XL119 Versus 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) Plus Leucovorin (LV) in Subjects With Advanced Biliary Tumors

The main purpose of this study is to determine if XL119 is more effective than the combination of 5-fluorouracil (5FU) and leucovorin (LV) in prolonging the survival of subjects with advan...

Bevacizumab Plus Fluorouracil and Leucovorin in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Stage IV Colorectal Cancer That Has Progressed After Standard Chemotherapy

RATIONALE: Bevacizumab may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy such as fluorouracil and leucovorin use diffe...

Triacetyluridine, Fluorouracil, and Leucovorin in Treating Patients With Unresectable, Locally Advanced, or Metastatic Cancer of the Esophagus or Stomach

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Chemoprotective drugs such as triacetyluridine may protect normal ce...

Liposomal Irinotecan, Fluorouracil, Leucovorin Calcium, and Rucaparib Phosphate in Treating Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic, Colorectal, Gastroesophageal, or Biliary Cancer

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of liposomal irinotecan and rucaparib and when given together with fluorouracil and leucovorin calcium and to see how well they...

Gemcitabine Plus High-Dose 5-Fu/Leucovorin in the Treatment of Advanced or Metastatic Carcinoma of the Biliary Tract

This is an open-label phase II trial with weekly gemcitabine plus high-dose 5-FU/leucovorin infusion (HDFL) for patients with advanced or metastatic carcinoma of the biliary tract. The pri...

A Phase II Study of Celecoxib With Irinotecan, 5-Fluorouracil, and Leucovorin in Patients With Previously Untreated Advanced or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) overexpression is associated with increased tumor invasiveness and proliferation in C...

Emerging Nonsurgical Therapies for Locally Advanced and Metastatic Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer.

Locally advanced and metastatic nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) not amenable to surgical resection requires a different approach to therapy.

Preoperative Risk Score to Predict Occult Metastatic or Locally Advanced Disease in Patients with Resectable Perihilar Cholangiocarcinoma on Imaging.

Many patients with resectable perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) on imaging are intra-operatively diagnosed with occult metastatic or locally advanced disease precluding a curative-intent resection. T...

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 neutrophi...

Eribulin Promotes Antitumor Immune Responses in Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Several proteins involved in immune regulation and the relationship among these, the tumor microenvironment, and clinical outcomes of eribulin treatment were evaluated in advanced or metastatic breast...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Mucocellular carcinoma of the ovary, usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by areas of mucoid degeneration and the presence of signet-ring-like cells. It accounts for 30%-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries and possibly 1%-2% of all malignant ovarian tumors. The lesions may not be discovered until the primary disease is advanced, and most patients die of their disease within a year. In some cases, a primary tumor is not found. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1685)

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.

Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.

Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.

Infection of the biliary passages with CLONORCHIS SINENSIS, also called Opisthorchis sinensis. It may lead to inflammation of the biliary tract, proliferation of biliary epithelium, progressive portal fibrosis, and sometimes bile duct carcinoma. Extension to the liver may lead to fatty changes and cirrhosis. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
