  • [Title] Bioelectric impedance spectroscopy underestimates fat-free mass compared to dual energy X-ray absorptiometry in incurable cancer patients.
  • BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Weight loss is frequently seen in advanced cancer.
  • We examined in a prospective, comparative study if BIS could accurately estimate fat-free mass (FFM) in cancer patients compared to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA).
  • SUBJECTS/METHODS: The study was based on 132 consecutive incurable cancer patients with solid tumours in a University hospital outpatient clinic.
  • CONCLUSIONS: BIS by standard equations grossly underestimates FFM compared to DXA in cancer patients.

  • [Title] [Systemic therapy of male breast cancer].
  • Due to its low incidence there is only few information on optimal systemic therapy of male breast cancer.
  • There are no prospective randomized trials, neither for early breast cancer nor for advanced stages.
  • In terms of epidemiology, cellular receptors or genetics there exist some significant differences between male and female breast cancer.
  • Therefore, the possibility to extrapolate treatment recommendation for male patients from female breast cancer-trials is limited.
  • Cytostatic therapy seems to be as effective as in female breast cancer patients.
  • Nevertheless, convincing prospective trials for the management of early and advanced male breast cancer need to be performed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: We investigated the barriers to referral to inpatient palliative care units (PCUs) through a qualitative study across various sources of information, including terminal cancer patients, their families, physicians, and nurses.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: There were 63 participants, including 13 advanced cancer patients, 10 family members, 20 physicians, and 20 nurses in palliative care and acute care cancer settings from five regional cancer institutes in Japan.
  • The leading barriers were (1) a negative image of PCUs by patients and families (n = 39), (2) delay of termination of anti-cancer treatment by physicians in the general wards (n = 24), (3) unwillingness to end anti-cancer treatment and denial of the fatal nature of the disease by patients and families (n = 22), (4) patient's wish to receive care from familiar physicians and nurses (n = 20), and (5) insufficient knowledge of PCUs by medical staff in general wards (n = 17).
  • In addition, early introduction of palliative care options to patients and communication skills training regarding breaking bad news are relevant issues for a smooth transition from anti-cancer treatment to palliative care.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Hsp90: a novel target for cancer therapy.
  • Experiments with these drugs have shown that Hsp90 is required for maintaining the malignant phenotype of cancer cells.
  • The basis for the therapeutic index (selective toxicity to cancer cells) of Hsp90 inhibitors is complex and may have to do with induction of degradation of mutant oncoproteins and other proteins necessary for their proliferation and survival as well as to an enhanced requirement of these cells for Hsp90 stress-survival functions.
  • Based on these data, 17-AAG, an ansamycin antibiotic inhibitor of Hsp90, is being tested extensively in clinical trials in patients with advanced cancer.
  • These trials demonstrate that the biologic function of Hsp90 can be inhibited in patients and antitumor activity has been noted in patients with breast cancer, multiple myeloma and other cancers.
  • This article will review the preclinical data which supports the testing of Hsp90 inhibitors as cancer drugs and update the reader on the current status of the ongoing clinical trials of Hsp90 inhibitors.

  • [Title] Laparoscopy and ovarian cancer: a paradigm change in the management of ovarian cancer?
  • A MEDLINE search was conducted using the keywords "laparoscopy ovarian cancer," "laparoscopy and borderline ovarian tumors," "advanced stage ovarian cancer," "laparoscopic cytoreduction ovarian cancer," "laparoscopy intraperitoneal catheter," "port-site metastases," and "carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum."
  • The publications were further limited to English-language articles, those addressing adnexal mass management, early stage ovarian cancer, and advanced stage ovarian cancer treatments.
  • The articles were divided into 4 broad categories: adnexal masses, low malignant potential tumors, early stage ovarian cancer, and advanced ovarian cancer.
  • The current literature defining the role of laparoscopy in the diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer is limited to case reports, case series, and cohort studies.
  • However, these limited studies suggest equal efficacy of laparoscopy compared with laparotomy in both early and advanced stage ovarian cancer.

  • In the literature there are no data about this treatment in HIV-positive patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • At the Aviano Cancer Center, we used the cetuximab/Folfiri regimen and concomitant HAART in an HIV-positive patient with metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • This case suggests that, in the HAART era, a multidisciplinary approach can be offered to HIV patients with advanced cancer when they have good performance status, resulting in efficacious control of the HIV infection.

