BACKGROUND CKD-602, a topoisomerase I inhibitor, has antitumor activity in a broad spectrum of tumor types. STEALTH liposomal CKD-602 (S-CKD602) prolongs circulation of CKD-602 in plasma, increases drug exposure in tumors and improves efficacy compared with free drug. MATERIALS AND METHODS Different dosing regimens of S-CKD602, free CKD-602 and topotecan(More)
To test the hypothesis that diminished sodium delivery to the distal tubular site of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) action accounts for renal ANP resistance in cirrhosis, 12 cirrhotic patients with ascites were studied at baseline and during the infusion of ANP alone (0.15 micrograms/kg/min), mannitol alone (4 g/hr), and ANP plus mannitol for 3 hours(More)
PURPOSE Aldesleukin, recombinant human IL2, is an effective immunotherapy for metastatic melanoma and renal cancer, with durable responses in approximately 10% of patients; however, severe side effects limit maximal dosing and thus the number of patients able to receive treatment and potential cure. NKTR-214 is a prodrug of conjugated IL2, retaining the(More)
