PURPOSE The aim was to study the biological and molecular effects of the histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, valproic acid, in patients with solid tumor malignancies. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN A phase I dose escalation of valproic acid given on days 1 to 3 followed by epirubicin (day 3) was followed by a dose expansion of valproic acid combined with(More)
PURPOSE Panobinostat, a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, enhances antiproliferative activity in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines when combined with erlotinib. We evaluated this combination in patients with advanced NSCLC and head and neck cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Eligible patients were enrolled in a 3+3 dose-escalation design to(More)
PURPOSE Indoximod is an oral inhibitor of the indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase pathway, which causes tumor-mediated immunosuppression. Primary endpoints were maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and toxicity for indoximod in patients with advanced solid tumors. Secondary endpoints included response rates, pharmacokinetics, and immune correlates. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN(More)
BACKGROUND Vitamin E δ-tocotrienol (VEDT), a natural vitamin E from plants, has shown anti-neoplastic and chemoprevention activity in preclinical models of pancreatic cancer. Here, we investigated VEDT in patients with pancreatic ductal neoplasia in a window-of-opportunity preoperative clinical trial to assess its safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and(More)
Targeted kinase inhibitors and camptothecins have shown preclinical and clinical activity in several cancers. This trial evaluated the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicities of sorafenib and topotecan administered orally in pediatric patients with relapsed solid tumors. Sorafenib was administered twice daily and topotecan once daily on(More)
Purpose: Panobinostat, a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, enhances antiproliferative activity in non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines when combined with erlotinib. We evaluated this combination in patients with advanced NSCLC and head and neck cancer. Experimental Design: Eligible patients were enrolled in a 3þ3 dose-escalation design to(More)
A phase I study was conducted to evaluate the dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) and to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/recommended phase II dose of bendamustine with concurrent whole brain radiation (WBR) in patients with brain metastases (BM) from solid tumors. Four doses of intravenous weekly bendamustine were administered with 3 weeks of WBR at(More)
PURPOSE To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of topotecan in combination with ifosfamide, mesna, and etoposide (TIME), followed by autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT), in patients with chemotherapy-refractory malignancies. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients were treated with (in mg/m(2)/d) ifosfamide 3,333, mesna 3,333, and topotecan 3.3 to(More)
