  • [Title] Interleukin-2 for the treatment of solid tumors other than melanoma and renal cell carcinoma.
  • It has been used to stimulate the immune system for the treatment of multiples tumors.
  • This article is intended to review the reports published from 1990 to 2004 on the IL-2 treatment of tumors other than melanoma and renal carcinoma.
  • A selection was made over 150 publications reporting on administration of IL-2 in multiple tumors: lung carcinoma (small cell and non-small cell), colorectal, gastric, pancreatic, ovarian and breast cancer, sarcomas, hepatocarcinoma, mesothelioma, and brain, urological, and head and neck tumors.
  • IL-2 was mainly used in metastatic disease, associated with other immunotherapy or chemotherapy schedules.
  • We conclude that adjuvant IL-2 may be of value in early stages combined with standard treatment for colon and pancreas cancers.
  • Assessment of the efficacy of IL-2 combined with chemotherapy as treatment for advanced stages is complex, due to the lack of a control, and the variety of dosages and schemes.
  • The activity of IL-2 in monotherapy or in association with immunotherapy is clinically relevant in hepatocarcinoma, mesothelioma and in malignant overflows as palliative treatment.

  • [Title] The evolution of cancer research and drug discovery at Lilly Research Laboratories.
  • This review highlights the discovery and development of chemotherapy at Eli Lilly & Company over the past 30 years from the Vinca alkaloids-vincristine, vinblastine, and vindesine-to targeted therapy.
  • Two such agents, gemcitabine and pemetrexed, underwent clinical development and are now among Lilly's portfolio of approved anticancer drugs.
  • Gemcitabine, a pyrimidine nucleoside that has a profound effect on DNA synthesis, has been approved for the treatment of pancreatic, non-small cell lung, bladder, and most recently, breast, and ovarian cancer.
  • Pemetrexed, given in combination with cisplatin, has been recently approved for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma and as second-line treatment for non-small cell lung cancer.
  • Spurred by advances in the understanding of cancer as a disease process, Lilly's anticancer drug program began to transition to a more "targeted" approach during the 1990s.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Malignant gonadal mesothelioma.
  • Malignant mesothelioma of the gonads is a rare and highly lethal disease.
  • However, intratesticular and ovarian mesotheliomas have also been described.
  • Occasionally, patients with localized disease at the time of detection have been known to survive for more than 10 years; however, the majority will not live beyond 5 years, with median survival being approximately 23 months.
  • The principle reasons for this are difficulty in making a preoperative diagnosis and advanced stage at the time of treatment.
  • Adjuvant therapy in the form of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiotherapy has negligible benefit.
  • For advanced or recurrent disease, we suggest local radical resection with chemotherapy, including high-dose cisplatin and doxorubicin for two cycles of 5 days each; add local radiotherapy for uncontrolled locally advanced disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Recent clinical trials using cisplatin, carboplatin and their combination chemotherapy drugs (review).
  • Cisplatin continues to play a central role in cancer chemotherapy in spite of its toxicity.
  • It is used as first-line chemotherapy against epithelial malignancies of lung, ovarian, bladder, testicular, head and neck, esophageal, gastric, colon and pancreatic but also as second- and third-line treatment against a number of metastatic malignancies including cancers of the breast, melanoma, prostate, mesothelioma, leiomyosarcomas, malignant gliomas and others.
  • Cisplatin has become the gold standard treatment against cervical cancer in combination with radiotherapy.
  • This review summarizes the state of the art on clinical trials published mainly in 2002 using cisplatin and carboplatin in their combinations with other anticancer drugs.
  • For most advanced cancers the response rate to chemotherapy is about 50% in first-line treatments and about 15% in second- or third-line treatments; for example response rates of 25-50% have been observed for chemonaive patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated with cisplatin or carboplatin in combination with gemcitabine or taxanes and in exceptional cases these rates are up to 80% with addition of radiotherapy.
  • Response rates are very discouraging in second- or third-line chemotherapy treatments (7-25%).
  • Despite an increase in response rate from the use of modern-day chemotherapy drugs, no major difference in long-term survival has been achieved.
  • It is a high priority to invent novel approaches for cancer treatment.
  • It is hoped that a fraction of the numerous experimental drugs will show virtues in the anticancer arena especially combined with existing treatment regimens.
  • A preferential tumor targeting of chemotherapy treatments would bring a revolution in molecular medicine and would greatly advance cancer therapy in the upcoming years.

