PURPOSE SAR245408 is a pan-class I phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor. This phase I study determined the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of two dosing schedules [first 21 days of a 28-day period (21/7) and continuous once-daily dosing (CDD)], pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles, and preliminary efficacy. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with(More)
Purpose The pan-Class I PI3K inhibitor buparlisib (BKM120) has shown activity in a range of preclinical cancer models. This first-in-man study was initiated to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of buparlisib (100 mg/day) and to assess safety and preliminary efficacy. Methods Patients with advanced solid tumors (N = 83) enrolled in a Phase I(More)
C-C chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2) stimulates tumor growth, metastasis, and angiogenesis. Carlumab, a human IgG1κ anti-CCL2 mAb, has shown antitumor activity in preclinical and clinical trials. We conducted a first-in-human phase 1b study of carlumab with one of four chemotherapy regimens (docetaxel, gemcitabine, paclitaxel + carboplatin, and pegylated liposomal(More)
PURPOSE TGFβ signaling plays a key role in tumor progression, including malignant glioma. Small-molecule inhibitors such as LY2157299 monohydrate (LY2157299) block TGFβ signaling and reduce tumor progression in preclinical models. To use LY2157299 in the treatment of malignancies, we investigated its properties in a first-in-human dose (FHD) study in(More)
In addition to being present in tumor cells, many targets of signal transduction inhibitors are also found in normal tissue. Side effects attributable to the mechanism of action of molecular targeted agents thus represent "on-target" modulation in normal tissues. These mechanism-based toxicities can be pharmacodynamic effects of pathway inhibition and, in(More)
Purpose Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) signaling plays a key role in epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of tumors, including malignant glioma. Small molecule inhibitors (SMI) blocking TGF-β signaling reverse EMT and arrest tumor progression. Several SMIs were developed, but currently only LY2157299 monohydrate (galunisertib) was advanced to(More)
Despite the policy changes to decrease tobacco consumption and therapeutic advances in this disease, squamous cell carcinomas arising from the head and neck (HNSCC) continue to represent a common neoplasm and a leading cause of cancer-related mortality in Europe and worldwide. although different approaches have been evaluated, no treatment has currently(More)
3011 Background: Activated TGF-b signaling has been associated with poor survival in several tumors, including glioma, hepatocellular and pancreatic cancer. TGF-b inhibitors are expected to improve outcome in such cancer patients. We report on safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and anti-tumor activity of intermittent treatment with the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate safety (primary endpoint), tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic profile, and preliminary activity of the intravenous, pan-class I isoform PI3K/mTOR inhibitor PF-05212384 in patients with advanced solid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Part 1 of this open-label phase I study was designed to estimate the maximum-tolerated dose(More)
3089 Background: Sym004 is a recombinant antibody 1:1 mixture of two chimeric anti-EGFR mAbs, which elicits superior cancer cell growth inhibition in preclinical models. Uniquely, Sym004 mediates cell surface receptor removal by triggering EGFR internalization and degradation. Results from a first-in-human multicenter trial evaluating safety and(More)
