Despite standard-dose adjuvant chemotherapy, the prognosis for patients with breast cancer and extensive axillary lymph node involvement at diagnosis is poor. The efficacy of a paclitaxel-containing, high-dose chemotherapy protocol in 21 high-risk breast cancer patients is assessed. After...
O 6 -methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT), one of the DNA repair enzymes, potently repairs DNA damage induced by chloroethylnitrosoureas (CENUs). Depletion of MGMT activity after treatment with MGMT inhibitors increases the sensitivity of tumor cells to CENUs. We tested the effect of O 6...
5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is considered the standard antineoplastic drug of choice for metastatic colorectal cancer. It has been suggested that 5-FU administered as bolus infusion is cytotoxic mainly through an RNA damaging effect. We investigated the effect of i.v. bolus 5-FU 500-600 mg/m 2 on the...
