  • [Title] Pharmacologic inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinases 4 and 6 arrests the growth of glioblastoma multiforme intracranial xenografts.
  • In vitro testing of PD-0332991 against a panel of GBM cell lines revealed a potent G(1) cell cycle arrest and induction of senescence in each of 16 retinoblastoma protein (Rb)-proficient cell lines regardless of other genetic lesions, whereas 5 cell lines with homozygous inactivation of Rb were completely resistant to treatment.
  • PD-0332991 was found to efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier and proved highly effective in suppressing the growth of intracranial GBM xenograft tumors, including those that had recurred after initial therapy with temozolomide.
  • Remarkably, no mice receiving PD-0332991 died as a result of disease progression while on therapy.
  • Additionally, the combination of PD-0332991 and radiation therapy resulted in significantly increased survival benefit compared with either therapy alone.
  • In total, our results support clinical trial evaluation of PD-0332991 against newly diagnosed as well as recurrent GBM, and indicate that Rb status is the primary determinant of potential benefit from this therapy.

  • [Title] Results of treatment of retinoblastoma that has infiltrated the optic nerve, is recurrent, or has metastasized outside the eyeball.
  • Since the development of chemotherapy regimens for patients with retinoblastoma started in the 1950s, various agents and regimens have been employed for various kinds of patients.
  • Chemotherapy has been employed for:.
  • With the addition of appropriate chemotherapies to the conventional treatment modalities such as enucleation and radiotherapy, patients with advanced retinoblastoma are expected to obtain a survival benefit.
  • Moreover, a new modality combined with autologous stem cell support allowed us to use high-dose alkylating agents such as thiotepa, melphalan, and cyclophosphamide, which resulted in better prognosis for patients with metastatic retinoblastoma.
  • Because of the small number of patients with retinoblastoma and the diversity of the disease characteristics in individual patients, there have been no clinical trials to determine whether to recommend a particular regimen, or to identify specific criteria in patients who would benefit from chemotherapy.
  • Well-designed prospective controlled trials are warranted to establish a standard treatment strategy for patients with extraocular retinoblastoma.

  • [Title] Echography of retinoblastoma: histopathologic correlation and serial evaluation after globe-conserving radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
  • PURPOSE: To assess the sensitivity of echography in detecting retinoblastoma, compare tumor features observed by echography with histopathology data, and assess the usefulness of echography in serially following retinoblastoma tumors after globe-conserving treatments.
  • METHODS: The medical and echography records of all patients treated for retinoblastoma at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute between 1991 and 1997 were reviewed.
  • All eyes underwent pretreatment echographic evaluation, and eyes treated with external beam radiotherapy, brachytherapy, or chemotherapy underwent serial follow-up echography.
  • Echography demonstrated evidence of retinoblastoma in 69 of 69 (100%) eyes and calcification in 63 (91.3%) eyes.
  • CONCLUSION: Echography is a useful adjunct to indirect ophthalmoscopy in establishing the diagnosis of retinoblastoma.
  • While not as specific as histopathology, echographic evaluation before and after treatment of retinoblastoma permits monitoring of treatment response and may aid in detecting recurrent tumor growth or failure to respond to treatment.

