A Study of Pemetrexed & Carboplatin/Cisplatin or Gemcitabine& Carboplatin/Cisplatin With or Without IMC-1121B in Patients Previously Untreated With Recurrent or Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with Stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer have a better outcome when treated with IMC-1121B in combination with pemetrexed + carboplatin...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the commonly administered chemotherapeutic agents including cisplatin, carboplatin, oxaliplatin, docetaxel and gemcitabine for solid tumors in ...
Phase II Multicentre, randomized, open-label study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of avelumab with gemcitabine/carboplatin versus gemcitabine/carboplatin alone in patients with unrese...
The rational for this trial is given by the knowledge that gemcitabine acts as a potent inhibitor of DNA repair and therefore may prevent adequate repair of platin-induced DNA damage. Gemc...
The Effect of Atezolizumab in Combination With Gemcitabine/Carboplatin and Gemcitabine/Carboplatin Alone in Participants With Untreated Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma Who Are Ineligible for Cisplatin-based Therapy
This is a Phase III, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of atezolizumab (anti programmed death-ligand 1 [PD-L1] antibody) i...
Nab-paclitaxel/carboplatin (nab-PC) and gemcitabine/carboplatin (GC) are the standard first-line chemotherapy in non-small cell lung carcinoma. Up to now, there is no head to head trial to compare nab...
Iniparib administered weekly or twice-weekly in combination with gemcitabine/carboplatin in patients with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer: a phase II randomized open-label study with pharmacokinetics.
Metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a phenotypic breast cancer subgroup with a very poor prognosis, despite standard treatments. Combined twice-weekly iniparib and gemcitabine/carboplat...
This study reports the transport characteristics of the pharmaceutical compounds carboplatin and cisplatin, and their respective derivatives, in saturated sand and soil columns. Pharmaceuticals are re...
First-line pemetrexed/carboplatin or cisplatin/bevacizumab compared with paclitaxel/carboplatin/bevacizumab in patients with advanced non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer with wild-type driver genes: A real-world study in China.
The study was conducted to compare the effectiveness and safety of pemetrexed/carboplatin or cisplatin/bevacizumab (PemPBev) and paclitaxel/carboplatin/bevacizumab (PacCBev) as first-line therapy for ...
More than 50% of all patients with advanced urothelial carcinoma cannot receive highly toxic cisplatin-based chemotherapy as the first-line treatment because of their unsatisfactory performance status...
An organoplatinum compound that possesses antineoplastic activity.
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.
A healthcare facility equipped to provide all but the most specialized forms of care, surgery, and diagnostic techniques.
A condition with trapped gas or air in the PERITONEAL CAVITY, usually secondary to perforation of the internal organs such as the LUNG and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, or to recent surgery. Pneumoperitoneum may be purposely introduced to aid radiological examination.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