  • [Title] Impact of preoperative endoscopic ultrasound on non-small cell lung cancer staging.
  • AIM: To determine if the addition of preoperative endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) to non-small cell lung cancer staging can reduce the proportion of patients in whom malignant mediastinal lymph nodes (inoperable disease) are discovered at surgery.
  • METHODS: All patients with lung cancer who underwent mediastinoscopy or thoracotomy for cancer diagnosis, staging, or treatment from 1999 to 2005 were identified.
  • The control group was composed of similar patients who had not undergone preoperative EUS, and were frequency matched to those in the EUS group in a 3:1 ratio by preoperative cancer stage.
  • The proportion of patients in whom malignant mediastinal lymph nodes were diagnosed at surgery was the primary outcome.
  • Overall, in the EUS group, 3 of 44 patients (6.8%) were found to have malignant mediastinal lymph nodes at surgery, compared with 41 of 132 patients (31.1%) in the control group (p = 0.003).
  • In patients undergoing thoracotomy for cancer resection, 3% in the EUS group, compared with 20% in the control group, were found to have malignant mediastinal lymph nodes at surgery (p = 0.01).
  • There was also a trend toward lower yield of mediastinoscopy done for cancer diagnosis or staging in the EUS group (p = 0.08).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative EUS in lung cancer patients may reduce unnecessary surgery at which advanced inoperable disease is discovered.

  • [Title] Will improvement in quality of life (QOL) impact fatigue in patients receiving radiation therapy for advanced cancer?
  • BACKGROUND: Fatigue has a significant impact on the quality of life (QOL) of cancer patients.
  • Recent research has suggested that physical activity can reduce fatigue in patients receiving active cancer treatment.
  • In this project, we examined the impact that participation in a randomized controlled trial of a multidisciplinary intervention designed to impact overall QOL had on fatigue for advanced cancer patients actively receiving treatment.
  • METHODS: Patients with newly diagnosed cancer were randomly assigned to an 8-session structured multidisciplinary intervention or a standard-care arm at the beginning of their course of radiotherapy (RT) designed to impact QOL.
  • Clinically, this structured multidisciplinary intervention had no impact on fatigue, and there was the suggestion the multiple sessions may have contributed to worse fatigue during active cancer treatment.

  • Fluorescence photodetection (PD) used in combination with surgical resection of malignant tissues has been suggested to improve recovery.
  • Based on promising in vivo results for the detection of bladder cancer, hypericin (Hy), a natural photosensitizer (PS), stands as a good candidate for the photodetection of ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Multidimensional problems among advanced cancer patients in Cuba: awareness of diagnosis is associated with better patient status.
  • Cancer is one of the major causes of death in Cuba, and in current practice, patients are not usually informed of their diagnosis.
  • Cuban cancer patients with advanced disease completed the Palliative Outcome Scale (POS), and the researcher elicited patients' knowledge of their condition and prognosis.
  • The POS consists of 12 items that address the clinical, psychosocial, spiritual, family, and service delivery elements considered relevant to patients with advanced disease.
  • Of the 91 patients who participated in the study, 41% knew they had cancer and 9% were believed to be aware that they were dying.
  • This study adds to knowledge about characteristics of terminal cancer patients in Cuba and the factors contributing to patient burden.
  • It is the first study to explore the palliative care needs of Cuban patients with advanced cancer.

  • [Title] Predictors of engagement in a coping and communication support intervention for older patients with advanced cancer.
  • OBJECTIVES: To examine patterns and predictors of engagement in a coping and communication support (CCS) intervention tailored to the preferences of middle-aged and older patients in the early treatment phase for late-stage cancer.
  • DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial examining processes and outcomes of a CCS intervention for patients with late-stage cancer over time.
  • SETTING: Two ambulatory cancer clinics providing care for underserved populations in Cleveland.
  • African-American patients (P=.007) and those with a higher blunting style (P<.01), reporting more family discord in cancer communication (P=.009), and receiving fewer active cancer treatments (P=.008) were more engaged in the CCS intervention in the initial months.
  • Such interventions may be especially important to patients using more avoidant behaviors, experiencing more family discord communicating about cancer, or receiving fewer aggressive treatments in the early treatment phase for late-stage cancer.

