2. Walker A: A European perspective on quality of life in old age. Eur J Ageing; 2005 Mar;2(1):2-12

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A European perspective on quality of life in old age.
  • This article focuses on the scientific study of quality of life in old age and summarises, on the one hand, what we know and, on the other, what further research is needed.
  • It consists of three main parts, with an extended introduction charting the recent evolution of a European perspective on ageing.
  • First of all, it emphasises the amorphous, multidimensional and complex nature of quality of life and the high level of inconsistency between scientists in their approach to this subject.
  • Secondly, the article summarises the main areas of consensus about quality of life in old age-its dynamic multifaceted nature, the combination of life course and immediate influences, the similarities and differences in the factors determining quality of life between younger and older people, the most common associations with quality of life and the likely variations between groups, and the powerful role of subjective self-assessment.
  • Thirdly, the main research priorities and gaps in knowledge are outlined, together with the key methodological issues which must be tackled if comparative, interdisciplinary research on quality of life is to develop further.
  • The main sources for the article are two European Framework Programme projects-the one a small five-country comparison and the other a large multidimensional project which, among other things, has been developing recommendations for research on quality of life in old age and included an extensive literature review on this topic.
  • The article also draws on the recently completed UK Growing Older Programme of research on extending quality of life.

  • [Title] Expression of different isoforms of the B-cell mutator activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) in BCR-ABL1-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients.
  • : 7049 Since the activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) enzyme can target non-immunoglobulin (Ig) genes and may even act as a genome-wide mutator, we investigated AID expression in BCR-ABL1-positive ALL and in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) at the time of progression to blast crisis.
  • On the 61 de novo adult BCR-ABL1-positive ALL patients (pts), AID mRNA and protein were detected in 36 (59%); their expression correlated with BCR-ABL1 transcript levels and disappeared after treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors at the time of remission.
  • AID expression was also found in lymphoid blast crisis CML (50%), but not in myeloid lineage or in chronic phase CML.
  • Our findings show that BCR-ABL1-positive ALL cells aberrantly express different isoforms of AID that can act as mutator outside the Ig gene loci in promoting genetic instability in leukemia cells.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The management of dysphagia in esophageal cancer patients undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy: Is invasive tube feeding required?
  • : 9613 Background: The dysphagia commonly associated with esophageal cancer often interferes with patient tolerance of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • Surgical or endoscopic invasive tube feeding (ITF - gastroscopy/jejunostomy/stent) is a commonly employed strategy to maintain nutritional support however it can cause significant morbidity in its own right.
  • We sought to determine if a strategy of careful dietary counseling and appropriately-timed neoadjuvant chemotherapy can obviate the need for ITF.
  • METHODS: Pts undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy (TAX/CDDP/5FU Q3 weeks x3) for esophageal or GEJ adenocarcinoma at a single institution from 3/07-7/08 were identified from a prospective database.
  • All received dietary counseling and were closely monitored for signs/ symptoms of malnutrition with serial (baseline, after 1<sup>st</sup> cycle, pre-surgery) Body Mass Index (BMI), albumin, dysphagia scores (0 best - 4 worse), and quality of life (FACT-E).
  • We assessed the response of dysphagia and nutritional status to neoadjuvant treatment and the need for ITF.
  • Data presented as median (range) or mean (±SD), paired t-test or Wilcoxon signed ranks test determined significance.
  • RESULTS: 25 pts received neoadjuvant chemotherapy and significant dysphagia (score 2-4) was found in 14.
  • Dysphagia scores improved in all 14 (all results in Table 1 ), and 10/13 improved after the first cycle.
  • No patient required ITF.
  • QoL as assessed by the FACT-E improved in 13/14 patients.
  • A small decrease in BMI was noted, however serum albumin did not significantly decrease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Appropriately timed neoadjuvant chemotherapy with a highly effective regimen rapidly restores normal swallowing, maintains nutritional status, and obviates the need for ITF in patients with significant dysphagia from esophageal adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : 7573 Background: The malignant behavior of small lung adenocarinomas (AD), which have been detected with increasing frequency recently, has not yet been clearly evaluated, and an understanding of this biological characteristic is vital for selecting the appropriate therapeutic strategy.
  • RESULTS: Examination of tumor aggressiveness based on the presence of lymphatic, vascular and pleural invasion, and of nodal metastasis, showed that maxSUV, BAC ratio, TDR, and GGO ratio, in the order, can reflect the malignancy grade.
  • MaxSUV and BAC ratio were also valuable prognostic predictors of the disease-free survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A higher maxSUV reflects an aggressive malignant behavior of cT1N0M0 ADs, independently of BAC component.

