Panitumumab is extensively used for RAS-WT metastatic colorectal cancer. This study assessed the efficacy and safety of panitumumab plus first-line chemotherapy [docetaxel (DOC) and cisplatin (CIS)] in treatment-naïve advanced gastric or gastro-oesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma (ADC) patients.

Preoperative therapy followed by surgery has become the clinical standard for resectable advanced esophageal cancer. Several studies showed that neoadjuvant docetaxel/cisplatin/5-fluorouracil (DCF) re...
To compare the clinical efficacy and safety of FOLFOX6 regimen and docetaxel-cisplatin-fluorouracil (DCF) regimen as neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) combined with radical gastrectomy in treating advan...
Ganetespib, a highly potent heat shock protein 90 inhibitor, blocks multiple oncogenic pathways, resulting in antitumor activity. We evaluated the combination of ganetespib and docetaxel for second-li...
Ramucirumab, a human IgG 1 antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2, has been shown to improve progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with advanced gastric ca...
Cetuximab, fluorouracil and cisplatin with or without docetaxel for patients with recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (CeFCiD): an open-label phase II randomised trial (AIO/IAG-KHT trial 1108).
The combination of cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and cetuximab (PFC) is the reference first-line treatment for recurrent/metastatic (R/M) squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). We an...
The purpose of this study is to assess efficacy and safety of docetaxel alone, docetaxel plus cisplatin, and docetaxel plus S-1 in patients with metastatic gastric cancer after failing 1st...
Up to date there is no worldwide accepted standard chemotherapy for the 1st-line treatment of advanced or metastatic gastric cancer.A combination of epirubicin, cisplatin and 5-FU (ECF) is...
Patients diagnosis with inoperable gastric cancers are treated with palliative chemotherapy. Palliative chemotherapy had proven to be better overall survivals and quality of life in unres...
This is a phase III clinical trial to compare the efficacy of docetaxel plus cisplatin versus 5-Fu plus cisplatin in the first line chemotherapy for advanced or metastatic esophageal squam...
A single-arm phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of docetaxel plus S-1 (DS) as second-line treatment in patients with AGC.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
Epithelial cells that line the basal half of the GASTRIC GLANDS. Chief cells synthesize and export an inactive enzyme PEPSINOGEN which is converted into the highly proteolytic enzyme PEPSIN in the acid environment of the STOMACH.
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.
Rounded or pyramidal cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS. They secrete HYDROCHLORIC ACID and produce gastric intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that binds VITAMIN B12.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
