  • CHICAGO- The addition of selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) to standard chemotherapy failed to improve overall progression-free survival as first-line treatment of patients with non-resectable colorectal cancer liver metastases, according to research presented at the 2015 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting in Chicago, IL. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • The addition of SIRT, using Y-90 resin microspheres, to FOLFOX-based first-line chemotherapy in patients with liver-dominant metastases did not improve overall progression-free survival," said principal investigator Peter Gibbs, MBBS, MD, FRACP, of The Royal Melbourne Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.

  • Therefore, clinical benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy was associated with ERCC1 negativity as measured by overall survival (test for interaction, P = 0.034) and by disease-free survival (test for interaction, P = 0.20). (biomedcentral.com)
  • steadily
  • The survival rates for more advanced stages have been steadily increasing as well, due primarily to the availability of more effective treatment options and an increasingly better understanding of the disease as time goes on. (moffitt.org)
  • Distant
  • These include the disease-free survival (DFS) (the period after curative treatment [disease eliminated] when no disease can be detected), the progression-free survival (PFS) (the period after treatment when disease [which could not be eliminated] remains stable, that is, does not progress), and the metastasis-free survival (MFS) or distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS) (the period until metastasis is detected).

  • higher
  • For example, most studies suggest that the cure rate for acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), a subtype of AML, is now higher than 80%, but rates are lower for some other subtypes of AML. (cancer.org)
  • With newer, more effective medicines developed for CML in recent years, survival rates are likely to be higher now, although these new drugs have not been in use long enough to be sure. (cancer.org)

  • Typically taking months or years to progress, the cells are produced at a much higher rate than normal, resulting in many abnormal white blood cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • statistics
  • According to figures published by the Office for National Statistics, areas with statistically low survival rates, such as Barking in London and Medway in Kent, are now closing in or have caught up with the average recovery rates. (telegraph.co.uk)
  • Some people may want to know the survival statistics for people in similar situations, while others might not find the numbers helpful, or might even not want to know them. (cancer.org)
  • time
  • Survival rates can give you an idea of what percentage of people with the same type and stage of cancer are still alive a certain amount of time (usually 5 years) after they were diagnosed. (cancer.org)
  • For chronic leukemias, which are rare in children, 5-year survival rates are less helpful, because some children may live for a long time with the leukemia without actually being cured. (cancer.org)

  • C ancer survival rates are at the highest ever with more than 2,000 more people recovering from the disease this year able to enjoy Christmas with their families. (telegraph.co.uk)
  • cause specific survival has the advantage that it does not depend on the ability to find a similar population of people without the disease. (wikipedia.org)