  • [Title] Gene-modified PA1-STK cells home to tumor sites in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma.
  • BACKGROUND: Malignant mesothelioma is an uncommon but lethal cancer of increasing incidence, particularly among patients with a history of exposure to asbestos.
  • Although numerous treatments have been employed, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgical resection, and combinations of the above, no satisfactory treatment yet exists, and affected patients will die of this disease, usually within 12 months.
  • Gene-based therapies constitute a new approach that offers hope of improved control of these tumors while being associated with less morbidity than conventional chemotherapeutic or surgical regimens.
  • We demonstrated that PA1-STK cells home in vivo to mesothelioma deposits, a phenomenon that is required for optimal exertion of this therapeutic concept.
  • METHODS: Gene-modified ovarian cancer cells expressing the thymidine-kinase gene (PA1-STK) were radiolabeled with 99Tc and infused into the pleural space of 4 patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma, then scanned to determine distribution of the cells.
  • RESULTS: PA1-STK cells recognized and adhered preferentially to mesothelioma lining the chest wall.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cell-based "suicide gene" therapy utilizing the "bystander effect" with the gene-modified ovarian cancer cell line PA1-STK is feasible in human pleural mesothelioma.
  • We have shown that this trafficking and homing of the therapeutic cells to the intrapleural tumor sites, a requirement for success with this novel therapeutic concept, is also valid in humans.

  • [Title] Cytoreductive surgery plus hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy improves survival in selected patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from abdominal and pelvic malignancies: results of 21 cases.
  • We evaluated the perioperative safety profile and efficacy of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) plus hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) in 21 patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) from gastrointestinal and gynecological cancers.
  • Twenty-one patients with PC (12 gastric cancer, 5 colorectal cancer, 2 ovarian cancer, 1 pseudomyxoma peritonei, 1 malignant mesothelioma) were treated with CRS + HIPEC with hydroxycamptothecin 20 mg and mitomycin C 30 mg in 12,000 mL of normal saline at 43 +/- .5 degrees C for 60 to 90 minutes.
  • We analyzed the following: local and systemic infections; gastrointestinal function recovery; hematological, hepatic, and renal parameters; wound healing time; adverse events; survival; and quality of life.
  • Two patients developed generalized edema and were successfully treated.
  • Five patients developed hypoproteinemia on day 1 after surgery.
  • Time of gastric tube removal was 2 to 7 days.
  • Liquid food intake time was 3 to 8 days.
  • Time of removal of stitches was 8 to 18 days.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Peritoneal mesothelioma.
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma is usually a rapidly fatal primary peritoneal surface malignancy with a median survival time of less than 1 year, mainly because of lack of effective treatment.
  • Treatment options with intravenous chemotherapy are far from satisfactory.
  • However, because malignant peritoneal mesothelioma usually remains confined to the peritoneal cavity for most of its natural history, regional chemotherapy is an attractive option.
  • From a theoretic perspective, the treatments are most likely to succeed in selected patients with small-volume residual disease after cytoreductive surgery.
  • Advantages of intraperitoneal chemotherapy include greatly enhanced drug concentrations in the peritoneal cavity and decreased systemic toxicity.
  • In designing an intraperitoneal treatment strategy for the management of peritoneal mesothelioma, the limited number of active cytotoxic drugs and the timing of drug delivery pose problems.
  • Prognosis as determined by clinical presentation, the completeness of cytoreduction, and gender (female patients survive longer than male patients) appears to be improved by the use of intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
  • Over the past decade, the management of these patients has evolved similarly to ovarian cancer treatment and now involves cytoreductive surgery, heated intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy with cisplatin and doxorubicin, and early postoperative intraperitoneal paclitaxel.
  • These perioperative treatments are followed by adjuvant intraperitoneal paclitaxel and second-look cytoreduction.
  • This multimodality treatment approach with debulking surgery and intraperitoneal chemotherapy has resulted in a median survival of 50 to 60 months.
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma is an orphan disease that is treatable, with expectations for "potential" cure in a small number of patients diagnosed and treated early with definitive local/regional treatments.

  • Tumor cells in effusions most frequently originate from primary carcinomas of the ovary, breast, and lung, and from malignant mesothelioma, a native tumor of this anatomic site.
  • Unlike the majority of solid tumors, particularly at the primary site, cancer cells in effusions are not amenable to surgical removal and failure in their eradication is one of the main causes of treatment failure.
  • In recent years, we have studied the biological characteristics of ovarian carcinoma, breast carcinoma, and malignant mesothelioma cells in effusions and compared it to their counterparts in primary tumors and solid metastases.
  • In ovarian carcinoma, several of these molecules are differentially expressed in primary diagnosis (prechemotherapy) and disease recurrence (postchemotherapy) specimens, reflecting the effect of disease progression and chemotherapy, and have different prognostic significance as function of disease progression.
  • The findings presented in this review underscore the need to take into consideration the unique biology of cancer cells in effusions if patient-tailored molecular therapy is to become a successful treatment modality in these malignancies.

