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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Pharmacogenetics in acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Progress in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children has been remarkable, from a disease being lethal four decades ago to current cure rates exceeding 80%.
  • However, despite these high cure rates, the annual number of children whose leukemia relapses after their initial therapy remains greater than that of new cases of most types of childhood cancers.
  • These studies illustrate the promise of pharmacogenomics to further advance the treatment of human cancers, with childhood leukemia serving as a paradigm.

  • [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.

  • : 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • [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.

  • : 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.

  • [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.

30. 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.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: One hundred and seventy-four consecutive patients (median age 64y, 128 m) underwent both CT and specialist EUS, and the maximum potential tumour cylinder volume (EDTV) was calculated using the formula πr<sup>2</sup>L (cylinder volume), where r = tumour thickness (cm) and L = total length of disease, including the position and level of both the primary tumour and proximal and distal lymph nodes (cm).
  • RESULTS: Survival was related to EUS T (p=0.013), EUS N (p=0.001), EUS M1a stage (p=0.004), EUS disease length (p=0.001), and EDTV (all patients <25cm<sup>3</sup>, p=0.001, surgical patients <40cm<sup>3</sup>, p=0.036).

  • : 11005 Expression of BCR-ABL1 in hematopoietic stem cells can alone induce a chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) but cooperating oncogenic lesions are required for the generation of a blastic leukemia.
  • To identify oncogenic sub-microscopic lesions that cooperate with BCR-ABL1 to induce ALL, by high resolution single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays (250K NspI and SNP 6.0, Affymetrix) we studied 106 patients (pts) with de novo adult BCR-ABL1-positive ALL.
  • The most frequent somatic copy number alteration was deletion on 7p12 of IKZF1 (68/106, 64%), which encodes the transcription factor Ikaros required for the earliest stages of lymphoid lineage commitment.
  • Gene expression profiling analysis of pts with IKZF1 deletion vs wild-type pts identified a unique signature characterized by a down-regulation of genes involved in pre-B-cell differentiation (e.g.
  • VPREB1, VPREB3, IGLL3, BLK), demonstrating that genomic IKZF1 alterations have a strong impact on trascriptoma and contribute to an impaired B-cell differentiation.
  • Univariate analysis showed that the IKZF1 deletion is a negative prognostic marker influencing the cumulative incidence of relapse (10.1 months for pts with deletion vs 56.1 months for wild-type pts, p=0.0103) and disease-free survival (DFS) (10.1 months vs 32.1 months, respectively, p=0.0229).

  • In a multivariate model, significant predictors of VTE were age 40-59 yrs, plt count 50-99 x 10<sup>9</sup>/L, diagnosis of Ph-positive ALL, history of VTE, and OCP/HRT use.
  • In addition to traditional risk factors, disease-specific features may also predispose pts to higher VTE risk.
  • Further studies should be done in other leukemias to establish guidelines in the prevention and management of VTE in pts with leukemia.

68. Kiers HA: Properties of and Algorithms for Fitting Three-Way Component Models with Offset Terms. Psychometrika; 2006 Jun;71(2):231-256

  • [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.

  • : 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.

  • : 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.

  • [Title] Panobinostat plus lenalidomide and dexamethasone phase I trial in multiple myeloma (MM).
  • : 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.

Nguyen PL, Chen MH, Beard CJ, Loffredo M, Renshaw AA, Suh WW, Kantoff PW, D'Amico AV: Postrandomization analysis assessing survival following radiation therapy (RT) with or without 6 months of androgen suppression therapy (AST) for localized prostate cancer (PCa). J Clin Oncol; 2009 May 20;27(15_suppl):5129

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Among 206 men with clinical T1b-T2b PCa and at least 1 unfavorable feature (PSA>10 or Gleason >=7 or MRI evidence of T3 disease) randomized to 70Gy of RT with or without 6 months of AST, we performed post-randomization subgroup analyses within four subgroups defined by both risk group (high risk [Gleason 8-10 or PSA >20] or intermediate risk [all others]), and by ACE-27 comorbidity level (no/limited comorbidity or moderate/severe comorbidity).
  • In men with no or minimal comorbidity, estimates of survival were significantly higher among those who received AST+RT vs. RT alone, regardless of whether they had intermediate risk disease (90.9 vs. 85.8% at 7yrs, p = 0.009) or high-risk disease (88.9% vs. 51.2% at 7yrs, p = 0.007).
  • After adjusting for known prognostic factors, treatment with RT as compared to AST+RT was associated with an increased risk of death in men with intermediate (AHR: 3.0 [95% CI: 1.3 to 7.2]; p = 0.01) and high risk disease (AHR: 3.3 [95% CI: 0.94 to 11.3]; p = 0.06) in a model that adjusted for the interaction between treatment and comorbidity.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Among men with T1b-T2b prostate cancer who have no or minimal comorbidity, the addition of 6 months of AST to RT was associated with improved survival in men with both intermediate risk and high-risk disease.

