  • [Title] Arginase as a useful factor for the diagnosis of colorectal cancer liver metastases.
  • : The present work is a continuation of studies on arginase as a marker in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer liver metastases (CRCLM).
  • The purpose of the study was the evaluation of the arginase test in comparison with other colorectal cancer tests such as CEA, CA 19-9 and biochemical markers of liver function such as aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT).
  • The studies were conducted on blood serum from 85 patients with CRCLM obtained one to two days before tumor resection.
  • The control group comprised 140 healthy blood donors and 81 patients with various non-malignant gastrointestinal diseases.
  • It can thus be concluded that the determination of serum arginase activity can be helpful in the diagnosis of patients with colorectal cancer liver metastases.

  • [Title] KL-6 mucin in metastatic liver cancer tissues from primary colorectal carcinoma.
  • This study aimed to assess subcellular localization of KL-6 mucin in liver metastatic tissues from colorectal carcinoma and hepatocellular carcinoma tissues.
  • METHODOLOGY: Tissue samples were collected from 56 patients with liver metastasis of colorectal carcinoma and 92 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who underwent a hepatectomy.
  • RESULTS: All 56 cases with metastatic liver cancer showed positive staining for KL-6 mucin in cancer tissues but not in non-cancerous tissues.
  • All staining was observed in the circumferential membrane and/or cytoplasm of the cancer cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: KL-6 mucin may be an indicator for liver metastasis of colorectal carcinoma.
  • Additionally, detection of KL-6 mucin may be helpful in distinguishing hepatocellular carcinoma from metastatic liver cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Percutaneous hepatic perfusion in patients with metastatic liver cancer: anesthetic, hemodynamic, and metabolic considerations.
  • BACKGROUND: Percutaneous hepatic perfusion (PHP), a regional cancer therapy, entails insertion of percutaneous catheters to isolate hepatic vasculature and enable simultaneous hepatic venous hemofiltration of high-dose chemotherapy.
  • PHP has been shown to be safe and to benefit some patients with liver metastases.
  • METHODS: We examined hemodynamic and metabolic changes as well as anesthetic implications during PHP in patients with metastatic liver cancer enrolled in clinical trials of escalating doses of melphalan between 2001 and 2006.
  • Diagnoses included neuroendocrine tumors, melanoma, and metastatic carcinomas.
  • Based upon available data derived from all procedures, incorporating multiple procedures per patient, after occlusion of the inferior vena cava and during hepatic perfusion, there were decreases in mean arterial (-15.4 +/- 1 and -7.4 +/- 1 mmHg, respectively) and central venous pressure (-5.4 +/- 0.3 and -5.6 +/- 0.3 mmHg) and increases in heart rate (11 +/- 1 and 13.4 +/- 0.9 bpm) (all p < 0.0001) which resolved with completion of the procedure.
  • During hepatic perfusion with melphalan, compared to baseline, there were decreases in pH (-0.09 +/- 0.01) and bicarbonate (-3.3 +/- 0.6 mmol/L) (both p < 0.0001) and, upon completion of procedure, increases (2.6 +/- 0.4 mmol/L) in bicarbonate, compared to values during hepatic perfusion (p < 0.0001).
  • In order to assure patient comfort and facilitate timely diagnosis and treatment of associated hemodynamic and metabolic changes, we favor administration of general anesthesia, rather than sedation, for patients undergoing PHP.

  • [Title] Clinical significance of microvessel count in patients with metastatic liver cancer originating from colorectal carcinoma.
  • We investigated whether MVC assessed by staining with CD34 antibody was associated with disease-free and overall survival in patients with metastatic liver cancer (MLC).
  • By means of the modern Japanese classification of liver metastasis, poorer survival was associated with higher score, poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, higher preoperative carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level, fibrous pseudocapsular formation, and smaller surgical margin.
  • Shorter disease-free survival was associated with higher score when the Japanese classification of liver metastasis was used, multiple or bilobar tumor, regional lymph node metastasis in primary colon carcinoma, preoperative CEA level, fibrous pseudocapsular formation, and smaller surgical margin (<5 mm).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumor MVC seems to be a useful prognostic marker of MLC patient survival.

  • However, there is a high risk of post-operative complications, such as local recurrence, metastatic lymphadenopathy, carcinomatosa peritonitis and liver metastasis.
  • Presently, there is no significant treatment that has yet had a strong impact on recurrent pancreatic cancer.
  • This study was conducted concerning recurrent pancreatic cancer with metastatic liver tumors after pancreatectomy.
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Between April 1998 and March 2005, our institute treated recurrent pancreatic cancer patients with liver metastasis.
  • RESULTS: Nine cases had a recurrent pancreatic cancer with metastatic liver tumors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prolongation of the survival period was obtained by administration of GEM for recurrent pancreatic cancer with metastatic liver tumors and inoperable advanced pancreatic cancer.
  • We attempted to utilize the active treatment for recurrent pancreatic cancer with metastatic liver tumors.
  • Thus, it was indicated that the therapy can be effective against recurrent pancreatic cancer with metastatic liver tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : e15677 Background: Almost 30% of patients with pancreatic cancer present with locally advanced tumours in absence of distant metastasis.
  • The combination of gemcitabine with concurrent radiation therapy is a promising approach that is being investigated in patients' unresectable pancreatic cancer.
  • AIM OF THE WORK: The efficacy of preoperative gemcitabine based chemo-radiotherapy in increasing the resectability rate for patients locally advanced, non metastatic pancreatic cancer was assessed.
  • RESULTS: Patients who achieved complete remission (CR) were 2 out of 25 patients while those achieved partial remission (PR) were 11 out of 25, 6 of them were considered operable.
  • Out of 8 patients who underwent radical surgical resection, only one patient developed local recurrence and simultaneous liver metastasis during the follow up period.
  • CONCLUSIONS: preoperative gemcitabine based chemoradiation might benefit patients with locally advanced non metastatic pancreatic cancer by increasing the resectability without significant acute toxicity.

  • [Title] Phase II trial of GTX chemotherapy in metastatic pancreatic cancer.
  • This GTX regimen was designed to inhibit MEK-ERK phosphorylation and increase BAX and BAK and also decrease BCL-2 in pancreatic cancer cell lines.
  • Based on these findings, we pursued a prospective clinical trial evaluating the activity of GTX in previously untreated patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer.
  • METHODS: Patients with histologically confirmed metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, median age 60, 63% male, ECOG PS 0-2, received capecitabine 1500mg/m2/day total orally in divided doses, days 1 thru 14, gemcitabine 750mg/m2 IV over 75 minutes followed by docetaxel 30mg/m2 IV on days 4 and 11 on a 21 day cycle.
  • Scans were completed every 9 to 10 weeks to assess for tumor response by RECIST criteria.
  • Secondary endpoints were overall survival (OS) measured as time from start of GTX to death, time to treatment failure (TTF) measured as time from start of GTX to disease progression or other reason for a halt in therapy.
  • 35 patients (85%) had liver metastases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The combination of gemcitabine, docetaxel, and capecitabine has activity in metastatic pancreatic cancer with a median survival over 1 year.

  • [Title] Liver regenerative nodular hyperplasia consecutive to preoperative chemotherapy: Impact on outcome of liver surgery for colorectal metastases.
  • : 4097 Background: Regenerative nodular hyperplasia (RNH) represents the worst evolutive stage of vascular lesions induced by prolonged chemotherapy on the liver.
  • Its incidence and impact on the outcome of resection for colorectal liver metastases (CLM) are however unknown.
  • Detailed histopathologic analysis of the nontumoral liver was performed at first and repeat hepatectomies according to a standard format.
  • The presence of RNH was associated with increased postoperative hepatic morbidity (23% vs 11%) (P=0.05).
  • RNH disappeared at second hepatectomy in both patients following prolonged treatment with irinotecan.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with CLM that receive prolonged courses of preoperative oxaliplatin have an increased risk of RNH and associated postoperative hepatic morbidity.

