Regorafenib has been demonstrated as effective in refractory metastatic colorectal cancer. Combination use with chemotherapy has not been reported. We examined the efficacy and safety of adding chemotherapy to Regorafenib for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer(mCRC) patients.
Recently, a prognostic index including six risk factors (RFs) (unfavourable ECOG performance status [PS], presence of liver metastases, short response to luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone [LHRH] agonists/antagonists, low albumin, increased alkaline phosphatase [ALP] and lactate dehydrogenase [LDH]) was developed from the COU-AA-301 trial in post-chemotherapy metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients treated with abiraterone acetate. Our primary objective was to evaluate this model...
This report describes highlights the dramatic responses seen in patients who were given paclitaxel post progression on immunotherapy. There are multiple mechanisms by which synergistic effects of immunotherapy and chemotherapy occur. Further prospective studies on chemotherapy and immunotherapy are eagerly awaited.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a common and lethal disease with a high therapeutic need. For most patients with metastatic CRC, chemotherapy is the only viable option. Currently, immunotherapy is restricted to the particular genetic subgroup of mismatch-repair deficient (MMRd)/microsatellite instable (MSI) CRC. Anti-PD1 therapy was recently FDA-approved as a second-line treatment in this subgroup. However, in a metastatic setting, these MMRd/MSI tumors are vastly outnumbered by mismatch-repair proficient (MMRp)...
For hormone receptor-positive (HR+) human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2-) negative metastatic breast cancer (MBC), international guidelines recommend endocrine therapy as first-line treatment, except in case of 'visceral crisis'. In the latter case, chemotherapy is preferred. Few studies have compared these two strategies. We used the Epidemiological Strategy and Medical Economics (ESME) programme, UNICANCER, a large national observational database (NCT03275311), to address this question.
Tumors often overcome the cytotoxic effects of chemotherapy through either acquired or environment-mediated drug resistance. In addition, signals from the microenvironment obfuscate the beneficial effects of chemotherapy and may facilitate progression and metastatic dissemination. Seminal mediators in chemotherapy-induced metastasis appear to be a wide range of hematopoietic, mesenchymal and immune progenitor cells, originating from the bone marrow. The actual purpose of these cells is to orchestrate the re...
The treatment of metastatic urothelial carcinoma is characterized by the administration of combinatory regimes of chemotherapy. In the first-line treatment theses regimes demonstrate relatively good objective response rates and prolongation of overall survival. The prognosis declines if the patient is refractory to platin in the second- or third-line treatment or if the patient is ineligible for cisplatin in the first-line setting. Cisplatin ineligibility is defined by a poor renal function or subsequent co...
Thrombocytopenia, a serious complication of myelosuppressive chemotherapy in cancer patients, is managed with platelet transfusions until recovery of platelet counts. However, children receiving chemotherapy can rarely develop immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) that is refractory to transfused platelets. This limits the ability to achieve adequate platelet counts and administer further myelosuppressive chemotherapy safely, especially if first-line ITP therapy is ineffective. We report 2 cases of intravenous immu...
Apalutamide (Erleada) is a next-generation oral androgen receptor (AR) inhibitor that is being developed by Janssen for the treatment of prostate cancer (PC). It binds directly to the ligand-binding domain of the AR and blocks the effects of androgens. In February 2018, apalutamide received its first global approval in the USA for the treatment of non-metastatic castration-resistant PC (nmCRPC). Apalutamide is undergoing phase III investigation in chemotherapy-naive patients with metastatic CRPC (in combina...
Malignant melanoma, one of the most aggressive of all skin cancers, is increasing in incidence throughout the world. Surgery remains the cornerstone of curative treatment in earlier stages. Metastatic disease is incurable in most affected people, because melanoma does not respond to most systemic treatments. A number of novel approaches are under evaluation and have shown promising results, but they are usually associated with increased toxicity and cost. The combination of chemotherapy and immunotherapy ha...
Metastatic colorectal cancer frequently occurs in elderly patients. Bevacizumab in combination with front line chemotherapy is a standard treatment but some concern raised about tolerance of bevacizumab for these patients. The purpose of PRODIGE 20 was to evaluate tolerance and efficacy of bevacizumab according to specific endpoints in this population.
While PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors have shown some efficacy in treating advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), their benefits are limited to only a subset of patients. Advanced NSCLC is generally treated with a chemotherapy and immunotherapy series. Here we evaluated whether PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors affect the anti-tumor effects of salvage chemotherapy administered after immunotherapy (SCAI) in patients with NSCLC.
Patients with metastatic or recurrent esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) have a poor prognosis. For decades, the most widely used first-line chemotherapy regimen for these patients has been the combination of 5-fluorouracil + cisplatin (CF). However, prognostic factors of CF as first-line chemotherapy for ESCC have not been clarified.
To assess the cost-effectiveness of chemohormonal therapy in patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive and non-metastatic high-risk prostate cancer.
We evaluated the changes in CTC count and CTC-associated miRNAs during the course of chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Blood samples were collected from 9 metastatic colorectal cancer patients prior to chemotherapy and at every other chemotherapy session during the course of treatment. CTCs were isolated and enumerated using a size-exclusion method (CellSievo, Singapore). CTC-associated miRNAs were isolated using a paper-based, partitioning method, and analyzed using reverse transc...
Immunotherapy-induced vitiligo is an immune-related adverse event (irAE) observed in metastatic melanoma patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors that target the cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4) and programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) pathways. To date, the development of leukoderma, poliosis, and halo nevi during immunotherapy has largely been reported in metastatic melanoma patients. We report a case of immunotherapy-induced leukoderma presenting as halo nevi in a patient with non...
This study assessed the prognostic value of pre-treatment neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with metastatic solid tumors. Clinical and biological data for patients with metastatic solid tumors treated in an oncology outpatient department and prospectively followed by a call center (PROCHE program) between January 2008 and December 2011 were analyzed. All patients with an NLR value within 28 days before the first cycle of first-line of chemotherapy were included (cohort 1). To assess influence...
Immunotherapy has changed treatment practices for many haematological malignancies. Despite the current era of targeted therapy, chemotherapy remains the backbone of treatment for many haematological malignancies, especially in acute leukaemia, where relapse remains the major cause of mortality. Application of novel immunotherapies in haematology attempts to harness the killing power of the immune system against leukaemia and lymphoma. Cellular immunotherapy is evolving rapidly for high risk haematological ...
Despite remarkable results with salvage standard-dose or high-dose chemotherapy about 15% of patients with relapsed germ-cell tumors (GCT) are incurable. Immune checkpoint inhibitors have produced significant remission in multiple tumor types. We report the first study of immunotherapy in patients with GCT.
Febrile infections are an important cause of paediatric refractory status epilepticus, and immune-mediated mechanisms and inflammatory processes have been associated with neurological manifestations in such patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of immunotherapy as adjuvant treatment for febrile refractory status epilepticus.
Androgen deprivation therapy remains the principal treatment for patients with advanced prostate cancer, though, most patients will eventually develop hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC). Androgen ablation mediated maspin-induction has been identified in cancer patients. However, the role of maspin on the anticancer activity of curcumin derived from turmeric (Curcuma longa) in HRPC cells has not been elucidated.
To review the treatment options in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) in the light of new immunotherapy results.
The FIRE-3 trial investigated combination chemotherapy plus either cetuximab or bevacizumab in patients with untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) not scheduled for upfront surgery. We aimed to determine the number of patients who present with potentially resectable disease during systemic first-line therapy and to compare the findings with study reports concerning resections and outcome.
Abemaciclib (Verzenio™) is an orally administered inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases 4 and 6 that is being developed by Eli Lilly and Company. Abemaciclib has been approved in the USA for the treatment of hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative advanced or metastatic breast cancer, in combination with fulvestrant in women with disease progression following endocrine therapy, and as monotherapy in adult patients with disease progression following endocrin...
Older patients have frailty characteristics that impair the transposition of treatment results found in younger patients. Predictive factors are needed to help with treatment choices for older patients. The PRODIGE 20 study is a randomized phase II study that evaluated chemotherapy associated with bevacizumab (BEV) or not (CT) in patients aged 75 years or older.
