The primary objective of this study was to determine the response rates of the gemcitabine and cisplatin combination in unresectable gall bladder cancer patients. The secondary objectives were to evaluate the toxicity, time to progressive disease, and overall survival. Chemonaïve patients with histologically proven, unresectable bidimensionally measurable(More)
OBJECTIVE Colorectal cancer (CRC) development involves underlying modifications at genetic/epigenetic level. This study evaluated the role of Kras gene mutation and RASSF1A, FHIT and MGMT gene promoter hypermethylation together/independently in sporadic CRC in Indian population and correlation with clinicopathological variables of the disease. METHODS One(More)
BACKGROUND Adenocarcinoma, a subgroup of non-small cell lung cancer, is the most frequent form occurring in the non-smokers. Mutation in tyrosine kinase domain of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) has been a common feature observed in lung adenocarcinoma. The study was carried out to detect the prevalence of EGFR mutation in lung adenocarcinoma. (More)
BACKGROUND Gemcitabine, an anti-metabolite, has some activity in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in terms of responses and median survival. AIMS To analyze our experience with the use of gemcitabine in combination with cisplatin in HCC with respect to response, toxicity and survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied the records of patients of HCC treated(More)
BACKGROUND Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a recent concept and the burning topic of research today. Various studies have been reported in western literature on TNBCs or the similar group of basal like cancers, all highlighting the poor prognostic features of this molecular subtype in comparison to the other types of breast cancers. However(More)
CONTEXT Lung cancer has been the most common cancer in the world for several decades. Pemetrexed is recommended as an option for the maintenance treatment in metastatic adenocarcinoma lung, if disease has not progressed immediately following platinum-based chemotherapy. AIMS To study efficacy and toxicity profile of pemetrexed as a maintenance(More)
Clinical trials are the mainstay for bringing out newer and better drugs to serve the mankind. By virtue of participating in a clinical trial, a patient receives access to the newer drugs/therapies, but nothing is generally being offered to them once their participation in the study comes to an end. Though the issue of post-trial access to treatment by(More)
BACKGROUND The present study observed the expression levels of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), p53, Bcl2, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), cyclooxygenase-2 (cox-2), cyclin D1, human epidermal receptor-2 (HER-2) and Ki-67 in gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) and their association with clinicopathological profiles and disease outcomes.

The data presents 75 chronic myeloid leukemia patients diagnosed over a period 6 years i.e. from 2002 to 2008. The most common presentation was splenomegaly and 97% achieved complete hematological response at median duration of 4.3 weeks. The uniqueness of this study is follow-up with molecular response monitoring. Nearly, 30% patients achieved major(More)
Several radiotracers have been used for assessing cell death, whether by necrosis or apoptosis. (99m)Tc glucarate, which has initially been reported to be concentrating/accumulating in myocardial infarction or zones of cerebral injury, has also shown some tumor-seeking properties in a few preliminary studies. Under International Atomic Energy Agency(More)
