The goal of this research study is to investigate for the first time the safety and tolerability of a new drug (AS703569), called an aurora kinase inhibitor, being tested to treat blood cancers in patients with different blood cancers. The research study will also assess how the body breaks down AS703569 and what changes occur in the blood after oral doses of AS703569. It will also look to see if there is any improvement in your blood cancer. The use of AS703569 in this study is experimental.

In clinical practice and research, combination of anticancer agents is often used to improve efficacy of treatment. In vitro and in vivo experiments have shown additive-synergistic anti-tu...
This is a Phase I trial. Some specific protocol information is proprietary and is not publicly available at this time. Full information will be provided to trial participants.
The aim of the study is to obtain immune reconsitutuion as well as reduction of infective episodes and disease relapse in patient with haematological malignancies who underwent SCT(and sub...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the histone deacetylase inhibitor CHR-2845 is tolerated in patients with haematological diseases and lymphoid malignancies.
MDR (multidrug resistant) gram-negative bacteria have emerged as an important cause of bloodstream infection in hospitalized patients, especially in immunocompromised hosts. It was previou...
Patients with haematological malignancies have a higher incidence of infection compared with the general population. Several factors contribute to this but specially chemotherapy drugs carry different...
Tremendous progress in treatment and outcomes has been achieved across the whole range of haematological malignancies in the past two decades. Although cure rates for aggressive malignancies have incr...
Although outcomes of critically ill patients with haematological malignancies (HMs) have been fully investigated in terms of organ failure and mortality, data are scarce on health-related quality of l...
There is conflicting information about the epidemiology of thromboembolism (TE) in paediatric oncology. Objectives were to describe the incidence and risk factors of TE in children with cancer. We inc...
In many types of solid tumours, the aberrant expression of the cell adhesion molecule N-cadherin is a hallmark of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, resulting in the acquisition of an aggressive tu...
A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System. MICROMEDEX, Inc., Englewood, Colorado (Edition expires 11/30/95))
An alkylating agent of value against both hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.
A species of gram-positive bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae. Infections have a strong association with malignancies and also with GAS GANGRENE.
A potent inhibitor of ADENOSINE DEAMINASE. The drug induces APOPTOSIS of LYMPHOCYTES, and is used in the treatment of many lymphoproliferative malignancies, particularly HAIRY CELL LEUKEMIA. It is also synergistic with some other antineoplastic agents and has immunosuppressive activity.
Transforming protein coded by myc oncogenes. The v-myc protein has been found in several replication-defective avian retrovirus isolates which induce a broad spectrum of malignancies.
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
