Patients with gastrointestinal tract (GIT) cancer undergoing chemotherapy often experience several symptoms that constitute symptom clusters and can cause patients to suffer. Effective interventions are lacking for this kind of patients.
We analyzed the prevalence of gustatory test abnormalities in breast cancer (BC) patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Neutropenic complications remain the major dose-limiting toxicities of cancer chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to develop and internally validate a comprehensive and easily measurable scoring system for prediction of severe or febrile neutropenia in the first chemotherapy cycle of patients with solid tumors or lymphoma.
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy can increase the rate of breast-conserving surgery by downstaging disease in patients with breast cancer. The aim of this study was to determine whether patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy have equal survival after breast-conservation therapy compared with mastectomy.
Controversy exists over the optimal neoadjuvant therapy in patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer (EC). While most groups favor neoadjuvant chemoradiation (nCRT), some prefer preoperative chemotherapy (nCT) without radiation. The objective of this study was to compare outcomes in EC patients undergoing either regimen, followed by surgery.
Dose reduction in obese cancer patients has been replaced by fully weight-based dosing recommendations. No data, however, are available on the effects of dose reduction in obese stage III colon cancer patients undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy.
Cisplatin-based chemotherapy may have neurotoxic effects within the central nervous system. The aims of this study were 1) to longitudinally investigate the impact of cisplatin-based chemotherapy on whole-brain networks in testicular cancer patients undergoing treatment and 2) to explore whether possible changes are related to decline in cognitive functioning.
The clinical outcomes of conventional mono-chemotherapy of cancers are usually far from satisfactory due to some issues such as tumor heterogeneity and resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs. With the increasing knowledge of molecular signal pathways and pathological mechanisms involved in the initiation and progression of cancers, collaborative strategies have been elaborated to optimize therapeutic outcomes. This review surveys the most recent advances in combination therapy including combination chemothera...
Apatinib, a small-molecule inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2), has proven to be effective and safe for treating patients with advanced gastric cancer after second-line chemotherapy failure. As VEGFR-2 targeted therapy has made encouraging progress for the treatment of a broad range of malignancies, we explored the efficacy and safety of apatinib for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer after the failure of chemotherapy or other targeted therapy.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of postoperative treatments based on pathological response for cervical cancer patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) followed by radical surgery. Firstly, a total of 756 cervical squamous cell cancer (SCC) patients with FIGO IB2-IIB were included in this retrospective study. Then data from a prospective cohort of 393 patients was employed for further validation. Overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) were assessed. In the retros...
The risk of renal events in HBsAg-positive cancer patients receiving tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) or entecavir (ETV) antiviral prophylaxis during chemotherapy has not been evaluated. This study aimed to evaluate the renal safety of TDF and ETV during chemotherapy. Consecutive, 219, HBsAg-positive cancer patients treated with TDF (n=106) or ETV (n=113) for antiviral prophylaxis during chemotherapy with baseline serum creatinine (SCr)
Ipsilateral regional nodal status is an important independent prognostic factor for patients with breast cancer. Several decisions regarding local therapy are necessary for patients found to have pathologically involved lymph node(s). This article reviews the role of completion dissection and/or radiation therapy in patients found to have positive sentinel lymph node(s), taking into consideration use of mastectomy vs lumpectomy, tumor characteristics, tumor biology, plans for systemic therapy, and patient p...
Combining conventional chemotherapy with targeted therapy has been proposed to improve the pathologic complete response (pCR) rate in patients with inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression is an independent predictor of low overall survival in patients with IBC.
To evaluate whether patients with persistent muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) after undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radical cystectomy have worse overall and cancer specific survival than patients with similar pathology who undergo radical cystectomy alone.
Cancer at various stages and therapy is observed in about 15% of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Current guidelines for invasive and conservative treatment of ACS cannot be applied to all patients with cancer. The choice of antiplatelet and anticoagulant drugs should be individualized with clopidogrel as a key P2Y12 inhibitor in this population. Major challenges of therapy in patients with ACS and cancer include limitations for the use of the recommended antithrombotic therapy (particularly in ...
Perioperative goal-directed hemodynamic therapy (GDHT) has been advocated in high-risk patients undergoing noncardiac surgery to reduce postoperative morbidity and mortality. We hypothesized that using cardiac index (CI)-guided GDHT in the postoperative period for patients undergoing high-risk surgery for cancer treatment would reduce 30-day mortality and postoperative complications.
The use of immediate breast reconstruction and adjuvant radiation therapy is increasing in breast cancer patients. This study aimed to analyze the aesthetic outcome and changes in flap volume in patients with breast cancer undergoing radiation therapy of the surgical site after immediate autologous tissue reconstruction.
Patients with end-stage renal disease who undergo chronic renal replacement therapy (RRT) have a higher incidence of cancer. A limited number of studies addressed the risk for cancer in children exposed to RRT. The purpose of the present study was to examine whether children undergoing RRT in Israel are at increased risk for all-site and specific cancers.
Chemotherapy has been widely applied in clinics. However, the therapeutic potential of chemotherapy against cancer is seriously dissatisfactory due to the nonspecific drug distribution, multidrug resistance (MDR) and the heterogeneity of cancer. Therefore, combinational therapy based on chemotherapy mediated by nanotechnology, has been the trend in clinical research at present, which can result in a remarkably increased therapeutic efficiency with few side effects to normal tissues. Moreover, to achieve the...
To investigate the association between lean mass (LM) and fat mass (FM) with fatigue and vitality before and following exercise in patients with prostate cancer already undergoing androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).
While chemotherapy is an important and widely used therapeutic for cancer, it may facilitate cancer metastasis. Herein, we report that human lung cancer cells exerted higher invasion and metastasis after chemotherapy. In a human lung cancer xenograft model, chemotherapy promotes the cancer invasion and metastasis in HMGB1-dependent manner. Further studies identify HMGB1-containing nucleosome from chemotherapy-induced apoptotic cancer cells as an effective factor. Such nucleosome functions through TLR4 and T...
We recently reported that self-evaluation of the incidence and severity of treatment-related side effects (TSEs) using a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v4.0-based questionnaire was feasible and more informative than doctor reports in patients undergoing standard adjuvant chemotherapy for operable breast cancer. Here, we compare self- and doctor-evaluated day of onset and duration of TSEs in the same population.
Chemotherapy for breast cancer induces alopecia, representing a major source of patient distress. This study assesses whether a scalp-cooling device is effective in reducing chemotherapy-induced alopecia, and assesses adverse treatment effects.
Cancer is the second-highest cause of death worldwide. Several therapeutic approaches, such as conventional chemotherapy, antibodies and small-molecule inhibitors and nanotherapeutics, have been employed in battling cancer. Among them, nanotheranostics is an example of successful personalized medicine bearing the dual role of early diagnosis and therapy to cancer patients. In this review, we focus on various types of theranostic polymer and metal nanoparticles for their roles in cancer therapy and imaging c...
The International Duration Evaluation of Adjuvant therapy (IDEA) pooled analysis compared 3 to 6 months of adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer. The overarching goal was to reduce chemotherapy-related toxicity, mainly oxaliplatin-induced neuropathy. Patients were classified into low-risk and high-risk groups, suggesting that low-risk patients may be offered only 3 months of treatment. We aimed to evaluate the benefit of monotherapy versus doublet chemotherapy in low and high IDEA risk groups.