  • [Title] Cancer in the London prison population, 1986-2005.
  • BACKGROUND: Little research has investigated cancer care in UK prisons.
  • We wished to identify the number of new cases and the most common cancer diagnoses occurring each year in London prisoners, and the place of death for those who died from their disease.
  • METHODS: Using the database of the Thames Cancer Registry, we identified cancer diagnoses in residents of seven London prisons from 1986 to 2005 and the place of death of patients dying from their disease between 1996 and 2005.
  • RESULTS: On average, 31 patients were recorded as diagnosed with cancer while in prison within each 5-year period.
  • In women, 83% (85/102) of diagnoses were in situ carcinoma of the cervix, and in men, 19% (11/57) were of lung cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: London prisons contribute a small number of patients each year who require NHS cancer care, including those with advanced cancer who are released before death.
  • Future studies should investigate cancer incidence for the national prison population, methods for improving screening coverage and follow-up, the timeliness of access to cancer treatments and end-of-life care, and prisoners' and health professionals' experiences of care.

  • [Title] The role of chemical neurolysis in cancer pain.
  • Pain continues to be a significant symptom burden in cancer patients, with prevalence in 53% of patients at all stages of cancer and as high as 58% to 69% in those with advanced cancer.
  • Neurolytic blocks are a mainstay in the armamentarium of cancer pain management, more so in intractable pain from advanced cancer.
  • Here we discuss the use of various neurolytic blocks for cancer pain and detail some of the recent literature and our experience.

  • Although rare, chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) represents an important paradigm for understanding the molecular events leading to malignant transformation of primitive hematopoietic progenitors.
  • CML was the first cancer to be associated with a defined genetic abnormality, BCR-ABL, that is necessary and sufficient for initiating chronic phase disease as well as the first cancer to be treated with molecular targeted therapy.
  • Malignant progenitors or leukemia stem cells (LSCs) evolve as a result of both epigenetic and genetic events that alter hematopoietic progenitor differentiation, proliferation, survival, and self-renewal.
  • On subverting developmental processes normally responsible for maintaining robust life-long hematopoiesis, the LSCs are able to evade the majority of current cancer treatments that target rapidly dividing cells.
  • Combined therapies targeting aberrant properties of LSC may obviate therapeutic resistance and relapse in advanced phase and therapeutically recalcitrant CML.

  • A series of 123 primary resected adenocarcinomas of the distal esophagus, arising in association with Barrett's esophagus, and corresponding normal squamous epithelium (n = 12) and non-malignant Barrett's mucosa (n = 11), were investigated by means of quantitative RT-PCR for expression of TGF-beta1, using paraffin embedded tissue samples.
  • Relative overexpression of the TGF-beta1 gene was associated with advanced UICC stage (III/IV vs. I/II; P = 0.009), depth of tumor infiltration (pT3 vs. pT1/2; P < 0.001), nodal involvement (pN1 vs. pN0; P = 0.006), and lymphatic vessel invasion (L1 vs. L0; P = 0.011).
  • Our data show that TGF-beta1 overexpression is associated with advanced stage of esophageal adenocarcinoma and implies a negative impact on survival.
  • The TGF-beta pathway may be a potential target for molecular therapies of advanced tumors of this entity.

  • [Title] Risk factors for delayed presentation and referral of symptomatic cancer: evidence for common cancers.
  • BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that the known poorer survival from cancer in the United Kingdom, compared with other European countries, can be attributed to more advanced cancer stage at presentation.
  • RESULTS: Across cancer sites, non-recognition of symptom seriousness is the main patient-mediated factor resulting in increased time to presentation.
  • There is strong evidence of an association between older age and patient delay for breast cancer, between lower socio-economic status and delay for upper gastrointestinal and urological cancers and between lower education level and delay for breast and colorectal cancers.
  • Fear of cancer is a contributor to delayed presentation, while sanctioning of help seeking by others can be a powerful mediator of reduced time to presentation.
  • For practitioner delay, 'misdiagnosis' occurring either through treating patients symptomatically or relating symptoms to a health problem other than cancer, was an important theme across cancer sites.
  • CONCLUSION: Having sought help for potential cancer symptoms, it is therefore important that practitioners recognise these symptoms, and examine, investigate and refer appropriately.