  • [Title] Long-term overall survival (os) and prognostic factors of patients (pts) with surgery of liver metastases from colorectal cancer origin (lm/crc): Retrospective analysis of a Spanish single institution.
  • Long-term survival following liver resection (LR) has improved.
  • Multiple potential prognostic factors for survival were analyzed: synchronic vs. metachronic, post-op chemotherapy (CT) vs. no, lymph node (LN) status of primary tumor, R<sub>0</sub> vs. R<sub>1-2</sub> resection, gender, location of primary tumor, number and size of metastases, and unilobar vs. bilobar disease.
  • Pts' characteristics: 123 male, 67 female; median age 63 yrs (32-85); 95 pts synchronic, 95 metachronic; 145 pts (76%) received post-op CT; LN status was <sub>p</sub>N<sub>0</sub> in 61 (32%) pts, <sub>p</sub>N<sub>1</sub> in 74 (39%) and <sub>p</sub>N<sub>2</sub> in 52 (27%).
  • 5-year OS differed between metachronic and synchronic (64% vs. 39%; p<0.001); LN-status (73% for <sub>p</sub>N<sub>0</sub> vs. 41% for <sub>p</sub>N<sub>1-2;</sub> p<0.001); R<sub>0</sub>/R<sub>1-2</sub> surgery (58% for R<sub>0</sub> vs. 21% for R<sub>1- 2</sub>; p=0.002).
  • Non-significant factors for prognosis were gender, location of primary tumor, number and size of metastases, bilobar disease and adjuvant CT.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pts with LM/CRC who undergo liver resection can achieve long-term OS, our data identifying as prognostic factors: LN status, synchronic/metachronic disease and Type of resection (R<sub>0</sub>).

  • [Title] Current status of treatment of local recurrence and distant metastasis of triple negative breast cancer in Japanese population.
  • : e11548 Background: Triple-negative breast cancers have an aggressive clinical history such as high incidence of visceral metastases, high rate of cerebral metastases, high rate of local recurrence, and early age of onset.
  • METHODS: From the medical records of our hospital, we retrospectively reviewed breast cancer patients whose three markers were available and describe the relationship between current therapy and clinical outcome.
  • RESULTS: Between 1998 and 2007, 1967 breast cancer patients were treated in Kumamoto City Hospital.
  • As of December 2008, with a median follow-up time of 31months, 53 patients (20.0%) with TNBC had locoregional recurrences or distant metastases (17 local recurrences, 15 nodal recurrences, 44 distant metastases).
  • Of 53 patients with recurrences, 31 had initial locoregional recurrence and 19 had initial distant metastases.
  • Forty two patients had already been dead and common causes of death were lung metastases (19 patients), liver metastases (11 patients), and brain metastases (8 patients).
  • Furthermore, patients with initial distant metastases had significantly poorer survival than those with initial locoregional recurrence (p=0.015).

  • [Title] Chemotherapy-induced thymidine phosphorylase modulation in colorectal cancer.
  • Preliminary evidence suggests that TP immunohistochemical expression may predict benefit from first-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) with C plus irinotecan.
  • The aim of the present analysis was to verify if TP expression differs among primary and paired metastases in CRC patients, or may vary depending on patients' exposure to chemotherapy.
  • METHODS: TP expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry (clone p-P-GF.44C, Abcam, Cambridge, UK) in a series of 120 primary CRC and their matched distant metastases.
  • Sites of biopsied metastases were liver (n=41), lung (n=10), and peritoneum (n=6).
  • Metastases were asynchronous in 42% of patients.
  • Higher TP expression was observed in primary cancers than in metastases (36.8% vs. 15.8%, p=0.007).
  • Among patients who received at least one cycle of chemotherapy before metastasis sampling (38.6%), a TP expression decrease was demonstrated in only 13% of metastatic samples.
  • Oppositely, a significantly higher proportion of untreated patients lost TP expression in metastasis sites (36%, p=0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In advanced CRC patients, TP expression tend to decrease in metastases, particularly in those patients who did not receive chemotherapy before metastatic sampling.

  • [Title] Histological hepatic changes in patients undergoing liver resection for colorectal metastasis: A retrospective cohort study.
  • : e15034 Background: Patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) with liver metastases (LM) have a poor prognosis and the only potential cure is surgical resection.
  • However, chemotherapy can be associated with hepatic toxicity which may influence postoperative morbidity.
  • 53 (53%) patients had positive lymph nodes (primary tumor) and 51 (48%) had with synchronous LM.
  • Pathological analysis of the resected liver segments reviewed mild (<30%) steatosis in 58% of patients.
  • There were no significant increased rates of liver toxicity in patients with NC.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that neoadjuvant chemotherapy, although associated with increased steatosis is not associated with increased perioperative morbidity and mortality with liver resection.

  • [Title] Docetaxel plus capecitabine in the treatment of previous anthracycline-treated patients with metastatic breast cancer.
  • : e12014 Background: Anthracyclines have been considered the challenge of the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.
  • We conducted a study in previously anthracyclines treated metastatic breast cancer by the regimen docetaxel 75 mg/m2 Day 1 - capecitabine 2500 mg/m2 day split-up over 2 daily doses from Day 1 to Day 14; every 21 Days.
  • METHODS: Patients were eligible if they had metastatic breast cancer after an adjuvant setting by anthracyclines.
  • 100 % of patients had metastatic breast cancer.
  • The sites of metastases were liver in 14 ( 77.7%), lung in 5 (27.7%) and bone in 9 (50%).
  • 11 patients (61.1%) had 1 or 2 metastatic sites, 7 (38.9%) had 3 metastatic sites.
  • The main toxicities were as follows: neutropenia grade 3 in 3 patients (16.6 %), anemia grade 2-3 in 2 patients (11.1%), fatigue in 2 patients (11.1%), hand-foot syndrome in 7 patients (38.9%), vomiting-nausea in 4 patients (22.2%), diarrhea in 2 patients (11.1%), liver toxicity in 3 patients (16.6%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this preliminary analysis, the combination of docetaxel - capecitabine in the treatment of previously anthracyclines treated metastatic breast cancer appears to be an active schedule.

  • [Title] Distribution of metastases in NSCLC: Economic impact of imaging.
  • Given that many patients have metastases to several organs, one important question is - "what is the frequency of metastases in the chest, the abdomen, the pelvis, elsewhere?
  • RESULTS: We found that there were 690 metastases to the chest, 205 to the abdomen, 80 to the bones, 18 to the pelvis, 13 to the brain and 23 others, not specified.
  • If we consider the actual incidence of metastases, we find the following absolute statistics: 16 patients had pelvic involvement.
  • This compares with 42 patients with adrenal metastases, 81 with liver metastases, 80 with bone metastases, 112 with hilar adenopathy, and 159 with mediastinal adenopathy. (See Table ) Conclusions: The cost of a CT of the pelvis varies, but is estimated at approximately $2000[Fred, Herbert L., MD, MACP.

