  • [Title] Erlotinib monotherapy for stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer: a multicenter trial by the Korean Cancer Study Group.
  • BACKGROUND: Erlotinib (Tarceva, OSI Pharmaceuticals, Melville, NY) is an oral, epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor that has antitumor activity and good tolerability in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with histologically or cytologically confirmed stage IIIB or IV NSCLC including recurrent or metastatic disease, with performance status from 0 to 3, were eligible either if they had received any anticancer treatment except epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors or if they were unsuitable for chemotherapy because of poor performance status.
  • The favorable clinical variables for tumor response were female (P = 0.001), never smokers (P = 0.041), and adenocarcinoma (P = 0.001).
  • CONCLUSION: Erlotinib monotherapy showed significant antitumor activity and an acceptable tolerability profile as a palliative treatment in advanced NSCLC patients in Korea, especially in females, never smokers, and patients with adenocarcinoma histology.

  • [Title] A phase II study of erlotinib as initial treatment for patients with stage IIIB-IV non-small cell lung cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: Erlotinib improves survival in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer who have been previously treated with systemic chemotherapy.
  • METHODS: Eligibility criteria included stage IIIB/IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer, no prior chemotherapy for systemic disease, performance status = 0 to 1, no history of brain metastases, and weight loss less than 10%.
  • Histologies were adenocarcinoma in 22 and squamous cell in six.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite a modest response rate, lack of enrichment for never-smokers and absence of conventional chemotherapy in many patients, the median and long-term survivals were comparable with those expected after conventional sequencing of chemotherapy.
  • Erlotinib as initial therapy was well tolerated and warrants randomized evaluation as first-line treatment for advanced lung cancer.

  • [Title] Concurrent chemotherapy and short course radiotherapy in patients with stage IIIA to IIIB non-small cell lung cancer not eligible for radical treatment: results of a randomized phase II study.
  • INTRODUCTION: The optimal treatment for patients with stage IIIA to IIIB non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) not eligible for surgery and definitive chemoradiotherapy is unknown.
  • METHODS: Patients with stage IIIA to IIIB NSCLC with tumor >8 cm and/or forced expiratory volume < or =40%, performance status 0 to 2, and tumor-related chest symptoms were randomly assigned to arm A: radiotherapy alone (30 Gy/10 fractions) or arm B: chemoradiotherapy (two cycles of cisplatin and vinorelbine followed by radiotherapy together with third cycle).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Upfront chemotherapy combined with palliative radiotherapy (30 Gy) is a promising treatment option in the subpopulation of patients with stage IIIA to IIIB NSCLC not amenable for definitive chemoradiotherapy and deserves further investigation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic relevance of TTF-1 and MMP-9 expression in advanced lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) is a tissue-specific transcription factor that could play an important role in cell differentiation and morphogenesis of lung tumors.
  • Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is a protease commonly expressed in non-small cell lung cancer, conferring angiogenic and metastatic potential.
  • METHODS: We assessed TTF-1 and MMP-9 tumor expression by immunohistochemistry in 51 patients with lung adenocarcinoma, stage IIIB or IV, treated with platinum regimens.
  • CONCLUSION: TTF-1 and MMP-9 tumor expression as detected by immunohistochemistry may allow identification of different, clinically meaningful, prognostic groups of advanced lung adenocarcinoma patients treated with platinum regimens.

  • [Title] Comparative prognostic features of stage IIIAN2 and IIIB non-small-cell lung cancer patients treated with surgery after induction therapy.
  • OBJECTIVE: Induction Therapy (IT) before surgery emerged as a widely used strategy for IIIAN2 and selected IIIB NSCLC patients.
  • METHODS: Study recorded demographics, treatment and outcome of consecutive patients treated with IT plus surgery for IIIAN2 or IIIB NSCLC.
  • RESULTS: From 1993 to 2003, 155 patients (IIIAN2=95/IIIB=60) were treated.
  • Complete resection was associated with a significant prolonged median survival both for IIIAN2 (20 vs 16 months, P=0.05) and IIIB (20 vs 15 months, P=0.02) patients.
  • Absence of blood vessel invasion only was identified as an independent predictor of a lower risk of death (HR=0.27, 95%CI [0.12-0.59], P=0.01) for stage IIIB patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Besides similarities as the role of a complete R0 resection, treatment-related factors influence outcome of IIIAN2 patients while disease-related factors prevail on survival of IIIB patients, in whom the benefit of IT is unclear.

  • [Title] Specific EGFR mutations predict treatment outcome of stage IIIB/IV patients with chemotherapy-naive non-small-cell lung cancer receiving first-line gefitinib monotherapy.
  • PURPOSE: To explore predictive factors for time to treatment failure (TTF) in chemotherapy-naive non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients receiving gefitinib treatment.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We designed a phase II study to test gefitinib antitumor efficacy in advanced-stage, chemotherapy-naive NSCLC patients.
  • In multivariate analysis, the presence of EGFR deletion exon 19 or L858R EGFR mutations in adenocarcinoma patients predicted longer TTF.
  • CONCLUSION: In this prospective study, EGFR exon 19 deletion or L858R mutations in adenocarcinoma were the best predictors for longer TTF in stage IIIB/IV chemotherapy-naive NSCLC patients receiving first-line gefitinib monotherapy.

