This is a Phase II study designed to test the efficacy of chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatinum (cisplatin) and 5-fluorouracil in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavit...
The primary objective is to estimate the Complete Response rate of docetaxel to the combination of cisplatin-5-fluorouracil (TCF) compared to cisplatin-5-fluorouracil (CF) in the Induction...
A two-arm Phase III trial was started in Oct. 2014. Definitive chemoradiotherapy with cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil is the standard in Western countries in esophagus cancer. But in China b...
Chemotherapy given together is a standard way to treat your cancer. One standard treatment includes a combination of docetaxel, cisplatin, and fluorouracil. However, the original combinati...
The purpose of this study is to determine the appropriate dose, that dose which is found to give maximum effect with limited toxicity, of cisplatin in combination with docetaxel and 5-fluo...
Our previous trial with a docetaxel, cisplatin, and 5-fluorouracil (DCF) regimen showed high response rates in metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus (SCCE). The observed increased toxici...
Docetaxel, oxaliplatin, 5FU, and trastuzumab as first-line therapy in patients with human epidermal receptor 2-positive advanced gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer: Preliminary results of a phase II study.
The aim of this study is to report first preliminary results of patients enrolled in a phase II study that will investigate the activity and safety of docetaxel, oxaliplatin, and 5-fluorouracil (DOF) ...
Switch maintenance therapy, using alternative agents that were not administered during induction chemotherapy, is a treatment option for advanced non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Bevac...
Based on improvement in pathologic complete response (pCR) in the NeoSphere and TRYPHAENA studies, the FDA approved neoadjuvant pertuzumab for HER2+ localized breast cancer. These studies demonstrat...
Docetaxel is one of the most effective anticancer drugs. However, the current formulation of docetaxel contains Tween 80 and ethanol as the solvent, which can cause severe side effects. Consequently, ...
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
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.
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
A motility disorder of the ESOPHAGUS in which the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER (near the CARDIA) fails to relax resulting in functional obstruction of the esophagus, and DYSPHAGIA. Achalasia is characterized by a grossly contorted and dilated esophagus (megaesophagus).
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck.