  • [Title] Epigenetic alterations of primary tumor and metastatic site of colorectal carcinoma (mCRC).
  • Aberrant DNA promoter methylation frequently occurs as early event in carcinogenesis as important mechanism of inactivation of tumor suppressor genes.
  • Our hypothesis states a potential role of tumor suppressor methylation in inhibiting EGFR signaling cascade thus blocking anti-EGFR therapeutic effect.
  • Our further aim was to evidence the role of epigenetic alterations in metastatic progression.
  • Primary tumor and liver metastatic tissues have been characterized for k-ras and BRAF mutations and for promoter methylation of p16, RASSF1A and RARbeta suppressor genes by Quantitative Methylation-Specific PCR (QMSP).
  • The two genes conserved their characteristics in both site of disease: primary tumor and liver metastasis.
  • RARbeta promoter methylation mean content resulted significantly higher in k-ras mutated with respect to k-ras wt tumors (209.96 vs 0.44 respectively, p<0.01).
  • Interestingly, the percentage of RARbeta methylation in metastatic sites of k-ras wt tumors is significantly higher than that of the related primary tumors (20% vs 100% respectively, p<0.05).
  • RASSF1A and p16 genes resulted less methylated in k-ras wt patients and significantly higher methylated in metastatic than in primary site (p<0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results might suggest that genetic and epigenetic changes specifically interact to promote tumorigenesis of colon carcinoma and that epigenetic events have to be taken into account when setting biological therapy mainly in metastatic disease.

  • [Title] Heterogeneous expression of prognostic and predictive antigens in primary and metastatic gastric cancer.
  • : e22030 Background: Metastatic spread of cancer cells is a key event in tumor progression and in determining the prognosis of patients with malignant disease.
  • This study evaluated the expression of prognostic and predictive molecules in primary and metastatic gastric cancer.
  • METHODS: The clinicopathological features of 94 patients (57,4% male, 42,6% female, median age of 66,2 years) with gastric cancer were characterized using multivariate and univariate analysis.
  • Further we compared the expression profile of biomarkers, namely EPCAM, CD44s, HLA-ABC and the associated β chain, HLA-DR, ICAM-1, LFA-3 and E-Cadherin in primary gastric tumors (n=94) and their synchronous metastases (regional lymph nodes n=32, liver n=14, peritoneum n=17) using immunoperoxidase staining.
  • RESULTS: Strong HLA-ABC expression was found in both primary and metastatic tumors.
  • High expression of HLA-ABC in liver metastases significantly correlated with metastatic disease (UICC TNM stage IV, p=0,026).
  • Contrary, the detection of HLA-DR on the cancer cells correlated with the degree of the inflammatory infiltrate (CD45, p=0,019).
  • With respect to CD44s, the prognostic marker was upregulated in the metastatic tumors independently of their localisation (p=0.009) compared to the primary lesions.
  • E-cadherin and LFA-3 expression were preferentially increased in distant metastases, but not in locally advanced gastric tumors (liver: E-cadherin, p=0.001; liver and peritoneum: LFA-3, p=0.0067).
  • E-cadherin expression was upregulated in the heterotypic spheroid model coculturing primary liver cells and N87 gastric cancer cells (80% E-cadherin positive N87 cells) compared to the homotypic spheroid model consisting of N87 cells alone (40% E-cadherin positive N87 cells).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest the consideration of the metastatic protein profile for the selection of cancer patients in new molecular therapeutic strategies.

  • : e15648 Background: S-1 was reported to be active against gemcitabine (Gem)-refractory pancreatic cancer (PaC) in Japan and was introduced in February 2005 in our institution.
  • The introduction rates of second-line chemotherapy and the causes of introduction failure were assessed.
  • There were no differences in baseline characteristics at PD for Gem between PreS-1 and PostS-1 Groups, except for metastasis to peritoneum more prevalent in PreS-1 Group (44.7% in PreS-1 Group and 23.0% in PostS-1 Group, p=0.023).
  • The introduction rate of second-line chemotherapy increased from 12.8% in PreS-1 Group to 45.9% in PostS-1 Group.
  • Second-line chemotherapy was administered in 34 pts, 29 by S-1, 4 by 5-FU-based chemoradiation, and 1 by 5-FU.
  • The causes of introduction failure of second line chemotherapy were poor PS in 64.9%, patients' refusal in 16.2%, infection in 2.7%, adverse effects of Gem in 1.4% and jaundice in 1.4%.
  • RR, PFS, and OS for second-line S-1 were 17.2%, 2.5 Mo, and 7.8 Mo, respectively.
  • The Cox hazard model revealed PreS-1 Group (HR2.42, p=0.001) in addition to male gender (HR1.83, p=0.019), poor PS (HR3.52, p<0.001), liver metastasis (HR2.36, p=0.037), elevated LDH (per 100U/L increase) (HR 1.30, p=0.046), elevated CRP (HR 1.14, p=0.023) at PD for Gem as poor prognostic factors of RS for Gem-refractory PaC.

  • [Title] A phase Ib study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AMG 655 in combination with gemcitabine (G) in patients (pts) with metastatic pancreatic cancer (PC).
  • : 4501 Background: AMG 655 is an investigational, fully human agonist monoclonal antibody (IgG1) that binds human death receptor 5 (DR5), activates caspases, and induces apoptosis in sensitive tumor cells.
  • We performed a multi-center phase I trial to evaluate AMG 655 + G in metastatic PC pts.
  • Secondary endpoints included toxicity, pharmacokinetics, antibody formation, objective response rate, progression-free survival (PFS), 6-month and overall survival.
  • METHODS: Eligible pts had previously untreated metastatic PC and ECOG PS 0 or 1.
  • Pt characteristics: females 61%; ECOG PS 1 69%; median age 65 (range 35-81); liver metastases 77%.
  • After one 3 or 10 mg/kg dose of AMG 655 after G, the C<sub>max</sub> and AUC of AMG 655 were similar to those in the first- in-human single-agent study (LoRusso JCO 2007; 25: abstract 3534).
  • CONCLUSIONS: AMG 655 + G is well-tolerated and may have activity in metastatic pancreatic cancer.

  • [Title] Outcome in stage IV Wilms tumor treated according to the Associazione Italiana Ematologia Oncologia Pediatrica (AIEOP) trials.
  • : 10031 Background: Children with metastases at diagnosis for Wilms tumor (WT) still display a worse prognosis compared to localized disease.
  • Treatment strategy across these trials evolved in terms of sparing whole lung radiotherapy (RT) in case of complete disappearance of lung metastases after primary chemotherapy and a doxorubicin cumulative dose reduction from 360 mg/m<sup>2</sup> to 240 mg/m<sup>2</sup> in TW2003.
  • Adjuvant therapy included 8-month 3-drug chemotherapy for non anaplastic "local" tumor stage I to III (flank RT for stage III), or an intensified regimen for anaplastic histology, adding etoposide, carboplatinum and ifosfamide (6 patients).
  • Overall 19 tumor failure occurred (3 in anaplastic tumors): metastases progression 9, abdominal relapse 5 (combined to liver and mediastinum in 1 case each), lung 4, liver 1.
  • Overall, RFS was 86% in patients who achieved a complete metastases remission (in 2 cases by surgery) compared to 55% in patients who did not (Logrank p<.05).
  • Noteworthy the omission of lung RT in TW2003 trial for complete responders evaluated at week 6 did not jeopardize survival (85% RFS, vs 58% for those children with persistence of metastases and lung RT).
  • There was a trend toward a worse outcome for patients with at least liver metastases (n 13) compared to those with other site (4-yr RFS 49% vs 74%, p=.1).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Failure to obtain metastases complete remission, and maybe site other than lung, should be considered for chemotherapy intensification for metastatic WT.
  • The impact of metastatic tumor burden deserves further analysis.

