INTRODUCTION Isolated limb perfusion (ILP) is a treatment option most commonly used in the treatment of melanoma in-transit metastases of the extremities. The principle idea is to surgically isolate a region of the body and then deliver a high concentration of a chemotherapeutic agent together with hyperthermia. There have been three randomised trials(More)
Uveal melanoma is a tumour arising from melanocytes of the eye, and 30 per cent of these patients develop liver metastases. Exosomes are small RNA containing nano-vesicles released by most cells, including malignant melanoma cells. This clinical translational study included patients undergoing isolated hepatic perfusion (IHP) for metastatic uveal melanoma,(More)
Isolated hepatic perfusion (IHP) is a procedure where the liver is surgically isolated and perfused with a high concentration of the chemotherapeutic agent melphalan. Briefly, the procedure starts with the setup of a percutaneous veno-venous bypass from the femoral vein to the external jugular vein. Via a laparotomy, catheters are then inserted into the(More)
The role of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) has increasingly been called into question among patients with positive sentinel lymph nodes. Two recent trials have failed to show a survival difference in sentinel node-positive breast cancer patients who were randomized either to undergo completion ALND or not. Neither of the trials, however, included(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with somatostatin receptor-expressing neuroendocrine tumours can be treated with intravenously administered 177Lu-octreotate. Few patients are cured with the present protocol due to the current dose limitation of normal organs at risk, such as the kidneys. By locally administering 177Lu-octreotate to the liver for the purpose of treating(More)
BACKGROUND Breast-conserving surgery is an established alternative for the majority of women with early stage breast cancer. Consensus on negative margins (no ink on tumour) for invasive cancer makes mutilating extensive lumpectomies unnecessary. Several breast-conserving surgical methods are described in the literature. The aim of this study was to(More)
INTRODUCTION Isolated limb perfusion (ILP) is a treatment option for patients with in-transit metastases of malignant melanoma in the extremities, as well as locally advanced sarcoma. ILP allows for a delivery of high-dose chemotherapy to an isolated extremity with minimal systemic toxicity. However, local toxicity like oedema, blistering, nerve damage and(More)
The BRAF inhibitors vemurafenib and dabrafenib can be used to treat patients with metastatic melanomas harboring BRAFV600 mutations. Initial antitumoral responses are often seen, but drug-resistant clones with reactivation of the MEK-ERK pathway soon appear. Recently, the secretome of tumor-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) has been ascribed important(More)

The Authors’ contributions and Competing interests section modified accordingly. We are publishing this erratum to update the author list, which is as follows: Roger Olofsson, Lars Ny, Charlotta(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated hepatic perfusion (IHP) is a treatment option for patients with liver metastases. Previous studies have found that liver toxicity is one of the limiting factors, and in an attempt to reduce the toxicity a buffering agent was added to the perfusate. The aim was to retrospectively analyze if this buffering reduced toxicity and complication(More)
