  • [Title] Role of topical chemotherapy for primary acquired melanosis and malignant melanoma of the conjunctiva and cornea: review of the evidence and recommendations for treatment.
  • Surgical excision with cryotherapy is a well-established treatment option for malignant melanoma or primary acquired melanosis (PAM) with atypia of the conjunctiva and cornea.
  • Relevant studies were reviewed with regards to treatment regimen, rates of recurrence and metastasis, side effect profile and length of follow up.
  • A total of 22 and 16 unique cases of biopsy proven PAM with atypia and malignant melanoma, respectively, treated with topical MMC were identified.
  • Topical MMC was well tolerated and shows considerable promise, particularly in the treatment of diffuse PAM with atypia.

  • [Title] Topical mitomycin chemotherapy for conjunctival malignant melanoma and primary acquired melanosis with atypia: clinical experience with histopathologic observations.
  • OBJECTIVES: To clinically evaluate topical mitomycin chemotherapy in patients with diffuse, multifocal, or recurrent primary acquired melanosis with atypia and/or conjunctival malignant melanoma and to histopathologically study ocular tissue samples obtained before and after treatment.
  • METHODS: Chemotherapy with topical mitomycin, 0.04% 4 times daily, was administered for 28 days as the primary and only treatment in 7 patients (after biopsy) and for 7 days as adjuvant therapy to excision and cryotherapy in 5 patients.
  • Five patients developed subconjunctival recurrences, for which 2 underwent orbital exenteration and 3 were treated conservatively.
  • Histopathologic specimens of conjunctival, adnexal, and ocular tissues obtained before and after chemotherapy were evaluated.
  • RESULTS: Regression of tumor was observed in 11 patients with primary or adjuvant topical mitomycin chemotherapy.
  • One patient with nodular melanoma was resistant to mitomycin chemotherapy.
  • Two patients with primary treatment and 2 with adjuvant treatment developed subconjunctival recurrence.
  • In patients with recurrent malignant melanoma, the deeper layers of the lamina propria were involved, with sparing of the epithelium and superficial lamina propria.
  • Transient keratoconjunctivitis was observed in all patients during treatment.
  • In evaluation of the exenteration specimens, corneal, scleral, episcleral, retinal, and anterior structures were within normal limits.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Topical mitomycin chemotherapy was found to induce regression of conjunctival melanoma and primary acquired melanosis with atypia.
  • When mitomycin chemotherapy was used as an adjuvant to excision and cryotherapy, 2 (40%) of 5 patients experienced tumor recurrence at a mean of 4.3 years' follow-up.
  • Our histopathologic findings demonstrated a long-term mitomycin chemotherapy-related effect on the conjunctiva.
  • The pattern of effect and location of recurrent disease suggest that this regimen of topical mitomycin chemotherapy was most effective for superficial tumors.
  • Although subconjunctival or orbital recurrences were noted, topical mitomycin chemotherapy warrants further investigation as an alternative treatment for primary acquired melanosis with atypia and conjunctival malignant melanoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We show here that FTY720 has antiangiogenic activity, potently abrogating VEGF- and S1P-induced angiogenesis in vivo in growth factor implant and corneal models.
  • FTY720 administration tended to inhibit primary and significantly inhibited metastatic tumor growth in a mouse model of melanoma growth.
  • These data show that functional antagonism of vascular S1P receptors by FTY720 potently inhibits angiogenesis; therefore, this may provide a novel therapeutic approach for pathologic conditions with dysregulated angiogenesis.