  • [Title] Safety of gastric resections during cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy for peritoneal carcinomatosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) including gastric resection combined with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) can improve the prognosis of selected patients with peritoneal surface malignancies.
  • Perioperative morbidity of this aggressive treatment strategy is high; however, overall mortality can be low in specialized centers.
  • RESULTS: Of all patients included, 16 had pseudomyxoma peritonei, 11 gastric carcinoma, 4 ovarian carcinoma, 3 malignant peritoneal mesothelioma, and 3 colon carcinoma.
  • Twenty-seven patients had previous surgery (n = 22) and/or systemic chemotherapy (n = 18).
  • Fifteen total gastrectomies, 3 subtotal gastrectomies, 12 distal gastrectomies, and 7 gastric wedge resections were performed during CRS.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy for palliation of debilitating malignant ascites.
  • AIM: To report the use of laparoscopic Intraperitoneal Hyperthermic Chemotherapy (LIPHC) in the treatment of malignant ascites.
  • Ascites was from gastric cancer (5 cases), colorectal cancer (3 cases), ovarian cancer (3 cases), breast cancer (2 cases) and peritoneal mesothelioma (1 case).
  • Chemotherapy was cisplatin and doxorubicin or mitomycin depending on the type of primary tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This method resulted in benefit for those peritoneal carcinomatosis patients with debilitating malignant ascites who were excluded from cytoreductive surgery.
  • Proficiency in laparoscopic staging procedures and experience in the management of carcinomatosis and intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy (IPHC) are required for the success of the procedure.

  • [Title] Treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis from ovarian cancer. Present, future directions and proposals.
  • Peritoneal carcinomatosis, considered years ago as a final stage of unresectable cancer, can now be managed with curative intention by means of a radical cytoreductive surgical procedure with associated peritonectomy and intraperitoneal chemotherapy, as described by Sugarbaker.
  • Malignant neoplasms such as mesothelioma and pseudomyxoma peritonei, ovarian and colon cancer nowadays are experiencing some new therapeutical approaches.
  • Higher survival rates can be reached in ovarian cancer, which is commonly diagnosed in the presence of peritoneal carcinomatosis, using an optimal cytoreductive radical surgery with intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
  • An actualised review of the treatment of advanced ovarian cancer and a proposal of a national multicentre protocol for the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis from ovarian cancer has been performed by a group of Spanish surgeons and oncologists dedicated to a therapeutical approach to this pathology.

  • [Title] Papillary serous carcinoma of peritoneum: case study and review of the literature on the differential diagnosis of malignant peritoneal tumors.
  • The distinction between malignant mesothelioma and other malignant neoplasms diffusely involving the peritoneum is important for proper patient treatment.
  • The extra-ovarian peritoneal serous papillary carcinoma is a rare, primary, multicentric peritoneal tumor that is morphologically identical to ovarian serous carcinoma of equivalent grade, but can spare or minimally involve the ovaries.
  • We report such a tumor in a 65-year-old female who had abdominal swelling, ascites with positive cytology and a high grade of nuclear atypia in malignant cells as well as elevated serum CA125.
  • Since the amount of residual disease may be an important prognostic determining factor in primary papillary serous carcinoma of the peritoneum, the patient was debulked to no macroscopic disease and was then given platin-based chemotherapy.
  • The tumor's differential diagnosis from malignant mesothelioma was based, apart from morphologic criteria, on the tumor's immunoreactivity to MOC-31, Ber-EP4 and TAG-72, as well as on the lack of immunostaining for keratin 5/6 and calretinin.
  • Differential diagnosis from ovarian cancer was possible only after the pathological examination of the surgically resected ovaries; the tumor showed minimal superficial invasion of the ovarian cortex.

