PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and safety of fludarabine phosphate with cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisone (CVP) in 381 previously untreated, advanced-stage, low-grade (lg) non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients in a phase III, multicenter study. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1993 and 1997, patients were randomly assigned to treatment with(More)
BACKGROUND The past three decades have seen rapid improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of most cancers and the most important contributor has been research. Progress in rare cancers has been slower, not least because of the challenges of undertaking research. SETTINGS The International Rare Cancers Initiative (IRCI) is a partnership which aims to(More)
BACKGROUND ECCO essential requirements for quality cancer care (ERQCC) are checklists and explanations of organisation and actions that are necessary to give high-quality care to patients who have a specific tumour type. They are written by European experts representing all disciplines involved in cancer care. ERQCC papers give oncology teams, patients,(More)

CPI-0004Na is a tetrapeptidic extracellularly tumour-activated prodrug of doxorubicin. The tetrapeptide structure ensures blood stability and selective cleavage by unidentified peptidase(s) released by tumour cells. The purpose of this work was to identify the enzyme responsible for the first rate-limiting step of CPI-0004Na activation, initially attributed(More)
The challenges faced in developing value-based diagnostics has resulted in few of these tests reaching the clinic, leaving many treatment modalities without matching diagnostics to select patients for particular therapies. Many patients receive therapies from which they are unlikely to benefit, resulting in worse outcomes and wasted health care resources.(More)
Cancer clinical trials and, in general, cancer clinical research by definition need a multi-modality approach. It is not enough to discover and register new drugs. To get cancer under control requires us to perform complex clinical studies that integrate drugs, companion diagnostics, new or improved surgical procedures and new radiotherapy approaches as(More)
