PURPOSE Etirinotecan pegol (NKTR-102) is a unique, long-acting topoisomerase-I inhibitor with prolonged systemic exposure to SN38 (7-ethyl-10-hydroxycamptothecin), the active metabolite of irinotecan. This randomized phase II trial investigated two dosing schedules of etirinotecan pegol in patients with platinum-resistant/refractory ovarian carcinoma. (More)
Melanoma has been a long-standing focal point for immunotherapy development. In this review, we explore the evolution of melanoma treatments with particular attention to the history and recent advances in melanoma immunotherapy. We also discuss novel combinations of these modalities and their potential to offer novel therapeutic options for patients with(More)
5047 Background: NKTR-102, a topoisomerase-I inhibitor-polymer conjugate with markedly reduced peak concentrations and a continuous concentration profile, demonstrated broad antitumor activity per RECIST in a phase I study. The original phase 2 study in platinum-resistant/refractory ovarian cancer showed a 21% confirmed objective response rate (ORR)(More)
Multiple myelomas is a neoplastic plasma cell disorder that accounts for one percent of all cancers and 13% of hematologic malignancies. Although primarily known to be a bone marrow disorder, it can metastasize to extramedullary sites or it can present as a solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma.
