A total of 22 patients with locally invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder were treated with neoadjuvant cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (CDDP), vincristine, peplomycin (PVB) or cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, CDDP (CAP) combined with radiation therapy in our institutes between June, 1982 and May, 1988. Twelve patients were entered into the PVB regimen and the remaining 10 patients into the CAP regimen. In the PVB treated group, clinical response was obtained in 2 complete response (CR) and 6 partial response (PR), 8 out of 12 patients (66.7%). Downstaging was noted in 8 out of 12 patients (66.7%). In the CAP treated group, a clinical response was obtained in 1 of CR and in 2 of PR out of the 9 patients with evaluable lesions (33.3%). Downstaging was noted in 6 out of 9 patients (66.7%). There were no significant side effects in either the PVB or CAP treated groups, and these neoadjuvant therapies were well-tolerated. These results indicated that neoadjuvant PVB or CAP combined with radiation therapy would be useful in the management of invasive bladder cancer.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
