However, a 2007 study by Yuen et al. Determined antiviral treatment treatment with LAM is associated with a 76 percent drug – resistance rate after eight years. In recent years, studies have to be superior to entecavir in the reduction of HBV-DNA , as shown with only a 1.2 percent drug resistance after five years Lam.. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 2 billion people infected with HBV, about 360 million of these cases are chronic infection that could lead to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma .
Sources: Wiley – Blackwell, AlphaGalileo Foundation.. In the latest study, James Fung, and the team of Professor Man – Fung Yuen, led by the University of Hong Kong, it was examined whether first HBV DNA suppression could be due to the stronger antiviral agent, entecavir, by switching on LAM, a less potent and less costly antiviral be maintained. The potential for a drug resistance and viral rebound with sequential therapy of the two anti-viral therapies has also been examined.

The median progression – free survival using the results of this independent review was 11 months vs 5 months this treatment. May control all MSKCC risk factors such as prior nephrectomy observed ECOG performance status, hemoglobin, corrected calcium. Significant differences in toxicities neutropenia and lymphopenia in the interferon arm Trial ED Set Standart . Fatigue also greater in the interferon arm. Grade 3 or 4 diarrhea , hypertension and hand-foot syndrome were at a significantly higher rate in the sunitinib arm than the interferon arm. The functional assessment of cancer therapy-general score, quality of life parameters were also significantly better in the sunitinib arm compared to the interferon arm.
There are 3 ligand and receptors of the VEGF – class, homo and heterodimerization may cause different biological effects, including hemangiogenesis, angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. Of the three ligands in the VEGF – class, which is one the most important tumor cell angiogenesis VEGF A. This ligand binds to the VEGF 2 receptor. There are several ways in which may inhibited. Antibodies can prevent the binding of VEGF-A ligand to the receptor. Agents that bevacuzimab comprise act according to this mechanism. The signal cascade of the VEGF a receptor blocked can be. By tyrosine kinase inhibitors Two drugs in this class include sorafanib and sunitinib. The median progressiondied the multitargeted receptor kinase receptor inhibitor sunitinib in patients with metastatic clear cell carcinoma Both sunitinib targets the kinase activity of both vascular endothelial growth factor. B receptor and platelet derived growth factor A total of 750 patients were randomized received sunitinib 50 mg orally daily for 4 weeks to receive a 2 – week break, or interferon, starting at 3 MU TIW.
