PURPOSE Metastatic colorectal cancer patients with low epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene copy number are unlikely to respond to anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatment. The objective of this study was to investigate EGFR fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) patterns of chromosome 7 disomy with efficacy of cetuximab therapy in(More)
PURPOSE To determine the appropriate radiologic criteria of metastatic retropharyngeal lymph nodes (RLNs) in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS After institutional review board approval and informed consent, 303 consecutive NPC patients treated with definitive radiation therapy were examined after completion of therapy.(More)
PURPOSE Small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) is a rare malignancy, and most patients present with unresectable or metastatic disease. Thus far, no standard chemotherapeutic regimen has been established and related data are scarce, especially in Eastern countries. The purpose of this multicenter study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of oxaliplatin(More)
PURPOSE Cisplatin combined with 5-fluorouracil (5-Fu) is widely used in the management of advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). However, catheters and pumps are necessary for the continuous infusion of 5-Fu, which add to the cost, immobility and inconvenience of treatment. Capecitabine, an oral fluoropyrimidine, is a potentially more active and more(More)
To evaluate the prognostic value of maximum primary tumor diameter (MPTD) in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Three hundred and thirty-three consecutive, newly-diagnosed NPC patients were retrospectively reviewed. Kaplan-Meier analysis and the log-rank test were used to estimate overall survival (OS), failure-free survival (FFS), distant metastasis-free(More)
To observe the primary tumor (PT) regression speed after radiotherapy (RT) in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and evaluate its prognostic significance. One hundred and eighty-eight consecutive newly diagnosed NPC patients were reviewed retrospectively. All patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging and fiberscope examination of the nasopharynx before RT,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cisplatin is the most common chemotherapeutic agent for loco-regionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC); however, toxicity is a limiting factor for some patients. We retrospectively compared the efficacy and toxicity of weekly docetaxel-based and cisplatin-based concurrent chemoradiotherapy in loco-regionally advanced NPC. (More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy, time to disease progression (TTP), overall survival (OS) and toxicity of FOLFOX6 and TLF regimens for advanced gastric cancer. METHODS The clinical data of 81 chemotherapy-naive patients with advanced gastric cancer were analyzed. Of the 81 patients, 41 were treated with FOLFOX6 regimen and 40 with TLF regimen. The(More)
