|Comparison of Fulvestrant (FASLODEX™) 250 mg and 500 mg in Postmenopausal Women With Oestrogen Receptor Positive Advanced Breast Cancer Progressing or Relapsing After Previous Endocrine Therapy.
|Active, not recruiting
|The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a new dose of 500 mg Fulvestrant with the standard dose of 250 mg in postmenopausal women with oestrogen receptor positive advanced breast cancer who have failed on a previous endocrine treatment
|Phase II Research Study of Arsenic Trioxide (Trisenox) in Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
|Oncology Specialties, Alabama
|In this phase II study besides evaluating for safety, the primary efficacy parameter is to evaluate the incidence of patients who have had a response to Trisenox by evidence of increased blood counts (red, white, or platelets) and/or by decrease or transfusion dependency. The secondary efficacy parameter is the assessment of the tolerability of the new dosing schedule. Arsenic trioxide will be administered intravenously over 1 to 2 hours with a loading dose of 0.30mg/kg for days 1-5 of the first week and then twice weekly for 27 weeks for a total of 28 weeks.
|Safety and Efficacy of Multiple Doses of Intranasal Ketorolac in Postoperative Pain Following Major Abdominal Surgery
|Ketorolac has been marketed for several years in other forms (tablet and injectable) for the short-term relief of pain. This study will test whether a new dosage form (nasal spray) containing ketorolac is effective at relieving the pain of major abdominal surgery, and will also assess product safety. Previous studies with the nasal spray have suggested that it is similar to the previously approved injectable form in effectiveness for pain relief and in its safety profile. Patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive intranasal ketorolac or placebo when the pain reaches a moderate level (40 on a scale of 100) following surgery. After the first dose, subjects will receive study drug every 6 hours for 48 hours, and then as needed (up to 4 times a day) for a total of 5 days. If pain is not adequately relieved by the study drug, subjects will be given morphine sulfate or other standard analgesics. Follow-up safety evaluations will occur about 1 and 2 weeks after the start of dosing. Subjects will be asked to answer questions about their pain relief and any possible side effects of the drug during the study, and will be given physical examinations, including nasal evaluations, before and during the clinical trial. A small amount of blood will be drawn for routine clinical laboratory testing.
|Ambisome and Management of Culture-negative Neutropenic Fever Unresponsive to Antibiotics
|Administration of a single high dose (10 mg/kg) of AmBisome® no later than 72 hours after ARNF onset followed by two 5 mg/kg doses on days 2 and 5 may provide sustained tissue levels of amphotericin B that are as mycologically effective as those provided after administering the standard daily dose of 3 mg/kg/day. The new dosing regimen is anticipated to be equally clinically effective compared with the standard AmBisome® regimen when given for the duration of neutropenic fever in patients with ARNF. In addition, the degree and incidence of nephrotoxicity are predicted to be lower with the 3 sequential dose regimen compared to daily dosing with 3 mg/kg because of the lower cumulative dosage (20 mg/kg versus 42 mg/kg, respectively), which is 1 contributing factor for the development of acute renal failure. Furthermore, the lower cumulative dose may be a cost-effective strategy for the treatment of patients with ARNF.