  • [Title] Cardiovascular toxicity follwing sunitinib therapy in metastatic renal cell cancer: A multicenter analysis.
  • We reviewed cardiac adverse events in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who underwent treatment with this agent.
  • Among these 17 patients, 12 (70.6%) also experienced left-ventricular systolic (LVEF) dysfunction; in all, 33 of the 175 patients (18.9%) developed some degree of cardiac abnormality, of which 12 were of classified as grade 3 LVEF dysfunction and/or congestive heart failure (CHF) (6.9%).
  • A significant univariate association for predictors of CHF were history of hypertension (p=0.008), history of coronary heart disease (p=0.0005) and prior treatment with an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE) (p= 0.04).
  • Multivariate analysis suggested that a history of coronary artery disease (OR 18, 95% CI, 4-160 p 0.005) and hypertension (OR 3, 95% CI, 1.5-80 p 0.04) were the only significant independent predictors of CHF.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients undergoing sunitinib, especially those with a previous history of hypertension and coronary heart disease, are at increased risk for cardiovascular events and should be monitored for exacerbations of their hypertension and for evidence of LVEF dysfunction during treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Association between HER2/neu overexpression and calcifications in breast cancer.
  • : 579 Background: HER-2/neu overexpression is an important parameter that influences prognosis and treatment for breast cancer.
  • The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between HER-2/neu overexpression and calcifications identified by either mammographic imaging or histologic examination.
  • METHODS: A retrospective review of the prospectively collected database was performed to evaluate the mammographic and histologic characteristics of all cases of invasive breast cancers diagnosed between 2003 and 2008.
  • HER-2/neu positivity was defined as either overexpression by FISH analysis or 3+ staining on immunohistochemistry.
  • RESULTS: Of 502 invasive cancers, 165 (33%) had calcifications on mammography and 337 (67%) did not.
  • HER-2/neu positivity was found in 63 (38%) of the calcification cases and 40 (12%) of the non-calcified cases (p < 0.001).
  • This association persisted across all age groups and races and was independent of tumor size, nodal status, or hormone receptor status.
  • Calcifications seen histologically also correlated with HER-2/neu overexpression, but the relationship was more complex.
  • Among 155 cases with histologic calcifications seen within a ductal intraepithelial neoplasia (DIN) component, there were 45 (29%) that were HER-2/neu positive, compared with 67/414 (16%) that did not have calcifications within DIN (p < 0.001).
  • If the calcifications were only within invasive tumor, the rate of HER-2/neu overexpression was less, 9/63 (14%).
  • Univariate analysis demonstrated that tumor grade, necrosis, lymphovascular invasion and hormone receptor negativity were significantly associated with HER-2/neu overexpression (all p < 0.01).
  • Multivariate logistic regression showed only the following factors to be significantly associated with HER-2/neu overexpression: grade of invasive tumor, presence of necrosis, progesterone receptor negativity in either the invasive or the in situ component, and mammographic calcifications.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Recognition of the strong association between HER-2/neu overexpression and mammographic calcifications may have clinical usefulness and could lead to a better understanding of the underlying tumor biology of this important tumor marker.

  • [Title] Correlation of CA-125 and RECIST evaluation in recurrent ovarian cancer (ROC): Results from a randomized phase III study of trabectedin (T) with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) versus PLD alone.
  • : 5550 Background: OVA-301, an open-label, multicenter, randomized phase III study comparing the combination of T and PLD to PLD alone in 672 ovarian cancer patients, showed significant prolongation in Progression-Free Survival (PFS) and higher Objective Response (OR) in the combination arm (T-PLD) by three separate assessments, investigator assessment (IA), independent radiology (IR) and oncology review (IO).
  • The purpose of this analysis is to examine:.
  • 1) the impact of early changes in CA-125 over the subsequent best OR by RECIST;.
  • 2) the concordance between best OR determined by CA-125 and RECIST;.
  • 3) the value of CA-125 to predict radiological response.
  • METHODS: Tumor assessments by imaging and CA-125 were performed at baseline, and every 8 weeks during study in both arms.
  • Radiological tumor assessment, regardless of CA-125 changes, determined the study conduct.
  • Early CA-125 changes were those assessed at the first and second evaluation.
  • Analyses were based on "all randomized patients."
  • RESULTS: Response rate by RECIST (IR)/CA-125 was 28%/48% for T-PLD vs. 19%/33% for PLD.
  • The association between CA-125 and RECIST response was stronger for IA relative to IR/IO, with 79% concordance for both arms, 65% overall positive predictive value (PPV) and 89% negative predictive value (NPV) for IA and 74%/75% concordance, 46%/49% PPV and 93%/92% NPV for IR/IO.
  • Early CA-125 changes were assessed in 514 patients.
  • Early ≥25% CA-125 decreases in the first/second evaluation occurred in 85%/95% of RECIST responders in the T-PLD arm and in 81/82% responders treated with PLD.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The predictive value of CA-125 response was high and similar in both arms.
  • The addition of T to PLD resulted in superior efficacy in this patient population as assessed by IA, IR and IO, with a favorable trend for CA-125 response assessment.
  • RECIST response was preceded by a significant CA-125 decrease in a high proportion of patients.

  • : e15090 Background: The objective was to evaluate the effect of preoperative administration of TACE and chemotherapy on hepatic injury and on postoperative outcome in patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRM) Methods: Seventy seven patients underwent hepatic resection for CRM between January 1999 and December 2007 were evaluated.
  • Pathologic review of the non-tumorous liver was performed using established criteria for steatosis, steatohepatitis, and sinusoidal dilation.
  • The effect of two different treatment and hepatotoxicity on postoperative outcome was analyzed.
  • RESULTS: 40 patients (51.9%) received no preoperative treatment, where 27 patients (35.0%) received preoperative chemotherapy, 10 patients (12.9%) performed TACE before resection.
  • The median duration of TACE group was 4.5 months (range, 1-6 months), where the median duration of chemotherapy group was 5 cycles (range, 2-9 cycles).
  • Chemotherapy regimen consisted of oxalipaltin plus FU (29.9%), or irinotecan plus FU (5.2%).
  • On pathologic analysis, 36 patients (46.7%) had steatosis, 24 (31.1%) had sinusoidal dilation, and 8 (10.3%) had steatohepatitis.
  • TACE was associated with steatosis, steatohepatosis and postoperative complication, when compared with no chemotherapy (all p<0.05).Among chemotherapy group,Oxaliplatin was associated with steatohepatitis compared with no preoperative treatment (13.0% v 0%, respectively; p<0.05).
  • Irinotecan was associated with steatohepatitis compared with no preoperative treatment (50% v 0%, respectively; p=0.0006).
  • Patients with preoperative chemotherapy had increased steatohepatitis compared with no treatment group (18.5% v 0%, respectively, p=0.0008), the postoperative morbility rate in preoperative chemotherapy (25.9%) was double that of the no-chemotherapy (12.5%), but this difference was not statistically significant (p=0.20).
  • Preoperative chemotherapy was also not associated with 90-day mortality.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative TACE treatment may cause pathological liver injury, and increase postoperative morbility after hepatic surgery.
  • The standard preoperative chemotherapy regimen with Oxaliplatin or Irinotecan may increase steatohepatis.
  • No significant financial relationships to disclose.

