  • [Title] The clinical significance of massive intratumoral lymphocytosis in squamous cell carcinoma of the anus.
  • A recent report indicates that patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal (SCCAC) and intraepithelial lymphocytes have a poor prognosis.
  • These 8 patients (all females) had both more advanced clinical stage than the remaining 269 control SCCAC patients.
  • It is concluded that despite SCCAC patients with massive TILs had a more advanced clinical stage than SCCAC controls, SCCAC with massive TILs patients had a longer survival rate (with no deaths after 5 years) than control cases.

  • [Title] Management of anal cancer in 2010. Part 1: Overview, screening, and diagnosis.
  • Although anal cancer is a rare disease, its incidence is increasing in men and women worldwide.
  • Anal cancer is generally preceded by high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN), which is most prevalent in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive men who have sex with men.
  • Meta-analysis suggests that 80% of anal cancers could be avoided by vaccination against HPV 16/18.
  • Nearly half of all patients with anal cancer present with rectal bleeding.
  • According to the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database, 50% of patients with anal cancer have disease localized to the anus, 29% have regional lymph node involvement or direct spread beyond the primary, and 12% have metastatic disease, while 9% have an unknown stage.
  • Clinical staging of anal carcinoma requires a digital rectal exam and a computed tomography scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis.
  • The 5-year relative survival rates are 80.1% for localized anal cancer, 60.7% for regional disease, and 29.4% for metastatic disease.
  • Part 2 of this two-part review will address the treatment of anal cancer, highlighting studies of chemoradiation.

  • [Title] The impact of 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography on the staging, management and outcome of anal cancer.
  • Accurate inguinal and pelvic nodal staging in anal cancer is important for the prognosis and planning of radiation fields.
  • There is evidence for the role of 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the staging and management of cancer, with early reports of an increasing role in outcome prognostication in a number of tumours.
  • We aimed to determine the effect of FDG-PET on the nodal staging, radiotherapy planning and prognostication of patients with primary anal cancer.
  • Sixty-one consecutive patients with anal cancer who were referred to a tertiary centre between August 1997 and November 2005 were staged with conventional imaging (CIm) (including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging, endoscopic ultrasound and chest X-ray) and by FDG-PET.
  • The stage determined by CIm and the proposed management plan were prospectively recorded and changes in stage and management as a result of FDG-PET assessed.
  • Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was used to estimate survival for the whole cohort and by FDG-PET and CIm stage.
  • The tumour-stage group was changed in 23% (14 out of 61) as a result of FDG-PET (15% up-staged, 8% down-staged).
  • Fourteen percent of T1 patients (3 out of 22), 42% of T2 patients (10 out of 24) and 40% of T3-4 patients (6 out of 15) assessed using CIm, had a change in their nodal or metastatic stage following FDG-PET.
  • FDG-PET shows increased sensitivity over CIm for staging nodal disease in anal cancer and changes treatment intent or radiotherapy prescription in a significant proportion of patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Involved-field, low-dose chemoradiotherapy for early-stage anal carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: To report the results of patients with early-stage anal cancer treated using a low-dose, reduced-volume, involved-field chemoradiotherapy protocol.
  • All were considered to have Stage N0 disease radiologically.
  • CONCLUSION: The results of our study have shown that for patients with anal carcinoma who have residual microscopic or very-small-volume disease, a policy of low-dose, reduced-volume, involved-field chemoradiotherapy produces excellent local control and disease-free survival, with low rates of acute and late toxicity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Squamous cell cancer of the rectum.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum is a rare malignancy.
  • The clear association seen between Human Papilloma Virus and various squamous cancers has not been firmly established for the squamous cell cancer of the rectum.
  • The presentation is nonspecific and patients tend to present with advanced stage disease.
  • Distinction from squamous cell cancer of the anus can be difficult, but can be facilitated by immunohistochemical staining for cytokeratins.
  • Staging of the cancer with endoscopic ultrasound and computed tomography provides essential information on prognosis and can guide therapy.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum is a distinct entity and it is of crucial importance for the practicing Gastroenterologist to be thoroughly familiar with this disease.
  • Compared to adenocarcinoma of the rectum and squamous cell cancer of the anal canal, squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum has different epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, and prognosis but, most importantly, requires a different therapeutic approach.

