Chronic myelogenous leukemia--progress at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center over the past two decades and future directions: first Emil J Freireich Award Lecture. (1/430)

The purpose of this study was to review the progress in clinical and translational research in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) over the past 20 years at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. The CML database updating the clinical and basic research investigations was reviewed as the source of this report. Publications resulting from these investigations were summarized. The long-term results with intensive chemotherapy, IFN-alpha therapy alone or in combination, autologous stem cell transplantation, and new agents such as homoharringtonine and decitabine showed encouraging results. Biological studies related to the BCR-ABL molecular abnormality, other molecular events, and the detection of minimal residual disease were detailed. Future strategies with potential promise in CML were outlined. Significant progress in understanding CML biology and in treating patients afflicted with the disease has occurred. Several therapeutic and research tools are currently investigated, which should hopefully improve further the prognosis of patients with CML.  (+info)

Initial experience with sentinel node biopsy in breast cancer at the National Cancer Center Hospital East. (2/430)

BACKGROUND: Axillary lymph node dissection is an important procedure in the surgical treatment of breast cancer. Axillary lymph node dissection is still performed in over half of breast cancer patients having histologically negative nodes, regardless of the morbidity in terms of axillary pain, numbness and lymphedema. The first regional lymph nodes draining a primary tumor are the sentinel lymph nodes. Sentinel node biopsy is a promising surgical technique for predicting histological findings in the remaining axillary lymph nodes, especially in patients with clinically node-negative breast cancer, and a worldwide feasibility study is currently in progress. METHODS: Intraoperative lymphatic mapping and sentinel node biopsy were performed in the axilla by subcutaneous injection of blue dye (indigocarmine) in 88 cases of stage 0-IIIB breast cancer. Sentinel lymph nodes were identified by detecting blue-staining lymph nodes or dye-filled lymphatic tracts after total or partial mastectomy. Finally, axillary lymph node dissection was performed up to Levels I and II or more. RESULTS: Sentinel lymph nodes were successfully identified in 65 of the 88 cases (74%). In the final histological examination, the sentinel lymph nodes in 40 cases were negative, including four cases with non-sentinel-node-positive breast cancer (specificity, 100%; sensitivity, 86%). In nine (31%) of the 29 cases with histologically node-positive breast cancer, the sentinel lymph nodes were the only lymph nodes affected. Axillary lymph node status was accurately predicted in 61 (94%) of the 65 cases. CONCLUSIONS: Although it was the initial experience at the National Cancer Center Hospital East, sentinel node biopsy proved feasible and successful. This method may be a reasonable alternative to the standard axillary lymph node dissection in patients with early breast cancer.  (+info)

Impact of the treating institution on survival of patients with "poor-prognosis" metastatic nonseminoma. European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Genito-Urinary Tract Cancer Collaborative Group and the Medical Research Council Testicular Cancer Working Party. (3/430)

BACKGROUND: Because metastatic nonseminomatous germ cell cancer is a rare but treatable cancer, we have explored whether there is an association between the experience of the treating institution with this disease and the long-term clinical outcome of the patients, particularly patients with a poor prognosis. METHODS: We analyzed data on 380 patients treated in one of 49 institutions participating in the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer/ Medical Research Council randomized trial of four cycles of bleomycin-etoposide-cisplatin followed by two cycles of etoposide-cisplatin versus three cycles of bleomycin-vincristine-cisplatin followed by three cycles of etoposide-ifosfamide-cisplatin-bleomycin, both treatment regimens given with or without filgrastim (granulocyte colony-stimulating factor). Institutions were divided into four groups based on the total number of patients entered in the trial. The groups were compared by use of the Cox proportional hazards model stratified for treatment with filgrastim and for patient prognosis as defined by the International Germ Cell Consensus Classification Group. With the use of this classification, only 65 % of the patients had a poor prognosis. RESULTS: Patients treated in the 26 institutions that entered fewer than five patients into the trial had an overall survival that was statistically significantly worse (two-sided P = .010; hazard ratio = 1.85; 95% confidence interval = 1.16-3.03) than that of patients treated in the 23 institutions that entered five patients or more. Overall survival and failure-free survival were similar among institutions that entered at least five patients. The observed effect may be related to differences in adherence to the chemotherapy protocol and in the frequency and extent of surgery for residual masses, although only the differences in dose intensity achieved statistical significance. CONCLUSIONS: Patients treated in institutions that entered fewer than five patients into the trial appeared to have poorer survival than those treated in institutions that entered a larger number of patients with "poor-prognosis" nonseminoma.  (+info)

