Until now, targeted therapies against metastatic kidney cancer should be administered continuously. Even when no tumor cell was not detectable, the patient should continue treatment to prevent recurrences. The deal may be, is changing. A team from the Institut Gustave Roussy (IGR) in Villejuif, has evaluated the interest to discontinue treatment in patients in remission total. .
Drs Laurence Bernard Escudier Albiges and were interested in the case of complete remission in patients with metastatic kidney cancer. All were receiving treatment was based on inhibitors of tyrosine kinase, which interrupt the blood supply of the tumor. These anti-angiogenic drugs inhibit the formation of neo-vessels essential to tumor proliferation. They starve, in a sense, the cancer cells.
Among the patients followed by the team of the TMF, 28 were treated with targeted therapies alone, while 25 others have benefited more, a local treatment. All being in total remission, their treatments were interrupted. After a median duration of 255 days (nearly 9 months), 61 % of patients in the first group were still in remission total. This means that the tumor had completely disappeared without recurrence, said Dr. Escudier. In the second group, only 48 % of patients were in this case. Read the rest of this entry »

But was sorely lacking in these processes, can be more intuitive than scientific, rigorous evaluation of their effectiveness. This is now done: telephone assistance doubles the chances of success! Services telephone Service assistance to the stop tobacco are animated by tele-operators answering calls free of smokers motivated or finding motivation to break away from tobacco. Remained to prove their effectiveness. In carrying out this work, 3,282 participants were recruited during an initial and a period of 16 months. Randomly assigned into two groups, some were immediately directed to a counselor (group A), while others had to recall a few days after receiving information materials and cessation assistance to be directed to a counselor (group B). subjects in group B were therefore failing to remind the control group (group B2). .
