Triple-negative breast cancers(TNBCs)are associated with early recurrence after surgery and unfavorable prognoses. To date, no effective therapies for TNBCs have been established. The present study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy(ACT)for 111 TNBCs using a retrospective multivariate analysis(MVA). The intravenous(iv)ACTs included docetaxel, epirubicin, gemcitabine, and vinorelbine. The oral ACTs included UFT, doxifluridine, and cyclophosphamide. The 10-year disease-free survival(DFS)and overall survival(OS)rates were 77...

Postoperative chemotherapy was initially conducted with surgical treatment as part of a multimodal treatment strategy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Subsequently, a randomized trial comparing post- versus pre-operative chemotherapy with cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil demonstrated the superior efficacy of neoadjuvant treatment with FP(CF). However, the results of subgroup analysis based on T factor revealed no efficacy for cT3 tumors. To improve the survival rate in patients with cT3 tumors, treatments with neoadjuvant chemotherapy using FP(CF)plus docetaxel and concurrent FP(CF)plus radiation were conducted to assess the feasibility of preoperative adjuvant treatment and surgery after neoadjuvant treatment...

BACKGROUND: Both abiraterone acetate (AA) and enzalutamide are promising agents for patients with pre- and post-chemotherapy metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Several retrospective analysis suggested clinical cross-resistance between these agents in patients previously treated with docetaxel. However, data on the antitumor activity of AA as a second androgen receptor-targeting new agent after the failure of enzalutamide in chemotherapy-naive mCRPC patients is unavailable...

Despite the significant survival benefit of taxane therapy in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), all patients inevitably develop treatment resistance. An understanding of resistance mechanisms has led to new therapies for prostate cancer (cabazitaxel, abiraterone and enzalutamide), all of which have improved survival following first-line docetaxel. Another treatment, currently in development, targets the prosurvival molecule clusterin. Custirsen, an antisense molecule that inhibits clusterin production, has shown promise in combination with docetaxel in mCRPC patients at risk for poor outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Despite palliative benefits and PSA responses, the objective clinical impact of daily oral prednisone (P) for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) is unknown. We performed a pooled analysis of control arms of randomized trials that either did or did not administer single-agent P to evaluate its impact on overall survival (OS) and toxicities. METHODS: Individual patient data from control arms of randomized trials of men with mCRPC who received placebo or P+placebo post docetaxel were eligible for analysis...

The aims of this study were to report the clinical outcomes in a cohort of men with high-risk prostate cancer treated with neoadjuvant docetaxel and mitoxantrone 10 years after treatment, identify pretreatment clinical parameters that may be predictors of recurrence, and describe tumor-infiltrating leukocytes present in radical prostatectomy specimens. We conducted a phase I/II study of neoadjuvant docetaxel and mitoxantrone before radical prostatectomy in high-risk localized prostate cancer to determine the feasibility of this combination and predictors of prostate cancer recurrence after cytotoxic chemotherapy...

OBJECTIVES: Prostate cancer (PCa) is a common malignancy worldwide. Docetaxel has been an important treatment option for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). However, nearly all patients with CRPC treated with docetaxel eventually become refractory. In the present study, we analyzed the expression and distribution of kinesin family member C1 (KIFC1) in human PCa by immunohistochemistry and examined the effect of inhibiting KIFC1 expression on docetaxel resistance...

PURPOSE: Neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NAC) is currently used in the treatment of stage II/III breast cancer. Pathological complete response as a surrogate endpoint for clinical outcomes is not completely validated for all subgroups of breast cancers. Therefore, there is a need for reliable predictive tests of the most effective treatment. METHODS: We used a combination of predictive clinical, pathological, and gene expression-based markers of response to NAC in a prospective phase II multicentre randomized clinical trial in breast cancer patients, with a long follow-up (8 years)...

BACKGROUND: Anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy is a promising clinical treatment for nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, whether anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy can provide added benefits for heavily pretreated patients with advanced NSCLC and whether the efficacy of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy relates to the tumor PD-L1 expression level remain controversial. Thus, this meta-analysis evaluated the efficacy and safety of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy for pretreated patients with advanced NSCLC...

OBJECTIVES: This analysis aimed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of pembrolizumab compared with docetaxel in patients with previously treated advanced non-squamous cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with PD-L1 positive tumors (total proportion score [TPS] ≥ 50%). The analysis was conducted from a US third-party payer perspective. METHODS: A partitioned-survival model was developed using data from patients from the KEYNOTE 010 clinical trial. The model used Kaplan-Meier (KM) estimates of progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) from the trial for patients treated with either pembrolizumab 2 mg/kg or docetaxel 75 mg/m(2) with extrapolation based on fitted parametric functions and long-term registry data...

The last 2 years (2014 and 2015) have witnessed major advances in the treatment of genitourinary malignancies. Of note and in marked contrast to previous years, all four major cancers (prostate cancer, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and bladder cancer) have benefited from this progress. In prostate cancer, it was clearly demonstrated that a local treatment should be administered for high-risk localised disease. The standard of care was changed for patients with upfront metastatic disease with combined androgen deprivation therapy plus docetaxel becoming the new standard for fit patients with multiple bony metastases...
