  • [Title] Fungating soft-tissue sarcomas. Treatment implications and prognostic importance of malignant ulceration.
  • BACKGROUND: Several variables have been reported as being prognostic with regard to the outcomes of soft-tissue sarcomas.
  • Although the tumors are subjectively ominous, no prior study has been performed to evaluate the treatment or prognosis of fungating soft-tissue sarcomas.
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of all soft-tissue sarcomas treated at our institution between 1989 and 2004 that had been followed for a minimum of two years or until the death of the patient.
  • Our study group consisted of twenty-four patients with a primary high-grade fungating tumor, and our control group consisted of 146 consecutive patients with a primary high-grade non-fungating tumor.
  • The study cohorts were compared with regard to disease presentation, treatment, and oncologic outcomes.
  • RESULTS: There were no significant differences in tumor size, tumor depth, or histopathologic diagnoses between the cohorts, although the patients with a fungating tumor tended to be older (mean, sixty-five years compared with fifty-five years in the control group; p = 0.004) and have shorter postoperative follow-up (mean, thirty-eight months compared with sixty-five months in the control group; p = 0.03).
  • The proportion of patients presenting with metastases was significantly greater in the group with a fungating tumor (33% compared with 9% in the control group; p = 0.003).
  • Significantly more patients with a fungating tumor underwent amputation (35% compared with 12% in the control group; p = 0.01), while a greater proportion of control patients received radiation therapy (68% compared with 39% in the group with a fungating tumor; p = 0.02).
  • There was no difference in the proportions of patients receiving chemotherapy or in the local recurrence rates between the two cohorts.
  • The Kaplan-Meier five-year overall survival estimates were 20% in the group with a fungating tumor compared with 63% (p < 0.0001) in the control group.
  • The Kaplan-Meier five-year disease-specific survival estimates for patients presenting with localized disease was 58% in the group with a fungating tumor and 74% in the control group (p = 0.05).
  • Multivariate analysis demonstrated that disease stage, fungation, and a tumor size of > or = 10 cm were significant independent negative prognostic factors for disease-specific survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Malignant tumor ulceration is an independent predictor of a poor prognosis for patients with a high-grade soft-tissue sarcoma.
  • Despite the discouraging overall prognosis, aggressive multidisciplinary treatment can lead to long-term survival in an important subgroup of patients with fungating lesions.

  • Effects of rectally injected prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in rats with dextran sodium sulphate (DSS)-induced colitis were investigated in terms of histopathology, local myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, local mRNA expression of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and growth-regulated gene produced/cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant (GRO/CINC)-1, and secretion of TNF-alpha and GRO/CINC-1.
  • In animals with no PGE2 treatment, DSS-induced erosion and ulceration were particularly severe in the rectum and extended to the proximal colon.
  • As mRNA expression and secretion of cytokines in lesions of non-PGE2-treated animals was similar to that reported in human ulcerative colitis, rectal injection of PGE2 may prove to be an effective therapy.

