Phase II Trial of Preoperative Combined Modality Therapy for Esophageal Carcinoma: Cisplatin-Irinotecan Followed by Radiation Therapy With Concurrent Cisplatin and Irinotecan.

Patients with surgically resectable T1N1M0 or T2-4N any M0 esophageal carcinoma will receive six weeks of induction chemotherapy with weekly irinotecan and cisplatin given weeks 1, 2, 4 an...

Preoperative Chemoradiotherapy With Capecitabine Plus Irinotecan in Rectal Cancer

This study is to evaluate the pathologic complete response rate to pre-operative concurrent chemoradiotherapy with capecitabine plus irinotecan in resectable rectal cancer

Sutent Following Chemotherapy, Radiation and Surgery For Resectable Esophageal Cancer

The purpose of this study is to see whether or not the combination of cisplatin, irinotecan and radiation, followed by surgery, followed by oral Sutent, is effective and safe for patients ...

Preoperative Chemoradiotherapy With Cetuximab in Rectal Cancer

This study is to estimate the pathologic complete response rate of cetuximab, irinotecan, and capecitabine concurrent with radiotherapy given preoperatively in patients with resectable rec...

Radiation Therapy, Irinotecan, and Cetuximab in Treating Patients Who Are Undergoing Surgery for Stage III or Stage IV Rectal Cancer

RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs used in chemot...

A Case of Triple Negative Spindle Cell Carcinoma of the Breast and Improved Quality of Life Following Irinotecan Chemotherapy.

We report a case of triple negative spindle cell carcinoma of the breast, responsive to irinotecan chemotherapy. A 49-year old woman who had a tumor in the chest wall with a skin ulcer visited our hos...

Feasibility of Neoadjuvant FOLFOX Therapy Without Radiotherapy for Baseline Resectable Rectal Cancer.

The combination of oxaliplatin, leucovorin and fluorouracil (FOLFOX) has been established as postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer. However, the safety and efficacy of neoadju...

Traditional and cumulative meta-analysis: Chemoradiotherapy followed by surgery versus surgery alone for resectable esophageal carcinoma.

The role of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy followed by surgery (CRTS) compared with surgery alone (SA) for resectable esophageal carcinoma has been established by several randomized controlled trials (...

Oncological strategies for locally advanced rectal cancer with synchronous liver metastases, interval strategy versus rectum first strategy: a comparison of short-term outcomes.

The goal of treatment for patients with synchronous liver metastases (SLM) from rectal cancer is to achieve a complete resection of both tumor locations. For patients with symptomatic locally advanced...

Total robotic surgery for pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with rectal cancer anterior resection: A case report and literature review.

Synchronous double malignancies, including carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater and rectal carcinoma, are generally uncommon occurrences in the gastrointestinal tract.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.

A followup operation to examine the outcome of the previous surgery and other treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

White or pink lesions on the arms, hands, face, or scalp that arise from sun-induced DNA DAMAGE to KERATINOCYTES in exposed areas. They are considered precursor lesions to superficial SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA.

A paraganglioma involving the glomus jugulare, a microscopic collection of chemoreceptor tissue in the adventitia of the bulb of the jugular vein. It may cause paralysis of the vocal cords, attacks of dizziness, blackouts, and nystagmus. It is not resectable but radiation therapy is effective. It regresses slowly, but permanent control is regularly achieved. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, pp1603-4)

A variant of well-differentiated epidermoid carcinoma that is most common in the oral cavity, but also occurs in the larynx, nasal cavity, esophagus, penis, anorectal region, vulva, vagina, uterine cervix, and skin, especially on the sole of the foot. Most intraoral cases occur in elderly male abusers of smokeless tobacco. The treatment is surgical resection. Radiotherapy is not indicated, as up to 30% treated with radiation become highly aggressive within six months. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