  • : 5092 Background: Papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) is the second most malignant histologic subtype in nephrectomy specimens.
  • Synchronous distant metastases in the entire group occurred in 58 (8.7%) patients and 69 (11.2%) others developed metastatic disease during follow-up.
  • Patients with ≥pT3 were at high risk for metastases (50.6%), while metastatic disease associated with ≤pT2 tumors occurred in 7.8% (p < 0.0001).
  • Once metastatic disease was present, prognosis was poor (5-year CSS: 7.2%).
  • Clinical and radiologic follow-ups should be offered in frequent intervals to patients with venous thrombus and/or locally advanced disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Effect of the apoptosis signal ceramide (C6) on antitumor activity of chemotherapeutic agents in SCID mice.
  • : e14642 Introduction: The ceramides are a major signaling pathway for apoptosis in cells undergoing stress or exposure to chemotherapy.
  • We have demonstrated synergistic anti-tumor effects of combining C6 ceramide with paclitaxel, doxorubicin and cisplatin and are currently addressing the question; does C6 augment activity of all the major classes of drugs?
  • Backround: Currently the in vivo anti-tumor effects of C6 with oxaliplatin and Gemcitabine.
  • METHODS: Invivo experiments SCID/Beige/Taconic male mice inoculated S.C. with 2X106 L3.6 pancreatic cells were treated 4 days post tumor implant with trice weekly (3x/wk) intraperitoneal (IP) injections of paclitaxel (P) 3.0 m/kg, oxaliplatin (OX) 2.5 mg/kg, cisplatin (CP) 2.5 mg/kg, Gemcitabine (Gem) 10 mg/kg with/without ceramide 10 mg/kg.
  • Mice were observed for 6 weeks and were autopsied when near death. (All controls died by 3<sup>rd</sup> week).
  • Maximum tumor volume, tumor weight; body weight and survival were recorded.
  • RESULTS: Combination with C6 ceramide augmented the tumor reduction obtained by chemotherapy alone by 57% (while preserving body weight), and increased 6 week survival from 0% (Chemotherapy alone) to 60% with combined therapy.
  • Mean survival was increased from 25 to 37 days.
  • Although short term immunohistochemical studies suggested enhanced apoptosis and increased caspase 3 production by ceramide combinations it may actually be independent of capase activation and mitochondrial activation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Combination therapy with the apoptotic signal C6 ceramide significantly enhanced the anti-tumor effects of the anti microtubule, alkylating Paclitaxel a DNA interculating antibiotic (doxorubicin) the alkylating/DNA adducting agents (cisplatin, oxaliplatin) and an anti metabolite (gemcitabine) suggesting generation of broad based apoptotic signals which interact with major cancer drug classes (tested).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Angiogenic biomaker study in osteosarcoma.
  • : e21507 Background: This study represents a prospective assessment of angiogenesis genes mRNA expression in tumors and blood from patients treated with pre- and post-operative Brazilian osteosarcoma protocol (GCBTO 2006) that introduce metronomic chemotherapy (anti-angiogenic) in order to try to increase survival of osteosarcoma patients.
  • METHODS: Tumor samples from 27 patients were analyzed before and after chemotherapy to determine VEGFA, VEGFR1, VEGFR2, PDGFC, SDF1 and TSP1 genes expression profile by Quantitative Real Time PCR.
  • Also, blood samples of these patients were investigated pre- and post-chemotherapy and at the end of high-dose chemotherapy trying to evaluate potential for proangiogenic factors and antiangiogenic factor (TSP1) which could be used to monitor treatment activity.
  • RESULTS: Of all six genes studied pre- and post- chemotherapy, in tumor samples, only SDF1 and VEGFR2 were underexpressed.
  • SDF1 gene has the lowest expression at all.
  • In tumor samples, TSP1 and VEGFA expression was higher than SDF1, VEGFR2 and PDGFC expression in biopsies and surgeries (P=0.001).
  • VEGFR1 expression was higher than VEGFR2 expression (P=0.001).
  • PDGFC and VEGFR1 overexpression were associated with necrosis grade I and II (Huvos score) (P=0.005).
  • VEGFA and TSP1 were overexpressed in 96% and 92% of surgery samples, respectively.
  • In blood samples from biopsy, surgery and end of treatment there were no statistically significant changes in the marker genes expression.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The study suggests an association between PDGFC and VEGFR1 overexpression and lower grade necrosis.
  • TSP1 and VEGFA were the most expressed genes in all tumor samples but TSP1 was lower than VEGFA in biopsies and VEGFA was lower than TSP1 in surgery (P=0.001).
  • Although VEGFR2 is the primary receptor of VEGF, VEGFR1 was the most expressed VEGF receptor.

39. Merrell RT, Lachance DH, Anderson SK: Seizures in patients with glioma treated with phenytoin and levetiracetam. J Clin Oncol; 2009 May 20;27(15_suppl):e13020