  • INTRODUCTION: The prognosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is poor, especially for advanced stages IIIB-IV.
  • A small number of patients survive more than 2 years after diagnosis; they are called long term survivors (LS).
  • METHODS: A retrospective study in the respiratory department of a general hospital including all patients with a proven diagnosis of NSCLC stage IIIB and IV.
  • Two thirds of the patients were PS 0-1, 84.6% were stage IIIBw-IV.
  • Adenocarcinoma was the predominant histological type.
  • Univariate analysis revealed that long term survival was associated with a Charlson's score < or = 2, PS 0-1, a normal white blood cell count at diagnosis, adenocarcinoma histology, response (RP) to first line treatment and treatment with a tyrosine-kinase inhibitor (TKI).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic value of tumor disappearance rate on computed tomography in advanced-stage lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The proportion of tumor disappearance rate (TDR) on conventional computed tomography (CT) is associated with less aggressive biology, and patients with small peripheral adenocarcinoma accompanied by the TDR component showed better prognosis.
  • These findings led us to the idea that even advanced-stage adenocarcinomas with a higher TDR in the primary lesion on CT might suggest slowly progressing cancer.
  • This study was designed to determine the value of the TDR area in the primary site of advanced-stage lung adenocarcinoma with CT and correlate the CT findings with clinical outcome.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 103 patients with stage IIIB and IV lung adenocarcinoma, CT appearances and clinical data were reviewed retrospectively.
  • Three methods were used in the evaluation of the TDR area: method I, consolidation on mediastinal windows/mass on lung windows > 75% or not; method II, maximum diameter on mediastinal windows/maximum diameter on lung windows (diameter ratio) > 75% or not; and method III, TDR area on lung windows > 25% or not.
  • RESULTS: In univariate analysis, patients with lung adenocarcinoma with TDR have a more favorable prognosis than those without TDR in all 3 methods (method I, P = 0.001; method II, P = 0.024; method III, P = 0.014; log-rank test).
  • In multivariate analysis, a favorable prognosis in patients with adenocarcinoma with TDR was shown in method I (P = 0.015) and method III (P = 0.006).
  • CONCLUSION: As shown in patients with small peripheral lung adenocarcinoma, those with TDR on CT tended to have a good prognosis in contrast to those without TDR, even in patients with advanced-stage lung adenocarcinoma.

  • PURPOSE: To assess the activity of induction chemotherapy followed by surgery in stage IIIA and selected stage IIIB non-small-cell lung cancer patients.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Mediastinoscopy proof of either positive N2 (IIIA) or T4N0-1 (IIIB) disease was required.
  • The overall complete resection rate was 68.9% of patients eligible for surgery (72% of stage IIIA patients and 66% of stage IIIB patients) and 48% of all assessable patients.
  • The median overall survival time was 15.9 months, 3-year survival rate was 36.8%, and 5-year survival rate was 21.1%, with no significant differences in survival between stage IIIA and stage IIIB patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Induction chemotherapy followed by surgery is effective in stage IIIA and in selected stage IIIB patients attaining complete resection.

  • [Title] Prescribing plans (PP) of American Oncologists for first-line therapy (Rx) for patients with stage III (wet)/IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and PS 2: Overall selection and impact of gender and smoking status.
  • : e19046 Background: Selection of oral EGFR inhibitors or chemotherapy as 2<sup>nd</sup> line in patients with NSCLC may be influenced by patients' performance status (PS), smoking status, gender; tumor histology; tolerance/response to 1<sup>st</sup>-line Rx; and patient expectations/desires.
  • METHODS: Between February '07 and October '08, we used a core case scenario of stage IV mucin positive adenocarcinoma (Adeno ca) of lung in a 68-year-old former smoker (FS; stopped 6 years ago) with PS 2, to study patient related variations in PP of almost 800 American medical oncologists during 10 live research events [393 MDs/5 events during 2008].
  • Impact of gender or/and smoking history on 1<sup>st</sup>-line Rx selection was assessed.
  • For a female NS with Adeno ca /PS2, ≥2/3 of MDs plan erlotinib 1<sup>st</sup>-line.
  • In the absence of testing results for EGFR expression by IHC, EGFR gene copy number by FISH, EGFR gene mutation testing, or kras mutation testing, our data show a direct correlation of patient "phenotype" and PP for erlotinib as 1<sup>st</sup>-line Rx, a setting not specifically an approved indications for this agent.
  • The impact of recently reported progression free survival data from an Asian phase III trial (IPASS: gefitinib or chemotherapy or as 1<sup>st</sup>-line therapy in non or former light-smoking patients with lung adenoca) on future prescribing plans in this clinical setting will be of great interest.
  • CONCLUSIONS: By our observations, smoking status dominates over gender in PP of oncologists when treating wet IIIB/IV Adeno ca of lung.

