This is an open label, single arm, dose escalation study of BBI608 in patients with advanced malignancies.
Assessment of safety and tolerability of ADI-PEG 20 in combination with folinic acid (leucovorin), fluorouracil and oxaliplatin (FOLFOX) in advanced GI malignancies.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of the combination of WX-UK1 and capecitabine in pa...
This is a multicenter, dose escalation, phase 1 study of MLN8237 in adult patients with advanced malignancies (excluding those with primary bone marrow involvement, such as leukemias and m...
In this study, MGCD265, a new anticancer drug under investigation, is given daily on a 7 days on / 7 days off schedule to patients with advanced malignancies to study its safety profile.
Isolated limb perfusion (ILP) is a well-established treatment for patients with advanced extremity malignancies unsuitable for limb-conserving surgery. However, little is known about the outcomes of t...
The incidence of haematological malignancies in Africa's rapidly urbanising populations is insufficiently explored. Reliable population-based cancer statistics, however, continues to be a scarce resou...
Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was shown to be prognostic in several solid malignancies. There are limited data about predictive/prognostic value of NLR during targeted therapy of patients with ...
Apatinib, a small-molecule inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2), has proven to be effective and safe for treating patients with advanced gastric cancer after second-lin...
Laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) is a minimally invasive hybrid procedure that facilitates the precise dissection of gastrointestinal malignancies. We report the use of LECS as p...
Advanced technology that is costly, requires highly skilled personnel, and is unique in its particular application. Includes innovative, specialized medical/surgical procedures as well as advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment.
The use of sophisticated methods and equipment to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes the use of specialized equipment to maintain the airway, early defibrillation and pharmacological therapy.
A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System.

A single-pass transmembrane CELL SURFACE RECEPTOR that binds ADVANCED GLYCOSYLATION END PRODUCTS to mediate cellular responses to both acute and chronic vascular inflammation in conditions such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS and DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2 . It also binds AMYLOID BETA PEPTIDES and the alarmins S100A12 and S100 CALCIUM BINDING PROTEIN BETA SUBUNIT.
