PURPOSE Bcl-2 is a critical regulator of apoptosis that is overexpressed in the majority of small cell lung cancers (SCLC). Nativoclax (ABT-263) is a potent and selective inhibitor of Bcl-2 and Bcl-x(L). The primary objectives of this phase IIa study included safety at the recommended phase II dose and preliminary, exploratory efficacy assessment in(More)
Tyrosine kinase inhibitors represent a class of targeted therapy that has proven to be successful for cancer treatment. Linifanib is a novel, orally active multi-targeted receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) inhibitor that exhibits potent antitumor and antiangiogenic activities against a broad spectrum of experimental tumors and malignancies in patients. The(More)
Longitudinal changes of 3′-[18 F]fluoro-3′-deoxythymidine (FLT) and 2-deoxy-2-[18 F]fluoro-d-glucose (FDG) in response to irinotecan therapy in an animal model of colorectal cancer were compared. SCID/CB-17 mice with HCT116 tumors were treated with 50 mg/kg irinotecan by intraperitoneal injection weekly for 3 weeks. FLT and FDG-positron emission tomography(More)
Causal mechanism of relationship between the clinical outcome (efficacy or safety endpoints) and putative biomarkers, clinical baseline, and related predictors is usually unknown and must be deduced empirically from experimental data. Such relationships enable the development of tailored therapeutics and implementation of a precision medicine strategy in(More)
BACKGROUND Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway activation in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck contributes to treatment resistance and disease progression. Buparlisib, a pan-PI3K inhibitor, has shown preclinical antitumour activity and objective responses in patients with epithelial malignancies. We assessed whether the addition of(More)

BACKGROUND The phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt) signalling axis and androgen receptor (AR) pathways exhibit reciprocal feedback regulation in phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN)-deficient metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) in preclinical models. This phase Ib study evaluated the pan-PI3K inhibitor(More)
OBJECTIVES Linifanib, a potent and selective inhibitor of the tyrosine kinase activity of vascular endothelial growth factor and platelet-derived growth factor receptors, has clinical activity in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) both as monotherapy in the relapsed setting or with carboplatin and paclitaxel in the first-line setting. Though(More)
