Patients with peritoneal or local metastases from colorectal cancer have a poor prognosis. However, aggressive treatments by debulking surgery and infusional intraperitoneal (i.p.) chemotherapy have been tried and appear to benefit selected patients. We assayed the effects of debulking surgery and i.p. chemotherapy with respect to survival and compared the(More)
BACKGROUND Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) is fatal without special combined cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC). This study was designed to identify factors that may increase the risk of postoperative morbidity and mortality from combined CRS and IPC interventions for PC. Survival based on primary tumour type and extent of(More)

OBJECTIVE Turnover of the extracellular matrix in all solid organs is governed mainly by a balance between the degrading matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs). An altered extracellular matrix metabolism has been implicated in a variety of diseases. We investigated relations of serum levels of MMP-9 and TIMP-1 to mortality risk(More)
This EORTC multicentre study analysed the efficacy and tolerability in patients with metastatic uveal melanoma of BOLD chemotherapy in combination with recombinant interferon alpha-2b. The dose of bleomycin was 15 mg on days 2 and 5, of vincristine 1 mg/m(2) on days 1 and 4, of lomustine 80 mg on day 1, and of dacarbazine (DTIC) 200 mg/m(2) on days 1-5,(More)
