Oxaliplatin+Gemcitabine vs Capecitabine as Adjuvant Therapy for Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

To evaluate of adjuvant therapy using oxaliplatin and gemcitabine (GEMOX regimen) versus capecitabine alone chemotherapy in patients who underwent curative surgery for intrahepatic cholang...

Adjuvant Capecitabine vs Gemcitabine Plus Cisplatin in Resected Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

There is no proven adjuvant treatment after curative surgical resection in patients with cholangiocarcinoma, although previous meta-analysis suggested potential survival benefit of adjuvan...

Gemcitabine, Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine in Patients With Advanced Cholangiocarcinoma

In Denmark approximately 200 new cases of cholangiocarcinoma are diagnosed every year. No standard treatment exists for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma, and improved systemic tre...

Gemcitabine and Capecitabine in Treating Patients With Unresectable Locally Advanced or Metastatic Gallbladder Cancer or Cholangiocarcinoma

A randomised phase 2 trial of nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine with or without capecitabine and cisplatin in locally advanced or borderline resectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

The current trial assessed whether the addition of cisplatin and capecitabine to the nab-paclitaxel-gemcitabine backbone is feasible and active against borderline and locally advanced pancreatic adeno...

Potential role of HIF-1-responsive microRNA210/HIF3 axis on gemcitabine resistance in cholangiocarcinoma cells.

MicroRNA-210 (miR-210) is a robust target for hypoxia-inducible factor, and its overexpression has been detected in a variety of solid tumors. However, the role of miR-210 in the development, progress...

Association between the pharmacokinetics of capecitabine and the plasma dihydrouracil to uracil ratio in rat: a surrogate biomarker for dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase activity.

Capecitabine is a 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) derivative that is widely used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. The plasma ratio of dihydrouracil (UH ) to uracil (Ura) is expected to gain relevance as a...

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...

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor-D Enables Liver Myofibroblasts to Promote Tumor Lymphangiogenesis in Cholangiocarcinoma.

/Aims. In cholangiocarcinoma, early metastatic spread via lymphatic vessels often precludes curative therapies. Cholangiocarcinoma invasiveness is fostered by an extensive stromal reaction, enriched i...

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.

An anti-VEGF recombinant monoclonal antibody consisting of humanized murine antibody. It inhibits VEGF receptors and prevents the proliferation of blood vessels.

Cholangiocarcinoma arising near or at the confluence of the right and left hepatic ducts (COMMON HEPATIC DUCT). These tumors are generally small, sharply localized, and seldom metastasizing.

A malignant tumor arising from the intrahepatic bile duct epithelium. It is composed of ducts lined by cuboidal or columnar cells that do not contain bile, with abundant stroma. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1455; Stedman, 25th ed)
