Pazopanib, an oral inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor, and c-kit kinases, inhibits multiple cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzymes in vitro. This study in patients with advanced cancer evaluated the effect of pazopanib on CYP450 function by comparing the pharmacokinetics of CYP-specific probe drugs in(More)
This phase I, open-label, dose-escalation study assessed the maximum-tolerated dose, safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary antitumor activity of pazopanib plus lapatinib combination therapy in patients with solid tumors. Patients were to take pazopanib and lapatinib orally once daily in a fasting condition. During the escalation phase, pazopanib and(More)
PURPOSE Coadministration of morphine with oral gabapentin has been shown to increase plasma gabapentin concentrations. This study evaluated whether there was any interaction between gabapentin enacarbil (GEn), which is a prodrug of gabapentin, and morphine in terms of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, safety, and tolerability. METHODS This randomized,(More)
In this first part of a two-part investigation, the intravenous dose proportionality of dolasetron mesylate, a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, and the absolute bioavailability of oral dolasetron mesylate were investigated. In an open-label, randomized, four-way crossover design, 24 healthy men between the ages of 19 and 45 years received the following doses: 50,(More)
PURPOSE Dolasetron is a selective 5-HT3 receptor antagonist. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of cimetidine and rifampin on the steady-state pharmacokinetics of orally administered dolasetron and its active reduced metabolite, hydrodolasetron. METHODS A group of 18 healthy men (22 to 44 years old) were randomized to receive each of(More)
The single- and multiple-dose pharmacokinetics and dose-proportionality of oral dolasetron and its active metabolites over the therapeutic dose range was investigated in 18 healthy men. In an open-label, randomized, complete three-way crossover design, each subject received three separate doses: 50, 100, and 200 mg doses of dolasetron mesylate solution(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the maximum tolerated regimen (MTR), dose-limiting toxicities, and pharmacokinetics of pazopanib, an oral small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor, and c-Kit, in combination with paclitaxel. PATIENTS AND METHODS Pazopanib was given daily with weekly(More)
In an open-label, randomized, two-way complete crossover study, the influence of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics of dolasetron and its primary active metabolite, hydrodolasetron, were evaluated. Patients with renal impairment were stratified into three groups of 12 based on their 24-hour creatinine clearance (Cl(cr)): group 1, mild impairment(More)
Pazopanib is an oral angiogenesis inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor, and cytokine receptor. This open-label, randomized, crossover, phase I study evaluated the effect of low- and high-fat meals on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of pazopanib in patients with advanced solid tumors. Patients(More)
