    ABSTRACT: Assessment of thyroid cartilage invasion (tumor extension through inner cortex) and thyroid cartilage penetration (tumor involving both the inner and outer cortices of thyroid cartilage) may be challenging with CT (Computed Tomography) and MR imaging (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) is a non invasive imaging modality that provides both anatomic and metabolic information. Quantitative data obtained from PET/CT, also known as PET/CT parameters, include maximum, mean or peak standardized uptake values (SUVmax, SUVmean, SUVpeak), metabolic tumor volume (MTV), total lesion glycolysis (TLG), standardized added metabolic activity (SAM) and normalized standardized added metabolic activity (NSAM). Our aim was to examine if FDG PET/CT parameters could differentiate thyroid cartilage invasion from penetration.

    ABSTRACT: We develop an exact approach for the determination of the minimum sample size for estimating a Poisson parameter such that the pre-specified levels of relative precision and confidence are guaranteed. The exact computation is made possible by reducing infinitely many evaluations of coverage probability to finitely many evaluations. The theory for supporting such a reduction is that the minimum of coverage probability with respect to the parameter in an interval is attained at a discrete set of finitely many elements. Computational mechanisms have been developed to further reduce the computational complexity. An explicit bound for the minimum sample size is established.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an increasingly common modality used with surgery for resectable brain metastases (BM). Objective: To present a multi-institutional retrospective comparison of outcomes and toxicities of preoperative SRS (Pre-SRS) and postoperative SRS (Post-SRS). Methods: We reviewed the records of patients who underwent resection of BM and either Pre-SRS or Post-SRS alone between 2005 and 2013 at 2 institutions. Pre-SRS used a dose-reduction strategy based on tumor size, with planned resection within 48 hours. Cumulative incidence with competing risks was used to determine estimated rates. Results: A total of 180 patients underwent surgical resection for 189 BM: 66 (36.7%) underwent Pre-SRS and 114 (63.3%) underwent Post-SRS. Baseline patient characteristics were balanced except for higher rates of performance status 0 (62.1% vs 28.9%, P < .001) and primary breast cancer (27.2% vs 10.5%, P = .010) for Pre-SRS. Pre-SRS had lower median planning target volume margin (0 mm vs 2 mm) and peripheral dose (14.5 Gy vs 18 Gy), but similar gross tumor volume (8.3 mL vs 9.2 mL, P = .85). The median imaging follow-up period was 24.6 months for alive patients. Multivariable analyses revealed no difference between groups for overall survival (P = .1), local recurrence (P = .24), and distant brain recurrence (P = .75). Post-SRS was associated with significantly higher rates of leptomeningeal disease (2 years: 16.6% vs 3.2%, P = .010) and symptomatic radiation necrosis (2 years: 16.4% vs 4.9%, P = .010). Conclusion: Pre-SRS and Post-SRS for resected BM provide similarly favorable rates of local recurrence, distant brain recurrence, and overall survival, but with significantly lower rates of symptomatic radiation necrosis and leptomeningeal disease in the Pre-SRS cohort. A prospective clinical trial comparing these treatment approaches is warranted.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose This study evaluated factors associated with increased risk of pulmonary toxicity (PT) from any cause in pediatric patients after myeloablative conditioning, using total body irradiation (TBI), followed by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Methods and Materials The records of 129 consecutive pediatric patients (range: 1-21 years of age) who underwent TBI-based myeloablative conditioning for hematologic malignancies at our institution between January 2003 and May 2014 were reviewed. Although total TBI doses ranged from 10.5 to 14 Gy, lung doses were limited to 10 Gy with partial transmission blocks. TBI dose rates ranged from 5.6 cGy/min to 20.9 cGy/min. PT was classified using clinical symptoms, radiographic evidence, and ventilatory defects on pulmonary function tests. Noninfectious (idiopathic) pneumonia syndrome (IPS) was characterized by patients exhibiting PT while demonstrating no signs of infection throughout the follow-up period. Results PT from any cause developed in 70.5% of patients and was significantly associated with increased transplantation-related mortality (TRM) (P=.03) and decreased overall survival (OS) (P=.02). IPS developed in 23.3% of patients but was not associated with increased TRM (P=.6) or decreased OS (P=.5). Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) significantly affected PT (P=.001) but did not significantly influence the development of IPS (P=.4). Infection was a leading cause of PT (75.8%). TBI dose rate significantly affected development of overall PT (P=.02) and was the sole factor to significantly influence the incidence of IPS (P=.002). TBI total dose, dose per fraction, disease type, transplantation chemotherapy, age of patient, sex, and donor type did not significantly impact overall PT or IPS. Conclusions A high incidence of PT was noted in this large series of homogeneously treated pediatric patients undergoing TBI for allogeneic HSCT. TBI dose rates affected overall PT and strongly influenced IPS. TBI dose rate is a contributing factor influencing pulmonary toxicity and rates less than 15 cGy/min should be considered to decrease the risk of IPS.

