OBJECTIVES We aimed to determine the incidence of women's breast cancer in Italy without using statistical approximations. METHODS We analyzed the national hospitalizations database at the Ministry of Health to calculate the number of major surgeries in Italian women (mastectomies and quadrantectomies) due to breast cancer between 2000 and 2005, overall(More)
A phase II trial of 5FU in modulation with intravenous high-dose levofolinic acid and oral hydroxyurea (HU) in advanced unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A total of 50 consecutive patients, 38 males (76%) and 12 females (24%), with a mean age of 62 years (range 30-74) and a mean performance status of 80 (KI, range 60-90) were enrolled. The vast(More)
BACKGROUND The objectives of the current study were: 1) to verify whether the addition of modulating low doses of interferon-2b (IFN) to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and levofolinic acid (1-FA) could improve clinical results in patients with advanced colorectal carcinoma; and 2) to evaluate the role of tumor burden and liver involvement as prognostic factors.

From July 1992 to December 1993, 62 patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were admitted to a multicentric randomized study. The patients were treated with vinorelbine (V) alone at a dose of 25 mg/m(2)/i.v. weekly or with V at a dose of 25 mg/m(2)/i.v. on day 1 and 8 plus cisplatin at a dose of 80 mg/m(2)/i.v. on day 1 every 3-4 weeks (VP).

We investigated the association between mode of breast cancer (Bca) detection and diagnosis delay in a case-series of primary, histologically confirmed Bca patients from Southern Italy. Nine hundred and fifty nine women diagnosed with incident, primary Bca were recruited in two southern Italian regions. We grouped the mode of detection into two categories:(More)
Background: Cancer Registries (CRs) remain the gold standard for providing official epidemiological estimations. However, due to CRs' partial population coverage, hospitalization records might represent a valuable tool to provide additional information on cancer occurrence and expenditures at national/regional level for research purposes. The Epidemiology(More)
