PURPOSE Imatinib (Glivec) has been established as a highly effective therapy for chronic myeloid leukemia and gastrointestinal tumors. The recommended daily dosage of 400-600 mg requires simultaneous intake of up to six of the current 100-mg capsules. Due to the need to swallow multiple capsules per dose, there is a potential negative impact on treatment(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of weekly patupilone, a natural epothilone B, in patients with advanced solid tumors. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients were treated with patupilone (0.3 to 3.6 mg/m2) for 6 weeks on/3 weeks off or 3 weeks on/1 week off. Dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), MTD, and pharmacokinetics were determined(More)
The family of VEGF receptors are important mediators of angiogenesis, which is essential for tumour growth and metastasis. PTK/ZK is a multiple VEGF receptor inhibitor that blocks the activity of all known VEGF receptor tyrosine kinases. This phase I/II trial evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics and efficacy of PTK/ZK in patients with liver metastases(More)
We propose numerical and graphical methods for outlier detection in hierarchical Bayes modeling and analyses of repeated measures regression data from multiple subjects; data from a single subject are generically called a " curve. " The first-stage of our model has curve-specific regression coefficients with possibly autoregressive errors of a prespecified(More)
We propose numerical and graphical methods for outlier detection in hierarchical Bayes analyses of repeated measures regression data. We consider a model that allows observations on the same subject (typically a curve of measurements taken at equidistant time points or locations) to have autoregressive errors of a prespeciied order. First-stage regression(More)
