What is cancer Adriamycin PFS?
- cancer adriamycin pfs
- One can recognize, effective treatment of hormonally-unresponsive metastatic carcinoma (i.e., secondary carcinoma) of the prostate (i.e., prostata, or glandula prostatica) with adriamycin and cyclophosphamide methods of documenting tumor reply and patterned advance. Cyclophosphamide is a drug that is used to treat many types of cancer and is being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer. It is also used to treat some types of kidney (i.e., ren, or nephros) disease in children. Cyclophosphamide attaches to DNA in cells and may kill cancer cells. It is a type of alkylating agent. Also called CTX and Cytoxan. Metastatic, having to do with metastasis (i.e., secondaries), which is the spread of cancer from the primary site (place where it started) to other places in the body. Prostate is a gland (i.e., glandula) in the male (i.e., masculine) reproductive system (i.e., genital system). The prostate surrounds the part of the urethra (the tube (i.e., tuba) that empties the bladder) just below the bladder, and produces a fluid that forms part of the semen (i.e., seed, or seminal fluid). Bladder is the organ that stores urine.
- It has been found that, early adjuvant adriamycin in superficial (i.e., superficialis, or sublimis) vesica (i.e., urinary bladder (i.e., vesica urinaria, or vesica)) carcinoma. Superficial, affecting cells on the surface (i.e., face, or facies). Not invasive.
- It has been found that, adriamycin instillations as recurrence (i.e., relapse) prophylaxis in superficial urinary bladder cancer. Prophylaxis is an attempt to prevent disease. Bladder cancer, cancer that forms in tissues of the bladder (the organ that stores urine). Most bladder cancers are transitional cell carcinomas (cancer that begins in cells that normally make up the inner lining of the bladder). Other types include squamous (i.e., scaly) cell carcinoma (cancer that begins in thin, flat cells) and adenocarcinoma (i.e., glandular (i.e., glandulous) cancer, or glandular carcinoma) (cancer that begins in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). The cells that form squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma develop in the inner lining of the bladder as a result of chronic irritation and inflammation. Recurrence, cancer that has recurred (come back), usually after a period of time during which the cancer could not be detected. The cancer may come back to the same place as the original (primary) tumor or to another place in the body. Also called recurrent cancer. Urinary, having to do with urine or the organs of the body that produce and get rid of urine.