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Seizures in patients with glioma treated with phenytoin and levetiracetam.
  • : e13020 Background: Seizures are common in patients with glioma.
  • Phenytoin, traditionally used for these patients, can be associated with intolerable side effects and potentially alters the metabolism of chemotherapeutic agents.
  • Levetiracetam has more favorable pharmacokinetics facilitating ease of use with fewer side effects and is nonenzyme inducing.
  • We compare seizure outcomes and side effects in patients with glioma treated with phenytoin and levetiracetam monotherapy.
  • METHODS: Retrospective analysis of consecutive patients with glioma.
  • Subjects had at least one clinical seizure and had to be followed for 6 months.
  • Seizure outcomes and side effects were compared between cohorts treated with phenytoin or levetiracetam.
  • Seizure outcomes were measured by time to second seizure and seizure frequency.
  • RESULTS: 76 patients (34 female) with pathologically proven glioma and seizures were identified, 25 treated with phenytoin and 51 with levetiracetam.
  • 64% had grade 4 astrocytoma.
  • There was no difference in seizure outcome between the phenytoin and levetiracetam groups when comparing time to second seizure (p = 0.584), second seizure rates (p = 0.462), and average seizures per month (p = 0.776).
  • When adjusting for age, gender, type of seizure, type of glioma, and dosage using univariate and multivariate models there were no differences between the treatment groups and none of these covariates were statistically significant for explaining the second seizure rates between treatment groups (all p values >0.05).
  • The incidence of side effects in the levetiracetam group was 5.9% versus 20% in the phenytoin group (p = 0.106).
  • Additionally, 36.0% of the patients in the phenytoin group had dose adjustments not related to breakthrough seizures compared to only 9.8% in the levetiracetam group (p = 0.010).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, glioma patients treated with levetiracetam had similar seizure control as patients treated with phenytoin.
  • Patients treated with levetiracetam experienced fewer side effects and required fewer non seizure related dose adjustments than patients treated with phenytoin.
  • Levetiracetam is a safe, effective, and preferred alternative for seizure management in patients with glioma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Phase I study results of nanomolecular liposomal annamycin in refractory ALL.
  • : 7066 Background: There continues to be no effective second-line therapy for refractory AML or ALL and the cure rate with current therapy has not significantly improved in decades.
  • The first-line therapy for adult AML has remained the same 7 + 3 that it was a generation ago.
  • Annamycin was specifically synthesized to overcome MDR and to have little to no cardiac toxicity when given as a nanomolecular liposomal entity.
  • METHODS: We performed a phase I multi-center, open-label, MTD study of nanomolecular liposomal annamycin in patients with refractory ALL.
  • The secondary objective was to study the MDR-1 encoded P-1u70 glycoprotein expression in correlation with CD34 expression and MDR-1 MRP mRNA levels in refractory ALL patients before and after receiving liposomal annamycin.
  • RESULTS: Thirty patients were enrolled on the study.
  • The MTD was determined to be 150 mg/m2/day for 3 days.
  • Eight of the patients completed 1 cycle of the 3 days of treatment.
  • Of these 8 subjects, 5 (62%) had an efficacy signal.
  • All 5 completely cleared circulating blasts.
  • Three subjects also cleared bone marrow blasts.
  • Of these 3, 1 went on to a successful bone marrow transplant.
  • The other 2 had tumor lysis syndrome and unfortunately expired.
  • Other than the tumor lysis syndromes, there was only 1 SAE definitely related to the study drug which was a grade 3 mucositis but there were also 3 other SAEs of grade 3 or 4 mucositis probably related to the study drug which comprised the MTD determination.
  • There were no reports of cardiac toxicity.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Nanomolecular liposomal annamycin appears to be effective through its innate resistance to MDR even as a single agent in refractory adult ALL.
  • We are now testing it in a phase I study in children and young adults with refractory ALL or AML.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Properties of and Algorithms for Fitting Three-Way Component Models with Offset Terms.
  • : Prior to a three-way component analysis of a three-way data set, it is customary to preprocess the data by centering and/or rescaling them.
  • Harshman and Lundy (1984) considered that three-way data actually consist of a three-way model part, which in fact pertains to ratio scale measurements, as well as additive "offset" terms that turn the ratio scale measurements into interval scale measurements.
  • They mentioned that such offset terms might be estimated by incorporating additional components in the model, but discarded this idea in favor of an approach to remove such terms from the model by means of centering.
  • Then estimates for the three-way component model parameters are obtained by analyzing the centered data.
  • In the present paper, the possibility of actually estimating the offset terms is taken up again.
  • First, it is mentioned in which cases such offset terms can be estimated uniquely.
  • Next, procedures are offered for estimating model parameters and offset parameters simultaneously, as well as successively (i.e., providing offset term estimates after the three-way model parameters have been estimated in the traditional way on the basis of the centered data).
  • These procedures are provided for both the CANDECOMP/PARAFAC model and the Tucker3 model extended with offset terms.
  • The successive and the simultaneous approaches for estimating model and offset parameters have been compared on the basis of simulated data.
  • It was found that both procedures perform well when the fitted model captures at least all offset terms actually underlying the data.
  • The simultaneous procedures performed slightly better than the successive procedures.
  • If fewer offset terms are fitted than there are underlying the model, the results are considerably poorer, but in these cases the successive procedures performed better than the simultaneous ones.
  • All in all, it can be concluded that the traditional approach for estimating model parameters can hardly be improved upon, and that offset terms can sufficiently well be estimated by the proposed successive approach, which is a simple extension of the traditional approach.

  • [Title] Detection of locally advanced breast cancer in the I-SPY TRIAL (CALGB 150007/150012, ACRIN 6657) in the interval between routine screening.
  • : 1503 Background: It is assumed that most locally advanced breast cancers (LABC) could be detected at an earlier stage with routine screening.
  • However, LABCs may present between screens as interval cancers (IC).
  • ICs present at an earlier age, with higher grade, larger size, and are associated with lower survival, compared to screen-detected cancers (SDC), and comprise 17% of cancers from population-based screening programs.
  • We evaluated the screening history in patients with LABCs from the I SPY TRIAL, to determine the frequency of screening and ICs.
  • METHODS: Of 221 pts enrolled in the I-SPY TRIAL, a multisite neoadjuvant study for women with LABCs > 3cm in size, screening history and presentation were retrospectively collected for 154.
  • Two groups, screened (S), defined as a mammogram within 2 years, or non screened (NS), previous mammogram more than 2 years prior, were evaluated (Table).
  • The frequency of ICs at 1 and 2 years was determined in S pts.
  • Frequency of mammographically occult (MO) tumors was determined for all.
  • RESULTS: Of the total, 99 (64%) and 55 (36%) were NS and S, respectively.
  • Mean tumor size for all pts was 6.7cm.
  • Only 11 (20%) of S pts were SDCs and 44 (80%) were ICs, with 24 (63%) diagnosed within 1 year and 14 (37%) between 1 and 2 yrs of their last normal mammogram.
  • 24 (24%) NS patients were younger than the recommended screening age of 40; in the remaining 75 pts, 9 (12%) were MO.
  • Only 20% of IC tumors were MO.
  • ICs were of higher grade (44% vs 11% grade III), and tumor size (7.0cm vs 4.4cm) than their SDC counterparts.
  • 80% of cancers detected in I SPY were NKI70 gene test poor prognosis.
  • Relationship to breast density and subtype is currently being assessed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Women presenting with LABCs have a high likelihood (80%) of an IC.
  • This suggests that the growth rate of LABCs precludes early detection by conventional screening.
  • Understanding the biology of ICs will be important to develop better strategies for prevention and early detection.