  • [Title] Impact of dose reductions of platinum compounds on survival in stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • We aimed to determine the effect of dose reductions of platinums on outcome of stage IIIB/IV NSCLC.
  • RESULTS: Median age was 60 years (range: 28-87), 79% of patients were male, 31% were 65 yearsold/older, 55% had PS of 0, and 27% had stage IIIB disease.
  • Histological subtypes were squamous cell in 32%, adenocarcinoma in 34%, and NSCLC in 31%.
  • Patients with PS of 0, no weight loss, stage IIIB disease, receiving combination CT with docetaxel-cisplatin, and having partial response to treatment lived significantly longer.
  • On multivariate analysis weight loss, stage and type of response to treatment had an impact on OS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Using lower doses of platinum compounds in combination chemotherapy for stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer might not have a negative impact on survival and definitely have a better toxicity profile.

  • Of the other 9 trials (1239 pts), 1197 pts (97%) had complete information: 78%/22% males / females, 83%/17% younger / older than 70, 28%/59%/13% Performance Status (PS) 0 / 1 / 2, 18%/82% stage IIIB / IV, 32%/47%/21% squamous / adenocarcinoma / other histology.
  • 84% were pretreated with platin and 44% had obtained objective response (OR) to 1<sup>st</sup> line treatment.
  • At multivariate analysis, prognosis was significantly influenced by gender (worse in males vs females, Hazard Ratio [HR] 1.23 [95%CI 1.04-1.45], p=0.01), by PS (worse in PS1 vs PS0, HR 1.36 [1.16-1.59], p=0.0001 and in PS2 vs PS0, HR 3.01 [2.41-3.76], p<0.00001), by tumor histology (better in adenocarcinoma vs squamous, HR 0.85 [0.73-0.99], p=0.04 and worse in other histology vs squamous, HR 1.27 [1.05-1.52], p=0.01), by stage (worse in stage IV vs IIIB, HR 1.28 [1.07-1.53], p=0.007), by type of previous treatment (worse for pts pretreated with platin vs pts not pretreated with platin, HR 1.49 [1.14-1.93], p=0.003), and worse for pts not obtaining OR vs pts obtaining OR during 1<sup>st</sup> line (HR 1.25 [1.10-1.44], p=0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In addition to patient-related (gender, PS) or tumor-related factors (histology, stage), prognosis of pts eligible for 2<sup>nd</sup> line treatment of aNSCLC is significantly conditioned by previous use of platin and response to 1<sup>st</sup> line treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Comorbidity and survival in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) veteran patients.
  • We studied whether the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CMI), Cumulative Illness Rating Scale (CIRS), Kaplan Feinstein Index (KFI), and/or VA Comorbidity Scale (VA) independently predicted survival for NSCLC patients Methods: In an IRB approved protocol, the charts of 101 patients with Stage IIIA, IIIB or IV Non small cell lung cancer seen from 2004 through 2006 at a VA medical center were reviewed of whom 94 have already died.
  • Comorbidity scores ECOG performance status (PS), stage, number of treatments, serum LDH, and albumin levels were obtained or coded from medical records.
  • RESULTS: Median (M) patient age was 69 years (range 51-88), the M ECOG PS was 1 (range 0-4); 13 (13%) had stage IIIA, 27 (26%) IIB and 62 (61%) IV.
  • Histologies were adenocarcinoma in 48 (48%) pts, squamous cell in 37 (37%) pts, and other 17 (15%) pts.
  • In univariate survival analyses, the stage (p<0.001), ECOG PS (p<0.001), albumin (p<0.003), and the CIRS 17 (p <0.052) were predictive of survival; when, however, bisected by median values, the VA scale (p<0.027), ECOG PS (p<0.052) and albumin (p<.0017) were significantly related to survival but age, LDH, CMI, KFI and subscales of the CIRS (CIRS 16, CIRS 17, CIRS18) were not related to survival.
  • In multivariate proportional hazards analyses that included stage and a comorbidity index, the CIRS16 (p<.032) was an independent predictor of survival; the combinations of stage (p<0.008), ECOG PS (p<.004), stage (p<.006) and albumin (p<.002) were independent predictors of survival.

  • [Title] Erlotinib as maintenance therapy after concurrent chemoradiotherapy in patients (p) with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC): A Galician Lung Cancer Group phase II study.
  • : 7537 Background: Combination of platinum-based chemotherapy and radiotherapy is the standard treatment for p with unresectable stage III NSCLC, but considering the high rates of recurrence, it is necessary to improve these results.
  • In this study, we aim to evaluate the role of erlotinib as maintenance therapy after a standard concurrent chemo-radiotherapy regimen in p with stage III NSCLC.
  • METHODS: P with unresectable stage IIIA/IIIB-without malignant effusions-NSCLC who had received a standard concurrent chemo-radiotherapy regimen and had no evidence of tumor progression were enrolled in this single arm, open-label phase II study and received erlotinib 150 mg/day po for 6 months.
  • Baseline characteristics: median age 62 years (range 41-76); male 94.6%; caucasian 100%; smokers/never smokers (%) 97.3/2.7; ECOG PS 0/1/2 (%) 18.9/75.7/2.7; adenocarcinoma/squamous cell carcinoma/large cell carcinoma (%) 16.2/75.7/5.4; stage IIIA/IIIB (%) 16.2/83.8.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Erlotinib as maintenance therapy is an active and well tolerated treatment after concurrent chemo- radiotherapy in p with stage III NSCLC.

