  • Neoplasms resembling ovarian common epithelial-type tumors, including clear cell adenocarcinomas, rarely occur in the lower urinary tract of men.
  • When they do, they develop in the urethra or urinary bladder.
  • The clinical as well as the pathologic features are consistent with a clear cell adenocarcinoma as seen in the female genital tract rather than a typical prostatic adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The trial comprised two treatment arms, i.e. patients were randomized to orchidectomy alone or orchidectomy plus lycopene (OL), each of 27 patients.
  • RESULTS: At 6 months there was a significant reduction in PSA level in both treatments, but more marked in the OL group (mean 9.1 and 26.4 ng/mL, P = 0.9).
  • CONCLUSION: Adding lycopene to orchidectomy produced a more reliable and consistent decrease in serum PSA level; it not only shrinks the primary tumour but also diminishes the secondary tumours, providing better relief from bone pain and lower urinary tract symptoms, and improving survival compared with orchidectomy alone.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Initial radiologic evaluation usually includes the excretory urography (intravenous pyelography), although further evaluation of the renal parenchyma with ultrasound or computed tomography scanning has been advocated by some.
  • It is important to identify those tumors at risk for recurrence or progression so that adjuvant intravesical therapies can be instituted.
  • Most are given intravesically on a weekly basis, although many studies suggest that a single instillation immediately after transurethral resection may be as good as a longer course of therapy.
  • Although all of these drugs have toxicity, they usually are well tolerated.
  • Intravesical bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is an immunotherapeutic agent that when given intravesically is very effective in the treatment of superficial transitional cell carcinoma.
  • Compared with controls, BCG has a 43% advantage in preventing tumor recurrence, a significantly better rate than the 16% to 21% advantage of intravesical chemotherapy.
  • In addition, BCG is particularly effective in the treatment of carcinoma in situ, eradicating it in more than 80% of cases.
  • In contrast to intravesical chemotherapy, BCG has also been shown to decrease the risk of tumor progression.
  • Unfortunately, adverse effects associated with this prolonged therapy may limit its widespread applicability.
  • In those patients at high risk in whom BCG therapy fails, intravesical interferon-alpha with or without BCG may be beneficial in some.
  • Photodynamic therapy has also been used but is limited by its toxicity.
  • In patients who progress or do not respond to intravesical therapies, cystectomy should be considered.
  • With the development of orthotopic lower urinary tract reconstruction to the native urethra, the quality of life impact of radical cystectomy has been lessened.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Treatment of hormone-refractory prostate cancer is palliative, and surgery and radiotherapy are used for the relief of lower urinary tract symptoms and localized painful bony metastases.
  • Systemic treatments are not widely accepted in this setting, but clinical trials have demonstrated the potential for bone targeting agents such as strontium-89 and the bisphosphonates to palliate painful bone metastases and to delay progression in certain settings.
  • Chemotherapy with mitozantrone in combination with steroids has previously been shown to have palliative benefits and to delay progression.
  • The additional costs incurred by the use of chemotherapy or bone-targeting therapies may be offset by gains in overall care with fewer in-patient admissions compared with steroid monotherapy.
  • Future studies investigating the timing of chemotherapy, combinations with existing treatments or other novel therapies are underway.

  • [Transliterated title] Transarterielle Chemoperfusion des Beckens--Ergebnisse bei symptomatischen Rezidivtumoren und Lymphknotenmetastasen.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate local transarterial chemoperfusion (TACP) of therapy-resistant, locally recurrent malignant tumors and lymph node metastases in the pelvis with respect to clinical response, tumor response and survival.
  • In the case of clinical and radiological progression, therapy was stopped and the patient was referred to the hospital's tumor board.
  • In the case of radiological response and clinical progression or clinical response and radiological progression, therapy was continued.
  • Therapy could be stopped by the patient at any time.
  • RESULTS: Treatment was tolerated well by all patients.
  • Tumor-related pain, bleeding, restricted mobility of the lower extremities, incontinence, urinary tract obstruction, and constipation were reduced in 9/17, 5/6, 3/3, 1/3, 2/5, and 1/3 of cases (clinical response rate: 54%).
  • CONCLUSION: Since tumor-related complaints were improved in 54% of the cases and control of tumor growth (PR+SD) was achieved in 67% of the cases, TACP for recurrent pelvic malignancies should be considered as a palliative oncological treatment option.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gemcitabine plus cisplatin for advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary tract: a phase II multicenter trial.
  • PURPOSE: We determined the activity and toxicity of gemcitabine plus cisplatin in patients with inoperable or metastatic transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary tract.
  • Previous adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapy for locally advanced disease was acceptable if it had been completed more than 1 year before study entry.
  • Notably only 7 of the 54 patients (13%) previously received chemotherapy in an adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting.
  • Median time to progression was 23 weeks and median survival was 54 weeks.
  • Treatment was well tolerated.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Combined cisplatin plus gemcitabine is highly active in advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary tract with manageable toxicity.
  • The response rate, time to treatment failure and overall survival appeared to be comparable to those achieved with combined methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin and cisplatin.
  • Conversely toxicity appeared lower.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: We reported previously that angiogenesis evaluated by intratumor microvessel density (MVD), expression of such angiogenic factors as vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and the matrix metalloproteinase-9:E-cadherin ratio (M:E ratio) could identify patients with advanced transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder for whom chemotherapy and cystectomy will be unsuccessful.
  • In the present study, we evaluated the significance of the M:E ratio as a predictor for prognosis for patients with TCC in the upper urinary tract (TCC-UUT).
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We evaluated MVD by immunohistochemistry and the expression of angiogenic and metastasis-related factors by in situ hybridization in 55 nephroureterectomy specimens from patients who received no neoadjuvant therapy.
  • The expression level of matrix metalloproteinase type 9 (MMP-9) and type 2 (MMP-2) and the M:E ratio correlated with MVD.
  • Moreover, lower expression levels of E-cadherin were associated with fewer recurrences in the urinary bladder.
  • CONCLUSION: We suggest that the M:E ratio and E-cadherin expression may be targets for novel therapeutic strategies.

