We describe a standard set of quantity names and symbols related to the estimation of kinetic parameters from dynamic contrast-enhanced T(1)-weighted magnetic resonance imaging data, using diffusable agents such as gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA). These include a) the volume transfer constant K(trans) (min(-1)); b) the volume of extravascular(More)

Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) has recently emerged as a promising method for both diagnosis and prognosis of cancer despite considerable variation in both the methods of data acquisition and analysis. Both to facilitate integration of results from multiple institutions and to ensure that the data reflect the underlying(More)
PURPOSE AMG 386 is an investigational peptide-Fc fusion protein (ie, peptibody) that inhibits angiogenesis by preventing the interaction of angiopoietin-1 and angiopoietin-2 with their receptor, Tie2. This first-in-human study evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics, and antitumor activity of AMG 386 in adults with advanced solid(More)
PURPOSE ZD6126 is a novel vascular targeting agent currently undergoing clinical evaluation. It acts by destabilizing the microtubulin of fragile and proliferating neoendothelial cells in tumors. The drug leads to blood vessel congestion, the selective destruction of the vasculature, and extensive necrosis in experimental tumors. The aim of the study(More)
PURPOSE Identifying suitable markers of biologic activity is important when assessing novel compounds such as angiogenesis inhibitors to optimize the dose and schedule of therapy. Here we present the pharmacodynamic response to acute dosing of AG-013736 measured by dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
The authors represent a cooperative group of 15 institutions that examined the feasibility of using metabolic features observed in vivo with 1H-magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy to characterize brain tumors of the glial type. The institutions provided blinded, centralized MR spectroscopy data processing long with independent central review of MR(More)
Flavone acetic acid (FAA), a new drug with broad activity against transplanted solid tumors of mice, induces nonrepairable DNA single strand breaks that correlate with therapeutic efficacy. To test the hypothesis that the inability of the cells to repair single strand breaks is associated with a disruption of tumor energy metabolism, in vivo 31P nuclear(More)
BACKGROUND ZD6126 is a novel vascular-targeting agent that disrupts the endothelial tubulin cytoskeleton causing selective occlusion of tumor vasculature and extensive tumor necrosis. This Phase I clinical study was conducted to evaluate the dose and administration schedule of ZD6126. METHODS Adult patients with solid tumors refractory to existing(More)
A standard differential calculus-based propagation of error treatment is applied to the traditional chemical-exchange Henderson-Hasselbalch NMR pH model in which the reference shift is pH independent. It is seen naturally from this analysis that (i) the error minimum in derived pH occurs in the region where pH and indicator pKa are equal and that (ii) the(More)
Although dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) have great potential to provide routine assessment of cancer treatment response, their widespread application has been hampered by a lack of standards for use. Thus, the National Cancer Institute convened a workshop to assess developments and(More)
