Significant therapeutic platinum levels were measured in the human tumors 2.5 and 5 hours after carboplatin administration. Increasing the temperature by 9 degrees C for 15 minutes doubled platinum levels in the rabbit model. Of the 38 eyes with Reese-Ellsworth group 1 through 5b tumors that were treated primarily with thermochemotherapy, all 24 eyes with group 1 and 2 tumors were treated successfully and two of the 4 eyes with group 3 tumors and all 10 eyes with group 5b tumors were treated unsuccessfully. Chemoreduction plus SALT was the primary treatment in 35 eyes and was successful in all 10 eyes with group 1 through 4 tumors and unsuccessful in all 7 eyes with extensive subretinal seeding and all 18 eyes with group 5b tumors with vitreous seeding. Seventy patients received carboplatin or carboplatin, vincristine, and etoposide, with myelosuppression, occasionally associated with bacteremia, being the main side effect. Transfusions were required in 15% of patients. Radiation retinopathy ...
Purpose: : 2-Amino-4,4α-dihydro- 4α,7-dimethyl-3H-phenoxazine-3-one (Phx) is known to have growth-inhibitory effects on various cell lines such as squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and leukemia cell lines. In this study, we examined the efficacy of Phx on the proliferation of a human retinoblastoma cell line (Y-79) both in vitro and in vivo. Methods: : We evaluated the in vitro effect of Phx on the viability and apoptosis of Y-79 cells using MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide] assay. The effect of Phx on apoptosis of Y-79 cells was also evaluated by flow cytometry using annexin-V. The in vivo efficacy of subcutaneous injection of Phx was analyzed histopathologically in BALB/c nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with Y-79 cells. Results: : Phx inhibited the in vitro proliferation of Y-79 cells in a dose-dependent manner. The data obtained by flow cytometry suggest that the mechanism of proliferation inhibition is associated with apoptosis. In vivo, no ...
purpose. To characterize the molecular sequelae induced in retinoblastoma (Rb) cells by histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs). Hydroxamic acid-based HDACIs such as vorinostat (suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid) induce the differentiation and apoptosis of transformed cells. Vorinostat has demonstrated significant anticancer activity against hematologic and solid tumors at doses well tolerated by patients and has been approved for the treatment of patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.. methods. The authors evaluated the effects of the HDACIs vorinostat and m-carboxycinnamic acid bis-hydroxamide on the Rb cell lines Y79 and WERI-Rb1 with the use of the MTT assay, BrdU incorporation assay, flow cytometry, immunoblotting, gene-expression profiling, quantitative RT-PCR, and NF-κB DNA-binding assay.. results. Both HDACIs were effective against both Rb cell lines, inducing growth arrest and apoptosis in vitro. Vorinostat increased p53 expression and activated caspases -8, -9 and -3, whereas caspase ...
It has been proposed that the GAG-binding property of PEDF provides the molecular basis for its association with extracellular matrices and may serve to localize PEDF activity in the retina and CNS [14, 19]. However, the present results point to direct effects these polysaccharides might have on the biochemical interactions between PEDF and PEDF receptors on the surfaces of cells that respond to this neurotrophic factor. We have shown that the binding of PEDF to receptors in retinoblastoma cells is enhanced by the presence of extracellular heparin/HS-like GAGs, which can be found in the culture medium of retinoblastoma cells. The fact that the binding of PEDF to cell surfaces decreases with heparin/HS depletion, implies that heparin/HS molecules might act as cofactors for PEDF-receptor interactions. Interactions between PEDF and extracellular GAGs can also explain the complex formed by PEDF with CM even after protease treatment of the latter. The PEDF-heparin/HS complex may somehow facilitate ...
Trilateral retinoblastoma is a syndrome consisting of bilateral (rarely unilateral) hereditary retinoblastoma in association with an intracranial neuroblastic tumour arising usually in the pineal region, infrequently at the suprasellar or parasellar region. It can arise from either hereditary or sporadic forms of retinoblastoma.