    ABSTRACT: Background: The last 3 decades have witnessed limited therapeutic advances in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) management. This study evaluated real-world trends in the use of systemic therapies and the impact on patient outcomes in the United States. Methods: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results-Medicare database was used to find patients diagnosed with SCLC between 1985 and 2005. The 1985-1990 period served as the baseline for a temporal analysis conducted at 5-year intervals (1985-1990, 1991-1995, 1996-2000, and 2001-2005). Cox proportional models were used to estimate the effect of chemotherapy on survival. Results were validated with a propensity-matched analysis. Results: There were 47,351 eligible patients: 52% were male; the median age was 71 years; and 87% were white, 7% were black, and 1.4% were Asian. The proportion of patients treated with chemotherapy was low but increased over time (38%, 55%, 50%, and 53%; P < .001). Race, diagnosis period, age, stage, and location of residence significantly predicted chemotherapy use. Females (51%), Asians (53%), and rural residents (60%) were more likely to receive chemotherapy. The median overall survival with and without chemotherapy was 9.6 and 3.6 months, respectively. Linear trend analyses showed a modest reduction in the impact of chemotherapy on survival for patients treated with chemotherapy versus untreated patients (hazard ratios [HRs], 0.59, 0.61, 0.64, and 0.62; P < .001) but an overall trend of improved survival for treated (HRs, 1.0, 1.03, 1.00, and 0.96; P = .005) and untreated patients (HRs, 1.0, 0.99, 0.94, and 0.92; P < .001). There was no survival difference between patients treated with carboplatin and patients treated with cisplatin (HR, 0.99; confidence interval [CI], 0.81-1.19; P = .875). Additional therapy beyond platinum-based chemotherapy was associated with a survival benefit (HR, 0.78; CI, 0.75-0.81; P < .001). Conclusions: Chemotherapy use was associated with a survival benefit in Medicare patients with SCLC treated in a real-world setting. Cancer 2015. © 2015 American Cancer Society.

    ABSTRACT: Background: p16 overexpression is a highly sensitive yet moderately specific biomarker for predicting human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC). Nuclear β-catenin translocation has been linked to HPV-positive OPSCC. However, whether the strategy of combining β-catenin with p16 can better predict HPV-associated OPSCC remains unknown. Methods: We evaluated the expression of p16 and β-catenin (nuclear and membrane) by immunohistochemistry staining in 101 OPSCC tissues and HPV status by HPV DNA in situ hybridization. Logistic regression models were used to evaluate single or multiple biomarkers for HPV prediction. The prediction power, sensitivity, and specificity were determined by receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analyses. Results: Our data showed that upon univariate analysis, p16 and nuclear β-catenin were positively correlated with HPV status, while membrane β-catenin was inversely correlated with HPV status (P < 0.01). p16 showed the highest HPV predictive power, with area under the curve (AUC) of 0.9074 compared to 0.6762 for nuclear β-catenin and 0.7635 for membrane β-catenin, respectively, indicating differential accuracies for HPV prediction. Multivariable analysis showed that p16 was significantly correlated with HPV, while nuclear and membrane β-catenin showed marginal significance. The three-biomarker model was similarly sensitive (98.9% vs. 100%) but more specific (88.9% vs. 81%) than p16 alone, which also showed a good predictive value for overall (P = 0.0002) survival and disease-free (P = 0.0158) survival. Conclusion: Our study suggests a novel model of combining p16 and subcellular β-catenin for prediction of HPV-associatred OPSCC, and this finding deserves further validation.

