Soluble Fas (sFas) and cytokeratin 18-Asp396 neoepitope (CK18-NE) were measured by ELISA in serial samples from 42 patients with different cancers under chemotherapy and were compared with pharmacokinetic results. Baseline sFas (median 6146 pg/ml, range 3123-16294 pg/ml) was higher in cancer patients than in normal subjects (median 4954 pglml, range(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES OTX015 (MK-8628) is a novel inhibitor of the bromodomain and extraterminal (BET)-bromodomain (BRD) protein family, binding specifically to bromodomains BRD2/3/4 and impacting the epigenetic regulation of several oncogenes. We characterized the pharmacokinetics of this first-in-class BET-BRD inhibitor administered as a single agent,(More)
BACKGROUND Using a human small cell lung cancer (SCLC) xenografted in nude mice, we have previously reported enhanced tumor growth inhibition following chemotherapy in combination with imatinib (STI571). We therefore investigated the in vivo impact of imatinib on the pharmacokinetics and efficacy of chemotherapy. METHODS Two different human tumors were(More)
This study evaluated the tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary antitumor activity of EZN-2208, a water-soluble poly(ethylene) glycol conjugate of SN38. Patients with advanced malignancies were enrolled in dose-escalating cohorts (3 + 3 design). EZN-2208 was administered as a 1-h intravenous infusion given weekly for 3 weeks per each 4-week cycle.(More)
Telomeres, the nucleoprotein complexes located at the ends of chromosomes, are involved in chromosome protection and genome stability. Telomeric repeat binding factor 1 (TRF1) and telomeric repeat binding factor 2 (TRF2) are the two telomeric proteins that bind to duplex telomeric DNA through interactions between their C-terminal domain and several guanines(More)
Granulomas are the hallmark of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. As the host fails to control the bacteria, the center of the granuloma exhibits necrosis resulting from the dying of infected macrophages. The release of the intracellular pool of nucleotides into the surrounding medium may modulate the response of newly infected macrophages, although this(More)
Transgenic mice expressing the polyoma middle T oncoprotein (PyMT) in the mammary epithelium were explored by multimodal imaging to monitor longitudinally spontaneous tumor growth and response to chemotherapy. Positron emission tomography (PET) with 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-d-glucose ([18F]FDG) and 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F]fluorothymidine ([18F]FLT), single photon(More)
PURPOSE To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of oral cisplatin (CP Ethypharm®) in combination with radiotherapy in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and the recommended dose for phase II trials. PATIENTS AND METHODS Phase I, multicenter, open-labelled, non-comparative and dose escalating trial. CP Ethypharm® was administered on five(More)
High-dose methotrexate treatment requires pharmacological monitoring in order to tailor administration of folinic acid to reduce side effects. The aim of the study was to validate the adaptation of the EMIT reagent on the l'Unicel DxC 600® Beckman Coulter. The establishment of two assays was necessary to obtain a quantification limit as low as possible(More)
1051 Background: Lapatinib is an effective anti-HER-2 therapy in LAMBC pts, currently investigated in the adjuvant setting. Following anthracyclines, taxanes and capecitabine, VNR is an active agent in metastatic setting. Its main toxicity consists of neutropenia and may challenge the standard weekly, day D1 and D8 regimen. We investigated the combination(More)