  • We report on the survival of lung cancer patients concomitantly exposed to metformin in our community-based program.
  • The factors that were included in the model were age, gender, stage, histology and metformin use.
  • 523 (62%) of those patients were diagnosed with adenocarcinoma; 488 (57%) were stage IIIB with pleural effusion/IV.
  • The Cox regression analysis demonstrated that age, gender, stage and use of metformin were significant prognostic factors for survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Thus, the result obtained from our model suggests that use of metformin may be associated with better survival of lung cancer patients.

  • : 8016 Background: Based on our promising results of phase II studies estimating gefitinib in NSCLC pts with sensitive EGFR mutations (JCO 2006, BJC 2006), this multicenter phase III trial compared progression free survival (PFS) of first line gefitinib versus first line chemotherapy in EGFR mutation positive pts with stage IIIB/IV NSCLC.
  • Pts having sensitive EGFR mutations, measurable site(s), ECOG PS 0-1, age of 20-75 years, and no prior chemotherapy were randomized (1:1 ratio; balanced for institution, sex, and stage) to receive Arm A: gefitinb (250 mg/ day) orally, or Arms B: CBDCA AUC 6 and TXL 200mg/m2 in 21-day cycles until disease progression.
  • Their characteristics were well balanced between arms: median age=65 years; 64% female; 77% Stage IV; 93% adenocarcinoma, 61% non-smoker.
  • Furthermore, there were no interstitial lung disease and no toxic deaths in both arms.

  • Analyses of pts with lung cancer from the 1970s and 1980s indicated that the incidence of BM at the time of diagnosis was approximately 10%.
  • METHODS: 1135 chemonaïve pts with stage IIIB or IV NSCLC were randomized to receive: G 1000 mg/m<sup>2</sup> d 1, 8 plus C AUC 5.5 d 1; or G 1000 mg/m<sup>2</sup> days 1 and 8 plus P 200 mg/m<sup>2</sup> d 1; or P 225 mg/m<sup>2</sup> plus C AUC 6.0 d 1.
  • Stratification was based on stage, baseline weight loss, and presence or absence of BM.
  • RESULTS: BM rates by subgroup were as follows (%): overall (17.1), nonsquamous (19.3), squamous (6.9), <70 y (21.3), ≥ 70 y (7.1), female (19.2), male (15.7), Caucasian (16.7), African American (18.8%), Hispanic (22.2), PS 0 (12.9), PS 1 (19.7), weight loss <5% (18.3), weight loss ≥ 5% (15.1), and stage IV (19.0).
  • 1) The higher incidence of BM (17.1%) observed in this trial may be related to the increasing incidence of adenocarcinoma, or to the increasing sensitivity of imaging modalities.

  • : e19070 Background: The results of the ISEL study in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) suggest greater benefit of gefitinib among Asian patients and non-smokers compared with the overall trial population.
  • METHODS: We conducted a retrospective case-control study to compare outcomes for gefitinib versus platinum doublet chemotherapy as first line treatment in selected NSCLC patients (stage IIIB/IV adenocarcinoma, PS 0-2).
  • Patient receiving platinum chemotherapy were selected on the basis of disease stage (IIIB or IV), gender, smoking history, WHO performance status (PS) (0-1, or 2) and age (< 60ys or ≥ 60ys) being matched to patients receiving gefitinib.
  • RESULTS: 99 chemo-naïve adenocarcinoma patients treated in our institute from January 2006 to December 2007 were collected: 33 received gefitinib and 66 received chemotherapy.
  • Gefitinib as first-line treatment confers clinically relevant benefit in Asian NSCLC patients with adenocarcinoma histology versus platinum based chemotherapy.

  • Of these, 32 patients had mediastinoscopy negative T4 lung cancer, 11 had metastases to only one pleura from extrathoracic sites, 10 had unilateral lung sarcomas involving the pleural envelope, 8 had thymomas metastatic to a pleural space, 2 were preoperatively diagnosed as mesotheliomas but at final pathology were determined to be small cell lung cancer and sarcomatoid carcinoma, and 2 represented primary mucoepidermoid and neuroectodermal malignancies.
  • Twenty-eight patients had stage IIIB (T4-N0-1) lung adenocarcinoma representing the largest homogeneous group of patients by cell type and stage.
  • Median survival for stage IIIB NSCLC was 16.7 months.
  • Patients with stage IIIB (T4, N0-1) NSCLC confined to a single pleural cavity or patients with thymoma involving one pleura may benefit from multimodality treatment including EPP.
  • Absence of residual nodal disease at resection is positively correlated with survival in the stage IIIB NSCLC group.

  • The recent interest and potential importance of BAC and the related peripheral adenocarcinoma (ADC), mixed subtype, is attributable to mounting evidence that some, perhaps many, of what are called peripheral ADCs have arisen from and often contain BAC.
  • Clinical characteristics often differ from other types of non-small cell lung cancers.