  • [Title] Intra-arterial chemotherapy for retinoblastoma: the beginning of a long journey.
  • Conservative management of retinoblastoma has evolved from external beam radiotherapy to systemic chemotherapy by intravenous route and now to localized chemotherapy by intra-arterial route in some cases.
  • With 16-year experience, systemic chemotherapy has been found effective for minimal to moderately advanced retinoblastoma with tumour control of 90% or better, few side effects and even hope for return of some vision.
  • Localized intra-arterial chemotherapy with delivery under fluoroscopy and catheterization of the ophthalmic artery is now undergoing evaluation and appears to provide striking control for retinoblastoma, particularly recurrent tumour seeds following other therapies.
  • Toxicity of the chemotherapy to the delicate retinal vessels is unknown.
  • Despite its allure, intra-arterial chemotherapy should be used with caution, as in other fields of paediatric oncology it has been found to provide no advantage over intravenous chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Histopathologic findings in eyes with retinoblastoma treated only with chemoreduction.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the histopathologic findings in the eyes with retinoblastoma that had been treated only with chemoreduction.
  • Study Material Ten eyes of 8 patients with retinoblastoma that were enucleated after therapy consisting only of systemic chemotherapy (chemoreduction).
  • Adjuvant treatment to the tumor was not provided in any case.
  • Main Outcome Measure Histopathologic features of retinoblastoma following chemoreduction.
  • The indication for enucleation was retinoblastoma recurrence as subretinal and/or vitreous seeds in 7 eyes and extensive vitreous hemorrhage in 3 with uncertainty about viable-appearing tumor.
  • In 8 of 10 eyes, histopathologic examination disclosed tumor regression without viable-appearing retinoblastoma in the main tumor.
  • In the remaining 2 eyes, an area of posttherapeutic regression was present but contained foci of mitotically active, viable-appearing malignant retinoblastoma cells.
  • Of those 7 eyes enucleated for recurrent subretinal and/or vitreous seeds, viable tumor seeds were confirmed histopathologically in all cases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Histopathologic examination of 10 enucleated eyes following chemoreduction alone revealed that the main retinoblastoma regressed in all eyes.
  • Despite the lack of viable-appearing retinoblastoma within the main tumor, enucleation was performed for viable subretinal and/or vitreous seeds in 7 cases and confirmed histopathologically.

  • [Title] Irresponsiveness of two retinoblastoma cases to conservative therapy correlates with up- regulation of hERG1 channels and of the VEGF-A pathway.
  • BACKGROUND: Treatment strategies for Retinoblastoma (RB), the most common primary intraocular tumor in children, have evolved over the past few decades and chemoreduction is currently the most popular treatment strategy.
  • Despite success, systemic chemotherapeutic treatment has relevant toxicity, especially in the pediatric population.
  • Antiangiogenic therapy has thus been proposed as a valuable alternative for pediatric malignancies, in particolar RB.
  • We present here two cases of sporadic, bilateral RB that did not benefit from the conservative treatment and we provide evidence that the VEGF-A pathway is significantly up-regulated in both RB cases along with an over expression of hERG1 K+ channels.
  • Neither of them got benefits from conservative treatment, and the two eyes were enucleated.
  • Moreover, both the transcripts and proteins of the hERG1 K+ channels turned out to be up-regulated in the two RB cases compared to the non cancerous retinal tissue.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We provide evidence that the VEGF-A pathway is up-regulated in two particular aggressive cases of bilateral RB, which did not experience any benefit from conservative treatment, showing the overexpression of the vegf-a, flt-1, kdr and hif1-α transcripts and the high secretion of VEGF-A.
  • Moreover we also show for the first time that the herg1 gene transcripts and protein are over expressed in RB, as occurs in several aggressive tumors.
  • These results further stress the relevance of the VEGF-A pathway in RB and the correlation with hERG1, making aggressive and recurrent RB cases good candidates for antiangiogenesis therapies based on the targeting of VEGF-A.

  • Hodgkin's disease is, after retinoblastoma, the most common primary tumor that is associated with development of second malignant neoplasm.
  • We report the case of a eight-year-old girl who developed HD 6 years after treatment for common acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
  • Our experience suggests that we should follow strictly our patients with ALL and be ready to intervene with invasive diagnostic procedures at the least suspicion of a second or recurrent neoplasm.
  • The most frequent causes of second tumors are radiotherapy, genetic susceptibility and prior treatment with certain chemotherapeutic agents, such as nitrogen mustards.
  • It is likely that any type of immunodeficiency, even without symptoms, might play a role in the development of second tumors in childhood.

