  • [Title] Novel strategies for treating relapsed/refractory urothelial carcinoma.
  • Advanced urothelial cancer is associated with a poor prognosis and there has been no substantial progress over the past three decades since the development of platinum-based multiagent chemotherapy.
  • Clinical trials evaluating novel agents and combinations including chemotherapeutic drugs, as well as targeted inhibitors, are desperately needed.
  • With a better understanding of the complex molecular alterations that drive urothelial tumorigenesis, new targets for novel therapeutics are being defined.
  • This article will describe the current state of advanced urothelial cancer treatment and provide a comprehensive discussion of novel agents in development.

  • [Title] Phase II trial of pemetrexed as second-line therapy in patients with metastatic urothelial carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this single-center phase II study was to determine the activity of pemetrexed administered as second-line therapy in patients with advanced urothelial carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Patients with advanced urothelial carcinoma that had relapsed after receiving perioperative chemotherapy, or progressed on first-line chemotherapy for metastatic disease, were eligible for enrollment.
  • Treatment was generally well tolerated, however, 2/13 patients developed febrile neutropenia.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pemetrexed as second-line therapy in advanced urothelial carcinoma is associated with modest activity.
  • The role of this novel antifolate in chemotherapy-naïve patients warrants further investigation.

  • [Title] Phase II trial of neoadjuvant gemcitabine and cisplatin in patients with resectable bladder carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVES: Gemcitabine and cisplatin (GC) is an active combination in the treatment of metastatic bladder cancer.
  • We have prospectively analyzed the efficacy and tolerability of GC as neoadjuvant treatment of invasive bladder cancer.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this single-institution phase II trial, patients with muscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma received three cycles of gemcitabine 1200 mg/m2 on days 1 and 8 with cisplatin 75 mg/m2 on day 1 prior to surgery.
  • Radiologic response was evaluated by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • All patients were referred to surgery after chemotherapy completion.

  • [Title] Palliative radiation therapy of symptomatic recurrent bladder cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Palliative radiation therapy (RT) is an established tool in the management of symptoms caused by malignancies.
  • RT is effective at palliating both locally advanced and metastatic cancer, including related symptoms of pain, bleeding, or obstruction.
  • Most data on palliative RT is in regard to its use in the treatment of painful bone metastases.
  • There are also data that support RT palliation for locally advanced or recurrent rectal, prostate, and gynecological cancers.
  • With regard to bladder cancer there is some evidence of the benefit of palliative RT for the control of urinary symptoms and hematuria; however, there is little evidence for the use of palliative RT for pain associated with locally recurrent bladder cancer.
  • We report a case of locally advanced recurrent bladder cancer which was refractory to medical pain management, and was found to be highly responsive to palliative RT.
  • CASE REPORT: An 80-year-old woman with recurrent bladder cancer and intractable pelvic pain refractory to oral and transdermal pain medications, received palliative pelvic RT to a dose of 50 Gy (5000 cGy) in 25 fractions with complete resolution of pain.
  • The patient was originally found to have dysuria, frequency, and hematuria, secondary to an invasive high grade transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder with an adenocarcinoma component, AJCC pT2b N1 M0 Stage IV, for which she underwent a radical cystectomy, total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, partial vaginectomy, and ileal conduit reconstruction.
  • After undergoing 4 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy, the patient did well for 5 months with no evidence of symptomatic, clinical, or radiographic recurrence of disease.
  • The patient was treated with another course of chemotherapy and pain was managed with relatively low doses of opioid medication (25mcg transdermal fentanyl patch, and oxycodone 5mg bid).
  • Ultimately a pain medication regimen of 200mcg transdermal fentanyl patch q2 days, oxycontin 20mg bid, oxycodone 5 - 10mg q 4 hours, ibuprofen 400mg q 8 hours, and gabapentin 600mg TID was not effective in controlling pain.
  • She was able to decrease pain medications, increase overall activity, and gain significant improvement in sleep quality and appetite even early on in the course of her radiation therapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Palliative radiation therapy has been well studied in the setting of bone metastases and treatment of hematuria for locally advanced bladder cancer.
  • There is little data that we are aware of on the use of RT for pain control with patients that have recurrent, locally advanced bladder cancer.
  • RT is an excellent option for pain management in recurrent bladder cancer and should be offered to patients whose pain is not otherwise optimally controlled.
  • Palliative RT is an important component in the multimodality approach to cancer pain management and optimization of quality of life.

