PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ixabepilone in patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) resistant to anthracycline, taxane, and capecitabine, in this multicenter, phase II study. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with measurable disease who had tumor progression while receiving prior anthracycline, taxane, and capecitabine were enrolled.(More)
PURPOSE We sought to determine whether the combination of ixabepilone plus capecitabine improved overall survival (OS) compared with capecitabine alone in patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) previously treated with anthracyclines and taxanes. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 1,221 patients with MBC previously treated with anthracycline and taxanes(More)
PURPOSE This trial sought to determine, for the first time, the validity in human vaccinations of using two different recombinant vaccines in diversified prime-and-boost regimens to enhance T-cell responses to a tumor antigen. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighteen patients with advanced tumors expressing carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) were randomized to receive(More)
PURPOSE There is a need for new agents to treat metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in patients for whom anthracycline therapy has failed or is contraindicated. This study was conducted to assess the efficacy and safety of the novel antineoplastic, the epothilone B analog ixabepilone, in patients with MBC previously treated with an adjuvant anthracycline.

One model for dendritic protein sorting in neurons is based on parallels with basolateral targeting in Madin-Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) epithelial cells. The goal of this study was to further evaluate this model by analyzing the neuronal targeting of several proteins that contain well-defined basolateral sorting motifs. When we expressed FcRgammaII-B2 and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of biricodar (VX-710), an inhibitor of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP1), alone and with doxorubicin in patients with advanced malignancies. The effect of VX-710 on the tissue distribution of (99m)Tc-sestamibi, a P-gp and MRP1 substrate, was also(More)
PURPOSE Ixabepilone is the first in a new class of antineoplastic agents, the epothilones and their analogs. This international, randomized, phase II trial assessed two administration schedules of ixabepilone as second-line therapy in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients had experienced disease progression after(More)
BACKGROUND Combination therapy with ixabepilone and capecitabine (cape) is approved for use in patients with locally advanced/metastatic breast cancer that is resistant to treatment with anthracyclines or taxanes. The current study evaluated the trade-off between quality and quantity of life using quality-adjusted time without symptoms or toxicity (Q-TWiST)(More)
Limited proven treatment options exist for patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) resistant to anthracycline and taxane treatment. Ixabepilone, a novel semisynthetic analog of epothilone B, has demonstrated single-agent activity in MBC resistant to anthracyclines and taxanes. In combination with capecitabine in a phase III trial (CA163-046) in this(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the safety, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), recommended phase II dose, and efficacy of the epothilone B analogue ixabepilone plus capecitabine in anthracycline-pretreated/ resistant and taxane-resistant metastatic breast cancer (MBC). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 106 patients were enrolled. The study(More)
