• NSCLC
  • The objective of this study is to describe the threshold of perception and recognition of basic tastes in patients with NSCLC before treatment with platin and paclitaxel-based chemotherapy and after the second cycle, and analyze the effect in the developement of dysgeusia, as well as the association between these and the nutritional status and quality of life.

  • doses
  • Antibody levels against hepatitis B, rubella, measles and mumps vaccine antigens were evaluated in 33 children after completing chemotherapy (before and after vaccine booster doses) and the results were compared to the data of 33 healthy children matched for gender, age and social class.

  • METHODS
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Forty-four chemotherapy-na├»ve patients with Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status 0 or 1, of whom 80% had metastatic disease and two thirds had poorly differentiated gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma, were enrolled. (mendeley.com)
  • METHODS: In this study, we compared the number of CTC in both 7.5 ml central venous blood (CVB) and 7.5 ml peripheral venous blood (PVB) from 30 patients with MBC starting with a new line of chemotherapy. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Cells
  • Insulin receptor substrate 1 expression enhances the sensitivity of 32D cells to chemotherapy-induced cell death. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Many of the side effects of chemotherapy can be traced to damage to normal cells that divide rapidly and are thus sensitive to anti-mitotic drugs: cells in the bone marrow, digestive tract and hair follicles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of the effect on immune cells (especially lymphocytes), chemotherapy drugs often find use in a host of diseases that result from harmful overactivity of the immune system against self (so-called autoimmunity). (wikipedia.org)
  • These micrometastases can be treated with adjuvant chemotherapy and can reduce relapse rates caused by these disseminated cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • agents
  • In this setting, it is often combined with other agents, such as: Cyclophosphamide (FLAMSA-CYC), and/or Busulfan or treosulfan (FLAMSA-BU or FLAMSA-TREO), and/or Melphalan (FLAMSA-MEL), and/or Total body irradiation, given shortly after the end of FLAMSA to prepare the patient for transplant.

  • patients
  • After chemotherapy, 75.9%, 67.9%, 59.3% and 51.7% of the patients showed low antibody titers that would be unlikely to protect against exposure to measles, rubella, hepatitis B and mumps, respectively. (scielo.br)
  • In the two protocols 4455 patients were randomized and 2477 were registered off-study. (biomedsearch.com)
  • lower
  • INTERPRETATION: Although our data show that infants exposed to chemotherapy in utero had a lower birthweight at gestational age than did those who were unexposed, and had more complications, these differences were not clinically significant and, since none of the infants was exposed to chemotherapy in the first trimester, were most likely related to premature delivery.

  • drugs
  • Chemotherapy may be given with a curative intent (which almost always involves combinations of drugs), or it may aim to prolong life or to reduce symptoms (palliative chemotherapy). (wikipedia.org)
  • 5'-Aminothymidine, a non-toxic analogue of thymidine, interferes with this regulatory mechanism and thereby increases the cytotoxicity of thymidine analogues used as antineoplastic drugs. (wikipedia.org)
