Clinical features were those of LES and occurred insidiously in this 68-year old man: proximal weakness predominant in the lower limbs, generalized areflexia, dryness of the mouth and partial right eye palsy. Investigations disclosed a small cell(More)
The aim of the present retrospective study was to assess long-term survival after cisplatin-based chemotherapy in 398 patients with advanced urothelial transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) treated at seven international oncological units. Various combinations of cisplatin, methotrexate, vinblastine (or vincristine) and doxorubicin were used. The complete(More)
To retrospectively assess the efficacy and safety of Vinflunine (VFL) under routine conditions and identify overall survival (OS) prognostic factors. Twenty centres participated in the retrospective study (minimum 4 patients undergoing VFL treatment for advanced/metastatic UC after platinum-based regimen progression. Primary endpoint was OS. Secondary(More)
Platinum-based systemic chemotherapy is considered the backbone for management of advanced urothelial carcinomas. However there is a lack of real world data on the use of such chemotherapy regimens, on patient profiles and on management after treatment failure. Fifty-one randomly selected physicians from 4 European countries registered 218 consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND Bone metastases (BMs) are associated with poor outcome in metastatic clear-cell renal carcinoma (m-ccRCC) treated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (anti-VEGFR-TKIs). We aimed to investigate whether expression in the primary tumour of genes involved in the development of BM is associated with outcome in(More)
Seven consecutive patients with intra-abdominal desmoplastic small round-cell tumours were screened at presentation for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), Ca19-9, Ca15-3, Ca125, alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) and neuron-specific enolase (NSE). Initially elevated tumour markers were used to monitor therapy and follow-up. Tumour(More)
