Paclitaxel-based chemoradiotherapy was proven to be efficacious in treating patients with advanced esophageal cancer. However, the toxicity and the development of resistance limited its anticancer efficiency. The present study was to evaluate the antitumor effects of lapatinib, a dual tyrosine inhibitor of both epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), combined with paclitaxel on the esophageal squamous cancer.
Most bioanalytical methods reported in literature for the quantitation of lapatinib in human plasma are either for lapatinib alone or lapatinib administered along with other tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) for therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) in cancer patients. Recently there was a need for the quantitation of lapatinib in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) receiving hemodialysis (HD). This special patient population normally receives many concomitant medications which have the potential to in...
This phase I study was aimed at determining the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended dose (RD) for oral S-1 plus paclitaxel combination therapy in elderly patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Chemotherapy-naïve patients (age, >70 years) with stage III/IV NSCLC were treated with paclitaxel intravenously at four dose levels (DLs), 60, 70, 80, and 90 mg/m, on day 1 and 8, and with S-1 (80 mg/m) orally on days 1-14 every 3 weeks. MTD was defined as the dose at which two of the initial ...
Pancreatic cancer is a highly lethal malignancy. Developments in recent years have broadened our therapeutic armamentarium. Novel drugs such as nab-paclitaxel, liposomal irinotecan and chemotherapy regimens such as FOLFIRINOX have been successfully tested in clinical trials. Data on patients outside of clinical trials are scarce but necessary to assess and improve the standard of care. We present data on treatment and survival of 1,174 patients with locally advanced, inoperable or metastatic pancreatic duct...
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of lapatinib, a dual inhibitor of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and HER-2, on the radiosensitivity of murine bladder tumor line-2 (MBT-2) cells in vitro and in vivo. MATERIAL AND METHODS MBT-2 cells were pretreated with lapatinib at doses ranging from 200-1,000 nM for 30 min followed by radiation at doses ranging from 2.5-10 Gy for 30 min. A clonogenic assay (colony formation assay) assessed cell survival. Western blot measured phosphoryl...
The carboplatin/paclitaxel doublet remains the chemotherapy backbone for the initial treatment of ovarian cancer. This two-drug regimen, with carboplatin dosed using the Calvert formula, yielded convincing noninferior outcomes when compared with the prior, more toxic, regimen of cisplatin/paclitaxel. Carboplatin's dose-limiting toxicity is thrombocytopenia; however, when this drug is properly dosed and combined with paclitaxel, the doublet's cycle 1 dose in chemotherapy-naive women is generally safe. Carbop...
We present a patient with metastatic melanoma who had a complete response to second line chemotherapy with paclitaxel and carboplatin.
The human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer with overexpression of HER2 accounts for approximately 25% of breast cancers and is more aggressive than other types of breast cancer. Lapatinib has been widely used as a HER2-targeted therapy, however, a number of patients develop lapatinib resistance and still suffer from poor prognosis. Therefore, it is essential to identify novel therapeutic targets that could overcome lapatinib resistance. In this study, we carried out phosphopr...
Combination treatment with ramucirumab and paclitaxel shows significant efficacy in patients with advanced gastric cancer as a second-line standard therapy. However, limited information is available about the development of pneumonitis associated with this treatment in clinical practice. This study aimed to characterize this form of pneumonitis and identify the risk factors for its onset.
We conducted a single-arm prospective phase II study to determine the efficacy and safety of the first-line treatment of advanced pancreatic cancer with nab-paclitaxel and S-1 followed by S-1 maintenance therapy.
Dual anti-HER2 blockade increased the rate of pathologic complete response (pCR) in the Neoadjuvant Lapatinib and/or Trastuzumab Treatment Optimisation (NeoALTTO) trial, and high immune gene expression was associated with pCR in all treatment arms. So far, no marker has been identified that is specifically associated with the benefit from dual HER2 blockade.
Paclitaxel is one of the most widely used anti-cancer drugs, but numerous case reports of thrombotic events in the cancer patients using paclitaxel raise concern over its pro-thrombotic risk.
