PURPOSE Panitumumab, a fully human antibody targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor, is active in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). This trial evaluated panitumumab added to bevacizumab and chemotherapy (oxaliplatin- and irinotecan-based) as first-line treatment for mCRC. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients were randomly assigned within(More)
PURPOSE In a multicenter, double-blind phase II trial, we compared the efficacy and safety of perifosine plus capecitabine (P-CAP) with placebo plus capecitabine (CAP) in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who had progressed after as many as two prior therapies. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients (n = 38) not previously treated with capecitabine(More)
7127 Background: Abraxane (A) is a cremophor free, albumin-bound nanoparticle of paclitaxel (P) approved for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer. Belani et al. (JCO 21: 2933-2939, 2003) reported that P 100 mg/m2 days 1, 8 and 15 q 28 days with C AUC 6 on day 1 led to a 32% response rate in 132 patients (pts) with NSCLC. The median time to progression(More)
Mycotic processes occasionally complicate atherosclerotic aortic disease and usually require aggressive surgical therapy to control sepsis and prevent arterial rupture. Rarely, fungal organisms are responsible for primary infection of the abdominal aorta. We report the first case of Cryptococcal aortitis presenting as a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, also referred to as inflammatory fibrosarcoma, is a rare tumor composed of myofibroblastic spindle cells of uncertain etiology and disputed nosology. We report a case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the omentum with involvement of the bone marrow in an 18-year-old man. Histologic and immunohistochemical studies(More)
4081 Background: Perifosine (Peri), a synthetic alkylphospholipid, inhibits or modifies a number of different signal transduction pathways (AKT, MAPK and JNK). Peri as a single agent or in combination with other cytotoxic agents, has shown clinical benefit with a manageable safety profile. In a phase I solid tumor trial, Peri was safely combined with(More)
PURPOSE Adding antiangiogenic therapy to standard chemotherapy has improved response rates and progression-free survival in metastatic breast cancer (BC) patients. This phase II study evaluated cardiac safety of bevacizumab with/without trastuzumab with two docetaxel-based regimens in early BC. METHODS 127 women with non-metastatic node-positive or(More)
TPS100 Background: PD 0332991 is an orally bioavailable selective inhibitor of CDK4/6 and prevents cellular DNA synthesis by prohibiting progression of the cell cycle from G1 to S phase. Preclinical evaluations suggest that reduction in CDKN2A (p16) expression and cyclin D1 (CCND1) overexpression confer susceptibility to PD 0332991 (Finn et al. Breast(More)
INTRODUCTION Addition of the antiangiogenic agent bevacizumab to paclitaxel significantly improves response rates and progression-free survival for metastatic breast cancer (MBC). To assess the activity of docetaxel plus bevacizumab, a multicenter phase II trial was conducted. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with measurable first-line HER2/neu-negative MBC(More)