    ABSTRACT: B43-pokeweed antiviral protein (B43-PAP) is a high-affinity anti-CD19 immunotoxin that is capable of causing apoptotic death in B-lineage leukemic cells with a drug-resistant phenotype. B43-PAP exhibited in vivo antileukemic activity in preclinical studies as well as on a single-agent phase I clinical trial. This pediatric phase I/II study evaluated the toxicity profile and efficacy of B43-PAP immunotoxin in combination with standard induction chemotherapy in children and adolescents with relapsed CD19-positive B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). Pharmacokinetic profile and immunogenicity of B43-PAP were assessed. B43-PAP in combination with standard 3 and 4-drug induction chemotherapy was administered on days 9-13 and 21-25 of a 28-day treatment course with vincristine, prednisone, L-asparaginase, daunomycin, and intrathecal methotrexate. Thirty patients with relapsed B-ALL were enrolled on study CCG-0957. Grade III/IV nonhematologic dose-limiting toxicities were encountered in 4 patients evaluable for toxicity and included myalgias, motor dysfunction, pulmonary toxicity, and elevated liver transaminase. Dose-limiting toxicities occurred only with the 4-drug regimen. Fourteen patients achieved a complete remission at the end of induction among the 20 patients evaluable for response. B43-PAP in combination with standard induction chemotherapy can be safely administered and exhibits clinical antileukemic activity against relapsed B-ALL.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study is to characterize the changes in the incidence, presentation, surgical treatment, and survival of patients with appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (AMN) over the past 4 decades using nationwide cancer surveillance data. Patients with the diagnosis of AMN were identified in the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database. Information on demographics, disease characteristics, and surgical treatment was collected. Temporal changes in AMN incidence, characteristics of cases, and survival were analyzed from 1973 to 2011. Determinants of overall survival (OS) were examined using both crude and multivariable Cox proportional hazard models. The overall incidence rate of AMN increased on average 3.1%/1,000,000 persons-years (P<0.001). A significant decline in the age at diagnosis was observed (P=0.014). The proportion of patients presenting with distant disease at diagnosis also significantly increased (P=0.004). Five-year survival of patients with distant stage AMN increased at a rate of 3.5%/y between 1984 and 2006 (P<0.001). Median OS was not reached for localized and regional stage disease. Median OS for distant stage disease was 42 months. There has been an increase in the overall incidence of AMN with an observed increase in the proportion of younger age and distant stage at diagnosis. The OS has improved over time.

    ABSTRACT: In preclinical studies, the efficacy of the combination of antiangiogenic agents with chemotherapy seems to be dependent on the specific cytotoxic agent. We conducted a systematic review of the efficacy of bevacizumab in combination with taxane or non-taxane containing regimens for untreated, nonsquamous non-small-cell lung cancer patients. An extensive search of published clinical trials was conducted from electronic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane) and meeting proceedings using relevant search criteria. Phase 2 and randomized trials reporting on the efficacy of bevacizumab combined with taxane or non-taxane regimens were selected. A systematic analysis of extracted data was performed using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (Version 2.2) software. Clinical outcome in patients treated with taxane versus non-taxane regimen was compared using point estimates for weighted values of median overall survival, progression-free survival, and response rate. Twenty-nine studies reported between 2005 and 2015 were eligible. A total of 5890 patients (2767 and 3123 in the taxane and non-taxane groups, respectively) were included. The taxane and non-taxane groups were comparable in patient characteristics: median age, 62.8 versus 61.2 years; males, 57% versus 58%; adenocarcinomas, 83% versus 83%; stage IV, 87% versus 82%; performance status 0/1- 45/55% versus 41/59%, respectively. The weighted median overall survival was 14.4 versus 13.7 months (p = 0.5); progression-free survival was 6.93 versus 6.99 months (p = 0.61); response rate was 41% versus 39% (p = 0.65) for taxane and non-taxane groups. The outcomes between taxane and non-taxane regimens when given in combination with bevacizumab for patients with nonsquamous non-small-cell lung cancer are comparable.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the utility of dynamic, contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in combination with single-shot T2-weighted (ssT2) sequences in the differentiation of lipid-poor adrenal adenomas from non-adenomas. This retrospective study was approved by the institutional review board and is HIPAA compliant. Between January 2007 and December 2010, 46 patients with MRI demonstrating a lipid-poor adrenal lesion who underwent either surgical resection or a minimum of 24 months of imaging follow-up were identified retrospectively. All images were retrospectively reviewed in blinded fashion by two radiologists. Each adrenal lesion was categorized by dynamic enhancement features and qualitative signal on ssT2 images and was categorized as an adenoma if it demonstrated homogenous enhancement in the arterial phase, washout with capsule enhancement in the delayed phase, and T2 signal isointense to normal adrenal tissue. Any lesion that did not fulfill all the criteria was classified as a non-adenoma. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and accuracy for characterization of adenoma were calculated for each reader with 95% confidence intervals. A κ test assessed level of agreement between readers. Application of our criteria lead to an MRI diagnosis of lipid-poor adrenal adenoma with a sensitivity of 84.2-89.5% (16/19-17/19), specificity of 96.3% (26/27), positive predictive value of 94.1-94.4% (16/17-17/18), negative predictive value of 89.7-92.9% (26/29-26/28), and accuracy of 91.3-93.5% (42/46-43/46). Agreement between the two readers showed substantial κ agreement for the differentiation of adenoma from non-adenoma. Dynamic, contrast-enhanced T1-weighted three-dimensional gradient echo sequences in combination with ssT2 images can accurately differentiate lipid-poor adrenal adenomas from non-adenomas.

    ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND Although heregulin and human epidermal growth factor receptor 3 (HER3) are frequently expressed at high levels in patients with head and neck cancer, their prognostic value remains unclear. The authors explored the prognostic significance of heregulin/HER3 expression in patients with oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC), taking into account other HER family members as well as p16 status. METHODS Ninety-six primary tumor specimens from patients with OPSCC were retrospectively collected and analyzed for heregulin messenger RNA (mRNA) using in situ hybridization and for HER3, epidermal growth factor receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) using quantitative immunohistochemistry. Heregulin and HER3 mRNA levels were also examined among different tumor types using The Cancer Genome Atlas database. RESULTS High heregulin mRNA (> the median) correlated significantly with poor overall survival (OS) (hazard ratio [HR], 8.48; 95% confidence interval [95% CI], 2.17-33.17 [P =.002]) but not disease-free survival (HR, 1.52; 95% CI, 0.64-3.65 [P =.341]) in patients with OPSCC. Heregulin mRNA correlated negatively with OS in both patients with p16-positive (P =.049) and p16-negative (P =.091) OPSCC on univariate analysis. High HER3 (> the median) also correlated with poor OS (HR, 4.68; 95% CI, 1.47-14.90 [P =.009]) on multivariate analysis. Epidermal growth factor receptor levels independently correlated with disease-free survival (P =.025) and inversely correlated with p16 status (P =.012). In addition, The Cancer Genome Atlas data demonstrated that head and neck squamous cell carcinoma exhibits higher heregulin expression compared with other solid tumor types examined. CONCLUSIONS High heregulin mRNA and high HER3 protein levels were found to independently correlate with poor OS in patients with OPSCC. These data support targeting HER3 in patients with heregulin-high OPSCC and warrant further clinical investigation.

    ABSTRACT: Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms (AMN) are a rare heterogeneous group of diseases. In the absence of randomized trials, AMN management is controversial. The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) after cytoreductive surgery on survival in AMN patients. Patient data including demographics, pathology, type of therapy, and outcomes were collected from Emory University, the Ohio State University, and Wayne State University databases. One of the three centers did not use HIPEC. Statistical analysis evaluating overall survival (OS) of AMN patients was performed. Between 1990 and 2010, 163 AMN patients were identified. Histology showed 60 patients had diffuse peritoneal adenomucinosis, 88 had peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis (PMCA), and 15 had PMCA with indeterminate or discordant features. Complete surgical resection was achieved in 76 patients. HIPEC was used in 79 patients. The median OS was 77 months for patients who received HIPEC compared with 25 months for patients who did not (p < .001). In multivariable analysis, histopathologic subtype (p < .001), complete surgical resection (p < .001), and HIPEC (p < .001) were independent predictors for improved OS. A survival advantage for AMN patients treated at HIPEC-treating centers was observed (p = .0026). After adjusting for HIPEC therapy, no significant survival difference was observed between the non-HIPEC-treating center and the HIPEC-treating centers (p = .094). The addition of HIPEC to cytoreductive surgery likely provides a survival advantage and should be considered in the treatment strategy for AMN. ©AlphaMed Press.

