The prognosis associated with brain metastasis arising from breast cancer is very poor. Eribulin is a microtubule dynamic inhibitor synthesized from halichondrin B, a natural marine product. In a phas...
This study aimed to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the resistance of breast cancer to eribulin. Seven eribulin-resistant breast cancer cell lines (MCF7/E, BT474/E, ZR75-1/E, SKBR3/E, MDA-MB-231/E...
Evidence on the management and treatment of male breast cancer is scant. We report the analysis of a multicenter Italian series of patients with male breast cancer treated with eribulin. To our knowle...
There is no standard recommendation for metastatic breast cancer treatment (MBC) after two chemotherapy regimens. Eribulin (Halaven(®)) has shown a significant improvement in overall survival (OS) in...
Inhibition of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signalling has emerged as a new treatment strategy for oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Previously, we found that loss of EGFR expression in O...
This phase II trial studies how well eribulin mesylate works in treating patients with osteosarcoma that has come back after treatment (recurrent) or has not responded to treatment (refrac...
This phase II trial studies how well eribulin mesylate works in treating patients with advanced or recurrent cervical cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as eribulin mesylate, work in...
The purpose of this study is to assess whether eribulin mesylate (E7389) has an impact on the electrocardiogram (ECG) with focus on cardiac repolarization, as measured by QT/QTc interval a...
This pilot trial studies the concentration of eribulin mesylate in the brain of patients with breast, bladder, or non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to the brain (metastases). Drug...
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of eribulin mesylate and to see how well it works in treating patients with cancer of the urothelium that has spread to nearby ...
Natural product isolated from Streptomyces pilosus. It forms iron complexes and is used as a chelating agent, particularly in the mesylate form.
