Background: NK611 is a novel podophyllotoxin derivative. Compared with etoposide, NK611 carries a dimethyl-amino group at the D-glucose moiety. The antitumor activity of NK611 showed to be equal or superior to etoposide in a variety of in vitro and in vivo tumor models. The aim of our present study was to determine the maximum tolerated dose and the(More)
We have conducted a clinical and pharmacokinetic trial of the novel podophyllotoxin derivative NK611 administered orally for 21 consecutive days. The treatment was repeated every 35 days. Eighteen patients were included into the study, all of whom were eligible. Due to early progression of tumor disease in two patients, 16 patients were évaluable for(More)
Gemcitabine and etoposide have both shown single-agent activity against multiple tumor types in clinical trials, including small cell lung cancer, but have not been previously used together. Forty-four patients with small cell and non-small cell lung cancer or other tumor types were enrolled in a phase I dose-finding trial using this drug combination.(More)
