2014-08-27 03:19:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This Phase 1, single-site, dose-escalation study is being conducted to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of RAD001 as part of a specified combination regimen.

Description

This Phase 1, single-site, dose-escalation study is being conducted to determine the MTD of RAD001 as part of a specified combination regimen. The combination regimen will be standard field whole pelvic RT in combination with cisplatin at 40mg/m2 weekly with RAD001 at dose escalation daily starting at 5 mg qod, then 5 mg qd, then 10 mg qd during the period of whole pelvic radiation therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of an external beam of PROTONS as radiotherapy.

An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.

Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.
