Expertise /Research Interests

 

Medical Oncology, Cancer pharmacology and drug discovery

 

Dr. Chang's research interests focus on three fields; (1) study the mechanisms of drug resistance, especially camptothecins, and the relationship between CPT-resistance and DNA repair; (2) anti-cancer drug development, focusing on topoisomerase I and II and tubulin inhibitors; (3) regulation of DNA repair enzyme, MGMT.

 

 
  Major Research Interests
 
  1. Development of anticancer drugs

  2. Study the mechanisms of anticancer drug resistance.
   
  Research projects
 
Clinical studies
  1. A phase III study of postoperative adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for patients with stage III and IVb stomach cancer. (PI)

  2. A phase II study of gemcitabine and vinorelbine in cisplatin-resistant nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients. (co-PI)

  3. A phase I study of PI-88 in advanced malignancies. (co-PI)

  4. A phase I and PK study of thalidomide in hepatocellular carcinoma. (co-PI)

  5. A phase II study of weekly CPT-11 in recurrent NPC. (PI)

  6. A phase II study of weekly oxaliplatin plus HDFL in patients with advanced gastric cancer (co-PI)

  7. A phse II study of taxol, UFT and leucovorin in patients with advanced gastric cancer. (co-PI)

  8. A phase I/II study of docetaxel, cisplatin and HDFL in patients with advanced gastric cancer. (PI)

  9. A phase III study of thalidomide in patients with poor liver function hepatocellular carcinoma. (co-PI)

  10. Phase I and PK studies of PEP02 in patients with advanced malignancies. (PI)

  11. Phase I study of PEP02 with HDFL in patients with advanced malignancies. (co-PI)

  12. Phase I and PK study of biweekly PEP02 in patients with advanced colorectal cancer (PI).

 
Basic studies
  1. Study the distribution of somatostatin receptor in human cancer tissue.

  2. Study the mechanism of CPT resistance in human nasopharyngeal cancer cells.

  3. Antitumor AHMA linked to DNA minor groove binding agents: synthesis and biological evaluation.

  4. Synthesis and structure-activity relationships of new AHMA derivatives as topoisomerase-II mediated antitumor agents.

  5. Study the indole derivatives as antitumor agents.

  6. Study the mechanims of action of BPR0Y007, a novel anticancer agent.

  7. Study the role of O6-MGMT in determining the cytotoxicty of topoisomerase I inhibitors.

  8. Transcriptional inhibition of O6MGMT gene of topoisomerase I inhibitors.

  9. Isolation the putative transporter responsible for resistance to topoisomerase I inhibitors in a vincristine-resistant cell line.

  10. Study the mechanism of action of a potential antitumor agent isolated from a herb medicine.

  11. Study the interaction of arsenic trioxide with antitumor agents.

  12. Study the interaction of new topoisomerase I inhibitor, DB67, with other antitumor agents.

  13. Study the pathway of BPR0Y007-induced apoptosis.

  14. Study on the regulation of DNA repair enzyme, MGMT, in human cancer cells.

  15. Study on the development of anti-tubulin compounds
