PURPOSE Olaparib is an oral poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor with activity in germline BRCA1 and BRCA2 (BRCA1/2) -associated breast and ovarian cancers. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of olaparib in a spectrum of BRCA1/2-associated cancers. PATIENTS AND METHODS This multicenter phase II study enrolled individuals with a germline BRCA1/2(More)
There are no definitive data in humans on the dose dependence and/or cycle dependence of the pharmacokinetics (PK) of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD). This study examined the PK of PLD across a twofold dose variation and along 3 cycles. Fifteen patients received PLD in successive doses of 60, 30, and 45 mg/m2 (Arm A) and 30, 60, and 45 mg/m2 (Arm B),(More)
OBJECTIVE The efficacy and safety of olaparib, an oral poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, was investigated in a subgroup of patients with germline BRCA1/2 mutated (gBRCA1/2m) advanced ovarian cancer who had received ≥3 prior lines of chemotherapy. Primary data from this Phase II study (Study 42, ClinicalTrials.govNCT01078662) have been reported(More)
A large number of dying patients receive palliative care at home, and although palliative sedation (PS) may be indicated, literature describing PS at home is scarce. This study is a retrospective description of PS delivered to terminal patients at home from December 2000 to March 2006. A total of 36 patients (with a median age of 65) received home PS.(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical activity and toxicity of weekly topotecan in a large cohort of epithelial ovarian (EOC), primary peritoneal (PPC), and tubal cancer patients. METHODS Records of patients with recurrent EOC, PPC, and tubal cancer who were treated with weekly topotecan (4.0 mg/m on days 1, 8, and 15 on a 28-day(More)

INTRODUCTION There are approximately 40,000 new cases of pancreatic adenocarcinoma diagnosed in the USA each year. It is estimated that 5-10% of all patients with pancreatic cancer have a first-degree relative with the disease, while up to 20% of cases have a hereditary component. Individuals who carry a germline mutation in the BRCA 1 or 2 genes have an(More)
AIM To assess the efficacy and safety of the combination of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) and carboplatin in patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian carcinoma (ROC), following disease progression on single agent PLD. METHODS An analysis of the medical records of 10 patients with ROC, treated in our institution with a combination of PLD and(More)
BACKGROUND Primary malignant melanoma of the vagina is extremely rare, accounting for 0.3-0.8% of all malignant melanomas. True amelanotic vaginal melanoma showing no melanin on histological examination is exceedingly rare, accounting for only 2% of all vaginal melanomas. CASE REPORT We describe a 31-year-old female patient who presented with locally(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the clinical activity and toxicity of liposome-encapsulated doxorubicin citrate (Myocet) in a retrospective multicenter cohort of epithelial ovarian, primary peritoneal, and tubal cancer patients. Records of patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian, primary peritoneal, and tubal cancer treated with liposome-encapsulated(More)
