PURPOSE Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF/SF) and its receptor c-Met have previously been shown to be up-regulated in multiple human cancers, including glioblastoma multiforme. To better understand if AMG 102, a fully human, anti-HGF/SF-neutralizing antibody, could be incorporated into current clinical practice, AMG 102 was tested preclinically in combination(More)
The insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth and differentiation, and in protection from apoptosis. IGF-1R has been shown to be an appealing target for the treatment of human cancer. Herein, we report the synthesis, structure-activity relationships (SAR), X-ray cocrystal structure and in vivo(More)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is one of the major causes of liver disease worldwide. It is important to conduct antiviral therapy against chronic hepatitis B to minimize the amount of liver damage. Lamivudine has been known to be an effective antiviral agent for the treatment of HBV infection. However, the emergence of viral mutants resistant to lamivudine is the(More)
Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE MRI) is an accepted method to evaluate tumor perfusion and permeability and anti-vascular cancer therapies. However, there is no consensus on the vascular input function estimation method, which is critical to kinetic modeling and K trans estimation. This work proposes a response-derived input(More)
