PURPOSE LBH589 is a novel histone deacetylase inhibitor that inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in tumor cell lines. In this phase I study, LBH589 was administered i.v. as a 30-minute infusion on days 1 to 7 of a 21-day cycle. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Fifteen patients (median age, 63 years; range, 42-87 years) with acute myeloid leukemia (13(More)
The inhibition by imatinib of the cytochrome p450 3A4 isoenzyme may reduce the CYP3A4-mediated metabolic clearance of clinically important coadministered drugs. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of the coadministration of imatinib on the pharmacokinetics of simvastatin, a probe CYP3A4 substrate. In total, 20 patients with chronic(More)
BACKGROUND A complete remission is essential for prolonging survival in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Daunorubicin is a cornerstone of the induction regimen, but the optimal dose is unknown. In older patients, it is usual to give daunorubicin at a dose of 45 to 50 mg per square meter of body-surface area. METHODS Patients in whom AML or(More)
The BCR-ABL fusion, the molecular equivalent of the Philadelphia translocation, gains importance for treatment stratification in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In this prospective study, samples from 478 patients with CD10(+) B-cell precursor ALL (c-ALL and pre-B ALL) underwent BCR-ABL reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)(More)
The best strategy for incorporating imatinib in front-line treatment of Ph+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has not been established. We enrolled 92 patients with newly diagnosed Ph+ ALL in a prospective, multicenter study to investigate sequentially 2 treatment schedules with imatinib administered concurrent to or alternating with a uniform induction(More)
This phase 2 pilot study was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of imatinib mesylate in patients with c-kit-positive acute myeloid leukemia (AML) refractory to or not eligible for chemotherapy. Twenty-one patients were enrolled and received imatinib 600 mg orally once daily. Five responses were seen primarily in patients, starting with(More)
PURPOSE WX-G250 is a chimeric monoclonal antibody that binds to carbonic anhydrase IX(G250/MN), which is present on greater than 95% of RCCs of the clear cell subtype. The suggested working mechanism of WX-G250 is by ADCC. Because the number of activated ADCC effector cells can be increased by a low dose interleukin-2 pulsing schedule, a multicenter study(More)
A possible link between protein kinase C (PKC) and P-glycoprotein (P-gp)-mediated-multidrug resistance (MDR) was assumed from studies on MDR cell lines selected in vitro. The functional relevance of PKC for the MDR phenotype remains unclear, and the involvement of a particular PKC isozyme in clinically occurring drug resistance is not known. Recently, we(More)
PURPOSE Radical cystectomy as standard treatment of muscle-invasive urothelial carcinoma of the urinary bladder cures less than 50% of patients with locally advanced bladder cancer. We compared two adjuvant combination chemotherapies in patients with stage pT3a-4a and/or pathologic node-positive transitional-cell carcinoma of the bladder after radical(More)

PURPOSE Histone deacetylase inhibitors can alter gene expression and mediate diverse antitumor activities. Herein, we report the safety and activity of the histone deacetylase inhibitor panobinostat (LBH589) in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and identify genes commonly regulated by panobinostat. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Panobinostat was administered orally(More)
