Clinical trials using targeted toxin therapy have targeted interleukin-2 receptors in hemato- logic malignancies146 and interleukin-13 receptors in squamous cell carcinomas cheap mobic 15mg.

By contrast, EGFR was found in only very low levels in surrounding brain — a cir- cumstance that lends it to targeted toxin treatment with minimal unwanted toxicity. It is a recombinant chimeric protein composed of TGF-α and a genetically engineered form of the pseudomonas exotoxin PE-38. Encouraging results of a Phase I clinical trial examining treatment of patients with recurrent HGGs using CED of TP-38 have recently been submitted for publication. Targeted toxins for interleukin-4 and interleukin-13 receptors showed therapeutic efficacy against HGGs. Even more importantly, a variety of scientific advances led to the development and rapid translation to clinical trials of many novel forms of cancer therapy, broadly increasing the landscape of potential therapies far beyond the traditional modes of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Although we have not yet discovered the combination of novel therapy and better understanding of underlying tumor mechanisms that will lead to an efficacious new © 2005 by CRC Press LLC treatment of HGGs, many promising new therapies are on the horizon. In this environment of rapid new discovery, it remains of utmost importance that neurosur- geons are involved in and informed of the development of these exciting new therapies that may soon allow us to better serve our sickest patients.

However, clinical trial design is a specialty field in its own right and few basic scientists, clinician investigators, and clinicians have formal training in this field, particularly in neurosurgery and orthopedics. The performance of clinical trials and © 2005 by CRC Press LLC the outcomes of those trials form the most severe bottleneck of new therapy devel- opment, particularly in surgical fields and device development, where many alter- native pathways for product introduction exist and no specific criteria are available for trial format. As noted in many chapters of this book, promising new therapies emerging from basic science studies can appear ready to apply to initial human feasibility studies (in a true translational approach). An enthusiastic investigator may promote these initial clinical studies for a variety of reasons or a sponsor (such as a corporate entity banking on a marketable product) may initiate human product development. The motivations in both cases are usually financial and the trial outcome is a key ingredient in financial success. Clearly clinical trials in such situations are best performed by independent investigators not connected to the enthusiastic investigator or cor- porate entity in an effort to decrease this bias. Only later (after market introduction) are clinical trials initiated by skeptical groups of independent investigators (often with negative outcomes). This was the case with the multiple carotid endarterectomy trials,3,4 in which the basis for an existing therapy was challenged by both neurologists (who felt the therapy was dangerous at best and lacked efficacy compared to the natural history) and vascular surgeons (who felt surgical therapy was an unassailable necessary path and unethical to withhold). The uncertainty within the medical community regarding the relative benefits of treatments was sufficient that the level of equipoise favored randomized controlled trials. Since these trials involved an existing (insurance- funded) therapy, the cost of the trials mainly involved obtaining and analyzing data. Another situation is development of a new surgical therapy, not necessarily based on a product, but an extension of an existing procedure or a new concept. In such cases, no corporate sponsor exists and no insurance reimbursement may be possible because of the experimental nature (and unknown benefits and risks) of the procedure. Eventually the NIH-funded clinical trials of embryonic allograft neural trans- plantation required a sham control (a partial burr hole) because of the enormous bias on the part of patients favoring improvement from such dramatic surgery, particularly if the patients funded most or all of the procedures. Even a sham control involves considerable ethical issues and the issue of the relative worth of partially blinding patients to treatments is still debated today. Even after FDA approval or a large controlled trial, considerable issues remain in the extrapolation of the results to clinical treatments performed by a wide range of practitioners on a variety of patients, often far beyond the initial disease indica- tions. These issues may often require further open label trials based on a community © 2005 by CRC Press LLC setting for acquiring data on uses and risks in the population at large, but often the quality of data obtained from such open label trials is poor and difficult to truly analyze. The community of surgeons has considerable interest in such trials because of political concerns related to the focus of academic centers on randomized clinical trials. However, participation by a wide group of academic and private practice surgeons is difficult, and new trial formats clearly are needed to assess how treat- ments are really used in practice.
