Bone marrow metastasis (BMM) in patients with solid cancers is indicative of advanced-stage disease with a poor prognosis. The clinical features and outcomes remain unclear. We aimed to develop a scoring system to predict survival in these patients to help with clinical decision making. A total of 165 adult patients diagnosed with solid cancers and BMM(More)
Growing evidence has shown that regulatory T cells (Tregs) and myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) abnormally increase in cancer cachectic patients. Suppressions of Tregs and MDSCs may enhance anti-tumor immunity for cancer patients. Fish oil and selenium have been known to have many biological activities such as anti-inflammation and anti-oxidation.(More)
Drug repositioning is a popular approach in the pharmaceutical industry for identifying potential new uses for existing drugs and accelerating the development time. Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. To reduce the biological heterogeneity effects among different individuals, both normal and cancer tissues(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a lethal disease without effective treatments at present. It ranks as s as 4th and 5th in cancer-related mortality in the western countries and worldwide. Locally advanced pancreatic duct carcinoma (PDAC) and metastatic PDAC, usually found the metastases over liver, peritoneum, or lung, have been shown to be with dismal prognosis. Brain(More)
This study aimed to construct a scoring system developed exclusively from the preoperative data that predicts 1-year postoperative mortality in patients with solid cancers. A total of 20,632 patients who had a curative resection for solid-organ cancers between 2007 and 2012 at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital Linkou Medical Center were included in the(More)
Anthracycline and taxane are classes of drugs that are frequently used in the adjuvant and palliative settings of metastatic breast cancer (MBC); however, treatment failure occurs in most cases. Limited data demonstrated favorable response in MBC after previous taxane-based treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of(More)
CONTEXT Appropriate selection of aging patient who fit for cancer surgery is an art-of-state. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to identify predictive factors pertinent to 3-month postoperative mortality in geriatric cancer patients. METHODS A total of 8,425 patients over 70 years old with solid cancer received radical surgery between 2007 and 2012 at four(More)
PEP02 (also known as MM-398, nal-IRI) is a novel nanoparticle formulation of irinotecan encapsulated in liposomes. The aims of this study were to investigate the dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and pharmacokinetics (PK) of PEP02 in combination with 5-FU and LV, in patients with advanced refractory solid tumors. Patients were(More)
Dasatinib is a potent second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia. The most common adverse event associated with dasatinib therapy is fluid retention, including pleural effusion. Dasatinib-related chylothorax has rarely been reported. The clinical manifestations, pathophysiology, management, and prognosis are(More)
