In this study, BYL719 will be administered to adult patients with advanced solid tumors whose disease has progressed despite standard therapy or for whom no standard therapy exists. The t...
This study is a single arm, pilot study of sirolimus in patient with Phosphatidylinositide-3-kinase (PIK3CA) mutation, PIK3CA amplification , PIK3CA-AKT pathway aberration Refractory solid...
SAFIR PI3K is an open-label multicenter phase II randomized trial, comparing alpelisib plus fulvestrant to maintenance chemotherapy in patient PIK3CA mutated with HR+/Her2- metastatic brea...
The main purpose of this study is to see primarily if BYL719 is safe to be given to patients in combination with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel. Gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel is an FDA-a...
PI3K signaling is a hallmark of many cancers. Subsets of cancers become dependent on PI3K pathway signaling as a result of mutations of the PIK3CA gene itself or of regulators of PI3K (e.g...
The 8th edition of American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) advocates a three-tier grading system for appendiceal mucinous tumors. The mutational profile for each tumor grade and the impact of TP53 m...
CDH1 and PIK3CA are the two most frequently mutated genes in invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) of the breast. Transcription profiling has identified molecular subtypes for ILC, one of which, immune-rel...
MINT1526A is a monoclonal antibody that blocks the interaction of integrin alpha 5 beta 1 (α5β1) with its extracellular matrix ligands. This phase I study evaluated the safety and pharmacokinetics o...
BRAF inhibitors are effective against selected BRAF -mutated tumors. Preclinical data suggest that BRAF inhibition in conjunction with chemotherapy has increased therapeutic activity.
Breast cancer, one of the most frequently occurring cancers worldwide, is the leading cause of cancer-related death among women. AKT1, PIK3CA, PTEN and TP53 mutations were common observed in breast ca...
An alkylating agent of value against both hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.
An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.
A smooth, solid or cystic fibroepithelial (FIBROEPITHELIAL NEOPLASMS) tumor, usually found in the OVARIES but can also be found in the adnexal region and the KIDNEYS. It consists of a fibrous stroma with nests of epithelial cells that sometimes resemble the transitional cells lining the urinary bladder. Brenner tumors generally are benign and asymptomatic. Malignant Brenner tumors have been reported.
A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
