Paclitaxel is widely used in the treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Formulations of paclitaxel contain surfactants and solvents or albumin derived from human blood. The use of co-solvents such as polyoxyethylated castor oil is thought to contribute to toxicity profile and hypersensitivity reactions as well as leaching of plasticizers(More)
Yolk sac tumors are common in children. By virtue of being chemosensitive, they are amenable to cure by chemotherapy alone and radical surgery is often not required. Yolk sac tumors occurring in the vagina are rare and thus may not be recognized early or may be inadvertently subjected to radical surgery. The authors report a case that presented to them(More)

Advances in the management of ovarian cancer by use of aggressive surgery and effective platinum-based chemotherapy have prolonged survival; this may have resulted in an alteration of the metastatic pattern of the disease and spread to unusual sites (e.g, CNS) has become more common. Also, with the availability of more sensitive imaging techniques, these(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic stem cell disorder characterized by the balanced reciprocal translocation t (9:22). The resulting fusion gene, the BCR-ABL, is responsible for oncogenesis. Imatinib mesylate is a novel molecule, which inhibits the protein product of this fusion gene and hence has been used in the treatment of CML. The(More)
Maintaining appropriate dose intensity is important not only in the curative setting but also in treatment with palliative intent. We evaluated the outcome of advanced non small cell lung cancer treated with doublet platinum based chemotherapy. Outcome was compared between patients treated by medical oncologists at a tertiary cancer center and those treated(More)
Advanced head and neck cancer is a major therapeutic problem in India. Ifosfamide has shown significant activity as a single agent in head and neck squamous carcinoma. In this study, we present our experience with two cycles of ifosfamide and cisplatin in the neoadjuvant setting given to a total of 519 patients. The complete response rate was 20% and the(More)
The Oncology Gold Standard (OGS) Expert Group on renal cell carcinoma (RCC) developed the consensus statement to provide community oncologists practical guidelines on the management of advanced clear cell (cc) RCC using published evidence, practical experience of experts in real life management, and results of a nationwide survey involving 144 health-care(More)