    ABSTRACT: Appendiceal tumors are a heterogeneous group of diseases that include typical neuroendocrine tumors (NET, TNET), goblet cell carcinoids (GCC) and atypical GCC. Atypical GCC are classified into signet-ring cell cancers (SRCC) and poorly differentiated appendiceal adenocarcinoids. The prognosis and management of these diseases is unclear because there are no prospective studies. The aim of this study is to assess the characteristics and outcome of appendiceal TNET, GCC and SRCC patients. Appendiceal TNET, GCC and SRCC patients diagnosed between 1973 and 2011 were identified in the Surveillance Epidemiology and End. (SEER) database. Demographics, type of surgery, and clinicopathologic characteristics were collected. Survival functions were estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method, and log-rank test was used to assess the difference in overall survival (OS) among the three histologies. The SEER database yielded 1021 TNET patients, 1582 with GCC, and 534 SRCC patients. TNET presented at a younger age (P<0.001). Patients with SRCC presented with advanced stage disease (P<0.001). The median OS (mOS) for GCC and TNET patients was not reached; mOS for SRCC was 24 months. Multivariate analysis stratified for stage revealed significantly longer survival for TNET and GCC than SRCC (P<0.001). This is the largest report to date for appendiceal NET patients, suggesting a spectrum of diseases with different characteristics and outcomes. In this report, we present a treatment approach for this complex spectrum of disease, based on the experience of Ohio State and Emory University investigators.

    ABSTRACT: To save valuable time and resources in new drug development, Phase I/II clinical trials with toxicity control and drug efficacy as dual primary endpoints have become increasingly popular. Escalation with over-dose control (the EWOC) is a Bayesian adaptive Phase I clinical trial design that can accurately estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) level and control the probability of overdosing patients during the dose allocation phase. In this paper, we extend EWOC to Phase I/II clinical trials by controlling for under-dosing with a Gumbel Copula model to provide patients with at least minimum drug efficacy. We propose a utility function to measure the composite effect of toxicity and efficacy and select the optimal dose. To deal with the common issue that the efficacy endpoint often cannot be quickly ascertained, we employ Bayesian data augmentation to handle delayed efficacy and allow for flexible patient accrual without a waiting period. Extensive simulations demonstrate that the proposed new design not only provides better therapeutic effect by reducing the probability of treating patients at under-dose levels while protecting patients from being overdosed, but also improves trial efficiency and increases the accuracy of dose recommendation for subsequent clinical trials. We apply the proposed design to a Phase I/II solid tumor trial. Copyright © 2015. Published by Elsevier Inc.

    ABSTRACT: Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common form of lymphoma in the United States. DLBCL comprises biologically distinct subtypes including germinal center-like (GCB) and activated-B-cell-like DLBCL (ABC). The most aggressive type, ABC-DLBCL, displays dysregulation of both canonical and noncanonical NF-κB pathway as well as genomic instability. Although, much is known about the tumorigenic roles of the canonical NF-kB pathway, the precise role of the noncanonical NF-kB pathway remains unknown. Here we show that activation of the noncanonical NF-κB pathway regulates chromosome stability, DNA damage response and centrosome duplication in DLBCL. Analysis of 92 DLBCL samples revealed that activation of the noncanonical NF-κB pathway is associated with low levels of DNA damage and centrosome amplification. Inhibiting the noncanonical pathway in lymphoma cells uncovered baseline DNA damage and prevented doxorubicin-induced DNA damage repair. In addition, it triggered centrosome amplification and chromosome instability, indicated by anaphase bridges, multipolar spindles and chromosome missegregation. We determined that the noncanonical NF-κB pathway execute these functions through the regulation of GADD45α and REDD1 in a p53-independent manner, while it collaborates with p53 to regulate cyclin G2 expression. Furthermore, this pathway regulates GADD45α, REDD1 and cyclin G2 through direct binding of NF-κB sites to their promoter region. Overall, these results indicate that the noncanonical NF-κB pathway plays a central role in maintaining genome integrity in DLBCL. Our data suggests that inhibition of the noncanonical NF-kB pathway should be considered as an important component in DLBCL therapeutic approach. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
