Risk factors for abnormal anal cytology in young heterosexual women. (1/430)

Although anal cancers are up to four times more common in women than men, little is known about the natural history of anal human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and HPV-related anal lesions in women. This study reports on the prevalence of and risks for anal cytological abnormalities over a 1-year period in a cohort of young women participating in a study of the natural history of cervical HPV infection. In addition to their regularly scheduled sexual behavior interviews and cervical testing, consenting women received anal HPV DNA and cytological testing. Anal cytology smears were obtained from 410 women whose mean age was 22.5 +/- 2.5 years at the onset of the study. Sixteen women (3.9%) were found to have abnormal anal cytology: 4 women had low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs) or condyloma; and 12 women had atypical cells of undetermined significance. Factors found to be significantly associated with abnormal anal cytology were a history of anal sex [odds ratio (OR), 6.90; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.7-47.2], a history of cervical SILs (OR, 4.13; 95% CI, 1.3-14.9), and a current anal HPV infection (OR, 12.28; 95% CI, 3.9-43.5). The strong association between anal intercourse and the development of HPV-induced SILs supports the role of sexual transmission of HPV in anal SILs. Young women who had engaged in anal intercourse or had a history of cervical SILs were found to be at highest risk.  (+info)

CYP2D6 genotype and the incidence of anal and vulvar cancer. (2/430)

The risks of anal and vulvar cancer are strongly related to cigarette smoking. Smokers are exposed to a substantial quantity of tobacco-specific nitrosamines, including 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK). NNK is present in the mucus of the female genital tract. The enzyme debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase (CYP2D6) activates NNK and is present in foreskin kerotinocytes and cervical epithelial cells. A polymorphism for the gene CYP2D6 exists, and persons who possess alleles that are associated with reduced levels of CYP2D6 activity might be expected to be at a relatively lower risk of cancers arising from NNK exposure. To test this hypothesis, we conducted a case-control study to examine the association of CYP2D6 genotype and the incidence of anal and vulvar cancer among cigarette smokers in western Washington State. We tested for 14 alleles (*1-*12, *14, and *17) among cases (25 men and 43 women with anal cancer, 64 women with vulvar cancer) and controls (30 men and 110 women). Contrary to the hypothesis, cases were not less likely than controls to have one (43.9 versus 40.7%) or two (6.8 versus 4.3%) inactivating alleles (*3, *4, *5, *6, *7, *8, *11, or *12). There was a suggestion that, if anything, the combined anal and vulvar cancer risk increased (rather than decreased) with an increasing number of CYP2D6 inactivation alleles: odds ratio = 1.2, 95% confidence interval = 0.7-2.0 with one inactivating allele; odds ratio = 1.8, 95% confidence interval = 0.6-5.4 with two inactivating alleles. These results provide no support for the hypothesis that cigarette smokers who carry the CYP2D6 alleles that result in a low activity phenotype have a decreased risk of anogenital cancer.  (+info)

Tobacco smoking as a risk factor in anal carcinoma: an antiestrogenic mechanism? (3/430)

BACKGROUND: Human papillomavirus-associated anogenital carcinogenesis depends on poorly defined cofactors. Smoking was recently suggested to increase the risk of anal cancer more in premenopausal women than in postmenopausal women. Thus, we used our population-based anal cancer case-control study in Denmark and Sweden to test this hypothesis. METHODS: Our study included 417 patients (324 women and 93 men) who were diagnosed with anal cancer (84% invasive cancer) from 1991 through 1994; it also included five patients diagnosed in 1995. Two control groups were used: 1) 554 population control subjects (349 women and 205 men) and 2) 534 patients with rectal adenocarcinoma (343 women and 191 men). Odds ratios (ORs), calculated from logistic regression analyses, were used as measures of relative risk. All P values are two-sided. RESULTS: Compared with the risk for lifelong nonsmokers, the risk of anal cancer was high among premenopausal women who currently smoked tobacco (multivariate OR = 5.6; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 2.4-12.7) and increased linearly by 6.7% per pack-year smoked (one pack-year is equivalent to one pack of cigarettes smoked per day for 1 year) (P for trend <.001). Smoking was not statistically significantly associated with anal cancer risk in postmenopausal women or men. Women whose menstrual periods started late were at high risk (multivariate OR = 3.6; 95% CI = 1.8-7.3, for > or = 17 years of age versus < or = 12 years of age; P for trend <.001), and body mass index (weight in kg/[height in m]2) was inversely associated with risk among women (P<.001). CONCLUSIONS: Because the risk of anal cancer associated with smoking was restricted to premenopausal women and because higher risk was associated with late menarche and lean body composition, female sex hormones may be a factor in anal cancer development in women. Since the anal mucosa is an estrogen-sensitive area, we hypothesize an antiestrogenic mechanism of action for smoking in anal carcinogenesis.  (+info)

Assessment of long-term quality of life in patients with anal carcinomas treated by radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy. (4/430)

