Colorectal peritoneal carcinomatosis (CRPC) is a common systemic metastasis of intra-abdominal cancers. Intraperitoneal chemotherapy against CRPC is at present the preferred treatment. The aim of this study is to develop a novel hydrogel drug delivery system through the combination of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) loaded polymeric micelles and cisplatin (DDP) in biodegradable thermosensitive chitosan (CS) hydrogel. The prepared CS hydrogel drug is a free-flowing solution at room temperature and forms a stationary gel at body temperature...

BACKGROUND: The bone scan index (BSI), which is obtained using a computer-aided bone scan evaluation system, is anticipated to become an objective and quantitative clinical tool for evaluating bone metastases in prostate cancer. Here, we assessed the usefulness of the BSI as a prognostic factor in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) treated using docetaxel. METHODS: We analyzed 41 patients who received docetaxel for mCRPC. The Bonenavi system was used as the calculation program for the BSI...

PURPOSE: To investigate predictors of progression to castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and cancer-specific mortality (CSM) in patients with metastatic prostate cancer (mPCa). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 440 consecutive treatment-naïve patients initially diagnosed with mPCa between August 2000 and June 2012. Patient age, body mass index (BMI), Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen (PSA), PSA nadir, American Joint Committee on Cancer stage, Visual Analogue Scale pain score, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance score (ECOG PS), PSA response to hormone therapy, and metastatic sites were assessed...

INTRODUCTION: Androgen signaling axis (ASA) continues to play a crucial role in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). One of the proposed mechanisms is the activation of ASA by adrenal and intratumoral androgens. Targeted therapy to deplete such androgen sources should be effective in treating men with CRPC. AREAS COVERED: Abiraterone acetate (AA) is a selective irreversible inhibitor of CYP 17. It is orally administered and is converted to its active metabolite abiraterone by the liver...

BACKGROUND: Although a randomized trial demonstrated a survival benefit of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC) over systemic chemotherapy alone, the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis from colorectal cancer (CRPC) is still a matter of debate. The aims of this study were to evaluate long-term outcome after CRS and IPC and to identify the prognostic factors associated with a cure. METHODS: Patients were considered cured if the disease-free survival interval lasted at least 5 years after the treatment of CRPC or its last recurrence...

PURPOSE: 2ME2 (Panzem®) is a non-estrogenic derivative of estradiol with antiproliferative and antiangiogenic activity. Preclinical data support antitumor activity in prostate cancer. This trial evaluated the efficacy of 2ME2 NCD in patients with taxane-refractory, metastatic CRPC. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Patients with metastatic CRPC who had progressed on only one prior taxane-based regimen were eligible. All patients received 2ME2 NCD at 1,500 mg orally four times daily, repeated in 28 day cycles...

BACKGROUND: Hepatectomy is the standard of care for patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) but cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (PIC) are still not widely accepted as the definitive treatment for patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis of colorectal origin (CRPC). We analyzed our data to compare survival outcomes for patients in these two groups who achieved optimal resection. METHODS: We examined our prospectively collected database for CRLM and CRPC patients who underwent hepatectomy or peritonectomy from 1995 to 2008...

BACKGROUND: The objective of the present meta-analysis was to analyze the survival outcomes of patients with colorectal peritoneal carcinomatosis (CRPC), with particular focus on cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (PIC). METHODS: A search was conducted on Medline from 1950 to February 2009 and Pubmed from 1950 to February 2009 for original studies on CRS with PIC. All articles included in this study were assessed with the application of predetermined selection criteria...

PURPOSE: We determined the safety and efficacy of sorafenib in patients with castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). METHODS: Sixty-four chemotherapy and radiotherapy naïve patients with CRPC received 400 mg sorafenib orally twice daily in 6-week cycles. All patients had bone metastasis, while 16 had lymph node-, 9 had liver-, and 10 had lung metastases. Treatment was continued until disease progression or excessive toxicity. RESULTS: All patients were assessable for response...
