The aim of this study was to reveal the efficacy of weekly administration of paclitaxel and carboplatin for advanced ovarian cancer patients with poor performance status (PS).
Paclitaxel is currently only available as an intravenous (IV) formulation. DHP107 is a novel oral formulation of lipid ingredients and paclitaxel. DHP107 demonstrated comparable efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics to IV paclitaxel as second-line therapy in patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC). DREAM is a multicenter, open-label, prospective, randomized phase III study of patients with histologically/cytologically confirmed, unresectable/recurrent AGC after first-line therapy failure.
The prognosis of patients with recurrent and platinum-resistant ovarian cancer is quite poor. Randomized trials have shown that bevacizumab (BEV) can be effective, even in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, but only a few such cases of long-term survival with BEV have been reported. Furthermore, there is no consensus on how many cycles of BEV should be administered. Herein, we report a case of refractory mucinous ovarian cancer showing long-term survival after six cycles of weekly paclitaxel with BEV foll...
Many patients developing a loco-regional recurrence of squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (SCCHN) have a poor prognosis. Often, recurrences are unresectable, and patients require a second course of radiotherapy or chemoradiation. We present an approach of chemoradiation including mainly 30 Gy of radiotherapy (1.5 Gy twice daily) plus concurrent paclitaxel. To further improve the prognoses of these patients, we increased the radiation dose from 30 to 36 Gy.
Nanoparticle albumin-bound (nab)-paclitaxel was developed to improve paclitaxel solubility and does not need premedication to avoid infusion-related reactions associated with solvent-based (sb)-paclitaxel. We conducted a phase II trial to investigate the efficacy and safety of nab-paclitaxel plus ramucirumab combination therapy for previously treated advanced gastric cancer.
Recently, Poly-ADP-Ribose Polymerase (PARP) inhibitors are one of the most intensively studied group of antiblastic agents for the management of recurrent ovarian cancer. Among this family, Olaparib was the first to be approved by European Medicines Agency as maintenance therapy post-response to platinum-based chemotherapy for recurrent ovarian cancer in women with deleterious BRCA1/2 mutation. Following that, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Olaparib monotherapy as fourth or later line of tr...
The goals of treating recurrent platinum-resistant ovarian cancer are palliative, aimed at reducing symptoms and improving progression free survival. A prospective trial was conducted to determine the prevalence and severity of symptoms, and associated care needs.
Modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS) is predictive of survival in many advanced cancers, but has not been evaluated in recurrent ovarian cancer (ROC). The aim was to determine validity of mGPS in ROC, investigate its associations with health related quality of life (HRQL) and ECOG performance status (PS).
Interval debulking surgery (IDS) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is currently one of the preferred treatment options for advanced ovarian, fallopian tube or peritoneal cancer. This study was conducted to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of dose-dense paclitaxel plus carboplatin therapy (ddTC therapy) as NAC for these cancers.
Purpose Uterine serous carcinoma is a rare, aggressive variant of endometrial cancer. Trastuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that targets human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)/neu, a receptor overexpressed in 30% of uterine serous carcinoma. This multicenter, randomized phase II trial compared carboplatin-paclitaxel with and without trastuzumab in patients with advanced or recurrent uterine serous carcinoma who overexpress HER2/neu. Methods Eligible patients had primary stage III or IV or ...
Paclitaxel and carboplatin combination chemotherapy has remained the standard of care in the front-line therapy of advanced epithelial ovarian cancer during the last decade. Maintenance chemotherapy has not been proven to impact on overall survival. Acceptable alternatives include weekly paclitaxel plus 3-weekly carboplatin, the addition of bevacizumab to 3-weekly carboplatin and paclitaxel, and intraperitoneal chemotherapy. In particular, anti-angiogenic therapy has been identified as the most promising ta...
The histoculture drug response assay (HDRA) has been correlated clinically to a number of cancer types (please see Chaps. 7 - 11 of the present volume). The present chapter reviews the clinical trials of the HDRA for ovarian cancer. A prospective clinical trial of the HDRA for advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (AEOC) was performed at Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea. The clinical trial compared the efficacy of first-line therapy paclitaxel and carboplatinum in the HDRA and the clinical response for the pa...