This study was conducted to assess long-term Quality of Life (QOL) in patients treated by radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy for anal carcinomas. Patients with a maximum age of 80 years, and who were alive at least 3 years following completion of treatment with a functioning anal sphincter and without active disease, were selected for this study. Of 52 such patients identified, 41 (79%) were evaluable. There were 35 females and six males with a median age of 71 years (55-80). The median follow-up interval was 116 months (range 37-218). QOL was assessed using two self-rating questionnaires developed by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer: one for cancer-specific QOL (EORTC QLQ-C30) and one for site-specific QOL (EORTC QLQ-CR38). For the function scales a higher score represents a higher level of functioning (100 being the best score), whereas for the symptom scales a higher score indicates a higher level of symptomatology/problems (0 being the best score). For the QLQ-C30, the functional scale scores ranged from 71 (global quality of life) to 85 (role function) and the symptom scale scores from 6 (nausea-vomiting) to 28 (diarrhoea). For the QLQ-CR38 module the functional scale scores ranged from 13 (sexual functioning) to 74 (body image) and for the symptom scale scores from 5 (weight loss) to 66 (sexual dysfunction in males). None of the functional and symptom scale scores seemed to be better in patients with longer follow-up. In patients treated with sphincter conservation for anal carcinomas, long-term QOL as measured by the EORTC QLQ-C30 and QLQ-CR38 appears to be acceptable, with the exception of diarrhoea and perhaps sexual function. Moreover, the subset of patients who presented with severe complications and/or anal dysfunction showed poorer scores in most scales.  (+info)

A study of anal intraepithelial neoplasia in HIV positive homosexual men. (5/430)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence of high grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN), the value of anal cytology in screening for HGAIN, and the characterisation of epidemiological factors and human papillomavirus (HPV) types. METHODS: Prospective cohort study of HIV positive homosexual men. Subjects were interviewed, underwent STD, anal cytological, and HPV screening at enrolment and at subsequent follow up visits with anoscopy and biopsy at the final visit. 57 enrolled, average CD4 count 273 x 10(6)/l (10-588); 41 completed the cytological surveillance over the follow up period (181 visits, average follow up 17 months), 38 of these had anoscopy and anal biopsy. RESULTS: Oncogenic HPV types were detected in 84% and high grade dyskaryosis in 10.5% (6/57) at enrollment. There was a 70% incidence of high grade dyskaryosis during follow up in patients with negative/warty or low grade dyskaryosis at enrollment. Anoscopy correlated with histology in high grade AIN lesions (sensitivity 91%, specificity 54%) and cytology was 78% sensitive (18/23) for HGAIN on biopsy. CONCLUSIONS: AIN and infection with multiple oncogenic HPV types are very common among immunosuppressed HIV positive homosexual men. Apparent progression from low to high grade cytological changes occurred over a short follow up period, with no cases of carcinoma. All 23 cases of HGAIN were predicted by cytology and/or anoscopy. Future studies focusing on the risk of progression to carcinoma are needed before applying anal cytology as a screening tool for AIN in this population.  (+info)

Clinical correlation of hepatic flow studies. (6/430)

In 100 consecutive hepatic flow studies, 84 were read as negative. Of these, 73 (87%) also had negative static images. Knowing the nature of the primary tumor did not definitively aid in predicting whether hepatic meastases would have detectable early flow. Five cases showed early flow without defects seen in the static images. Three of these were probably related to lymphomas or allied disorders with altered flow. Two cases were in individuals with gastric carcinoma who had abdoninal radiation. One extrahepatic tumor was detected in the series.  (+info)

Anal intraepithelial neoplasia in an inflammatory cloacogenic polyp. (7/430)

A rare case of anal intraepithelial neoplasia arising in an inflammatory cloacogenic polyp is reported. While the occurrence of neoplasia complicating benign anal conditions is recognised, this case re-emphasises the need for careful histological examination of all perianal lesions.  (+info)

Anal carcinoma in inflammatory bowel disease. (8/430)

We followed 9602 patients with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis for anal squamous cell carcinoma for up to 18 years. No significant increase was observed: two cases occurred vs 1.3 expected during 99,229 person-years of observation, (standardized incidence ratio = 1.6; 95 confidence interval: 0.2-5.7). Anal squamous cell carcinoma is rare even in inflammatory bowel disease.  (+info)

