Summary of "Does sunitinib have a patient-specific dose without diminishing its antitumor effect on advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms?"

Because it is unknown whether adjusting the dose of sunitinib can benefit patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (Pan-NENs), this retrospective study examined maximum tumor shrinkage rates and prognoses in patients with and without low doses of sunitinib administration.

The programmed site-specific delivery of the angiostatin sunitinib and chemotherapeutic paclitaxel for highly efficient tumor treatment.

Malignant solid tumors are composed of tumor cells, stromal cells and the complex networks of the tumor microenvironment (TME), which is the underlying cause of the unsatisfactory outcome of conventio...

Mitochondrial oxidative stress plays a critical role in the cardiotoxicity of sunitinib: Running title: Sunitinib and oxidative stress in hearts.

Sunitinib is cardiotoxic, but the mechanisms are not entirely clear. We aimed to enlarge our knowledge about the role of mitochondria in cardiac toxicity of sunitinib in vitro and in vivo. For this re...

Voxel-based dosimetry is superior to mean-absorbed dose approach for establishing dose-effect relationship in targeted radionuclide therapy.

It is becoming evident that patient-individualized dosimetry in targeted radionuclide therapy (TRT) is a must and not a luxury in the era of precision medicine. It's often argued that patient-specific...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A specific immune response elicited by a specific dose of an immunologically active substance or cell in an organism, tissue, or cell.

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

The development and application of computational models of human pathophysiology that are individualized to patient-specific data.

The specific failure of a normally responsive individual to make an immune response to a known antigen. It results from previous contact with the antigen by an immunologically immature individual (fetus or neonate) or by an adult exposed to extreme high-dose or low-dose antigen, or by exposure to radiation, antimetabolites, antilymphocytic serum, etc.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