Incremental costs of enrolling cancer patients in clinical trials: a population-based study. (4/430)

BACKGROUND: Payment for care provided as part of clinical research has become less predictable as a result of managed care. Because little is known at present about how entry into cancer trials affects the cost of care for cancer patients, we conducted a matched case-control comparison of the incremental medical costs attributable to participation in cancer treatment trials. METHODS: Case patients were residents of Olmsted County, MN, who entered phase II or phase III cancer treatment trials at the Mayo Clinic from 1988 through 1994. Control patients were patients who did not enter trials but who were eligible on the basis of tumor registry matching and medical record review. Sixty-one matched pairs were followed for up to 5 years after the date of trial entry for case patients or from an equivalent date for control patients. Hospital, physician, and ancillary service costs were estimated from a population-based cost database developed at the Mayo Clinic. RESULTS: Trial enrollees incurred modestly (no more than 10%) higher costs over various follow-up periods. The mean cumulative 5-year cost in 1995 inflation-adjusted U.S. dollars among trial enrollees after adjustment for censoring was $46424 compared with $44 133 for control patients. After 1 year, trial enrollee costs were $24645 compared with $23 964 for control patients. CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that cancer chemotherapy trials may not imply budget-breaking costs. Cancer itself is a high-cost illness. Clinical protocols may add relatively little to that cost.  (+info)

Influence of data display formats on physician investigators' decisions to stop clinical trials: prospective trial with repeated measures. (5/430)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect of the method of data display on physician investigators' decisions to stop hypothetical clinical trials for an unplanned statistical analysis. DESIGN: Prospective, mixed model design with variables between subjects and within subjects (repeated measures). SETTING: Comprehensive cancer centre. PARTICIPANTS: 34 physicians, stratified by academic rank, who were conducting clinical trials. INTERVENTIONS: PARTICIPANTS were shown tables, pie charts, bar graphs, and icon displays containing hypothetical data from a clinical trial and were asked to decide whether to continue the trial or stop for an unplanned statistical analysis. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Percentage of accurate decisions with each type of display. RESULTS: Accuracy of decisions was affected by the type of data display and positive or negative framing of the data. More correct decisions were made with icon displays than with tables, pie charts, and bar graphs (82% v 68%, 56%, and 43%, respectively; P=0.03) and when data were negatively framed rather than positively framed in tables (93% v 47%; P=0.004). CONCLUSIONS: Clinical investigators' decisions can be affected by factors unrelated to the actual data. In the design of clinical trials information systems, careful consideration should be given to the method by which data are framed and displayed in order to reduce the impact of these extraneous factors.  (+info)

An audit of primary surgical treatment for women with ovarian cancer referred to a cancer centre. (6/430)

Ovarian cancer is the commonest cause of gynaecological cancer death in the UK, and guidelines for initial surgery and staging of this disease are widely available. We report a retrospective audit of the surgical management of patients with newly diagnosed ovarian cancer referred to the Christie Cancer Centre in Manchester in 1996. The aim was to assess compliance with surgical guidelines. The authors found that the majority of patients (92%) presented via an outpatient clinic and for these individuals surgery was therefore elective. This mode of presentation should allow management by a small number of dedicated gynaecologists at each hospital, but up to seven consultants in each hospital performed surgery on a relatively small number of patients. Furthermore, less than half the patients underwent the recommended surgical procedure. Although some patients may have 'inoperable' disease, these data suggest that a greater compliance with national and international guidelines are required to provide an optimal level of care.  (+info)

A comprehensive assessment of satisfaction with care: preliminary psychometric analysis in an oncology institute in Italy. (7/430)

BACKGROUND: Little is known about patients' perception of the quality of the care they receive in oncology hospitals. We developed a 61-item comprehensive assessment of satisfaction with care (CASC) to evaluate the competence of hospital physicians and nurses, as well as aspects of care organisation and hospital environment. The aims of this study were to define the structure of the CASC and assess the internal consistency and convergent and discriminant validity of its scales. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three hundred ninety-five consecutive cancer patients discharged from an oncology institute in Italy were asked to complete the CASC at home and return it in a self-addressed envelope. RESULTS: Two percent of the patients refused to participate and 25% failed to return the questionnaire. Separate factor analyses of the CASC sub-scales disclosed the perceived extent of doctors' and nurses' availability, coordination, human quality, technical competence, provision of psychosocial care and information, as well as the patients' general satisfaction, perception of the organisation of their care, access and comfort. Multi-trait scaling analysis was carried out on item-grouping resulting from factor analyses. High levels of internal consistency and convergent validity were obtained but discriminant validity could be improved. CONCLUSIONS: Results of present psychometric testing of the CASC forecast adequate properties. This will be confirmed by repeating these analyses in a cross-cultural setting.  (+info)

