OBJECTIVE To explore the prognostic and predictive value of baseline variables in 512 patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer from the phase III Immunotherapy for Prostate Adenocarcinoma Treatment (IMPACT) trial who were randomized to receive sipuleucel-T or control. METHODS The most powerful of these prognostic factors, baseline(More)
We use scattering theoretic methods to prove strong dynamical and exponential local-ization for one-dimensional, continuum, Anderson-type models with singular distributions ; in particular, the case of a Bernoulli distribution is covered. The operators we consider model alloys composed of at least two distinct types of randomly dispersed atoms. Our main(More)
PURPOSE Lapuleucel-T (APC8024), an autologous active cellular immunotherapy, was prepared from peripheral-blood mononuclear cells, including antigen-presenting cells, that were activated in vitro with recombinant fusion protein BA7072. This antigen construct consisted of sequences from intracellular and extracellular domains of human epidermal growth factor(More)
We use scattering theoretic methods to prove exponential local-ization for random displacement models in one dimension. The operators we consider model both quantum and classical wave propagation. Our main tools are the reeection and transmission coeecients for compactly supported single site perturbations. We show that randomly displaced, non-reeectionless(More)
Pretargeted radioimmunotherapy (PRIT) has the potential to increase the dose of radionuclide delivered to tumors while limiting radiation to normal tissues. The purpose of this phase 1 trial is to assess safety of this multistep approach using a novel tetrameric single-chain anti-CD20-streptavidin fusion protein (B9E9FP) as the targeting moiety in patients(More)
BACKGROUND Sipuleucel-T is a US Food and Drug Administration-approved immunotherapy for asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Its mechanism of action is not fully understood. This prospective trial evaluated the direct immune effects of systemically administered sipuleucel-T on prostatic cancer tissue(More)
Exposure of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) to an 18-base c-myb antisense oligomer before mitogen or antigen stimulation resulted in almost complete inhibition of c-myb messenger RNA and protein synthesis and blockade of T lymphocyte proliferation. Expression of early and late activation markers, interleukin-2 receptor and transferrin receptor,(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the safety of, immune response induced by, and efficacy of treatment with lapuleucel-T (APC8024) in patients with HER-2/neu-expressing tumors. Lapuleucel-T is an investigational active immunotherapy product consisting of autologous peripheral blood mononuclear cells, including antigen presenting cells, which are cultured(More)
The c-myb protooncogene is preferentially expressed in hematopoietic cells, and its encoded protein, Myb, is required for hematopoietic cell proliferation. To analyze the relative Myb dependence of normal and leukemic human hematopoietic progenitor cells, normal bone marrow cells, several types of leukemic blast cells, and 1:1 mixtures of normal and(More)