  • [Title] Pre-operative tumor assessment of patients with gastric cancer based on virtual endoscopy using multidetector-row computer tomography.
  • BACKGROUND: The possibilities and limitations of computer tomography (CT) examination for detecting primary gastric cancer tumors have been poorly understood.
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate the pre-operative assessment of gastric cancer tumors using 32-multidetector row-CT.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study of the pre-operative assessment of gastric cancer tumors using 32-multidetector row-CT was carried out.
  • Twenty-seven advanced cancer tumors (75%) were assessed based on 2-D CT images and 27 larger tumors (>40 mm) (69%) were assessed based on 2-D CT images.
  • CONCLUSION: The findings of the present study show that CT assessment of tumors is feasible in patients with advanced gastric cancer.
  • Future studies are required to fully explore the ability of MD-CT to assess tumor volume in advanced gastric cancer cases and to determine the optimum application of this approach.

  • [Title] A review of the benefits of whole body exercise during and after treatment for breast cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Recently, there has been a noticeable increase in empirical literature surrounding the benefits of exercise for breast cancer patients.
  • Consistent support for all types of aerobic exercise was most evident in studies of patients during adjuvant cancer treatments (chemotherapy and radiotherapy), compared with post-treatment studies.
  • The evidence which suggested that aerobic exercise limits cancer-related fatigue was particularly strong.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Additional studies with higher methodological quality are required in this clinically relevant area to substantiate current indications particularly for patient subgroups (e.g. older people, those with advanced cancer and the disadvantaged).
  • RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: It is important for all healthcare professionals involved in the care of individuals affected by breast cancer to be aware of the evidence surrounding the benefits of exercise and to encourage patients to increase physical activity and improve their overall health and well-being.

  • [Title] Pilot phase III immunotherapy study in early-stage breast cancer patients using oxidized mannan-MUC1 [ISRCTN71711835].
  • To date, clinical trials against MUC1 have included advanced cancer patients.
  • Herein, we report a trial using early stage breast cancer patients and injection of oxidized mannan-MUC1.
  • METHOD: In a randomized, double-blind study, 31 patients with stage II breast cancer and with no evidence of disease received subcutaneous injections of either placebo or oxidized mannan-MUC1, to immunize against MUC1 and prevent cancer reoccurrence/metastases.
  • RESULTS: After more than 5.5 years had elapsed since the last patient began treatment (8.5 years from the start of treatment of the first patient), the recurrence rate in patients receiving the placebo was 27% (4/15; the expected rate of recurrence in stage II breast cancer); those receiving immunotherapy had no recurrences (0/16), and this finding was statistically significant (P = 0.0292).
  • CONCLUSION: The results suggest that, in early breast cancer, MUC1 immunotherapy is beneficial, and that a larger phase III study should be undertaken.

  • [Title] The daily impact of pain from metastatic breast cancer on spousal relationships: a dyadic electronic diary study.
  • Women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) experience high levels of emotional distress and pain.
  • Although individuals often rely on their intimate partners to provide physical and emotional support when they are in pain, the daily impact of pain on the spousal relationship in the context of advanced cancer is unclear.
  • Patients and partners rated the patient's pain, their own mood (circumplex adjectives), the provision/receipt of social support, and the degree to which cancer interfered with their relationship.

  • [Title] Addressing fertility needs of breast cancer patients: oncology perspective.
  • Premenopausal women represent approximately 23% of women diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • As the medial age of first pregnancy increases in developed countries, a greater proportion of women are diagnosed with breast cancer at a time when they have not yet completed their family.
  • For these women, the impact of breast cancer treatment on their reproductive capacity can be of significant concern and may influence their treatment decisions.
  • Despite these concerns only a proportion of premenopausal women with breast cancer are informed about their treatment choices in light of their reproductive needs.
  • The diagnosis of cancer itself as well as systemic cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and hormonal therapy, can delay and/or reduce the reproductive capacity.
  • Special fertility considerations are required in women with family history and/or evidence of genetic predisposition to breast cancer as strategies for risk reduction may impact on their fertility choices.
  • Finally, as survival of women with metastatic breast cancer increases, women with advanced cancer who become pregnant pose unique management challenges for oncologists and obstetricians alike.

