Capecitabine is active in metastatic breast cancer but the conventional schedule (1250 mg/m2/12 hr 2 weeks on, one week off) produces grade 2 or greater hand and foot syndrome in up to 50% of patients leading to those reductions. Some authors have tested continuous administration schedules of capecitabine, showing better tolerance and apparently similar antitumor activity. Capecitabine is a pro-drug of 5-FU and mimics an i.v. continuous infusion administration of this antimetabolite. On the other hand, there are theoretical reasons to administer S-phase specific agents in continuous, protracted rather than intermittent schedules. Our study compares the standard schedule(1250 mg/m2/12 hr 2 weeks on, one week off)with a continuous administration schule (800 mg/m2/12hr). The latter schedule administer approximately the same cumulative dose of capecitabine as the standard one. The study hypothesis is that grade 2 or greater hand and foot syndrome will be reduced from 50% (standard arm) to 20% ...
We evaluated a simple, weight-based, extended-interval dosing (EID) gentamicin protocol specifically in neonates with gestational age ≤ 33 weeks, and its impact on sub-therapeutic peaks, elevated troughs, and simplification of dosing and monitoring as compared to a weight-based, multiple daily dose (MDD) protocol. Methodology. This study evaluated all infants with GA ≤ 33 weeks receiving gentamicin 1-year before EID protocol implementation in Jan 2002, and 1-year after. The MDD protocol used 2.5mg/kg every 8, 12, 18, or 24 hrs based on weight and age groupings. The EID protocol uses 3mg/kg q24 hours if weight , 1500gm and 4mg/kg if weight ≤ 1500gm. Desired trough was ≤ 2.0 mcg/ml and peak was 5 - 12 mcg/ml. Results. Characteristics were similar for the 123 MDD and 98 EID patients reviewed. The percentage of patients with at least 1 sub-therapeutic peak was lower with EID (7% vs. 20%, p,0.001); however the percentage with at least 1 elevated trough was similar (15% vs. 19%, p=0.219). ...
Cohorts of 3 evaluable patients will initially be entered within each dose level, sequentially. In each dose level the second and third patient will enter 2 weeks after the first one. The second and third patient may be treated simultaneously, except if a DLT is reported in the first patient, in which case the second and third patient should be treated sequentially, at least one week apart.. Dose escalation will be done when all the patients included in each DL will finish the first treatment cycle. Three additional patients will be sequentially entered (separated by one week each other) if one DLT is observed in cycle 1 among the first 3 patients entered within a dose level. If a DLT is observed in a second patient at this dose level, no further dose escalation will be allowed and the dose level will be considered the MTD.. Once the RD (one level below the MTD) has been defined, additional patients (up to 12) will be treated in order to confirm the safety profile of the combination. ...
Purpose: This phase I study evaluated the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of the combination of decitabine with vorinostat.. Patients and Methods: Patients with advanced solid tumors or non-Hodgkins lymphomas were eligible. Sequential and concurrent schedules were studied.. Results: Forty-three patients were studied in 9 different dose levels (6 sequential and 3 concurrent). The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) on the sequential schedule was decitabine 10 mg/m2/day on days 1 to 5 and vorinostat 200 mg three times a day on days 6 to 12. The MTD on the concurrent schedule was decitabine 10 mg/m2/day on days 1 to 5 with vorinostat 200 mg twice a day on days 3 to 9. However, the sequential schedule of decitabine 10 mg/m2/day on days 1 to 5 and vorinostat 200 mg twice a day on days 6 to 12 was more deliverable than both MTDs with fewer delays on repeated dosing and it represents the recommended phase II (RP2D) dose of this combination. Dose-limiting toxicities during the ...
Volume 1" (2011).. rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/monographs/2011/RAND_MG1171.1.pdf. Table 4.3 (page 43) shows that in the 2001 SAR the USAF IOC was to be June 2011, and the 2009 SAR placed that date at March 2013. By May 2013 the USAF predicting an IOC by December 2016. This of course is, we are to believe, "on schedule.". Table 4.9 on page 56 shows just how badly production was slipped between the 2001 plan and 2011, causing at that time production to not end in 2027 as planned in 2001. Rather production was to extend into 2034 in the 2009 scheme. If we all play pretend that may be "on schedule." If we pretend hard enough it might actually end in 2034. Try to wish real hard, it may save Tinkerbell.. Once again the program is NOT on schedule, it is on a schedule contrived by use of an imaginary start date, one selected to fit the claim being made. Further slippages will be met, as they have in the past, by newly invented start dates. 2001? It never happened, the world was created in 2013. Or ...

Process for calculating decreasing doses of a drug a patient needs to take to be able to finally stop taking the drug algorithm. The process is based on an exponential drug taper. This is particularly useful for a drug which a patient is either physically or psychologically dependent, and for a drug where there are potentially serious side effects (for example, seizures) if the drug is rapidly discontinued. The program calculates the amount of drug and provides the clinician the opportunity to look at several different possible drug taper schedules, both numerically and graphically, and to aid the clinician in choosing the appropriate drug taper. The process can calculate a drug taper based upon actual clinical response of a patient. The process corrects for actual dosage sizes available, and calculates administration schedules for the patient and nurse.