  • [Title] Lymphovascular invasion independently predicts increased disease specific survival in patients with transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.
  • PURPOSE: We investigated the prognostic impact of lymphovascular invasion (LVI) and traditional prognostic factors for survival in a large series of patients treated surgically for upper tract transitional cell carcinoma (TCC).
  • We also developed a prognostic factors-based model for risk stratification of upper tract TCC.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We identified a study population of 173 consecutive patients treated surgically for upper tract TCC at our institution between 1980 and 2002.
  • Using this equation the patients were stratified into low risk (grade 1 or 2, LVI negative, stage pT2 or lower), high risk (any tumor grade, LVI positive, stage pT3 or greater) and intermediate risk (all others) groups with significant differences in survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In addition to pathological stage and tumor grade, LVI is an independent prognostic factor for disease specific survival in upper tract TCC.
  • Patients in the high and/or intermediate risk groups may benefit from integrated therapies with surgery and postoperative systemic chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Myeloid sarcoma of the urinary bladder and epididymis as a primary manifestation of acute myeloid leukemia with inv(16).
  • Myeloid sarcoma (MS) of the lower urinary tract is rare.
  • The neoplasm was composed predominantly of blasts that expressed CD68, CD117, myeloperoxidase, and lysozyme, with occasional immature eosinophils.
  • Although blood and bone marrow examinations showed no morphologic evidence of leukemia, conventional cytogenetic studies of marrow demonstrated inv(16)(p13q22) in 4 of 20 metaphases; fluorescence in situ hybridization of the bladder neoplasm also showed inv(16).
  • Following chemotherapy, the patient has been in complete remission for 32 months.
  • In our literature review, we identified 7 cases of MS involving bladder, only 3 without evidence of an associated myeloid neoplasm in marrow, none with cytogenetic data.
  • Cytogenetic analysis is useful for both demonstrating minimal marrow disease and classifying MS in paraffin-embedded tissue sections.

  • [Title] Adjuvant systemic chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of adjuvant systemic chemotherapy in conjunction with surgery in patients with invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.
  • Of these 43 patients, 32 were scheduled to receive more than four courses of cisplatin-based chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: Recurrence was observed in 12 patients (37.5%) who underwent chemotherapy and 7 (63.6%) who did not (P = 0.170).
  • The disease-free survival was lower in the nonchemotherapy group than in the chemotherapy group (P = 0.0439).
  • During the follow-up period, 9 patients (28.1%) in the chemotherapy group died and 9 patients (81.8%) in the nonchemotherapy group died (P = 0.004).
  • Multivariate Cox proportional hazard model analysis revealed that the use of adjuvant chemotherapy (P = 0.006, relative risk = 9.19) and node-positive status (P = 0.008, relative risk = 8.28) were strongly associated with overall survival.
  • In the chemotherapy group, 24 (75%) had side effects due to the treatment; however, fever and gastrointestinal symptoms were the chief adverse effects and were well tolerated.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results have indicated that adjuvant systemic chemotherapy may provide therapeutic benefit in patients with invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.

  • [Title] Gleason grade remains an important prognostic predictor in men diagnosed with prostate cancer while on finasteride therapy.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate men treated with finasteride for lower urinary tract symptoms, who subsequently were diagnosed with prostate cancer and had a radical prostatectomy (RP) at our institution, to determine if finasteride therapy prevented accurate Gleason grade assignment and prediction of biochemical recurrence.
  • Serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level, duration of finasteride therapy, biopsy Gleason grade, clinical stage, RP Gleason grade and pathological stage were reviewed.
  • RESULTS The mean duration of finasteride therapy before diagnosis was 23.6 months, the mean serum PSA (doubled to account for finasteride use) 11.02 ng/mL and mean biopsy Gleason score 6.

