The introduction of BRAF and MEK inhibitors into clinical practice improved the prognosis of metastatic melanoma patients. The combination of BRAF inhibitor dabrafenib with MEK inhibitor trametinib has shown...
A Phase II trial of 8 weeks of degarelix for prostate volume reduction: Efficacy and hormonal recovery.
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of 8 weeks of degarelix for prostate downsizing before interstitial brachytherapy. We also report associated toxicity and the time course of endocrine recovery over the following 12 months.
Degarelix treatment is compatible with diabetes and antithrombotic therapy in patients with prostate cancer.
This study aimed to ascertain the following: 1) the compatibility of degarelix treatment with diabetes and 2) any specific causal associations of degarelix injections with increased blood clotting and antithrombotic therapy requirements.
Degarelix versus luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonists for the treatment of prostate cancer.
This review will summarize the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of the GnRH antagonist degarelix and its role in the management of advanced prostate cancer, the clinical evidence supporting...
The primary aim of this study was to assess whether there is a correlation between effective dose of rapid onset fentanyl and background oral morphine equivalent analgesia in children less than 18 years old.