  • [Title] Topical mitomycin C chemotherapy in the management of ocular surface neoplasia: a 10-year review of treatment outcomes and complications.
  • The aim of this study is to determine outcomes and complications following such treatment.
  • METHODS: This study is a retrospective review of patients treated with topical MMC for ocular surface neoplasia, including primary acquired melanosis (PAM), melanoma, corneal-conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia (CCIN), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and sebaceous gland carcinoma (SGC).
  • 21 received MMC as primary therapy and 37 as surgical adjuvant.
  • The regimen was 0.04% MMC four times a day for 3 weeks on, 3 weeks off, 3 weeks on, with topical steroid and lubricants throughout.
  • Overall, 26% developed recurrent disease at a mean of 13 months post treatment.
  • Recurrence rates by pathology were 20% PAM, 25% melanoma, 0% CCIN, 67% SCC and 57% SGC.
  • Short-term complications occurred in 52%, but only 7% required treatment cessation.
  • Long-term complications such as persisting keratoconjunctivitis, epiphora and corneal problems, occurred in 31%.
  • CONCLUSION: The results confirm the effectiveness of topical MMC chemotherapy in the management of ocular surface neoplasia.
  • Self-limiting short-term complications were common; however, limbal stem cell deficiency appears to be a significant long-term complication of treatment, occurring in 12%.

  • The drug is a bioreductive alkylating agent that undergoes metabolic reductive activation, and has various oxygen tension-dependent cytotoxic effects on cells, including the cross-linking of DNA.
  • It is widely used systemically for the treatment of malignancies, and has gained popularity as topical adjunctive therapy in ocular and adnexal surgery over the past 2 decades.
  • Hence, it has been used as adjunctive therapy in various ocular surgeries, such as glaucoma filtering surgeries, dacryocystorhinostomy, corneal refractive surgery and surgeries for ocular cicatrisation.
  • In addition, it has been used as an adjunct in the surgical management of pterygia, ocular surface squamous neoplasia, primary acquired melanosis with atypia and conjunctival melanoma.

  • [Title] [Management of corneo-conjunctival malignant melanoma with "no touch technique" surgical excision and corneoscleral lamellar keratoplasty].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the management of "no touch technique" surgical excision and corneoscleral lamellar keratoplasty in the treatment of corneo-conjunctival malignant melanoma.
  • METHODS: Surgical excision for corneo-conjunctival malignant melanoma in six cases, from October 1989 to January 2004 in Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, were performed.
  • The incision was outlined 4-6 mm outside the pigmented conjunctival mass, and 2 mm outside the corneal component.
  • All cases were subsequently treated with 0.01% thiotepa eyedrops and supplemental dacarbazine chemotherapy.
  • At the average 43.5 months follow-up time (14.6 years to 6 months), no evidences of local recurrence of malignant melanoma or distant metastasis were observed.
  • CONCLUSION: The clinical study suggests that using surgical excision of "no touch technique" to remove tumor in whole piece with corneoscleral lamellar keratoplasty is effective in the treatment of corneo-conjunctival malignant melanoma.

  • [Title] Management of conjunctival and corneal melanoma with surgical excision, amniotic membrane allograft, and topical chemotherapy.
  • PURPOSE: To illustrate a novel method of management for extensive conjunctival and corneal melanoma.
  • A 40-year-old Caucasian woman presented with a large, diffuse conjunctival melanoma involving 6 clock hours of the limbus.
  • The remaining bulbar conjunctiva and the entire corneal epithelium were affected by diffuse, flat melanosis.
  • RESULTS: The conjunctival melanoma was completely resected microsurgically in one piece without disrupting the tumor.
  • The corneal melanosis was subsequently treated with topical mitomycin C eyedrops.
  • At 8 months follow-up, the conjunctiva and the cornea were completely healed with resolution of all pigment and 20/20 visual acuity.
  • CONCLUSION: Preliminary evidence suggests that combined therapeutic approaches, consisting of extensive tumor removal, cryotherapy, amniotic membrane allograft, and topical mitomyin C, can be effective in the management of diffuse conjunctival and corneal melanoma arising from primary acquired melanosis.

