To predict precisely severe toxicity of irinotecan, we evaluated the association of UGT1A variants, haplotypes and the combination of UGT1A genotypes to severe toxicity of irinotecan. UGT1A1*6 (211G>A), UGT1A1*28 (TA6>TA7), UGT1A1*60 (-3279T>G), UGT1A7 (387T>G), UGT1A7 (622T>C), and UGT1A9*1b (-118T9>T10, also named *22) were genotyped in 123 patients with(More)
UNLABELLED Retrospective studies have suggested that UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT)1A1, UGT1A7, and UGT1A9 predict severe toxicity and efficacy of irinotecan-containing regimens. We prospectively evaluated the impact of UGT1A genotypes and haplotypes on severe toxicity and efficacy in patients treated with fluorouracil, leucovorin, and irinotecan(More)
AIM We performed a phase II study of irinotecan with 5'-deoxy-5-fluorouridine (5'-DFUR) for metastatic colorectal cancer based on UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A1 polymorphism. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 28 patients were enrolled. The dose of irinotecan was 150 mg/m(2) for patients with the *1/*1 wild-type genotype, and 70 mg/m(2) for those with(More)
Various vaccine treatments against metastatic colorectal cancer have been developed and applied. However, to improve the efficacy of immunotherapy, biomarkers that can predict the effects are needed. It has been reported that various microRNAs (miRNAs) in peripheral blood may be useful as non-invasive biomarkers. In this study, miRNAs influencing the(More)
We previously conducted a phase I trial for advanced colorectal cancer (CRC) using five HLA-A*2402-restricted peptides, three derived from oncoantigens and two from vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors, and confirmed safety and immunological responses. To evaluate clinical benefits of cancer vaccination treatment, we conducted a phase II(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported a phase I study of a cancer vaccine using five novel HLA-A*2402-restricted peptides, and demonstrated the safety and the promising potential of our five-peptide cocktail for advanced colorectal cancer. The objective of this analysis was to investigate predictive biomarkers for the prior selection of patients who are likely(More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been studied for their self-renewal capacity and pluripotency, as well as their resistance to anticancer therapy and their ability to metastasize to distant organs. CSCs are difficult to study because their population is quite low in tumor specimens. To overcome this problem, we established a culture method to induce a(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to explore novel biomarkers that can predict the clinical outcome of patients before treatment or during vaccination. These would be useful for the selection of appropriate patients who would be expected to exhibit better treatment outcomes from vaccination, and for facilitating the development of cancer(More)
We previously reported a phase II study of a cancer vaccine using five novel peptides recognized by HLA-A*2402-restricted CTL in combination with oxaliplatin-containing chemotherapy (FXV study) as first-line therapy for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and demonstrated the safety and promising potential of our five-peptide cocktail. The objective(More)
AIM This study aimed to investigate the relationship between prognosis after curative hepatectomy and serum methylation signature (SMS), defined by methylation levels of six specific genes (cyclin D2, Ras association (RalGDS/AF-6) domain family member 1, serine peptidase inhibitor Kunitz type 2, cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator, brain(More)