  • : 4098 Background: Preoperative chemotherapy (irinotecan and oxaliplatin), used in patients undergoing hepatic resection of colorectal liver metastases, is associated with the development of CASH.
  • This hepatic injury increases the risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality.
  • Fatty acid bile acid conjugates (FABACs) are novel synthetic lipid molecules that were shown to prevent the formation of diet induced fatty liver.
  • Their livers were homogenized and analyzed for fat content (measured as mg lipid/g liver tissue).
  • RESULTS: There were no significant differences in animal or liver weights between the groups.
  • Liver fat content, was significantly lower (P<0.0001) among the control (51.63 mg/g) and prevention (62.13 mg/g) groups versus the oxaliplatin group (95.35 mg/g).

  • METHODS: Sample tissue of alive patients diagnosed of stage IV colorectal cancer were analyzed for the presence of K-RAS mutation by PCR amplification and direct sequencing.
  • Data regarding presence of K-RAS mutation were retrospectively analyzed in relation to clinical data.
  • 25 pts had received previous complementary treatment; in 80 pts primary tumor was previously resected (85%); median number of affected organs was 1 (1-4); in first line 76 pts received bevacizumab and 18 did not received any biological agent.
  • Multivariable Cox analysis did not find any significant difference between sex (p=0.78), primary resected organ (p=0.28), liver metastases (p=0.37), LDH value at diagnosis (p=0.0.43), employ of biological agents in first line (p=0.37) or mutation in K-RAS gene (p=0.68).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The percentage of K-RAS mutants is coherent with the results of the literature; mutations Gly12Asp, Gly12Val, and Gly13Asp represents the majority of the cases (81%); no significant relation was found between responses or DFS and mutations in the gene.

  • [Title] Use of anti-neuropilin 1, 2 antibodies to predict colorectal cancer prognosis.
  • Neuropilins are widely expressed not only normal developing tissues but also several types of tumor cells.
  • It was reported that the expression of NRP-1 is increased by VEGF, mediated through VEGFR-2, which correlates with tumor growth and invasiveness in colorectal cancer.
  • NRP-2 knockout mice studies showed marked deficits in the development of small lymphatic vessels and its function was associated with the formation of lymphatic network, but the role of NRP-2 in colorectal cancer remains unknown.
  • In recent study, we have analyzed the expression of NRP-1 and NRP-2 in some cultured cell lines by western blot and the clinicopathological significance in colorectal cancer.
  • NRP-1 and NRP-2 gene expression was evaluated by RT- PCR, which was compared with immunohistochemical examination of colorectal cancer tissues.
  • The expression of NRP-1 showed apparent correlation with liver metastasis (p=0.027) and venous invasion (p=0.0025), while NRP-2 expression was correlated with lymph node metastasis (0.001) and lymphatic invasion (0.039) by immunohistochemical analysis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that NRP-1 acts as angiogenesis factor and NRP-2 acts lymphangiogenesis factor, both of them are useful predictive marker in colorectal cancer.

  • [Title] DWIBS (diffusion weighted whole body imaging with background signal suppression) scan for colorectal cancer and its evaluation: Comparison with CT or PET scans.
  • : e15140 Background: The most important clinical point for the colorectal cancer patients after surgery is to find out local recurrence and distant metastasis to liver or lungs in early state.
  • Recently, DWIBS (diffusion weighted whole body imaging with background body signal suppression) scan, one of the diffusion weighted MRI imaging methods, was developed, and it has been become used for diagnosis of lung cancer and bladder cancer instead of PET scan.
  • In this report, we examined whether it was more useful method for the diagnosis of recurrence or distant metastasis of the colorectal cancer after surgery than PET/CT scan or not.
  • METHODS: All the 12 primary colorectal carcinomas were resected at the surgical division, Kumamoto Central Hospital, Fukuoka Saisekai Ohmuta Hospital and Kurume University Medical Center from 2000 to 2008. (Table 1) After surgery, 14 recurrent regions (seven liver metastasis, two lung metastasis and five local recurrence) were diagnosed by CT and MRI scans.
  • And also the seven out of 12 cases (three liver metastasis, two lung metastasis and four local recurrence) were performed by PET scan.
  • RESULTS: All the 14 metastatic and recurrent regions (seven liver metastasis, two lung metastasis and five local recurrence ) of 12 recurrent patients were performed by DWIBS, MRI and CT scans.
  • Within the seven out of 12 recurrent patients (three liver metastasis, two lung metastasis and five local recurrence), performed by PET scan, all the liver and lung metastatic regions were detected, on the other hand, three out of four local recurrent regions were diagnosed but the other one was not diagnosed by PET scan.
  • CONCLUSIONS: DWIBS is not only useful diagnostic method for local recurrence of colorectal cancer after surgery, but also less invasive method than PET scan.

  • [Title] Expression of metastasis-associated gene products and liver metastases in pancreatic endocrine tumors.
  • We recently identified a novel set of 3 metastasis-associated genes by microarray: Palladin, p21, RUNX1T1.
  • Our aim was to evaluate the potential for these markers, individually or in combination, to predict liver metastases as an indicator of adverse outcome.
  • METHODS: Palladin, p21, and RUNX1T1 immunostains were done on a tissue microarray of 39 resected primary pancreatic endocrine neoplasms, 14 of which had hepatic metastases.
  • Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was used to choose the cutpoint in Allred score (high vs low protein expression) to optimize sensitivity and specificity for predicting liver metastases.
  • RESULTS: Nearly all tumors with liver metastases showed high Palladin and p21 levels (Allred score > 3 and > 4, respectively), while protein expression was lower in the majority of non-metastatic tumors.
  • In contrast, RUNX1T1 expression was low (Allred score < 4) in most tumors with liver metastases, but higher in all except one of the non-metastatic tumors.
  • Individual test sensitivities for predicting liver metastases were 100% for high Palladin, 93% for high p21 and 85% for low RUNX1T1, while corresponding specificities were 63%, 75%, and 96%.
  • Tumors were correctly classified as being metastatic or not (predictive accuracy) by Palladin, p21, or RUNX1T1 expression in 76%, 76%, and 92% of cases, respectively.
  • If abnormal expression of even one of 3 proteins is considered a positive test (parallel testing), then sensitivity of all 3 together for predicting liver metastases was 100%, specificity 48%, and predictive accuracy 68%.
  • CONCLUSIONS:. 1) High Palladin, high p21, or low RUNX1T1 expression have good sensitivity and specificity for predicting liver metastases in pancreatic endocrine tumors.
  • 3) Differential expression of these biomarkers may predict aggressive tumor behavior that warrants more aggressive management.

  • [Title] Preoperative hepatic and regional arterial chemotherapy in the prevention of liver metastasis after colorectal cancer surgery.
  • : 4090 Background: To investigate whether preoperative hepatic and regional arterial chemotherapy are able to prevent liver metastasis and improve overall survival in patients receiving curative colorectal cancer resection.
  • METHODS: Patients with Stage II or Stage III colorectal cancer (CRC) were randomly assigned to receive preoperative hepatic and regional arterial chemotherapy (PHRAC group, n=256) or surgery alone (control group, n=253).
  • The primary endpoint was disease-free survival, whereas the secondary endpoints included liver metastasis-free survival and overall survival.
  • During the follow-up period (median, 42 months), the median liver metastasis time for patients with stage III CRC was significantly longer in the PHRAC group (16±3 months v.s.
  • In stage III patients, there was also significant difference between the two groups with regard to the incidence of liver metastasis (18.9% vs 27.3%, P=0.01), 5-year disease-free survival (70.2% vs 52.0%, P=0.0076), 5-year overall survival (80.3% vs 69.5%, P=0.020) and the median survival time (40.1± 4.6 months vs 36.3 ± 3.2 months, P=0.03).
  • In the PHRAC arm, the risk ratio of recurrence was 0.63 (95% CI, 0.51-0.79, P=0.0001), of death was 0.50(95% CI, 0.32-0.67; P=0.005), and of liver metastasis was 0.70 (95% CI, 0.52-0.86; p=0.01).
  • Toxicities, such as hepatic toxicity and leucocyte decreasing, were mild and could be cured with medicine.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative hepatic and regional arterial chemotherapy, in combination with surgical resection, could be able to reduce and delay the occurrence of liver metastasis and therefore improve survival rate in patients with stage III colorectal cancer.

