The purpose of this study if to investigate the effect of lonafarnib (SCH66336) in combination with Gleevec in the treatment of CML.
Existing pre-clinical and clinical data suggest that SCH66336, a farnesyl transferase inhibitor,exhibits significant activity against CML cells, and in fact may have synergistic activity in combination with imatinib mesylate. Thus, the objectives to the study are (1) to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose limiting toxicities (DLT) of lonafarnib (SCH66336), a farnesyl transferase inhibitor, in combination with imatinib mesylate (Gleevec) in patients with chronic phase, accelerated phase, and blast crisis CML; (2) to assess the pharmacokinetics of the combination of lonafarnib and Gleevec in these patients; and (3) to assess in a preliminary way the biologic activity of the combination of lonafarnib and Gleevec in these patients.

RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for their growth. It is not yet known which dose of imatinib mesylate is more effect...
Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by the Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome generated by the reciprocal translocation t(9,22)(q34;q11). The natural progressio...
Drug resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) is currently a clinical problem of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Bcr-Abl protein depletion is considered as a way to overcome drug resistance...
To study the effects of puerarin on the viability, apoptosis and autophagy of K562 cells of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and to provide a basis for the study on antitumor mechanism of puerarin.
BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are selective therapies for the patients with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). Imatinib and ponatinib have remarkable long-term efficacy on a major molecular r...
The introduction of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) has transformed chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) into a chronic disease with long-term survival exceeding 85%. However, resistance of CML stem cells ...
A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.
An aberrant form of human CHROMOSOME 22 characterized by translocation of the distal end of chromosome 9 from 9q34, to the long arm of chromosome 22 at 22q11. It is present in the bone marrow cells of 80 to 90 per cent of patients with chronic myelocytic leukemia (LEUKEMIA, MYELOGENOUS, CHRONIC, BCR-ABL POSITIVE).
Retrovirus-associated DNA sequences (abl) originally isolated from the Abelson murine leukemia virus (Ab-MuLV). The proto-oncogene abl (c-abl) codes for a protein that is a member of the tyrosine kinase family. The human c-abl gene is located at 9q34.1 on the long arm of chromosome 9. It is activated by translocation to bcr on chromosome 22 in chronic myelogenous leukemia.
A pyrimidine and thiazole derived ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT and PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR of BCR-ABL KINASE. It is used in the treatment of patients with CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA who are resistant or intolerant to IMATINIB.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