Background: Radiation is implicated in the induction of second malignancies in children with bilateral retinoblastoma. There is a need to determine whether this risk can be justified by good visual outcome when external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) is used as a salvage treatment.. Aim: To study the effectiveness of EBRT as a salvage treatment after failed primary chemotherapy and focal treatment in bilateral retinoblastoma.. Methods: This is a retrospective observational case series. The outcome measures after EBRT are: rate of eye preservation, rate of tumour control, visual potential, visual acuity, and radiation-induced side-effects.. Results: Thirty-six eyes (22 patients) were included. The median follow-up after EBRT was 40 months (19-165 months). Thirty-two eyes received lens-sparing radiotherapy and 4 received whole-eye radiation. The rate of eye preservation was 83.3% (30/36 eyes). Twenty-four eyes (66.6%) were controlled by EBRT and required no further treatment. Of the 30 preserved eyes, ...
Choroidal neovascularization (CNV), a complication of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is the most common cause of profound visual loss in the United States. Laser photocoagulation has been shown to retard visual loss, however only about 20% of patients with CNV are eligible for laser treatment.. Conventional laser photocoagulation of CNV requires laser intensities adequate to coagulate proteins in the target tissue. Due to the proximity of CNV to the center of vision (fovea), the intensity of laser irradiation necessary, and the heat conduction in the ocular tissues, collateral tissue damage often results which further compromises vision. Recently, a new class of compounds (angiostatic steroids) have been found to inhibit the formation of new blood vessels (i.e. neovascularization) in the eye. One new angiostatic steroid, anecortave acetate (AL-3789), may represent a breakthrough in the therapy of ocular neovascular diseases such as AMD and diabetic retinopathy. Anecortave acetate ...
Patients will receive an injection of 15 mg of Anecortave acetate behind the eye to be treated ("study eye"). They will be evaluated every six months to determine if their condition is stable or worse. Following the injection of study medication, patients will not be required to come in to see the study physician. The investigator or study staff will call the patients on the day following injection to make sure there were no adverse effects to the injection. Patients will then come in for a Week 4 and Month 3 follow-up visit. At the Month 3 follow-up visit, if patients are not showing stability or improvement, they may be offered either thermal laser or Photodynamic Therapy. They will remain in the study and remain eligible for a repeat injection of Anecortave Acetate at the Month 6 visit.. Patients will then been seen at Month 6 for a Re-treatment Evaluation Visit. If their condition is stable, they will be offered re-injection with the same study medication they received earlier. If Patients ...
In order to improve the survival rates of children with retinoblastoma, a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach is essential, as is a listening ear for parents who may struggle with the difficult decisions facing them
Retinoblastomas are typically diagnosed before their third year of life. For the next 2 years, most ophthalmic examinations are performed under anaesthesia. The risks of sedation requires the examiners be both quick and thorough.. We have found 3DUS to be uniquely valuable for evaluation of retinoblastomas. This is because 3DUS includes the ability to replay and reconstruct ultrasonograms in standard, oblique, and coronal views. Therefore, one main advantage of 3DUS (compared to 2DUS) is that it allows for multiple interactive reviews of reconstructed ocular volumes (without patient contact or anaesthesia). It also allowed for the first ultrasound generated coronal views of the optic nerve.. These unique 3DUS capabilities become even more important when one considers the findings that have been associated with an increased risk for metastasis: tumour contact with the choroid, optic nerve invasion, and extrascleral extension.16 Unlike standard two dimensional ultrasound (2DUS), 3DUS offers the ...

