BNP1350, 7-[(2-trimethylsilyl)ethyl]-20(S)-camptothecin, is a novel semi-synthetic, highly lipophilic, silicon-containing camptothecin and an inhibitor of topoisomerase I. It has been supercomputer engineered for superior oral bioavailability, superior lactone stability, broad anti-tumor activity, increased potency and insensitivity to Pgp/MRP/LRP drug(More)
The antitumor activity of four new platinum analogues was compared at equitoxic doses to that of cisplatin in B10 LP/cpb nude mice bearing xenografts of human ovarian carcinomas. The two tumor lines used, MRI-H-207 and Pe, differ in histology, tumor doubling time, and sensitivity to cisplatin. Complete remission of MRI-H-207 was observed with cisplatin,(More)
The novel camptothecin derivative BNP1350 (7-[2-trimethylsilyl)ethyl]-20(S)-camptothecin), also known as Karenitecin, has been developed for superior oral bioavailability and increased lactone stability. In our study, we describe the antiproliferative effects of BNP1350, SN-38 and topotecan in 4 human ovarian cancer cell lines. BNP1350 was found to be(More)
UNLABELLED This study was conducted to determine whether the cytotoxic agent cisplatin (CDDP), also known as a radiosensitizer, can improve the efficacy of the 131I-labeled monoclonal antibody (MAb) 323/A3 in the treatment of experimental human ovarian cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS Nude mice bearing well-established subcutaneous FMa, OVCAR-3, or Ov.Pe(More)
Gamma-Interferon (IFN-gamma) and the antimetabolites 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and 5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (FUdR) were investigated as individual agents and in combination for their in vitro antiproliferative capacity and for their effect on the expression of HLA class-I antigen, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and the intracellular tumor-associated antigen(More)
The therapeutic efficacy of various doses and schedules of 131I-labelled anti-episialin monoclonal antibody (MAb) 139H2 was assessed in the NIH:OVCAR-3 human ovarian cancer xenograft model. Radioimmunotherapy was started at the time s.c. tumors were well established (100 to 300 mm3). The anti-tumor effects induced by i.v. injections of 131I-MAb 139H2 were(More)
We have investigated whether [186Re]-labeled chimeric monoclonal antibody 323/A3 (MAb c-323/A3) is as effective as [186Re]-labeled mouse 323/A3 (m-323/A3) in the growth inhibition of human ovarian cancer xenografts OVCAR-3 and FMa. [186Re] was conjugated to MAbs with the use of the chelate S-benzoylmercaptoacetyltriglycine (S-benzoyl-MAG3). The maximum(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is suggested to be an important regulator of angiogenesis in ovarian cancer. We have evaluated the effects of VEGF overexpression on the histology and growth rate of human ovarian cancer xenografts. OVCAR-3 human ovarian cancer cells were stably transfected with an expression vector encoding the 165-amino acid(More)
DX-8951f or exatecan mesylate ((1S,9S)-1-amino-9-ethyl-5-fluoro-2,3-dihydro-9-hydroxy-4-methyl-1H,12H-benzo[de]pyrano[3',4':6,7]indolizino[1,2-b]quinoline-10-13(9H,15H)-dione methanesulfonate dihydrate), is a new water-soluble derivative of camptothecin. We determined the activity of DX-8951f in experimental human colon cancer and ovarian cancer, being(More)
