The purpose of this study is to see if getting chemotherapy with Gemcitabine and Cisplatin (GC) for 2-4 cycles can help shrink the tumor before undergoing surgery and improves the overall survival for high-grade upper tract urothelial carcinoma.

The investigators evaluated the efficacy of a single early intravesical instillation of doxetaxel in the prevention of bladder recurrence after nephroureterectomy or distal ureterectomy fo...
Results of previous studies suggest that the timing of intravesical mitomycin C administration may impact bladder tumor recurrence rate following radical nephroureterectomy. This is the fi...
Gastric cancer is the third major cancer of global cancer-related death. In China, the early diagnosis rate of gastric cancer is relatively low, and most patients are with locally advanced...
Purpose: To assess the utility of PET/MR in assessing response to neoadjuvant radiation therapy in the treatment of high grade sarcomas. Participants: Adult patients with potentially cura...
This is a single-arm prospective non-randomized, non-blinded trial to assess the safety of neoadjuvant stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) before surgery in high risk prostate cance...
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy is the most-frequently employed strategy for patients with high-grade osteosarcoma. However, the contribution of neoadjuvant chem...
Localized adult high-grade soft tissue sarcomas (STS) usually require multimodality treatment including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and hyperthermia. If maximal preoperative tumor-shrinkage is...
To evaluate whether patients with persistent muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) after undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radical cystectomy have worse overall and cancer specific survival than...
Is adjuvant chemotherapy necessary for locally advanced rectal cancer patients with pathological complete response after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy and radical surgery? A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Current clinical guidelines recommended the routine use of adjuvant chemotherapy for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) patients. However, the effects of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with path...
A tumor of both low- and high-grade malignancy. The low-grade grow slowly, appear in any age group, and are readily cured by excision. The high-grade behave aggressively, widely infiltrate the salivary gland and produce lymph node and distant metastases. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas account for about 21% of the malignant tumors of the parotid gland and 10% of the sublingual gland. They are the most common malignant tumor of the parotid.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Initial drug treatment designed to bring about REMISSION INDUCTION. It is typically a short-term and high-dose drug treatment that is followed by CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY and then MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.
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...
