PURPOSE The DNA methyltransferase inhibitor 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine (decitabine) induces DNA demethylation and re-expression of epigenetically silenced genes, and increases carboplatin sensitivity of tumor xenograft models. We designed a clinical study to determine the feasibility of delivering a dose of decitabine, combined with carboplatin, that would be(More)
A dose-escalation, phase I study evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenomics, and efficacy of ES-285, a novel agent isolated from a marine mollusc, in adult cancer patients. Patients received a 24-hour i.v. infusion of ES-285 once every 3 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The starting dose was 4 mg/m(2). Dose escalation(More)
XR11576 is an oral topoisomerase I and II inhibitor. The objectives of this phase I study were to assess the dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and to describe the pharmacokinetics (PKs) of XR11576 when administered orally on days 1-5 every 3 weeks to patients with advanced solid tumours. Patients were treated(More)
3023 Background: C is the first specific, fully human, monoclonal antibody to target IGF-1R in clinical trials. It potently inhibits IGF-1R signaling, enhancing D antitumour activity. This trial investigated the safety, feasibility, dose limiting toxicity (DLT), PK and antitumor activity of D administered with C every 3 weeks. PD studies evaluated(More)
3022 Background: PARP is a DNA strand break and base damage repair enzyme. Ku inhibits PARP-1 and 2 with a mean IC50 of 2nM. Inhibition of PARP leads to defective DNA repair and induces selective cytotoxicity in cells with defective homologous recombination repair through, for example, loss of BRCA 1/2 function (Farmer et al, Nature 2005 Apr(More)
DHA-paclitaxel is a conjugate of paclitaxel and the fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid. Preclinical studies have demonstrated increased activity, relative to paclitaxel, with the potential for an improved therapeutic ratio. We conducted a phase I study to determine the maximum tolerated doses of DHA-paclitaxel and carboplatin when administered in combination.(More)
