The investigators explored the activity of irinotecan combined with temozolomide in patients with relapsed and metastatic Ewing Sarcoma.
This is a multicenter, 1:1 randomized Phase IIb study of intradermal autologous Vigil™ cancer vaccine in patients with metastatic Ewing's sarcoma Family of Tumors (ESFT) refractory or in...
This is a biological study in patients with advanced Ewing Sarcoma who received, according, clinical practice, temozolomide and irinotecan The O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT)...
Objective: To determine activity of combo of Irinotecan + Temozolomide To further characterize any toxicity associated w combo of Irinotecan + Temozolomide
Primary objective: To use overall survival to assess the efficacy of the combination of radiation therapy, temozolomide and Avastin followed by Avastin, temozolomide, and irinotecan in th...
Non-randomized studies showed that temozolomide (TMZ) achieves an average 10% response rate in heavily pretreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients with promoter methylation of the DNA repa...
Irinotecan (CPT-11) in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5FU) is widely used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. We assessed potential clinical variables that may predict toxicity and more specifica...
Because of the great interest for research on the potential use of cannabis preparations as co-medication for alleviation of toxic effects in cancer management, we investigated the influence of Δ-tet...
Cholinergic syndrome is an acute adverse event frequently observed in patients administered irinotecan, and can sometimes negatively affect their quality of life. In some manifestations of the syndrom...
Chemotherapy with irinotecan plus cisplatin has shown promise in chemo-naïve small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients. However, irinotecan treatment for relapsed or refractory SCLC has not been adequat...
A ubiquitous hnRNP protein found in the CELL NUCLEUS and the CYTOPLASM. Translocations that result in the formation of fusion proteins containing parts of RNA-binding protein EWS may play a role in neoplastic processes such as Ewing Sarcoma (SARCOMA, EWING'S).
A trans-activator and member of the erythroblast transformation-specific family of transcriptions factors that contain a characteristic ETS MOTIF. It is required for PLATELET CELL ADHESION to the subendothelium and associates with CHIMERIC ONCOGENE PROTEINS in PROSTATE CANCER; EWING'S SARCOMA; and ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.
A group of highly cellular primitive round cell neoplasms which occur extracranially in soft tissue and bone and are derived from embryonal neural crest cells. These tumors occur primarily in children and adolescents and share a number of characteristics with Ewing's Sarcoma (SARCOMA, EWING'S). They may arise from the chest wall, skin, orbit, kidney, and other structures and tend to be locally invasive or metastasize, although relatively benign forms may occur. Characteristic histologic features include a tendency to form Homer-Wright rosettes and to stain positively with neuron-specific enolase and vimentin.

A malignant tumor of the bone which always arises in the medullary tissue, occurring more often in cylindrical bones. The tumor occurs usually before the age of 20, about twice as frequently in males as in females.
An experimental sarcoma of mice.