  • Initial Phase 2 tumor response data using the optimal biological dose (OBD) are now presented.
  • METHODS: Patients with heavily pretreated, progressing liver mCRC received 4 doses of NV1020 (1 X10<sup>8</sup> pfu) by weekly hepatic artery infusion followed by two cycles of conventional chemotherapy.
  • Best response observed with CT was 55% (1 CR, 1 PR, 10 SD) and 59% (5 PR, 8 SD) with PET.
  • Response did not correlate with initial tumor size, SUV, or CEA, with time since primary resection, pre- or post NV1020 chemotherapy type.
  • CONCLUSIONS: NV1020 stabilizes liver metastases in highly advanced mCRC and may sensitize tumors to salvage chemotherapy resulting in extended overall survival.

  • [Title] Robotic radiosurgery of liver metastases of solid tumors.
  • : e15049 Background: The number of patients (pts) suffering from isolated liver metastases is growing.
  • We here report the therapeutic efficacy of a robotic radiosurgery device for local control of liver metastases of solid tumors.
  • METHODS: Patients with liver metastases not qualifying for surgery were treated with single session radiosurgery (24 Gy) using robotic image-guided real-time tumor tracking.
  • For inclusion into the radiosurgery treatment protocol, tumor volumes had to be smaller than 80cc.
  • Metastases (n=27) originated from: colon (12), rectum (2), pancreas (2), lung (1), bladder (2), malignant melanoma (1), stomach (1), cholangiocellular carcinoma (2), breast (1), ovary (1), appendix (1) and endometrium (1).
  • Median tumor volume was 21cc (range 2.2-79.3).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Robotic radiosurgery with image-guided real-time tumor tracking of liver metastases is a new and promising treatment approach for pts not eligible for surgical resection and might enhance the possibilities of multidisciplinary oncological treatment concepts.

  • [Title] Association of copy number variants in colorectal liver metastases with 5-fluorouracil resistance.
  • : e14502 Background: Resistance to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) represents a major contributor to cancer-related mortality in advanced colorectal cancer patients.
  • We assessed TYMS and TP copy number in colorectal liver metastases from untreated patients and patients treated with 5-FU in an effort to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanisms for 5-FU resistance.
  • METHODS: Liver metastases were procured from 59 patients who had received 5-FU within 6 months preceding liver resection (treated samples) and from 46 patients who had received no 5-FU treatment in the 6 months prior to their liver resections (untreated samples).
  • DNA copy number of TYMS and TP was evaluated in frozen colorectal liver metastases using quantitative real time PCR.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Colorectal liver metastases treated with 5-FU exhibit DNA copy variants that may reduce 5- FU's efficacy.
  • Our data suggest that these genetic alterations may have important implications for the management of advanced colorectal cancer patients with recurrent disease.

  • [Title] Clinical outcome of resection of liver metastasis in patients with ovarian cancer.
  • : e16545 Background: Hepatic resection has become the standard treatment for resectable colorectal liver metastases.
  • However, in patients with ovarian cancer resectable liver metastases are rare and the issue is discussed controversially due to the lack of relevant published data.
  • The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of hepatic resections in patients with ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: Between 1991 and 2006 a total of 73 women with liver metastases underwent surgery for ovarian cancer.
  • In 40 patients a liver resection was performed.
  • RESULTS: Residual tumor after surgery was by far the strongest predictor for outcome.
  • Median survival in patients with no residual tumor was 65 months, < 0.5 cm 29 months, 1cm 6 months.
  • This data clearly show that macroscopically complete surgical cytoreductive therapy improves long-term survival in patients with ovarian cancer and liver metastases.
  • Therefore, liver resection should be always discussed if complete resection is achievable and should be part of the multimodal strategy in advanced ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) as salvage therapy for uveal melanoma (UM) hepatic metastases.
  • : 9066 Background: The liver is the first site of metastasis in >80% of patients with UM.
  • Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been used to control hepatic metastases, however, patients eventually progress through or experience complications related to TACE.
  • We report our results using SIRT as salvage therapy for patients with UM liver metastases who are no longer candidates for TACE.
  • METHODS: Patients with UM liver metastases previously treated with TACE were treated with SIRT.
  • Patients were followed 1-month post-SIRT for acute toxicity then every 3 months for tumor response evaluation and for complications of delayed toxicity.
  • Best radiographic tumor response was determined by MRI using RECIST criteria.
  • RESULTS: Five men and 7 women, ages 48-81 (median 65) with UM liver metastases were treated with SIRT after tumor progression post-TACE (n=9), complications of TACE (n=1) or patient preference (n=2).
  • Pretreatment whole liver tumor burdens were as follows: <25% (n=10), 25-50% (n=1) and >50% (n=1).
  • Patients had both hepatic lobes treated on separate occasions (n=7), one lobe (n=3) or whole liver (n=2) therapy.
  • Five patients had an increase in hepatic enzymes (Grade 1-4) at 1-month follow-up.
  • Best tumor response was as follows: CR (n=0), PR (n=0), SD (n=8), PD (n=4), with a median follow-up of 7.8 months (1.0-16.0).
  • The median time to liver progression was 7.0 months (1.0- 15.5).
  • Nine of the 12 patients, including 2 patients with >25% pretreatment tumor burden, died due to progression of liver disease (n=6), extrahepatic disease (n=1) or both (n=2).
  • Further investigation is warranted to determine if SIRT should be employed as a first line therapy for patients with UM liver metastases.

  • [Title] Value of preoperative staging of breast cancer patients using computed tomography to detect asymptomatic lung and liver metastasis.
  • : 1105 Background: Preoperative clinical staging in breast cancer patients is important to determine the most appropriate treatment plans and to predict prognosis for individual patients.
  • Identifying unexpected distant metastases in newly diagnosed breast cancer patients frequently alters initial treatment plans.
  • Routine imaging studies to detect lung or liver metastasis is not indicated in patients with early and operable breast cancer.
  • A recent study showed that routine use of chest radiograph and liver ultrasound does not provide much diagnostic benefit in early breast cancer patients.
  • METHODS: We aimed to investigate the value of preoperative computed tomography to detect asymptomatic liver and lung metastasis in breast cancer patients.
  • We performed preoperative CT for 667 breast cancer patients to detect lung and liver metastasis among 1,636 primary breast cancer patients who had been diagnosed and treated between January 2006 and December 2007 at Seoul National University Hospital.
  • RESULTS: CT showed abnormal findings (suspicious of metastasis or indeterminate nodules) in 78 patients (10.5%).
  • Among these, abnormal finding in 13 patients (1.7%) turned out to be true metastatic lesions.
  • There was no CT-detected lung or liver metastasis in patients with T1 tumor and 4 metastases in patients with T2 tumor.
  • There was no CT-detected lung or liver metastasis in patients with negative axillary lymph node metastasis.
  • When patients were classified according to the AJCC staging, CT-detected true metastatic lesions were only present in stage III patients (13 out of 173 patients, 7.5%).
  • The true metastatic lesions in lung or liver were all small sized nodules, ranging from 0.3cm to 1.2cm in largest diameters.
  • In seven patients, the CT-detected metastatic lesions were less than 1cm which is in contrast with the previous studies.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results demonstrated the lack of usefulness in performing routine CT exams to detect asymptomatic liver and lung metastasis in early breast cancer patients.