N2 - Anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC) is a rare, potentially fatal malignancy primarily caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPV). The prognostic implication of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression remains controversial, and glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) expression has never been examined in ASCC. Covalently closed circular RNAs have recently been shown to be widespread in cancers and are proposed to be biomarkers. We discovered HPV16 expresses a circular E7 RNA (circE7) which has not been assessed as a potential biomarker. A retrospective, translational case series at UT Southwestern was conducted to analyze PD-L1, GLUT1, ...
Anal Squamous Cell Carcinoma (ASCC) is an uncommon cancer with an incidence rate between 1 and 2 per 100000 per year. However, the incidence of ASCC is increasing rapidly, with up to 6.8% increase in men per year and 10.7% increase in women per year since 1971.. It is believed that the increasing numbers of HIV positive patients who are living longer on advanced antiretrovirals are likely to be contributing to the increasing burden of ASCC. Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia (AIN) is the known precursor to ASCC. It is believed that by identifying and treating high grade AIN that ASCC could become a preventable cancer. ASCC also has excellent outcomes if identified early. Only 15% of ASCC present with metastasis and most patients are diagnosed with resectable T1 tumours. However, current guidelines are conflicting and not based on good quality clinical evidence, The limiting factor to providing good quality evidence is the large samples size required to observe the relationship between AIN ...
In a French phase II trial reported in The Lancet Oncology, Kim et al found that treatment with docetaxel, cisplatin, and fluorouracil (DCF) was active in patients with metastatic or unresectable locally recurrent anal squamous cell carcinoma.. Study Details. The multicenter study included 66 evaluable chemotherapy-naive patients enrolled between September 2014 and December 2016 who received either six cycles of standard DCF (n = 36; docetaxel 75 mg/m2 and cisplatin 75 mg/m2 on day 1 and fluorouracil 750 mg/m2 per day for 5 days every 3 weeks) or eight cycles of modified DCF (n = 30; docetaxel 40 mg/m2 and cisplatin 40 mg/m2 on day 1 and fluorouracil 1,200 mg/m2 per day for 2 days every 2 weeks). The choice between standard or modified DCF was based on patient clinical status or investigator choice. Standard DCF was recommended for patients aged ≤ 75 years and with Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, and modified DCF was recommended for those older than 75 years ...
Anal high-risk human papillomavirus infection and high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia detected in women and heterosexual men infected with human immunodeficiency virus Sumanth Gandra, Aline Azar, Mireya WessolosskyDivision of Infectious Disease and Immunology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA, USABackground: Although anal high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infection and anal cytological abnormalities are highly prevalent among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected men who have sex with men (MSM), there are insufficient data on these abnormalities among HIV-infected heterosexual men (HSM) and women. In this study, we evaluated the prevalence of anal HR-HPV, cytological abnormalities, and performance of these screening tests in detecting high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN2+) among our cohort of HIV-infected MSM and non-MSM (HSM and women).Methods: A single-center, retrospective cohort study was conducted with HIV-infected individuals who underwent anal

Although anal cancer is a rare disease, its incidence is increasing in men and women worldwide. The most important risk factors are behaviors that predispose individuals to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection or immunosuppression. Anal cancer is generally preceded by high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN), which is most prevalent in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive men who have sex with men. There is a general consensus that high-risk individuals may benefit from screening. Meta-analysis suggests that 80% of anal cancers could be avoided by vaccination against HPV 16/18. Nearly half of all patients with anal cancer present with rectal bleeding. Pain or sensation of a rectal mass is experienced in 30% of patients, whereas 20% have no tumor-specific symptoms. According to the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database, 50% of patients with anal cancer have disease localized to the anus, 29% have regional lymph node involvement or direct spread beyond the primary, and

Anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC) and anal intra-epithelial neoplasia (AIN) incidences are bigger among human papillomavirus (HPV) infections, and are associated to immunity and to HIV infection. These viruses with sexual transmission in association suggested ASCC is a sexually transmitted tumor. HIV infection changed ASCC patient profile. This kind of tumor committed women in theirs sixties, but nowadays, affects mainly men in the third and forth decades of life. In the United States of America, ASCC was diagnosed in 19/100.000, in the pre-HAART (highly active anti-retroviral therapy) era (1992-1995), came to 48,3/100.000 in the immediate post-HAART period (1996-1999) and increased to 78,2/100.000 people per year from ...

In this study we provide a comprehensive clinical characterization of a cohort of patients with newly diagnosed anal carcinoma. According to our analyses, clinical symptoms have predictive value for local staging of anal carcinoma.. Our study fills a gap in our knowledge since no systematic study regarding physical findings in anal carcinoma has been performed. Furthermore, no contemporary study describing the clinical presentation of anal carcinoma is available and the incidence of anal carcinoma, the prevalence of risk factors and medical practice has tremendously changed since the publication of the last paper characterizing anal carcinoma almost 30 years ago [10-14]. In agreement with previous studies, bleeding, anal pain and sensation of an anal mass remain the most frequent symptoms of anal carcinoma. However, the presence of anal pain including painful defecation and perianal pain (63 vs. 20-35 %) as well as anal bleeding (77 vs. 45 %) were more frequent than in historical studies ...
Researchers found that overall incidence of anal squamous cell carcinoma in the US rose by 2.7% annually between 2001 and 2015, while mortality associated with the disease increased by 3.1% yearly between 2001 and 2016, with adults in their 50s and 60s especially affected. The findings were reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

(9) found HPV in similar proportions of anal canal cancers in women (89%) and men (56%). Another study of 93 women and 36 men with in situ or invasive anal cancer showed 70% of the tumors in women and 67% of those in men to be PCR positive to one or more of HPV-6, -11, -16, and -18, but a distinction between anal canal cancers and perianal skin cancers was not presented (8) .. Whether cancers involving the anal canal contain HPV more often than perianal skin cancers has been the subject of only few investigations. One study reported more HPV-16 in cancers originating above than below the dentate line (17 , 18) , and another small study detected HPV-16 by DNA in situ hybridization in 81% of anal canal ...
HIV infected men having sex with men (MSM) are at increased risk of developing anal cancer compared to the general population and the incidence continues to increase despite better control of HIV infection with HAART (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy). The causative agent is known to be Human Papilloma Virus infection which can lead to dysplastic changes in the anus, detectable by High Resolution Anoscopy with biopsies. The analysis of the abnormal tissue can then be graded as Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia 1 to 3, with AIN 2 or 3 considered as high grade dysplasia. These lesions are cancer precursors, but the proportion of lesions progressing to invasive anal cancer and the time to event are unknown. There is currently no recognized treatment to offer as standard of care although it is of general belief that treating these lesions, as it is done for women with CIN 2 and 3 (Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia) could help decrease the number of progressions to invasive anal cancer in MSM ...