  • [Title] Are patients with skin cancer at lower risk of developing colorectal or breast cancer?
  • Ultraviolet exposure may reduce the risk of colorectal and breast cancer as the result of rising vitamin D levels.
  • Because skin cancer is positively related to sun exposure, the authors hypothesized a lower incidence of breast and colorectal cancer after skin cancer diagnosis.
  • They analyzed the incidence of colorectal and breast cancer diagnosed from 1972 to 2002 among 26,916 Netherlands skin cancer patients (4,089 squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), 19,319 basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and 3,508 cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM)).
  • A markedly decreased risk of colorectal cancer was found for subgroups supposedly associated with the highest accumulated sun exposure: men (standardized incidence ratio (SIR) = 0.83, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.71, 0.97); patients with SCC (SIR = 0.64, 95% CI: 0.43, 0.93); older patients at SCC diagnosis (SIR = 0.59, 95% CI: 0.37, 0.88); and patients with a SCC or BCC lesion on the head and neck area (SIR = 0.59, 95% CI: 0.36, 0.92 for SCC and SIR = 0.78, 95% CI: 0.63, 0.97 for BCC).
  • Patients with CMM exhibited an increased risk of breast cancer, especially advanced breast cancer (SIR = 2.20, 95% CI: 1.10, 3.94) and older patients at CMM diagnosis (SIR = 1.87, 95% CI: 1.14, 2.89).
  • Study results suggest a beneficial effect of continuous sun exposure against colorectal cancer.
  • The higher risk of breast cancer among CMM patients may be related to socioeconomic class, both being more common in the affluent group.

  • [Title] To what extent does meaning mediate adaptation to cancer? The relationship between physical suffering, meaning in life, and connection to others in adjustment to cancer.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study builds on previous work that explored the lived experience of meaning in advanced cancer.
  • The aims were to explore the associations of suffering (physical and existential distress) and coping (via social support) with psychological distress and global meaning using a battery of instruments among adults attending an Australian metropolitan cancer service (n=100).
  • On the basis of this study, it is concluded that the factors related to suffering clearly promote psychological distress, and the reverse is true for global meaning for those living with cancer.
  • SIGNIFICANCE OF RESULTS: This study speaks to the clinical complexity of the dynamic experience of suffering and meaning in cancer.

  • [Title] The use of long-term low-molecular weight heparin for the treatment of venous thromboembolism in palliative care patients with advanced cancer: a case series of sixty two patients.
  • The advantages of low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) over warfarin, in the treatment of cancer associated venous thromboembolism (VTE) are well reported.
  • We report a case series of 62 patients with advanced malignancy and VTE treated with long-term LMWH according to either the CLOT (full dose) or Montreal (reduced dose) regime.
  • No patients developed evidence of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia or osteoporosis.Long-term LMWH appears effective in treatment of VTE in the palliative care population with advanced cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: To investigate the possible relationship between the clinico-pathologic characteristics and the survival of gastric cancer patients, the expression status of DNA-PKcs was determined in 279 consecutive gastric cancers.
  • The loss of DNA-PKcs expression was significantly associated with advanced cancer (p<0.001), lymphatic invasion (p=0.001), lymph node metastasis (p=0.009), and advanced pTNM stage (p=0.009).
  • Moreover, the loss of DNA-PKcs expression was identified to correlate with a lower survival in the subgroup of stage I gastric cancer patients (p=0.037).
  • CONCLUSION: The loss of DNA-PKcs expression was found in 23% of human gastric cancers and this was identified to significantly correlate with poor patient survival, especially for stage I gastric cancer patients.

  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the content and frequency of communication about health-related quality of life (HRQOL) during outpatient encounters between oncologists and their patients with advanced cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: HRQOL discussions between oncologists and patients are common, but the emphasis is often on treatment (e.g. side effects) and symptoms (e.g. pain) even in patients with advanced disease.
  • Given the often intense emotional experience of patients with advanced cancer, oncologists may need to pay more attention to psychological, social, and spiritual HRQOL concerns.

  • [Title] Breast cancer after severe burn injury: coincidence or consequence?
  • Malignant neoplasms arising in burn scars are well known but rarely encountered.
  • We discuss personal experience with two patients, both female, who were diagnosed with advanced breast cancer many years after severe thermal injury to their breasts.
  • Our experience, similar to the scant previously published data, reinforces that burn scars demand a high index of suspicion for the presence of an underlying malignant neoplasm.
  • The literature and our study suggest that breast cancer may occur after severe thermal injury.
  • Breast lesions in this or a similar clinical scenario should be considered malignant until proven otherwise, and a tissue diagnosis must be pursued without delay.

