To evaluate the tumour response to lomeguatrib and temozolomide (TMZ) administered for 5 consecutive days every 4 weeks in patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma. Patients with stage IV metastatic colorectal carcinoma received lomeguatrib (40 mg) and TMZ (50-200 mg m(-2)) orally for 5 consecutive days every 4 weeks. Response was determined every two(More)
This paper introduces the notion of an intrinsic transversality structure on a Poincare duality space X". Such a space has an intrinsic transversality structure if the embedding of X" into its regular neighborhood W n+k in Euclidean space can be made "Poincare transverse" to a triangulation of W n+k. This notion relates to earlier work concerning(More)
This study assessed response rates to combination dacarbazine (DTIC), BCNU (carmustine), cisplatin and tamoxifen (DBPT) chemotherapy in patients with progressive metastatic melanoma previously treated with DTIC, as an evaluation of DBPT as a second-line regimen, and as an indirect comparison of DBPT with DTIC. Thirty-five consecutive patients received DBPT.(More)
A pharmacokinetically guided phase I study of topotecan and etoposide phosphate was conducted in recurrent ovarian cancer. The scheduling of the topoisomerase I and II inhibitors was determined using in vitro activity data. All patients had recurrent disease following prior platinum-containing chemotherapy. Patients had a World Health Organisation(More)
BW12C (5-[2-formyl-3-hydroxypenoxyl] pentanoic acid) stabilizes oxyhaemoglobin, causing a reversible left-shift of the oxygen saturation curve (OSC) and tissue hypoxia. The activity of mitomycin C (MMC) is enhanced by hypoxia. In this phase II study, 17 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer resistant to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) received BW12C and MMC.(More)
