The development and use of antiangiogenesis agents, particularly those targeting vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), has become an integral component of anticancer regimens for many tumor types. This review is intended to highlight some of the most important clinical successes and failures of anti-VEGF therapies, and where possible, to suggest(More)
BACKGROUND Esophageal and gastric cancers often present at an advanced stage. Systemic chemotherapy is the mainstay of treatment, but survival with current regimens remains poor. We evaluated the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the combination capecitabine, oxaliplatin, and bevacizumab in the treatment of metastatic esophagogastric adenocarcinomas. (More)
PURPOSE VEGF, mTOR, and EGFR inhibitors have demonstrated anti-tumor and anti-angiogenic effects alone and in combination with each other. This study evaluated the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of bevacizumab, everolimus, and erlotinib combination. METHODS Doublet therapy consisted of bevacizumab at 10 mg/kg every 14 days and everolimus 5 mg(More)
PURPOSE Preclinical data suggest concurrent inhibition of VEGF, mTOR and EGFR pathways may augment antitumor and antiangiogenic effects compared to inhibition of each pathway alone. This study evaluated the maximum tolerated dose/recommended phase II dose and safety and tolerability of bevacizumab, everolimus and panitumumab drug combination. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To define the maximum tolerated dose, clinical toxicities, and pharmacodynamics of bevacizumab, everolimus, and panobinostat (LBH-589) when administered in combination to patients with advanced solid tumor malignancies. EXPERIMENT DESIGN Subjects received 10 mg of panobinostat three times weekly, 5 or 10 mg everolimus daily, and bevacizumab at 10(More)
Targeting multiple regulators of tumor angiogenesis have the potential to improve treatment efficacy. Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody directed against vascular endothelial growth factor and ABT-510 is a synthetic analog of thrombospondin, an endogenous angiogenesis inhibitor. Dual inhibition may result in additional benefit. We evaluated the safety,(More)
PURPOSE Dasatinib inhibits src family kinases and has anti-angiogenic properties. We conducted a phase I study of dasatinib, capecitabine, oxaliplatin, and bevacizumab (CapeOx/bevacizumab), with an expansion cohort in metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS Patients were enrolled in a dose escalation cohort to establish the maximum tolerated dose(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to determine the maximally tolerated dose, recommended phase II dose and toxicity profile of capecitabine plus imatinib mesylate combination. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-four patients with advanced solid tumors were treated with capecitabine twice daily on days 1-14 and imatinib mesylate once daily on a 21-day cycle.(More)
To define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), recommended phase II dose (RPTD), and assess safety and tolerability for the combination of pazopanib plus TH-302, an investigational hypoxia-activated prodrug (HAP), in adult patients with advanced solid tumors. This was an open-label, non-randomized, single-center, phase I trial consisting 2 stages. Stage 1 was(More)
AIM To determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD), recommended phase II dose (RPTD) and toxicity profile of gemcitabine plus irinotecan combination. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-nine evaluable patients with advanced solid tumors were treated with gemcitabine (Gem) and irinotecan (Iri) on days 1, 8 and 15 of a 28-day cycle. Dose levels included Gem/Iri(More)