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) announced yesterday their decision to expand the use of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, Gardasil, to prevent anal cancer and precancerous lesions. The HPV and Anal Cancer Foundation (the Foundation) testified in November before the FDA to urge the agency to approve Gardasil for the prevention of anal cancer in males and females.. "As advocates for the anal cancer community and members of a family that recently lost someone to the disease, we know how difficult treatment can be for a patient diagnosed with anal cancer," said Justine Almada, co-founder of the Foundation. "We applaud the FDA for approving the anal cancer indication for Gardasil; this indication will help to prevent future families from experiencing the devastating effects of the disease. As HPV causes as much as 90% of anal cancer cases, the vaccine has the potential to significantly curb the number of anal cancer diagnoses. This is a great step towards eliminating anal cancer and other ...
According to clinical presentation, patients could be divided in three age groups: asymptomatic (mean age 4.8 months, six patients - one with an associated complex genitourinary malformation, one with a presacral mature teratoma, one with ACD evidenced hysthologically on a retroanal mass removed during the correction of an ARM), mildly symptomatic - constipation, mucous discharge (mean age 29.2 months, four patients - one with associated presacral ependymoma and intestinal neuronal dysplasia type B, one with presacral mass) and complicated - perineal abscess, recurrent fistula (mean age 34 months, two patients ...
This meta-analysis investigated human papillomavirus (HPV) prevalence in vulvar, vaginal and anal intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN, VAIN, AIN) grades 1-3 and carcinoma from 93 studies conducted in 4 continents and using PCR assays. Overall HPV prevalence was 67.8%, 85.3% and 40.4% among 90 VIN1, 1,061 VIN2/3 and 1,873 vulvar carcinomas; 100%, 90.1% and 69.9% among 107 VAIN1, 191 VAIN2/3 and 136 vaginal carcinomas; and 91.5%, 93.9% and 84.3% among 671 AIN1, 609 AIN2/3 and 955 anal carcinomas, respectively. HPV16 was found more frequently (,75%) and HPV18 less frequently (,10%) in HPV-positive vulvar, vaginal and anal carcinomas than in cervical carcinoma. HPV6 and 11 were common in VIN1 and AIN1, but not in VAIN1. HPV prevalence in vulvar carcinoma varied most by histological type (69.4% in warty-basaloid and 13.2% in keratinized type) and was also higher in women 60 years or younger and in studies carried out in North America. HPV prevalence in anal carcinoma was higher among women (90.8%) than ...

The anal cancer refers to neoplasms that develop in the anus between the upper edge of the anal canal and the site where it connects with the perianal skin.. Among the variety of histological grades of malignant neoplasms, the intraepidermal carcinoma (squamous cell carcinoma) ranks the top position (50-75 %) of all such cases. This tumor is often reported in people over 50. Females with the anal canal cancer prevail.. There is a strong presumption of the link between the cancer and STD which are most likely the visual marker of the concurrent infection with the human papilloma virus.. ...

While the study has shown that anal lesions and high grade anal dysplasia is common among gay men and men who have sex with men (MSM) who are living with HIV, Grulichs findings have revealed the lesions often resolve spontaneously and routine treatment may be unnecessary.. Anal cancer and its precursors, anal dysplasia and neoplasia (abnormal cell growth and tissue changes), are more common among people living with HIV - especially men who have sex with men - than in the general population.. Grulichs natural history study was designed to learn more about the role anal human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and anal cancer precursors in HIV-positive and HIV-negative gay men plays in incident, risk factors and occurrence.. Some high risk types of HPV can lead to anal and cervical cancer, often first manifesting as intraepithelial lesions (LSIL), which can progress to high-grade lesions (HSIL).. However HPV does not always cause abnormal changes and Grulichs study has shown that HSIL is quite ...

Anal cytology has been suggested as a screening test for the anal cancer precursor high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL). We aimed to assess the prevalence and predictors of initial unsatisfactory anal cytology tests (unsats). The Study of the Prevention of Anal Cancer is a natural history study of anal human papillomavirus (HPV) and precancerous lesions among gay and bisexual men (GBM) of at least 35 years in Sydney, Australia. At each study visit, an anal swab is collected for cytological testing. Unsats are defined as slides with fewer than 2000 nucleated squamous cells and no abnormal cells. Among 617 GBM enrolled, the median age was 49 (range: 35-79) years and 220 (35.7%) were HIV positive. Initial unsats occurred in 61 (9.9%, 95% confidence interval: 7.6-12.5%), and 29 (4.7%, 95% confidence interval: 3.2-6.7%) remained unsatisfactory on repeat cytology. Initial unsats were associated with fewer lifetime anal-receptive partners with a condom (P=0.007); fewer recent ...
Your first biopsy should have been able to diagnosis what stage you are in. I assume you picked "anal cancer" on the CSNB site because the tumor is located in the anus. Type in anal canal cancer in the Google search site. There are great sites on these cancers for you to look through. Find out if it is vulva, vaginal or anal cancer. Most important did it spread to the lymph nodes? Cisplatin is often the chemo used for vulva, cervix cancers and radiation. They probably want to measure the depth of the tumor I suspect with a second surgery. Read the Andy5 postings here just under your first posting for in depth discussions on anal cancer. If it is anal cancer it has one of the highest "cure" rates if caught early. Be a proactive patient and get someone to be with you when the doctors are talking to you. Cancer is always scary.

