Akt plays a key role in the aggressive pathogenesis of HER2+ malignancies, suggesting that Akt-inhibitors may be of therapeutic value in the treatment of HER2+ tumors. Preclinical studies demonstrate synergy between MK-2206, a selective allosteric Akt-inhibitor, with paclitaxel and trastuzumab. We aimed to evaluate the safety of this combination in patients(More)
The pharmacology of the prostaglandins (PGs) and thromboxanes (Txs) released from immunologically challenged guinea-pig lungs is related to their roles in the anaphylactic response. 6-oxo-PGF1alpha probably contibutes substantially to bronchoconstriction during anaphylaxis. TxB2 may contribute to the anaphylactic response by increasing SRA-A release and by(More)
The release of prostaglandins (PGs) and thromboxanes (Txs) from perfused guinea pig lungs was investigated during different immunological states. The major product released from normal lungs perfused with exogenous arachidonic acid was 6-oxo-PGF1a. The procedure of sensitisation to specific antigen resulted in an increase in the release of(More)
Gas-liquid chromatographic procedures are described for the determination of isomeric impurities in rho-chlorobenzoyl chloride and the intermediates, 2-(rho-nitrophenyl)-proprionitrile and 2-phenylpropionitrile, in a ten-stage synthesis of benoxaprofen, 2-(rho-chlorophenyl)-alpha-methyl-5-benzoxazoleacetic acid.
The diastereoisomeric content of 1-(2-phenyladamant-1-yl)-2-methylaminopropane can be determined by gas chromatography following treatment with chlorodifluoroacetic anhydride. Racemisation occurs in the synthesis of 2-phenyladamantane from the corresponding 2-chloroadamantane in the Friedel-Crafts reaction with aluminium chloride, but fractionation of the(More)
Inhibition of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway is associated with metabolic and immunologic perturbations that impact drug tolerability. Here, we studied whether PI3 kinase/mTOR pathway inhibitors are associated with greater metabolic impact and decreased tolerability in Asian patients. A retrospective(More)