  • [Title] Outcome of patients who refuse cystectomy after receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
  • OBJECTIVES: To determine the outcome of patients who refuse cystectomy after receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
  • METHODS: Between 1995 and 2001, 63 patients were evaluated who declined to undergo a planned cystectomy, because they achieved a complete clinical response to neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy.
  • Patient, tumor, and treatment features were assessed prospectively, and correlated in univariate and multivariate analyses with overall survival.
  • The median follow-up was 86 mo and all patients were followed for more than 5 yr.
  • RESULTS: Forty patients (64%) survived, with 54% of them having an intact functioning bladder.
  • The most significant treatment variable predicting better survival was complete resection of the invasive tumor on re-staging transurethral resection before starting chemotherapy.
  • Of 23 patients (36%) who subsequently died of disease, 19 (30%) relapsed with invasive cancer in the bladder.
  • Over 90% of surviving patients had solitary, small, and low-stage invasive tumors completely resected, and 83% survived without relapses in the bladder.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Selected patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancers may survive after transurethral resection and neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and tumor features can identify which patients responding completely to chemotherapy may survive without cystectomy.

  • OBJECTIVE: To study chemotherapy practice in invasive bladder cancer in a cancer centre (Centre Léon Bérard).
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective study concerned all patients treated by chemotherapy between 1994 and 2000, either in the adjuvant setting (38) or for metastatic disease (66).
  • RESULTS: Twenty four of the 38 patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy were treated with MVAC, 21% developed febrile neutropenia and 60% relapsed.
  • In patients treated for metastatic disease, the objective response rate was 36% and the median survival with advanced disease after chemotherapy was 10 months.
  • The toxicity of chemotherapy was also fairly high (21% of febrile neutropenia).
  • CONCLUSION: Prospective studies help to optimize chemotherapy protocols, but practice studies show the limited results and the high toxicity.

  • [Title] [Invasive bladder cancer recurrenced 5 years after complete response status by chemotherapy and radiotherapy: a case report].
  • A 72-year-old man had undergone trasucethral resection of bladder tumor (TUR-Bt) three times from 1990 to 1991 and he had been lost to follow with no recurrence from 1996, came to our hospital complaining of asymptomatic macrohematuria in May 1999.
  • A bladder tumor existed around the right ureteral orifice with right hydronephrosis.
  • MRI and TUR-Bt revealed that the cancer was transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) > small cell carcinoma, G3, pT3b.
  • Because the patient insisted on bladder preservation, intra arterial chemotherapy with cisplatinum (CDDP) and epirubicin (EPI-adr) followed by radiotherapy with CDDP was performed.
  • The treatment resulted in a clinical complete response (CR), and the bladder was preserved.
  • In January 2004, an invasive bladder cancer recurred at the left lateral wall.
  • This time, neoadjuvant intra-arterial chemotherapy with CDDP and EPI-adr, followed by radical cystectomy was performed.
  • Histologically, the recurrent bladder cancer was TCC, G3, pT3b.

  • [Title] Long-term intravesical adjuvant chemotherapy further reduces recurrence rate compared with short-term intravesical chemotherapy and short-term therapy with Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: We present a randomised, parallel group, multicentre phase 4 trial comparing short- and long-term chemoprophylaxis with Mitomycin C (MMC) with short-term immunoprophylaxis with Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) after transurethral resection of the bladder for non-muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Four hundred ninety-five patients with intermediate- to high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (recurrent and/or multifocal pTaG1, TaG2-3, and T1G1-3) were randomised to BCG RIVM 2 x 10(8) CFU weekly for 6 wk, MMC 20 mg weekly for 6 wk, or MMC 20 mg weekly for 6 wk followed by monthly instillations for 3 yr.
  • RESULTS: The 3-yr recurrence-free rates were 65.5% (95%CI, 55.9-73.5%) for short-term BCG, and 68.6% (59.9-75.7%) for short-term MMC, whereas recurrence-free rates were significantly increased to 86.1% (77.9-91.4%) in patients with MMC long-term therapy (log-rank test, p=0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Long-term MMC significantly reduced the risk of tumour recurrence without enhanced toxicity compared with both short-term BCG and MMC in patients with intermediate- and high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma.
  • Our data provide a rationale for maintenance intravesical chemotherapy in this population.