  • The association of human papillomavirus (HPV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection with non-small cell lung cancer is controversial.
  • HPV and EBV prevalence in a uniform population of lung adenocarcinoma was investigated, hypothesizing that there would be differences seen between smokers and non-smokers and between sexes.
  • Patients involved in this study were selected from a single institution database of lung cancer.
  • In total 497 patients with adenocarcinoma were identified and 110 patients had sufficient tissue for analysis with an in situ hybridization method that probed for high-risk and low-risk HPV and EBV.
  • There were 65 males and 45 females, 78 patients with stage I-IIIA disease and 32 patients with stage IIIB-IV disease.
  • It is unlikely that HPV or EBV is an important etiological agent in adenocarcinoma of the lung, even among the never-smokers.

  • [Title] Differential proteomic serum pattern of low molecular weight proteins expressed by adenocarcinoma lung cancer patients.
  • Based on the assumption that proteins can emanate from tumour to serum, we investigated whether serum low molecular weight proteins (LMW) can discriminate lung cancer patients from healthy donors.
  • Pooled sera from 20 lung cancer patients matched in sex (men), histological type (adenocarcinoma) and stage (IIIB and IV) and from 20 healthy donors (men) were submitted to 2-DE coupled to MALDI-TOF peptide mass fingerprinting.
  • In conclusion, this work shows the usefulness of 2D-gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry proteomic techniques for the identification of up- and down-regulated proteins in serum from adenocarcinoma lung cancer patients.

  • [Title] Correlation of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography maximal standardized uptake value and EGFR mutations in advanced lung adenocarcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations in lung adenocarcinoma are involved in the tumorigenesis and regulation of cell metabolism via Akt signaling.
  • Thus, in this study, we hypothesize that there exist correlations between EGFR mutation status and [(18)F]FDG uptake of advanced lung adenocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: From May 2004 to April 2008, patients with stage IIIB or IV lung adenocarcinoma who underwent [(18)F]FDG PET and EGFR mutation analysis before receiving any treatment were eligible to participate in this study.
  • RESULTS: Seventy-seven lung adenocarcinoma patients were included in this study.
  • The [(18)F]FDG uptake was significantly higher in EGFR-mutant (mean SUV(MAX) = 10.5 +/- 4.7) than wild-type (8.0 +/- 3.3) lung adenocarcinoma patients (P = 0.008).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Among Asian patients with advanced lung adenocarcinoma, those with higher SUV(MAX) on the [(18)F]FDG PET are more likely to carry EGFR mutations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Treatment outcome of locally advanced stage IIIA/B lung cancer].
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine survival of patients with stage IIIA/B non-small cell lung cancer considering disease stage and treatment methods.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 304 patients with non-small cell lung cancer were treated at the Department of Thoracic Surgery and Oncology, Institute of Oncology, Vilnius University, in 2000-2004.
  • Stage IIIA (T3N1-2M0) cancer was diagnosed for 193 (63.5%) patients and stage IIIB (T4N0-1M0) cancer was diagnosed for 111 (36.5%) patients.
  • According to morphology, there were 219 (72%) patients with squamous cell lung cancer, 80 (26.3%) with adenocarcinoma, and 5 (1.7%) patients with large cell carcinoma.
  • Surgery was performed in 145 patients: 84 (57.9%) patients underwent lung resection (T3-4N0-1M0), 51 (35.2%) patients - thoracotomy, and 10 (6.7%) patients - other palliative thoracic procedures (mediastinotomy, pleurectomy, mediastinoscopy).
  • The median and mean survival of patients with stage IIIA cancer was 8.3 months and 10.4 months, respectively, and that of patients with stage IIIB cancer - 6.4 months and 9.0 months, respectively (P < or =0.05).
  • The median survival of the patients with stage IIIA cancer who received a combination of operation, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy with a total dose of >40 Gy was 14.4 months (mean, 14.7 months), and the median survival of those who received operation, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy with a total dose of < or =40 Gy was 9.7 months (mean, 14.1 months); the median survival of the patients who underwent surgery alone was 4.9 months (mean, 6.7 months) (P=0.004 and P=0.007), respectively.
  • There was a significant difference in the median survival comparing the patients with stage IIIB cancer who underwent surgery alone and those who received a combination of radiation therapy and chemotherapy (median survival of 5.0 months [mean, 8.1 months] versus 16.8 months [mean, 17.6 months], respectively; P < or =0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Disease stage had an influence on the survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer: patients with stage IIIA (T3N0-1M0) cancer without metastases to mediastinal lymph nodes (N factor) survived longer than patients with stage IIIB (T4N1-2M0) cancer, where not only N factor had an impact but T factor as well.
  • Better treatment outcomes, i.e. longer survival, can be achieved when a combination of three treatment types - surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy - is applied to patients with stage IIIA or IIIB non-small cell lung cancer.
  • The patients with stage IIIA disease who received surgery and radiation therapy (total dose, >40 Gy), and combinations of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy and second-line chemotherapy showed a significantly longer survival than those who received surgery alone.

