*  Smoking Linked to Shorter Disease-free Survival in Stage III Colon Cancer - The ASCO Post
According to an analysis reported by Amanda Phipps, PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Washington and Assistant Member at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, and colleagues in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, patients with stage III colon cancer who ever smoked had significantly reduced disease-free survival compared with never-smokers.1 The association between smoking and reduced disease-free survival was most marked in patients with BRAF wild-type or KRAS mutant colon cancer. Prior studies have indicated that cigarette smoking is associated with a modestly increased risk for colon cancer, particularly after long durations or high levels of exposure.. Study Details. The study involved 1,968 patients with stage III disease from the North Central Cancer Treatment Group phase III trial N0147 examining FOLFOX (infusional fluorouracil, leucovorin, ...
*  Neratinib Improves Disease-Free Survival in Early-Stage HER2-Positive Breast Cancer - The ASCO Post
Patients with early-stage HER2-positive breast cancer who received neratinib as extended adjuvant therapy demonstrated improved invasive disease-free survival, with an absolute benefit of 2.3% at 2 years.1 However, these results of the ExteNET trial, previously presented at the 2015 ASCO Annual Meeting, are only part of the story. According to secondary data introduced at the 2015 Breast Cancer Symposium, certain subsets derived even greater benefits,2 including those with hormone receptor-positive disease and those pretreated with trastuzumab (Herceptin) sequentially.. "ExteNET is the first study to show a statistically significant improvement in invasive disease-free survival in the intent-to-treat population," said Arlene Chan, MD, of the Breast Cancer Research Centre, Western Australia, and Curtin University in Perth. "Furthermore, in the centrally confirmed HER2-positive cohort, we are ...
*  Dissecting the Bull: June 2008
In the first study, the primary endpoint was response rate, and secondary endpoints were time to disease progression, progression-free survival, overall survival and safety. This was met with patients receiving amrubicin demonstrating an overall response rate of 34 percent, compared to 3.8 percent of patients receiving topotecan and the median progression-free survival time for amrubicin patients is 138 days compared to 106 days for topotecan. In the second multi-center international study, patients with SCLC who were refractory to first-line platinum based chemotherapy were treated with IV amrubicin . The primary endpoint was response rate, and secondary endpoints were time to disease progression, progression-free survival, overall survival and safety. The overall response rate for the study was 17.4 percent with one complete response, ...

The treatment of Ph-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL) has entranced tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) era. Currently both imatinib and dasatinib are registered as the front-line treatment for Ph+ ALL, and the other 2nd-generation TKIs are suggested as an alternative for those who failed the first-line treatment. However, it remains unclear who could benefit from the 2nd-generation TKIs as the first-line treatment for Ph+ ALL. In this study we compared the efficacy and safety of the 1st and 2nd-generation TKIs in the front-line treatment of Ph+ ALL and found a trend toward better disease-free survival (DFS) in the 2nd-generation TKIs group, though no significant difference in early response and long-term survival between the two groups ...

*  All Bisphophonates Reduce Recurrence Risk the Same Amount
Bonefos and Boniva are pills taken by mouth. The zoledronic acid is given as an IV infusion through a needle inserted in a vein. The researchers wanted to see if one of the bisphosphonates would improve disease-free survival more than the others. Disease-free survival is how long the women lived without the cancer coming back. After about 5.4 years of follow-up, the researchers found that 88% of the women were living and had not had a recurrence. This rate was the same no matter which bisphosphonate the women got. When the researchers looked at the women by the type of breast cancer they had been diagnosed with, they found the disease-free survival rates varied slightly by cancer type. Still, when looking at individual cancer types, all the bisphosphonates offered the same benefits. The 5-year overall survival rate was 93%. This means that ...

*  Penny PayDay: Galena Bio (Nasdaq: GALE) NeuVax Phase 1/2 boosters improve disease-free survival at 60 month
Initially, patients in the trials were given a series of up to six inoculations of NeuVax dosed once a month. As the trials progressed, the physicians noticed that E75-specific immunity waned after this initial monthly Primary Vaccine Series (PVS) and translated to late recurrences of cancer in some patients. This declining immunity was identified by monitoring the level of CD8 T-cells in each of the patients. Through this evaluation, it became clear that immunological boosters would keep the level of circulating E75-specific CD8+ T cells elevated during the conduct of the trial. As a result of this finding, a voluntary booster program was added to the trials to maintain long-term immunity following the initial monthly PVS ...

In the Perifosine 228 trial, 1 patient achieved a partial response (objective response rate, 4%; 95% confidence interval, 0.7%-20%), and 11 patients (46%) had stable disease as their best response. The median progression-free survival was 14.2 weeks (95% confidence interval, 7.7-21.6 weeks). In the Perifosine 231 trial, 5 patients achieved a partial response (objective response rate, 10%; 95% confidence interval, 4.5%-22.2%) and 16 patients (32%) had stable disease as their best response. The median progression-free survival was 14 weeks (95% confidence interval, 12.9, 20.7 weeks). Overall, perifosine was well tolerated, and there were very few grade 3 and 4 events. The most common toxicities included nausea, diarrhea, musculoskeletal pain, and fatigue. ...

The treatment of children with rhabdomyosarcoma by a combination of surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy has resulted in an improved disease-free survival time. Of 11 children with regional disease eight (72%) remained well, with no evidence of disease, four to 36 months after diagnosis. Chemotherapy for one year with vincristine, actinomycin D, and cyclophosphamide was well tolerated during and after radical radiotherapy and surgery. The natural history of this malignancy has been altered in these patients when compared with that in a historical group of 17 children, only two of whom remain alive. There has been no serious short-term toxicity so far. ...

The size, stage, rate of growth, and other characteristics of the tumor determine the kinds of treatment. Treatment may include surgery, drugs (hormonal therapy and chemotherapy), radiation and/or immunotherapy. Surgical removal of the tumor provides the single largest benefit, with surgery alone being capable of producing a cure in many cases. To somewhat increase the likelihood of long-term disease-free survival, several chemotherapy regimens are commonly given in addition to surgery. Most forms of chemotherapy kill cells that are dividing rapidly anywhere in the body, and as a result cause temporary hair loss and digestive disturbances. Radiation is indicated especially after breast conserving surgery and substantially improves local relapse rates and in many circumstances also overall survival. Some breast cancers are sensitive to hormones such as estrogen and/or progesterone, which makes it possible to treat them by blocking the effects ...
