Eight of 46 (17.4%) patients treated in our trial of continuous hepatic artery infusion (CHAI) of fluorodeoxyuridine (FUDR) by Infusaid pump developed biliary strictures. The lesions were clinically, radiographically, and pathologically identical to the idiopathic sclerosing cholangitis frequently seen in association with inflammatory bowel disease.(More)
Preoperative biochemical liver function tests and computerized axial tomographic (CAT) scans were performed on 100 patients as part of a prospective randomized study of treatments for liver metastases from colorectal cancer. The CAT scans reliably reflected the presence of disease in most patients but only accurately demonstrated the number and location of(More)
This paper presents an updated estimate of the higher-order mode impedance spectrum of the RF cavities for the PEP-II B-factory. The cavity is designed for continuous operation at 476 MHz with up to 150 kW wall dissipation and heavy beam loading. To reduce the growth rates of coupled-bunch instabilities the cavity higher-order modes are damped by three(More)
Seventy-nine patients with advanced, measurable, metastatic colorectal cancer previously unexposed to chemotherapy were randomly assigned to treatment with either fluorouracil (FUra) administered intravenously at a dose of 370 mg/m2/d for 5 days or the combination of FUra in the same dose and schedule with high-dose continuous infusion leucovorin calcium(More)
Sixty women with metastatic breast cancer refractory to at least one chemotherapeutic regimen were treated with fluorouracil (FUra) and high-dose continuous infusion folinic acid (leucovorin calcium). One complete remission lasting 8.7 months and nine partial remissions ranging in duration from 1.3 to 12.8 months were observed, for an objective response(More)
Encouraging results have recently been reported for studies using folinic acid in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies. Thirty-six patients with advanced colorectal cancer with unequivocal evidence of progression while treated with fluoropyrimidines were treated with a six-day continuous(More)
A randomized phase II study of intraperitoneal (ip) mitoxantrone or floxuridine (FUDR) was performed for the treatment of minimal residual epithelial ovarian cancer found at second-look laparotomy after initial platinum-based chemotherapy. Entry was to take place within 30 days of reassessment laparotomies, with documentation of peritoneal metastases either(More)
This study investigated the antiemetic properties of four different doses of prochlorperazine (10 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, 40 mg) when given randomly to patients receiving four cycles of the same dose of cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Prochlorperazine was given to 71 patients by slow intravenous infusion 30 minutes before and 3 and 6 hours after the start of(More)
The implantable pump for continuous hepatic artery chemotherapy requires even distribution of the chemotherapy to the whole liver for maximum efficacy. The hepatic arterial supply and its anomalies must be understood to achieve this. We reviewed the arteriograms of 100 patients who were potentially arterial perfusion candidates. Fifty percent had normal(More)