  • [Title] Micropapillary bladder cancer: a review of Léon Bérard Cancer Center experience.
  • BACKGROUND: Micropapillary bladder cancer is a rare and aggressive variant of urothelial carcinoma.
  • A retrospective review of our experience in management of patients with muscle-invasive or metastatic micropapillary bladder cancer was performed to better define the behavior of this disease.
  • METHODS: We reviewed the records of the 11 patients with micropapillary bladder cancer who were evaluated and treated at Léon Bérard Cancer Center between 1994 and 2007, accounting for 1,2% of all urothelial tumors treated in this institution.
  • Two patients presented with stage II, one with stage III and eight with stage IV disease All 5 patients who had node positive metastases and treated with radical surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy relapsed and had a disease free survival of 9.6 months.
  • CONCLUSION: Micropapillary bladder cancer is probably an underreported variant of urothelial carcinoma associated with poor prognosis.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy might have a questionable efficacy and the optimal treatment strategy is yet to be defined.

  • We report a rare case of granulomatous balanoposthitis after intravesical Bacillus-Calmette-Guerin (BCG) instillation therapy in a 58-year-old man, which followed transurethral resection (TUR) for recurrent bladder cancer, when his anterior urethra was slightly narrow and his foreskin was with phimosis.
  • Intravesical BCG instillation therapy was started for prophylaxis of recurrent bladder cancer after TUR.
  • The patient continued chemotherapy with isoniazid for the next 12 months.
  • There was no recurrence of bladder cancer or balanoposthitis for 15 months and to date.

  • The objective of this exploratory, open-label, single-arm, phase II clinical trial was to evaluate plitidepsin (5 mg/m(2)) administered as a 3-hour continuous intravenous infusion every two weeks to patients with locally advanced/metastatic transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelium who relapsed/progressed after first-line chemotherapy.
  • Treatment cycles were repeated for up to 12 cycles or until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, patient refusal or treatment delay for >2 weeks.
  • Secondary endpoints were the rate of SD lasting > or = 6 months and time-to-event variables.
  • Twenty-one patients received 57 treatment cycles.
  • Treatment was feasible and generally well tolerated in this patient population; however the lack of antitumor activity precludes further studies of plitidepsin in this setting.

  • [Title] [Urethral recurrence of invasive carcinoma following BCG treatment for bladder Ca in situ].
  • [Transliterated title] Recidiva uretrale di Ca infiltrante dopo trattamento con BCG per Ca in situ vescicale.
  • CIS is a flat, high-grade, non-invasive microscopic urothelial carcinoma.
  • It is considered a precursor of invasive bladder cancer.
  • CIS is classified as primary, secondary or concurrent, when occurred as isolated CIS without cuncurrent papillary tumors, or detected during the follow-up of patients with a previous papillary tumor, or finally in the presence of bladder neoplasm.
  • BCG is widely established as the treatment of choice for CIS with a success rate of approximately 70%.
  • BCG reduces the risk of progression of CIS into invasive carcinoma in 30 to 50% of cases.
  • Direct and prolonged contact between the urothelium and BCG is a prerequisite for successful therapy.
  • CIS may be present only in the epithelial lining of the prostatic urethra or in the ducts, or in the worst case it may be found in the prostatic tissue stroma.
  • 83 patients, enrolled from 1/1996 to 12/2005 at our urological department with CIS: primary (focal and multifocal) in 25, secondary in 7 and cuncurrent in 51 (associated with T1bG3 cancer in 37 cases), and urethral CIS in 5 and conservatively treated by TUR and intravescical instillations of BCG, 4 developed afterwords only invasive cancer of the urethra in the absence of bladder involvement.
  • In 2 cases cancer arised from the prostatic fossa after TURP, in 1 from membranous urethra and in the last from prostatic ducts.
  • Among the 4 patients, 3 were treated by cystoprostatourethrectomy and Platinum-based chemotherapy, 1 refused surgical treatment.
  • In the last patient cancer relapsed at 36-month's follow-up.
  • We conclude that prostatic/urethral involvement during follow-up after successful intravesical treatment with BCG in CIS represents a high risk of developing invasive and incontrolled cancer.

  • INTRODUCTION: Neuroendocrine bladder cancer is extremely rare, with an estimated incidence of 0.35-0.70% of all bladder tumors.
  • The small-cell carcinoma represents the most frequent histologic variant described.
  • Small-cell carcinoma is an epithelial tumor associated with a more aggressive behavior and poorer prognosis than transitional cell bladder carcinoma.
  • At the time of presentation 59% of patients have clinical stage >T2 and 56% show metastatic disease.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report three cases of pure neuroendocrine small-cell bladder cancer.
  • Two patients were treated by radical cystectomy, bilateral pelvic limph node resections and urinary derivation.
  • Platinum-based adjuvant chemotherapy was proposed but only two patients received the treatment.
  • RESULTS: In 2 patients residual or relapsed cancer reappered within 2 months after surgery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the absence of a prospective study, and because of the rarity of the disease, the best treatment for small-cell bladder cancer remains uncertain.
  • Neoadjuvant chemotherapy with platinum regimen plus aggressive surgical approach will be the treatment of choice.
  • The association of chemotherapy and radiotherapy should also be considered.