  • [Title] Trabectedin for advanced sarcomas failing doxorubicin: Analysis of 189 unreported patients in a compassionate use program.
  • : 10574 Background: Between 2005 and 2008, 387 patients (pts) with advanced sarcoma failing doxorubicin were treated in a compassionate use program (ATU) of trabectedin in France using the standard 1.5mg/m2/CI 24h q21d regimen.
  • The purpose of this study was to assess the outcome of pts treated in this program.
  • METHODS: From 2005 to 2008, 87 centers (ctrs) included at least 1 pt in the ATU program.
  • Inclusion criteria were those of the EORTC trial (J Clin Oncol, 2005;23:5276), with no restriction on the previous number of lines.
  • A simple CRF with 22 items was used to collect pts characteristics and outcome.
  • One hundred eighty-nine pts files were collected as of December 20, 2008.
  • Univariate and multivariate analyses of prognostic factors was performed.
  • RESULTS: Two hundred thirty-five pts were included in the 17 ctrs in which >4 pts were treated.
  • Forty-four ctrs treated only 1 pt.
  • Fifty-two percent were female; major histological subgroups were leiomyosarcoma (29%) and liposarcoma (20%).
  • All pts had been treated with doxorubicin and ifosfamide, 3 (1.5%) in adjuvant setting only.
  • Trabectedin was given in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th line in metastatic phase in n=8, 69, 66, 42 pts respectively (median: 3rd line).
  • The median number of courses were 3 (range 1-24).
  • Best response reported were PR, n=15 (8%), SD, n=68 (36%) and PD, n=94 (50%), NE, n=11 (6%).
  • With a median follow-up of 805 days (d), median PFS and OS were 91 d and 309 d respectively.
  • 27/127 (20%) evaluable pts had to be hospitalized for treatment related side effects.
  • PFS was superior in myxoid liposarcoma (MyxLPS) (median 192 d vs 69 d, p=0.003), retroperitoneal sarcomas (median 104 d vs 69 d, p=0.006), and grade 1 tumors (median 141 d vs 70 d, p=0.01).
  • In multivariate analysis (Cox model), tumor site, grade 1, histotype were the only independent prognostic factors for PFS.
  • For OS, favorable prognostic factors in univariate analysis were histotypes (MyxLPS, MFH), grade 1 lesions, retroperitoneal site, no hospitalisation for toxicity (p<0.01 all) while Cox model identified female gender, tumor site, histotype as the only independent prognostic factors for OS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this compassionate use program for heavily pretreated pts with advanced sarcomas, trabectedin yielded PFS and OS close to those observed in phase II and III trial.
  • PFS and OS are superior in myxLPS, retroperitoneal sarcomas, and grade 1 tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] p53 as a marker of prognosis in African American (AA) women with breast cancer.
  • : e22119 Background: Prior reports suggest that p53 may be of prognostic value in AA women with breast cancer.
  • However, it remains to be determined whether p53 status would add prognostic value beyond the commonly used factors of stage and Intrinsic Subtype Classification (subtype).
  • We evaluated p53 status as a prognostic factor among AA women treated at an urban community hospital.
  • METHODS: Cox proportional hazards regression models [results reported as hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI)] were used to select and evaluate prognostic factors [including stage, age, tumor grade of differentiation (grade), p53 status, subtype, & ER/PR status] for all-cause mortality in 331 consecutively treated AA women with breast cancer [42 months follow-up] and known subtype [luminal A = ER+, &/or PR+, & HER2-; luminal B = ER+, &/or PR+, & HER2+; HER2+ = ER-, PR-, & HER2+; basal = ER-, PR-, HER2-, cytokeratin (CK) 5/6+ &/or HER1+; & unclassified = negative for all 5 markers] and p53 [Pab1801 antibody] immunohistochemical status.
  • RESULTS: Tumors in 28% of women were p53+ and there were no chemotherapy and radiation treatment differences according to p53 status.
  • However, 59% of p53+ women were ER/PR negative [Odds Ratio (OR), 0.37; 95% CI, 0.22-0.54; p=0.0003] and hence endocrine therapy was significantly less frequent in p53+ women [OR, 0.40; 95% CI, 0.23-0.69; p=0.0008].
  • p53+ tumors were also significantly more likely to be grade 3 [OR, 4.35; CI, 1.33-14.14; p=0.013].
  • Baseline prognostic factors were: stage [(II-IV/I) HR, 2.29; 95% CI, 1.86-2.81; p<0.0001]; age [HR, 1.003 per year; 95% CI, 0.99-1.02; p=0.697]; grade [(high/low) HR, 1.70; 95% CI, 1.22-2.37; p=0.0008]; p53 status [(±) HR, 1.76; 95% CI, 1.15-2.72; p=0.012]; subtype [(all other/luminal A) HR, 1.33; 95% CI, 1.14-1.55; p=0.0004]; ER/PR status [(±) HR, 0.47; 95% CI, 0.32-0.69; p=0.0001].
  • Cox multivariable models indicated that p53 status [HR, 1.59; 95% CI, 1.01-2.51; p=0.044] remained a significant prognostic factor when considered with stage [HR, 2.20; 95% CI, 1.71-2.84; p<0.001] and subtype [HR, 1.24; 95% CI, 1.04-1.49; p=0.016] and the other above-mentioned factors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Study results indicate that p53 status should be included with stage and subtype as markers to assess prognosis in AA women with breast cancer.

