Gemcitabine (2′-2′-difluorodeoxycytidine) is a well-known cytotoxic drug and a potent radio-enhancer. We herein report the in vitro evidence of its activity, and the clinical experiences when this drug is administered concurrently with radiation.

Abstract

Gemcitabine (2′-2′-difluorodeoxycytidine) is a well-known cytotoxic drug and a potent radio-enhancer. We herein report the in vitro evidence of its activity, and the clinical experiences when this drug is administered concurrently with radiation. The phase I-II trials are analyzed, focusing on the recent ability to deliver irradiation with low incidence of side effects. © 2006 Oxford University Press.
