PURPOSE We studied the safety, clinical activity, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of AG-013736, an oral receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor of vascular endothelial cell growth factor, platelet-derived growth factor, and c-Kit, in patients with advanced cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients received fixed doses of AG-013736 orally in 28-day cycles. In the first(More)
PURPOSE Prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) is a prostate tumor antigen. We have previously demonstrated that a DNA vaccine encoding PAP can elicit antigen-specific CD8+ T cells in rodents. We report here the results of a phase I/IIa trial conducted with a DNA vaccine encoding human PAP in patients with stage D0 prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
Hypertension is a mechanism-based toxic effect of drugs that inhibit the vascular endothelial growth factor signaling pathway (VSP). Substantial evidence exists for managing hypertension as a chronic condition, but there are few prospectively collected data on managing acute hypertension caused by VSP inhibitors.

LBA2 Background: Docetaxel (D) improves OS of men with mPrCa who have progressed on androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). We aimed to assess the benefit of upfront chemohormonal therapy for metastatic PrCa. METHODS 1:1 randomization to ADT alone or ADT + D dosed 75mg/m2 every 3 weeks for 6 cycles within 4 month (mos) of starting ADT. Stratification factors:(More)
PURPOSE Identifying suitable markers of biologic activity is important when assessing novel compounds such as angiogenesis inhibitors to optimize the dose and schedule of therapy. Here we present the pharmacodynamic response to acute dosing of AG-013736 measured by dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to assess the safety and feasibility of administering volociximab, a chimeric monoclonal antibody that specifically binds to alpha(5)beta(1) integrin, and to determine the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary evidence of antitumor activity. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with advanced solid malignancies were treated(More)
BACKGROUND This phase 2 trial was designed to evaluate the efficacy of vorinostat in chemotherapy-pretreated patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. METHODS Patients with disease progression on 1 prior chemotherapy, a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) >or=5 ng/mL, and adequate organ function were treated with 400 mg vorinostat orally(More)
Background Current treatment for metastatic renal cell cancer with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) have provided improved overall survival, but complete responses are rare. We conducted a multicenter phase II study to evaluate the objective response rate of 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME2 NCD) alone and in combination(More)
Prior to the advent of VEGF-targeted therapies, renal cell carcinoma (RCC) was among the few solid tumors shown to respond to cytokine-based therapies such as interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interferon alpha. Previous work has shown that aminobisphosphonates, including zoledronic acid (ZA), are capable of activating human Vγ9 Vδ2 T cells in vitro, and these cells(More)
Purpose: 2ME2 (Panzem®) is a non-estrogenic derivative of estradiol with antiproliferative and antiangiogenic activity. Preclinical data support antitumor activity in prostate cancer. This trial evaluated the efficacy of 2ME2 NCD in patients with taxane-refractory, metastatic CRPC. Experimental Design: Patients with metastatic CRPC who had progressed on(More)
