BACKGROUND Standard treatment for osteosarcoma patients consists of a combination of cisplatin, adriamycin, and methotrexate before surgical resection of the primary tumour, followed by postoperative chemotherapy including vincristine and cyclophosphamide. Unfortunately, many patients still relapse or suffer adverse events. We examined whether common(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) regulate each other, contributing to tumor progression. We have previously reported that MMP9 induces the release of tumor VEGF, promoting ascites formation in human ovarian carcinoma xenografts. The aim of this study was to investigate whether tumor-derived VEGF regulated the(More)
PURPOSE Hand-foot syndrome (HFS) is one of the most relevant dose-limiting adverse effects of capecitabine, an oral prodrug of 5-fluorouracil used in the standard treatment of breast and colorectal cancer. We investigated the association between grade 3 HFS and genetic variations in genes involved in capecitabine metabolism. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We(More)