  • : 4504 Background: Single-agent gemcitabine (G) remains standard treatment for advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (APC).
  • The GIP-1 randomized phase III trial (clinicaltrials.gov ID NCT00813696 ) was performed to compare the combination of cisplatin (P) and G vs. G alone as 1st-line treatment.
  • METHODS: Patients (pts) with locally advanced and/or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma, age 18-75, Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) ≥50, were randomized to receive G (arm A) or G+P (arm B).
  • In arm A, G was administered at 1000 mg/m2 weekly for 7 consecutive wks, and, after a 2-week rest, on day 1, 8, 15 every 4 wks.
  • In Arm B, P 25 mg/m2 weekly (with the exception of day 22) was added to G, same dose used in Arm A (Colucci et al, Cancer 2002; 94:902-10).
  • No maximum number of cycles was planned.
  • Primary endpoint was overall survival (OS).
  • Clinical benefit (CB), objective response rate (ORR), progression-free survival (PFS), toxicity and quality of life were secondary endpoints.
  • To have 80% power of detecting a 0.74 Hazard Ratio (HR) of death (corresponding to increase in median OS from 4.8 to 6.5 months, with bilateral alpha=0.05, 400 pts were planned and 355 deaths were required for final analysis.
  • RESULTS: From April 2002 to April 2007, 400 pts were enrolled (A:199, B;.
  • 201) in 46 Italian Institutions.
  • Median age was 63 yrs (range 35-75), 59% were males, 84% stage IV, 83% KPS≥80.
  • After a median follow-up of 38.2 months and 357 deaths, median OS was 8.3 vs 7.2 months in arm A and B, respectively (HR 1.10, 95% CI 0.89-1.35, p=0.38).
  • Median PFS was 3.9 vs 3.8 months in arm A and B, respectively (HR 0.97, 95% CI 0.80-1.19, p=0.80).
  • ORR was 10.1% in arm A and 12.9% in B (p=0.37).
  • CB response was experienced by 23.0% and 15.1% (Arm A vs B, p=0.057).
  • Patients assigned to combination arm experienced more anaemia (all grades: 50% vs 39%, G3: 5% vs 1%), more neutropenia (all grades: 44% vs 36%, G3&4: 25% vs 14%) and more thrombocytopenia (all grades: 57% vs 29%, G3&4: 16% vs 5%).
  • No relevant differences were seen in non-haematological toxicity.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Weekly combination of P and G, compared to single-agent G as 1st-line treatment of APC, failed to demonstrate any improvement in OS, PFS, ORR and clinical benefit.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Environmental effects on head and neck cancer in India.
  • : e17059 Background: Head and neck cancer in India has unique demographic profile, environmental exposure, dietary habits, and personal and family history.
  • METHODS: 1,000 cases were analysed.
  • RESULTS: Males dominated (82%) in fifth (29%) and sixth (33%) decades.
  • Majority was uneducated (76%) and poor.
  • Passive tobacco smoking was seen in-house (85%) as well as in the work-place (80%).
  • Approximately 69% smoked more than 100 cigarettes/bidis in their lifetime.
  • Majority acquired regular smoking habit in second (73%) and third (18%) decades and continued smoking for more than 20 years (66%) with 10-20 cigarettes daily (range 1 to 43).
  • However 30% never used tobacco.
  • The main alternative forms were bidi (27%) and smokeless-tobacco chewing products (47%).
  • A past history of cancer and the subsequent radiation treatment was found in 3% while GERD in 33%.
  • Multivitamins/minerals for chemoprevention was used in 65% for 1 to 12 months.
  • Alcohol consumption was seen in 26% where the age of initiation was in second and third decade and the total years of consumption mainly varied from 10-30 years.
  • Having a predominant agriculture-based-economy, the majority of males (38%) were farmers with significant exposure to pesticides and fertilizers; while females predominantly housewifes (17%).
  • The family history was appreciated in 1% with natural parents known in all.
  • The most common sites involved were oral cavity (28%), oropharynx (30%), and larynx (32%).
  • Majority presented with advanced stage (III = 39%; IV = 23%).
  • The consumption of fruit and vegetable juice was less common as compared to fresh consumption as such.
  • Green salads, potatoes, and fiber cereals were significantly used (4-6 times a week).
  • Beans, peas, and corn was not common while beef and pork consumption rare owing .
  • The 'staple' diet was wheat, rice, pulses with additional meat mainly in Muslims (once a day).
  • The use of cooking oil, butter, eggs biscuits, cheese, cakes, and cookies was uncommon (less than once a week), but milk was abundant.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hence, it seems that poor, education/literacy, poor socioeconomic status, tobacco smoking (passive and active) at an early age for prolonged duration, tobacco-related products and exposure to pesticides/fertilizers predispose Indian population for head and neck cancer, rather than a positive family history, dietary factors, radiation exposure, or alcoholism.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Progression-free survival in intention to treat populations versus total KRAS populations in patients treated for metastatic colorectal cancer: A pooled review.
  • : 4054 Background: In treatment trials of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), KRAS mutation status of tumor samples has been retrospectively demonstrated to be predictive of treatment benefit.
  • Historically, clinical trials have not required tissue samples to be tested for KRAS mutation status as a condition of enrollment.
  • Therefore, KRAS analyses have been based on available tissue samples representing only a portion of patients retrospectively analyzed for KRAS status and correlated with treatment end- points.
  • METHODS: A weighted analysis of pooled data was performed using six recently presented or published clinical trials of targeted therapy in mCRC which tested for the association of KRAS status with Progression Free Survival (PFS).
  • The goal of the analysis was to determine whether there is a significant difference in PFS between the intention to treat (ITT) population and KRAS population in both the treatment and control arms.
  • RESULTS: The total ITT population of the pooled studies is 3864, and for the total KRAS population, 2295; a 59.4% retrieval rate (range 28-92%) for tissue samples available for KRAS analysis.
  • The weighted Δ PFS across all arms between the ITT population and the KRAS population was 0.2 months with a range of 0-0.7 months.
  • Of the 12 subgroups (6 control and 6 treatment arms), five had no difference in PFS between ITT and KRAS evaluable populations at all, and two additional subgroups demonstrated a difference PFS of only 0.1 months.
  • The two studies with the lowest tissue retrieval rates (28% and 45%) had the largest Δ PFS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is no meaningful difference in the PFS between the ITT and KRAS populations based on our analysis of pooled data.
  • The difference in PFS was greatest in the two studies with the lowest rate of retrieval of tissue samples for KRAS testing.
  • As such, subgroup analysis is better able to estimate and reflect the ITT population if a higher percentage of samples is able to be obtained.
  • Further, our results suggest that there is not an inherent systemic bias influencing any potentially observed differences in PFS.
  • Tissue samples should be required for all patients entering a clinical trial to avoid this issue and to make retrospective analysis more valid.

