DescriptionThe main goal of a Phase I cancer clinical trial is to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of a new drug having acceptable dose-limiting toxicity (DLT). Two main model-based designs are continual reassessment method (CRM) (OQuigley et al., 1990) and escalation with overdose control (EWOC) (Babb et al., 1998). Most of the designs are based on the binary toxic outcome. The occurrence of DLT is assessed over a predefined time window, and complete follow-up of the current patient is required to fit the model. Information is lost by categorizing time to DLT to a binary variable and might lead to a poor estimate of MTD. Trials might have to suspend accrual to obtain complete data and lead to long trial durations and complicate administrative burdens. Some methods have been proposed to incorporate the time-to-DLT using a weight function, such as TITE-CRM by Cheung and Chappell (2000) and TITE-EWOC by Mauguen et al. (2011). A better approach would be to model the time-to-DLT data ...
BACKGROUND: Dose-finding trials are essential to drug development as they establish recommended doses for later-phase testing. We aim to motivate wider use of model-based designs for dose finding, such as the continual reassessment method (CRM). METHODS: We carried out a literature review of dose-finding designs and conducted a survey to identify perceived barriers to their implementation. RESULTS: We describe the benefits of model-based designs (flexibility, superior operating characteristics, extended scope), their current uptake, and existing resources. The most prominent barriers to implementation of a model-based design were lack of suitable training, chief investigators preference for algorithm-based designs (e.g., 3+3), and limited resources for study design before funding. We use a real-world example to illustrate how these barriers can be overcome. CONCLUSIONS: There is overwhelming evidence for the benefits of CRM. Many leading pharmaceutical companies routinely implement model-based designs.

Phase I trials are a critical first step in the study of novel cancer therapeutic approaches. Their primary goals are to identify the recommended dose, schedule and pharmacologic behavior of new agents or new combinations of agents and to describe the adverse effects of treatment. In cancer therapeutics, such studies have particular challenges. Due to the nature of the effects of treatment, most such studies are conducted in patients with advanced malignancy, rather than in healthy volunteers. Furthermore, the endpoints of these trials are usually measures adverse effects rather than molecular target or anti-tumor effects. These factors render the design, conduct, analysis and ethical aspects of phase I cancer trials unique. As the only comprehensive book on this topic, this online resource for oncology trainees and specialists explains cancer drug development and includes information on Phase 0 Trials, immunotherapeutics, and updated information on the process, pitfalls, and logistics of Phase ...

The care of patients with cancer has been a multidisciplinary effort throughout the 60-year history of MD Anderson Cancer Center. In the early years, cancer care at MD Anderson involved primarily the disciplines of diagnostic imaging, pathology, and a treatment modality. The complexity of these interrelationships has increased at a seemingly exponential rate, especially in the last decade. Technological advances, introduction of new drugs, improvements in supportive care, and exciting findings in basic and translational research have placed demands on the entire medical team for constant education and coordination.. Lung cancer is a leading cause of death from cancer throughout the world. It is by far the leading cause of death in all urbanized countries, and it has rapidly risen in importance in developing countries. An intensely committed group of physicians and laboratory investigators has been gathered at MD Anderson to treat lung cancer. Their understanding of the diseases involved and ...

Robust systems designed to enable the use of engineered molecular systems in biotechnological and medical applications are of particular interest. This project will address various aspects of methods and model development for Molecular Systems Engineering to enable rational (model-based) design of molecular systems and component features such as kinetic parameters in iterations with experimental (analysis) approaches. For the rational design of synthetic molecular systems, mathematical models of different types have been developed. While a growing number of computational design tools implements such formal approaches, major challenges remain, for example, in terms of systematic model development and in the rational design of informative experiments for systems characterization. In the area of model-based analysis and design of genetic circuits, the development of computational models and design methods will enable rational design of parts and circuits. Another focus on the design of engineered ...
My first sabbatical was in England at the Chester Beatty Research Institute, (Royal Marsden Hospital) in Sutton a suburb south of London. The year was 1973. I remember this year very clearly since we were in England during the Yom Kippur war and also during the great English (Welsh) coal strike. The Royal Marsden was an institute famous for studies of leukemia, and was affiliated with the Chester Beatty Hospital in the city. I had chosen to work there because of Dr. Peter Alexander and his publications on macrophage activity and response to double stranded (ds) RNA. Macrophages are cells of the immune system that "eat" and clean up the body of foreign material and bacteria, and even destroy virus-infected cells. We had been working in my laboratory with a virus that during its replication produced large amounts of double stranded RNA, although the virus itself is single stranded. Double stranded RNA treatment of macrophages led to what were called " angry macrophages". Microscopically the cells ...