  • [Title] Elevated fibroblast growth factor 23 in women with malignant ovarian tumors.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 2002 and September 2003 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, plasma or serum FGF23 concentrations were measured in 39 healthy women and in 14 with benign ovarian tumors, 14 with early-stage ovarian cancer, and 13 with advanced-stage ovarian cancer.
  • Immunohistochemistry using anti-human FGF23 antibodies was performed on tissue from benign masses and advanced-stage tumors.
  • RESULTS: Serum or plasma FGF23 concentrations were significantly higher in women with advanced-stage ovarian cancer compared with concentrations in women with early-stage ovarian cancer or benign disease or in healthy women.
  • Serum iFGF23 and cFGF23 concentrations were positively correlated with serum phosphorus among women with ovarian cancer.
  • Immunohistochemistry detected FGF23 tissue staining in malignant ovarian cancer cells.
  • CONCLUSION: Serum or plasma FGF23 concentrations are elevated in patients with advanced-stage epithellal ovarian cancer without reductions in serum phosphate concentrations.
  • The presence of elevated FGF23 concentrations in patients with an ovarian mass should suggest advanced-stage disease.

  • [Title] Cadmium burden and the risk and phenotype of prostate cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Studies on the association between prostate cancer and cadmium exposure have yielded conflicting results.
  • This study explored cadmium burden on the risk and phenotype of prostate cancer in men with no evident environmental exposure.
  • METHODS: Hospital-based 261 prostate cancer cases and 267 controls with benign diseases were recruited from four hospitals in Taiwan.
  • Statistical analyses measured the prostate cancer risk associated with BCd and CAUCd separately, controlling for age, smoking and institution.
  • However, cases with higher BCd and CAUCd levels tended to be at more advanced stages and to have higher Gleason scores.
  • The prostate cancer cases with Gleason scores of > or = 8 had an odds ratio of 2.89 (95% confidence interval 1.25-6.70), compared with patients with scores of 2-6.
  • CONCLUSION: Higher CAUCd and BCd levels may be associated with advanced cancer phenotypes, but there was only a tenuous association between cadmium and prostate cancer.

  • [Title] The role of Id-1 in chemosensitivity and epirubicin-induced apoptosis in bladder cancer cells.
  • Recurrence and progression are the major problems in the treatment of bladder cancer.
  • Increased expression of Id-1, a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor, has recently been shown in several types of advanced cancer.
  • The objective of this study was to investigate the role of Id-1 in the chemosensitivity of bladder cancer cells, and the effect of Id-1 on chemotherapeutic drug-induced apoptosis in bladder cancer cells.
  • Wound closure assay showed up-regulation of Id-1 leading to improved migration abilities of bladder cancer cells under chemotherapy.
  • Our results suggest that up-regulation of Id-1 in bladder cancer cells lead to increased cell viability in response to epirubicin by its improved anti-apoptotic role, and down-regulation of Id-1 increases cellular sensitivity to epirubicin by increased anticancer drug-induced apoptosis.

  • [Title] Association of leptin -2548G/A and leptin receptor Q223R polymorphisms with increased risk for oral cancer.
  • PURPOSE: We investigated the possible association of DNA polymorphisms -2548G/A and Q223R in the leptin (LEP) and leptin receptor (LEPR) genes, respectively, which both affect the amount of circulating cytokine-type hormone leptin, with risk for development of oral cancer.
  • RESULTS: Compared to controls, the homozygous high gene expression genotype A/A of the LEP -2548G/A polymorphism was significantly increased in the subgroups of patients with advanced cancer stages (P = 0.0001; OR 9.0, 95% CI 2.62-30.89), with a positive family history of cancer (P = 0.0346; OR 3.55, 95% CI 1.15-11.01), without tobacco abuse (P = 0.0051; OR 9.69, 95% CI 1.03-91.24), and without alcohol abuse (P = 0.0472; OR 2.16, 95% CI 0.87-5.37).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The above findings are consistent with the growth-promoting role of leptin in cancer and its induction effect on angiogenesis and metastasis.

  • [Title] Cytokine profile in Indian women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and cancer cervix.
  • Cervical cancer develops from the preneoplastic cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN).
  • The objective of this study was to assess the production of cytokines by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in Indian women with cancer cervix and CIN.
  • Sixty patients with cancer cervix (including all FIGO stage I-IV), 35 patients with CIN, and 30 healthy controls were enrolled in this study.
  • The PBMC culture supernatant was collected for cytokine estimations by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (interleukin-2 [IL-2], interferon-gamma [IFN-gamma], interleukin-4 [IL-4], and interleukin-10 [IL-10]).
  • IL-2 levels showed a significant decline in high-grade CIN and cancer patients, whereas IFN-gamma levels were decreased only in patients with advanced cancer cervix.
  • An increase in the levels of IL-4 and IL-10 was found in all cancer cervix and CIN grade III patients, as compared to those with early CIN grades and healthy controls.
  • The cytokine ratios decreased significantly (P < 0.001 for all the ratios), when cervical cancer patients were compared with controls and CIN cases.
  • These data reinforce the need for detailed analysis of immune dysregulation in CIN and cancer cervix patients.

