BACKGROUND We evaluated the association between polymorphisms of cytochrome P450 2A6 (CYP2A6)/excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1)/X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1(XRCC1) and treatment outcomes of metastatic gastric cancer (MGC) patients treated with S-1/cisplatin. METHODS Among MGC patients (n=108), who received S-1 (40 mg m(-2)(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of S-1/irinotecan/oxaliplatin (TIROX) in metastatic gastric cancer (MGC) and the association between treatment outcome and uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A polymorphisms. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with previously untreated MGC received S-1 40 mg/m(2) b.i.d.(More)
BACKGROUND S-1 is an oral fluoropyrimidine that mimics infusional 5-fluorouracil. The aim of this phase II trial was to explore the clinical efficacy of the triplet regimen TIROX, which consists of S-1, irinotecan and oxaliplatin. METHODS Forty-two chemo-naive patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) were planned to be enrolled and be treated(More)

However, it is unclear whether NMOSD patients under immunosuppression therapy show proper antibody formation after vaccination.(More)
Several tumour sites have now demonstrated objective responses to alpha interferons in a diversity of doses and schedules. Since effectiveness should be enhanced with the identification of an optimal dose strategy, we undertook a prospectively randomized study to compare an intermittent high dose escalating strategy (HDS) vs. a fixed low dose treatment in(More)
