The combination of docetaxel and estramustine has exhibited synergistic activity both in prostate cancer cell lines and in patients with hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC). Based on these promising preclinical and phase I/II data, we conducted a study of weekly docetaxel and estramustine in patients with metastatic HRPC and a poor performance status.(More)
Primary squamous cell colorectal carcinomas are uncommon, and their characteristics are not well known. They seem to occur most commonly in the fifth decade of life with a slight predominance for men. The most commonly reported anatomic locations are the rectum and the proximal colon. Clinical features and common diagnostic methods do not easily(More)
Primary cutaneous T- and B-cell lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of diseases with varied clinical presentations and prognosis. The use of new molecular, histological, and clinical criteria has improved their recognition. Cutaneous B-cell and T-cell lymphomas are seldom found together in the same patient. Here we report a rare case of mycosis fungoides(More)
e16509 Background: Majority of cancer patients (pts) are diagnosed and treated in the community. Community oncologists lack adequate time, resource, incentive, infrastructure, and reimbursement to conduct clinical trials, resulting in 3-5% national enrollment rate. NCCCP is designed to create a CBCC network to support basic, clinical and population-based(More)
Radiation recall syndrome is an acute inflammatory reaction developing at anatomical sites of previously irradiated tissue, weeks to months after the completion of radiation therapy. The distribution pattern of inflammation typically involves, and remains limited to, the boundaries of prior radiation treatment fields. Several classical chemotherapy drugs(More)
cis-Platinum is a chemotherapeutic agent with benefits often limited by the severe gastrointestinal reactions it produces in nearly all patients. Persistent anorexia, nausea, and vomiting may continue for days after therapy and are poorly controlled by conventional antiemetics. Patients at times refuse continuation of cis-platinum chemotherapy because of(More)
Purpose Increasing new cancer cases and approval of effective but expensive new drugs extending survival have led to unsustainable cancer care costs. Potential cost savings by a hypothetical dose down-rounding project of monoclonal antibodies at a community-based cancer center is presented. Methods From October 2014 through October 2015, metastatic cancer(More)
