The main objectives of this study are to establish a safe, tolerable and active dose of 1018 ISS administered in combination with irinotecan and cetuximab in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Other objectives also include determining tumor response, time to disease progression, and overall survival in treated patients.
This is a Phase I, open-label study of escalating dose levels of 1018 ISS in combination with irinotecan and cetuximab in patients with previously treated metastatic colorectal cancer. Approximately 15 patients will be treated. The objectives of this study are to establish a safe, tolerable, and active dose of 1018 ISS, determine tumor response, time to disease progression, and overall survival in treated patients.
The safety and tolerability of 1018 ISS will be evaluated by periodic laboratory assessments, physical examinations, and compilation of adverse events.
Once study patients have been consented, screened, and assigned to one of the dose levels of 1018 ISS, patients will receive two 4 week cycles of 1018 ISS therapy plus irinotecan every other week and cetuximab weekly. Irinotecan and cetuximab will continue thereafter until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or until the patient refuses treatment.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is useful for en bloc resection of superficial colorectal neoplasms to ensure accurate histologic diagnoses. However, colorectal ESD is associated with a high...
Colorectal cancer is among the three most frequent neoplasms in Brazil, being a public health problem.
Synthetic innate defence regulator (IDR) peptides such as IDR-1018 modulate immunity to promote key protective functions including chemotaxis, wound healing, and anti-infective activity, while suppres...
The aim of this study was to compare a new, full-spectrum endoscope (Fuse; EndoChoice, Alpharetta, GA) to standard forward-viewing colonoscopy in the detection of colorectal neoplasms.
Background Although submucosal dissection is useful for treating laterally spreading colorectal tumors, there is little information regarding the endoscopic treatment of large protruding colorectal ...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.
A form of LYNCH SYNDROME II associated with cutaneous SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS. Muir-Torre syndrome is also associated with other visceral malignant diseases include colorectal, endometrial, urological, and upper gastrointestinal neoplasms.
Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