  • [Title] Can adjuvant homeopathy improve the control of post-chemotherapy emesis in breast cancer patients? Results of a randomized placebo-controlled trial.
  • : e20566 Background: Homeopathy used as an adjunct in the treatment of chemotherapy (CT)-induced emesis has rarely been evaluated.
  • METHODS: Patients with non-metastatic breast cancer treated with 6 courses of FAC 50, FEC 100 or TAC chemotherapy were randomized to Cocculus/nux vomica/tabacum/petroleum extract (Cocculine, C) or Placebo (P) in a multicentric comparative double-blind phase III study.
  • Anti-emetic treatment was standardized (corticoids + ondansetron).
  • Patients were evaluated after each course.
  • The primary endpoint was nausea measured after the 1<sup>st</sup> CT course using the FLIE (Functional Living Index for Emesis) with 5-day recall.
  • The planned sample size was 396 evaluable patients based on a minimum expected difference in mean of 0.5 ± 1.6 on a scale from 1 (a lot) to 7 (not at all) with 5% two-sided α error and 85% power.
  • An intent-to-treat analysis was planned.
  • Secondary evaluation criteria were: vomiting measured by the FLIE score, patient self-evaluation (EVA) and investigator recording (NCI-CTC) of nausea and vomiting intensities, and compliance.
  • RESULTS: From September 05 to January 08, 431 patients were randomized (217 to P and 214 to C).
  • Patient characteristics were well balanced between groups.
  • Median age was 53 years, 35% of the patients experienced nausea or vomiting.
  • In total, 403 patients (93.5%) were assessable for the primary endpoint, with few nausea episodes (FLIE nausea scores after the 1<sup>st</sup> CT course were 6.02 and 6.07 for P and C, respectively) and very good compliance (81% patients complied with the protocol).
  • Adverse events related to nausea occurred in 51% vs. 47% of the patients treated with P and C, respectively (p = 0.48).
  • FLIE and NCI-CTC vomiting scores were similar between the 2 arms (6.91 vs. 6.88, p = 0.47, and 20% vs. 21%, p = 0.73, for P and C, respectively).
  • Grade II-III nausea occurred in 17.6% and 15.7% of patients receiving P and C (p = 0.62).
  • CONCLUSIONS: No benefit of homeopathy over standard treatment was noted in this study.
  • But surprisingly we observed lower rates of nausea and vomiting measured by patients and by investigators, than in other studies using identical chemotherapy regimens.
  • The observation and management of emesis could modify the perception and rate of such adverse events.

  • : 8542 Background: Panobinostat (LBH589) is a highly potent pan-deacetylase inhibitor (pan-DACi), affecting with epigenetic and non-epigenetic pathways of cancer.
  • In vivo experiments demonstrated potent MM cytotoxicity of the triplet panobinostat + lenalidomide + dexamethasone.
  • METHODS: Trial started with 5 mg panobinostat (po, TIW) combined with fixed doses of lenalidomide (25 mg po, QD, Days 1-21) and dexamethasone (40 mg po, Days 1-4, 9-12, 17-20, Cycles 1-4), in a 28-day cycle.
  • MTD of panobinostat in this combination for second-line MM will be established based on data from cohorts of ≥6 evaluable patients (pts).
  • Safety, tolerability, PK/PD, and preliminary efficacy will be assessed.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-two pts with relapsed or relapsed refractory MM were treated in three dose levels to date.
  • Dose escalation started at 5 mg panobinostat (po, thrice weekly) combined with fixed doses of 25 mg lenalidomide (po, qd, Days 1-21) and 40 mg of dexamethasone (po, Days 1-4, 9-12, 17-20, Cycles 1-4), in a 28-day cycle.
  • Data from all eight patients in Cohort 1 were evaluated.
  • The median number of prior lines of therapy was two (range 1-3).
  • Six out of eight patients in Cohort 1 remain on therapy.
  • Median follow-up is six cycles (range 4-8+).
  • No DLT was observed.
  • In Cohort 2, eight patients were treated at the dose level of 10 mg of panobinostat, with one single DLT: a Gr 1 increase of QT interval duration was detected on Day 3, persisting on Day 8 with therapy withheld, meeting DLT definition although not deemed clinically relevant.
  • Cohort 3 is enrolling with six patients at 20 mg of panobinostat, thus far.
  • SAEs included fever (two pts), anxious depressive syndrome, respiratory infection, atrial fibrillation, exertional dyspnea, cellulitis, superficial blood clot of thigh, phlebitis, hypokalemia.
  • All, but fever in one patient, were assessed by the investigator as not study drug related.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The potential for anti-myeloma activity of this triple combination is strongly supported by in vivo preclinical data.
  • In this first clinical trial assessing this triple oral combination, the 5 and 10 mg dose level of panobinostat appear safe.
  • Updated safety, early efficacy, and subsequent dose-level patient data will be presented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Dosimetric impact of geometric errors due to respiratory motion prediction on dynamic multileaf collimator-based four-dimensional radiation delivery.
  • The synchronization of dynamic multileaf collimator (DMLC) response with respiratory motion is critical to ensure the accuracy of DMLC-based four dimensional (4D) radiation delivery.
  • In practice, however, a finite time delay (response time) between the acquisition of tumor position and multileaf collimator response necessitates predictive models of respiratory tumor motion to synchronize radiation delivery.
  • Predicting a complex process such as respiratory motion introduces geometric errors, which have been reported in several publications.
  • However, the dosimetric effect of such errors on 4D radiation delivery has not yet been investigated.
  • Thus, our aim in this work was to quantify the dosimetric effects of geometric error due to prediction under several different conditions.
  • Conformal and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plans for a lung patient were generated for anterior-posterior/posterior-anterior (AP/PA) beam arrangements at 6 and 18 MV energies to provide planned dose distributions.
  • Respiratory motion data was obtained from 60 diaphragm-motion fluoroscopy recordings from five patients.
  • A linear adaptive filter was employed to predict the tumor position.
  • The geometric error of prediction was defined as the absolute difference between predicted and actual positions at each diaphragm position.
  • Distributions of geometric error of prediction were obtained for all of the respiratory motion data.
  • Planned dose distributions were then convolved with distributions for the geometric error of prediction to obtain convolved dose distributions.
  • The dosimetric effect of such geometric errors was determined as a function of several variables: response time (0-0.6 s), beam energy (6∕18MV), treatment delivery (3D∕4D), treatment type (conformal/IMRT), beam direction (AP/PA), and breathing training type (free breathing/audio instruction/visual feedback).
  • Dose difference and distance-to-agreement analysis was employed to quantify results.
  • Based on our data, the dosimetric impact of prediction (a) increased with response time, (b) was larger for 3D radiation therapy as compared with 4D radiation therapy, (c) was relatively insensitive to change in beam energy and beam direction, (d) was greater for IMRT distributions as compared with conformal distributions, (e) was smaller than the dosimetric impact of latency, and (f) was greatest for respiration motion with audio instructions, followed by visual feedback and free breathing.
  • Geometric errors of prediction that occur during 4D radiation delivery introduce dosimetric errors that are dependent on several factors, such as response time, treatment-delivery type, and beam energy.
  • Even for relatively small response times of 0.6 s into the future, dosimetric errors due to prediction could approach delivery errors when respiratory motion is not accounted for at all.
  • To reduce the dosimetric impact, better predictive models and/or shorter response times are required.

