Rexin-G, a nonreplicative pathology-targeted retroviral vector bearing a cytocidal cyclin G1 construct, was tested in a phase I/II study for gemcitabine-resistant pancreatic cancer. The patients received escalating doses of Rexin-G intravenously from 1 x 10(11) colony-forming units (cfu) 2-3x a week (dose 0-1) to 2 x 10(11) cfu 3x a week (dose 2) for 4(More)
BACKGROUND Aldoxorubicin, a prodrug of doxorubicin, covalently binds to serum albumin, allowing for the administration of much higher doses of doxorubicin in a previous clinical study. The current phase 1B/2 study evaluated the safety of aldoxorubicin, including preliminary efficacy and safety of its maximum tolerated dose (MTD). METHODS Patients aged 18(More)
Rexin-G, a pathotropic nanoparticle bearing a cytocidal cyclin G1 construct was tested in a phase I/II study for chemotherapy-resistant sarcomas and a phase II study for chemotherapy-resistant osteosarcoma. Twenty sarcoma patients and 22 osteosarcoma patients received escalating doses of Rexin-G intravenously from 8 x 10(11) to 24 x 10(11) colony forming(More)
The advent of pathotropic (disease-seeking) targeting has transported genetic medicine across the threshold of history with the progressive clinical validation of Rexin-G, a tumor-targeted nanosized anti-cancer agent. Achieving noteworthy single-agent efficacy and survival benefits in otherwise intractable cancers, the molecular biotechnology platform has(More)
10577 Background: Palifosfamide, a bi-functional DNA alkylator is the active metabolite of ifosfamide (IFOS), that lacks the toxicity associated with non-active IFOS metabolites and does not require activation. Recent phase II data shows single agent activity in advanced refractory sarcoma. Marked preclinical synergistic efficacy of palifosfamide in(More)
10513 Background: (1) To evaluate the safety/anti-tumor potential of intravenous (i.v.) Rexin-G in chemotherapy-resistant sarcoma (Phase I/II), and (2) to confirm the efficacy/safety of i.v. Rexin-G in chemotherapy-resistant osteosarcoma (Phase II). METHODS Twenty patients in the Phase I/II study and 22 patients in the Phase II study received 1-2 × 10e11(More)
