Efficacy of SU 011248 in Head And Neck Carcinoma

2014-08-27 03:41:14 | BioPortfolio


Preclinical studies as well as phase I and II trials have demonstrated that SU11248 has antitumor activity in renal cell carcinoma, breast cancer, neuroendocrine tumor and GIST. So at the light of these pre-clinical and clinical data, it seems interesting and promising to test SU011248 in these poor prognosis patients.


This is an open-label phase II, multicenter study. Eligible patients will receive SU011248 in monotherapy (37.5 mg given continuously without interruption). Tumor check-up will be performed every 6-8 weeks. Treatment will be continued until disease progression or unacceptable toxicities according to the patient or the investigator (the median for treatment in renal cell study was 8 months).

Since, head and neck tumors are easily accessible for iterative biopsy, this study will offer the opportunity to get tumor biopsies before and after SU011248. Our study will allow translational research with biopsies at crucial timing: at baseline before any treatment, , during the treatment with SU011248 (cycle 1, between week 4 and 6), for patients with stable disease or partial response, a new biopsy will be performed at the time of disease progression to try to understand the mechanisms of tumor or resistance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal dominantly inherited skin disorder characterized by recurrent eruptions of vesicles and BULLAE mainly on the neck, axillae, and groin. Mutations in the ATP2C1 gene (encoding the secretory pathway Ca2++/Mn2++ ATPase 1 (SPCA1)) cause this disease. It is clinically and histologically similar to DARIER DISEASE - both have abnormal, unstable DESMOSOMES between KERATINOCYTES and defective CALCIUM-TRANSPORTING ATPASES. It is unrelated to PEMPHIGUS VULGARIS though it closely resembles that disease.

A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.

Abnormal involuntary movements which primarily affect the extremities, trunk, or jaw that occur as a manifestation of an underlying disease process. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent episodes of dyskinesia as a primary manifestation of disease may be referred to as dyskinesia syndromes (see MOVEMENT DISORDERS). Dyskinesias are also a relatively common manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.

Rare autosomal recessive disorder of metabolism due to mutations in the prolidase gene. It is characterized by recurrent lower extremity skin ulcers, recurrent infections, and FACIES, often with mental retardation.

A disorder with chronic or recurrent colonic symptoms without a clearcut etiology. This condition is characterized by chronic or recurrent ABDOMINAL PAIN, bloating, MUCUS in FECES, and an erratic disturbance of DEFECATION.