  • [Title] Risk and endocrine responsiveness (ER) categories in operated breast cancer (BC) patients (pts) from Tucuman, Argentina.
  • : e22224 Background: BC is the most common malignancy and the 1st cause of death by cancer in women in Tucuman, Argentina.The expression of hormone receptors and Her 2 neu in tumor tissue with other microscopic variables have shown to be indicators of prognosis and is also useful in therapeutic decisions.The molecular basis for treatment selection is actually the best way for a treatment "target" identification.The objective of this trial was to determine the patients profile in the population with BC under program (all pts studied under methodologic norms of a BC Detection Program) from Tucumán Argentina, defined by risk categories (high, intermediate or low) and endocrine response (high, incomplete or no response)according St Gallen 2007.
  • METHODS: The population included in the study were 246 pts with BC from public and private institutions in the province of Tucumán.HE routine biopsies were used for the assessment of histological type and subtype, tumor grade (according to Elston et al. and Nottinghan breast cancer grading method), axillary nodes status, tumor size, and the IHC staining for estrogen, progesterone receptors and Her2 neu.The results were studied grouping and evaluating the data for risk and endocrine responsiveness.The statistic applied was the exploratory analysis.IHC methods were validated with external and internal controls, in 7 cases Her2 was determined also by Fish.
  • RESULTS: 217/246 pts completed all parameters and were classified on risk categories: high (60 patients- 27,6%-); intermediate (156 patients-71,9%-) and low (1 patient-0,5%).No significant differences were found between the ages of groups with different levels of risk.The ER of the pts(n:242/246) showed highly endocrine responsive in 109/242 (45%), incompletely endocrine responsive in 49/242 (20,2%), endocrine no responsive 84/242 (34,7%).
  • and association between endocrine levels of response and age range and tumor size (p <0001 chi-square test and p<0,017).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results are comparable with international data and allows us to know the patients profiles in our population under BC program.
  • No significant financial relationships to disclose.

  • [Title] Relationship of sensory symptoms and motor function in patients with chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) utilizing the EORTC QLQ CIPN20: NCCTG study N06CA.
  • : 9587 Background: CIPN is characterized by adjectives not covered directly by most common measures of pain and functional limitations.
  • Possible descriptors include numbness, tingling and shooting/burning pain.
  • A prospective neuropathy treatment trial provided data to explore the relationship between self-reported aspects of this symptom.
  • METHODS: Baseline EORTC QLQ CIPN20 data and NCI CTCAE V3.0 (CTC)neuropathy grade (I-IV) were provided for all patients on trial.
  • Spearman correlation coefficients and Kappa's coefficients of agreement were calculated between individual items and subscales of the CIPN20 as well as the CTC neuropathy scale.
  • Simple regression models were applied to examine the association between the sensory symptoms and motor function in the fingers/hands (F/H).
  • 200 patients provided 80% power to detect a correlation coefficient of 0.20 with a 5% Type I error.
  • RESULTS: A majority of patients reported "quite a bit" to "very much" numbness (57%) or tingling (62%) in F/H compared to "a little" or "not at all" (numbness (43%), tingling (38%)) by the CIPN20.
  • In contrast, only 13% of the participants had grade III/IV neuropathy determined by the CTC scale.
  • Fewer patients reported the higher two levels of CIPN20-measured shooting/burning pain in F/H (20% "quite a bit" to "very much").
  • Numbness and tingling were highly correlated (kappa=0.56), while neither were in high agreement with shooting/burning pain (kappa= 0.05 (tingling) and 0.14 (numbness)).
  • The CIPN20 sensory and motor subscales were significantly associated with each other (p<.0001) but were not or only weakly associated with the CTC.
  • Specifically, tingling, numbness, and shooting/burning pain were not associated with the CTC (R=0.16, 0.18 and 0 .11, respectively).
  • Using the CIPN20, all three sensations; numbness, tingling and shooting or burning pain were strongly associated with motor function.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most common moderate to severe CIPN symptoms were numbness and tingling with shooting/burning pain being less common.
  • Shooting/ burning pain appears to be a separate symptom experience from numbness and tingling.
  • The CTC neuropathy grading scale appears to be less sensitive than the CIPN20 in picking up sensory symptoms.
  • No significant financial relationships to disclose.