  • [Title] Anus-preservation treatment for anal cancer: retrospective analysis at a single institution.
  • BACKGROUND: To evaluate anus-preservation treatment for anal cancer.
  • METHODS: Review of 42 patients (24 M/18 F; median age, 70 years; range, 13-95) with stage I-IIIB disease (squamous cell carcinoma [SqCC], 33; adenocarcinoma, 9) who received curative radiotherapy between 1991 and 2004.
  • Five-year functional anus-preservation rate was 64%.
  • In multivariate analysis, OS was affected by performance status (P < 0.001), N stage (P = 0.009), and pathological type (P = 0.006).
  • Only N stage (P = 0.001) affected DFS.
  • CONCLUSION: With careful monitoring of toxicity, non-surgical anus-preservation treatment with good tumor control is feasible.

  • [Title] Impact of overall treatment time on survival and local control in patients with anal cancer: a pooled data analysis of Radiation Therapy Oncology Group trials 87-04 and 98-11.
  • PURPOSE: To determine whether increased duration of radiation therapy (RT) and overall treatment (RX) time has a detrimental effect in anal cancer.
  • Cox proportional hazards models were used with the following variables: RT duration, RT intensity, RX duration, treatment group, age, sex, Karnofsky performance score (KPS), T stage, N stage, and RT dose.
  • Age, sex, KPS, T stage, N stage, and RT dose, but not RT duration, RT intensity, or RX duration, were found to be statistically significant predictors of OS and colostomy-free survival.
  • CONCLUSION: Total treatment time, but not duration of radiation therapy, seems to have a detrimental effect on local failure and colostomy rate in anal cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A suggested modification to FIGO stage III vulvar cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: FIGO Stage III vulvar cancer includes tumors that invade the lower urethra, vagina, or anus, and/or tumors that have metastasized to the inguino-femoral lymph nodes of one groin.
  • We hypothesized that locally advanced stage III vulvar cancer and regional metastatic stage III vulvar cancer (lymph node involvement) have different prognoses.
  • METHODS: Using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registry public use data tapes, we identified patients diagnosed with vulvar carcinoma from 1988 through 2004.
  • The survival difference between stage III patients with locally advanced vulvar cancer and stage III patients with regional metastatic node(s) disease was highly significant (P<10(-10)).
  • Separating locally advanced stage III and regional metastatic stage III disease would improve discrimination (concordance index: 72% vs 69% with the actual staging system).
  • CONCLUSION: Involvement of the inguinal lymph nodes in FIGO (1988) stage III patients carries a significantly worse prognosis compared with invasion of the lower urethra, vagina or anus alone.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Size does matter: can we reduce the radiotherapy field size for selected cases of anal canal cancer undergoing chemoradiation?
  • AIMS: Chemoradiation is the standard of care for the treatment of anal canal cancer, with surgery reserved for salvage.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between August 1998 and August 2004, 30 patients with biopsy-proven squamous cell anal canal cancer were treated with chemoradiation using one phase of treatment throughout.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This single-centre retrospective study supports the treatment for selected cases of anal canal cancer with smaller than standard radiation fields, avoiding prophylactic inguinal nodal irradiation.
  • In future studies we would suggest that consideration is given as to whether omission of prophylactic inguinal nodal irradiation for early stage tumours should be explored.

  • [Title] Radiation dose associated with local control in advanced anal cancer: retrospective analysis of 129 patients.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To retrospectively analyse a large consecutive cohort of patients with anal cancer for treatment-related factors influencing local control and survival.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients referred for primary radiotherapy at Medical University of Vienna in 1990-2002 with anal canal carcinoma without distant metastases were analysed.
  • RESULTS: Median age was 67 years (n=129), the UICC stage distribution was 15%, 58%, and 27% for stages I, II, and III, respectively.
  • Stage and age were significant factors for overall and colostomy-free-survival, N-stage for disease-free-survival.
  • Shorter overall treatment time favoured local control in stage T1-2 (p=.015), higher total radiation dose and female gender were associated with improved local control in T3-4 tumours (p=.021).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results support potential improvement of anal cancer treatment by studying advanced technology such as IMRT, making it possible to tailor high-dose regions.

