To test whether a thymidine analog zidovudine (=AZT), is able to modify the radiosensitizing effects of (E)-2′-Deoxy-(fluoromethylene)cytidine (FMdC). A human colon cancer cell line Widr was exposed for 48 hours prior to irradiation to FMdC. Zidovudine was added at various concentrations...
We test the hypothesis that a pulse of the anti-cancer agent doxorubicin renders cells more sensitive to ionizing radiation in a strongly time-specific, dose-specific manner. We have treated cultured cells from a human tumor line, HepG2, with graded doses of two agents: doxorubicin (Dox) and...
Cetuximab (Erbitux®) in combination with irinotecan is the most promising combination in heavily pretreated patients with advanced colorectal cancer. Efficacy of this combination was confirmed in the pivotal BOND I study. The aim of the present study was to evaluate efficacy and toxicity of a...
Bisphosphonates and chemotherapy have increasingly gained favour in the treatment of metastatic hormone resistant prostate cancer. We investigated whether zoledronic acid, at a concentration found at the bone, would enhance the anti-tumour activity of docetaxel in the hormone resistant prostate...
Cancer of unknown primary site (CUP) is not a rare tumour. It accounts as the seventh to eighth most frequently diagnosed cancer in a general medical oncology service. Since CUP is not a homogeneous disease and it consists of different favourable and unfavourable sub-sets, treatment of each...
Skeletal-related events resulting from bone metastases or osteoporosis can significantly contribute to morbidity and mortality in cancer patients. Expert opinion on the effectiveness of bisphosphonates in this setting is evolving. Here we review current evidence on the risks and benefits of...
The aim of this study was to determine the clinical impact of whole body positron emission tomography (FDG PET) to detect clinically silent metastases in the follow-up of patients with high risk melanoma. FDG PET was performed to 30 asymptomatic melanoma patients (AJCC stage IIB–IIIC) 7–24...
Vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) is involved in lymphatic metastatic spread. Metastatic site is a prognostic factor in melanoma. We assessed whether serum levels of VEGF-C are associated with metastatic sites or prognosis in patients treated for stage IV melanoma. The study included...
