OBJECTIVES Despite advances in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) treatment, many patients suffer from the disease and side effects. Atacicept is a fusion protein that blocks B-lymphocyte stimulator and a proliferation-inducing ligand, which are increased in patients with SLE. METHODS In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, patients with(More)
To test efficacy and tolerability of non-platinum regimens for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Chemonaive patients with measurable stage IIIB/IV NSCLC treated with gemcitabine and cisplatin (GC), or gemcitabine and docetaxel (GD), maximumsix cycles in a phase IIB trial. A total of 108 patients were randomized. Response rates (GC vs. GD,(More)
We performed a literature search that shed light on the signaling pathways involved in the sorafenib activity as first- or subsequent-line treatment, taking into account its toxicity profile. Sorafenib appears to have better tolerability when compared with other agents in the same indication. Cross-resistance between tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) may be(More)
e19089 Background: Bevacizumab, an anti-VEGF monoclonal antibody, improves response rates and prolongs survival in p with non squamous NSCLC when combined with carboplatin-paclitaxel or cisplatin-gemcitabine. This single-arm, open-labeled phase II trial aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of B in combination with another widely used(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effectiveness of a gemcitabine-cisplatin-vinorelbine combination in patients with stage III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients (n=46) with stage III NSCLC and naive of therapy were recruited into the trial to receive gemcitabine (G, 1000 mg/m(2)) on days 1 and 8, cisplatin (C, 100 mg/m(2)) on day 1(More)
Tumors acquire blood vessels by co-option of neighboring vessels from sprouting or intus‐ suscepted microvascular growth and by vasculogenesis from endothelial precursor cells [2]. In most solid tumors the newly formed vessels are plagued by structural and functional ab‐ normalities due to the sustained and excessive exposure to angiogenic factors produced(More)
The goal of this article is to provide recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of muscle-invasive and metastatic bladder cancer. The diagnosis of muscle-invasive bladder cancer is made by pathologic evaluation after transurethral resection. Recently, a molecular classification has been proposed. Staging of muscle-invasive bladder cancer must be done(More)
The current report aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of a biweekly administration of docetaxel and vinorelbine to patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer, who had previously been treated for this disease. In a prospective, multicenter, open-label, phase II trial, patients received 40 mg/m of docetaxel and 20 mg/m of vinorelbine on(More)
e20585 Background: Chemotherapy-induced anemia (CIA) is a frequent complication of patients (pts) with cancer and could be treated with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents such darbepoetin alfa (DA). The aim of this study was to investigate the patterns of use and effect of DA to treat CIA in clinical practice conditions. METHODS This was an observational,(More)