  • PURPOSE: To evaluate patterns of locoregional failure, and predictors of recurrence and survival in patients treated with chemoradiation for anal cancer.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between September 1992 and August 2004, 167 patients with nonmetastatic squamous cell anal carcinoma were treated with definitive chemoradiation.
  • Multivariate analysis showed that higher T stage and N stage independently predicted for a higher rate of locoregional failure; higher N stage and basaloid subtype independently predicted for a higher rate of distant metastasis; and higher N stage and positive human immunodeficiency virus status independently predicted for a lower rate of overall survival.
  • Among the patients who had locoregional failure, 18 (75%) had failure involving the anus or rectum, 5 (21%) had other pelvic recurrences, and 1 (4%) had inguinal recurrence.
  • The majority of locoregional failures involve the anus and rectum, whereas inguinal recurrences occur rarely.

  • [Title] Photodynamic therapy for anal cancer.
  • Invasive anal cancers are generally successfully treated by combined chemotherapy with radiation therapy (XRT).
  • We examined the treatment and outcome of Photofrin based photodynamic therapy (PDT) in a cohort of patients with anal cancer who failed locally despite chemo-radiation (N=6) and two patients with positive margins of resection after excision of small T(1) squamous cell anal cancers who refused further surgery or chemo-radiation.
  • All patients completed PDT without incident and all have maintained local control of disease in the anal region for the length of follow up (18-48 months).
  • PDT may serve as a new means to salvage local failures and perhaps could be employed as a primary treatment modality in select patients with early stage of disease.

  • PURPOSE: To assess the utility of FDG-PET in anal cancer for staging and impact on radiotherapy planning (RTP), response and detection of recurrent disease.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Fifty histopathological anal cancer patients were reviewed between 1996 and 2006.
  • RESULTS: The non-PET staging was Stage I(8), Stage II(18), Stage III(22), and Stage IV(2)s.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Anal cancer is FDG-PET avid.
  • PET can aid in anal cancer staging and identification of residual disease, recurrent/metastatic disease but warrants further prospective studies.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Anal cancer maximum F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose uptake on positron emission tomography is correlated with prognosis.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate anal cancer uptake of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) measured as the maximum standardized uptake value (SUV(max)) by positron emission tomography (PET) and its correlation with prognostic factors.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study population consisted of 77 patients with stages 0-IIIB anal cancer who underwent pre-treatment FDG-PET.
  • The stage distribution included: 2 stage 0, 7 stage I, 49 stage II, 10 stage IIIA, 9 stage IIIB.
  • Patients with high anal tumor SUV(max) at diagnosis were at an increased risk of persistent or recurrent disease on post-therapy FDG-PET performed less than 4months after completing therapy (p=0.0402).
  • CONCLUSIONS: SUV(max) is a valuable biomarker of anal cancer prognosis, predicting increased risk of lymph node metastasis and worse disease-free survival.

  • [Title] Outcomes and prognostic factors for squamous-cell carcinoma of the anal canal: analysis of patients from the National Cancer Data Base.
  • PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to assess survival and prognostic factors for anal carcinoma in the population.
  • METHODS: Patients with squamous-cell carcinoma of the anal canal were identified from the National Cancer Data Base (1985-2000).
  • Concordance was calculated to assess agreement between American Joint Committee on Cancer stage and actual outcome.
  • RESULTS: Nineteen thousand one hundred ninety-nine patients with anal carcinoma were identified (Stage I, 25.3 percent; Stage II, 51.8 percent; Stage III, 17.1 percent; Stage IV, 5.7 percent).
  • The American Joint Committee on Cancer (6th edition) staging system provided good survival discrimination by stage: I, 69.5 percent; II, 59.0 percent; III, 40.6 percent; and IV, 18.7 percent (concordance index, 0.663).
  • On multivariable analysis, patients with anal carcinoma had a higher risk of death if they were male, >or=65 years old, black, living in lower median incomes areas, and had more advanced T stage tumors, nodal or distant metastases, or poorly differentiated cancers (P < 0.0001).
  • CONCLUSION: Although tumor characteristics and staging affect prognosis, patient factors, such as gender, race, and socioeconomic status, are also important prognostic factors for squamous-cell carcinoma of the anal canal.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Patterns of local disease failure and outcome after salvage surgery in patients with anal cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Salvage surgery for anal cancer is usually reserved for local disease failure, but issues relating to the prediction of local failure and surgical outcome are ill defined.
  • METHODS: Between 1988 and 2000, 254 patients with non-metastatic anal epidermoid carcinoma were treated at a regional cancer centre with radiotherapy (n = 127) or chemoradiotherapy (n = 127).
  • Increasing age (P < 0.001, Cox model), total radiation dose (P = 0.004) and tumour stage (P = 0.010) were independent predictors of local failure.
  • CONCLUSION: In the management of anal cancer, local disease failure is a major clinical problem requiring early detection followed by radical surgery, often accompanied by plastic reconstruction.
  • By implication, these factors favour the centralization of treatment for this uncommon cancer to a multidisciplinary oncology team.