Igor Puzanov, MD, Director of the Early Phase Clinical Trials Program and Chief of Melanoma at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, led research on the immunotherapy T-VEC, or talimogene laherparepvec, presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago.. Dr. Puzanov is senior author on the study, which is the first to report the ad hoc analysis of progression-free survival (PFS) for T-VEC compared to cytokine-based immunotherapy with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, or GM-CSF, in the pivotal OPTiM randomised phase III trial (NCT identifier no. 00769704).. T-VEC is an injectable immunotherapy designed to kill melanoma cells in the skin and lymph nodes.. An oncolytic virus, it targets cancer cells without affecting normal, nonmalignant cells.. Results show that single-agent T-VEC demonstrated an improvement in progression-free survival compared to GM-CSF in the overall intent-to-treat population, in whom 12-month survival was ...
Squamous cell cancer of the head and neck and its treatment may alter physical appearance and physical ability, impacting functional status and well-being," said lead author Kevin Harrington, MD, of the Royal Marsden Hospital, London, UK. "We found on all measures used that patients taking nivolumab remained stable over 15 weeks, while those taking chemotherapy significantly worsened, and this was clinically meaningful.". Study Details. The study Dr. Harrington presented was based on 129 patients enrolled in the trial who completed quality-of-life and symptom questionnaires at baseline, 9-week, and 6-week intervals during treatment. The instruments used included the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC)-QLQ-C30, as well as a cancer-specific questionnaire EORTC-QLQ-H&N35. The goal was to assess changes from baseline in symptoms and function, compare the changes between the two treatment arms, and evaluate the time to deterioration in symptoms and health status between ...
A genetic testing programme that will look for nearly 100 cancer risk genes has been launched, in the hope that genetic tests will become routine for cancer patients across the UK.. The three-year programme will initially test those with breast and ovarian cancer in the Royal Marsden Hospital, UK. If patients are found to have mutations in genes linked to cancer predisposition, they may require more comprehensive treatment and frequent monitoring, and their relatives could also require genetic screening.. It is very important to know if a mutation in a persons genetic blueprint has caused their cancer, said Professor Nazneen Rahman, lead investigator of the programme. Such people are often at risk of getting another cancer and may choose to have more comprehensive surgery, may need different medicines, or extra monitoring.. It also improves the information available for relatives about their own cancer risks. Sometimes a relative is found to also have an increased risk of cancer and ...

The GI unit Royal Marsden Hospital NHS trust (RMHNHST) has co-ordinated and published results from a large multicentre randomised clinical trial of patients with locally advanced CRC (Saini et al. 2003). A total of 716 patients Dukes B and C CRC operated with curative intent were randomised to receive either bolus or infusional 5FU regimes. Patients treated at the RMHNHST made up the majority of the total sample cohort (n=550). Analysis of results after a median of 19.8 months follow-up showed that infused 5-FU given over 12 weeks resulted in similar survival to bolus 5-FU and FA over a six-month period (log rank p=0.764). There was, however, significantly less toxicity associated with the infusional regime ...
Recent work by Dr. Chris Lowry and colleagues at Bristol University (UK) suggests that a faulty immune system may lead to depression.. In that case, it might be possible to create a protective vaccine.. Lets start with a nicely-written article appearing in the latest (April 7, 2007) issue of The Economist; the piece follows.. Bacteria and depression Bad is good - An unexpected explanation for the rise of depression. Bacteria cause disease. The idea that they might also prevent disease is counterintuitive. Yet that is the hypothesis Chris Lowry, of Bristol University, and his colleagues are putting forward in Neuroscience. They think a particular sort of bacterium might alleviate clinical depression.. The chance observation that Dr Lowry followed up to arrive at this conclusion was made by Mary OBrien, an oncologist at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. Dr OBrien was trying out an experimental treatment for lung cancer that involved inoculating patients with Mycobacterium vaccae. This is a ...

