BACKGROUND Between 1990 and 2000, we examined the effect of timing of non-platinum chemotherapy when combined with radiotherapy. We aimed to determine whether giving chemotherapy concurrently with radiotherapy or as maintenance therapy, or both, affected clinical outcome. Here we report survival and recurrence after 10 years of follow-up. METHODS Between(More)
Patients with recurrent or refractory head and neck squamous cell carcinoma received cisplatin/epinephrine injectable gel or placebo gel injected directly into the clinically dominant tumour. The double-blind phase III trial comprised of up to 6 weekly treatments over 8 weeks, 4 weekly evaluation visits, and then monthly follow-up; open-label dosing began(More)
An in vivo 31P NMR spectrum was obtained from each of four human breast tumours. The phosphomonoester and phosphodiester region of each spectrum consisted of a broad peak. Chemical extracts from samples of each of the tumours obtained at resection were examined on a high field strength NMR system. The phosphomonoester region in the spectrum from each(More)
We conducted a phase I/II study investigating synchronous chemoradiotherapy with mitomycin C and infusional 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in muscle invasive bladder cancer. Early dose escalation results were previously published. We report the long-term toxicity and efficacy results with the optimised regimen. Patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer with(More)
Lonidamine is a substituted indazole carboxylic acid with a unique mechanism of action and early clinical studies have reported anti-tumour activity. In a phase II study 32 patients with previously treated advanced breast cancer were given Lonidamine in a daily divided oral dose of 600 mg. Of 28 patients evaluable for response, three (11%) achieved a(More)
Three models defining mucosal tolerance when radiotherapy alone is delivered have been published. Modelling studies have converted the contribution of synchronous chemotherapy to the rate of grade 3 mucositis to biologically effective dose (BED). The purpose of this study was to apply radiotherapy mucosal tolerance models to studies of synchronous(More)
A growing understanding of the biology of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has led to the development and US Food and Drug Administration approval of seven new molecular targeted agents over the past 7 years. Axitinib is a potent, selective, second-generation inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors and the latest to join the armamentarium of(More)
