Toxicity, Tolerability, and Compliance of Concurrent Capecitabine or 5-Fluorouracil in Radical Management of Anal Cancer With Single-dose Mitomycin-C and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: Evaluation of a National Cohort.
Chemoradiation therapy (CRT) with mitomycin C (MMC) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is established as the standard of care for the radical treatment of patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC). The use of the oral fluoropyrimidine-derivative capecitabine is emerging as an alternative to 5-FU despite limited evidence of its tolerability and toxicity.
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin (FP) has been administered to patients with clinical stage II or III esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We aimed to confirm the clinical efficacy and outcomes of NAC with FP.
The purpose of this study was to identify adverse prognostic factors for patients with advanced esophageal cancer undergoing chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (DCF).
Patients with metastatic or recurrent esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) have a poor prognosis. For decades, the most widely used first-line chemotherapy regimen for these patients has been the combination of 5-fluorouracil + cisplatin (CF). However, prognostic factors of CF as first-line chemotherapy for ESCC have not been clarified.
The modern treatment of locoregionally advanced disease often requires a multimodality combination approach. A number of chemotherapeutic agents can be combined with radiation, but the platinum agent cisplatin, a potent radiation sensitizer, is best studied in head and neck cancer. Newer agents such as cetuximab can be used in combination with radiation therapy for those patients who cannot tolerate cisplatin. For chemotherapy-naïve patients with metastatic head and neck cancer who demonstrate a good perfo...
Over the past 20 years, PET/CT has had many technological and developmental advancements for patient care. PET/CT has evolved from solely used as a diagnosis and staging tool to now having an impact on treating cancer through a collaboration with radiation oncology. There are multiple considerations when integrating PET/CT into radiation therapy planning such as PET/CT center needs, the types of scans to offer, workflow considerations between the two centers, PET/CT center growth and demand on schedules, an...
The histoculture drug response assay (HDRA) with tumors histocultured on Gelfoamwas tested for clinical correlation for advanced gastric and colorectal cancer patients. In one study, 29 patients were treated with drugs shown to be ineffective in the HDRA, and all 29 cases showed clinical chemoresistance. In nine patients treated with drugs shown to be effective in the HDRA, six showed clinical chemoresponse and three showed arrest of disease progression. In a study of 32 patients with stage III and IV gastr...
Phase II study of neoadjuvant therapy with docetaxel, cisplatin, panitumumab, and radiation therapy followed by surgery in patients with locally advanced adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus (ACOSOG Z4051).
We conducted a multicenter retrospective analysis to evaluate the efficacy of systemic chemotherapy for unresectable combined hepatocellular and cholangiocarcinoma. Thirty-six patients with pathologically proven, unresectable combined hepatocellular and cholangiocarcinoma treated with systemic chemotherapy were enrolled. The log-rank test determined the significance of each prognostic factor. Elevated alpha-fetoprotein, carcinoembryonic antigen, and carbohydrate antigen 19-9 levels were observed in 58.3%, 1...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) limits cisplatin use. We tested whether urine cystatin C (uCyC) and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL) can preidentify patients at risk for AKI. Patients initiating cisplatin-based chemotherapy were prospectively enrolled. uNGAL/uCyC were measured pre/post-cisplatin administration and compared with serum creatinine (sCr). AKI was defined as sCr increase ≥50% or ≥0.3 mg/dL above baseline. In all, 102 patients were enrolled; 95 provided evaluable data. Twenty-fiv...
Cisplatin has been used as a chemotherapeutic agent to treat many different cancers. A well-known side effect of cisplatin is nephrotoxicity, which is the primary dose-limiting toxicity. Hydration in conjunction with appropriate diuresis can decrease the incidence of nephrotoxicity.
There are few published studies to guide the treatment of carcinoma metastatic to the neck from an unknown primary (CUP). In this regard, the objective of the current study was to share the authors' current experience treating patients with CUP using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), which principally targeted both sides of the neck, the nasopharynx, and the oropharynx.
We examined SSc patients with breast cancer to 1) identify the prevalence of radiation complications and 2) examine SSc outcomes in SSc patients who received radiation therapy (RT) as part of their cancer treatment.