  • [Title] Survival improvements for advanced stage nonbronchioloalveolar carcinoma-type nonsmall cell lung cancer cases with ipsilateral intrapulmonary nodules.
  • BACKGROUND: Survival improvements have been demonstrated for patients with bronchioloalveolar (BAC) nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with intrapulmonary satellite T4 nodules compared with other patients with stage IIIB disease, and for ipsilateral intrapulmonary M1 tumors versus contralateral or distant metastasis.
  • Overall survival (OS) and lung cancer-specific survival (LCSS) univariate analyses were conducted using the Kaplan-Meier method.
  • RESULTS: A total of 27,435 incident cases of histologically confirmed, advanced stage NSCLC were identified.
  • Cases with stage IIIB NSCLC due to multiple lesions in the same lobe (n = 633) had a significantly improved median OS (21 months) and LCSS (31 months) compared with other cases with stage IIIB NSCLC (n = 7695), with an OS of 7 months and an LCSS of 9 months (P < .0001 for both comparisons).
  • Among cases with stage IV NSCLC, those with intrapulmonary nodules (n = 3010) had a significantly improved median OS (9 months) and LCSS (10 months) compared with those with distant metastasis (n = 16,097), with an OS of 4 months and an LCSS of 5 months (P < .0001 for both comparisons).
  • Among cases with stage IV NSCLC, those with ipsilateral intrapulmonary nodules (n = 1120) had improved OS (12 months) compared with those with bilateral intrapulmonary nodules (n = 1890), with an OS of 7 months (P < .0001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cases with stage IIIB and IV NSCLC with ipsilateral intrapulmonary nodules were found to have improved survival outcomes compared with other cases with stage IIIB and IV disease.

  • BACKGROUND: We previously reported on an improvement in survival and quality of life in chemotherapy-naïve patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer and low performance status (PS) treated with a combination of biotherapeutical agents and cyclophosphamide.
  • In this study, we assessed the survival, clinical status, and toxicity of this multidrug regimen in chemotherapy-pretreated patients with advanced lung adenocarcinoma and low PS.
  • METHODS: Patients with stage IIIB or IV lung adenocarcinoma, who had progressed after prior standard chemotherapy, and with an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group PS > or = 2, received a daily combination of somatostatin, retinoids, melatonin, vitamin D, bromocriptine, and cyclophosphamide.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The combined regimen of somatostatin, retinoids, melatonin, vitamin D, bromocriptine, and cyclophosphamide is well tolerated and can improve disease-related symptoms in heavily pretreated patients with late-stage lung adenocarcinoma and poor PS.

  • [Title] Brain metastasis is an early manifestation of distant failure in stage III nonsmall cell lung cancer patients treated with radical chemoradiation therapy.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the patterns of distant relapse, focusing on brain metastasis, in patients with stage III nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with radical chemoradiation therapy (CRT).
  • METHODS: The British Columbia Cancer Agency provincial database identified 2268 patients presenting with stage III NSCLC between January 1, 1990 and December 31, 2000.
  • Variables analyzed included gender, age, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status, stage, histology, sites of metastasis, and survival.
  • There were 74 stage IIIA and 46 stage IIIB cases.
  • Histologic subtypes were squamous cell carcinoma (n = 29), adenocarcinoma (n = 53), and other non-squamous histologies (n = 38).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Stage III NSCLC patients treated with CRT have high risks of brain metastasis which persist during the first 10 months after diagnosis.

  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the treatment outcomes of the three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT), in conjunction with induction chemotherapy, for the treatment of stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between November 1998 and March 2003, 22 patients with histologically proven, clinical stage III NSCLC, treated with induction chemotherapy, followed by 3D-CRT, were retrospectively analyzed.
  • The clinical cancer stages were IIIA and IIIB in 41 and 59%, respectively.
  • The histologies were squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and others in 73, 18 and 9%, respectively.
  • The prognostic factors for overall survival by a univariate analysis were age, histology and T stage (p<0.05).
  • Acute radiation toxicities, as evaluated by the RTOG toxicity criteria, included two cases of grade 3 lung toxicity and one case of grade 2 esophagus toxicity.
  • It also seems to be a safe, well-tolerated and effective treatment modality for stage III NSCLC.

  • PURPOSE: For locoregionally advanced inoperable non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), concurrent chemoradiotherapy has become a standard therapy.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Eligibility included inoperable clinical Stage III NSCLC without pleural effusion, ECOG performance status 0-1, and weight loss < or =5%.
  • The median age was 59 years and 13 patients had IIIA and 27 had IIIB; 24 had squamous ca, 12 had adenocarcinoma, and 4 had others.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Induction chemotherapy with gemcitabine and vinorelbine followed by concurrent chemoradiotherapy with etoposide and cisplatin showed very promising survival in patients with Stage III NSCLC, especially in those without supraclavicular nodal involvement, which warrants further evaluation.

  • [Title] Prognostic relevance of angiogenesis in stage III NSCLC receiving multimodality treatment.
  • Compelling evidence indicates that microvessel density (MVD) is a prognostic marker in early nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • However, its role in lymph node metastases in stage III NSCLC receiving multimodality treatment is unknown.
  • Lymph nodes of 142 patients with stage III NSCLC, treated in a trial of the German Lung Cancer Cooperative group, were evaluated for MVD.
  • However, in multimodality-treated stage IIIA patients receiving tumour resection with negative margins (R0), those with a high MVD had significantly prolonged overall survival with a median of 4.96 yrs compared with 1.99 yrs for those with low MVD (p = 0.041).
  • Cox regression analysis revealed that MVD was a prognostic factor in R0-resected stage IIIA (hazard ratio 0.417).
  • Furthermore, a significant correlation of MVD to stage was observed, with significantly lower MVD in stage IIIA than IIIB (p = 0.0062), and a significant correlation of MVD to histological subtype was observed, with adenocarcinoma revealing the highest scores (p = 0.0001).