  • [Title] Overexpression of EphA4 gene and reduced expression of EphB2 gene: Correlation with liver metastasis in colorectal cancer.
  • This study examined the relations of EphA4 and EphB2 gene expression to clinicopathological factors, especially metastasis, in patients with colorectal cancer.
  • We studied surgical specimens of cancer tissue and adjacent normal mucosa obtained from 205 patients with untreated colorectal cancer.
  • The relative expression level of EphA4 mRNA was higher in the presence than in the absence of liver metastasis, whereas the relative expression levels of EphB2 mRNA were similar.
  • Analysis of the relations between clinicopathological features and gene expression showed that high expression of the EphA4 gene and low expression of the EphB2 gene correlated with liver metastasis.
  • Our results suggest that over-expression of the EphA4 gene and reduced expression of the EphB2 gene might promote liver metastasis in colorectal cancer.
  • Over-expression of the EphA4 gene and reduced expression of the EphB2 gene may thus be a useful predictor of liver metastasis in patients with colorectal cancer.

  • : e15010 Background: The aim of the study was to define the specific diagnostic accuracy of different imaging techniques in patients (pts) with resectable colorectal cancer liver metastasis (CLMs).
  • METHODS: Consecutive pts with, potentially resectable CLMs afferent to the Multidisciplinary Liver Team of Bologna Sant'Orsola Malpighi Hospital performed, in the 3 weeks prior to liver surgery, computed tomography scan (CT), magnetic resonance diffusion-weighted (MR-DW), and liver contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS1).
  • Liver contrast-enhanced ultrasonography was also performed intra-operatively (CEUS2).
  • RESULTS: From December 2007 to December 2008, twenty-nine out of 50 pts enrolled in the PROMETEO study underwent liver resection.
  • The pt characteristics were: 18 (62%) males, 11 (38%) females; 18 (62%) synchronous metastasis, 11 (38%) metachronous metastasis; 15 (51.7%) neoadjuvant chemotherapy; 7 (24.1%) previous liver surgery; 3 (10.3%) previous loco-regional treatment.
  • Ninety-three liver lesions were resected; the median number lesions per patient was 2 (range 1- 10).
  • Five lesions at pathological examination were non-metastasis (1 hamartoma, 1 steatosis, 1 giant-cell reaction, 2 necrosis).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results show that CT, CEUS1 and MR-DW have a good accuracy in the detection of liver metastasis in patients who are candidates for resection.

  • [Title] The role of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in detection of liver metastases from colorectal cancer: A prospective monocentric study.
  • : e15105 Background: Up to 15-25% of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) will develop metacronous liver metastases during the follow up.
  • The management and prognosis of these patients depend heavily on the early detection of metastases.
  • The introduction of second generation ultrasound contrast agents have improved the ability of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in detecting and characterizing liver lesions, showing that its accuracy is comparable to that of spiral CT and MRI with a liver contrast agent, with a cost and a time saving.
  • We tested the sensitivity and specificity of CEUS in detecting liver metastases compared with the standard imaging modalities used in the follow up of CRC.
  • METHODS: We conducted a prospective study considering all patients with a diagnosis of CRC in high risk stage II, stage III or with a previous metastasectomy of the liver.
  • In order to detect possible metastases, the patients were followed with a follow-up schedule including a six-monthly ultrasonography alternated to an annual CT, and a six-monthly CEUS with SonoVue contrast agent for the first 3 years.
  • RESULTS: From January 1<sup>st</sup> to December 2008 we executed 60 CEUS, identifying thirteen suspected liver lesions.
  • 10/13 were confirmed metastases by CT, MRI or TC/PET.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The clinical value of CEUS as a reliable alternative to CT or MRI in characterizing focal liver lesions has been expressed in various documents and guidelines.

  • : e15015 Background: About 80% of patients (pts) presenting colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) are initially unresectable.
  • Efficacy of hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) of oxaliplatin with systemic 5-Fluorouracil and leucovorin (LV5FU2) in with unresectable CRLM was previously demonstrated.
  • Eighty-seven pts were selected from a prospective database Results: Hepatic arterial infusion was delivered after previous systemic chemotherapy failure in 69 pts (80%).
  • Main criterion for unresectability was massive liver involvement (80%).
  • After a median follow-up of 75 months [24-118], intra-hepatic recurrence occurred in 10 pts.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hepatic artery infusion of oxaliplatin and systemic LV5FU2 increase the resectability rate in pts with advance CRLM even after previous systemic chemotherapy failure.

  • [Title] The anatomic localization of circulating tumor cells and the immediate impact of surgery and radiofrequency ablation.
  • : e22004 Background: There are few data on the impact of immediate and differing surgical interventions on circulating tumor cells (CTCs), nor their compartmentalization or localization in different anatomic vascular sites.
  • METHODS: CTCs from consecutive patients with colorectal liver metastases were quantitated prior to and immediately after open surgery, laparoscopic resection, open radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or percutaneous RFA.
  • For individuals undergoing open surgery, either hepatic resections or open RFA, CTCs were examined in both systemic and portal circulation by measuring CTCs in samples derived from the peripheral vein, an artery, the portal vein and hepatic vein.
  • RESULTS: A total of 29 consecutive patients with colorectal liver metastases were included with a median age of 55 (range 30 - 88 years).
  • CTCs were localized to the hepatic portosystemic macrocirculation with significantly greater numbers than in the systemic vasculature.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical resection of metastases but not RFA decreases CTC levels.
  • In patients with colorectal liver metastases, CTCs are localized to the hepatic (and probably pulmonary) macrocirculations.
  • This may explain why metastases in sites other than the liver and lungs, are infrequently observed in cancer.

  • [Title] Use of CXCR4 as a prognostic marker for disease-specific survival and pattern of recurrence following resection of hepatic colorectal metastases.
  • : 11081 Background: Expression of the chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CCR7 has been associated with metastases and poor prognosis in primary tumors but their relevance in colorectal liver metastases (CLM) is unclear.
  • This study examines the relationship between tumor chemokine receptor expression, pattern of recurrence and outcome after resection of hepatic metastases.
  • METHODS: Eighty patients with metastases from colon or rectal primary tumors who underwent a R<sub>0</sub> partial hepatectomy from February 2002 to April 2004 were studied prospectively.
  • Immunohistochemical staining was performed on the formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues of hepatic metastases using antibodies specific for CXCR4, CXCL12 and CCR7.
  • Positive expression of CXCR4, CXCL12 and CCR7 was seen in 49 (61%), 23 (29%) and 48 (60%) of tumor specimens, respectively.
  • CCR7 and CXCL12 expression, hepatic artery infusion pump chemotherapy, systemic chemotherapy and site of primary disease did not influence DSS or RFS.
  • Fifty-three (68%) of the patients recurred; 11 with liver only recurrences, 25 with lung only recurrences and 18 with multiple sites of recurrences.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CXCR4 expression in colorectal hepatic metastases adds prognostic information with regards to DSS, RFS and patterns of recurrence and may play role in clinical decision making regarding chemotherapy and surgical interventions.