Purpose: To evaluate safety (primary endpoint), tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic profile, and preliminary activity of the intravenous, pan-class I isoform PI3K/mTOR inhibitor PF-05212384 in patients with advanced solid tumors.. Experimental Design: Part 1 of this open-label phase I study was designed to estimate the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) in patients with nonselected solid tumors, using a modified continual reassessment method to guide dose escalation. Objectives of part 2 were MTD confirmation and assessment of preliminary activity in patients with selected tumor types and PI3K pathway dysregulation.. Results: Seventy-seven of the 78 enrolled patients received treatment. The MTD for PF-05212384, administered intravenously once weekly, was estimated to be 154 mg. The most common treatment-related adverse events (AE) were mucosal inflammation/stomatitis (58.4%), nausea (42.9%), hyperglycemia (26%), decreased appetite (24.7%), fatigue (24.7%), and vomiting (24.7%).

A mature process for the development of embedded controls and systems using Model-Based Design relies on libraries of validated models for the physical system components. These models are used throughout the design process and are readily available to the system and controls engineers for design and validation tasks. Models are created at various levels of abstraction to accommodate analysis needs at various stages of the design process. Abstract models are used early in the process for quick assessment of design tradeoffs, while higher fidelity models are used as the design progresses to account for the dynamics that affect system performance. Once acceptable system performance is achieved with desktop simulation, the models are moved to a real-time platform for final verification. Creating real-time capable plant models typically requires making assumptions and compromises to achieve acceptable performance. The end result is successful deployment of the embedded controls system with minimal ...

As progression-free survival (PFS) has become increasingly used as the primary endpoint in oncology phase 3 trials, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has generally required a complete-case blinded independent central review (BICR) of PFS to assess and reduce potential bias in the investigator or local site evaluation (LE). However, recent publications and FDA analyses have shown a high correlation between LE and BICR assessments of the PFS treatment effect, which questions whether complete-case BICR is necessary. One potential alternative is to use BICR as an audit tool to detect evaluation bias in the LE. In this paper, the performance characteristics of two audit methods proposed in the literature are evaluated on 26 prospective, randomized phase 3 registration trials in non-hematologic malignancies. The results support that a BICR audit to assess potential bias in the LE is a feasible approach. However, implementation and logistical challenges need further consideration and discussion. ...

Simulation has played an important role in reducing design time and improving the reliability of power electronics systems. Over the years power electronics system diversity and complexity has grown to include subsystems which traditionally have used different modeling and simulation strategies, making the simulation of such systems difficult. This paper presents a standard simulation methodology for such complex power electronics systems based on cosimulation. This approach allows individual subsystems to be conveniently modeled in the most natural and trusted simulation environment. A simulation example of a four-phase buck converter employing digital control is provided. The power stage is modeled in Saber, and the digital controller is modeled in Simulnk using the Xilinx System Generator Blockset. The Saber-Simulink cosimulation is used as the interface between the two engines. Xilinx System Generator is used to automatically generate synthesizable code for Xilinx FPGAs. ...