Trabeculectomy is considered the standard for glaucoma surgery. Postoperative scarring is one the factors associated with surgery failure. Different antimetabolites have been used in order to reduce this risk, particularly 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin C. Although both are considered effective, it is not clear if they are different in terms of success of trabeculectomy and adverse effects.
The use of computer simulation is arguably more widespread in other industries than in medicine. However, it has filtered into mainstream use in radiation therapy via a commercial product born from collaborative research partnership based in a radiation therapy department .The benefits and potentials of simulation training is discussed in this editorial from the perspective of an experienced radiation therapy physicist.
Radiation therapy has been a cornerstone of cancer management for many decades and is an integral part of the multi-modality care of patients with brain tumors. The known serious side effects of radiation therapy on the head or central nervous system are uncommon and include radiation necrosis, microangiopathy, and progressive leukencephalopathy. In addition, there have been descriptions of radiation-induced tumors including sarcomas, gliomas, lymphomas, and carcinomas of the thyroid. Patients who have rece...
To investigate the safety and efficacy of cisplatin(CDDP)treatment after carboplatin(CBDCA)hypersensitivity reactions (CHSR)in gynecologic malignancies, we retrospectively reviewed the clinical records of 544 patients who underwent paclitaxel and CBDCA therapy(TC therapy). CHSR was observed in 18 patients. Eight patients were administered weekly paclitaxel and CDDP therapy(wTP therapy)continuously, to confirm that there was no CDDP hypersensitivity followingintravenous administration of 10 mgCDDP. At the on...
An increasing number of patients with cardiac devices require radiation therapy for treatment of a variety of cancers. This study aimed to identify the incidence and predictors of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) malfunction in a real-world population that has received radiation therapy.
The objective of the article is summarize the literature regarding on the patterns and mechanisms of the formation of early and distant radiation reactions of healthy cells due to the therapeutic irradiation of cancer patients. Particular attention is given to the modern views on the molecular mechanisms of the processes of various repair systems (DDR, BER, NER, MMR, etc.) whose ineffectiveness is associated with radiation induced instability of the genome of healthy cells and the etiology of secondary tumo...
Switch maintenance therapy, using alternative agents that were not administered during induction chemotherapy, is a treatment option for advanced non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Bevacizumab is known to increase the efficacy of other chemotherapeutic agents; however, switch maintenance therapy with docetaxel and bevacizumab has not been adequately studied. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of switch maintenance therapy with docetaxel and bevacizumab following ind...
Appendiceal cancer is a rare disease, which has proven difficult to study in prospective trials. Cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC is an established therapy for peritoneal dissemination from appendiceal cancer. The optimal chemotherapeutic agent to use in the HIPEC is not clear. Mitomycin has long been the utilized, however our previous phase I experience, and European retrospective studies suggest oxaliplatin as an alternative. Therefore, we initiated a multicenter randomized trial to compare mitomycin to o...
The Cancer and Leukemia Group B 9,343 demonstrated that postoperative radiation can be safely omitted in women ≥70 years who underwent breast-conserving therapy for clinical stage I (T1N0M0) estrogen receptor positive breast cancer treated with antihormonal therapy. Whether such results are observed in real-world population is unknown. In this hospital-based data, we report the survival outcomes of patients who received adjuvant radiation therapy versus those who did not.
Purpose: To compare the long-term survival outcomes and acute toxicity between locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients who received either weekly or 3-weekly cisplatin during concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT). Methods: Between November 2008 and August 2011, 241 biopsy-proved NPC patients receiving concurrent cisplatin with intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) were included. 90 patients treated with 4-7 weeks of 30-40 mg/m2 cisplatin weekly were matched with 90 patients who recei...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab combined with antimetabolite as an adjunctive therapy in primary trabeculectomy for glaucoma.
The signaling pathway driven by p38 and MAPKAPK2 alias MK2 is activated as part of stress responses, and these kinases represent attractive drug targets for cancer therapy. However, seemingly conflicting results were obtained when assessing the role of MK2 in chemotherapy. MK2 inhibitors were reported to either enhance or diminish the chemosensitivity of cancer cells. Here we show that this strongly depends on the particular chemotherapeutic drug. Two different MK2 inhibitors increased the proliferating fra...