  • [Title] Long-term indwelling pleural catheter (PleurX) for malignant pleural effusion unsuitable for talc pleurodesis.
  • AIMS: Talc pleurodesis using talc slurry via chest tube is a primary option in malignant pleural effusion, since life expectancy is short and surgical decortication is hazardous.
  • METHODS: Between March 2004 and September 2005, 51 consecutive patients with malignant pleural effusion, and clinically considered unsuitable for talc pleurodesis, received an indwelling pleural catheter (Denver PleurX).
  • There were 19 non-small cell lung cancer cases, 7 mesothelioma, and 25 with other malignancy.
  • Chemotherapy was being given to 18 patients and was not interrupted.
  • Mean survival was 3 months (range 5 days to 37+months) for all patients, with best median survivals of 5.5-6 months in breast and ovarian cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: An indwelling pleural catheter is a safe alternative for patients with malignant pleural effusion unsuitable for talc pleurodesis.

  • The most common primary malignant lesion is rhabdomyosarcoma.
  • Malignant tumors are treated based on histology and often with chemotherapy and/or radiation along with surgical resection if feasible.
  • Endometriosis, a benign process that metastasizes to the diaphragm, is typically treated medically; surgical ablation or resection is considered only after failed conservative treatment.
  • Surgical resection of metastatic malignant tumors, such as ovarian cancer and thymoma, as well as malignancies affecting the diaphragm by direct extension, such as mesothelioma, lung, and esophageal cancer, may provide some survival advantage.

  • [Title] [Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma].
  • Mesothelioma is a neoplasm originating from the mesothelial surface lining cells of the serous human cavities.
  • It may involve the pleura, less frequently the peritoneum rarely, the pericardium, the tunica vaginalis testis and ovarian epithelium.
  • A causal relationship between asbestos exposure and pleural, peritoneal and pericardial malign mesothelioma was suggested, the risk of cancer being correlated to cumulate exposure.
  • Studies from National Cancer Institute, USA, show that the malignant mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive asbestos related malignancy.
  • The symptomatology is insidious and poses difficult problems in diagnosis and treatment.
  • This paper presents the case of a 59 year old patient with malignant peritoneal mesothelioma who worked almost 40 years as an electrician, exposed to asbestos fibers.
  • It was performed surgical ablation of the tumor, splenectomy with favorable postoperative evolution, the patient being now under chemotherapy treatment.

  • [Title] Low-molecular weight forms of cyclin E differentiate ovarian carcinoma from cells of mesothelial origin and are associated with poor survival in ovarian carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The authors recently reported on the role of cyclin E in differentiating ovarian/primary peritoneal carcinoma from malignant peritoneal mesothelioma using gene expression arrays.
  • In the current study, they analyzed the expression of low-molecular weight (LMW) forms of cyclin E in ovarian carcinoma, malignant mesothelioma, and benign reactive effusions.
  • METHODS: Cyclin E protein expression was analyzed in 98 effusions (72 ovarian carcinomas, 14 malignant mesotheliomas, and 12 reactive specimens) using immunoblotting.
  • Sixty-two ovarian carcinoma effusions were studied further for cyclin E expression using immunohistochemistry.
  • The correlations between cyclin E expression in ovarian carcinoma and clinical parameters, including chemotherapy response, were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: LMW forms of cyclin E were identified in 54 of 72 ovarian carcinoma effusions (75%) compared with 1 of 14 malignant mesothelioma effusions (7%) and 1 of 12 reactive effusions (8%) (P < .001).
  • Their presence in ovarian carcinoma was associated with a higher percentage of cyclin E-positive cells (P = .001) and increased staining intensity (P < .001) using immunohistochemistry.
  • No association with chemotherapy response was observed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: LMW forms of cyclin E differentiated ovarian carcinoma from benign and malignant mesothelial cells and were associated with increased protein expression using immunohistochemistry.
  • The expression of LMW cyclin E forms was not associated with chemotherapy response, although it may be a marker of aggressive disease in patients with metastatic ovarian carcinoma.

  • [Title] Phase I clinical and pharmacological study of intraperitoneal cis-bis-neodecanoato( trans- R, R-1, 2-diaminocyclohexane)-platinum II entrapped in multilamellar liposome vesicles.
  • Laparoscopy was performed on the first two courses for evaluation, adhesiolysis, and chemotherapy administration.
  • Afterwards, chemotherapy was administered through a peritoneal catheter.
  • Diagnoses were: malignant mesothelioma (six patients), signet ring cell (three), colon adenocarcinoma, pseudomyxoma peritonei, gastrointestinal stromal tumor (two each), and ovarian carcinoma (one).
  • Pharmacokinetics studies indicated a rapid but low absorption of drug into the systemic circulation, with a prolonged retention of platinum in the plasma compartment.
  • Peritoneal L-NDDP exposure was 17 to 49-times greater than in the plasma compartment.
