A Phase I, Dose-escalation Study of AS703569 Given Orally to Subjects With Haematological Malignancies

2014-08-27 03:15:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