BOSTON-Benign anorectal disease should be treated as a possible marker for precancerous anal lesions in men who have sex with men, Stephen E. Goldstone, MD, said at the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons annual meeting. 1
Treatment for anal cancer in the past typically meant extensive surgery and the removal of the anus. Today doctors have found ways to control anal cancer through radiation and chemotherapy, saving the anus and preserving normal bowel function for anal cancer survivors. But that isnt always possible for late-stage anal cancers. However, the majority of anal cancer is caught in its earliest stages - when treatment provides the best chance for cure..

Addition of the drug Platinol® (cisplatin) to 5-FU (5-flourouracil), mitomycin, and radiation may not improve outcomes for patients with anal cancer. These findings were recently published by the Journal of the American Medical Association.. Anal cancer is a rare form of cancer that develops in the tissues of the anus. Although treatment for anal cancer if often very effective, with most patients experiencing a cure, anal cancer can be a serious condition. The American Cancer Society estimates that 680 people will die of anal cancer in 2008. Current treatment options include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.. Current standards for treating anal cancer include chemotherapy and radiation. The five-year survival rate, however, following treatment with 5-FU, mitomycin, and radiation is only about 65%. Researchers in the current study sought to determine if the addition to standard therapy of Platinol, an alkylating agents that kills cancer cells by damaging their DNA, could improve outcomes of ...

N2 - Introduction: To assess both the adequacy of surgical resection and the short-term postoperative outcomes for patients undergoing single-site laparoscopy (SSL) surgery involving low anterior resection (LAR) and abdominoperineal resection (APR) for malignancies. Subjects and Methods: Consecutive rectal and anal cancer patients who underwent SSL LAR and APR were studied. Use of neoadjuvant therapy, operative details, and 30-day complications were sought. Radial and distal margins of resection and the pathologists evaluation of the mesorectum were analyzed. Results: Twelve patients (median age, 66 years) were identified; 11 (91%) were diagnosed with rectal adenocarcinoma and 1 (9%) with anal melanoma. Median location of the cancers was 5 cm from the anal verge, with 6 (55%) patients receiving neoadjuvant chemoradiation. ...
SANEVAX Questions the FDA Approval of Mercks Gardasil for anal cancer. Dr. Julie Gerberding, head of the vaccine division for Merck, was the head of the CDC under President Bush, and was responsible for the pediatric vaccine schedule, which included adding Dr. Paul Offits Merck vaccine RotaTeq during her watch. From SANEVAX, a watchdog group concerned with adverse reactions, including death, from the genital wart vaccine called Gardasil (and its competitor from GlaxoSmithKline Cevarix.). …According to the National Cancer Institute, an estimated 5,260 people will be diagnosed with anal cancer in 2010 (United States). 720 fatalities due to anal cancer are anticipated. The average age at diagnosis is 60. The data presented in a 1996 study indicates you are over 10 times more likely to die from an overdose of over-the-counter pain medications, such as aspirin, than you are to die of anal cancer. Merck made no mention of these facts anywhere in the documentation they presented to the FDA. ...
There is dysplastic squamous epithelium with coarse chromatin, nuclear hyperchromasia, nuclear enlargement, irregular nuclear membranes, and an increase nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratio. Mitotic activity is abundant. Several atypical mitoses are identified. The dysplastic squamous epithelium shows minimal maturation toward the surface (AIN 3). A sizable portion of the lesion show some maturation to the surface (AIN 2). Inflammation at the dermal-epidermal interface is minimal and the dermal-epidermal interface is well-demarcated. Focal ulceration is present. The margin of the biopsy has severely dysplastic epithelium (AIN 3). ...

Aside from the neoplasms that are clearly related to immunodeficiency, such as non-Hodgkins lymphoma and Kaposis sarcoma, numerous observations have also shown an association between HIV infection and the incidence of cervical and anal neoplasms. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the etiologic factor in anogenital neoplasms, although the mechanisms of the association are not clearly understood. It is believed that several HPV genes are critical in the malignant cell transformation process. An etiologic similarity exists between cervical and anal neoplasms, and the risk factors for the former appear to be the same for the latter, such as history of anal or genital warts, history of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and certain sexual practices. In addition, a number of studies have shown a relation between HIV-induced immunodeficiency, HPV infection, and the development of anal neoplasms. In a study of 210 men, anal intraepithelial neoplasia was more common in HIV-infected patients than non-HIV

