Malignancies

-- Reduction in Platelet Counts as a Mechanistic Biomarker and Guide for

Adaptive Dose-escalation in Phase I Studies of the Bcl-2 Family

Inhibitor ABT-263

-- Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI (DCE MRI) for Assessment of Effects of

Their Correlation With Pharmacodynamic (PD) Outcome

Study Background and Results

ABT-263

Thirty patients with refractory or relapsed lymphoid malignancies have been enrolled in an ongoing Phase I study evaluating safety, pharmacokinetics and efficacy. Subjects received ABT-263 orally once daily for 14 consecutive days followed by seven days off drug in each cycle of therapy. Results showed that ABT-263 had an acceptable side-effect profile at the seven-dose (10, 20, 40, 80, 160, 225 and 315 mg) cohort levels and showed evidence of anti-tumor activity. Researchers observed 99 percent and 36 percent tumor reduction in two patients with bulky chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Another patient with bulky CLL/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) experienced a 75 percent reduction and a patient with follicular lymphom