  • [Title] [A case of anal metastasis from sigmoid colon cancer in a long-term survivor who had repeated local excisions].
  • A 72-year-old man underwent sigmoidectomy for sigmoid colon cancer in January 1999.
  • Histopathological examination revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, tub 2, SS, ly2, v2, N1, H0, P0, M0, Stage IIIa, cur A.
  • In March 2001, he complained of an anal bleeding and underwent colonoscopy.
  • It showed a submucosal tumor 15 mm in diameter at the anal canal and the biopsy indicated a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma.
  • This tumor was suspected of metastasis from sigmoid colon cancer and transanal resection was performed in May 2001.
  • Histopathological examination revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, which was the same histological type as primary sigmoid colon cancer, tub 2, A, ly2, v2, RM0.
  • The diagnosis of anal metastasis was made on the basis of three points.
  • First, tumor was covered with anal epithelium.
  • Thirdly, there were no findings of other primary anal cancer.
  • By removing anal canal metastases twice, inguinal lymph node metastases three times and lung metastases in each time, he survived for 11 years after a primary surgery.
  • We reported here because it was a very interesting and rare case that the patient was cancer-free after surgeries as many as seven times.

  • [Title] Association between bone marrow dosimetric parameters and acute hematologic toxicity in anal cancer patients treated with concurrent chemotherapy and intensity-modulated radiotherapy.
  • PURPOSE: To test the hypothesis that the volume of pelvic bone marrow (PBM) receiving 10 and 20 Gy or more (PBM-V(10) and PBM-V(20)) is associated with acute hematologic toxicity (HT) in anal cancer patients treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: We analyzed 48 consecutive anal cancer patients treated with concurrent chemotherapy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy.
  • RESULTS: Twenty patients (42%) had Stage T3-4 disease; 15 patients (31%) were node positive.
  • CONCLUSION: This analysis supports the hypothesis that increased low-dose radiation to PBM is associated with acute HT during chemoradiotherapy for anal cancer.
  • Techniques to limit bone marrow irradiation may reduce HT in anal cancer patients.

  • [Title] Is local excision after complete pathological response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation for rectal cancer an acceptable treatment option?
  • PURPOSE: The role of local excision in patients with good histological response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation for locally advanced rectal cancer is unclear, mainly because of possible regional nodal involvement.
  • This study aims to evaluate the correlation between pathological T and N stages following neoadjuvant chemoradiation for locally advanced rectal cancer and the outcome of patients with mural pathological complete response undergoing local excision.
  • Between January 1997 and December 2007, 320 patients with T3 to 4Nx, TxN+ or distal (≤ 6 cm from the anus) T2N0 rectal cancer underwent neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiation followed by surgery.
  • In the 291 patients undergoing radical surgery, the pathological T stage correlated with the N stage (P = .036).

  • [Title] Preservation of the continence function after intersphincteric resection using a prolapsing technique in the patients with low rectal cancer and its clinical prognosis.
  • BACKGROUND: The technique of intersphincteric resection of tumors combined with coloanal anastomosis has been used to avoid permanent colostomy for patients with a rectal cancer located < 5 cm from the anal verge.
  • This study aimed at assessing the preservation of continence function of the residual rectum and the clinical prognosis of patients with lower rectal cancer after intersphincteric resection using a prolapsing technique.
  • (1) pathological evidence of rectal cancer and the tumors within distal margins located 5 cm or less from the anus by preoperative endoscopic examination;.
  • From January 2000 to June 2004, 23 patients with low rectal cancer were included in this study.
  • The patients were followed for assessment of the function of the residual rectum and of cancer recurrence after the operations.
  • RESULTS: The median tumor distance from the anal margin was 4.5 (range 3.5 - 5.0) cm and the mean distal surgical margin 1.6 (range 1.0 - 2.0) cm.
  • Cancer was classified into Stage I (30.4%), Stage II (47.8%), and Stage III (21.7%) according to the TNM classification.
  • Anal manometer measurements showed a decrease of pressure during the resting time after intersphincteric resection and this change remained during the period of follow-up.
  • CONCLUSIONS: More residual rectum function after the surgery may be preserved by intersphincteric resection of low rectum cancer.

  • BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy (RT) has become the primary treatment of choice for anal cancer in an effort to avoid colostomy.
  • Early stage disease, low T-score and absence of infiltration in adjacent organs were associated with a reduced need for colostomy in univariate analysis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In approximately one-third of the patients treated by anal sphincter saving management with curative aimed primary RT, the creation of a colostomy appeared to be necessary for RT complications and local treatment failure.
  • Therefore, patients should be well informed regarding the considerable risk of need for colostomy after RT for anal cancer.

  • BACKGROUND: This retrospective study evaluated the efficacy, prognostic factors, and toxicity of combined radiochemotherapy for anal cancer.
  • Tumor stage, nodal status, age, sex, tumor site, tumor resection, and radiation dose were analyzed for prognostic value.
  • Higher T category was associated with inferior prognosis for colostomy-free survival (p = 0.000), male sex for local control (p = 0.004) and diseasespecific survival (p = 0.002), and tumor site at the anal margin for local control (p = 0.03).
  • 4 of 7 patients with recurrent anal margin tumors had human papillomavirus (HPV)-related disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Combined radiochemotherapy for anal cancer is a highly effective therapy with pronounced acute and minor late toxicity.
  • In the case of higher T stage, male sex, and cancer at the anal margin, treatment intensification should be considered.

  • [Title] Pre-operative assessment of extramural invasion and sphincteral involvement in rectal cancer by magnetic resonance imaging with phased-array coil.
  • OBJECTIVE: Pre-operative staging of rectal cancer should identify patients with extrarectal spread, who might benefit from pre-operative radiotherapy, and patients with minimal sphincteral involvement, who can avoid permanent colostomy.
  • The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to predict tumour stage and sphincter status.
  • MRI correctly evaluated the infiltration of the anal sphincters in 87% of patients (7 of 8 patients with low rectal tumour).

  • [Title] A population-based analysis of temporal trends in the incidence of squamous anal canal cancer in relation to the HIV epidemic.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal (SCCA) is etiologically linked to human papillomavirus, and its incidence is increased among the immunosuppressed.
  • The gap in SCCA incidence between women and men decreased from a ratio of 1.6:1 in the pre-HIV era to 1.5:1 in the HIV era and to 1.2:1 in the HAART era.
  • Men were more likely to be diagnosed with early-stage disease, but they were less likely than women to receive radiation therapy.

  • Distant extrapelvic metastases appear in approximately in 10% of the patients with squamous cell anal cancer (SCAC) and survival depends on the treatment strategy.
  • We present a patient with SCAC in whom, according to PET/CT findings, the initial stage was changed from II (T2N0M0) to III A (T2N2M0).
  • Radiation therapy (RT) and chemotherapy achieved a good therapeutic response but early follow up revealed new paraaortic lymph node (LN) metastases, as well as an uncommon left supraclavicular LN metastasis from the same primary carcinoma.
  • The disease was restaged as stage IV (T2N2M1) and radiation therapy was substituted by chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Squamous-cell carcinoma of the anal canal: predictors of treatment outcome.
  • PURPOSE: The incidence of anal canal squamous-cell carcinoma is increasing.
  • METHODS: Using one database, we identified 131 Stages I-III patients treated for primary anal canal squamous-cell carcinoma at our institution from December 1986 to August 2006, with minimum six-month follow-up.
  • RESULTS: Of 131 patients (median age, 58.3 years; median follow-up, 2.9 (range, 0.6-11.2) years), 66 percent were females, 43.5 percent were Stage II, and 11 (8 percent) were HIV-positive.
  • Almost all patients undergoing radiotherapy (96.7 percent, 118/122) also had chemotherapy: 118 (100 percent, Stages I-III) had concurrent chemotherapy: (98 (83.8 percent) mitomycin/5-fluorouracil, 12 (10.2 percent) cisplatin/5-fluorouracil, 8 (6.8 percent) 5-fluorouracil alone); 35 of 46 (76 percent) Stage III patients received induction chemotherapy (34 (97.1 percent) cisplatin/5-fluorouracil, 1 (2.8 percent) 5-fluorouracil alone).
  • Many (44 percent Stages I/II, 48.9 percent Stage III) required dose adjustments.
  • Bivariate analyses demonstrated that T stage (P=0.0019), completion of radiotherapy, and total radiotherapy dose (P=0.03) were all significantly associated with treatment failure.
  • On multivariate analyses, disease stage (P=0.05) and completion of radiotherapy (P=0.01) remained significant predictors of relapse-free survival.

