This paper describes the clinical results and immunologic changes in cutaneous melanoma patients receiving active specific immunotherapy with autologous dendritic cell vaccine (DCV) in combination with cyclophosphamide used as immunologic adjuvant. Twenty eight patients with morphologically verified stage III-IV cutaneous melanoma receiving therapy in N. N.(More)
Vemurafenib, a specific inhibitor of mutated BRAF kinase, may activate wild-type BRAF and therefore induce squamous cell skin carcinomas in patients treated for melanoma. All vemurafenib clinical trials excluded patients with multiple primary malignant tumors; therefore, the action of this drug on concurrent BRAF wild-type malignancies remains(More)
High doses of recombinant interleukin-2 (rlL-2) have been shown to provide clinical effect and long-term survival in patients with malignant melanoma. We have performed a phase 1 study of rIL-2 "Roncoleukin", produced in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Twenty six patients with disseminated malignant melanoma received from 12 up to 108 millions international units(More)
Endogenous intoxication and immune insufficiency accompany neoplastic process. Complex therapy for cancer worsens these pathologic conditions by its adverse effects (AE) and thus complicates treatment. Efferent therapy can provide continuity of antineoplastic therapy with normalization of hemostasis and decreasing the rate of AE and their intensity.(More)
Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) comprise a heterogeneous group of rare malignancies from mesenchymal tissues. The biology of STS causes high aggressiveness, poor prognosis due to early development of distant metastases and limited chemotherapeutic options due to tumor resistance. The paper considers the current principles of chemotherapy for early and metastatic(More)
We performed a treatment efficacy analysis for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients' population with EGFR mutation aimed at optimization of pharmacoeconomic factors. The employment of gefitinib leads to an increase in patients' life expectancy for a median of 1.05 years. The average cost-effectiveness of this therapy is 934.8 thousand rubles per(More)
