Role of Topotecan in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: A Review of Literature
Topotecan (TPT), a chemotherapeutic agent, is a topoisomerase-I inhibitor. Topoisomerase-I is a nuclear enzyme that relieves torsion strain in DNA by opening single strand breaks which helps in DNA replication. TPT inhibits this enzyme, thus preventing DNA replication and causes cell death. TPT has demonstrated to have broad spectrum of antitumor activity in tumors like cervical, ovarian, endometrial and small cell lung cancers (SCLCs). Full Text

A Nationwide Survey in Japan of Palliative Radiotherapy for Bleeding in Gastrointestinal and Genitourinary Tumor Patients
In end-stage cancer, bleeding may markedly influence the patient’s quality of life, and radiotherapy plays an important role in the control of the bleeding. In particular, there is no clear evidence of the benefit of palliative radiotherapy for cancers including gastric, rectal, and bladder cancers. A clarification of the current status of palliative radiotherapy for bleeding is needed. Full Text