Molecular characterization of a nosocomial outbreak of human respiratory syncytial virus on an adult leukemia/lymphoma ward. (8/430)

Although nosocomial transmission of human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) and its effect on morbidity and mortality among immunocompromised adults are well recognized, few studies have applied molecular techniques to differentiate nosocomial from community-acquired infections. Between January and April 1997, an outbreak of HRSV occurred among adult patients in a leukemia/lymphoma ward. Among 45 hospitalized patients undergoing bronchoscopy for investigation of acute respiratory illness, 8 were identified with HRSV infection. One infected patient developed symptoms before admission and was thought to be the index case. However, subsequent sequencing of 7 HRSV isolates identified 2 distinct genotypes, GA5 (1 case) and GB3 (6 cases). The 6 GB3 isolates could be further differentiated into 2 strains with identical nucleotide sequences that differed from each other and from 14 community HRSV isolates. Instead of a single nosocomial outbreak of HRSV, multiple introductions of HRSV likely occurred with distinct lines of nosocomial transmission.  (+info)

Recognizing a critical need to improve national vaccination rates for the human papillomavirus (HPV), the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center has again united with each of the 69 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers in issuing a joint statement in support of recently revised recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).. According to the CDC, incidence rates of HPV-associated cancers have continued to rise, with approximately 39,000 new HPV-associated cancers now diagnosed each year in the United States. Although HPV vaccines can prevent the majority of cervical, anal, oropharyngeal (middle throat) and other genital cancers, vaccination rates remain low across the U.S., with just 41.9 percent of girls and 28.1 percent of boys completing the recommend vaccine series.. The new guidelines from the CDC recommend that children aged 11 to 12 should receive two doses of the HPV vaccine at least six months apart. Adolescents and young adults older than 15 ...

UCLA scientists have unlocked an important mechanism that allows chemotherapy-carrying nanoparticles-extremely small objects between 1 and 100 nanometers (a billionth of a meter)-to directly access pancreatic cancer tumors, thereby improving the ability to kill cancer cells and hence leading to more effective treatment outcome of the disease. The researchers also confirmed the key role of a peptide (an extremely small protein) in regulating vascular access of the nanoparticle to the cancer site.. The discovery is the result of a two-year study co-led by Drs. Huan Meng and André Nel, members of UCLAs Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and the UCLA California NanoSystems Institute. The findings are important as they demonstrate how the delivery of chemotherapy to pancreatic cancer can be improved significantly through the use of smart-designed nanoparticle features.. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is generally a fatal disease, with a five-year survival rate of less than 6 percent. The ...

While tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States, smoking has become far less prevalent in the country in recent years, in part because of anti-tobacco campaigns and a general push toward better health, says Stanton A. Glantz, PhD, director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education. The centers faculty members are affiliated with the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.. "Currently, in California, about 12 percent of the population smokes, Glantz says, "with two-thirds of them being light smokers.. For social smokers as well as heavy smokers, it can be a daunting challenge to halt an entrenched addiction. Some are afraid to stop - theyve smoked so long. Some are ashamed to reach out for help until theyre sick. And some simply believe they can quit whenever they like.. At their disposal awaits a battery of possible remedies: nicotine replacement patches and gum, nicotine inhalers, antidepressants, ...

