PURPOSE Activating mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are associated with enhanced response to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), whereas KRAS mutations translate into poor patient outcomes. We hypothesized that analysis of plasma for EGFR and KRAS mutations from shed tumor DNA would have clinical(More)
PURPOSE Gemcitabine monotherapy is the standard palliative chemotherapy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Gemcitabine requires plasma membrane nucleoside transporter proteins to efficiently enter cells and exert it cytotoxicity. In vitro studies have demonstrated that deficiency of human equilibrative nucleoside transporter 1 (hENT1), the most widely abundant(More)
MUC1 is a mucinous glycoprotein which is overexpressed and under or aberrantly glycosylated in many human malignancies. MUC1 is associated with cellular transformation and can confer resistance to genotoxic agents. L-BLP25 is a peptide vaccine strategy that targets the exposed core peptide of MUC1. In preclinical studies, L-BLP25 induced a cellular immune(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) have an unfavourable prognosis with few treatment options. Polatuzumab vedotin is an antibody-drug conjugate containing an anti-CD79B monoclonal antibody conjugated to the microtubule-disrupting agent monomethyl auristatin E. We aimed to assess the safety and clinical activity(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors given concurrently with chemotherapy do not improve patient outcomes compared with chemotherapy alone in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). On the basis of preclinical models, we hypothesized pharmacodynamic separation, achieved by intermittent delivery of epidermal growth(More)
BACKGROUND Dacomitinib is an irreversible pan-HER tyrosine-kinase inhibitor with preclinical and clinical evidence of activity in non-small-cell lung cancer. We designed BR.26 to assess whether dacomitinib improved overall survival in heavily pretreated patients with this disease. METHODS In this double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, phase 3(More)
PURPOSE The local control of inoperable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) using standard radiotherapy (RT) doses is inadequate. Dose escalation is a potential strategy to improve the local control for patients with NSCLC; however, the optimal dose required for local control in this setting is unknown. METHODS AND MATERIALS Patients with unresectable or(More)
BACKGROUND Erlotinib is a key therapy for advanced NSCLC. Concurrent AS therapy with TKIs might reduce TKI plasma levels. Because of gastroesophageal reflux disease prevalence, this retrospective analysis was undertaken to determine if coadministering erlotinib with AS therapy affected NSCLC outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS Records of advanced NSCLC(More)
Renewed interest in cancer vaccine strategies has occurred with the identification of tumour-associated antigens and a further understanding of the immunoregulatory pathways involved in cancer development and progression. MUC1 is a mucinous glycoprotein that is overexpressed and aberrantly glycosylated in many human malignancies, including prostate cancer.(More)
Background Cetuximab is a chimeric monoclonal antibody targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). The recommended dosage is an initial load of 400 mg/m2 intravenously (IV) followed by a weekly maintenance dose of 250 mg/m2. It has been reported retrospectively that cetuximab efficacy was correlated with dose-related severity of skin rash. This(More)