Retinoblastoma (RB) is an intraocular cancer that affects young children. There is an ongoing effort to find new agents for RB management that are effective, specific and with few side-effects. In the present study, we tested artesunate (ART), a synthetic derivative from the herbal drug artemisinin, used in the clinic for the treatment of malaria. We analyzed ART cytotoxicity in an RB cell line (RB-Y79) and in a retinal epithelial cell line (hTERT-RPE1) by flow cytometric analysis (FCM). We related the effect of ART to the expression of transferrin receptor 1 (TfR-1, also known as CD71) by knocking down CD71 with RNAi and analyzing cell cycle variables by FCM. We found that the cytotoxic action of ART is specific for RB cells in a dose-dependent manner, with low toxicity in normal retina cells. ART is more effective in RB than carboplatin with a markedly strong cytotoxic effect on carboplatin-resistant RB cells. RB had higher CD71 levels at the membrane compared to normal retinal cells. We ...

The population of this prospective study included 23 consecutive children (11 males, 12 females). Patients ages ranged from 1 to 35 months (mean age, 11 months; median age, 9 months). Fifteen patients had unilateral retinoblastoma, and the remaining 8 had bilateral retinoblastoma. Patients clinical data were collected from inpatient and outpatient medical records of the referral center for retinoblastoma of our institution, including sex, age, affected eyes, and ophthalmoscopic data. Ultrasonographic data were available in 18 patients with 21 affected eyes. Three patients with bilateral retinoblastoma had already been submitted to enucleation of 1 eye before the admission to the department of ophthalmology. Parents gave informed consent for MR imaging and CT scanning in all the cases. The study protocol was approved by the ethics committee of our institution.. Two experienced ophthalmologists (T.H., S.D.F.) performed ophthalmoscopy, which always included careful examination of the ocular ...
Because of the hereditary nature of retinoblastoma, it is currently recommended that all siblings and children of retinoblastoma patients be examined under anesthesia (EUA) every 2 to 4 months during the first years of life. In the future, laboratory studies including karyotyping, Southern blot analysis, Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR), DNA sequence analysis/polymorphisms, and Esterase D reactions may eliminate the need to examine children under anesthesia. The aim of genetic screening in families with hereditary retinoblastoma is to identify those persons who carry a mutation and are at risk for tumor development. In 15 percent of families with hereditary retinoblastoma, the tumor-predisposing mutation itself can be detected using karyotyping or Southern blot analysis. When a detectable deletion is present, one can identify individuals carrying the mutation with over 99 percent accuracy. In the remaining 85 percent of families, no mutation can be found directly. However, in 95 percent of such ...
Intravenous chemoreduction is remarkably effective in controlling retinoblastoma, particularly in eyes with moderate or less advanced disease. In an analysis of 249 eyes with retinoblastoma, Shields et al5 found a six-cycle regimen of vincristine, etoposide, and carboplatin plus focal tumor consolidation successful in controlling 100% of ICRB group A eyes, 93% of group B, 90% of group C, and 47% of group D eyes. Chemoreduction has replaced EBRT in the management of retinoblastoma.. Side effects of radiation-related cataract, retinopathy, dry eye, and facial hypoplasia are avoided with chemoreduction. 5 Turaka et al6 recently reported on long-term follow-up of children with germline mutation retinoblastoma treated with chemoreduction and found that the risk for second cancers was notably low in this group at only 4%, compared with far greater historical risk for those treated with EBRT. In fact, the cumulative incidence of second cancers in 45 germline mutation patients treated with ...

The X-arrestin gene is on Xcen-q22, and consists of 17 exons with a promoter containing a TATA box and elements important for photoreceptor expression, including three CRX and one PCE-1-like element. In order to delineate the promoter structure necessary for the pan-cone-specific expression of X-arrestin, the expression of the gene in retinoblastoma cell lines was investigated, and a structure-function analysis of the promoter was conducted in the appropriate cellular substrate. Expression of X-arrestin was detected at a low level in the Y79 retinoblastoma cell ...

As with any cancer, prognosis and long-term survival can vary greatly from child to child. Every child is unique and treatment and prognosis is structured around the childs needs. Prompt medical attention and aggressive therapy are important for the best prognosis.. Continuous follow-up care is essential for a child diagnosed with retinoblastoma. In hereditary retinoblastoma, new tumors may form in either eye until the child is 3 to 4 years old. Children will need very close follow-up by an ophthalmologist. Children with hereditary retinoblastoma and those treated with some chemotherapies, radiation therapies, and some other therapies, are at higher risk for new cancers later in life and should have regular medical and eye exams.

