Simplified/Same Day(s)-GOLF as First-line Treatment of Metastatic Carcinoma of Unknown Primary (CUP), Suggestive of Pancreatobiliary Tumors. JOP. 2019 Nov;20(5):121-124 Authors: Saif MW, Wasif K, Goodman MD, Hegde S, Sterling M, Yacavone R, Jaiswal S, Weinstein B, Daly K, Relias V Abstract Background: Carcinoma of unknown primary represents a therapeutic challenge in oncological practice. Evidence lacks to support particular chemotherapy selection and empirical therapies are commonly extrapolated from data on patients where primary tumor site is known. Gemcitabine, Oxaliplatin, Leucovorin and 5-Fluorouracil was previously developed to treat pancreatic cancer. These agents have also demonstrated activities in other gastrointestinal malignancies. Considering promising anti-tumor effects of GOLF, we performed a retrospective study to investigate anti-tumor activity and safety of a simplified Gemcitabine, Oxaliplatin, Leucovorin and 5-Fluorouracil in patients with Carcinoma of unknown primary in whom immunohistostaining was suggestive of either upper gastrointestinal cancers or pancreatobiliary cancers. Methods: This retrospective study included 18 patients recorded to have a diagnosis of Carcinoma of unknown primary between Aug 2010-Dec 2015, who received biweekly G 1000 mg/m2, O 85 mg/m2, L 200 mg/m2 and F 2400 mg/m2 over 46-h on day 1 with pegfilgrastim on day 3 every 14 days. IHC staining pattern favored upper GI origin, including stomach, bile duct o...

In this study, five machine learning algorithms and twelve types of molecular fingerprints were employed to generate QSAR discriminant models for mitochondrial toxicity. A threshold moving method was adopted to resolve the imbalance issue in the training data. Consensus of the models by an averaging probability strategy improved prediction performance. The best model has correct classification rates of 81.8% and 88.3% in ten-fold cross validation and external validation, respectively. Substructures such as phenol, carboxylic acid, nitro and arylchloride were found informative through analysis of information gain and freque...

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of LLV on HCC development, mortality, and cirrhotic complications among patients according to their adherence to entecavir (ETV) treatment. Methods: We performed a retrospective observational analysis of data from 894 consecutive adult patients with treatment-naïve CHB undergoing ETV treatment. LLV was defined according to either persistent or intermittent episodes of