  • OBJECTIVE: Liver transplantation (LT) is the treatment of choice for end-stage liver disease.
  • Data on neoplasms of the colon, rectum and anus in LT are limited.
  • METHOD: A retrospective evaluation of the incidence and clinical course of colorectal and anal malignancies and colonic polyps in a series of 467 consecutive LTs in 402 individuals between 1998 and 2001 was performed.
  • RESULTS: During a median follow up of 5.2 years, three colon adenocarcinomas, one EBV associated cecal posttransplant lymphoproliferative tumour and two HPV associated anal tumours were identified.
  • No patient died from colorectal/anal malignancy.
  • Viral-associated malignancies, including post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders and anal cancer, are important entities in the LT population suggesting that complete screening of the colon, rectum and anus including pre-LT and post-LT colonoscopy should be utilized.

  • [Title] FDG-PET/CT imaging for staging and target volume delineation in conformal radiotherapy of anal carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: FDG-PET/CT imaging has an emerging role in staging and treatment planning of various tumor locations and a number of literature studies show that also the carcinoma of the anal canal may benefit from this diagnostic approach.
  • We analyzed the potential impact of FDG-PET/CT in stage definition and target volume delineation of patients affected by carcinoma of the anal canal and candidates for curative radiotherapy.
  • METHODS: Twenty seven patients with biopsy proven anal carcinoma were enrolled.
  • Pathology was squamous cell carcinoma in 20 cases, cloacogenic carcinoma in 3, adenocarcinoma in 2, and basal cell carcinoma in 2.
  • RESULTS: PET/CT fused images led to change the stage in 5/27 cases (18.5%): 3 cases from N0 to N2 and 2 from M0 to M1 leading to change the treatment intent from curative to palliative in a case.Based on PET/CT imaging, GTV and CTV contours changed in 15/27 (55.6%) and in 10/27 cases (37.0%) respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: FDG-PET/CT has a potential relevant impact in staging and target volume delineation of the carcinoma of the anal canal.
  • Clinical stage variation occurred in 18.5% of cases with change of treatment intent in 3.7%.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In theory, the concept of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy can be applied to cancer surgery for all solid cancers.
  • Yet sentinel lymph node biopsy has not become a standard part of gastrointestinal cancer surgery.
  • It has been of value in the assessment of small early-stage gastric cancers, but has only achieved widespread practice in Japan.
  • Studies of SLN biopsy in colon cancer have not shown it to be a reliable predictor of N+ status and therefore don't permit the omission of lymph node dissection in selected cases.
  • SLN biopsy may have prognostic usefulness by demonstrating micrometastases; careful serial sectioning focussed on the SLN may detect nests of metastatic cells on HE staining, thereby converting a tumor from Stage I (TxN0M0) to Stage II (TxN1M0).
  • For cancers of the anal canal, SLN biopsy of inguinal nodes has been tested as a means of establishing the indications for inguinal lymph node dissection.

