BACKGROUND The current study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of sorafenib, an oral vascular endothelial growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, when added to standard radiotherapy and temozolomide in the first-line treatment of patients with glioblastoma multiforme. METHODS After initial surgical resection or biopsy, patients with newly(More)
PURPOSE Clinicopathologic features of 44 patients with well-documented T-cell-rich B-cell lymphomas (TCRBCLs) were reviewed to determine if there were distinguishing clinical characteristics and to evaluate the responsiveness to therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-one patients had de novo TCRBCL, while three patients had a prior diagnosis of diffuse large(More)
BACKGROUND The authors evaluated a high-intensity inpatient regimen using augmented but subtransplantation doses of multiple agents in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Two high-dose courses were given in an attempt to improve the efficacy of high-dose regimens using a single course. METHODS Forty women received treatment between October 1988 and(More)
2018 Background: Anti-angiogenesis agents have recently shown activity in the treatment of patients (pts) with GBM. We added sorafenib, a multi-targeted TKI, to the standard first-line treatment of patients with GBM. METHODS Pts with histologically documented GBM were eligible at diagnosis or after resection. Additional entry criteria: ECOG PS 0 or 1;(More)
BACKGROUND Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a subtype with poor prognosis, and treatment options are limited to chemotherapy. Because the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is overexpressed in up to 70% of these tumors, this phase II trial was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of panitumumab in combination with gemcitabine and(More)
BACKGROUND AUY922 is an inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90). Hsp90 inhibitors induce kit degradation in preclinical gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) models. This trial was designed to determine the progression-free survival (PFS) of patients with GIST refractory to or intolerant of imatinib and sunitinib. METHODS Eligible patients received(More)
