Brequinar sodium is a 4-quinolinecarboxylic acid analogue that inhibits dihydroorotate dehydrogenase and subsequent de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis. It has shown dose-dependent antineoplastic activity against several mouse and human tumor models. This trial evaluated Brequinar given as a single daily i.v. bolus over a 5-day period repeated every 28 days.(More)
Recombinant gamma interferon (r-GIFN) demonstrates in vitro and in vivo characteristics that contrast with those of alpha and beta interferons. It has relatively weak antiviral properties, yet relatively potent immunomodulatory effects. A phase I trial was performed with r-GIFN (specific activity 2.6 X 10(6) IU/mg protein), administered as a continuous(More)
Betaseron is a genetically altered recombinant beta interferon with in vitro properties equivalent to those of native beta interferon. Nineteen patients with measurable advanced colorectal carcinoma who had no previous chemotherapy were given 30 X 10(6) IU Betaseron by iv push on Days 1-5 and 8-12 of each 28-day cycle. One of 17 evaluable patients had a(More)

Cytotoxic chemotherapy and interferon have shown synergistic antitumor activity in vitro. The purpose of this study was to determine the maximally tolerated dose of doxorubicin given every 3 weeks, in patients receiving recombinant alpha 2-interferon [10 X 10(6) IU/m2 s.c. three times per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday)] during the first 2 weeks of(More)