Background: Molecularly targeted drugs specific for mutated genes are increasingly the focus of novel clinical trials. However, molecular profiling of tumors is largely unavailable in community cancer centers, where nearly 80% of cancer patients (pts) are treated. In October 2012, Sarah Cannon Research Institute (SCRI) launched a community-based molecular profiling initiative to characterize the spectrum of molecular alterations in tumors. The profiling panel focused on potentially actionable mutations for the purpose of identifying candidates for treatment with specific targeted agents (FDA approved or investigational). Herein, we report the initial data from breast cancers (BC) profiled between October 2012 and May 2013.. Methods: Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) pts , 18 years of age with ECOG PS ≤ 2 who were candidates for treatment provided consent for tumor molecular profiling. Archival tumor specimens (tissue block or 10 unstained slides) obtained from either the primary or metastatic ...
By MASAHIKO IDEGAWA, The Asahi Shimbun. The Japanese Association of Clinical Cancer Centers for the first time released the five-year survival rates of cancer patients along with the names of the medical institutions. The data released Thursday about patients suffering from stomach, breast, lung and colon cancers show a big difference in the survival rates at the 30 member institutions. For stomach cancer, for example, the National Cancer Center Hospital in Tokyos Tsukiji district had the highest five-year survival rate, at 84.1 percent. The lowest rate was 45.5 percent at an institution that was not named. The association released the names and the rates in response to growing demands from patients for treatment results at specific hospitals. The association also wants to encourage each cancer center to analyze the reasons for the discrepancies in the survival rates so that all the hospitals will be able to provide equal levels of treatment. However, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare ...
Head/neck sarcomas are rare, accounting for about 1% of head/neck malignancies and 5% of sarcomas. Outcomes have historically been worse in this group, due to anatomic constraints leading to difficulty in completely excising tumors, with high rates of local recurrence. We retrospectively analyzed cases of head/neck soft tissue sarcomas (STS) and osteogenic sarcomas managed in a multi-disciplinary setting at Fox Chase Cancer Center from 1999-2009 to describe clinicopathologic characteristics, treatment, outcomes, and prognostic factors for disease control and survival. Thirty patients with STS and seven patients with osteogenic sarcoma were identified. Most STS were high grade (23) and almost all were localized at presentation (28). Common histologies were synovial cell (6), rhabdomyosarcoma (5), angiosarcoma (4), liposarcoma (4) and leiomyosarcoma (3). The type of primary therapy and disease outcomes were analyzed. Cox proportional hazards regression analysis was performed to identify predictors of

According to the doctors, the concern is that human papillomavirus can lead to lethal cervical, esophagus and other cancers. Recently, 69 National Cancer Institute-chosen cancer centers sent a letter to the CDC sanctioning the recommendations. Among these select few organizations were the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins and The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center.. Some of these approved recommendations endorse that children aged 11 to 12, under the new guidelines, should obtain two amounts of the HPV vaccine no less than six months apart. A three-dose series is recommended for those older than 15.. They stand by these recommendations due to the 79 million individuals in the United States that are disease-ridden with HPV. They are worried that these numbers seem to be increasing rather than decreasing. The CDC reports that over 39,000 different cancers connected to HPV are found each year in the United States.. Whereas, Dr. ...
All women are at risk for breast cancer. Men can also get breast cancer, but it is rare. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women of all combined major racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Breast cancer forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. ...
The first step for women who want to reduce their risk of breast, ovarian, and other cancers is to thoroughly understand their risk factors, including family history. The second step is to adopt an ongoing, personalized prevention plan that reflects their unique risks.. That was the message from experts with the Health Centers Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center during a Discovery Series panel discussion on Sept. 25. "Throughout my career, Ive come to see each cancer - especially ovarian cancer, which is very difficult to treat when detected late - as a missed opportunity for prevention," said Dr. Molly Brewer, director of the Health Centers Division of Gynecologic Oncology. Brewer, a nationally recognized expert, said one of the reasons she joined the Health Center faculty last year was the opportunity to focus her practice on prevention. Under her leadership, the Health Center recently started a new Womens Cancer Prevention Program within the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center.. Brewer and the ...
A new study from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center finds that patients with decreased core muscle density were more likely to see their cancer spread to distant parts of the body. These findings may also support the idea that the patients biological response to a tumor is important in controlling the spread of melanoma. Patients whose systems are less able to mount a response may be more prone to their cancer spreading.. The researchers believe that identifying those patients who are at higher risk of poor outcomes could impact treatment decisions, including the success of new immunotherapy drugs. And potentially, if this degenerative muscle loss, called sarcopenia, can be reversed, patients might have better outcomes.. The study, which appears online in Annals of Surgical Oncology, looked at 101 patients treated for stage III melanoma at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center. Researchers examined CT scans for each patient to measure the area and density of a core muscle ...

Nuñez and first author Nobuhiko Kamada, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow, made the findings by studying mice that they infected with C. rodentium - the rodent equivalent of harmful E. coli. The study included specially bred germ-free mice that lacked all the "good" gut bacteria that normal mice and humans harbor.. Both Nuñez and Kamada are members of the U-M Medical Schools Department of Pathology and the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the work fits into their broader investigations of how inflammation and immunity play a role in the bodys response to cancer as well as infections.. Fittingly, Nuñez holds the Paul H. de Kruif Professorship in Pathology, named for the U-M graduate who wrote Microbe Hunters, a pivotal 1926 book on the history of infectious disease research.

Wicha, M.D., founding director and distinguished professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, speaking at the National Comprehensive Cancer Networks 12th Annual Conference..
