Phase I, II & III Clinical Studies that used the BSD-2000

Authors: Issels RD, Lindner LH, Verweij J, Wessalowski R, Reichardt P, Wust P, Ghadjar P, Hohenberger P, Angele M, Salat C, Vujaskovic Z, Daugaard S, Mella O, Mansmann U, Dürr HR, Knösel T, Abdel-Rahman S, Schmidt M, Hiddemann W, Jauch KW, Belka C, Gronchi A; European Organization for the Research and Treatment of Cancer-Soft Tissue and Bone Sarcoma Group and the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology.
Publication: JAMA Oncol. 2018 Feb 15. doi: 10.1001/jamaoncol.2017.4996.

IMPORTANCE:
Patients with soft tissue sarcoma are at risk for local recurrence and distant metastases despite optimal local treatment. Preoperative anthracycline plus ifosfamide chemotherapy improves outcome in common histological subtypes.

Publication:Am J Clin Oncol. 1991 Dec;14(6):472-7.

PURPOSE:
During a 6-year period, 53 patients with advanced tumors of the genitourinary tract were treated in Phase I protocols with deep regional hyperthermia in combination with irradiation (83%) or in combination with chemotherapy (11%).

Publication: Strahlenther Onkol. 2008 Mar;184(3):163-8. doi: 10.1007/s00066-008-1731-8.

PURPOSE:
Encouraging results of phase II studies combining chemotherapy with radiotherapy have been published. In this study, the results of a multimodal salvage therapy including radiochemotherapy (RCT) and regional hyperthermia (RHT) in preirradiated patients with recurrent rectal cancer are reported.

PURPOSE:
To validate a nomogram for the prediction of treatment outcomes after preoperative radiochemotherapy and surgery for locally advanced rectal cancer with a cohort of patients treated with additional deep regional hyperthermia.

Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2006 Mar;22(2):161-72.

PURPOSE:
The study was designed to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of IP cisplatin [CDDP] combined with intravenous thiosulphate and concurrent whole abdomen hyperthermia for advanced, recurrent or progressive ovarian carcinoma..

Authors: Tschoep-Lechner KE, Milani V, Berger F, Dieterle N, Abdel-Rahman S, Salat C, Issels RD.
Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2013;29(1):8-16. doi: 10.3109/02656736.2012.740764. Epub 2012 Dec 17.

PURPOSE:
There is no standard second-line therapy for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer (APC) after gemcitabine (G) failure. Cisplatin (Cis)-based chemotherapy has shown activity in APC. It is proven that cytotoxicity of G and Cis is enhanced by heat exposure at 40° to 42°C. Therefore G plus Cis with regional hyperthermia (RHT) might be beneficial for patients with G-refractory APC.

Authors: Fiegl M, Schlemmer M, Wendtner CM, Abdel-Rahman S, Fahn W, Issels RD.
Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2004 Sep;20(6):661-70.

PURPOSE:
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of ICE (ifosfamide 1.5 g m(-2), carboplatin 100 mg m(-2) and etoposide 150 mg m(-2), days 1-4, q 28 days, G-CSF 5 microg kg(-1) starting from day 6) alone and in combination with regional hyperthermia (RHT) in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) refractory to previous standard doxorubicin-ifosfamide-based chemotherapy.
