NB1011 Administered by Continuous Infusion in Cancers That Overexpress Thymidylate Synthase (TS)
The purpose of this trial is to assess the tolerability and safety of NB1011 in the treatment of patients with cancers that overexpress TS, such as ovarian, gastrointestinal, colorectal, bladder, breast, and lung cancers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Neuroectodermal Tumors, Primitive
A group of malignant tumors of the nervous system that feature primitive cells with elements of neuronal and/or glial differentiation. Use of this term is limited by some authors to central nervous system tumors and others include neoplasms of similar origin which arise extracranially (i.e., NEUROECTODERMAL TUMORS, PRIMITIVE, PERIPHERAL). This term is also occasionally used as a synonym for MEDULLOBLASTOMA. In general, these tumors arise in the first decade of life and tend to be highly malignant. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2059)
Tumors in any part of the heart. They include primary cardiac tumors and metastatic tumors to the heart. Their interference with normal cardiac functions can cause a wide variety of symptoms including HEART FAILURE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; or EMBOLISM.
Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition.
Perivascular Epithelioid Cell Neoplasms
A family of mesenchymal tumors composed of histologically and immunohistochemically distinctive perivascular epithelioid cells. These cells do not have a normal anatomic homolog. (From Fletcher CDM, et. al., World Health Organization Classification of Tumors: Pathology and Genetics of Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone, 2002).
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of NB1011 in t...
The pathogenesis of adrenal tumors is still not fully elucidated and the treatment options for malignant tumors are poor. The current study investigates different aspects of the pathogenes...
This study is a Phase I study using vinblastine and sirolimus in patients with relapsed solid tumors including selected brain tumors and lymphoma. The investigators hypothesis is that the...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as valproic acid, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Valpr...
RATIONALE: COL-3 may stop the growth of brain tumors by stopping blood flow to the tumor. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of COL-3 in treating patients who have progr...
Tumors of the heart and the great vessels are very rare disease, and there are many disorders such as tumors originated from the heart and great vessels, metastatic tumors, and tumor-like lesions whic...
Intradural spinal tumors are classified in extra- and intramedullary tumors. The most frequent intradural-extramedullary tumors are meningiomas and neurinomas. Among the intradural-intramedullary tumo...
Spinal tumors are classified according to their location in extradural, intradural-extramedullary, and intradural-intramedullary tumors. The most frequent extradural tumors are metastases. Primary spi...
The purpose of this article is to highlight the imaging features of cystic pancreatic tumors. Common cystic pancreatic tumors include serous microcystic adenomas, mucinous cystic tumors, intraductal p...
Surgical pathologists, using routine histological techniques and tumor morphology, have established the overall taxonomy of adrenal cortical tumors that dictates care of patients with these tumors. Ho...