Cancer treatment evolves through oncology clinical trials. Cancer trials are multimodal and complex. Assuring high-quality data are available to answer not only study objectives but also questions not anticipated at study initiation is the role of quality assurance. The National Cancer Institute reorganized its cancer clinical trials program in 2014. The National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) was formed and within it was established a Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Therapy Quality Assurance Organization. This organization is Imaging and Radiation Oncology Core, the Imaging and Radiation Oncology Core Group, consisting of 6 quality assurance centers that provide imaging and radiation therapy quality assurance for the NCTN. Sophisticated imaging is used for cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management as well as for image-driven technologies to plan and execute radiation treatment. Integration of imaging and radiation oncology data acquisition, review, management, and archive strategies are essential

The results of a pilot study to investigate the technique are published online today in The British Journal of Radiology.. Some prostate cancers can be aggressive while others never require treatment. Men diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer therefore have the option of delaying therapy and opting instead for Active Surveillance - regular monitoring by biopsy and testing levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in the blood. However, biopsies are invasive and carry side-effects while PSA testing can be inaccurate, so scientists are looking for other ways to monitor cancer growth in these men and determine if treatment is needed.. An accurate test is particularly important as recent figures show the proportion of men who opted for Active Surveillance increased from zero to 39 per cent between 2002 and 2006, and has likely become more common since NICE made it a standard treatment option in 2008*.. Scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and The Royal Marsden Hospital used a ...
Presentations at the 4th IMPAKT Breast Cancer Conference. New findings presented at Europes leading breast cancer translational research conference this year shed new light on the many biological differences between individual breast cancers.. Focused on the biological features that make tumors more or less sensitive to important therapies, the new studies will help doctors make crucial choices about the most appropriate treatment for millions of patients.. "Despite major advances in the treatment of breast cancer many patients continue to relapse and die from the disease," noted Prof Mitch Dowsett from the Royal Marsden Hospital, UK, former IMPAKT Chair. "Studies presented at this years IMPAKT further emphasize the potential of biomarkers to identify new targets for developing therapy to disease that is resistant to our current treatments as well as the groups of patients most likely to respond to the new treatments. In this way we are progressively reducing the threat posed by a diagnosis of ...
As reported in The Lancet Oncology, Callegaro et al have developed nomograms to predict overall survival and risk of distant metastases in patients undergoing resection of soft-tissue sarcomas of the extremities.. Study Details. The study involved data from a development cohort of 1,452 consecutive patients who had surgery at the Istituto Nazionale Tumori, Milan, between January 1994 and December 2013 and 3 validation cohorts from Institut Gustave Roussy, Villejuif (420 patients between January 1996 and May 2012), Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto (1,436 patients between January 1994 and December 2013), and the Royal Marsden Hospital, London (444 patients between January 2006 and December 2013). The nomogram for overall survival was developed using a Cox multivariable model and that for distant metastases was developed using a Fine and Gray multivariable model. A backward procedure was used for variable selection in both.. Nomogram Discriminative Ability. In the development cohort, 10-year overall ...
In cases where a new drug does not have adequate safety and efficacy established for either IR or ER dosage forms, safety and efficacy trials are required for an ER product. An example of such a case is where an ER product is being developed as the first dosage form of a new drug without prior approval or study of an IR product. As noted below, PK and PK/PD approaches may alleviate the need to conduct all of the usual safety and efficacy studies (i.e., a complete clinical trial program with two clinical efficacy and safety trials) for an ER product when an IR product is already approved.. The general approaches for studying and evaluating ER products are described below:. Demonstration of Safety and Efficacy Primarily based on Clinical Trials. • In general, for drugs where the concentration-response relationships are not established or are unknown, applications for an ER product where an IR product already exists will require the demonstration of the safety and efficacy of the product in the ...
Poor absorption of bile acid is the cause of chronic diarrhea in a large proportion of cancer patients, new research shows. The study of 506 patients with diarrhea and a variety of cancer types found that 43 percent had bile acid malabsorption (BAM), suggesting an opportunity to substantially improve quality of life in patients with this complication. The study provides the basis for a more focused approach to diarrhea in cancer patients, said Frank Phillips, MD, a trainee gastroenterologist at the Royal Marsden Hospital, in London, England, who presented the study at Digestive Disease Week 2014. ...
