BACKGROUND The multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor sunitinib has shown activity against pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in preclinical models and phase 1 and 2 trials. METHODS We conducted a multinational, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 3 trial of sunitinib in patients with advanced, well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine(More)
PURPOSE Aberrant vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) signaling have been shown to play a role in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) pathogenesis and are associated with decreased survival. We evaluated the clinical activity and tolerability of sunitinib malate (SU11248), an oral, multitargeted tyrosine kinase(More)
BACKGROUND Sunitinib malate (SUTENT) has promising single-agent activity given on Schedule 4/2 (4 weeks on treatment followed by 2 weeks off treatment) in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS We examined the activity of sunitinib on a continuous daily dosing (CDD) schedule in an open-label, multicentre phase II study in patients with(More)
PURPOSE Sunitinib plus erlotinib may enhance antitumor activity compared with either agent alone in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), based on the importance of the signaling pathways involved in tumor growth, angiogenesis, and metastasis. This phase III trial investigated overall survival (OS) for sunitinib plus erlotinib versus placebo plus erlotinib in(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare but are frequently diagnosed at advanced stages and require systemic therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS This multicenter, open-label, phase II study evaluated sunitinib in Japanese patients with well-differentiated pancreatic NET. Patients received sunitinib 37.5 mg/day on a continuous daily dosing(More)
7001 Background: Sunitinib malate (SU11248) is an oral, multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting VEGFR, PDGFR, KIT, FLT3 and RET on tumor cells, tumor neovasculature and pericytes. This is the initial report of an open-label, two-stage, multicenter phase II trial evaluating the single-agent activity of sunitinib in refractory NSCLC. METHODS(More)
Secondary malignant neoplasms (SMN) are increasingly common complications of cancer therapy that have proven difficult to model in mice. Clinical observations suggest that the development of SMN correlates with radiation dose; however, this relationship has not been investigated systematically. We developed a novel procedure for administering fractionated(More)
4008 Background: In a double-blind phase 3 trial, SU improved PFS vs PBO (11.4 vs 5.5 months; HR 0.418, 95% CI 0.263, 0.662; p=0.0001) and was well tolerated in pts with advanced well-differentiated, unresectable NET that had progressed in ≤12 months (NEJM, Feb 2011). Initial OS showed a benefit for SU over PBO, but median OS was not reached (NR). Here we(More)
PURPOSE Sunitinib is an oral, multitargeted receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor of the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor and multiple other growth factor receptors. We assessed the safety and efficacy of sunitinib in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer after failure of standard therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-four patients were(More)
PURPOSE Sunitinib in combination with docetaxel enhances antitumor activity in xenograft models of human breast and non-small cell lung cancer. We assessed the maximum tolerated doses (MTDs), safety, pharmacokinetic profiles, and preliminary efficacy of sunitinib plus docetaxel in patients with advanced solid tumors. METHODS In this phase I study,(More)
