Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An antineoplastic agent used to treat ovarian cancer. It works by inhibiting DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I.
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

Hamartoma Syndrome, Multiple
A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
This study will be conducted in two parts. Part 1 will determine whether administration of MK1775 in combination with topotecan and cisplatin is generally well-tolerated and causes clinica...
This is a single arm phase II study with a combination of Hycamptin® (topotecan) and erlotinib for a minimum of 2 cycles in patients (18 yrs of age and older) with recurrent ovarian cance...
To determine the effect of renal impairment and prior platinum-based chemotherapy on the safety and blood levels of topotecan administered orally
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. PURPOSE:...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It is not yet known if topotecan is more effective given by infusion...
Objective: Topotecan, a novel topoisomerase-1 inhibitor, is a drug that appears to be effective against platinum-resistant ovarian cancers. However, the molecular mechanisms by which Topotecan treatme...
Xinze(®) is a new capsule formulation of topotecan being made in China which is similar to Hycamtin(®), the currently available oral formulation approved in 2007 for the treatment of relapsed small...
PURPOSE: Most ovarian cancers recur after first-line treatment. We studied the pharmacology, tolerability, and therapeutic potential of intraperitoneal (IP) topotecan, alone and with IP cisplatin. MET...
Cisplatin-based combinations can potentially improve response rates in patients with cervical cancer, but unacceptable toxicity must be avoided. Quality of life (QoL) measures are increasingly used to...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: To undertake a systematic review of the available data for oral and intravenous topotecan in adults with relapsed small cell lung cancer (SCLC) for whom re-treatment with the fir...