Three patients with late recurrence of retinoblastoma were seen, which count for less than 0.01%. All of them were bilateral diseased at the time of first diagnosis, and underwent an enucleation of one eye by initial treatment. Considering the eye of recurrence retinoblastoma, all initial retinoblastomas were categorized in a different ICRB group and therefore underwent a different initial therapy. Patient 1 had an ICRB-A retinoblastoma wherefore laser- and cryocoagulation therapy was done. Patient 2 had an ICRB-D retinoblastoma and underwent 6 cycles of systemic chemotherapy. Patient 3 had an ICRB-D wherefore a percutaneous radiation therapy was done. Al tumours were inactive after first treatment. After respectively 5, 6 and 3 years of inactivity, in all of these patients a recurrence of the retinoblastoma was seen. This late recurrence was treated different in all patients: Patient 1 was treated with 6 times of intravitreal Melphalan injection and radiation therapy with Ruthenium, patient 2 ...
Retinoblastoma is caused by a gene mutation during cell division. In half of all retinoblastoma cases, there is no family history of eye cancer. However, if the gene mutation does run in the family, a childs chances of developing retinoblastoma increase substantially.. In most cases, children diagnosed with retinoblastoma are age 5 or younger, and it can occur as early as year 1. ...

Cancer occurring in infants often has a clinical and biological behavior that is different from cancers occurring in older children. The histological distribution of cancers in infants is different from that in older children. The five most common types of cancer occurring in infants in Taiwan are leukemia, neuroblastoma, germ cell tumors, central nervous system neoplasms, and retinoblastomas. Cancer in infants represents a unique situation in which to study cancer etiology. A significant number of infants with cancer have a genetic susceptibility to the disease; however, some emerging studies suggest a potential role for environmental, dietary, and drug exposures in the etiology of infant cancers. Further definitive trials will be necessary to establish clear associations, however. Because of their very young age and the immaturity of many of their physiological systems, the approach to treatment in young infants differs from that in older children. The infants response to treatment also differs from

Pineoblastoma (also pinealoblastoma) is a malignant tumor of the pineal gland. A pineoblastoma is a supratentorial midline primitive neuroectodermal tumor. Pineoblastoma may occur in patients with hereditary uni- or bilateral retinoblastoma. When retinoblastoma patients present with pineoblastoma this is characterized as "trilateral retinoblastoma".[1] Prognosis of patients with trilateral retinoblastoma is dismal, only a few patients have survived more than 5 years after diagnosis; all survivors were diagnosed with small tumors in a subclinical stage.[2] Lately, this disease was featured in headlines of several newspapers all over the world in a patient without retinoblatoma.[3] ...

N2 - It has been reported that replacement of a functional retinoblastoma (RB) gene in RB defective WERI-27 retinoblastoma cells results in complete loss of their tumorigenic potential in nude mice following s.c. injection. We have repeated the identical studies and found that although tumors did not develop s.c, the RB reconstituted cells, either soon after RB virus infection or after long term cultivation, consistently produced tumors when injected intraocularly. These tumor cells, when reestab- lished in culture, were found to retain a normal RB protein as determined by direct Western blotting and immunocytochemical staining. The tu- mors, however, occurred with a longer average latency period and with less frequency compared to ...

To determine whether the retinoblastoma gene (Rb) localized at 13q14, might be the target of recessive mutations in lung cancer, eight primary SCLC tumors and 50 cell lines representing all major histologic types of lung cancer were examined with the Rb complementary DNA probe. Structural abnormalities within the Rb gene were observed in 1/8 (13%) primary SCLC tumors, 4/22 (18%) SCLC lines, and 1/4 (25%) pulmonary carcinoid lines (comparable to the 20 to 40% observed in retinoblastoma), but were not detected in other major types of lung cancer. Rb messenger RNA expression was ...
In early December 2011, David Farmer, a 10th quarter student on Palmer College of Chiropractics Florida Campus, noticed a white reflection in the eye of his daughter, Callie. Later that same month, Callie was diagnosed with unilateral retinoblastoma in her right eye.
Patients with familial/heritable retinoblastoma (RB) are at increased risk of developing second malignancies throughout life, including a pineoblastoma (trilateral RB [TRB]) in early childhood. Current guidelines recommend regular surveillance brain imaging for those with heritable RB until 5 years of age. The presence of pineal cysts has been reported in patients with RB. Pineal cysts are thought to arise due to focal degeneration of the pineal gland and can be found incidentally. The finding of pineal abnormalities including cysts in children with RB on imaging is disconcerting, as it raises the possibility of an underlying malignancy, specifically a pinealoblastoma ...
Retinoblastoma is the most common pediatric eye tumor in the world. The Serge team at Kibuye Hope Hospital routinely diagnoses one new case per week.. In developed nations, nearly 100 percent of these children survive with modern treatments.. Until the team began treating Retinoblastoma in the spring of 2017, 100 percent of Burundian children suffering with this disease died. There were no exceptions. Thats not all-they died in one of the most horrific ways imaginable.. At first, parents might notice that their childs eye has a white pupil. As the tumor grows inside the eye, the eye pressure skyrockets and becomes excruciatingly painful.. Untreated, the tumor eventually erupts through the wall of the eye and grows into a giant, fungating mass protruding from the childs face.. All the while, the tumor is also growing deep behind the eye into the brain and can begin metastasizing to other organs.. It is a most unmerciful, undignified death sentence.. Because Retinoblastoma is so aggressive, it ...

