VP-16, cyclophosphamide, adriamycin and cis-platinum (V:CAP-I) in patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the lung

, : VP-16, cyclophosphamide, adriamycin and cis-platinum (V:CAP-I) in patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the lung. Tumori 65(1): 105-109

In an attempt to improve upon the 42% regression rate of the CAP-I regimen in patients with advanced adenocarcinoma of the lung, VP-16 was added to that regimen. VP-16, as a single agent, had a response rate of 12.5% (3/24) In a similar group of patients. The new regimen, V:CAP-I, had a tumor regression rate of 35% (7/20) and an estimated median survival of 171 days. Hence, we were unable to conclude that the addition of VP-16 to the CAP-I regimen statistically improved the regression rate of the CAP-I regimen.

Human leukocyte-associated immunoglobulin-like receptor 1 (hLAIR-1) is an immune inhibitory receptor for collagen that is expressed on most immune cells. We previously showed that the LAIR-1-collagen interaction could be antagonized by the secrete...
