Preoperative TPF Chemotherapy in a Population of Molecularly Selected Locally Advanced Resectable Oral Cavity Squamous Cell Cancer

2014-08-27 04:00:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a phase II study of preoperative chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (TPF) in locally advanced resectable oral cavity squamous cell cancer. The aim is to improve the rate of pathological complete response to induction chemotherapy in a molecular enriched population, consisting of patients with tumour harbouring a functional p53 protein and/or showing low expression of beta-tubulin II.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The oval-shaped oral cavity located at the apex of the digestive tract and consisting of two parts: the vestibule and the oral cavity proper.

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.

Uptake of substances into the body via the mucosal surfaces (MUCOUS MEMBRANE) of the oral cavity.

A dental specialty concerned with pathology of the oral cavity.

An abnormal passage in the oral cavity on the gingiva.