Phase III trials have shown improved survival in ovarian cancer patients when the anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy bevacizumab is added to first-line chemotherapy. However, further evidence is needed regarding bevacizumab when used with dose-dense paclitaxel/carboplatin chemotherapy in advanced ovarian cancer patients. This single-arm trial enrolled 184 advanced-stage (III-IV) epithelial ovarian cancer patients following primary debulking. Enrollees were treated with dose-dense paclita...
The first phase II clinical trial aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of S-1 plus nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (Nab-PTX) as first-line chemotherapy for advanced gastric cancer (AGC). Previously untreated patients with metastastic gastric adenocarcinoma received S-1 in oral doses of 40 mg (BSA
Biomarker assessment of the CBCSG006 trial: A randomized phase III trial of cisplatin plus gemcitabine compared with paclitaxel plus gemcitabine as first-line therapy for patients with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer.
CBCSG006 trial reported the superior efficacy of cisplatin plus gemcitabine (GP) regimen than paclitaxel plus gemcitabine (GT) regimen as first-line treatment of metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC). This study focused on the updated survival data and the explorations of potential biomarkers for efficacy.
Response to Combination Chemotherapy With Paclitaxel/Ifosfamide/Platinum Versus Paclitaxel/Platinum for Patients With Metastatic, Recurrent, or Persistent Carcinoma of the Uterine Cervix: A Retrospective Analysis.
Paclitaxel/ifosfamide/cisplatin triplet has shown a higher response rate than paclitaxel/cisplatin doublet, but the toxicity profile hindered the use of the triplet regimen. In this study, we adjusted the dosage of the triplet regimen and introduced carboplatin in cisplatin-intolerable patients. We tested the efficacy and toxicity of the modified triplet regimen in patients with recurrent or persistent cervical cancer.
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is recommended as first-line renal replacement therapy for end-stage renal disease. Combined therapy with PD and hemodialysis (HD) is an option for patients on PD with inadequate dialysis and/or fluid overload that has rapidly gained popularity in Japan.
Purpose The GeparQuinto phase III trial demonstrated a lower pathologic complete response (pCR; pT0 ypN0) rate when lapatinib was added to standard anthracycline-taxane chemotherapy compared with trastuzumab in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) -positive breast cancer. Here, we report the long-term outcomes. Methods Patients with HER2-positive tumors (n = 615) received neoadjuvant treatment with epirubicin (E) plus cyclophosphamide (C), followed by docetaxel (T) in combination wi...
The APICE study evaluates the cost-effectiveness of nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel - Nab-P) + gemcitabine (G) vs G alone in metastatic pancreatic cancer (MPC) from the Italian National Health Service (INHS) standpoint.
Paclitaxel is largely used as a chemotherapeutic agent for the treatment of several types of cancers. However, one of the significant limiting complications of paclitaxel is painful peripheral neuropathy during its therapy. The purposes of this study were to examine (1) the effects of blocking mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) on mechanical and thermal hypersensitivity evoked by paclitaxel; and (2) the underlying mechanisms responsible for the role of mTOR in regulating paclitaxel-induced neuropathic pai...
Pancreatic cancer has poor prognosis because of its rapid progression and treatment resistance. Based on the results of the Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Clinical Trial (MPACT), a combination regimen of gemcitabine with nab-paclitaxel is currently used as standard therapy for the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer. However, because studies in Asian populations are lacking, we investigated the treatment efficacy and safety of this combination therapy in Korean population. Patients with metastat...
Epidermal growth factor receptors EGFR and ErbB2 are overexpressed in schwannomas and meningiomas. Preclinical and clinical data indicate that lapatinib, an EGFR/ErbB2 inhibitor, has antitumor activity against vestibular schwannomas in neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) patients. Its antitumor activity against meningiomas, however, is unknown.
Purpose In 2016, ASCO published a guideline to assist in clinical decision making in metastatic pancreatic cancer for initial assessment after diagnosis, first- and second-line treatment options, palliative and supportive care, and follow-up. The purpose of this update is to incorporate new evidence related to second-line therapy for patients who have experienced disease progression or intolerable toxicity during first-line therapy. Methods ASCO convened an Expert Panel to conduct a systematic review of the...