  • Gastro-oesophageal cancer is associated with a high incidence of cachexia.
  • We investigated PIF core peptide (PIF-CP) mRNA expression in tumour and benign tissue from patients with gastro-oesophageal cancer and in gastro-oesophageal biopsies for healthy volunteers.
  • Tumour tissue and adjacent benign tissue were collected from patients with gastric and oesophageal cancer (n=46) and from benign tissue only in healthy controls (n=11).
  • In the cancer patients, PIF-CP mRNA was detected in 27 (59%) tumour samples and 31 (67%) adjacent benign tissue samples.
  • Expression was higher in tumour tissue (P=0.031) and benign tissue (P=0.022) from cancer patients compared with healthy controls.
  • In the cancer patients, tumour and adjacent benign tissue PIF-CP mRNA concentrations were correlated with each other (P<0.0001, r=0.73) but did not correlate with weight loss or prognosis.
  • Post-translational modification of PIF may be a key step in determining the biological role of PIF in the patient with advanced cancer and cachexia.

  • In the past 10 years, positron emission tomography (PET), usually with F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG), has become an important imaging modality in patients with lung cancer.
  • FDG-PET is recommended for the diagnosis of indeterminate pulmonary nodules, for which it is significantly more accurate than computed tomography (CT) in the distinction between benign and malignant lesions.
  • Ongoing studies now concentrate on more advanced clinical applications, such as the planning of radiotherapy, the response evaluation after the induction of therapy, the early detection of recurrence, and the use in lung cancer screening.

  • [Title] Screening for colorectal cancer using a quantitative immunochemical faecal occult blood test: a feasibility study in an Asian population.
  • BACKGROUND: The quantitative immunochemical faecal occult blood test (qFOBT) has been shown to be an accurate method of identifying significant colorectal neoplasia including cancer and advanced adenomas.
  • This study reports the results of a Singapore population-based colorectal cancer screening event using the qFOBT.
  • METHODS: This event was held as part of a colorectal cancer awareness exhibition.
  • All asymptomatic individuals above the age of 40 years with no previous colorectal cancer screening in the last 1 year were invited to participate.
  • Three participants had sigmoid cancer and 12 had advanced polyps, all of which were located distally in the sigmoid colon or rectum.
  • CONCLUSION: The qFOBT at a positive faecal haemoglobin threshold of 100 ng/ml has a high positive predictive value and is an effective screening tool for colorectal cancer in an Asian population.

  • [Title] Refusal of medical and surgical interventions by older persons with advanced chronic disease.
  • BACKGROUND: Patients with advanced chronic disease are frequently offered medical and surgical interventions with potentially large trade-offs between benefits and burdens.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the frequency of, reasons for, factors associated with, and outcomes of treatment refusal among older persons with advanced chronic disease.
  • PARTICIPANTS: Two hundred twenty-six community-dwelling persons with advanced cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or congestive heart failure, interviewed at least every 4 months for up to 2 years.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Refusal of medical and surgical interventions other than medications is common among persons with advanced chronic disease, and is associated with a greater desire for, and understanding of, prognostic information.

  • [Title] Healthcare professionals' perceptions of existential distress in patients with advanced cancer.
  • AIM: This paper is a report of an exploration of the phenomenon of existential distress in patients with advanced cancer from the perspectives of healthcare professionals.
  • BACKGROUND: Existential distress is an important concern in patients with advanced cancer; it affects their well-being and needs to be addressed in the provision of holistic care.
  • METHOD: Focus groups were conducted from November 2008 to February 2009 with physicians, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and chaplains working in a palliative care unit that served patients with advanced cancer in Hong Kong.
  • CONCLUSION: This paper acknowledges the lack of an accepted conceptual framework of existential distress in patients with advanced cancer.