  • [Title] Adenocarcinoma has an excellent outcome with pemetrexed treatment in Korean patients: a prospective, multicenter trial.
  • OBJECTIVE: This prospective multicenter study conducted by the Korean Cancer Study Group evaluated the efficacy and safety of pemetrexed in Korean patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who had prior chemotherapy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with stage IIIB or IV NSCLC in whom prior chemotherapy failed received pemetrexed 500 mg/m(2) every 3 weeks with folic acid and vitamin B12 supplementation until disease progression or the development of intolerable toxicity.
  • The median OS for patients with adenocarcinoma histology was 18.7 months compared to 6.1 months for non-adenocarcinoma.
  • In a multivariate analysis, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status 0-1 [hazards ratio (HR)=0.331, 95% CI 0.135-0.814] and adenocarcinoma (HR=0.504, 95% CI 0.283-0.899) were independent factors for prolongation of overall survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pemetrexed monotherapy has promising efficacy in patients with advanced NSCLC as a second-line therapy with less hematologic and non-hematologic toxicity, especially in those with adenocarcinoma histology.

  • [Title] Concurrent cisplatin/etoposide plus 3D-conformal radiotherapy followed by surgery for stage IIB (superior sulcus T3N0)/III non-small cell lung cancer yields a high rate of pathological complete response.
  • INTRODUCTION: Optimal preoperative treatment of stage IIB (Pancoast)/III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains undetermined and a subject of controversy.
  • RESULTS: From 1996 to 2005, 107 pts were initially selected for treatment and received induction chemoradiation (stage IIB-Pancoast 18, IIIA 58 and IIIB 31, squamous cell carcinoma 48%, adenocarcinoma 44%, large-cell undifferentiated carcinoma 14%).
  • CONCLUSION: Surgery was feasible after induction chemoradiation, particularly lobectomy in PS 0-1, stage IIB (Pancoast)/III NSCLC pts but pneumonectomy carries a high risk of postoperative death (particularly, right pneumonectomy).

  • METHODS: A retrospective descriptive study of patients receiving a histopathological diagnosis of lung cancer between 1995 and 2002 in the city of Manaus, Brazil.
  • The following histological types were identified: squamous cell carcinoma, 62.8%; adenocarcinoma, 24.7%; small cell carcinoma, 9.1%; and large cell carcinoma, 3.4%.
  • The most common stages were stages IIIB and IV, in 45% and 21.5%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this group of patients with lung cancer, survival rates were considerably lower than those reported in the literature.
  • This might be attributable to the limited access to the specialized health care system and the advanced stage of the disease at diagnosis.

  • [Title] Expression of MMP-7, MMP-9, TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 mRNA in lung tissue of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and benign pulmonary disease.
  • The expression of matrix metallo-proteinases (MMP-7 and MMP-9) and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMP-1 and TIMP-2), which are involved in the degradation of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and tumor growth, was investigated in normal lung tissue, tissue of benign pulmonary diseases and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissue.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Tumor tissue and surrounding carcinoma-free lung tissue samples were obtained from 91 patients with NSCLC who had undergone surgery in the years 2005-2007 as well as lung tissue from 12 patients operated on for 'benign' bullous emphysema or interstitial lung disease.
  • RESULTS: Significantly higher expression of MMP-7, MMP-9 and TIMP-1 mRNA was demonstrated in the NSCLC tissue in comparison with the normal lung tissue from the same patients (p=0.0003, p<0.0001 and p=0.0018, respectively).
  • Similar results for MMP-7, MMP-9 and TIMP-1 were found in the histological subgroups: squamous cell lung cancer vs. normal tissue (p=0.0198, p=0.0015 and p=0.0366, respectively), and adenocarcinoma vs. normal tissue (p=0.0045, p<0.0001 and p=0.0140, respectively).
  • The expression of MMP-7 was found to be significantly higher in tumor tissue vs. lung tissue of the benign diseases (p=0.0086) and similar results were also recorded in the histological subgroups: squamous cell lung cancer vs. benign tissue (p=0.0171) and adenocarcinoma vs. benign tissue (p=0.0135).
  • The expression of MMP-9 was significantly higher only in the adenocarcinoma subgroup vs. the benign tissue (p=0.0412).
  • No differences in the expression of mRNA between stage IA and stages IB-IIIB of NSCLC were recorded.
  • CONCLUSION: Significantly higher expression of MMP-7 and MMP-9 in tumor tissue than in the surrounding tissue or in benign lung disease tissue supports the notion of an important role of these metalloproteinases in the growth of lung carcinoma.
  • TIMP-1 expression is increased only in carcinoma, but not in benign lung disease.