There is an increasing body of evidence demonstrating the implication of apoptosis and/or its regulating proteins in the outcome of tumors treated by RT and chemotherapy (7 , 21, 22, 23, 24, 25) . In the present study, we investigated the value of the expression of the proapoptotic proteins Bax and p53 and of the antiapoptotic proteins Bcl-2 and Mcl-1, as well as the value of spontaneous apoptosis regarding the outcome in patients who have had nonsurgical treatment for anal cancer. With the exception of p53, to our knowledge, this is the first study that addresses the question of prognostic significance of these proteins in this disease. Although rare, anal carcinoma is one of the few cancers treated primarily by RT and chemotherapy. Identification of factors that can reliably predict a favorable treatment outcome would, thus, have paramount clinical importance in this disease. Moreover, biological predictive factors shown to be reliable in anal carcinoma might prove to be of value in other ...
Author certifies no potential conflicts of interest. Among the drugs most highly associated with risk-taking behavior are methamphetamines [ 8 ] and erectile dysfunction drugs [ 9 ]. Human papillomavirus is the major source of anal carcinoma among MSM, and the rates of anal carcinoma in MSM are much higher than the 2 per rate seen in the general population, with recent reports suggesting rates as high as 35 per and trends suggesting increasing rates, particularly among HIV-infected MSM [ 52 ].. ...
Hi, my name is Clare and I am from the UK. I was diagnosed with anal cancer in March 2011 aged 43. I was having some bowel trouble and thought I was constipated and had piles. I brushed it off till I started passing a lot of wind and leaking a bit of diarrhoea at the same time. I googled symptoms and saw bowel cancer… its ok, Im not bleeding. Oh right so Im bleeding, at least Im not losing weight, oh right Ive lost weight .. denial, denial… I waited six weeks and then went to see the GP. She said, "Oh, youve probably got IBS. Ill send you for a sigmoidoscopy to reassure you". Two weeks later there I was with a camera up my bum and the doctor saying thats abnormal; stay positive, they can do a lot with radiation these days. Ah, that must be cancer then. More scans and tests and eventually I was told that I had squamous cell anal carcinoma with possible spread to liver and lymph nodes. I wasnt told a stage but asked after treatment. Stage 3A (T4 tumour). The consultant told me I had ...

As the incidence of anal cancer rises steadily in the population as a whole and more sharply in specific risk groups, anal cancer and anal HSIL are receiving greater attention from the medical community as well as from at-risk patients. Because of the lack of standard and effective treatment options for the increasingly well-recognized condition of anal dysplasia, new approaches are greatly needed. The E6 or E7 gene products from the more common high-risk HPV types such as HPV-16 and HPV-18 are attractive chemotherapeutic targets because they are responsible for the oncogenic transformation of the infected cells and are consistently expressed throughout the neoplastic process.. Conventional vaccination most often stimulates a humoral immune response and is typically used prophylactically to prevent disease. A therapeutic vaccination that attempts to clear disease already in place (HPV infection or HPV-related disease such as dysplasia or invasive cancer) is thought to primarily require the ...
Who hasnt heard about Farrah Fawcetts battle with anal cancer? The well-known actress was diagnosed in 2006. Her diagnosis heightened awareness of anal cancer. However, not enough has been done to expand comprehensive screening among the at-risk population. Rates of cervical cancer have dropped dramatically with the use of screening Pap smears. At the same time anal cancer has increased.. Anal cancer is more common among men who have sex with men (MSM) with HIV infection or not. Rates are as high as 70-144 per 100,000 populations. HIV infected women and heterosexual men are also at risk. Just like cervical cancer, human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is the culprit. HPV is a so-called oncogenic virus. In other words, with chronic infection, it changes the affected tissue cells into precancerous and then possibly cancerous cells over a period of years. Tumors may go undetected for years until they increase in size to cause symptoms. HPV can also cause benign anal warts. It is important to note ...

Evaluating and treating all forms of AIN may lead to over-treatment. Treating only selected patients such as those with AIN III may lead to under-treatment and a failure to prevent an ominous progression of the disease. Longitudinal studies will be illuminating.. The recommendations for evaluating and treating AIN I and AIN II are not uniform.. AIN I or II may be observed and re-evaluated every three to six months. These may regress spontaneously.. Some practitioners do treat AIN I however, with the rationale that treating AIN I prevents the further spread of disease, reduces the symptoms associated with AIN I and reduces the extent of disease to the point that topical therapy remains possible.. The purported rationale for treating AIN II and AIN III is to prevent cancer. Again the natural history of the disease is not known, and the progression to an anal malignancy is not a given.. Erring on the side of caution, consideration must be given to eradicating AIN III.. High grade AIN (AIN III) is ...
Retrospective studies have confirmed the need for non-programmed treatment breaks notably because of skin or digestive reactions. Ajani et al. reported a rate of breaks of 61% with 2D-chemoradiation [15]. With IMRT, the number of breaks for toxicity ranged from 18% to 50%. For Bazan et al. IMRT made it possible to significantly reduce the median duration of the treatment (57 versus 40 days, p, 0.0001) [6]. Breaks for toxicity were significantly more frequent with 3D-RT than with IMRT (88% versus 34.5%, p= 0.001). In our study, we found 11.1% and 20.8% of breaks for toxicity for 3D-CRT and IMRT, respectively (p= 0.48). Our rate of breaks with IMRT was comparable to Bazan et al. (20.8% versus 24.1%) [6]. However, we found far fewer breaks with 3D-CRT (11.1% versus 88%), which very probably explains the discordance of the results with regard to the impact of the technique used.. With IMRT it is possible to reduce total treatment time: median treatment time was 49 and 42 days in the RTOG 98-11 trial ...
This treatment break has felt like the best vacation ever. Theres still a doctors appointment somewhere most weeks (though I did have a 2+ week break!). But my body has rebounded in spades from the lack of poison in my life. So often while in treatment I was at the direction and mercy of my body. I might have plans or expectations for the day, and then my body would change the direction of the day or even just flat-out say "NO!" to everything. Ive learned to be even more mutable than I was in the BC (before cancer) days, but I do still dislike having my options limited. There is also that whole control thing. Its awfully nice to be able to make decisions for myself versus having them forced upon me. It has been nine weeks since any type of treatment and, to be completely honest, there is some part of my mind that really hopes next weeks newest scans show everything is all clear again. It will be two weeks from now before I get the results... yet my hope and optimism have somehow rebounded as ...

