PURPOSE To evaluate the response, toxicity, survival, and quality of life in patients with unresectable or metastatic esophageal cancer treated with weekly irinotecan and cisplatin. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients with metastatic or unresectable esophageal adenocarcinoma (23 patients) or squamous cell carcinoma (12 patients) were treated. No(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of paclitaxel administered as a 1-hour infusion on weekly basis, without interruption, to patients with metastatic breast cancer who had received prior therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty patients with metastatic breast cancer received sustained weekly paclitaxel therapy at an initial dose of 100 mg/m2 until(More)
To develop guidelines describing a standardised approach regarding the acquisition, interpretation and reporting of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for clinical staging and restaging of rectal cancer. A consensus meeting of 14 abdominal imaging experts from the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) was conducted following the(More)
Cancer chemotherapy has evolved from cytotoxic agents and now includes several new agents that target specific molecules responsible for the regulation of cell growth, nutrient supply, and differentiation. These molecularly targeted therapies have a different mechanism of action than do classic cytotoxic agents, which predominantly attack rapidly(More)
PURPOSE Whole-body 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging before and after induction therapy was prospectively evaluated in patients with esophageal cancer to determine whether changes in PET images could measure response to therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between April 1997 and April 1999, 39 patients (34 men and five(More)
To determine the ability of dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE-MRI) to predict pathological complete response (pCR) after preoperative chemotherapy for rectal cancer. In a prospective clinical trial, 23/34 enrolled patients underwent pre- and post-treatment DCE-MRI performed at 1.5T. Gadolinium 0.1 mmol/kg was injected at a rate of 2 mL/s. Using a(More)
PURPOSE Although neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy achieves low local recurrence rates in clinical stages II to III rectal cancer, it delays administration of optimal chemotherapy. We evaluated preoperative infusional fluorouracil, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin (FOLFOX)/bevacizumab with selective rather than consistent use of chemoradiotherapy. PATIENTS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to determine the overall proportion of clinically worrisome and benign pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) occurring in patients with cancer and to evaluate associated risk factors and CT features. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively studied the CT examinations of 84 patients treated at our tertiary cancer center.(More)
PURPOSE BRAF-mutant metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) forms an aggressive subset of colorectal cancer with minimal response to selective RAF inhibitors. Preclinical data show that reactivation of EGFR signaling occurs in colorectal tumor cells treated with RAF inhibitors and that the addition of an EGFR inhibitor enhances antitumor activity. These data(More)