  • Since HIV infection and opportunistic infections began to be treated by highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), the incidence of cancers, especially lung cancer increased.
  • The clinical course of lung cancer in HIV infected patients is more aggressive, and little is known about its features or management.
  • We retrospectively evaluated 6 cases of lung cancer with HIV infected patients in Tokyo Metropolitan Komagome Hospital.
  • Adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and small cell carcinoma were observed in 3, 2 and 1, respectively.
  • There were 2 cases each of clinical Stage I, IIIB, and IV were each 2 cases.
  • HIV infection was confirmed concurrently with the diagnosis of lung cancer or complications in 5 of 6 patients.
  • Some cases treated for both lung cancer and HIV, had a relatively good clinical course.

  • [Title] A Japanese Lung Cancer Registry study: prognosis of 13,010 resected lung cancers.
  • PURPOSE: The validation of tumor, node, metastasis staging system in terms of prognosis is an indispensable part of establishing a better staging system in lung cancer.
  • METHODS: In 2005, 387 Japanese institutions submitted information regarding the prognosis and clinicopathologic profiles of patients who underwent pulmonary resections for primary lung neoplasms in 1999 to the Japanese Joint Committee of Lung Cancer Registry.
  • The data of 13,010 patients with only lung carcinoma histology (97.6%) were analyzed in terms of prognosis and clinicopathologic characteristics.
  • For the small cell histology (n = 390), the 5-year survival rates according to clinical (c) and pathologic (p) stages were as follows: 58.8% (n = 161) and 58.3% (n = 127) for IA, 58.0% (n = 77) and 60.2% (n = 79) for IB, 47.1% (n = 17) and 40.6% (n = 29) for IIA, 25.3% (n = 38) and 41.1% (n = 29) for IIB, 29.0% (n = 61) and 28.3% (n = 60) for IIIA, 36.3% (n = 19) and 34.6% (n = 40) for IIIB, and 27.8% (n = 12) and 30.8% for IV (n = 13).
  • For the non-small cell histology (n = 12,620), the 5-year survival rates according to c-stage and p-stage were as follows: 77.3% (n = 5642) and 83.9% (n = 4772) for IA, 59.8% (n = 3081) and 66.3% (n = 2629) for IB, 54.1% (n = 205) and 61.0% (n = 361) for IIA, 43.9% (n = 1227) and 47.4% (n = 1330) for IIB, 38.3% (n = 1628) and 32.8% (n = 1862) for IIIA, 32.6% (n = 526) and 29.6% (n = 1108) for IIIB, and 26.5% (n = 198) and 23.1% (n = 375) for IV.
  • Adenocarcinoma, female gender, and age less than 50 years were significant favorable prognostic factors.
  • CONCLUSION: This large registry study provides benchmark prognostic statistics for lung cancer.
  • Otherwise, the present tumor, node, metastasis staging system well characterizes the stage-specific prognoses.

  • [Title] Validation of the proposed International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer non-small cell lung cancer staging system revisions for advanced bronchioloalveolar carcinoma using data from the California Cancer Registry.
  • BACKGROUND: Recently, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) has proposed significant modifications to the existing TNM and stage grouping classifications affecting the T4 and M descriptors.
  • There were 657 patients with stage IIIB and IV disease who formed the primary analysis of the changes to T4 and M descriptors.
  • The primary outcome measured was overall survival (OS) for stage-specific comparisons of the existing to the proposed staging systems, using the Kaplan-Meier method.
  • RESULTS: Using the proposed criteria, 162 (25%) of the 657 patients with advanced BAC were reclassified: 73 patients with multiple lesions in the same lobe as T3 (stage II T3N0M0 [n = 53], stage IIIA T3N1-2M0 [n = 18], stage IIIB T3N3M0 [n = 1] or T3NXM0 [n = 1]); 89 patients with ipsilateral intrapulmonary metastasis were reclassified as T4 (stage IIIA T4N0-N1M0 [n = 54], stage IIIB T4N2-3M0 [n = 23] or T4NXM0 [n = 12]).

  • [Title] Results of surgical resection for patients with large cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • PURPOSE: The clinical features of large cell carcinoma (LCC) of the lung have remained unclear due to the low incidence of the disease.
  • The mean smoking pack-year index was 49.9 in the patients with LCC, 27.1 in 625 patients with adenocarcinoma, and 52.5 in 266 patients with squamous cell carcinoma, and this was significantly higher in the patients with LCC than in those with adenocarcinoma.
  • The mean tumor diameter was 38 mm for LCC, 28 mm for adenocarcinoma, and 39 mm for squamous cell carcinoma.
  • The pathological stage was IA in 11 patients, IB in 11, II in 12, IIIA in 16, IIIB in 5, and IV in 2.
  • The post-operative 5-year survival rate was 60.5% for LCC, 64.3% for large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma, 67.0% for adenocarcinoma, and 50.1% for squamous cell carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The tumor diameter was significantly larger for LCC than for adenocarcinoma at the time of diagnosis.
  • The proportion of smokers and the smoking pack-year index in patients with LCC were significantly higher than those of adenocarcinoma.
  • The surgical results were similar between LCC and other non-small cell lung carcinomas.
