Doxifluridine, a new fluoropyrimidine derivative, was tested in a cooperative phase II trial by the Swiss Group for Clinical Cancer Research in advanced measurable colorectal cancer. The drug was given in a five consecutive day schedule by a bolus intravenous injection at a dose of 4 g/m2 per day and repeated every three to four weeks. Of 42 eligible(More)
Thirty patients with bronchogenic carcinoma were treated with an 8-week induction therapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, vincristine and VP 16-213 (NSC 141 540). Those who achieved objective remission of tumor stabilization were then placed on an intermittent treatment schedule with the same drugs. Of the 30 patients, 17 had an objective(More)
Alizapride is a new substituted benzamide with suggested superior antiemetic efficacy to and fewer side effects than metoclopramide. High-dose alizapride (4 mg/kg X five doses) was compared with high-dose metoclopramide (2 mg/kg X five doses) in a prospective, randomized, double-blind trial in 62 evaluable patients undergoing strongly emetic cancer(More)
We escalated the dose of tamoxifen (TAM) to 30 or 40 mg daily in 23 patients who had experienced remission or stable disease (NC) under prior treatment with TAM 20 mg daily. One patient, whose bone and soft tissue disease had previously been stabilized under TAM 20 mg daily for 13 months, showed a partial remission (PR) lasting for 6 months. In 14 patients(More)
A 25-year-old patient was treated for a malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the elbow which appeared 6 3/4 years after a severe injury at this site. The reasons for assumption of a causal relationship between the trauma and tumor development are discussed.
Polyethylene (PE) foils were modified by irradiation with Ar+ and Xe+ ions to different fluences and different physico-chemical properties of the irradiated PE were studied in relation to adhesion and proliferation of keratinocytes on the modified surface. Changes in the PE surface roughness were examined using the AFM technique, the production of(More)
