BACKGROUND: The prognosis of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains poor, particularly among patients with portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT). This study evaluated the efficacy of combined 5-fluorouracil and pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) alpha-2b in patients with advanced HCC... CONCLUSIONS: Although a prospective randomized controlled trial using a larger population of patients with advanced HCC is needed to evaluate combination therapy with 5-fluorouracil and PEG-IFNalpha-2b, this new combination therapy may be useful for patients with advanced HCC.

Clinical Trials Related to Adrucil (Fluorouracil)

Retrospective Evaluation of 5-FU Exposure Optimization in CRC Patients [Enrolling by invitation]
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate whether the management of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) exposure optimization testing reduces 5-FU related toxicities and improves outcomes compared to the current standard of care. A secondary objective is to characterize the variability of 5-FU levels among CRC patients managed with 5-FU exposure optimization testing and the impact of such management on 5-FU plasma levels and drug doses during the course of chemotherapy.

Docetaxel, 5-Fluorouracil and Oxaliplatin in Adenocarcinoma of the Stomach or Gastroesophageal Junction Patients [Completed]
Phase I Objectives Primary: 1. The primary objective of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of Docetaxel combined with 5-Fluorouracil and Oxaliplatin (D-FOX) in patients with untreated, locally unresectable or metastatic adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ). Secondary: 1. To determine the qualitative and quantitative toxicity and reversibility of toxicity of this combination. Phase II Objectives Primary: 1. To assess time to cancer progression to D-FOX treatment regimen. Secondary: 1. To assess response rate to D-FOX treatment regimen. 2. To determine the qualitative and quantitative toxicity and reversibility of toxicity of this combination treatment regimen. 3. Determine overall survival. 4. Perform an exploratory investigation into the effect of D-FOX on phenotypic abnormalities in blood.

Hepatic Arterial Infusion Oxaliplatin + 5FU, Leucovorin, and Bevacizumab +/- Cetuximab [Completed]
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the best combination of oxaliplatin, bevacizumab, 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin, and cetuximab that can be given to patients with advanced cancer that has spread to the liver. Different combinations of these drugs will be used, and the safety of all drug combinations will also be studied.

Lenalidomide in Combination With Bevacizumab, Sorafenib, Temsirolimus, or 5-Fluorouracil, Leucovorin, Oxaliplatin (FOLFOX) [Active, not recruiting]
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable doses of the combinations of lenalidomide and other drugs that can be given to patients with advanced cancer. The safety of the drug combinations will also be studied.

A New Agent GM-CT-01 in Combination With 5-FU, Avastin and Leucovorin in Subjects With Colorectal Cancer [Terminated]
The purpose of this clinical trial is to determine whether the combination of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) plus a DAVANAT (carbohydrate polymer) along with Avastin and Leucovorin (LV) is beneficial in treating colorectal cancer in patients unable to tolerate intensive chemotherapy.
