PURPOSE In platinum-resistant ovarian cancer (OC), single-agent chemotherapy is standard. Bevacizumab is active alone and in combination. AURELIA is the first randomized phase III trial to our knowledge combining bevacizumab with chemotherapy in platinum-resistant OC. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eligible patients had measurable/assessable OC that had progressed(More)
OBJECTIVES To conduct a survey of the angiosarcomas developing after breast conservation for carcinoma in the French Cancer Centers, to study the evolution of these cases in detail, and to review literature in an attempt to propose an optimal treatment scheme. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eleven of the 20 French Cancer Centers agreed to research and(More)
PURPOSE Trastuzumab plus chemotherapy has become the standard of care for human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2) -positive breast cancer. Trastuzumab-based preoperative systemic therapy (PST; neoadjuvant therapy) also appears promising, warranting further investigation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with HER-2-positive, stage II/III,(More)
LBA5002^ Background: In three phase III trials in OC (2 front line, 1 PT-sensitive recurrent), BEV + CT → BEV significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) vs CT alone. AURELIA is the first randomized trial of BEV in PT-resistant OC. METHODS Eligible patients (pts) had OC (measurable by RECIST 1.0 or assessable) that had progressed ≤6 mo after ≥4(More)
BACKGROUND Data from prospective clinical trials are needed to better define standards of care in elderly patients with advanced ovarian carcinoma and to demonstrate the interest of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) in this fragile and heterogeneous population. PATIENTS AND METHODS From July 1998 to October 2000, 83 advanced ovarian carcinoma(More)
BACKGROUND Platinum-based chemotherapy is standard second-line treatment of patients with advanced ovarian cancer (AOC) in late relapse. Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) has significant single-agent activity in this setting. Therefore, we evaluated the use of PLD plus carboplatin in this patient population. PATIENTS AND METHODS PLD 30 mg/m(2)(More)
BACKGROUND Trastuzumab plus chemotherapy has become the standard of care for women with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer. Trastuzumab-based pre-operative systemic (neo-adjuvant) therapy (PST) also appears promising, warranting further investigation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with HER2-positive, stage(More)
In 231 subjects with Type 1 diabetes mellitus aged 17.6 ± 4.0 years, with a diabetes duration of 8.5 ± 4.9 years at the end of the study, the prevalence and the development of retinopathy during a period of 5 years were studied. All patients were examined between one and six times both by ophthalmoscopy and fluorescein angiography. A total of 626(More)
BACKGROUND Carboplatin plus paclitaxel administered every 3 weeks is standard first-line chemotherapy for patients with advanced ovarian cancer. A weekly paclitaxel schedule combined with carboplatin every 3 weeks prolonged progression-free survival and overall survival in a Japanese phase 3 trial. The aim of our study was to assess whether a weekly(More)
Among the secondary complications of diabetes, early stages of retinopathy and nephropathy are of foremost importance in paediatrics. Regular examinations of retinal status and of urinary albumin excretion therefore become necessary with the onset of puberty or after 5 years of diabetes duration. With fluorescein angiography, the first retinal changes can(More)
