PURPOSE Sodium phenylbutyrate (PB) demonstrates potent differentiating capacity in multiple hematopoietic and solid tumor cell lines. We conducted a Phase I and pharmacokinetic study of PB by continuous infusion to characterize the maximum tolerated dose, toxicities, pharmacokinetics, and antitumor effects in patients with refractory solid tumors.

4-Ipomeanol (IPO), a naturally occurring pulmonary toxin, is the first cytotoxic agent to undergo clinical development based on a biochemical-biological rationale as an antineoplastic agent targeted specifically against lung cancer. This rationale is based on preclinical observations that metabolic activation and intracellular binding of IPO, as well as(More)
Hexamethylene bisacetamide (HMBA, NSC 95580), a potent polar-planar differentiating agent in vitro, was studied in a phase I trial as a 10-day continuous infusion administered every 4 weeks. Since preclinical evidence had demonstrated that the duration of HMBA exposure was an important variable in the induction of differentiation, and HMBA steady-state(More)
Brequinar sodium is a quinoline carboxylic acid derivative that has shown antitumor activity in a number of in vivo murine and human tumor xenograft models. Its mechanism of action is blockade of de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis by inhibition of dihydroorotic acid dehydrogenase. In vitro and in vivo studies demonstrate the superiority of prolonged drug(More)
Paclitaxel is active in metastatic breast cancer. Combination studies have demonstrated complex interactions between paclitaxel and other cytotoxic agents, including sequence-dependent cytotoxic, toxicological, and pharmacological effects. The principal objectives of this study were to determine the maximum tolerated doses of paclitaxel (3-h infusion) and(More)
Quantitative experimental data from studies of intracellular processing and transport of secretory and membrane proteins are only rarely evaluated using kinetic modelling. Instead, the analysis of such data is usually limited to calculating either the apparent half-life or the transit time. Neither of these parameters accurately measures rates of cellular(More)
CI-980 (NSC 613862) is one of a novel class of 1,2-dihydropyrido[3, 4-b]pyrazines that inhibits tubulin polymerization, presumably by binding to the colchicine binding site of tubulin. In a Phase I and pharmacological study, 16 patients with advanced solid neoplasms were treated with CI-980 on a continuous 72-h infusion schedule at doses ranging from(More)
4-Ipomeanol (IPO), a naturally occurring pulmonary toxin, is the first cytotoxic agent to undergo clinical development based on a biochemical-biological rationale as an antineoplastic agent targeted specifically against lung cancer. This rationale is based on preclinical observations that met abolic activation and intracellular binding of IPO, as well as(More)
Brequinar sodium is a quinoline carboxylic acid derivative that has shown antitumor activity in a number of in vivo murine and human tumor xenograft models. Its mechanism of action is blockade of tie novo pyrim-idine biosynthesis by inhibition of dihydroorotic acid dehydrogenase. In vitro and in vivo studies demonstrate the superiority of prolonged drug(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this phase I clinical trial was to determine the maximum-tolerated dose and toxicity of CP-609,754 in patients with solid tumors refractory to standard therapies, to determine the cellular effects of CP-609,754 on its molecular target (farnesyltransferase), and to determine the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of this agent.
