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 purpose of this study is to see if getting chemotherapy with Gemcitabine and Cisplatin (Gemcitabine, 1250mg/m2, d1 d8, Cisplatin, 75mg/m2, d1-d3, 21d, 2-4 cycles) for 2-4 cycles can help shrink the tumor before undergoing surgery and improves the overall survival for high-grade upper tract urothelial carcinoma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p575; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1240)

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.
