BACKGROUND we conducted a multicentre Phase 1b/2 trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of mapatumumab, a fully human agonistic monoclonal antibody to the tumour necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor 1 (TRAIL-R1) in patients with relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). METHODS forty patients with relapsed or refractory NHL were(More)
Blood vessel density is a prognostic indicator of multiple tumor types. Recently, it has been established that tumor-associated blood vessels express elevated levels of integrin alpha(v)beta3. In fact, there is evidence that integrin alpha(v)beta3 identifies the most proliferative endothelial cells within human breast carcinomas. Therefore, we evaluated(More)
PURPOSE A phase I study assessed the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary antitumor effect of mapatumumab, a fully-human agonist monoclonal antibody to the tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor 1 (TRAIL-R1, DR4), in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with advanced solid(More)
BACKGROUND Lexatumumab (HGS-ETR2) is a fully human agonistic mAb to the tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor 2 that activates the extrinsic apoptosis pathway and has potent preclinical antitumor activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS This phase 1, dose escalation study assessed the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PKs) and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and antitumor activity of mapatumumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody targeting tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor 1 (TRAIL-R1), in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with advanced solid tumors received gemcitabine 1,250(More)
BACKGROUND The literature on predictors of response to treatment of nonchronic major depression has identified shorter duration of illness, acute onset, and less severity of illness as positive predictors. Unfortunately, there are almost no data on predictors of response to treatment for chronic depression. This study examined predictors of response to(More)
BACKGROUND This study examined the validity of the early-late onset subtyping distinction in dysthymic disorder. METHODS Participants were 340 out-patients meeting DSM-III-R criteria for dysthymia and a concurrent major depressive episode (MDE). The sample was drawn from a 12-site double-blind randomized parallel group trial comparing the efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic depressions are common, disabling, and undertreated, and prior chronicity predicts future chronicity. However, few studies directly inform the acute or maintenance phase treatments of chronic depressions and even less is known about the effects of treatment on psychosocial functioning. METHOD We describe the design and rationale for 2(More)
PURPOSE To determine the role of the two angiogenic peptides, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and thymidine phosphorylase (TP) (the latter also being a target enzyme for cytotoxicity of 5-fluorouracil and methotrexate), and conventional prognostic factors in predicting relapse-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) probabilities in two(More)
BACKGROUND While it has been well documented that patients with untreated panic disorder frequently utilize emergency room (ER) and laboratory services, no published data evaluate whether selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) treatment of patients with panic disorder is associated with decreased use of these services in the managed care organization(More)
