Nilotinib in Advanced GIST

2014-08-27 03:26:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a phase II study of Nilotinib for patients with advanced GIST that can not be surgically removed. Patients are candidates for the study if their tumors have progressed on imatinib and sunitinib or if they were intolerant to these drugs. Patients may have received other investigational therapies as well. We are testing the benefit of nilotinib in advanced GIST looking at the length of time disease is controlled as well as the response of the disease to the drug.

Description

Nilotinib is an oral drug. The dose is 400 mg twice daily

Patients are evaluated every 8 weeks for disease response. Blood work is assessed for safety initially weekly, then every 4 weeks. Physical exams are performed initially weekly and then decreased to every 4 weeks after the firs month.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).

All tumors in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT arising from mesenchymal cells (MESODERM) except those of smooth muscle cells (LEIOMYOMA) or Schwann cells (SCHWANNOMA).

Neoplasms derived from the primitive sex cord or gonadal stromal cells of the embryonic GONADS. They are classified by their presumed histogenesis and differentiation. From the sex cord, there are SERTOLI CELL TUMOR and GRANULOSA CELL TUMOR; from the gonadal stroma, LEYDIG CELL TUMOR and THECOMA. These tumors may be identified in either the OVARY or the TESTIS.

A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

Tumors or cancer of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, from the MOUTH to the ANAL CANAL.