In the darkest years of AIDS, when it seemed that that diagnosis alone was purely and simply a death sentence, patients met the most common cancer that came with it with an ironic shrug of the shoulders. What could be worse than having AIDS? A skin cancer on top was hardly going to change the outcome. However, the human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8)-related Kaposis was also a final irony for many; a series of purple patches that identified them to the rest of the world like a Nazi pink triangle. Many people looked in the mirror and saw the disappearance of fat and muscle, the sunken faces, wild eyes and pallid skin as being bad enough but clutched on to the belief that externally, other people still couldnt be sure that they were victims of AIDS. Kaposis removed the doubt completely and AIDS patients felt marked as much as if they were wearing badges proclaiming their fate.. It was first of Johns four cancers and sneaked in some time after his HIV diagnosis and initial treatment, beginning when he ...

To compare volumetric-modulated arc therapy (RapidArc) plans with conventional intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plans in anal canal cancers. Ten patients with anal canal carcinoma previously treated with IMRT in our institution were selected for this study. For each patient, three plans were generated with the planning CT scan: one using a fixed beam IMRT, and two plans using the RapidArc technique: a single (RA1) and a double (RA2) modulated arc therapy. The treatment plan was designed to deliver in one process with simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) a dose of 59.4 Gy to the planning target volume (PTV2) based on the gross disease in a 1.8 Gy-daily fraction, 5 days a week. At the same time, the subclinical disease (PTV1) was planned to receive 49.5 Gy in a 1.5 Gy-daily fraction. Plans were normalized to 99% of the PTV2 that received 95% of the prescribed dose. Planning objectives were 95% of the PTV1 will receive 95% of the prescribed dose and no more than 2% of the PTV will receive more
Breaks from treatment with vismodegib enable patients with advanced basal cell carcinoma (aBCC) to remain longer on treatment, according to a study presented here at the 24th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress.. Reinhard Dummer, MD, Dermatologische Klinik, Universitäts Spital, Zurich, Switzerland, and colleagues performed an exploratory analysis of the effect of treatment breaks on patients treated with vismodegib while taking part in the ongoing STEVIE trial.. In the STEVIE trial, patients with aBCC receive vismodegib 150 mg once daily until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal.. "Treatment breaks are allowed in the STEVIE study for up to 8 weeks for the management of toxicity or temporary inability to swallow capsules," explained Dr. Dummer.. The reasons provided for treatment breaks were intolerable toxicity in 53%, adverse events (AEs) in 23%, patient decision in 9%, and inability to swallow capsules in 5% of patients receiving treatment ...

The current scoping review aims to map available evidence regarding the distribution of HPV-related cancers, the risk factors, and its association with HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa in order to reveal research gaps in this area. High-risk HPV types are the cause of all cervical cancers, anogenital cancers including the vulva, and anal and penile cancers [14, 15], as well as head and neck cancers [16]. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest incidence of HPV and cervical cancer in the world [17]. HPV-related cancers are rising and they are a major public health concern exacerbating current disease burden in sub-Saharan Africa [18]. The burden of HPV-associated diseases is substantially increased where there is a HIV-1 co-infection [19], and with diverse HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, the burden of HPV-related cancers might still rise. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) include targets relevant to womens cancers, including a one-third reduction in premature mortality from ...
In a univariate analysis, women with a history of anal sex were more likely to have high-grade anal dysplasia (unadjusted odds ratio 1.83, or 83% greater risk); age was a critical factor as well, since cancers are more common in older people. However, in an analysis that adjusted first for age and then for multiple other factors, the only risk factor that was significantly associated with high-grade anal dysplasia was being either a current or former smoker (adjusted odds ratio 1.93, or nearly double the risk).. Looking at the performance of the screening algorithms, 19% of women with abnormal cytology tests would not have met the screening criteria of the New York State Department of Health/AIDS Institute guidelines - of whom 26% were diagnosed with high-grade dysplasia on biopsy (including the one case of invasive anal carcinoma). Likewise, 7% would not have met the HIVMA guidelines criteria, of whom 20% were diagnosed with high-grade dysplasia.. "Screening for anal dysplasia in all ...
Anal cancer is often detected during a routine rectal examination or procedure, such as hemorrhoid removal, though it is usually identified by a patient reporting symptoms. During a digital rectal exam, a medical provider inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into the anus to feel for any abnormalities. He or she may also perform an anoscopy or proctoscopy (examination of the anus and rectum using a short, lighted tube). If anal cancer is suspected, the doctor will perform a biopsy. If anal cancer is diagnosed, staging tests to determine whether the cancer has spread may include abdominal and pelvic CT scan, a pelvic MRI scan, a chest X-ray, and liver function tests. Treatment for anal cancer depends on the stage of the disease. Stage 0, carcinoma in situ, indicates that abnormal cells have been identified in the area but have not become cancer. Stage I indicates a tumor measuring 2 centimeters or smaller, while Stage II indicates a tumor larger than 2 centimeters. Stage IIIA and IIIB describes a ...
Genital infection with low-risk types of HPV is associated with genital warts in men. Infection with high-risk types of HPV is associated with a proportion of preinvasive squamous lesions of the penis (penile intraepithelial neoplasia or PIN) and with penile cancer, as well as with preinvasive squamous lesions of the anus (anal intraepithelial neoplasia or AIN) and with anal cancer.. Invasive penile cancer is quite uncommon, especially in circumcised men.. In 2002, the age-adjusted incidence rate for penile cancer in the U.S. was 0.8 per 100,000 men (985 new cases). The age-adjusted incidence rate for anal cancer was 1.2 per 100,000 men (1,453 new cases). However, the risk of anal cancer for MSM is significantly higher.. Because of the increased incidence of anal cancer in MSM, especially HIV-infected MSM, some specialists recommend screening for AIN by cytology in this population. However, there are limited data on the natural history of AIN, the reliability of screening methods, the safety and ...
A new Columbia University Medical Center study demonstrates the safety and efficacy of two low-tech diagnostic tools to significantly reduce the prevalence of cervical cancer precursor lesions. Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in women in many developing countries. Designed as rapid screen-and-treat methods that could be done the same day, the protocols could finally make prevention of cervical cancer a viable option for all women in any setting around the world.
Carcinoma of the anal canal is a rare malignancy representing approximately 2.5% of all gastrointestinal malignancies. It is estimated in 2015 that over 7,200 patients will be diagnosed with carcinoma of the anal canal in the United States, resulting in greater than 1,000 deaths (1). The incidence of this disease continues to rise steadily. A practicing oncologist will evaluate and treat less than one such patient per year. The majority of anal carcinoma arises within the mucosa of the anus and is of squamous cell histology (2). Traditionally, 74% to 90% of carcinomas of the anal canal are cured with the combined modalities of chemoradiation, reserving an abdominoperineal resection (APR) for salvage therapy of persistent or recurrent disease (3). This chapter focuses on treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal and the potential innovative strategies that lie ahead. ...

