This study wants to determine the activity of a non chemotherapy first line biological treatment with Erlotinib/Bevacizumab or Gemcitabine-Cisplatin/Bevacizumab in patients with the diagno...
The purposes of this study are to determine: 1. If treatment with LY900003 plus gemcitabine and cisplatin can help you live longer, compared with gemcitabine and cisplatin alone. ...
This 3 arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of adding Avastin versus placebo to a standard chemotherapeutic regimen in patients with advanced or recu rrent non-squamous non-smal...
Gemcitabine and cisplatin given together is a standard treatment option for advanced lung cancer patients. The purpose of this study is to assess if the life span is longer in patients tak...
The purposes of this study are to determine: How standard gemcitabine plus cisplatin compares to fixed dose rate of gemcitabine plus cisplatin in the treatment of non-small cell lung canc...
Gemcitabine-cisplatin combination is one of the most used schedules for non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Aiming to enhance dose intensity and reduce toxicity, the original 4-week schedule was modif...
To evaluate the antitumor activity of gemcitabine (GEM), cisplatin (DDP) as well as the combination of these two agents in lung cancer cells and mice.
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of gemcitabine (GEM) at 30 min standard-dose infusion (30 min-SDI) compared with prolonged low-dose infusion (P-LDI) in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung c...
The signaling pathway driven by p38 and MAPKAPK2 alias MK2 is activated as part of stress responses, and these kinases represent attractive drug targets for cancer therapy. However, seemingly conflict...
To compare a cohort of patients with platinum-resistant recurrent ovarian cancer (PROC) treated with bevacizumab and gemcitabine (Bev-Gem) to that of patients treated only with gemcitabine (Gem).
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
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 heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A number of small lung lesions characterized by small round masses of 2- to 3-mm in diameter. They are usually detected by chest CT scans (COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY). Such nodules can be associated with metastases of malignancies inside or outside the lung, benign granulomas, or other lesions.
