Pregnancy outcomes in the normal controls and the treated GDM patients were similar. We showed that, with minimal care delivered in a consistent fashion it was possible to obtain excellent pregnancy(More)

Preclinical and clinical data suggest susceptibility to cytotoxic agents and vascular endothelial growth factor-targeted therapies. We designed a phase 2 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of capecitabine, gemcitabine, and bevacizumab(More)
