To determine what alternative pathways may act as mechanisms of bypass resistance to type 1 insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF-1R) blockade in rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), we compared expression of receptor tyrosine kinase activity in a number of IGF-1R antibody-resistant and -sensitive RMS cell lines. We found that platelet-derived growth factor receptor(More)
Long-term survival in patients with metastatic, relapsed, or recurrent Ewing sarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma is dismal. Irinotecan, a topoisomerase 1 inhibitor, has activity in these sarcomas, but due to poor bioavailability of its active metabolite (SN-38) has had limited clinical efficacy. In this study we have evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of(More)