  • [Title] Topical mitomycin chemotherapy for conjunctival malignant melanoma and primary acquired melanosis with atypia: 12 years' experience.
  • PURPOSE: To report 12-year follow-up experience with topical mitomycin chemotherapy for diffuse and multifocal primary acquired melanosis (PAM) with atypia and conjunctival melanoma.
  • Mitomycin was a primary treatment for residual epithelial disease in ten patients (eight with PAM with atypia and two with conjunctival melanoma) and as an adjuvant to excision and cryotherapy in six with conjunctival malignant melanoma.
  • Primary treatments consisted of mitomycin 0.04% qid for 28 days (two 14-day cycles) and for 7 consecutive days as adjuvant therapy.
  • RESULTS: Sixteen patients were followed for a mean 81 months (range 13-144 months) after treatment.
  • All tumors responded to chemotherapy.
  • Recurrence was noted in eight (three adjuvant and five primary treatment patients).
  • The mean time to recurrence was 36.9 months.
  • The short-term mitomycin-related complications included transient keratoconjunctivitis (n=14), severe keratoconjunctivitis (n=1) and one corneal abrasion with scar formation.
  • The long-term complications included pannus (n=2) and corneal haze (n=1).
  • Three patients died, one of metastatic conjunctival melanoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Conjunctival melanoma and PAM responded to mitomycin 0.04% topical chemotherapy; subepithelial nests appeared resistant to treatment.
  • Treatment-related complications were acceptable.
  • In this series, as primary and adjuvant therapy, topical mitomycin yielded an overall recurrence rate of 50%.

  • [Title] [Case of corneally displaced malignant conjunctival melanoma].
  • BACKGROUND: We studied the clinicopathologic characteristics in a patient with malignant conjunctival melanoma associated with corneal invasion.
  • He developed recurrence and was referred to us.
  • Biomicroscopic examination revealed that there was a granular pigment lesion in the cornea.
  • The patient was diagnosed as having conjunctival melanoma with corneal invasion and treated with orbital exenteration and chemotherapy in our hospital.
  • Clinicopathologic tests revealed malignant melanoma cells invading through the bulbar conjunctiva and into the cornea.
  • Ultrastructural study by electron microscopy of the pigmented tumor cells in the cornea showed several lobations of the nuclei, a large active-appearing nucleolus, and an aberrant granular melanosomal morphology.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The infiltration of palpebral malignant conjunctival melanoma was limited to the epidermis of the cornea.

  • [Title] Long-term follow-up of patients with conjunctival melanoma.
  • Data from long-term follow-up examinations of patients with conjunctival melanoma are limited.
  • Therapeutic procedures were local excision, local excision followed by brachytherapy, local excision combined with cryotherapy, and local excision followed by either irradiation or cryotherapy and adjuvant mitomycin C (MMC) application.
  • Clinical parameters of the patients and the tumors were obtained and analyzed for their relation to tumor recurrence and death from metastatic melanoma using the multivariate Cox hazards modeling.
  • Patient age greater than 55 years, higher TNM category, and unfavorable tumor location (palpebral conjunctiva, fornix, caruncle, corneal stroma, eyelid) were identified as prognostic factors for death from metastatic melanoma.
  • Tumors with unfavorable location, higher TNM grade, and excision alone as initial therapy showed a higher cumulative probability of local relapse than favorably located (bulbar and limbal conjunctiva) tumors, lower TNM grade, and excision plus adjuvant therapy.
  • To minimize local recurrence rate surgical excision should be combined with an adjunctive procedure such as irradiation, cryotherapy, or local chemotherapy with MMC.

  • [Title] Complications of mitomycin C therapy in 100 eyes with ocular surface neoplasia.
  • AIM: To determine the complications associated with mitomycin C (MMC) in the treatment of ocular surface neoplasia.
  • Outcome measures included complications of MMC and the treatment required for these complications.
  • RESULTS: One to three 7 day cycles of topical MMC 0.04% four times a day were given to 59 eyes with localised corneal-conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), 19 eyes with diffuse CIN, six eyes with recurrent CIN, one eye with ocular surface squamous cell carcinoma, three eyes with primary acquired melanosis (PAM) with atypia, nine eyes with conjunctival malignant melanoma (MM), two eyes with sebaceous carcinoma with pagetoid spread, and one eye with recurrent atypical fibroxanthoma.
  • 31 (34%) cases developed an allergic reaction to MMC and 14 (14%) eyes had epiphora secondary to punctal stenosis at a mean follow up period of 26.5 months.
  • CONCLUSION: In the largest study looking at complications of topical MMC in the treatment of ocular surface neoplasia, allergic reaction and punctal stenosis are relatively common.
