  1. Lenalidomide is effective and safe for the treatment of patients with relapsed multiple myeloma and very severe renal impairment.

    João, C; Freitas, J; Gomes, F; Geraldes, C; Coelho, I; Neves, M; Lúcio, P; Esteves, S; Esteves, G
    Patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and severe renal impairment (SRI) have shorter survival than MM patients without renal failure. Although lenalidomide is a highly active drug, this immunomodulatory agent is frequently neglected in this context due to its predominant renal clearance and, consequently, an increased risk of toxicity. This risk might be overcome with the proper lenalidomide dose adjustment to renal function. This study evaluates the outcomes of 23 relapsed MM patients with SRI (baseline creatinine clearance (CrCl) <30 mL/min) treated with lenalidomide-dexamethasone (LenDex), including 56 % (13 patients) under hemodialysis. The median CrCl at start of LenDex was 19...

  2. Early tumour response as a survival predictor in previously- treated patients receiving triplet hepatic artery infusion and intravenous cetuximab for unresectable liver metastases from wild-type KRAS colorectal cancer.

    Bouchahda, M; Boige, V; Smith, D; Karaboué, A; Ducreux, M; Hebbar, M; Lepére, C; Focan, C; Guimbaud, R; Innominato, P; Awad, S; Carvalho, C; Tumolo, S, et al.
    BACKGROUND: Surgery for colorectal liver metastases results in an overall survival of about 40% at 5 years. Progression-free survival is increased with the addition of oxaliplatin and fluorouracil chemotherapy. The addition of cetuximab to these chemotherapy regimens results in an overall survival advantage in patients with advanced disease who have the KRAS exon 2 wild-type tumour genotype. We aimed to assess the benefit of addition of cetuximab to standard chemotherapy in patients with resectable colorectal liver metastasis. METHODS: Patients with KRAS exon 2 wild-type resectable or suboptimally resectable colorectal liver metastases were randomised in a 1:1 ratio to receive chemotherapy with or...

  3. Fatigue and weight loss predict survival on circadian chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer

    Innominato, PF; Giacchetti, S; Moreau, T; Bjarnason, GA; Smaaland, R; Focan, C; Garufi, C; Iacobelli, S; Tampellini, M; Tumolo, S; Carvalho, C; Karaboué, A; Poncet, A; Spiegel, D; Lévi, F; International Association for Research on Time in Biology and Chronotherapy (ARTBC) Chronotherapy Group.
    BACKGROUND:Chemotherapy-induced neutropenia has been associated with prolonged survival selectively in patients on a conventional schedule (combined 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin [FOLFOX2]) but not on a chronomodulated schedule of the same drugs administered at specific circadian times (chronoFLO4). The authors hypothesized that the early occurrence of chemotherapy-induced symptoms correlated with circadian disruption would selectively hinder the efficacy of chronotherapy. METHODS:Fatigue and weight loss (FWL) were considered to be associated with circadian disruption based on previous data. Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (n = 543) from an international phase 3 trial comparing FOLFOX2 with chronoFLO4 were categorized into 4 subgroups according to the occurrence of...

  4. Administração subcutânea de bortezomib: evolução no tratamento do mieloma múltiplo: a experiência do HFF

    Santos, R; Gomes, F
    Introdução: O Mieloma Múltiplo representa 1% das neoplasias malignas humanas. Na última década as novas terapêu- ticas tiveram relevante impacto no aumento da sobrevivência. O bortezomib constitui uma das novas opções de tratamento, no entanto as neuropatias constituem as toxicidades limitantes de dose e podem impedir a optimização dos resultados. A administração subcutânea (SC) de bortezomib, foi aprovada pela European Medicines Agency (EMA) em Setembro de 2012 e constitui uma das estratégias para reduzir a incidência de neuropatias (NP) em relação à administração endovenosa tradi- cional. É usado no Hospital Fernando Fonseca (HFF) desde Fevereiro de 2012 após aprovação institucional. Material e Métodos:...

  6. Neutropenia febril

    Atalaia, G; Vasconcelos, P; Bragança, N
    O desenvolvimento de febre no doente com neutropenia induzida por quimioterapia mantém-se uma situação clinica muito desafiante na área oncológica. Apesar da evolução contínua na prevenção de infeção, a neutropenia febril mantém-se como uma complicação frequente em doentes oncológicos sob quimioterapia. Esta síndrome é considerada uma emergência médica e deverá merecer atenção clínica imediata para avaliação e admi- nistração de antibioterapia empírica e de largo espetro. A evolução no tratamento de suporte reduziu a sua mortalidade, no entanto, esta patologia mantém-se como uma causa importante de morbilidade, mortalidade e custos no doente oncológico. O sucesso no tratamento requer uma rápida avaliação e reconhecimento...

  7. Phase III trial comparing 4-day chronomodulated therapy delivery of fluorouracil, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin as first-line chemotherapy of metastatic colorectal cancer: the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Chronotherapy Group

    Giacchetti, S; Bjarnason, G; Garufi, C; Genet, D; Iacobelli, S; Tampellini, M; Smaaland, R; Focan, C; Coudert, B; Humblet, Y; Canon, J; Adenis, A; Lo Re, G; Carvalho, C; Schueller, J; Anciaux, N; Lentz, MA; Baron, B; Gorlia, T; Lévi, F
    Purpose: In two previous randomized trials, the adjustment of chemotherapy delivery to circadian rhythms improved tolerability and anticancer activity compared with constant-rate infusion during 5 days in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Patients and Methods: For this multicenter randomized trial, it was hypothesized that a chronomodulated infusion of fluorouracil, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin for 4 days (chronoFLO4) would improve survival by 10% compared with conventional 2-day delivery of the same drugs (FOLFOX2). Patients were treated every 2 weeks with intrapatient dose escalation. Results: Baseline characteristics were similar in both arms for the 564 patients (36 institutions, 10 countries). Median survival was 19.6 months (95%...
