In addition, Kiadis Pharma will host a satellite symposium on March 26, 2017 entitled: "Advances in Haploidentical Stem Cell Transplantation and Post-Transplant Immunotherapy". The symposium will be chaired by Dr. Hermann Einsele, Professor at the University Hospital of the Julius-Maximilians-University, WA1 4rzburg, Germany and he will be joined by several other international key opinion leaders in the field of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
A drug already used to slow tumor growth may also prevent infertility caused by standard chemotherapies, according to a study published online March 6 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences . Led by researchers from NYU Langone Medical Center, the study in mice found that the drug everolimus protects ovaries from cyclophosphamide, a chemotherapy used often against breast cancer, but known to deplete the supply of egg cells needed to achieve pregnancy.
Capecitabine is not considered a standard agent in the adjuvant treatment of early breast cancer. The results of this study suggest that addition of adjuvant capecitabine to a regimen that contains docetaxel, epirubicin, and cyclophosphamide improves survival outcomes of patients with triple-negative breast cancer .
The introduction of corticosteroids and later, cyclophosphamide dramatically improved survival in patients with proliferative lupus nephritis, and combined administration of these agents became the standard-of-care treatment for this disease. However, treatment failures were still common and the rate of progression to ESRD remained unacceptably high.

To compare the efficacy and safety of calcineurin inhibitors with cyclophosphamide in the treatment of idiopathic membranous nephropathy . A literature search was carried out using PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials , and three Chinese databases from inception through June 2016.
