Adjuvant Chemotherapy with Chinese Herbal Medicine Formulas Versus Placebo in Patients with Lung Adenocarcinoma after Radical Surgery: a Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial.

Conclusion: For patients with LAC, ACT combined with CHMF after radical surgery can prolong the DFS time especially in the early stage, and reduces the chemotherapy-related toxic and side effects. Trial Registration: NCT01441752. Registered 14 July, 2011. PMID: 32140080 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: In summary, there is no evidence of a demonstrable overall survival benefit with the addition of anti-EGFR therapy in first-line and recurrent glioblastomas. Newer drugs that are specially designed for glioblastoma targets may raise the possibility of success in this population, but data are lacking at present. Future studies should be more selective in pursuing people displaying specific EGFR targets. PMID: 32395825 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: This study showed bevacizumab combined with chemotherapy could effectively control intracranial lesions, relieve symptoms, and improve the quality of life and survival of patients with brain metastases from lung adenocarcinoma. Serum baseline VEGF may be a predictor of efficacy of bevacizumab plus chemotherapy in the treatment of brain metastases from lung adenocarcinoma. PMID: 31903262 [PubMed]

ConclusionA very difficult case of grade V immune-related thrombocytopenia after the administration of nivolumab as second-line therapy for relapsed lung adenocarcinoma was described. Immune-related thrombocytopenia is a rare adverse event, but it must be considered a possible complication because it may become critical once it has occurred.

Abstract LESSONS LEARNED: The biweekly GEM plus CBDCA dose and schedule showed satisfactory efficacy with mild toxicities in elderly patients with advanced NSCLC.The biweekly GEM plus CBDCA regimen could be considered an alternative to the 3-week regimen in NSCLC. BACKGROUND: The gemcitabine (GEM)-carboplatin (CBDCA) combination is widely used for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and has some efficacy in elderly patients; however, a high incidence of thrombocytopenia is observed, and the optimal dosage and administration schedules are unknown. This multicenter phase II trial evaluated the efficacy and toler...

ConclusionsThe MTD/RPTD of GD is gemcitabine 1000  mg/m2 weekly for 3 of 4 weeks and dasatinib 50  mg PO BID. The clinical activity of GD seen in this study was modest, and does not support its further investigation in pancreatic cancer.

AbstractOxaliplatin, a third-generation platinum agent, has been used for the treatment of colon, pancreatic, and stomach cancers in recent years. It carries a reduced risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) compared to the previous platinum agents, including cisplatin and carboplatin. Several cases of oxaliplatin-induced acute tubular necrosis (ATN) have been reported; however, only one case has been reported as acute tubulointerstitial nephritis (ATIN) histopathologically. Here, we present a case of biopsy-proven and dialysis-dependent ATIN, which dramatically resolved with steroid therapy. The patient was a 67-year-old male w...