  • [Title] Defective differentiation of myeloid and plasmacytoid dendritic cells in advanced cancer patients is not normalized by tyrosine kinase inhibition of the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor.
  • Tumor-derived vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has previously been identified as a causative factor in the disturbed differentiation of myeloid dendritic cells (DC) in advanced cancer patients.
  • To this end, peripheral blood DC (PBDC) precursor and subset frequencies were measured in 13 patients with advanced cancer before and after treatment with AZD2171, a TK inhibitor (TKI) of VEGFR, coadministered with gefitinib, and an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) TKI.
  • Of note, not only myeloid DC but also plasmacytoid DC frequencies were significantly reduced in the blood of the cancer patients prior to treatment, as compared to healthy controls.
  • In conclusion, TK inhibition of VEGFR with AZD2171 does not restore the defective PBDC differentiation observed in advanced cancer patients.

  • INTRODUCTION: Cancer in the elderly is a common health issue in developed societies.
  • RESULTS: One thousand three hundred and seventy-two fit patients (PS 0-1 in 73%) with a median age of 70 years diagnosed with metastatic breast (n=250), colorectal (n=621) or lung cancer (n=501) received chemotherapy from 1991 until 2006.
  • At a median follow-up of 3 years, objective responses were seen in 41% of patients with breast cancer, 25% with colorectal cancer and 31% with lung cancer, while median survival was 21, 16 and 9.4 months, respectively.
  • In multivariate analysis, diagnosis of colorectal or lung cancer, metastases in multiple organ sites, presence of liver/brain/peritoneal deposits, impaired PS and low baseline serum albumin levels were prognostic factors for adverse outcome.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data indicate that relatively fit elderly patients with advanced cancer safely tolerate modern chemotherapy and enjoy disease control in a manner comparable to younger patients.

  • [Title] Screening for colorectal cancer in Italy: 2005 survey.
  • We present the main results from the second survey of the Italian screening programmes for colorectal cancer carried out by the National Centre for Screening Monitoring on behalf of the Ministry of Health.
  • At first screening, the detection rate (DR) per 1000 screened subjects was 3.7 and 16.8 for invasive cancer and advanced adenomas (AA) (adenomas with a diameter > or =1 cm, with villous/tubulo-villous type or with high-grade dysplasia) respectively; the corresponding figures at repeat screening were 1.1 for cancer and 4.9 for AA.
  • The DR of cancer and adenomas increased with age and it was higher among males, 55% of screen-detected cancers were at TNM stage I.
  • The positive predictive value (PPV) was 7.4% for cancer and 32.9% for AA at first screening, and 4.5% for cancer and 20.5% for AA at repeat screening.
  • Among subjects referred to colonoscopy the prevalence of proximal AA and cancer ranged from 5.4 to 11.1%.
  • The overall DR (subjects with at least one advanced lesion) ranged from 3.5 to 7.0%.
  • In conclusion, during 2005 the organised programmes for colorectal cancer screening in Italy increased considerably, covering about one third of the eligible population at a national level.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Minimally invasive approaches show most promise for benign disease and select early esophageal cancers, but their role in more advanced cancer remains controversial due to lack of long-term results.
  • CONCLUSION: As minimally invasive esophagectomy matures, its true value in both benign and malignant disorders will become better defined.

  • [Title] Postmenopausal status, hypertension and obesity as risk factors for malignant transformation in endometrial polyps.
  • OBJECTIVES: We analyzed clinical data and pathological features of six cases of malignant endometrial polyps, to compare these with other examples reported in literature and to define the features of endometrial cancer arising in polyps.
  • Moreover, to clarify the mechanisms of carcinogenesis in malignant endometrial polyps we examined the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), P53 and Ki 67 and their relationships with clinicopathologic characteristics.
  • The main pathological features analyzed were histological types of endometrial cancer and the stage of development of neoplasm.
  • RESULTS: In our study, all malignant endometrial polyps had been detected in postmenopausal women.
  • The majority of our patients with malignant endometrial polyps had risk factors for the development of endometrial carcinoma such as hypertension, obesity and unopposed estrogen therapy.
  • The most common subtypes of endometrial carcinoma in malignant polyps are endometrioid carcinoma and serous papillary carcinoma.
  • P53 and Ki 67 expression, detected in the nuclei of neoplastic cells, was not correlated with COX-2 immunoreactivity, but these markers were associated with more advanced stage, grading, and histologic subtypes of tumor.
  • P53 and Ki 67 overexpression, instead, are associated with advanced stage, histologic subtype and deep myometrial invasion of neoplasm.
