PURPOSE The receptors for hepatocyte and vascular endothelial cell growth factors (MET and VEGFR2, respectively) are critical oncogenic mediators in gastric adenocarcinoma. The purpose is to examine the safety and efficacy of foretinib, an oral multikinase inhibitor targeting MET, RON, AXL, TIE-2, and VEGFR2 receptors, for the treatment of metastatic(More)
The treatment of acute leukaemias, which are the most common paediatric cancers, has improved considerably in recent decades, with complete response rates approaching approximately 90% in some cases. However, there remains a major need for treatments for patients who do not achieve or maintain complete remission, for whom the prognosis is very poor. In this(More)
Eliglustat tartrate (Genz-112638), a specific inhibitor of glucosylceramide synthase, is under development as an oral substrate reduction therapy for Gaucher disease type 1 (GD1). A multinational, open-label, single-arm phase 2 study of 26 GD1 patients (16 female, 10 male; mean age, 34 years) evaluated the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of(More)
Clofarabine for injection is a second-generation nucleoside analog approved in the United States (Clolar(®)) and Europe (Evoltra(®)) for the treatment of pediatric relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This report describes the population pharmacokinetics of clofarabine and its metabolite 6-ketoclofarabine in adult and pediatric patients with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to investigate the pharmacology of clofarabine and its triphosphate and the pharmacodynamic actions in circulating blasts obtained from acute leukemia patients who entered a Phase I clinical trial of clofarabine. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Adults with refractory acute leukemias including lymphoblastic (ALL), myelogenous (AML)(More)
Tumor growth profiles were simulated for 2 years using the Wang and Claret models under a phase 3 clinical trial design. Profiles were censored when tumor size increased >20% from nadir similar to clinical practice. The percent of patients censored varied from 0% (perfect case) to 100% (real-life case). The model used to generate the data was then fit to(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to characterize tumor growth kinetics in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) after treatment with pazopanib or placebo and to identify predictive patient-specific covariates. METHODS Different tumor growth models that included patient-specific covariates were fit to tumor growth data from Phase 2 (n = 220) and(More)
The population pharmacokinetics of plasma clofarabine and intracellular clofarabine triphosphate were characterized in pediatric patients with acute leukemias. Traditional model-building techniques with NONMEM were used. Covariates were entered into the base model using a forward selection significance level of .05 and a backwards deletion criterion of(More)
PURPOSE This phase I, open-label, randomized, 2-part crossover study assessed the safety, pharmacokinetics and relative bioavailability of single doses of the anticancer MET inhibitor foretinib (formerly known as GSK1363089, EXEL-2880 and XL-880) free base tablet formulation compared to a bisphosphate salt capsule formulation (Part 1), and assessed the(More)
PURPOSE Based on its mechanistic similarity to fludarabine and cladribine and the success of these analogues for treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), we hypothesized that clofarabine would be effective for indolent leukemias. The present study was conducted to determine the efficacy and cellular pharmacology during clinical trials of(More)
