The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of belotecan in combination with cisplatin in patients with previously non-treated extensive stage small cell lung cancer. A total of 42 patients were enrolled and treated with combination of belotecan 0.5mg/m2 on daily basis throughout day 1-4 and cisplatin 60 mg/m2 on day 1 of a 3-week(More)
To elucidate whether tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) resistance in chronic myeloid leukemia is associated with characteristic genomic alterations, we analyzed DNA samples from 45 TKI-resistant chronic myeloid leukemia patients with 250K single nucleotide polymorphism arrays. From 20 patients, matched serial samples of pretreatment and TKI resistance time(More)
Although flecainide has a risk of proarrhythmia in patients with structural heart disease, its mechanism has been mainly ascribed to use-dependency and a rapid ventricular response to organized atrial tachyarrhythmias or to ventricular tachycardia. We present a patient who experienced recurrent syncope due to bradycardia-dependent torsade de pointes (TdP)(More)
AIM To evaluate changing treatment patterns and survival outcomes of elderly patients (age 70 years or older) with resectable colon cancer over the past 15 years. METHODS A total of 857 patients aged over 70 years who were managed for a resectable colon cancer between 1994 and 2010 were identified and their clinical variables were analyzed(More)
PURPOSE The goals of this study were to investigate the clinical activity, safety, and biomarkers of dacomitinib, an irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor of EGFR, HER2, and HER4, in recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (R/M-SCCHN). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients were eligible if the diseases were not amenable to(More)
Squamous cell carcinoma (SQCC) of the lung is the second-largest subtype of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), causing an estimated 400,000 deaths per year worldwide. Recent developments in cancer genome sequencing technology expanded our knowledge of driver mutations, which were identified as novel candidates for targeted therapy in various cancers.(More)
Mucinous colorectal carcinoma exhibits distinct clinicopathological features compared to non-mucinous colorectal carcinoma. Previous studies have discovered several molecular genetic features in mucinous colorectal carcinomas, but have limitations as they are confined to a small number of molecules. To understand the mucinous colorectal carcinoma system,(More)
In this paper, we propose an authentication and secure channel establishment protocol that is reliable and adaptable for multihop wireless home networks. The main idea is that a home server hands over its authenticating capability to some already authenticated devices to enable these devices to be able to authenticate other devices which cannot reach the(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies have not defined the role of telemonitoring with educational tools in outpatients with advanced cancers. We tested the effectiveness of standardized education and telemonitoring for improving pain, distress, anxiety, depression, quality of life (QoL), and performance in outpatients with advanced cancers. METHODS A total of 108(More)
Lung adenocarcinoma is a highly heterogeneous disease with various etiologies, prognoses, and responses to therapy. Although genome-scale characterization of lung adenocarcinoma has been performed, a comprehensive somatic mutation analysis of EGFR/KRAS/ALK-negative lung adenocarcinoma in never-smokers has not been conducted. We analyzed whole exome(More)
