Toxicity, Tolerability, and Compliance of Concurrent Capecitabine or 5-Fluorouracil in Radical Management of Anal Cancer With Single-dose Mitomycin-C and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: Evaluation of a National Cohort.
Chemoradiation therapy (CRT) with mitomycin C (MMC) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is established as the standard of care for the radical treatment of patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC). The use of the oral fluoropyrimidine-derivative capecitabine is emerging as an alternative to 5-FU despite limited evidence of its tolerability and toxicity.
Anal cancer is a rare malignancy for which cisplatin with 5-fluorouracil is the recommended treatment for patients with metastatic disease. Because most cases of anal cancer are linked to prior infection with oncogenic strands of the human papillomavirus, immunotherapeutic approaches have been of great interest in the development of new treatments for this virally driven tumor. This article reviews the early successes of anti-PD-1 therapies and adoptive T-cell therapies for metastatic anal cancer as a poten...
The purpose of this study was to identify adverse prognostic factors for patients with advanced esophageal cancer undergoing chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (DCF).
The signaling pathway driven by p38 and MAPKAPK2 alias MK2 is activated as part of stress responses, and these kinases represent attractive drug targets for cancer therapy. However, seemingly conflicting results were obtained when assessing the role of MK2 in chemotherapy. MK2 inhibitors were reported to either enhance or diminish the chemosensitivity of cancer cells. Here we show that this strongly depends on the particular chemotherapeutic drug. Two different MK2 inhibitors increased the proliferating fra...
To investigate whether irradiated volume of pelvic active bone marrow (BM) may predict decreased blood cells nadirs in anal cancer patients undergoing concurrent chemo-radiation.
Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has been used to limit treatment-related toxicity for patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The treatment outcomes and HPV characteristics for a cohort of patients receiving definitive concurrent chemotherapy and IMRT are reported.
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin (FP) has been administered to patients with clinical stage II or III esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We aimed to confirm the clinical efficacy and outcomes of NAC with FP.
The NCCN Guidelines for Anal Carcinoma provide recommendations for the management of patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal or perianal region. Primary treatment of anal cancer usually includes chemoradiation, although certain lesions can be treated with margin-negative local excision alone. Disease surveillance is recommended for all patients with anal carcinoma because additional curative-intent treatment is possible. A multidisciplinary approach including physicians from gastroenterology...
The modern treatment of locoregionally advanced disease often requires a multimodality combination approach. A number of chemotherapeutic agents can be combined with radiation, but the platinum agent cisplatin, a potent radiation sensitizer, is best studied in head and neck cancer. Newer agents such as cetuximab can be used in combination with radiation therapy for those patients who cannot tolerate cisplatin. For chemotherapy-naïve patients with metastatic head and neck cancer who demonstrate a good perfo...
Appendiceal cancer is a rare disease, which has proven difficult to study in prospective trials. Cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC is an established therapy for peritoneal dissemination from appendiceal cancer. The optimal chemotherapeutic agent to use in the HIPEC is not clear. Mitomycin has long been the utilized, however our previous phase I experience, and European retrospective studies suggest oxaliplatin as an alternative. Therefore, we initiated a multicenter randomized trial to compare mitomycin to o...
The combination of oxaliplatin, leucovorin and fluorouracil (FOLFOX) has been established as postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer. However, the safety and efficacy of neoadjuvant FOLFOX in patients with rectal cancer are still controversial. This prospective pilot study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of neoadjuvant FOLFOX therapy without radiation for baseline resectable rectal cancer (RC).
We examined SSc patients with breast cancer to 1) identify the prevalence of radiation complications and 2) examine SSc outcomes in SSc patients who received radiation therapy (RT) as part of their cancer treatment.

Literature regarding image-guidance and interfractional motion of the anal canal (AC) during anal cancer radiotherapy is sparse. This study investigates interfractional AC motion during anal cancer radiotherapy.
The histoculture drug response assay (HDRA) with tumors histocultured on Gelfoamwas tested for clinical correlation for advanced gastric and colorectal cancer patients. In one study, 29 patients were treated with drugs shown to be ineffective in the HDRA, and all 29 cases showed clinical chemoresistance. In nine patients treated with drugs shown to be effective in the HDRA, six showed clinical chemoresponse and three showed arrest of disease progression. In a study of 32 patients with stage III and IV gastr...
In HIV-patients, routine proctological assessment is warranted due to the high incidence of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection-related anogenital lesions, such as Condylomata acuminata (C. ac.), anal intraepithelial dysplasia (AIN) and anal cancer. For C. ac. and AIN, surgical resection and topical therapy with imiquimod have been discussed as treatment options.
Anal cytology may be useful for evaluating lesions associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) in individuals at increased risk for anal cancer.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a very aggressive form of lung cancer. SCLC treatment requires multidisciplinary management and timely treatment. Radiation therapy is an important part of management of all stages of SCLC, in the curative as well as in the palliative setting. The role of radiation therapy in all stages of SCLC has changed in recent years; this article describes these changes and highlights the role of radiation therapy in the management of SCLC.
To revise the recommendation on the use of concurrent chemotherapy (CC) with palliative thoracic external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) made in the original 2011 American Society for Radiation Oncology guideline on palliative thoracic radiation for lung cancer.
The Cancer and Leukemia Group B 9,343 demonstrated that postoperative radiation can be safely omitted in women ≥70 years who underwent breast-conserving therapy for clinical stage I (T1N0M0) estrogen receptor positive breast cancer treated with antihormonal therapy. Whether such results are observed in real-world population is unknown. In this hospital-based data, we report the survival outcomes of patients who received adjuvant radiation therapy versus those who did not.
Although the benefit of chemoradiation over radiation therapy alone has been shown in randomized trials for stage II to III squamous cell of the anus, this benefit is not clear for patients with stage I cancer. Nevertheless, most societal recommendations endorse chemoradiation for patients with stage I squamous cell carcinoma of the anus despite the lack of proven benefit and potential increase in toxicity.
Ovarian cancer is the most frequent cause of death resulting from malignant gynecological tumors. After surgical intervention, cisplatin (DDP) is a major chemotherapy drug for ovarian cancer, but the ovarian cancer cells tend to develop DDP resistance in the clinical setting. Tumor cells are sensitive to low-dose radiation (LDR). However, how the LDR therapy improves the effects of chemotherapy drugs on ovarian cancer is not well understood. This study aimed to explore this issue.
Cancer-related fatigue is a common complaint during cancer treatment and is often associated with cognitive impairment. This study examined cognitive deficits that were associated with fatigue symptoms during external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in men with localized prostate cancer.
Approximately half of all human cancers contain mutations in the TP53 tumor suppressor. In addition to mutations, there are single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in TP53 that can dampen p53 function, and can increase cancer risk and decrease the efficacy of cancer therapy. Approximately 6% of Africans and 1% of African-Americans express a p53 allele with a serine instead of proline at position 47 (Pro47Ser, or S47). The S47 variant is associated with increased breast cancer risk in pre-menopausal African A...
Chemoradiotherapy remains the first line treatment for anal cancer with surgery reserved for cancer recurrence or persistence. The low incidence of anal cancer means the numbers undergoing surgery is small with centralization for excision to regional cancer centres. We present our experience of abdominal perineal excision, with reconstruction of the perineal defect (APERR), within a tertiary centre.