With increasing use of indirect ophthalmoscopy and retinal imaging systems it is increasingly common to find pigmented and non-pigmented retinal or choroidal lesions in a routine eye examination. In the vast majority of cases pigmented lesions are benign choroidal naevi, but the alternative; a choroidal melanoma is a life-threatening, potentially-metastatic tumour that can sometimes be difficult to distinguish from a naevus.. Understanding which lesions to refer and which can be monitored is vital in providing good patient care. In this article we will review the prevalence, aetiology, differential diagnosis and treatment of the most common forms of pigmented fundus lesions and ocular tumours and offer advice on management for optometrists.. ...

Hundreds of mutations in the RB1 gene have been identified in people with retinoblastoma, a rare type of eye cancer that typically affects young children. This cancer develops in the retina, which is the specialized light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that detects light and color. Researchers estimate that 40 percent of all retinoblastomas are germinal, which means that RB1 mutations occur in all of the bodys cells and can be passed to the next generation. The other 60 percent are non-germinal, which means that RB1 mutations occur only in the eye and cannot be passed to the next generation.. In germinal retinoblastoma, an RB1 mutation is present in all of the bodys cells. For retinoblastoma to develop, the other copy of the RB1 gene also must be mutated or lost. This second mutation typically occurs early in life in retinal cells. Cells with two altered copies of the RB1 gene produce no functional pRB and are unable to regulate cell division effectively. As a result, retinal cells ...
Retinoblastomas, intraocular malignancies of childhood, can also be directly visualized within the eye during examination. With early detection, the cure rate for this tumor is excellent.

For Lovell resident Patrick Moen, 26, cancer was life threatening, but ultimately turned out to be life changing, too. Moen was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma at only six months old. As a result, he doesnt know what its like not to have cancer. He also doesnt remember what it was like to have vision because the disease rendered him blind in both eyes at an early age.. In spite of what some might see as a disability, Moen said he sees it as something that adds purpose to his life. That purpose is to inspire others on a spiritual level. His story is one of hope and faith.. According to the National Cancer Institute, retinoblastoma is relatively uncommon and accounts for about 3 percent of the cancers occurring in children younger than 15 years of age.

CHLA is a world leader in the research and treatment of retinoblastoma, the No. 1 malignant eye tumor in children. Retinoblastoma (or RB) is a childhood retinal tumor usually affecting children 1 to 2 years of age. Although rare, it is the most common malignant tumor of the eye in children. A common sign of this cancer is a white glow or glint in the pupil of one or both eyes.
Though this entire ordeal has been a nightmare, the silver lining is the support and outreach we have received from our community and organizations like NCCS who care.". "On September 11, 2014, our life changed forever when our 1 1/2 year old daughter Sophia was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma" said her mother Janai. Within hours of hearing that devastating news, Sophias family embarked on the four-hour drive to see a specialist in the field. "Our entire life was turned upside down," she said. Normalcy was replaced with exams under anesthesia, chemotherapy, cryotherapy and frequent trips to the specialists." Although both eyes are stricken with tumors, Sophias left eye has always been worse. Her cancer is very aggressive so doctors have recommended increasingly aggressive forms of treatment. Within the last year, Sophia has undergone over ten cryotherapy and five intra-arterial chemotherapy treatments to her eyes and systemic chemotherapy through a port in her chest to combat the ...