Bevacizumab is the only therapeutic target approved for patients with persistent, recurrent or advanced cervical cancer from a phase III study that combined with chemotherapy; it proves a significant increase in overall survival. To retrospectively assess the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab as the first-line treatment in patients from usual clinical practice with recurrent/persistent or advanced cervical cancer.
Ovarian cancer is one of the leading gynecologic malignancies globally, the 5-year survival rate for patients with advanced stage ovarian cancer is very low. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that miR-335 was associated with the survival of patients with ovarian cancer.
Despite optimal surgery and appropriate first-line chemotherapy, ∼70%-80% of patients with epithelial ovarian cancer will develop disease relapse. The same modalities as used primarily are available for treatment of recurrent ovarian cancer (ROC). The rationale for repetitive surgery in ROC was based on a stable body of retrospective data; however, prospective data were missing. Now, preliminary data from the prospective AGO-DESKTOP III give evidence that surgery for ROC seems to be of benefit for selecte...
To compare the diagnostic performance of O-(2-F-fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine (F-FET) PET and perfusion-weighted MR imaging (PWI) for the diagnosis of progressive or recurrent glioma.
Significant Association Between Low Baseline Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio and Improved Progression-free Survival of Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer Treated With Eribulin But Not With Nab-Paclitaxel.
Although eribulin and nab-paclitaxel are chemotherapy agents widely used for locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (MBC), their predictive factors remain unknown. Because the absolute neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a significant prognostic factor for early-stage breast cancer, we investigated its usefulness in terms of the eribulin or nab-paclitaxel treatment efficacy for MBC.
To compare a cohort of patients with platinum-resistant recurrent ovarian cancer (PROC) treated with bevacizumab and gemcitabine (Bev-Gem) to that of patients treated only with gemcitabine (Gem).
Cabozantinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor with activity against VEGFR2 and MET that has demonstrated clinical activity in advanced solid tumors. This open-label, phase II trial evaluated cabozantinib in patients with recurrent or refractory glioblastoma (GBM; NCT00704288).
The aim of this study was to compare surgical results and survival outcome of advanced ovarian cancer patients who were treated with primary versus interval debulking surgery.
Objective: To investigate the expressions and clinical significances of paired box gene 2 (Pax2) and cyclin D1 protein in advanced ovarian serous carcinoma. Methods: From January 2003 to December 2013, the pathologic tissues of 202 patients with advanced ovarian serous cancer (Ⅲ-Ⅳ) who underwent initial cytoreductive surgery were collected. The expressions of Pax2 and cyclin D1 protein were detected by immunohistochemistry in tissue microarray. The relationships of their expressions with the clinicopath...
Ovarian cancer is frequently diagnosed at an advanced stage and 70% of patients experience recurrence months to years from initial diagnosis. The expression of paraneoplastic antigens can result in the occurrence of onconeural autoantibodies in ovarian cancer that may be associated with neurological disorders that are clinically manifested in patients before diagnosis of ovarian cancer. These paraneoplastic antigens can serve as excellent biomarkers not only for early detection but also for monitoring ovari...
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) remains the most lethal gynecologic malignancy. Primary cytoreductive surgery with adjuvant taxane-platinum chemotherapy is the standard treatment to fight ovarian cancer, however, their side effects are severe, and chemoresistance emerges at high rates. Therefore, EOC clinic urges for novel treatment strategies to reverse chemoresistance and to improve the survival rates. Metformin has been shown to act in synergy with certain anti-cancer agents, overcoming chemoresistance i...
Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of veliparib combined with carboplatin and gemcitabine in patients with advanced ovarian cancer and other nonhematologic malignancies.
MicroRNA-630 (miR-630) has been implicated in the development and progression of multiple cancers. The current study aimed to investigate the role of miR-630 in chemoresistant epithelial ovarian cancer. MiR-630 expression levels were detected in ovarian cancer cell line SKOV3 and paclitaxel-resistant SKOV3 (SKOV3-TR) via microarray and qRT-PCR. MiR-630 inhibitors and negative controls were transfected into SKOV3 and SKOV3-TR cells. Wound healing, invasion, chemosensitivity, and cell apoptosis assays were pe...
