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...
A 54-year-old man with a history of nasopharyngeal carcinoma was treated with TPF (docetaxel + cisplatin + 5-fluorouracil) neoadjuvant chemotherapy, presented with clinical features of acute hepatic f...
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma of the undifferentiated histologic subtype is endemic and prevalent in southeast Asia. The dramatic improvement of treatment outcomes and overall prognosis during the past few...
LBA-008Docetaxel, oxaliplatin, and fluorouracil/leucovorin (FLOT) versus epirubicin, cisplatin, and fluorouracil or capecitabine (ECF/ECX) as perioperative treatment of resectable gastric or gastro-esophageal junction adenocarcinoma: The multicenter, randomized phase 3 FLOT4 trial (German Gastric Group at AIO).
Integrated Diagnostic Model That Incorporates Epstein-Barr Virus DNA, Imaging, and Nasal Endoscopy to Stratify Primary Tumor and Lymph Nodes in a Patient with N1 Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma: Multidisciplinary Management.
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an epithelial malignancy, with a high metastatic potential. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection plays a fundamental role, even if it is not well understood. The diagno...
The long non-coding RNA nuclear paraspeckle assembly transcript 1 (NEAT1) was reported to be upregulated and be involved in oncogenic growth and drug resistance in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Howe...
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.
An antineoplastic antimetabolite that is metabolized to fluorouracil when administered by rapid injection; when administered by slow, continuous, intra-arterial infusion, it is converted to floxuridine monophosphate. It has been used to treat hepatic metastases of gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas and for palliation in malignant neoplasms of the liver and gastrointestinal tract.
