4. Phase I/II trial of multicycle high-dose chemotherapy with peripheral blood stem cell support for treatment of advanced ovarian cancer.
Match Strength: 2.690
Ovarian cancer is chemosensitive, but most patients with advanced disease die from tumor progression. As 25% of the patients can be cured by chemotherapy, it is reasonable to evaluate high-dose chemotherapy (HDCT). Forty-eight patients with untreated ovarian cancer were entered in a multicenter phase I/II trial of multicycle HDCT. Median age was 46 (19-59 years); International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics-stage was III in 79% and IV in 21%; 31% had residual disease >1 cm after surgery. Two courses of induction/mobilization therapy with cyclophosphamide (250 mg/m2) and paclitaxel ... Read More »

5. Technology assessment and knowledge brokering: the case of assisted reproduction in The Netherlands.
Match Strength: 2.661
OBJECTIVES: Even when policy makers show interest and evidence-informed and convincing HTA studies are available, use of assessment products is not guaranteed. In this article, we report our experience with knowledge brokering to foster evidence-informed policy making on cost-effective treatment and reimbursement of assisted reproduction in The Netherlands. METHODS: From earlier work in the field of knowledge brokering, we foresaw the need for a deliberative strategy to manage the inherent tension between scientific rigor demanded by researchers and responsiveness to real-time needs demanded ...

6. The activated nerve growth factor receptor p-TrkA is selectively expressed in advanced-stage ovarian carcinoma.
Match Strength: 2.570
The objective of this study was to compare the expression of the nerve growth factor (NGF) receptors TrkA and p75 in ovarian borderline tumors, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage I carcinomas and advanced-stage (FIGO stage III-IV) carcinomas, and to assess a possible association between NGF receptor expression and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation in borderline tumors and FIGO stage I carcinomas. Sections from 119 borderline tumors, 57 FIGO stage I invasive ovarian carcinomas, and 56 advanced-stage carcinomas were evaluated for expression of ... Read More »

7. Regulated upon activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) and monocyte chemotactic protein 1 in follicular fluid accumulate differentially in patients with and without endometriosis undergoing in vitro fertilization.
Match Strength: 2.562
OBJECTIVE: To compare the amount of regulated upon activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) and monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1) in follicular fluid (FF) of patients with and without endometriosis and to determine their oocyte fertilization and pregnancy rates. DESIGN: Case-control study. SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Luebeck, Germany. PATIENT(S): Thirty-two women with endometriosis stages I-IV and 28 women without endometriosis, both groups surgically and histologically confirmed. INTERVENTION(S): ... Read More »

8. Radiochemotherapy combined with regional pelvic hyperthermia induces high response and resectability rates in patients with nonresectable cervical cancer >/=FIGO IIB "bulky".
Match Strength: 2.388
Purpose: To evaluate preoperative radiochemotherapy combined with regional pelvic hyperthermia in patients with nonresectable cervical cancer >/= International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) IIB "bulky" in a Phase II study. Methods and Materials: Thirty-two patients with nonresectable FIGO IIB-IVA cervical cancer confined to the pelvis were treated with radiochemotherapy (5 x 1.8 Gy/wk, 45-50.4 Gy; cisplatin, 40 mg/m(2)/wk) and weekly regional pelvic hyperthermia (SIGMA-60 applicator, system BSD-2000; BSD Medical Corp., Salt Lake City, UT). Responders underwent hysterectomy ... Read More »