Methods: Using data from nationwide, population-based Danish registries, a cohort of 126,174 individuals with either non-neoplastic anal disease or AIN 1 to 3 during 1970 to 2016 was followed until first occasion of anal cancer. Information on HIV status was obtained from the Danish HIV Cohort Study. The absolute risk of anal cancer was estimated using the Aalen-Johansen estimator taking into account censoring at emigration and end of follow-up and competing risk at time of death. Standardized incidence ratios (SIR) for anal cancer among individuals with non-neoplastic anal disease, including inflammatory lesions, hemorrhoids, and polyps, were estimated in Poisson models. Sex-, age-, and calendar period-specific national population rates were estimated using the Danish National Pathology Registry. ...
A vaccine for anal cancer is an important consideration, though this is a rare form of cancer. Though only about 5000 cases are reported per year in the United States, over the past 30% years, this cancer has seen a growth of about 2% a year. Also the rate of death resulting from this disease is rising, according to the Joel Palefsky, MD, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, who made a pitch on behalf of the pharma company. ...

Both these surgeries are performed to remove bowel disease affecting different parts of the large bowel. The choice of surgery is dependent on where the growth or disease extends to.. The abdomino-perineal resection involves removing a section of large bowel (the sigmoid colon) along with the rectum and the anus (the back passage).. The total colectomy with proctectomy involves removing the entire large bowel along with the rectum and anus (the back passage). When the back passage is removed, the area is then stitched up and permanently closed. A new permanent opening for the bowel is called a stoma and is made in the wall of the abdomen (tummy). Bo dy waste then collects in a disposable adhesive bag which covers the new stoma.. If you are undergoing the abdomino-perineal resection, the stoma is called a colostomy because it is formed in the remaining section of the large bowel (colon). If you are undergoing a total colectomy with proctectomy, the stoma is called an Ileostomy because it is ...

The abdominoperineal resection of the rectum is a classical operation performed in case of patients diagnosed with rectal cancer. The development of laparoscopic techniques in recent years, introduced yet another method of treatment, considering patients with rectal cancer- laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection of the rectum. The aim of the study was to present initial treatment results considering the above-mentioned patients. Material and methods. The study group comprised 25 patients (16 male and 9 female) diagnosed with low-rectal cancer, subjected to surgery by means of the above-mentioned method. Mean patient age amounted to 66 years. Three (12%) patients required conversion to classical surgery (laparotomy), while one patient required reoperation, due to presacral vascular bleeding. Complications were observed in 10 (40%) patients. Average hospitalization was 7 days. In case of all patients the radial margin was negative, and mean number of removed lymph nodes amounted to 9.6. Mortality ...
Detection of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs) on an anal Pap smear had a sensitivity of 47% (95% CI, 35%59%) and specificity of 90% (95% CI, 81%96%) for detection of a high-grade histological finding (AIN level 2, AIN level 3, or SCC) in the paired specimen. Likewise, detection of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSILs) on an anal Pap smear had a sensitivity of 68% (95% CI, 56%78%) and a specificity of 48% (95% CI, 36%59%) for detection of AIN level 1 by the paired examination. A Pap smear finding of atypical squamous cells of uncertain significance showed essentially an equal distribution of pathological grades on paired histological examinations. The positive and negative predictive values were 81% (95% CI, 66%92%) and 65% (95% CI, 55%74%), respectively, for HSIL on Pap smears predicting high-grade histological findings (P < .01). The positive and negative predictive values for LSIL were 59% (95% CI, 48%69%) and 57% (95% CI, 44%70%), respectively, for prediction ...