  • [Title] Bladder cancer detection using FISH (UroVysion assay).
  • UroVysion is a fluorescence in situ hybridization assay that was developed for the detection of bladder cancer in urine specimens.
  • The UroVysion assay works by detecting urinary cells that have chromosomal abnormalities consistent with a diagnosis of bladder cancer.
  • Studies have shown that UroVysion is more sensitive than urine cytology for the detection of all stages and grades of bladder cancer.
  • UroVysion is Food and Drug Administration-approved for the detection of recurrent bladder cancer in voided urine specimens from patients with a history of bladder cancer and for the detection of bladder cancer in voided urine specimens from patients with gross or microscopic hematuria, but no previous history of bladder cancer.

  • [Title] Phase II study of pemetrexed for second-line treatment of transitional cell cancer of the urothelium.
  • PURPOSE: To assess the antitumor activity and toxicity of pemetrexed as second-line chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced or metastatic transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urothelium.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eligible patients had a performance status of 0 or 1, adequate organ function, previous treatment with one prior chemotherapy regimen for locally advanced or metastatic TCC of the urothelium or relapsed within 1 year of adjuvant or neoadjuvant treatment.
  • The median time to progressive disease was 2.9 months (95% CI, 1.7 months to 4.6 months) and median overall survival was 9.6 months (95% CI, 5.1 months to 14.6 months).
  • CONCLUSION: Single-agent pemetrexed is safe and active as second-line treatment of patients with advanced TCC of the urothelium.

  • [Title] EUS-guided FNA for the diagnosis of recurrent bladder cancer through the ileal conduit: a novel approach.
  • BACKGROUND: Diagnosing local recurrence of tumor after cystectomy and ileal conduit construction for urinary bladder cancer remains a diagnostic challenge.
  • Also, distinction of benign stricture from recurrent tumor at the site of ureteral anastomosis in the ileal conduit is difficult.
  • OBJECTIVE: A new method is described for performing EUS-guided FNA through the ileal conduit in patients suspected of having local tumor recurrence after complete cystectomy for bladder cancer.
  • PATIENTS: Three patients who had undergone total cystectomy and ileal conduit construction for bladder cancer underwent EUS-guided FNA through the ileal conduit for evaluation of suspected tumor recurrence at the site of anastomosis of the distal ureter and the ileal conduit.
  • A diagnosis of recurrent transitional cell cancer was made in 2 patients and anastomotic stricture was found in 1 patient.
  • Both patients with tumor recurrence received palliative chemotherapy, and the patient with an anastomotic stricture was managed by placement of a nephrostomy stent.
  • CONCLUSIONS: EUS-guided FNA through the ileal conduit is technically feasible, safe, and establishes diagnosis in patients suspected of tumor recurrence after complete cystectomy for bladder cancer.

  • [Title] Combined thermo-chemotherapy for recurrent bladder cancer after bacillus Calmette-Guerin.
  • PURPOSE: Despite an initial adequate response many patients with nonmuscle invasive urothelial cell carcinoma of the bladder eventually have recurrence after intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin treatments.
  • We evaluated the efficacy of combined bladder wall hyperthermia and intravesical mitomycin C instillation (thermo-chemotherapy) in cases of recurrence after bacillus Calmette-Guerin.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 111 patients with recurrent papillary nonmuscle invasive urothelial cell carcinoma of the bladder after previous bacillus Calmette-Guerin treatment underwent complete bladder tumor resection and were referred for prophylactic adjuvant treatment with thermo-chemotherapy.
  • Treatment was received on an outpatient basis weekly for 6 weeks, followed by 6 maintenance sessions at 4 to 6-week intervals.
  • Each treatment included 2, 30-minute cycles of 20 mg mitomycin C and bladder wall hyperthermia to 42C +/- 2C.
  • Cystoscopy and urine cytology were performed after the completion of induction treatment and every 3 months thereafter.
  • No maintenance treatment was associated with decreased efficacy, that is the recurrence rate was 61% at 2 years vs 39% in those with maintenance treatments (p = 0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Thermo-chemotherapy may be effective for papillary nonmuscle invasive urothelial cell carcinoma of the bladder that recurs after BCG treatment without increasing the risk of tumor progression.
  • Maintenance therapy is important and improves the outcome.
