BACKGROUND To evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of copanlisib, a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase inhibitor, in patients with advanced solid tumors or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Phase I dose-escalation study including patients with advanced solid tumors or NHL, and a cohort of(More)
The phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K)-AKT pathway is one of the most commonly dysregulated pathways in all of cancer, with somatic mutations, copy number alterations, aberrant epigenetic regulation and increased expression in a number of cancers. The carefully maintained homeostatic balance of cell division and growth on one hand, and programmed cell(More)
e17543 Background: TNBC is associated with a worse prognosis than luminal subtypes. There is discordance among studies assessing the impact of race on outcomes of TNBC. Our objective was to assess whether African American (AA) vs. Caucasian (CA) race predicted survival outcomes for women with TNBC treated at a single institution in Memphis, TN. Secondary(More)
Combination therapy comprising bevacizumab with paclitaxel recently received accelerated approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer. Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody that targets vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), providing direct inhibition of(More)
Agents that target microtubule (MT) dynamics have been used extensively for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Among these agents are taxanes (solvent-based paclitaxel [sb-paclitaxel], docetaxel, and nab-paclitaxel) and non-taxanes, such as eribulin and ixabepilone. Although these agents have been approved for the treatment of MBC, questions(More)
Purpose Naturally occurring tumor suppressor microRNA-34a (miR-34a) downregulates the expression of >30 oncogenes across multiple oncogenic pathways, as well as genes involved in tumor immune evasion, but is lost or under-expressed in many malignancies. This first-in-human, phase I study assessed the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety, pharmacokinetics,(More)
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women and the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Metastatic breast cancer is considered incurable, and treatment is aimed at palliating symptoms, achieving remission, and prolonging survival. Treatment options for metastatic disease vary based on tumor surface markers and clinical(More)
