The purpose of this study is to find out the correlation between uridine diphosphate glucuronosyl transferase 1A1(UGT1A1) gene polymorphisms and the side effect and efficacy of irinotecan in patients with small cell lung cancer.
In multiple studies of metastatic colorectal cancer,uridine diphosphate glucuronosyl transferase 1A1(UGT1A1) gene polymorphisms and its correlation with irinotecan-associated side effects have been confirmed.Data from several studies indicated an improved clinical outcome of patients who had received an irinotecan-based regimen.In order to find out the correlation between UGT1A1 gene polymorphisms and the side effect and efficacy of irinotecan in patients with small cell lung cancer,we designed this study.

A multicenter randomized phase II study evaluating the activity and tolerability of three different combinations of docetaxel (taxotere) and irinotecan (campto) as second line therapy for ...
To compare the effects of irinotecan hydrochloride with cisplatin to the "standard" regimen etoposide plus cisplatin on overall survival, in chemotherapy-naive patients with newly diagnose...
This randomized phase II study compare survival outcomes and toxicity of two chemotherapy regimens (irinotecan plus lobaplatin or irinotecan) for the second-line treatment of recurrent sma...
This is a 2-part, multicenter, open-label, randomized study of dinutuximab and irinotecan versus irinotecan alone in subjects with relapsed or refractory small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Par...
The main purpose of the study is to determine the activity of the weekly combination of docetaxel (Taxotere) and irinotecan in terms of response rate in subjects with advanced, previously ...
Chemotherapy with irinotecan plus cisplatin has shown promise in chemo-naïve small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients. However, irinotecan treatment for relapsed or refractory SCLC has not been adequat...
Lung cancer is a multifactorial malignancy for which some risk factors, such as chronic lung diseases, their interactions with smoking, and how they differ by race and sex, are not fully understood. W...
Primary lung adenocarcinoma is extremely rare in the pediatric age group. We report an 18-year-old man with non-small cell lung carcinoma stage IV with brain and bone metastatic. Lung biopsy showed ex...
Lung cancer is highly prevalent and has an especially poor prognosis. Thus, new diagnostic and therapeutic targets are necessary. Two potential targets are somatostatin receptors (SST), which are over...
Lung cancer is classified as a single entity comprised of multiple histological subtypes. But how similar are these subtypes on a genetic level? This paper aims to address this question through a conc...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
An anaplastic, highly malignant, and usually bronchogenic carcinoma composed of small ovoid cells with scanty neoplasm. It is characterized by a dominant, deeply basophilic nucleus, and absent or indistinct nucleoli. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1286-7)
A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.
