A Trial of RAD001/Capecitabine in Refractory Gastric Cancer

2014-08-27 03:14:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Capecitabine is an oral fluoropyrimidine that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of metastatic gastric and colorectal cancer patients. On the basis of capecitabine-based chemotherapy which is accepted as a standard regimen in gastric cancer, we will perform the phase I/II study with all-oral regimen of RAD001 with capecitabine for these refractory gastric cancer patients.

Phase I Oral mTOR Inhibitor RAD001 in Combo w/ Capecitabine for Metastatic Breast

In order to improve the survival of metastatic breast patients, it is important to investigate the use of novel therapeutic agents combined with known active agents in the treatment of bre...

Safety and Dosage Study of RAD001 (Everolimus) in Combination With Current Standard of Care to Treat Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

The purpose of this study is to determine if RAD001 (everolimus) helps improve the standard treatment of XELOX-A (bevacizumab, oxaliplatin, capecitabine) in metastatic colon cancer.

RAD001 in Combination With Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin (XELOX) in Patients With Advanced Gastric Cancer

It is expected that RAD001 works in gastric cancer by inhibiting PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway and Hif1A (hypoxia inducible factor 1, alpha subunit), a key player in angiogenesis and the growth of...

Efficacy and Safety of Everolimus (RAD001) in Patients With Advanced Gastric Cancer

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of everolimus 10mg daily in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma (inoperable, recurrent or metastatic gastric cancer) who...

Low-dose RAD001(Everolimus) Plus Cisplatin-HDFL Chemotherapy for the First-line Treatment of Advanced Gastric Cancer

Cost-effectiveness analysis of capecitabine monotherapy versus capecitabine plus oxaliplatin in elderly patients with advanced gastric cancer.

There is no single standard chemotherapy regimen for elderly patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC). A phase III trial has confirmed that both capecitabine monotherapy and capecitabine plus oxali...

Attenuation of everolimus-induced cytotoxicity by a protective autophagic pathway involving ERK activation in renal cell carcinoma cells.

The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway is a critical target for cancer treatment and the mTOR inhibitor everolimus (RAD001) has been approved for treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). How...

Discordancy and changes in the pattern of programmed death ligand 1 expression before and after platinum-based chemotherapy in metastatic gastric cancer.

Our goal was to evaluate changes in PD-L1 expression in primary tumours of metastatic gastric cancer before and after chemotherapy.

Randomised phase III trial of vinflunine plus capecitabine versus capecitabine alone in patients with advanced breast cancer previously treated with an anthracycline and resistant to taxane.

Capecitabine is an approved standard therapy for anthracycline- and taxane-pretreated locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (BC). Vinflunine has demonstrated single-agent activity in phase II s...

Clinicopathological features of 22C3 PD-L1 expression with mismatch repair, Epstein-Barr virus status, and cancer genome alterations in metastatic gastric cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

A proto-oncogene protein and member of the Wnt family of proteins. It is frequently up-regulated in human GASTRIC CANCER and is a tumor marker (TUMOR MARKERS, BIOLOGICAL) of gastric and COLORECTAL CANCER.

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

Mucocellular carcinoma of the ovary, usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by areas of mucoid degeneration and the presence of signet-ring-like cells. It accounts for 30%-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries and possibly 1%-2% of all malignant ovarian tumors. The lesions may not be discovered until the primary disease is advanced, and most patients die of their disease within a year. In some cases, a primary tumor is not found.
