Anti-PD-1 (nivolumab) or Anti-PD-1/CTLA-4 (ipilimumab) administration in the pre-operative setting and nivolumab combined with chemoradiation will be safe and feasible in patients with res...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an investigational immunotherapy nivolumab in combination with ipilimumab is more effective than standard of care chemotherapy in treating...
The study is a randomized Phase I/II trial aiming to evaluate the 6 month treatment tolerance defined as the related grade 3-4 toxicity event-free survival and clinical activity of the com...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if local consolidation treatment (LCT-- surgery and/or radiation) plus standard chemotherapy (ipilimumab and nivolumab) is more effecti...
The purpose of this study is to examine if Nivolumab alone or in combination with Ipilimumab will demonstrate a meaningful objective response rate in patients with recurrent and metastatic...
Purpose Metastatic esophagogastric cancer treatments after failure of second-line chemotherapy are limited. Nivolumab demonstrated superior overall survival (OS) versus placebo in Asian patients with ...
We hypothesized that higher cardiac doses correlates with clinically significant cardiotoxicity after standard-dose chemoradiation therapy (CRT) (∼60 Gy) for inoperable non-small cell lung cancer (N...
Treatment with nivolumab alone or nivolumab plus ipilimumab achieves intracranial responses.
Background Nivolumab plus ipilimumab produced objective responses in patients with advanced renal-cell carcinoma in a pilot study. This phase 3 trial compared nivolumab plus ipilimumab with sunitinib ...
Brain metastases are a common cause of disabling neurologic complications and death in patients with metastatic melanoma. Previous studies of nivolumab combined with ipilimumab in metastatic melanoma ...
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
An anti-CTLA-4 ANTIGEN monoclonal antibody initially indicated for the treatment of certain types of metastatic MELANOMA. Its mode of actions may include blocking of CTLA-4 mediated inhibition of CYTOTOXIC T LYMPHOCYTES, allowing for more efficient destruction of target tumor cells.
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
