Study Using Fluorine-18-Labeled Fluoro-Misonidazole Positron Emission Tomography to Detect Hypoxia in Locally Advanced (T3-T4 and./or N1)Primary Rectal Cancer Patients

Hypoxia is a characteristic feature of malignant solid tumors associated with poor prognosis and resistance to chemotherapy and radiation. It has also been shown (6) that the presence of hypoxia may reduce long-term survival post surgery. Hypoxia renders tumor cells up to three times more resistant to ionizing radiation than ...


Pemetrexed Plus Tarceva as Salvage Treatment in EGFR Overexpressed Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Patients Who Were Failed After Standard Chemotherapy

Antitumor effect of pemetrexed is already proven lung cancer, pleural mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma and has been used as a standard therapeutic agent. In addition, this drug does not have severe side effects, pemetrexed is thought to be an important option for patients with poor performance status or elderly patients. Pemetrexed ...


LEAn Body Mass Normalization of OXaliplatin Based Chemotherapy

Adjuvant chemotherapy with fluoropyrimidines and Oxaliplatin is the current worldwide standard of care for stage III colorectal cancer (CRC). This regimen leads to significant cost, toxicity, and patient inconvenience. Oxaliplatin induces two distinct forms of neuropathy: a common acute syndrome that is transient (dysesthesia, contractures and numbness) and a dose-limiting ...


A Novel Technique of HALS With CME and CVL for RCC

Laparoscopic colectomy was first described by Jacobs in the early 1990s. Since then, as a minimally invasive approach, laparoscopic surgery has been gaining popularity for colorectal resection. Compared to open colectomy, laparoscopic colectomy has advantages in blood loss, recovery of bowel function, need for narcotic analgesics, and hospital stay. The ...


Effects of S-1 and Capecitabine on Coronary Artery Blood Flow

Fluoropyrimidine chemotherapy agents , such as 5-fluorouracil and capecitabine, are occasionally associated with cardiac toxicity. Clinical fluoropyrimidine cardiotoxicity is infrequent, but subclinical toxicity may be much more common. Cardiac toxicity may be less frequent with S-1 as compared with 5-fluorouracil and capecitabine, but head-to-head comparisons are lacking. The purpose of ...


Safety Study of Transumbilical Single Incision Versus Conventional Laparoscopic Surgery for Colorectal Cancer

Compared with traditional open colectomy, laparoscopic surgery is associated with less pain, earlier recovery, and better cosmetic outcome, and its short- and long-term oncologic outcomes have been demonstrated. In experienced surgeons' hands, single incision laparoscopic surgery is increasingly performed for colorectal disease, and even for malignant lesion because of its ...


Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Oligometastases From Colorectal Cancer

Single arms prospective phase II study of SBRT for oligometastatases from colorectal cancer, the primary concerns are treatment efficacy and toxicities.


Consolidative Radiotherapy for Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases Receiving Surgery or Radiofrequency Ablation

Liver metastases are detected in 40-50% of patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Local treatments like surgical resection or radiofrequency ablation result in 5-year survival of 35%. However, relapse still occurs in 70% of patients. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) has emerged as a valid treatment not only to provide excellent symptom ...


RhGM-CSF as Adjuvant Immunotherapy in Treating Stage III Colon Cancer

This study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of rhGM-CSF as adjuvant immunotherapy for patients with resectable stage III colon cancers. Patients were randomly assigned to rhGM-CSF group or placebo group and treated with rhGM-CSF or placebo perioperation and during the adjuvant chemotherapy. The purpose of the study is ...


Clinical Study of Apatinib and XELOX Combination Regimen to Treat Colorectal Cancer Patients

XELOX chemotherapy is an effective therapy for metastatic colorectal cancer as first-line treatment. Apatinib is a small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) that highly selectively binds to and strongly inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2), with a decrease in VEGF-mediated endothelial cell migration, proliferation, and tumor microvascular density. A ...
