RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's prostate cancer cells may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to determine the effectiv...
CTC-STOP is a multicentre prospective randomised controlled phase III trial for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer patients. This study will determine if serial CTC counts ca...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and estramustine, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Thalidomide may stop the gr...
Multiple experimental approaches are meanwhile available for progressive metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients after failure of guideline recommended therapy (i. e., chemo...
The potential oncological benefit for radical treatment in the setting of oligometastatic prostate cancer has been under investigation and is frequently discussed. We carried out a systematic review o...
In the last years, the use of Image Guided Stereotactic Radiotherapy (IG-SBRT) in patients with metastatic prostate cancer has increased. In this study, we aimed to assess the role of IG-SBRT in terms...
Metastatic pancreatic cancer is characterised by poor prognosis. High toxicity of chemotherapy limits its use in elderly patients with severe comorbidities. Meanwhile, in metastatic disease, local tre...
