The primary objective is to estimate the Complete Response rate of docetaxel to the combination of cisplatin-5-fluorouracil (TCF) compared to cisplatin-5-fluorouracil (CF) in the Induction...
To test the therapeutic ratio of accelerated radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy on locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
The objectives of this clinical study are threefold: 1. To compare the benefits in cancer control and survival obtained from adding induction-concurrent chemotherapy to radiation w...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fluorouracil and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high...
The purpose of this study is to compare the survival and toxicity of TPC (TAXOL, DDP AND CAPECITABINE ) VS PF (cisplatin and 5-Fluorouracil) as induction chemotherapy combined with concurr...
concomitant CT-RT is a standard of care in locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and a role for induction CT is not established.
Cisplatin-based concurrent chemoradiotherapy is currently considered to be the standard treatment regimen for patients with advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma, but has well known side-effects such as g...
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin (FP) has been administered to patients with clinical stage II or III esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We aimed to confirm the...
The purpose of this study was to identify adverse prognostic factors for patients with advanced esophageal cancer undergoing chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (DCF).
The purpose of this study was to characterize the clinical course of hearing loss in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and the clinical factors affecting its severity.
Tumors or cancer of the NASOPHARYNX.
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.
Congener of FLUOROURACIL with comparable antineoplastic action. It has been suggested especially for the treatment of breast neoplasms.
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.
