This study plans to learn more about an investigational drug called OSI-906. OSI-906 is being looked at to see if it could be a treatment for advanced cancer. "The FDA is the U.S. government agency that reviews the results of research of drugs and decides if it can be sold in the U.S. OSI-906 has been given to over 70 people with cancer.
This study plans to learn more about an investigational drug called OSI-906. OSI-906 is being looked at to see if it could be a treatment for advanced cancer.
Subjects will also receive a drug called irinotecan (also called Camptosar®). This drug is FDA approved for the treatment of metastatic colon cancer and some other types of cancer. The study drug and irinotecan have never been tested together in humans. It is unknown if the combination will be safe and/or effective in the treatment of human cancers.
The purpose of this study is to find the answers to the following research questions:
- What is the highest dose of the study drug that can be given to subjects in combination with irinotecan without causing side effects that are too severe?
- How is the combination of the study drug and irinotecan handled in the blood of subjects with advanced cancer? Does either the study drug or irinotecan have an effect on how the other works?
- What are the most common side effects of the study drug and irinotecan when given together to subjects with advanced cancer?
- Is the combination of the study drug and irinotecan effective in stopping the growth or shrinking the size of your tumor?

The purpose of this study is to determine whether overall survival is prolonged in subjects with metastatic, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-positive colorectal cancer treated with...
Irinotecan and raltitrexed are active against advanced colorectal cancer (ACC), act through different mechanisms, and have only partially overlapping toxicity profiles. The purpose of this...
This study is designed to compare the efficacy and safety of FOLFIRI regimen with irinotecan monodrug in the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer patients in the second-line setting.
This is a non-randomized study in patients who have received prior 5-FU therapy for colorectal cancer. The objective of this trial is to establish a maximum tolerated dose of ALIMTA and ir...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of CS-1008 in combination with irinotecan compared to irinotecan alone on Progression-Free Survival (PFS) in subjects with metastatic o...
Irinotecan (CPT-11) in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5FU) is widely used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. We assessed potential clinical variables that may predict toxicity and more specifica...
Non-randomized studies showed that temozolomide (TMZ) achieves an average 10% response rate in heavily pretreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients with promoter methylation of the DNA repa...
Aflibercept combined with FOLFIRI (folinic acid, 5-fluorouracil, irinotecan) as second-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) significantly improved survival compared with FOLFIRI alone...
A diet rich in fiber is associated with a low risk of developing colorectal cancer. Dietary fiber fermentation by intestinal microflora results in the production of butyrate, which has been reported a...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) overexpression is associated with increased tumor invasiveness and proliferation in C...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.

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...