  • [Title] Radical radiotherapy incorporating a brachytherapy boost for the treatment of carcinoma of the thoracic oesophagus: results from a cohort of patients and review of the literature.
  • The optimal treatment for potentially curable carcinoma of the oesophagus unsuitable for surgical resection is unresolved.
  • An intraluminal brachytherapy boost (ILBT) can be used following external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) with or without concurrent chemotherapy (CRT).
  • ILBT increases the dose to the tumour volume substantially while reducing the lung dose but the corresponding high dose to the oesophageal wall may cause increased complications.
  • A dose of 45-55 Gy in 20-25 fractions with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) followed by an ILBT boost.
  • Earlier in the series a low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy technique using 125Iodine seeds delivering a dose of 20-22 Gy at 25-40 cGy/h was used.
  • This was later superseded by high dose rate (HDR) treatments delivering 8.5-10 Gy in one fraction at 1 cm from the catheter.
  • Patients of age below 76 years, of good performance status and with no other medical contraindication were considered for concurrent chemotherapy (CRT) using a planned regime of cisplatin (80 mg/m2 day 1) and 5-flurouracil (1 g/m2 days 1 to 4) in the first and last weeks of radiotherapy (13 patients).
  • The EBRT and ILBT were well tolerated but 8/13 (62%) patients had dose modifications of chemotherapy in one or both cycles due to advanced age, co-morbidity or toxicity.
  • Though symptom relief was good there were six cases of ulceration, six of stricture and two fistulae.
  • Biological equivalent for tumour response (BED Gy,10) and late radiation effects (BED Gy3) were calculated for the different radiotherapy regimens using equations derived from the linear quadratic model.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The present study addresses the question whether an extended ilioinguinal dissection as compared to an only superficial inguinal dissection improves survival and/or local tumour control after the appearance of palpable melanoma metastases to the groin.
  • Tumour infiltration of the ilio-obturator compartment was found to be an independent factor of poor prognosis (p = 0.0009).
  • The extent of surgery, Breslow thickness, epidermal ulceration, sex, age and adjuvant chemotherapy neither significantly influenced survival nor local control rates.
  • After therapeutic groin dissection, local recurrence and survival depend rather on regional tumour burden than on the extent of surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Immunomodulatory effects of Semecarpus anacardium LINN. nut milk extract (SA) were investigated in adjuvant induced arthritis by studying the alterations in humoral and cell mediated immune responses and also the anti-inflammatory effects by evaluating the changes in paw edema, tumour necrosis factor (TNF-alpha), nitric oxide and myeloperoxidase activities.
  • Pharmacological studies were also conducted with SA and indomethacin on experimental animals for evaluating the anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic and ulcerogenic activities.
  • The alterations in the humoral and cell mediated immunity were significantly reverted back to near normal levels on treatment with SA.
  • The drug significantly reduced the elevation in the paw edema, TNF-alpha, nitric oxide and myeloperoxidase levels when compared with adjuvant induced arthritic animals, which shows the anti-inflammatory activity of the drug.
  • The drug also elicited antipyretic action in yeast-induced hyperemia in rats.
  • In addition, the extract did not produce any ulceration on gastric mucosa during ulcerogenic test and did not produce any serious adverse effects.
  • All these effects are nearly similar to the activities of indomethacin except the ulceration where indomethacin produced significant ulceration.
  • From this study, the protective immunological and pharmacological role of SA is demonstrated.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report a case of situs inversus totalis with malignant lymphoma of the stomach, which was successfully treated by surgery followed by chemotherapy and irradiation.
  • Chest X-ray showed a right-sided heart, and ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed a situs inversus totalis with multiple gallstones in the gallbladder.
  • Tree-dimensional reconstructed CT of the abdomen showed no other malformations coexisting with situs inversus totalis, but a barium upper gastrointestinal series found an inverted stomach and an elevated tumor with ulceration in the center, localized in the antrum of the stomach.
  • Histopathological examination confirmed a diagnosis of malignant lymphoma of the stomach (diffuse large B-cell type) with metastasis to the regional lymph nodes.
  • Chemotherapy using the CHOP regimen was given three times, starting 1 month postoperatively.
  • At the time of writing, 10 months after surgery, the patient is well with no signs of recurrence and leading a normal life.
  • Careful preoperative assessment is very important for determining the most appropriate surgical procedure in patients with situs inversus totalis associated with a malignancy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Preoperative radiotherapy with (CRT) or without chemotherapy (RT) in the management of patients with locally advanced rectal carcinoma is increasingly accepted as therapeutic modality to reduce local recurrence and improve survival, decrease tumor size and/or stage, has less toxicity compared to postoperative therapy, improves sphincter preservation and the ability to perform a curative resection.
  • At present, predictive value of tumor response to neoadjuvant therapy remains uncertain, whether evaluated as five-point histological tumor regression grade (TRG) or recently proposed three-point rectal cancer regression grade (RCRG).
  • However, most reports emphasize reduced local reccurence rates and disease-free survival advantage in patients with complete tumour regression or tumour down-staging, occuring in up to 20% and 60% of cases, respectively.
  • Patients with advanced post-treatment tumour stage (ypT3/4), positive lymph nodes (ypN1/2), vascular invasion, positive circumferential resection margin, clearance < 2mm, or absence of tumor regression are shown to have poor clinical outcome.
  • Among CRT-induced morphological features, only "fibrotic-type" stromal response with minimal inflammatory infiltrates and absence of surface ulceration are correlated to recurrence-free survival.
  • In addition, 14 patients (63%) showed tumour downstaging and only 1 patient (4.5%) nodal down-staging after ypTNM restaging.
  • There was the predominance of fibrotic-type stroma (16 patients, 72.8%) versus fibro-inflammatory response (6 patients, 27.2%), frequent tumoral necrosis (13 patients, 59%) but infrequent surface ulceration (5 patients, 22.7%) and peritumoural eosinophylic infiltration as well as endocrine cell differentiation (4 patients, 18%).
  • The second aim of our study was to investigate determinants of radiosensitivity, i.e. the relationship between proliferative activity indices (Ki-67 and PCNA) as well as the induction of apoptosis (p53) and the tumour regression (RCRG) after neoadjuvant CRT.