  • [Title] Histological features of human papilloma virus 16 and its association with the development and progression of anal squamous cell carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: To investigate the development of anal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and the expression patterns of human papillomavirus (HPV).
  • The expression patterns of HPV in the cancer cell nuclei was investigated by in situ hybridization (ISH) using HPV probes.
  • RESULTS: Amplification of DMD genes was confirmed in 8 of 20 patients with anal SCC, suggesting that tumor DNA was preserved in these patients.
  • In two patients with carcinoma in situ (CIS), the cancer cells showed only a diffuse pattern (DP), and in two patients with invasive cancer, the cancer cell showed only an oligo-dot pattern (OP).
  • In one patient with lesions ranging from CIS to invasive cancer, the histologic features varied in each area, from DP to OP.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings show that HPV16 infection is closely involved in the development of anal SCC and suggest that the change in the genome occurs at the stage of microinvasive cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Perineal wound complications after abdominoperineal excision (APE) for anorectal cancer represent a considerable source of morbidity for patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Data from the controlled studies support the use of myocutaneous flaps for single-stage reconstruction after APE in the presence of chemoradiotherapy.
  • The implications of an expanding role for radiotherapy in the treatment of low rectal cancer and radical dissection to achieve negative circumferential margins, necessitate close co-operation between colorectal and reconstructive surgeons to achieve APE with reduced wound morbidity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Understanding the burden of human papillomavirus-associated anal cancers in the US.
  • BACKGROUND: Anal cancer is an uncommon malignancy in the US; up to 93% of anal cancers are associated with human papillomavirus.
  • METHODS: Cases diagnosed between 1998 and 2003 from 39 population-based cancer registries were analyzed.
  • The following anal cancer histologies were included in the analysis: squamous cell, adenocarcinoma, and small cell/neuroendocrine carcinomas.
  • RESULTS: From 1998 through 2003, the annual age-adjusted invasive anal cancer incidence rate was 1.5 per 100,000 persons.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) was the most common histology overall, accounting for 18,105 of 21,395 (84.6%) cases of anal cancer.
  • Incidence rates of anal SCC increased 2.6% per year on average.
  • The majority of SCC cases were diagnosed at the in situ or localized stage (58.1%).
  • API were more likely to be diagnosed with regional or distant stage disease than were other racial/ethnic groups (27.5% and 11.8%, respectively).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Rates of anal SCC varied by sex, race, and ethnicity.
  • A higher proportion of API were diagnosed at regional/distant stage.
  • Continued surveillance and additional research are needed to assess the potential impact of the HPV vaccine on the anal cancer burden in the US.

  • [Title] A twenty-year experience with adenocarcinoma of the anal canal.
  • PURPOSE: Adenocarcinoma of the anal canal is a rare malignancy with limited data regarding treatment and outcomes.
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate disease control and survival outcomes in patients with adenocarcinoma of the anal canal.
  • METHODS: A retrospective consecutive cohort study of all patients in whom adenocarcinoma of the anal canal was diagnosed between 1983 and 2004 was performed.
  • RESULTS: Thirty-four patients were identified; six underwent palliative treatment (Stage IV, n = 4; poor performance, n = 2).
  • CONCLUSION: Combined modality treatment with radical surgical resection improves survival among patients with adenocarcinoma of the anal canal, but a high risk for distant failure emphasizes the need for effective adjuvant therapeutic regimens.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Accuracy of endoanal ultrasound in the follow-up assessment for squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal treated with radiochemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Radiochemotherapy has largely replaced surgery in the treatment for squamous cell cancer of the anal canal.
  • Transanal ultrasonography is well documented as an important investigation method in the management of anal carcinoma.
  • METHODS: The study enrolled 16 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven squamous carcinoma of the anal canal between 2003 and 2006.
  • RESULTS: Nine patients had stage uT2 disease; none had uT3 disease; and seven had uT4 disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoanal ultrasound is a safe and effective method for evaluating and following anal cancer before and after treatment.
  • Experience and evaluation during the period of the ultrasonographic abnormalities could give a clear idea concerning the evolution of the anal tumors treated with radiochemotherapy.

  • [Title] HIV-specific differences in outcome of squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal: a multicentric cohort study of HIV-positive patients receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy.
  • PURPOSE: To define clinical outcome after definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) of anal carcinoma in HIV-infected patients treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).
  • Local disease control (LC), relapse-free survival (RFS), overall survival (OS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), toxicity, and prognostic factors were investigated.
  • RESULTS: HIV-positive patients were younger (mean age, 48 v 62 years; P < .0005), predominantly male (93% v 25%; P < .0005), and with early-stage (P = .06) and large-cell histology (90% v 67%; P = .005) disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Long-term LC and acute toxicity represent major clinical challenges in HIV-positive patients with anal carcinoma.

  • INTRODUCTION: Vulval carcinoma is uncommon, affecting approximately 2 per 100,000 women annually.
  • Advanced vulval carcinomas involve midline structures (such as clitoris, urethra, or anus) and/or adjacent pelvic organs or bone, and adequate excision may require urinary diversion, colostomy, or pelvic exenteration.
  • Less morbid and less mutilating therapeutic alternatives have been investigated, particularly chemoradiation, which has shown success in the management of anal carcinomas.
  • This is a retrospective study of the GSH's experience of the use of chemoradiation as primary therapy for women with advanced vulval carcinoma.
  • Other prognostic factors for survival were performance status and tumor stage.
  • Performance status, age, and tumor stage were also associated with survival.

