BACKGROUND We evaluated the activity and toxic effects of bortezomib in patients with mantle cell lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty patients, including 29 eligible patients, were enrolled; 13 had received no prior chemotherapy. The dose of bortezomib was 1.3 mg/m2 given on days 1, 4, 8 and 11 every 21 days. Response was assessed according to the(More)
PURPOSE Cediranib is a potent oral inhibitor of the tyrosine kinase activity associated with all subtypes of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor. Purposes of this study were to determine the recommended phase II dose of cediranib in combination with standard doses of modified FOLFOX-6 (mFOLFOX-6), and the tolerability, safety, pharmacokinetics, and(More)
PURPOSE To determine the response rate and toxicity of flavopiridol in patients with previously untreated or relapsed mantle-cell lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Adult patients with previously untreated or in first or second relapse of previously responsive mantle-cell lymphoma were given flavopiridol 50 mg/m2/d by intravenous bolus for 3 consecutive days(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of single-agent bortezomib in Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM). PATIENTS AND METHODS Symptomatic WM patients, untreated or previously treated, received bortezomib 1.3 mg/m2 intravenously days 1, 4, 8, and 11 on a 21-day cycle until two cycles past complete response (CR), stable disease (SD) attained,(More)
BACKGROUND SB939 is an orally available, competitive histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor selective for class I, II and IV histone deacetylases. Preclinical evaluation of SB939 revealed a profile suggesting improved efficacy compared to other HDAC inhibitors. This phase I study was carried out to determine the safety, dose-limiting toxicity, recommended(More)
BACKGROUND Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive malignancy of the central nervous system in adults. Increased activity of the phosphatidylinositol-3-OH kinase (PI3K) signal transduction pathway is common. We performed a phase II study using PX-866, an oral PI3K inhibitor, in participants with recurrent GBM. METHODS Patients with histologically(More)
BACKGROUND Clusterin is a cytoprotective chaperone protein that promotes cell survival and confers broad-spectrum treatment resistance. OGX-011 is a 2'-methoxyethyl modified phosphorothioate antisense oligonucleotide that is complementary to clusterin mRNA and has been reported to inhibit clusterin expression and enhance drug efficacy in xenograft models.(More)
PURPOSE AZD2171 is a potent inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors that showed broad antitumor activity in preclinical models. Doses of up to 45 mg/d of AZD2171 are tolerable when administered alone. This study evaluated escalating doses of AZD2171 in combination with standard chemotherapy in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung(More)
INTRODUCTION Cediranib, a potent vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor, demonstrated broad pre-clinical anti-tumour activity. This study evaluated escalating cediranib doses with combination chemotherapy in advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients. METHODS Patients received cisplatin 80 mg/m(2) on day 1 and gemcitabine 1250 mg/m(2) on days 1(More)
PURPOSE To determine the clinical activity of OGX-011, an antisense inhibitor of clusterin, in combination with docetaxel/prednisone in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients were randomly assigned 1:1 to receive docetaxel/prednisone either with (arm A) or without (arm B) OGX-011 640 mg intravenously(More)