  • [Title] Thiotepa/topotecan/carboplatin with autologous stem cell rescue in recurrent/refractory/poor prognosis pediatric malignancies of the central nervous system.
  • We present ten patients with recurrent or progressive central nervous system malignancies treated on a myeloablative regimen using these drugs.
  • METHODS: Treatment included: Thiotepa 300 mg/m(2) on days -8, -7, and -6; topotecan 2 mg/m(2) on days -8, -7, -6, -5, and -4; and carboplatin approximately 500 mg/m(2) (Calvert formula-area under the curve = 7) on days -5, -4, and -3.
  • Five had medulloblastoma (MB), four had high grade glioma (HGG), and one had trilateral retinoblastoma/pineoblastoma (tRB/PB).
  • Prior treatment for all patients included surgery and chemotherapy (1-7 regimens, median 2).
  • Three patients had residual disease at the time of transplant.
  • Four patients are event-free survivors at a median of 6 years (range 2.8-7.6 years) after treatment including 2/5 MB patients, 1/4 HGG patients, and the tRB/PB patient.
  • Four of the seven patients with no evidence of disease/minimal residual disease status at the time of stem cell rescue are long-term survivors versus 1/3 with measurable disease.

  • [Title] Results of a prospective study for the treatment of retinoblastoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The objectives of this prospective study were to avoid adjuvant treatment for patients with intraocular disease and patients with postlaminar optic nerve invasion (PL-ONI) without full choroidal or scleral invasion.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy (Regimen 1) was given to patients with scleral invasion, PL-ONI without cut section, and full choroidal and/or scleral invasion.
  • A more intensive regimen of higher dose intravenous chemotherapy (Regimen 2) and local radiotherapy was given to patients with PL-ONI and compromise at the cut end and to patients with overt extraocular disease.
  • METHODS: Six-month intravenous chemotherapy included carboplatin plus etoposide alternating with cyclophosphamide plus vincristine (Regimen 1) and the same drugs at higher dosage plus idarubicin (Regimen 2).
  • None of 22 patients with isolated PL-ONI developed recurrent disease, whereas 2 of 8 patients with concomitant risk factors had tumor recurrences and died.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adjuvant therapy can be avoided in patients with intraocular and isolated PL-ONI.
  • Patients with PL-ONI who also had other risk factors required intensive adjuvant therapy, such as patients with cut-end and overt extraocular disease.

  • [Title] Bcar1/p130Cas protein and primary breast cancer: prognosis and response to tamoxifen treatment.
  • BACKGROUND: The product of the Bcar1/p130Cas (breast cancer resistance/p130Crk-associated substrate) gene causes resistance to antiestrogen drugs in human breast cancer cells in vitro.
  • The levels of Bcar1/p130Cas protein were tested for associations and trends against clinicopathologic and patient characteristics, the lengths of relapse-free survival and overall survival (n = 775), and the efficacy of first-line treatment with tamoxifen for recurrent or metastatic disease (n = 268).
  • The response to tamoxifen therapy in patients with recurrent disease was reduced in patients with primary tumors that expressed high levels of Bcar1/p130Cas.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with primary breast tumors expressing a high level of Bcar1/p130Cas protein appear to experience more rapid disease recurrence and have a greater risk of (intrinsic) resistance to tamoxifen therapy.

  • A 2 1/2-year-old girl with a history of bilateral retinoblastoma underwent primary enucleation of the right eye and was referred for further management of persistent tumor in the fellow eye.
  • Previous treatment of the left eye included external beam radiotherapy, systemic chemotherapy, laser photocoagulation, cryotherapy, and direct scleral application of a bare iridium-192 radioactive seed.
  • Examination revealed focal full-thickness necrosis of the left upper and lower eyelid and a large inferonasal viable retinoblastoma tumor with overlying retinal detachment.
  • Systemic chemotherapy and direct laser photocoagulation were administered.
  • Four months after presentation, the patient developed focal scleral necrosis with 360 degrees hemorrhagic choroidal detachment.
  • Enucleation was performed and histopathologic examination demonstrated full-thickness scleral necrosis with adjacent viable retinoblastoma tumor cells.
  • Follow-up examinations showed no evidence of recurrent or metastatic tumor.
  • This case is the first report of scleral necrosis following combined modality treatment of retinoblastoma.

