In this study, the investigational drug, temsirolimus, will be combined with cetuximab, a biologic agent used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Cetuximab in combination with temsirol...
Safety, tolerability and efficacy of regorafenib in combination with FOLFIRINOX in patients with RAS-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer: a dose-escalation, phase I/II trial
To evaluate the emergence of RAS mutation in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, circulating free DNA will be analyzed using mass spectrometric genotyping in subjects during cetuxi...
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn about the safety of cetuximab in patients with stage IV colorectal cancer, and who may benefit from cetuximab.
This study is being performed to test if the use of high dose of cetuximab in combination with irinotecan overcomes the resistance seen with standard dose of cetuximab plus irinotecan in p...
FOLFIRINOX regimen is commonly used in colorectal and more recently pancreatic cancer. However, FOLFIRINOX induces significant and dose-limiting toxic effects leading to empirical dose reduction and s...
Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer, representing 13% of all diagnosed cancers. Cetuximab is a recombinant chimeric monoclonal IgG1 antibody and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) ...
Few clinical studies have investigated the association between neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and treatment with cetuximab-based chemotherapy in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). The NLR may ref...
We aimed to clarify the clinical practice and outcomes of first-line cetuximab-containing chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Efficacy and safety were evaluated in each group c...
Based on a small retrospective study, rechallenge with cetuximab-based therapy for patients with KRAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who were previously treated with the same anti-epide...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