  • [Title] A phase II clinical trial utilizing maximum medical and surgical cytoredutive treatments for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer to the liver.
  • Combination chemotherapy with surgical cytoreduction for patients with liver metastases are evaluated in a phase II clinical trial.
  • METHODS: Patients with newly diagnosed mCRC to the liver or recurrent CRC after 5FU failure were consented to receive further chemotherapy with at least irinotecan-based chemotherapy, oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy, and with the intention to treat the liver metastases with either RFA and/or liver resection between chemotherapy regimens whenever possible.
  • There were eleven patients who underwent RFA of at least one liver metastasis.
  • There were ten patients who underwent liver resection.
  • One patient underwent both RFA and liver resection at two different times.
  • CONCLUSIONS: OS was improved in mCRC patients or recurrent CRC patients who had potentially ablatable or resectable liver lesions at the time of their diagnosis and who were treated with available aggressive medical and surgical therapies.

  • [Title] Concordance of K-Ras status between colorectal cancer (CRC) primaries and related metastatic samples considering clinicopathological features.
  • : 4053 Background: K-Ras mutations in CRC primaries may predict resistance to anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) monoclonal antibodies, but we don´t know its behaviour in metastatic tissue.
  • 1) Evaluate the grade of concordance of K-Ras status between primary and related metastatic samples 2) Establish a correlation between k-ras status and individual clinicopathological features Methods: K-ras mutations were retrospectively analysed in primary tumours of 124 patients and 138 related metastatic sites.
  • Sites of metastases were liver (115 samples,83.3%) and lung (23 samples,16.7%).
  • We analyzed K-Ras point mutations in codons 12 and 13 by direct DNA sequencing from paraffin-embedded tumour and studied its relation with 13 clinicopathological features Results: K-Ras mutation was observed in 42(33.6%) primary tumours and in 52(39.1%) related metastatic sites, being the grade of concordance between primary and metastatic sites of 93% (95% CI: 97.5-88.3%).
  • Discordance was observed in 9 (7%) patients: in 2, K-Ras status was wild type in metastatic site and expressed a mutational pattern in the primary tumour; vice versa, in 7, the mutation status was detected in the metastases meanwhile primary tumour was wild type.
  • We also found statistically significative differences in mutation patterns regarding the site of the metastasic tissue: K-ras mutations were detected in 13 lung samples (61.9%) and in 39 liver samples (34.8%) (p=0.028).
  • No other relation with clinicopathological data was detected Conclusions: With this observational analysis, we confirm the high concordance (superior to 90%) between primary and related metastatic sites in terms of K-Ras status; for the first time, we have reported a higher mutational pattern in lung metastases than in liver disease, founds that may have important relevance regarding clinical/treatment decisions.

  • [Title] Outcome of colon cancer patients with synchronous metastases.
  • : 4029 Background: Metastatic colon cancer patients may undergo chemotherapy without colon surgery.
  • METHODS: Consecutive patients [N=228, mean age (sd) 64 (12) yrs, median follow-up 20 mths;84 females] treated in 6 teaching hospitals received chemotherapy for metastatic colonic cancer, either as the first step, or after surgery.
  • RESULTS: 105 patients with colon cancer and synchronous metastatsis underwent colon surgery prior to chemotherapy (68 males, mean age 64 yrs) when 123 patients were treated first by chemotherapy ± biotherapy (76 males, mean age 63 yrs).
  • By univariate analysis, following factors were significantly associated with PFS: surgery first 25.5 (18.6 - 32.5) vs chemotherapy first 18.3 (14.7 - 21.9) mths p = 0.006; curative surgery: yes 35.7 (29.6 - 41.8) vs no 18.4 (15.6 - 21.2) mths p < 0.001; tumour histological differentiation : no : 13.4 (6.2 - 20.6) vs well : 24.7 (20.4 - 29.1) mths p<0.001; synchronous metastases: liver only 25.5 (20.5 - 30.6) vs peritonea&nodes : 18.4 (10.6 - 26.1) vs pulmonary & other sites : 16.5 (14.7 - 18.3) mths p < 0.0001; need for colonic stent: yes 16.4 (9.3 - 23.5) vs no 23.9 (21.1 - 26.7) months p < 0.0001; antiangiogenic drug: yes 36.6 (28.7 - 44.5) vs no : 20.7 (18.3 - 23.1) p = 0.033.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Colon surgery before chemotherapy plus bevacizumab appears to be the more appropriate choice, and associated with longer PFS, especially for those patients with well differentiated tumours and synchronous liver metastases.

  • INTRODUCTION: In this study, our aim was to proceed with the first study of our patients by evaluating different metastatic tumor to the liver to check whether, after debulking the tumor with radiofrequency ablation (RFA), the chemotherapy, could increase the survival in these patients as a pilot study before applying alternative therapies in the future.
  • All other patients are still alive, although 2 experienced hepatic recurrences.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The 11 patients in this series showed that RFA combined with chemotherapy is a viable therapeutic choice for patients with cancer that has metastasized to the liver.

  • [Title] Use of a targeted oncolytic poxvirus, JX-594, in patients with refractory primary or metastatic liver cancer: a phase I trial.
  • BACKGROUND: JX-594 is a targeted oncolytic poxvirus designed to selectively replicate in and destroy cancer cells with cell-cycle abnormalities and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-ras pathway activation.
  • We aimed to assess intratumoral injection of JX-594 in patients with refractory primary or metastatic liver cancer.
  • METHODS: Between Jan 4, 2006, and July 4, 2007, 14 patients with histologically confirmed refractory primary or metastatic liver tumours (up to 10.9 cm total diameter) that were amenable to image-guided intratumoral injections were enrolled into this non-comparative, open-label, phase I dose-escalation trial (standard 3x3 design; two to six patients for each dose with 12-18 estimated total patients).
  • Patients were monitored after treatment for at least 48 h in hospital and for at least 4 weeks as out-patients.
  • Adverse event-monitoring according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria (version 3) and standard laboratory toxicity grading for haematology, liver and renal function, coagulation studies, serum chemistry, and urinalysis were done.
  • FINDINGS: Of 22 patients with liver tumours who were assessed for eligibility, eight patients did not meet inclusion criteria.
  • Therefore, 14 patients, including those with hepatocellular, colorectal, melanoma, and lung cancer, were enrolled.
  • INTERPRETATION: Intratumoral injection of JX-594 into primary or metastatic liver tumours was generally well-tolerated.

  • [Title] Hepatic artery adjuvant chemotherapy for patients having resection or ablation of colorectal cancer metastatic to the liver.
  • BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer metastatic to the liver, when technically feasible, is resected with a moderate chance of cure.
  • The most common site of failure after resection is within the remaining liver.
  • With this pattern of clinical failure in mind and in order to enhance survival, chemotherapy has been delivered directly to the liver post resection via the hepatic artery.
  • OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of post hepatic resection hepatic artery chemotherapy on overall survival.
  • Secondary objectives include adverse events related to the chemotherapy, the risk of intra-hepatic tumour recurrence and tumour free survival.
  • SEARCH STRATEGY: Randomised trials were sought in MEDLINE; the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials; the Cochrane Hepato-Biliary Group Controlled Trials Register; and through contact of trial authors and reference lists using key words: Colorectal, cancer, hepatic metastases, hepatic artery, chemotherapy.
  • SELECTION CRITERIA: Trials in which patients having resection of colorectal cancer metastatic to the liver were randomised either to hepatic artery chemotherapy or any alternative treatment.
  • No significant advantage was found in the meta-analysis for hepatic artery chemotherapy measuring overall survival and calculating survival based upon "intention to treat" (lnHR = 0.0848; favouring the control group, 95% confidence interval = -0.1189 to 0.2885, or a Hazard Ratio of 1.089, an 8.9% survival advantage for the control group, 95% CI of the HR = 0.887-1.334).
  • Adverse events related to the hepatic artery therapy were common, including five therapy related deaths.
  • Intra-hepatic recurrence was more frequent in the control group (97 patients versus 43 in the HAI group), though denominators are not reported, and additional outcomes could not be subjected to a combined analysis.
  • AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: Though recurrence in the remaining liver happened less in the hepatic artery chemotherapy group, overall survival was not improved, and even favoured the control group, though not significantly.

