To determine the anti-tumour activity and biological effects of AZD2171 at a dose of 45mg, primarily in GIST patients who are resistant to imatinib mesylate (current standard therapy) and also in patients with metastatic STS resistant to standard therapy.

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

Open-label, multicenter study of imatinib (400mg/die p.o.)in patients with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Patients will be treated for up to 12 months. Data regarding its best c...
The objective of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes following resumption of dosing (re-challenge) with Imatinib plus best supportive care versus placebo plus best supportive ca...
The purpose of this multicenter, single-arm, exact binomial single-stage, phase II trial is to evaluate the efficacy of Nilotinib in patients with unresectable or metastatic gastrointestin...
RATIONALE: SU011248 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. It is not yet known if SU011248 is effective in treating malignant gastrointestin...
This is a retrospective medical record abstraction to evaluate the patterns of care for Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) in the community setting. Patient demographics and character...
The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the significance of apoptosis in the Fletcher's risk classification for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs).
The role of surgical resection for patients with recurrent or metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumors is still controversial. This meta-analysis aims to investigate the clinical outcomes of surgery...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), despite the fact that it accounts for less than 5% of all sarcomas, is the most common mesenchymal tumor of the alimentary canal. Synchronous and metachronous st...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are mesenchymal tumors that express type 3 tyrosine kinase receptors and are thought to develop from the neoplastic transformation of the interstitial Cajal cel...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare malignancies but the most common mesenchymal tumors of the digestive tract. Recent advances in diagnostic imaging and an increasing incidence will conf...
Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).
All tumors in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT arising from mesenchymal cells (MESODERM) except those of smooth muscle cells (LEIOMYOMA) or Schwann cells (SCHWANNOMA).
Neoplasms derived from the primitive sex cord or gonadal stromal cells of the embryonic GONADS. They are classified by their presumed histogenesis and differentiation. From the sex cord, there are SERTOLI CELL TUMOR and GRANULOSA CELL TUMOR; from the gonadal stroma, LEYDIG CELL TUMOR and THECOMA. These tumors may be identified in either the OVARY or the TESTIS.
A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
Tumors or cancer of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, from the MOUTH to the ANAL CANAL.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
