Purpose To evaluate MK-8242 in patients with wild-type TP53 advanced solid tumors. Patients and Methods MK-8242 was administered orally twice a day on days 1 to 7 in 21-day cycles. The recommended phase II dose (RP2D) was determined on the basis of safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and by mRNA expression of the p53 target gene pleckstrin(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluate safety/tolerability/efficacy of MK-8242 in subjects with refractory/recurrent AML. METHODS MK-8242 was dosed p.o. QD (30-250mg) or BID (120-250mg) for 7on/7off in 28-day cycle. Dosing was modified to 7on/14off, in 21-day cycle (210 or 300mg BID). RESULTS 26 subjects enrolled (24 evaluable for response); 5/26 discontinued due to AEs.(More)
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)
We present a method for the registration and matching of perspective surface normal maps. Registration of two maps consists of optimally aligning their normals through a 2-D warping in the image plane in conjunction with a 3-D rotation of the normals. Once aligned, the average dot-product then serves as a match metric for automatic target recognition (ATR).(More)
Aberrant regulation of glucose production makes a critical contribution to the impaired glycemic control that is observed in type 2 diabetes. Although isotopic tracer methods have proven to be informative in quantifying the magnitude of such alterations, it is presumed that one must rely on venous access to administer glucose tracers which therein presents(More)
We describe a method for segmenting arterial vessel wall motion to sub-pixel resolution, using the returns from M-mode ultrasound. The technique involves measuring the spatial offset between all pairs of scans from their cross-correlation, converting the spatial offsets to relative wall motion through a global optimization, and finally translating from(More)
