Myxofibrosarcoma (MFS) is the most common sarcomas in elderly patients and is either chemo-resistant or recurs with metastasis after chemotherapy. This recalcitrant cancer in need of improved treatment. We have established a patient-derived orthotopic xenograft (PDOX) of MFS. The MFS PDOX model was established in the biceps femoris of nude mice and randomized into 7 groups of 7 mice each: control; doxorubicin (DOX); pazopanib (PAZ); temozolomide (TEM); Irinotecan (IRN); IRN combined with TEM; IRN combined with cisplatinum (CDDP) and Salmonella typhimurium A1-R (S. typhimurium A1-R). Treatment was evaluated by relative tumor volume and relative body weight. The MFS PDOX models were DOX, PAZ, and TEM resistant. IRN combined with TEM and IRN combined with CDDP were most effective on the MFS PDOX. S. typhimurium A1-R arrested the MFS PDOX tumor. There was no significant body weight loss in any group. The present study suggests that the combination of IRN with either TEM or CDDP, and S. typhimurium have clinical potential for MFS.

Evaluate the toxicity and efficacy of adjuvant temozolomide (TMZ) and irinotecan (CPT-11) for 12 months following concurrent chemo-radiation in newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM).
Although irinotecan is an important anticancer drug for treating colorectal cancer, its dose-dependent side effects limited its clinical application. Thus, it's important to develop low-toxic candidat...
A novel PEG-cRGD-conjugated irinotecan derivative BGC0222 was designed and synthesized as antitumor agent. Antitumor activity screening assay indicated that BGC0222 exhibited better in vitro antiprol...
Because of the great interest for research on the potential use of cannabis preparations as co-medication for alleviation of toxic effects in cancer management, we investigated the influence of Δ-tet...
Cholinergic syndrome is an acute adverse event frequently observed in patients administered irinotecan, and can sometimes negatively affect their quality of life. In some manifestations of the syndrom...
Objective: To determine activity of combo of Irinotecan + Temozolomide To further characterize any toxicity associated w combo of Irinotecan + Temozolomide
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan and temozolomide, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Temozolomide may help irin...
New treatments are greatly needed for patients with recurrent glioblastoma. Metronomic temozolomide is a standard treatment option but has, at best, modest activity. The nanoliposomal irin...
Primary objective: To use overall survival to assess the efficacy of the combination of radiation therapy, temozolomide and Avastin followed by Avastin, temozolomide, and irinotecan in th...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, vincristine, and irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stoppi...

A serotype of SALMONELLA ENTERICA which is an agent of PARATYPHOID FEVER in humans.
A serotype of SALMONELLA ENTERICA that causes mild PARATYPHOID FEVER in humans.
A serotype of Salmonella enterica which is an etiologic agent of gastroenteritis in man and other animals.
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism ...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
