  • a Prior chemotherapy: each prior Pgp substrate administration was counted as a separate dose. Thus, for example, patient 8 was treated with 3 Pgp substrates on 10 successive cycles (3 × 10 = 30 doses); whereas patient 11 was treated with 3 Pgp substrates for a total of 16 cycles (3 × 16 = 48 doses).

  • b See “Patients and Methods” for calculation used to derive percentage change liver:heart 99mTc Sestamibi AUC0–3 h.

  • c Four columns on the right indicate sites of disease documented by exam or radiographic studies. Empty box = no metastatic disease at this site or organ.

  • d Results of 99mTc Sestamibi imaging are summarized as follows: INC, tumor mass visualized in baseline 99mTc-sestamibi image and tumor:heart AUC0–3 h increased after XR9576; NOT INC, tumor visualized in baseline 99mTc-sestamibi image but tumor:heart AUC0–3 h unchanged or decreased after XR9576; V, tumor visualized but not included in initial field of view, so change in AUC unknown; and NV, 99mTc-sestamibi imaging did not visualize tumor mass at baseline nor after XR9576 (in patients 7, 8, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, and 25 tumors not visualized).