  • Ameloblastic carcinoma (AC) is a rare aggressive malignant epithelial odontogenic tumor of the maxillofacial skeleton with a distinct predilection in the mandible.
  • It may appear de novo or originate from a pre-existing ameloblastoma or odontogenic cyst.
  • It may present as a cystic lesion with benign clinical features or as a large tissue mass with ulceration, significant bone resorption and tooth mobility.
  • Direct extension of the tumour, lymph node involvement and metastasis to various sites has been reported.
  • Wide local excision is the treatment of choice.
  • Radiotherapy and chemotherapy have limited role in the treatment of ameloblastic carcinomas.

  • The tumour was examined morphologically, by immunohistochemistry and molecular biology methods - FASAY and CGH.
  • The histology revealed a storiform-pleomorphic type of MFH with high mitotic rate.
  • The chromosomal changes were identified by the CGH method and 6 cytogenetic changes were found in the tumour cells (deletions at 8p12-p22, 13q32-qter, 14q24-qter, and gains of chromosomal material at 5p, 8q12-q23, and Xq25-qter).
  • The patient died shortly after the beginning of chemotherapy.
  • No other tumour foci were proved.

  • INTRODUCTION: Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) is emerging as a new therapeutic modality in recent years for management of non-resectable hepatic malignancies.
  • Our experience in clinical application of this treatment is reported here.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: From June 2004, patients whose liver tumours were no longer amenable for any conventional treatment with either chemotherapy or surgery were considered for yttrium-90 microspheres treatment after discussion at our multidisciplinary meeting.
  • A pre-treatment planning was carried out with visceral angiography and technetium-99m macroaggregated albumin (MAA) for assessment of both tumour volume and extrahepatic shunting in addition to a baseline PET and CT scans, respectively.
  • Two weeks later, a second visceral angiogram was performed to deliver the calculated dosage of microspheres into the arterial system supplying the tumour.
  • Patients were then followed up with tumour markers, repeat PET and CT scans of abdomen at 6 weeks and 3 monthly thereafter.
  • One patient received 2 treatments.
  • The mean pre-treatment SUV was 12.2+/-3.7 and the mean post-treatment SUV was 9.3+/-3.7, indicating a significant improvement measured with PET activity.
  • Only 13% showed a reduction in the size of tumour on CT scan.
  • Complications were seen in 4 patients (19%) including radiation hepatitis (n=2), cholecystitis (n=1) and duodenal ulceration (n=1).

  • [Title] Limb salvage in extensive diabetic foot ulceration: an extended study using a herbal supplement.
  • OBJECTIVE: To further study the clinical value of a herbal supplement in the treatment of chronic foot ulcers in diabetic patients.
  • INTERVENTIONS: Clinical measures included standard antidiabetic treatment, daily wound care including antiseptic bath, debridement, toe removal for gangrene when necessary, and the daily consumption of a herbal drink or placebo.
  • Secondary outcomes included: granulation maturation, local temperature and circulatory changes, tumour necrosis factor-alpha levels, and adverse events.
  • Among the early failures, three each came from the treatment and placebo groups.
  • After shifting to herbal treatment (without unblinding of the original treatment), all were rescued in those initially assigned to herbal concoction (6 out of 6) while only 50% (6 out of 12) were rescued from among those initially assigned to placebo.
  • The speed of granulation maturation, and decline in tumour necrosis factor-alpha levels indicating control of inflammation, were also more favourable with the herbal group.
  • CONCLUSION: The herbal adjuvant therapy was effective in helping the healing of chronic diabetic ulcers.