  • We describe a patient with a well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor metastatic to the liver with refractory hepatic encephalopathy and normal liver function tests.
  • The patient's mental status returned to baseline after three hepatic artery embolization procedures.
  • In patients with a primary or metastatic well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor whose refractory hepatic encephalopathy is due to portosystemic shunting (rather than global hepatic dysfunction secondary to tumor burden), hepatic artery embolization can be performed safely and effectively.

  • [Title] Limited value of 18F-FDG PET/CT and S-100B tumour marker in the detection of liver metastases from uveal melanoma compared to liver metastases from cutaneous melanoma.
  • PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the value of (18)F-FDG PET/CT and S-100B tumour marker for the detection of liver metastases from uveal melanoma in comparison to liver metastases from cutaneous melanoma.
  • METHODS: A retrospective evaluation was conducted of 27 liver metastases in 13 patients with uveal melanoma (UM) (mean age: 56.8, range: 30-77) and 43 liver metastases in 14 patients (mean age: 57.9, range: 40-82) with cutaneous melanoma (CM) regarding size and FDG uptake by measuring the maximum standardized uptake value (SUV(max)).
  • In nine patients liver metastases were further evaluated histologically regarding GLUT-1 and S-100 receptor expression and regarding epithelial or spindle cell growth pattern.
  • RESULTS: Of 27 liver metastases in 6 of 13 patients (46%) with UM, 16 (59%) were FDG negative, whereas all liver metastases from CM were positive.
  • Liver metastases from UM showed significantly (p < 0.001) lower SUV(max) (mean: 3.5, range: 1.5-13.4) compared with liver metastases from CM (mean: 6.6, range: 2.3-15.3).
  • In four of six (66.7%) patients with UM and liver metastases S-100B was normal and in two (33.3%) increased.
  • All PET-negative liver metastases were detectable by morphological imaging (CT or MRI).
  • S-100B was abnormal in 13 of 14 patients with liver metastases from CM.
  • Histological work-up of the liver metastases showed no obvious difference in GLUT-1 or S-100 expression between UM and CM liver metastases.
  • The minority (36%) of patients with UM had extrahepatic metastases and the majority (86%) of patients with CM had extrahepatic metastases, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: FDG PET/CT and serum S-100B are not sensitive enough for the detection of liver metastases from UM, whereas liver metastases from cutaneous melanoma are reliably FDG positive and lead regularly to increased S-100B tumour markers.
  • The reason for the lower FDG uptake in UM liver metastases remains unclear.
  • We recommend to perform combined contrast-enhanced PET/CT in order to detect FDG-negative liver metastases from UM.

  • [Title] [Association of TP53 gene polymorphisms with genetic susceptibility to liver metastases of colorectal cancer].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible association between the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (C-8343G, C-1863T and R72P) in TP53 gene and susceptibility to liver metastases of colorectal cancer (CRC) in a Chinese population.
  • METHODS: The genotypes of each SNP in TP53 gene were determined by either TaqMan assays or PCR-based restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) method in 121 colorectal cancer patients with liver metastases and sex-, age-matched 280 cases with nonmetastatic CRC as a control.
  • Odds ratios (ORs) for colorectal liver metastases and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) from unconditional logistic regression models were used to evaluate relative risks.
  • RESULTS: No significant association of C-8343G or C-1863T with colorectal liver metastases risk was observed.
  • However, the R allele of the TP53 R72P polymorphism was more frequently found in metastatic cases than in nonmetastatic cases (P= 0.037).
  • When compared with PP homozygotes, the ORs of metastases for RP heterozygotes was 2.21 (95% CI: 1.13-4.33), for RR homozygotes was 2.26 (95% CI: 1.03-4.94), and for carriers of the 72R allele (RP or RR genotype) was 2.22 (95% CI: 1.16-4.26).
  • Stratified analysis indicated that carrying the 72R allele had a more pronounced increase in colorectal liver metastases risk among patients with positive P53 expression tumors (OR= 3.28, 95% CI: 1.21-8.88), whereas no significantly increased metastases risk was found in patients with negative P53 expression tumors (OR= 1.37, 95% CI: 0.52-3.62).
  • CONCLUSION: The R allele of the TP53 R72P polymorphism may contribute to the etiology of liver metastases in CRC patients, particularly among those with positive P53 expression tumors.
  • Both TP53 C-8343G and C-1863T may be not associated with colorectal liver metastases risk.

  • [Title] Multimodality imaging can predict the metabolic response of unresectable colorectal liver metastases to radioembolization therapy with Yttrium-90 labeled resin microspheres.
  • Selective internal radiotherapy (SIRT) using Yttrium-90 labeled resin microspheres is increasingly used for the radioembolization of unresectable liver metastases of colorectal cancer (CRC).
  • The simulation of the dosimetry was performed by mathematically converting all liver voxel MAA-SPECT uptake values to the absolute Y(90) activity.
  • A total of 39 metastatic liver lesions were studied in eight evaluable patients.
  • The median (95% CI) simulated absorbed dose (Gy) was 29 Gy (1–98 Gy) and 66 Gy(32–159 Gy) in the poor (<50% TLG change) and the good responders (TLG change > 50%),respectively [DOSAGE ERROR CORRECTED].Using a simple cut-off value of 1 for the MAA-tumor-to-normal uptake ratio, a significant metabolic response was predicted with a sensitivity of 89% (17/19), a specificity of 65% (13/20), a positive predictive value of 71% (17/24) and a negative predictive value of 87% (13/15).

  • [Title] Intrahepatic bile duct dilatation due to liver metastases from colorectal carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to assess the association between colorectal liver metastases and intrahepatic bile duct dilatation and compare its frequency with the frequency of intrahepatic bile duct dilatation in other common noncolorectal metastases and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
  • The CT scans of the 2,226 patients were reviewed for the presence of liver metastases and masses, the presence of intrahepatic bile duct dilatation directly related to the masses, the size of the largest lesion, and the associated caliber of the dilated intrahepatic bile duct.
  • RESULTS: Of the 297 patients with colorectal liver metastases, 49 (16.5%) had intrahepatic bile duct dilatation, whereas of the 263 patients with noncolorectal liver metastases, only eight (3%) had dilated ducts.
  • Intrahepatic bile duct dilatation was present in significantly more patients with colorectal liver metastases (p < 0.05) than those with noncolorectal and HCC metastases.
  • The mean sizes of the lesions and mean caliber of the dilated bile duct from colorectal metastases, noncolorectal metastases, and HCC were 5.3, 3.9, and 5.6 cm, respectively, and 5.1, 4.6, and 4.8 mm, respectively.
  • Overall lesion size irrespective of diagnosis had no significant correlation with the probability of bile duct dilatation (p = 0.16; odds ratio = 1.08; 95% CI, 0.97-1.20).
  • The caliber of bile duct dilatation did not significantly differ among the three groups of patients by diagnosis (p = 0.70).
  • CONCLUSION: Colorectal liver metastases have a significantly higher tendency to cause intrahepatic bile duct dilatation than noncolorectal metastases and HCC due to the characteristic features, such as cholangiocarcinoma, of intrabiliary growth.
