Background: The ROSORC trial, a randomised, phase II trial comparing sorafenib plus interleukin (IL-2) versus sorafenib alone as first-line treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) failed to demonstrate differences in progression-free survival (PFS). Updated overall survival (OS) results are reported. Patients and methods: In this study, 128 patients were randomised to receive sorafenib 400 mg twice daily plus subcutaneous IL-2 4.5 million international units (MIU) five times per week for 6 weeks every 8 weeks (arm A) or sorafenib alone (arm B). OS was estimated with the Kaplan-Meier method and compared with the two-sided log-rank test. Results: After a median follow-up of 58 months (interquartile range: 28-63 months), the median OS was 38 and 33 months in arms A and B, respectively (P = 0.667). The 5-year OS was 26.3% [95% confidence interval (CI) 15.9-43.5) and 23.1% (95% CI 13.2-40.5) for the combination- and single-agent arm, respectively. Most of the patients who were refractory to first-line treatment were subsequently treated with different targeted agents; they had a median survival greater than expected. Conclusions: This outcome suggests a synergistic effect of the subsequent therapies following sorafenib failure. © The Author 2013.

Purpose: Palliative sedation is a clinical procedure aimed at relieving refractory symptoms in patients with advanced cancer. It has been suggested that sedative drugs may shorten life, but few studies exist comparing the survival of sedated and nonsedated patients. We present a systematic review of literature on the clinical practice of palliative sedation to assess the effect, if any, on survival. Methods: A systematic review of literature published between January 1980 and December 2010 was performed using MEDLINE and EMBASE databases. Search terms included palliative sedation, terminal sedation, refractory symptoms, cancer, neoplasm, palliative care, terminally ill, end-of-life care, and survival. A manual search of the bibliographies of electronically identified articles was also performed. Results: Eleven published articles were identified describing 1,807 consecutive patients in 10 retrospective or prospective nonrandomized studies, 621 (34.4%) of whom were sedated. One case-control study was excluded from prevalence analysis. The most frequent reason for sedation was delirium in the terminal stages of illness (median, 57.1%; range, 13.8% to 91.3%). Benzodiazepines were the most common drug category prescribed. Comparing survival of sedated and nonsedated patients, the sedation approach was not shown to be associated with worse survival. Conclusion: Even if there is no direct evidence from randomized clinical trials, palliative sedation, when appropriately indicated and correctly used to relieve unbearable suffering, does not seem to have any detrimental effect on survival of patients with terminal cancer. In this setting, palliative sedation is a medical intervention that must be considered as part of a continuum of palliative care. © 2012 by American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Purpose. Predicting prognosis in advanced cancer aids physicians in clinical decision making and can help patients and their families to prepare for the time ahead. Materials and Methods. This multicenter, observational, prospective, nonrandomized population-based study evaluated life span prediction of four prognostic scores used in palliative care: the original Palliative Prognostic Score (PaP Score), a variant of PaP Score including delirium (DPaP Score), the Palliative Performance Scale, and the Palliative Prognostic Index. Results. A total of 549 patients were enrolled onto the study. Median survival of the entire group was 22 days (95% confidence intervals [95% CI] = 19 -24). All four prognostic models discriminated well between groups of patients with different survival probabilities. Log-rank tests were all highly significant (p <.0001). The PaP and D-PaP scores were the most accurate, with a C index of 0.72 (95% CI = 0.70-0.73) and 0.73 (95% CI = 0.71-0.74), respectively. Conclusion. It can be confirmed that all four prognostic scores used in palliative care studies accurately identify classes of patients with different survival probabilities. The PaP Score has been extensively validated and shows high accuracy and reproducibility in different settings. © AlphaMed Press.

Prostate | Year: 2010

BACKGROUND. The efficacy of current therapy for hormone-refractory prostate cancer is still unsatisfactory and new agents and therapeutic modalities are needed. The aims of the present work were to examine the in vitro activity and mechanisms of action of different antitumor drug combinations in hormone-resistant prostate cancer (HRPC) cell lines. METHODS. The activity of docetaxel (Doc), cisplatin (Cis), oxaliplatin (Oxa), SN-38 and ST1481, singly or in combination, was assessed in different HRPC cell lines (PC3, parental DU145 and taxane-resistant DU145-R) by SRB test. Apoptosis was evaluated by TUNEL and ANN-V assays. Extrusion pump activity was studied by Hoechst 33342 assay, while gene expression related to drug efflux mechanisms and DNA damage repair was analyzed by RT-PCR. RESULTS. Doc induced a high cytocidal effect in the HRPC cells, whereas Cis, Oxa, SN-38 and ST1481 exerted prevalently cytostatic activity. Doc followed by ST1481 proved to be the most effective drug sequence among those investigated, producing an important synergistic effect (R.I. from 2.0 to 5.2) in all the tested cell lines. Moreover, this sequence induced a significant downregulation of xenobiotic extrusion pump and DNA damage repair gene expression. ST1481 synergistically increased the cytocidal effect of Doc, probably through a downregulation of extrusion pump activity and DNA damage repair-related genes. CONCLUSIONS. Our results show that the Doc → ST1481 sequence effectively reduces the cancer cell population and restores Doc activity in taxane-resistant HRPC, indicating its potential usefulness as first- or second-line treatment of hormone-refractory prostate cancer. © 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

The aim of this retrospective study was to detect early cardiotoxicity by speckle tracking analysis. We analyzed 2D and 3D echocardiographic datasets (2DE and 3DE) in 65 patients treated for breast cancer with anthracycline and trastuzumab. We compared the temporal variations of the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) obtained analyzing 2D and 3D datasets and of the strain values computed before, during and after chemotherapy administration. In addition, in a subgroup of 45 patients a complete echocardiographic examination was performed 6 months after completion of therapy. Cardiotoxicity onset definition varies depending on the method used to compute LVEF (16.9% by 2DE and 50.8% by 3DE). Thirty-three patients developed cardiotoxicity. Nine of them showed a reduction of longitudinal and radial strain values before LVEF reduction at the 16th week. Through 3D speckle tracking analysis early diagnosis of the cardio-toxicity onset seems achievable allowing the planning of cardio protective therapy without interrupting chemotherapy administration. © 2015 CCAL.