  • 5-Aminolaevulinic-acid (ALA) can be used as an alternative drug in photodynamic therapy of the bladder, since the selective formation of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) in the tumour and the virtual absence of induced skin photosensitivity are theoretically advantageous for clinical use.
  • A preclinical study was performed, using an in vivo normal piglet bladder model, in order to determine the maximum drug and light doses for reversible tissue damage.
  • Bladder biopsies were taken at regular intervals and tissue damage was investigated histologically.
  • After oral ALA-administration the PpIX concentration was determined in plasma, erythrocytes and various tissues.
  • For an oral ALA dose of up to 150 mg/kg, the maximum PpIX concentration is reached at approximately 5 h following administration and in neither skin nor bladder tissue is PpIX present at 10-11 h after administration.
  • This ALA dose combined with a radiant exposure of 200 J/cm(2) produces irreversible bladder damage (extensive necrosis and ulceration).
  • In the case of intravesical instillation for 4-4.75 h, an ALA dose of 2.5 g in 50 ml phosphate buffered saline and a radiant exposure of 100 J/cm(2) are still too high to obtain reversible tissue damage; at this dose one of the 13 pigs developed a shrunken bladder with a fibrotic, thickened bladder wall.
  • These drug and light combinations reported above should be regarded as upper limits in pigs and can serve as an indication for the toxicity of the treatment in a clinical setting.

  • [Title] Her2/neu is not a commonly expressed therapeutic target in melanoma -- a large cohort tissue microarray study.
  • Melanoma is among the most chemotherapy-resistant malignancies.
  • Numerous new agents have been developed that target specific molecules on cancer cells, including the monoclonal antibody trastuzumab, which targets Her2/neu and has been very beneficial in the treatment of breast cancer.
  • We therefore examined Her2/neu expression in a very large cohort of melanoma specimens in order to determine the value of exploring trastuzumab therapy for melanoma patients.
  • Immunohistochemical staining was performed on two tissue microarrays, together containing 600 intact specimens.
  • Expression was evaluated semi-quantitatively and correlated with tumour stage and other clinicopathological data.
  • Among the primary lesions there was no significant correlation between Her2/neu expression, Clark level and ulceration; however, Her2/neu expression was associated with lesions with a Breslow depth of < 2 mm (P=0.05).
  • Our findings suggest that drugs that specifically target Her2/neu are not likely to be useful for the treatment of metastatic melanoma or as adjuvant therapy for melanoma patients at high risk for recurrence.

  • Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma (CMM) is the most malignant skin tumour in humans, the incidence of which is rising rapidly in most fair-skinned populations, without apparent decline in mortality.
  • CMM arises from melanocytes in the epidermis, and proceeds through discrete steps of tumor-progression that consist histologically of the radial growth phase (RGP), vertical growth phase (VGP) and metastatic phase.
  • The prognosis of patients with VGP melanoma depends on several clinical and histological parameters; the latter include thickness, mitotic activity, presence or absence of ulceration and regression, and pattern of lymphocytic host response.
  • To obtain insight in the molecular mechanisms of tumor progression in CMM, and in search of new prognostic markers, we performed global gene-expression profiling using 44K oligonucleotide micro-arrays on a unique retrospective series of 83 frozen primary MM with VGP, 9 metastases and 23 benign nevi.
  • This signature was validated on a separate series of melanoma patients, and proved to have a predictive accuracy comparable to what can be obtained by tumour thickness and ulceration.
  • CMM is notorious for its resistance to chemotherapy, and disseminated CMM is a uniformly fatal disease.
  • As several of the progression-related genes, encode molecules that have been the target of established or xperimental cancer therapies, our results may hopefully contribute to the treatment of end-stage CMM-patients.

