A Phase II Study of Pertuzumab and Erlotinib for Refractory Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

2014-07-23 21:09:28 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A phase II study combining pertuzumab with erlotinib for patients with gemcitabine refractory pancreatic adenocarcinoma

Description

A single-institution, single-arm phase II study investigating pertuzumab and erlotinib as a palliative regimen in the treatment of locally-advanced or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma. To qualify for the trial, patients will require prior treatment with and disease progression through gemcitabine. Pertuzumab infusion will be administered every 21 days, while erlotinib tablets will be taken daily. Patients will receive CT scans at baseline and prior to every 3rd cycle.

Erlotinib in Treating Patients With Pancreatic Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving erlotinib before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the am...

A Phase II Study of Gemcitabine and Erlotinib As Adjuvant Therapy In Patients With Resected Pancreatic Cancer

Study Hypothesis: To estimate time to recurrence in pancreatic cancer patients treated with adjuvant erlotinib and gemcitabine. Combination therapy will be given for 4 months followed by s...

Monitoring of erlotinib in pancreatic cancer patients during long-time administration and comparison to a physiologically based pharmacokinetic model.

In this study, a therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of erlotinib in pancreatic cancer patients was performed over 50 weeks to reveal possible alterations in erlotinib plasma concentrations. Additionall...

Ginsenoside Rg3 enhances the anti-proliferative activity of erlotinib in pancreatic cancer cell lines by downregulation of EGFR/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.

Erlotinib has shown activity in the management of pancreatic cancer. However, the benefit of EGFR blockade is limited due to EGFR independent PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. Studies have reported that Gin...

Combination of gemcitabine and erlotinib inhibits recurrent pancreatic cancer growth in mice via the JAK-STAT pathway.

Compared to single gemcitabine treatment, the combination of gemcitabine and erlotinib has shown effective response in patients with locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic cancer. However, the comb...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.

Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).

Star-shaped, myofibroblast-like cells located in the periacinar, perivascular, and periductal regions of the EXOCRINE PANCREAS. They play a key role in the pathobiology of FIBROSIS; PANCREATITIS; and PANCREATIC CANCER.

A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.

Extracts prepared from pancreatic tissue that may contain the pancreatic enzymes or other specific uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities. PANCREATIN is a specific extract containing digestive enzymes and used to treat pancreatic insufficiency.