In case clinical signs are not adequately controlled (clinical evaluation and/or diagnostic testing) it is recommended to increase the total daily dose by 0.5 mg increments every 4 to 6 weeks until stabilisation occurs and if the drug is tolerated at that dose. If signs of dose intolerance develop, treatment should be stopped for 2-3 days and reinstated at one-half of the previous dose. The total daily dose may then be titrated back up to the desired clinical effect by 0.5 mg increments every 2-4 weeks. If a dose is missed, the next scheduled dose should be administered as prescribed ...

Oral alkylating drugs, alone and in combination therapy with steroids, have been extensively evaluated in the upfront treatment of WM. The greatest experience with oral alkylator therapy has been with chlorambucil, which has been administered on both a continuous (i.e. daily dose schedule) as well as an intermittent schedule. Patients receiving chlorambucil on a continuous schedule typically receive 0.1 mg/kg per day, whilst on the intermittent schedule patients will typically receive 0.3 mg/kg for 7 days, every 6 weeks. In a prospective randomized study, Kyle et al.109 reported no significant difference in the overall response rate between these schedules, although interestingly the median response duration was greater for patients receiving intermittent versus continuously dosed chlorambucil (46 vs. 26 months). Despite the favorable median response duration in this study for use of the intermittent schedule, no difference in the median overall survival was observed. Moreover, an increased ...

We talked about liver function which is frequently and erroneously misinterpreted as transaminase levels. The two are completely different and occasionally unrelated. The livers function is to produce albumin, coagulation factors (check INR/PTT), eliminate nitrogenous waste (asterixis/encephalopathy), clear portal blood of toxins/nutrients (ascites and thrombocytopenia from portal hypertension), and produce glucose in states of starvation (hypoglycemia is a feature of advanced liver failure). Transaminase elevation can occur without impairing these functions, and these functions can be quite impaired with mild or no transaminase elevation ...

Overall, 21 pts have been treated (18/3 pts in IRP/ARP, respectively) and 71 cycles administered (median: 3 cycles, range 1-9). In IRP three DL were explored (range 200-400 mcg/m2 nemorubicin + 40-60 mg/m2 cisplatin). One DLT (thrombocytopenia) was reported at the first DL 200 mcg/m2 nemorubicin + 40 mg/m2 cisplatin. One other DLT (fatigue) occurred at the fourth DL (600 mcg/m2 nemorubicin + 60 mg/m2 cisplatin), currently under expansion. Common drug-related adverse events were transient liver transaminases increase (all pts, max grade [G] 3), neutropenia/thrombocytopenia (5 pts, G2-3), fatigue (5 pts, G1-2), nausea/vomiting (4 pts, max G3 in one case), ototoxicity (1 pts, G3). Across dose levels, confirmed partial responses were reported in 3/11 currently evaluable pts (27%), stable disease , 3 months in 5/11 pts (45.4%) and progressive disease in the remaining 3 pts. In ARP one DL has been explored (200 mcg/m2 nemorubicin + 60 mg/m2 cisplatin): no DLTs were reported; one pts has stable disease ...
Purpose:OSI-906 is a potent inhibitor of insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) and insulin receptor (IR). The purpose of this study was to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary activity of OSI-906 in patients with advanced solid tumors. Patients and Methods:This was a nonrandomized, open-label, phase I, dose-escalation study in patients with advanced solid tumors. The study also included a diabetic expansion cohort and a biomarker expansion cohort of patients with colorectal cancer. Patients were treated with OSI-906 by once- or twice-daily continuous dosing schedules. Results:Of 95 patients enrolled in the study, 86 received at least one dose of OSI-906. Dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) included QTc prolongation, grade 2 abdominal pain and nausea, hyperglycemia and elevation of aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase (all grade 3). The MTDs were established to be 400 mg once daily and 150 mg twice daily. ...

Adjuvant S-1 was started at least 3 weeks after curative surgery. The intended dose of S-1 was based on that published in the ACTS-GC trial,4 and was 40 mg/m2 twice daily for 4 weeks followed by 2 weeks of rest for each cycle. Specifically, during the treatment weeks, patients with body surface area (BSA) of ,1.25 m2 received 80 mg daily; those with BSA of 1.25 m2 to ,1.5 m2 received 100 mg daily; and those with BSA of ≥1.5 m2 received 120 mg daily. As clinically indicated, dose reductions were considered one dose level at a time; in general, one dose level reduction refers to reducing the prior daily dose by 20 mg, eg from 120 mg to 100 mg daily. As renal impairment has been associated with increased incidence of myelosuppression, dose reduction by one dose level was made in patients who had a creatinine clearance of 40-49 mL/min. A maximum of eight 6-weekly cycles were administered. The dose of S-1 was reduced in patients with significant toxicities, as assessed by the respective ...