  • Colonoscopy showed a stenosing rectal tumour at 7 cm to 8 cm from the anal verge.
  • Gastroscopy showed multiple nodules with ulceration over several areas of the stomach which were similar in appearance to the colonic lesions.
  • However, no primary tumour of the stomach was seen.
  • Computed tomography scan of the abdomen and pelvis revealed circumferential tumour at the rectosigmoid junction with possible invasion into the left ischiorectal fossa.
  • The patient was referred for palliative chemotherapy in view of the disseminated disease.
  • In the present report, we discuss this interesting pathological entity and review the role of various histolological techniques in helping to identify the primary tumor.

  • We report a patient who long had a complete response by chemotherapy with imatinib mesilate(IM)for locally recurrent gastrointestinal stromal tumor(GIST)of the stomach.
  • Endoscopic examination revealed continuous bleeding from a submucosal tumor with ulceration on the posterior wall of the stomach.
  • After diagnosis, total gastrectomy, distal pancreatectomy, and splenectomy were performed.
  • On September 2003, a local recurrence was recognized, and then chemotherapy by 400 mg IM daily was started.
  • After beginning with a dose of IM 400 mg daily, the reduction of the tumor was monitored.
  • After reduction of IM, the adverse reactions resolved promptly, and a complete response of the primary tumor has been maintained for 4 years 3 months.

  • Malignant melanoma is a life-threatening skin cancer due to its highly metastatic character and resistance to radio- and chemotherapy.
  • However, the exact mechanism for failure in the apoptotic pathway in melanoma cells is unclear. p53, the most frequently mutated tumour suppressor gene in human cancers, is a key apoptosis inducer.
  • To determine if loss of Apaf-1 expression is indeed involved in melanoma progression, we employed the tissue microarray technology and examined Apaf-1 expression in 70 human primary malignant melanoma biopsies by immunohistochemistry.
  • Our results also revealed that loss of Apaf-1 was not associated with the tumour thickness, ulceration or subtype, patient's gender, age and 5-year survival.
  • In addition, our in vitro apoptosis assay revealed that overexpression of Apaf-1 can sensitise melanoma cells to anticancer drug treatment.
  • Taken together, our data indicate that Apaf-1 expression is significantly reduced in human melanoma and that Apaf-1 may serve as a therapeutic target in melanoma.

  • METHODS: For 924 consecutive skin lesion excisions performed by a single surgeon, information was collected on tumour size and site, closure method and on risk factors of age, known diabetes, use of steroids, antihypertensives or anticoagulants and ulceration of the lesion.
  • Ulceration (odds ratio (OR) 3.15, P= 0.008) and use of antihypertensives (OR 2.5, P= 0.006) were independent risk factors for infection along with site and closure method.
  • CONCLUSION: Ulceration of the skin lesion and use of antihypertensives are significant risk factors for wound infection.

  • The prescribed dose was 40 Gy delivered in 20 fractions once daily using 6 MV photons.
  • The median age at the time of SRT was 18 months.
  • Four patients were treated for a posterior pole focal tumour by focal SRT, and one patient was treated for vitreous seeding with whole-eye SRT.
  • In patients treated with focal SRT, the median doses to the tumour, optic chiasm and brainstem were 41.92, 0.25 and 0.07 Gy, respectively, and to the ipsilateral optic nerve, globe and lens were 9.98, 19.11 and 3.74 Gy, respectively.
  • The median doses to the ipsilateral and contralateral orbital bone were 6.73 Gy (range 5.99-8.29 Gy) and 2.31 Gy (range 0.88-7.08 Gy), respectively.
  • A complete response (residual inactive scar tissue) was seen in four of the five focal tumours treated, with one tumour responding with a partial response (suspicious residual scar tissue).
  • Only the patient treated with whole-eye SRT developed late effects of cataract and corneal ulceration.
  • Control of this recurrence was successful using chemotherapy and focal therapy.
  • CONCLUSION: Vision-sparing focal SRT for localised tumour masses in critical locations can control tumours with minimal side-effects and a minimal dose to the surrounding critical normal tissue.
