BACKGROUND In previous clinical trials of patients with metastatic renal-cell carcinoma, patients treated with axitinib as second-line therapy had longer median progression-free survival than those treated with sorafenib. We therefore undertook a phase 3 trial comparing axitinib with sorafenib in patients with treatment-naive metastatic renal-cell(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess in a phase 3a trial the efficacy of solifenacin succinate, a once-daily oral antimuscarinic agent in development at 5-mg and 10-mg dosage strengths, for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) (Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd, Tokyo, Japan) compared with placebo in patients with symptoms of OAB, i.e. urgency, incontinence, and(More)
PURPOSE We investigated improvements in overactive bladder and patient reported outcomes in patients with overactive bladder and refractory incontinence treated with mirabegron 50 mg plus solifenacin 5 mg vs solifenacin 5 or 10 mg. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with overactive bladder who were incontinent despite 4 weeks of single-blind daily solifenacin(More)
BACKGROUND In a randomized phase III trial in treatment-naive patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC), axitinib versus sorafenib yielded numerically longer progression-free survival (median, 10.1 vs. 6.5 months; hazard ratio [HR], 0.77; 1-sided P = .038) and significantly higher objective response rate (32% vs. 15%; 1-sided P = .0006).

LBA348 Background: In the phase III AXIS trial, second-line therapy with axitinib resulted in significantly longer progression-free survival (PFS) versus sorafenib for mRCC. We conducted a multicenter, randomized, open-label, phase III trial to compare PFS of axitinib vs sorafenib as first-line therapy. METHODS Patients with untreated, measurable (RECIST(More)
Previous studies in hereditary and sporadic prostate cancer have indicated the existence of a tumor suppressor gene in chromosomal region 19p13. The BRG1 gene in this region is one of the possible candidates, based on both the frequency of inactivating mutations in human cancer cell lines, including the prostate cancer cell line DU145, and its functional(More)
Combined treatment including alpha-1a-adrenoreceptor blocker tamsulosine was given to 92 patients with chronic prostatitis having marked urination disorders (IPSS score 12.1 +/- 2.4). The response was achieved in 98.9% of cases. There was attenuation of the urination symptoms, speeding up of the maximal urine flow, decreased amount of the residual urine. It(More)
An in vitro study was conducted to measure the pressure distributions in knitted polyester axillobifemoral bypass grafts under steady and pulsatile flow of a Newtonian fluid. The relationship between pressure drop and flowrate was determined across the outflow branches of two types of axillobifemoral grafts. Pressure losses were greater across the 90(More)
Prostatilen (5 mg/day i.m. for 5 days) was given to 46 patients with chronic pyelonephritis in the latent inflammation phase. The treatment resulted in relief of clinical symptoms, positive trend in laboratory indices characterizing activity of renal inflammation, albumin-globulin ratio. There was a decrease in leukocyturia, bacteriuria, ESR, blood(More)