  • [Title] Iodine 125 plaque radiotherapy as salvage treatment for retinoblastoma recurrence after chemoreduction in 84 tumors.
  • PURPOSE: To assess tumor control and complications of iodine 125 (I125) plaque radiotherapy for retinoblastoma recurrence after chemoreduction (CRD).
  • PARTICIPANTS: Children with retinoblastoma treated on the Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital, initially examined from July 1994 to April 2005.
  • The only alternatives to plaque radiotherapy in these cases would have been external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), additional chemotherapy, or enucleation.
  • Of the 59 recurrent tumors after CRD alone, 56 (95%) were controlled with plaque radiotherapy.
  • Of the 25 recurrent tumors after CRD and EBRT, 100% were controlled with plaque radiotherapy.
  • Of the 3 failures after plaque radiotherapy, the median time to failure (tumor recurrence) was 4 months and all recurrences were detected within 1 year.

  • Androgen receptor (AR) is the main therapeutic target for treatment of metastatic prostate cancers (PCa).
  • As recurrent tumors restore AR activity independent of hormones, new therapies that abolish AR activity have been sought to prevent or delay the emergence of ablation-resistant disease.
  • HDHS treatment of androgen-dependent LNCaP and androgen-responsive 22Rv1 cells induced apoptosis as shown by nucleosome release, activation of caspase-3 and caspase-7, and cleavage of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase accompanied with concomitant up-regulation of tumor suppressor p53.
  • HDHS also decreased the protein expression of cyclins (D1 and E), cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK2, CDK4, and CDK6), and retinoblastoma phosphorylation in PCa cells, which suggest cell cycle arrest in the G(1) phase.
  • Overall, our data suggest that HDHS has potential for use in chemoprevention and chemotherapy of PCa.

  • [Title] Retinoblastoma: a three-year-study at a Brazilian medical school hospital.
  • OBJECTIVE: To present the characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients with retinoblastoma.
  • METHODS: A retrospective case series was conducted to review the records of all new patients diagnosed with retinoblastoma between 2003 and 2005.
  • Eyes with early disease, or advanced disease with potential vision were treated with chemotherapy (carboplatin and etoposide) in conjunction with early local therapy (laser or cryo).
  • Radiotherapy was used in cases where the disease did not respond to the above protocols or in recurrent cases.
  • Eyes in the late stage of disease with no potential vision in the initial examination or eyes and where conservative treatment had failed were enucleated.
  • RESULTS: In total, we reviewed 28 new cases of retinoblastoma, 15 of which were unilateral and 13 of which were bilateral (46%).
  • Among the 13 bilateral cases, 13 eyes (50%) were enucleated, 11 eyes (42.4%) were saved with chemotherapy in conjunction with local therapy and 2 eyes (7.6%) were saved using external beam radiotherapy (mean follow-up: 41.91 months).
  • CONCLUSION: In this population, retinoblastoma was diagnosed too late and most eyes were consequently enucleated.

  • [Title] Impairments in antifolate transport are common in retinoblastoma tumor samples.
  • BACKGROUND: Many patients with retinoblastoma have a genetic predisposition to cancer and external beam radiation therapy and alkylating agent chemotherapy may increase their risk of secondary malignancy.
  • Identification of effective chemotherapy agents for retinoblastoma that are not associated with an elevated risk of secondary malignancy would be beneficial.
  • PROCEDURE: Twenty-six specimens of fresh retinoblastoma tumor cells were studied in vitro with a PT430 competitive displacement assay.
  • CONCLUSION: These results would support consideration of a phase II study to determine the effectiveness of trimetrexate for recurrent intra-ocular retinoblastoma.

  • While advances in the treatment of pediatric cancers have increased cure rates, children with metastatic or recurrent solid tumors have a dismal prognosis despite initial transient responses to therapy.
  • While clearly demonstrated to improve outcomes in patients with metastatic neuroblastoma, autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is also frequently used to treat patients with other high-risk diseases such as Ewing sarcoma, osteosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, Wilms' tumor, retinoblastoma, germ cell tumors, lymphomas and brain tumors.
  • These published literature demonstrate that autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation results in most cases in equivalent or superior outcomes when compared with conventional therapies.
  • Since the inception of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, regimen-related toxicity has markedly decreased and the vast majority of treatment failures are now due to disease recurrence.
  • Prospective clinical trials are needed to identify specific high-risk patient populations, with randomization (when possible) to compare outcomes of patients undergoing autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with those receiving standard therapy.
  • In addition, investigators need to better define the role of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in these solid tumors, particularly in combination with other therapeutic modalities such as immunotherapy and novel cell processing methodologies.

