety and tolerability of vandetanib plus mFOLFOX6 was investigated in patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS Patients eligible for first- or second-line chemotherapy(More)
INTRODUCTION The incidence of asthma exacerbations in patients receiving salmeterol/fluticasone propionate (Seretidetrade mark or Advair((R))) is low. However, when asthma control deteriorates, clinicians may instruct patients to double the dose of their inhaled corticosteroid medication for a short period. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate that(More)
OBJECTIVE A phase IIa study investigated efficacy and safety/tolerability of ascending doses of mavrilimumab (anti-granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor [GM-CSFR]α monoclonal antibody) in adult subjects with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis from Japan and Europe. Findings from the Japanese population are presented. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Salmeterol and fluticasone propionate are well established in the treatment of childhood asthma, and their combination is effective in children aged 4-11 years. Asthma guidelines recommend that the inhaler device best suited to the individual should be used to administer asthma treatment. The aim of this study was to further(More)
OBJECTIVES Despite the therapeutic value of current rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatments, agents with alternative modes of action are required. Mavrilimumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody targeting the granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor-α, was evaluated in patients with moderate-to-severe RA. METHODS In a phase IIb study(More)