  • [Title] Should patients with primary upper urinary tract cancer receive prophylactic intravesical chemotherapy after nephroureterectomy?
  • PURPOSE: We assessed the efficacy of prophylactic intravesical chemotherapy for primary upper urinary tract urothelial cancer after nephroureterectomy during long-term followup.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 1985 to June 2007, 196 patients with primary upper urinary tract urothelial cancer were included in this study.
  • We compared the bladder tumor recurrence rate, number of recurrence episodes, time to first bladder tumor recurrence, tumor type, percent of patients with cystectomy and percent who died of urothelial cancer, and the recurrence-free survival rate.
  • There were no significant differences in recurrence type, mean number of bladder tumor recurrences, percent of patients with cystectomy and the cancer specific survival rate.
  • The bladder recurrence rate was lower in group 1 and 2 than in group 3.
  • Mean time to first bladder tumor recurrence was longer in groups 1 and 2.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intravesical instillation of epirubicin or mitomycin C appears to be well tolerated and effective for preventing bladder recurrence and prolonging time to first bladder recurrence.
  • Patients should receive prophylactic intravesical chemotherapy after nephroureterectomy.

  • Primary locally aggressive colonic and rectal cancers include tumors that are staged T4N1-2Mx on diagnosis, and are often associated with a lower prognosis than earlier cancers.
  • Radical nuanced surgery is the base of treatment of the locally aggressive colon-rectal cancer.
  • The studies have shown that in certain localizations of the colon-rectal cancer, the locally aggressive forms can be better controlled by using multimodal therapy, including radiotherapy, either external or guided intraoperatory radiotherapy and chemotherapy with much better results.

  • Besides the presence of known intravesical tumors or undefined renal lesions on the initial PET scan, the inclusion criterion was the appearance of indeterminate or equivocal (18)F-FDG foci that extended along the course of the urinary tract and could not confidently be separated from urinary activity.
  • RESULTS: Forced diuresis coupled with parenteral hydration eliminated any significant (18)F-FDG activity from the lower urinary tract in 31 (97%) of 32 patients after the bladder had been voided 3 successive times.
  • CONCLUSION: Furosemide challenge has the potential to noninvasively resolve the inherent (18)F-FDG contrast handicap in the lower urinary tract.

  • [Title] Delayed rectal and urinary symptomatology in patients treated for prostate cancer by radiotherapy with or without short term neo-adjuvant androgen deprivation.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To identify contributing factors to delayed rectal and urinary symptoms in a randomised trial comparing different durations of maximal androgen deprivation (MAD), given prior to radiotherapy, for locally advanced prostate cancer.
  • Their delayed normal tissue effects were recorded by their treating doctors using standardised scales and by the patients using a self-assessment questionnaire regularly.
  • Time to occurrence and prevalence data were analysed.
  • RESULTS: Rectal and urinary symptom levels were observed to vary markedly over time in at least 80% of patients, with some indicating lasting resolution of symptoms.
  • Prevalence rates were found to be substantially lower than actuarial probability rates.
  • Obstructive lower urinary tract symptoms were noted to improve during the first 4 years after radiotherapy in approximately 60% of cases in each treatment arm.
  • However, the treatment arm itself was not shown to influence these improvements in other univariate or multivariate analyses.
  • MAD was shown to reduce both time to occurrence and prevalence of delayed proctopathic symptoms, but this effect was confirmed statistically in the 3 month treatment arm only.
  • Multivariate models indicated that higher levels of haemoglobin prior to any treatment may in some way protect against delayed proctopathic symptoms.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence data provide more clinically meaningful estimates of risk of delayed effects in normal tissues where assessment relies substantially on reported symptom levels.
  • In these tissues consideration of the impact of baseline symptom levels and pathologies, and greatest acute symptom levels in analyses of delayed effects appears mandatory.
  • Obstructive lower urinary symptoms improve over several years in the majority of patients treated for locally advanced prostate cancer by radiotherapy.

  • BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in the first two decades of life.
  • The embryonal subtype was the most frequent (73%) and the head and neck was the most common site of disease, followed by the genito-urinary tract and limbs.
  • Chemotherapy was used in all patients; 44% also had a radical surgery and 23% radiation therapy.
  • The event-free survival (EFS) at 10 years was 39% with relapse as the first cause of treatment failure.
  • The rate of treatment abandonment was 37%.
  • However, EFS is lower than that reported elsewhere due to occasional lack of availability of drugs, inadequate local control, and abandonment.
