This study is for people with colorectal cancer, who have tumors that cannot be completely removed by surgery. Blood clots are a problem in patients with cancer. Blood clots are also a problem in patients receiving cancer drugs. Studies have shown that up to 17% of patients receiving cancer drugs experienced blood-clotting problems. One purpose of this study is to find if the drug combination of irinotecan, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), bevacizumab and leucovorin (LV) affect blood-clotting factors. A second purpose of this study is to find out what effects the drug dalteparin has on clotting factors in the blood in patients receiving the drug combination of irinotecan, 5-FU, bevacizumab and LV. It is hoped that adding dalteparin to chemotherapy may benefit patients with colorectal cancer by preventing blood clots

The FIRE-3 trial is a multicenter randomized phase III trial investigating 5-FU, folinic acid and irinotecan (FOLFIRI) plus cetuximab versus FOLFIRI plus bevacizumab in first line treatmen...
To see if Disease Free Survival (DFS) is improved when complete surgical resection of liver metastases (R0) is followed by chemotherapy with CPT-11 and 5-FU/FA as FOLFIRI regimen, compared...
Investigating the efficacy of maintenance and reinduction treatment or no treatment and watchful waiting in subjects with inoperable or irresectable and non-progressive metastatic colorect...
STRATEGIC-1 is a study designed to determine the best sequence of therapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.
The FIRE-4 study aims to define a treatment concept for patients with RAS wild-type tumours, optimised with regard to overall survival. The first-line treatment will be conducted with FOLF...
The XELAVIRI trial investigated the optimal treatment strategy for patients with untreated metastatic colorectal cancer. We tested the noninferiority of initial treatment with a fluoropyrimidine plus ...
Regorafenib, a multikinase inhibitor that inhibits angiogenesis, growth, and proliferation, prolongs survival as monotherapy in patients with refractory colorectal cancer. This international, double-b...
Although irinotecan is an important anticancer drug for treating colorectal cancer, its dose-dependent side effects limited its clinical application. Thus, it's important to develop low-toxic candidat...
Irinotecan (CPT-11) in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5FU) is widely used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. We assessed potential clinical variables that may predict toxicity and more specifica...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
The active metabolite of FOLIC ACID. Leucovorin is used principally as its calcium salt as an antidote to folic acid antagonists which block the conversion of folic acid to folinic acid.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
