BACKGROUND The Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) guidelines were developed in the mid-1990s for the explicit purpose of improving clinical trial reporting. However, there is little information regarding the adherence to CONSORT guidelines of recent publications of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in oncology. METHODS All phase III(More)
BACKGROUND Randomized clinical trials showed the benefit of adjuvant trastuzumab-based chemotherapy (ATBC) for node-positive and/or >1 cm HER2+ breast carcinomas. No efficacy data have been published on ATBC in large series of pT1abN0 HER2+ tumors. PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study evaluated 276 cases of pT1abN0 HER2+ breast tumors in eight(More)
This retrospective observational study was designed to describe feasibility and tolerance of adjuvant Taxotere®/cyclophosphamide (TC) chemotherapy in women aged over 70 years with early breast cancer. Data including geriatric evaluations were collected from the medical charts of 110 patients from 14 oncology institutions in France who had completed adjuvant(More)
PURPOSE The Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) guidance was extended in 2004 to provide a set of 10 specific and comprehensive guidelines regarding adverse event (AE) reporting in randomized clinical trials (RCTs). Limited data exist regarding adherence to these guidelines in publications of oncology RCTs. METHODS All phase III RCTs(More)
UNLABELLED The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of capecitabine as a single agent in the treatment of recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Patients were treated with oral capecitabine according to good clinical practice. Efficacy and safety outcomes were analyzed retrospectively. The response and(More)
BACKGROUND The Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) guidance was extended in 2013 to provide a set of specific recommendations regarding patient-reported outcomes (PROs) reporting in randomized clinical trials (RCTs). There is limited data regarding how well current publications of oncology RCTs report PROs if assessed using these(More)
Objectives Several targeted therapies are available for metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) but no predictive factor of response to these treatments has been identified yet. Our aim was to identify and evaluate clinical, biological, histological and functional markers of response to everolimus. Methods We retrospectively reviewed 53 patients with NETs(More)
The combination platinum, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and cetuximab is the standard first-line regimen of recurrent and/or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Due to the toxicity of this treatment, alternative therapies are often offered to patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the overall survival obtained with a first line(More)
BACKGROUND Physicians need clinical trials assessing benefits and harms of treatments to avoid under-treatment or over-treatment of elderly patients. The main objectives of this report were to examine how data regarding elderly oncology patients were presented in medical literature; and to assess the evolution of this presentation between two time periods.(More)
