PURPOSE To assess the feasibility of administering XRP6258, a new taxane with a low affinity for the multidrug resistance 1 protein, as a 1-hour i.v. infusion every 3 weeks. The study also sought to determine the maximum tolerated dose and the recommended dose, to describe the pharmacokinetic (PK) behavior of the compound, and to seek preliminary evidence(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine in patients with previously untreated advanced colorectal cancer the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and safety profile of irinotecan in combination with capecitabine, to identify a recommended dose and to determine the response rate and time to disease progression. In addition, we aimed to explore the(More)
PURPOSE Taxanes are important chemotherapeutic agents with proven efficacy in human cancers, but their use is limited by resistance development. We report here the preclinical characteristics of cabazitaxel (XRP6258), a semisynthetic taxane developed to overcome taxane resistance. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Cabazitaxel effects on purified tubulin and on(More)
PURPOSE To develop a population pharmacokinetic (PK) model for cabazitaxel in patients with advanced solid tumors and examine the influence of demographic and baseline parameters. METHODS One hundred and seventy patients who received cabazitaxel (10-30 mg/m(2), 1-h IV infusion) every 7 or 21 days in five Phase I-III studies were analyzed by non-linear(More)
Fananserin is a potential antipsychotic compound with high affinity for both D4 and 5-HT2A receptors, and negligible affinity for D2 receptors. Because the tolerance for antipsychotic compounds often differs between schizophrenic patients and healthy subjects, this bridging study was designed to evaluate the tolerability of fananserin, to define the slow(More)
First-generation taxanes have changed the treatment paradigm for a wide variety of cancers, but innate or acquired resistance frequently limits their use. Cabazitaxel is a novel second-generation taxane developed to overcome such resistance. In vitro, cabazitaxel showed similar antiproliferative activity to docetaxel in taxane-sensitive cell lines and(More)
BACKGROUND Oral administration of irinotecan (CPT-11) should allow sustained exposure to the drug without the inconvenience of intravenous delivery and with fewer side-effects. PATIENTS AND METHODS The present phase I trial of CPT-11, administered orally as a powder-filled capsule for 5 consecutive days every 3 weeks at doses ranging from 30 to 90(More)
Cabazitaxel is approved in patients with metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer previously treated with a docetaxel-containing regimen. This study evaluated a weekly cabazitaxel dosing regimen. Primary objectives were to report dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) and to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). Efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics(More)
