PLX3397 is a selective inhibitor of Fms, Kit, and oncogenic Flt3 activity. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of orally administered PLX3397 in patients with advanced, incurable, solid tumors in which these target kinases are linked to disease pathophysiology. These tumors include, but are not limited to, acute myelogenous leukemia (Flt3), gastrointestinal stromal tumor and neurofibromatosis-1 (Kit), and glioma, breast cancer, prostate cancer, multiple myeloma, and osteosarcoma (Fms/CSF-1). The secondary objective is to measure the pharmacodynamic activity of PLX3397 via plasma and urine biomarkers of Fms activity.

The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with PLX3397 and Sirolimus will be tolerated and result in shrinking of the cancer or stopping the cancer from growing. In the phase ...
This is a Phase 3 clinical study, which aims to evaluate the effectiveness of an investigational drug PLX3397 in the treatment of tumour of pigmented villonodular synovitis or giant cell t...
The purpose of this Phase I/II study is to evaluate safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of the investigational drug PLX3397 in subjects with unresectable or metastatic KIT-m...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor PLX3397 (PLX3397) when given together with radiation therapy and antihormone therapy in...
The purpose of this study, the first clinical trial of JI-101, is to determine the maximum tolerated dose of JI-101 when given orally to patients with solid tumors. Safety, tolerability, ...
As a treatment for solid tumors, dendritic cell (DC)-based immunotherapy has not been as effective as expected. Here, we review the reasons underlying the limitations of DC-based immunotherapy for sol...
Studies have reported that Zinc finger E-box binding homeobox 1 antisense 1 (ZEB1-AS1) is overexpressed in many malignant tumors. However, the sample size in those studies was limited, so the clinicop...
In cancer immunotherapy, cytotoxic T or NK cells need to engage cancer cells to initiate the killing. However, in clinical studies and in mouse models, some solid tumors are found with no lymphocytes....
While radioimmunotherapy (RIT) for the treatment of hematological malignancies such as indolent B-cell lymphoma has proven quite successful, clinical results of RIT in solid tumors have only been mode...
Recently, several studies have reported that the long non-coding RNA cancer susceptibility 2 (CASC2) is downregulated in human solid tumors. However, as the sample size in those studies was limited, t...
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.
A group of methylazirinopyrroloindolediones obtained from certain Streptomyces strains. They are very toxic antibiotics used as ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS in some solid tumors. PORFIROMYCIN and MITOMYCIN are the most useful members of the group.
Leukemia is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal increase of immature white blood cells called "blasts". Leukemia is a broad term covering a spectrum of diseases. In turn, it is part of the even broader grou...