  • p21WAF1/CIP1 protein is a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, able to prevent the CDK2/cyclin E induced retinoblastoma protein (pRB) phosphorylation, thus inhibiting cell cycle progression at G1 phase. p21WAF1/CIP1 protein levels were examined in a series of 102 ovarian tissue samples including normal ovary, primary ovarian tumors, omental metastasis, recurrent disease and residual tumor after chemotherapy exposure, by Western blot analysis.
  • The association of p21WAF1/CIP1 status with clinicopathological parameters and clinical outcome was also investigated. p21WAF1/CIP1 protein was detectable in 76 out of 102 (74%) ovarian tissue samples.
  • We observed a significant trend of p21 levels to gradually increase from normal ovarian tissues (median 0 a.u.) through primary ovarian cancers (median 0.19 a.u.
  • In the group of stage III-IV ovarian cancer patients, p21-positive cases showed a more favourable prognosis with respect to p21-negative cases: the 3-year time to progression (TTP) rate was 58% for p21-positive compared with 33% of p21-negative cases (p=0.036).
  • In conclusion, p21WAF1/CIP1 expression levels seem to be correlated with tumor status at the time of diagnosis and can predict TTP in a selected group of patients.

  • [Title] Encouraging result of tamoxifen in a retinoblastoma patient with central nervous system metastasis.
  • Extraocular retinoblastoma occurs more frequently in developing countries as a delayed diagnosis and prognosis of patients with conventional therapy is very poor.
  • Metastatic retinoblastoma, especially in the central nervous system (CNS), is a highly lethal disease.
  • Tamoxifen has been used in some previous studies with variety of responses to therapy in patients with unresectable recurrent brain tumors.
  • A 7-year-old girl with recurrent metastatic retinoblastoma received 60 mg/m2 tamoxifen in addition to chemotherapy and CNS radiotherapy.
  • The authors think that tamoxifen can be added to treatment protocols of metastatic retinoblastoma to provide longer and at least higher quality of life for these patients.

  • [Title] Postenucleation orbits in retinoblastoma: treatment with 125I brachytherapy.
  • PURPOSE: Children with retinoblastoma that extends into or through the choroid, sclera, or optic nerve are at risk of developing orbital disease, as well as metastases.
  • Previously, these enucleated orbits were treated with external beam radiotherapy in addition to chemotherapy.
  • In 1983, he developed a technique to irradiate the contents of the orbit while limiting the dose to the bony orbit and eyelids.
  • Between 1983 and 2000, 57 orbits were treated in 56 children with retinoblastoma.
  • They received a median dose of 34 Gy in 70 h; 30 also received chemotherapy.
  • Children with tumor at the resection line of the nerve also received treatment to the craniospinal axis.
  • No orbital recurrences developed in any of the patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Orbital brachytherapy is an effective method of irradiating the orbit to prevent recurrent tumor, the treatment time is short, and the cosmesis is much more acceptable than with other forms of irradiation.

  • [Title] Predictive factors of invasion in eyes with retinoblastoma enucleated after eye salvage treatments.
  • BACKGROUND: The impact of chemotherapy, focal therapies, radiation and co-existing ocular morbidities on histology of eyes with retinoblastoma enucleated following chemoreduction is not well known.
  • PROCEDURE: Twenty-five eyes (23 patients) with retinoblastoma enucleated after failing eye-salvage therapy were evaluated.
  • Twenty-four eyes had recurrent disease at enucleation; one eye was enucleated for neovascular glaucoma and vitreous hemorrhage.
  • The median time from diagnosis to enucleation was 11 months.
  • Prolonged time to enucleation was significantly associated with the likelihood of choroidal (P = 0.010) and ciliary body (P = 0.021) invasion as well as invasion of multiple sites.
  • CONCLUSION: In eyes with retinoblastoma enucleated after chemoreduction, co-existing ocular morbidities and time to enucleation are predictive of extra-retinal extension.
