AIM Adjuvant chemoradiation has become a standard of care in the USA. We evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of adjuvant chemoradiation versus chemotherapy in completely resected locally advanced gastric cancer. METHODS Patients with stage IIIA, IIIB and IV (without metastasis) gastric cancer were treated with chemoradiation and 5-fluorouracil/cisplatin(More)
AIM To investigate the efficacy of hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) using floxuridine (FUDR) in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) confined to the liver. METHODS Thirty-four patients who had advanced HCC with unresectability or unsuccessful previous therapy in the absence of extrahepatic metastasis were treated with(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the feasibility of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) as a method of boost radiotherapy after the initial irradiation by the conventional anterior/posterior opposed beams for centrally located non-small-cell lung cancer through the evaluation of dose distributions according to the various boost methods. METHODS AND MATERIALS(More)
Studies from the Far East have demonstrated that D2-dissection is superior to D0/1-dissection. The effect of postoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) after D2-dissection has not been accepted due to the lack of D2-dissection in Western countries, as well as the potential harmful effect of radiotherapy. In the current NCCN guideline, adjuvant chemotherapy alone(More)
Beta-lapachone (β-Lap; 3,4-dihydro-2, 2-dimethyl-2H-naphthol[1, 2-b]pyran-5,6-dione) is a novel anti-cancer drug under phase I/II clinical trials. β-Lap has been demonstrated to cause apoptotic and necrotic death in a variety of human cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. The mechanisms underlying the β-Lap toxicity against cancer cells has been controversial.(More)
HS-1200, a synthetic chenodeoxycholic acid derivative, has cytotoxic activity in various human cancer cells. The present study was undertaken to examine whether HS-1200 sensitizes radiation-induced apoptosis in MCF-7 human breast carcinoma cells. Clonogenic assay elucidated that the combination treatment with HS-1200 and radiation induced more cytotoxic(More)
Doxorubicin is known to be the most effective single cytotoxic drug against anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC). Although doxorubicin has been shown to cause cell death, at least partly, by inducing apoptosis in ATC cells, the mechanism underlying its pharmacological efficacy has not been fully delineated. We, in this study, revealed that doxorubicin induced(More)
PURPOSE To assess the feasibility and therapeutic benefits of a combination of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and high-dose-rate intraluminal brachytherapy (ILBT) for treating patients with inoperable carcinoma of the extrahepatic bile ducts. METHODS AND MATERIALS Of 31 patients who received RT at the Yonsei Cancer Center, Yonsei University College of(More)
AIM To determine the national practice processes of care and outcomes of radiotherapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Korea. PATIENTS AND METHODS A national survey of 53 institutions nationwide was conducted by requesting data on their experience of radiotherapy for HCC. Among them, 10 institutions were selected for performing more detailed(More)
We investigated the effects of an acidic environment on the G2/M-phase arrest, apoptosis, clonogenic death, and changes in cyclin B1-CDC2 kinase activity caused by a 4-Gy irradiation in RKO.C human colorectal cancer cells in vitro. The time to reach peak G2/M-phase arrest after irradiation was delayed in pH 6.6 medium compared to that in pH 7.5 medium.(More)