  • [Title] Treatment of cetuximab-associated cutaneous side effects using topical aplication oh vitamin K1 cream.
  • : e15087 Background: The EGFR-targeting monoclonal antibody cetuximab has been licensed by the EMEA in combination with chemotherapy for the treatment of 1<sup>st</sup> line metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients (pts) whose tumors have KRAS wild type status.
  • The major side effects of cetuximab are cutaneous reactions (approx.
  • 80% of pts.) predominantly consisting of an acne- like rash 60-100%, but also including pruritus, dry skin (35%), desquamation, hypertrichosis and nail disorders (10-40%).
  • If not properly managed, they have the potential to cause dose reductions and delays, which may in turn impact on treatment efficacy.
  • The aim of our study was to determine the efficacy of topical vitamin K1 cream in pts with cutaneus side effects caused by cetuximab therapy.
  • METHODS: Between January 2007 and August 2008, 79 pts with mCRC were treated with weekly cetuximab in combination with chemotherapy.
  • Topical use of a cream containing urea and 0.1% vitamin K1 was applied when an acne-like rash (NCI CTCAE version 3) appeared .
  • Pts were monitored weekly for at least 12 weeks.
  • RESULTS: Sixty nine patients developed an acne-like rash after a median of 1.2 weeks after first cetuximab administration (range 1- 4), 20 pts grade 3, 38 grade 2 and 11 grade 1.
  • Twice-daily application of vitamin K1 cream resulted in a gradual decrease in cutaneous toxicity.
  • Median time to improvement (all toxicity grades) was 1.2 weeks and 2.3 weeks to a down-staging of the rash by at least 1 grade.
  • Dose reduction of cetuximab was necessary for only 5 of the 20 pts with grade 3 toxicity.
  • No dose reductions or treatment delays were needed for any patient with grade 1 or 2 cutaneous toxicity.
  • Topical clindamycin was used concomitantly in 12/20 and 2/38 pts with grade 3 and grade 2 reactions respectively.
  • No toxicity was associated with the topical use of vitamin K1cream.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated the efficacy of topically applied vitamin K1 containing cream in the management of cetuximab-induced acne-like skin rash.

  • [Title] Declines in physical function from androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in men with nonmetastatic prostate cancer: A matched cohort study.
  • : 9526 Background: Although prolonged use of ADT is hypothesized to adversely affect physical function, few studies have examined this relationship longitudinally using objective measures of physical function.
  • METHODS: Men age 50+ with non-metastatic prostate cancer (PC) starting continuous ADT were enrolled in this prospective longitudinal matched cohort study.
  • Physical function was assessed with the six-minute walk test (6MWT), grip strength, and the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test, representing endurance, upper extremity strength, and lower extremity strength, respectively.
  • Self-reported physical function was measured with the Medical Outcomes Study SF-36.
  • Assessments were done at baseline, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months.
  • Two control groups, matched on age, education, and baseline function were also enrolled.
  • One control group had PC but did not receive ADT, and the other group did not have PC.
  • Linear mixed effects regression models were fitted adjusting for baseline covariates.
  • RESULTS: 85 patients on ADT, 86 PC controls, and 86 healthy controls were enrolled.
  • All 3 groups were similar in age (mean age 69.1 y, range 50-87) and physical function (all ANOVA p>0.05).
  • The 6MWT distance improved in both control groups (p=0.05 and 0.05 for PC and healthy controls, respectively) but remained stable in the ADT group (p=0.96)).
  • Grip strength declined in the ADT group (p=0.04), remained stable in the PC control group (p=0.31), and improved in the healthy control group (p=0.008).
  • TUG scores remained stable over time and across groups (p>0.10).
  • SF-36 physical function declined in the ADT group (p<0.001) but increased in both control groups (p<0.001).
  • Negative effects on outcomes were noted within 3-6 months of starting ADT and were larger with older age.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endurance, upper extremity strength, and self-reported physical function are affected within 3-6 months of starting ADT, particularly in older men.
  • Declines persist at 12 months after adjustment for baseline function and covariates.
  • Exercise intervention studies to counteract these losses are warranted.
  • No significant financial relationships to disclose.