  • Pelvic tumors usually metastasize first to regional lymph nodes, which are specific groups of nodes for each tumor, and are classified according to the TNM system as N-stage disease.
  • If a pelvic tumor spreads to a lymph node outside of the defined regional nodes, this is considered M-stage disease, which usually results in upstaging of the disease to overall stage IV cancer and may potentially affect the patient's treatment options.
  • In this review, the patterns of regional nodal spread and N-stage classification are presented for carcinomas of the anus, bladder, cervix, endometrium, ovary, penis, prostate, rectum, testis, vagina, and vulva.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Clinical outcome after treatment with a brachytherapy boost versus external beam boost for anal carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome after definitive whole pelvis external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) followed by brachytherapy (BT) boost after treatment break vs. external beam boost without break in the treatment of anal carcinoma.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Eighty-one consecutive patients with invasive anal carcinoma were analyzed retrospectively.
  • Concomitant chemotherapy (CT) with mitomycin C was applied during whole pelvis EBRT depending on tumor stage.
  • Pattern of care, local disease control (LC), cancer-specific survival (CSS), overall survival (OS), toxicity, and quality of life (QOL) were assessed.
  • In early stage tumors, (192)Ir-HDR BT boost with CT resulted in a 5-year LC and CSS of 100%.
  • In all patients, BT boost did not result in improved LC, OS, and CSS compared with EBRT boost, despite stage and treatment bias favoring small tumors to be treated with BT.
  • BT boost is most beneficial in early stage tumors but the advantage of BT seems to be limited due to its invasiveness, doctor dependence, and logistic circumstances.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Radiochemotherapy in the conservative treatment of anal canal carcinoma: retrospective analysis of results and radiation dose effectiveness.
  • PURPOSE: This retrospective analysis reports the results on patients with anal canal carcinoma treated by combined radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between March 1993 and December 2001, 43 patients with anal canal carcinoma were treated with radiochemotherapy at the Hospital do Cancer A.C. Camargo.
  • Stage distribution was as follows: I, 3 (7%); II, 23 (53.5%); IIIA, 8 (18.6%); and IIIB, 9 (21%).
  • Patient's age, tumor stage, overall treatment time, and RT dose at primary tumor were variables analyzed for survival and local control.
  • Overall survival according to clinical stage was as follows: I, 100%; II, 82%; IIIA, 73%; and IIIB, 18% (p = 0.0049).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This analysis suggests that the treatment scheme employed was effective for anal sphincter preservation and local control; however, the incidence of distant metastases was relatively high.
  • The clinical stage was the main prognostic factor for overall survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Anal carcinoma in mid-Norway 1970-2000.
  • The treatment of anal carcinoma changed from surgery to chemoradiotherapy 20-25 years ago.
  • The aim of this observational study was to compare surgery with chemoradiotherapy with regard to side effects, local recurrence and survival during and after the implementation of a new treatment policy for anal carcinoma.
  • The study includes all 111 patients with anal carcinoma diagnosed between 1970 and 2000 in mid-Norway.
  • Stage, age and treatment were all significant indicators of survival in uni- and multivariable analysis.
  • Late side effects were moderate after combined therapy; only one patient preferred getting a stoma due to radiation damage of the anal sphincter.
  • The change of strategy for anal cancer treatment from surgery to combined therapy has probably reduced local recurrence and improved survival.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Anal Disorders.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the cause of cervical cancer.
  • Integration of HPV-16 DNA in cervical cells is considered to be a key event in the progression towards invasive cancer, but little is known about this event in anal carcinogenesis.
  • The integration could be a useful biomarker for cancer progression.
  • The aim of this study was to develop a new multiplex real-time PCR assay based on simultaneous amplification of the E2 and E6 HPV open reading frames (ORFs) in order to assess the physical status (episomal and/or integrated) of HPV-16 in anal cells of HIV-positive men.
  • The multiplex real-time PCR was tested in 77 consecutive samples from individual HIV-infected patients with HPV-16 anal infection.
  • The integration occurs in the early stage of anal lesions and was associated with the severity of the lesions (p 0.004).
