Awareness of symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer in a population of women and healthcare providers. - Clinical journal of oncology nursing
Awareness of ovarian cancer among women and healthcare providers is understudied. An early awareness of ovarian cancer may lead to early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer.The purpose of this study was to determine the level of that awareness among a sample of women and providers.Written surveys were developed by the authors based on available literature and were administered to women (n = 857) and healthcare providers (n = 188) attending or volunteering at a community health fair. Chi-square tests for independence and z tests were used for analysis.Healthcare providers were significantly more likely to identify the symptoms and risk factors for ovarian cancer. Forty percent of women reported being at least slightly familiar with the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Women who were familiar with symptoms were significantly more likely to identify symptoms and risk factors correctly and to report symptoms immediately to a provider. Identification of symptoms among healthcare providers ranged from 59%-93%. Identification of ovarian cancer symptoms and risk factors is poor among women, and knowledge deficits are present in providers. Increasing familiarity and awareness could lead to improvements in early diagnosis.
Randomized Phase III Trial of Gemcitabine Plus Docetaxel Plus Bevacizumab or Placebo As First-Line Treatment for Metastatic Uterine Leiomyosarcoma: An NRG Oncology/Gynecologic Oncology Group Study. - Journal of clinical oncology : official journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology
Fixed-dose rate gemcitabine plus docetaxel achieves objective response in 35% of patients with uterine leiomyosarcoma (uLMS). This study aimed to determine whether the addition of bevacizumab to gemcitabine-docetaxel increases progression-free survival (PFS) in uLMS.In this phase III, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, patients with chemotherapy-naive, metastatic, unresectable uLMS were randomly assigned to gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab or gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo. PFS, overall survival (OS), and objective response rates (ORRs) were compared to determine superiority. Target accrual was 130 patients to detect an increase in median PFS from 4 months (gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo) to 6.7 months (gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab). Treatment effects on PFS and OS were described by hazard ratios (HRs), median times to event, and 95% CIs.In all, 107 patients were accrued: gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo (n = 54) and gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab (n = 53). Accrual was stopped early for futility. No statistically significant differences in grade 3 to 4 toxicities were observed. Median PFS was 6.2 months for gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo versus 4.2 months for gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab (HR, 1.12; P = .58). Median OS was 26.9 months for gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo and 23.3 months for gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab (HR, 1.07; P = .81). Objective responses were observed in 17 (31.5%) of 54 patients randomly assigned to gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo and 19 (35.8%) of 53 patients randomly assigned to gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab. Mean duration of response was 8.6 months for gemcitabine-docetaxel plus placebo versus 8.8 months for gemcitabine-docetaxel plus bevacizumab.The addition of bevacizumab to gemcitabine-docetaxel for first-line treatment of metastatic uLMS failed to improve PFS, OS, or ORR. Gemcitabine-docetaxel remains a standard first-line treatment for uLMS.© 2015 by American Society of Clinical Oncology.
Comparative Surgical Outcomes for Endometrial Cancer Patients 65 Years Old or Older Staged With Robotics or Laparotomy. - Annals of surgical oncology
This study aimed to assess the safety of robotic surgery for older women undergoing surgery for endometrial cancer.A retrospective chart review of women undergoing surgery for endometrial cancer between October 2010 and December 2012 was conducted at the authors' institution. This cohort was divided by age (≥65 vs <65 years) and surgical approach (laparotomy vs robotic surgery). Postoperative morbidity and mortality were compared using standard statistical analysis.Of 228 patients identified, 73 (32 %) were 65 years old or older, and 98 (43 %) had undergone robotic surgery. Among the robotic surgery patients, women 65 years old or older had a higher Charlson comorbidity score (7.6 vs 4.9; p < 0.01) and were more likely to undergo pelvic lymphadenectomy (73 vs 39 %; p < 0.01). The complication rates did not differ between the groups except for increased urinary retention in the older group (15 % vs 3 %; p = 0.04). Older patients had a longer hospital stay (2.2 vs 1.3 days; p < 0.01) and a similar rate of discharge home (100 vs 96 %; p = 0.09). For the patients 65 years old or older, robotic surgery was associated with less blood loss (131 vs 235 ml; p = 0.03), a lower rate of ileus (0 vs 15 %; p = 0.04), a lower perioperative surgical complication rate (4 vs 30 %; p = 0.01), a shorter hospital stay (2.2 vs 4.4 days; p < 0.01), and a similar rate of discharge home (96 vs 91 %; p = 0.45) compared with laparotomy.Robotic surgery appears to be associated with less postoperative morbidity than laparotomy for endometrial cancer staging in women 65 years old or older. The complication rates after robotic surgery were similar between the two age groups.
Association between gelatin-thrombin matrix use and abscesses in women undergoing pelvic surgery. - Obstetrics and gynecology
To assess the association between the use of gelatin-thrombin matrix and the development of pelvic abscess during hysterectomy as well as factors associated with surgeons' use of this product.Data for patients undergoing hysterectomy for obstetric-gynecologic pathology were abstracted from databases at a tertiary hospital between 2009 and 2012. Open and minimally invasive hysterectomies were included and vaginal hysterectomies were excluded. Blood loss, surgery type, comorbidities, abscess formation, and use of gelatin-thrombin matrix were examined. Abscess was defined as a walled-off fluid collection (documented with computed tomography scan) with fever (greater than 38°C) or leukocytosis (greater than 11,000/microliter). Standard statistical models were used.Of the 413 patients identified, 213 (51%) underwent surgery for malignancy. Gelatin-thrombin matrix was used in 166 patients (40%). The overall rate of abscess was low (3%). In bivariate analyses, blood loss greater than 500 mL (odds ratio [OR] 3.9, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.1-12.9, P=.021], ascites (OR 6.5, 95% CI 1.6-26.1, P=.023), drain placement (OR 4.5, 95% CI 1.3-15.1, P=.009), and gelatin-thrombin matrix use (OR 7.0, 95% CI 1.5-32.9, P=.009) were significantly associated with abscess formation. Multivariate logistic regression revealed that only gelatin-thrombin matrix use predicted the development of pelvic abscess (OR 7.0, 95% CI 1.5-32.9, P=.013).We found that gelatin-thrombin matrix use was associated with an increased risk of pelvic abscess. Although these products are important in the setting of bleeding, these data suggest that the liberal use of sealants is not without risk.III.
Anti-ma2 paraneoplastic encephalitis in association with recurrent cervical cancer. - Journal of clinical neurology (Seoul, Korea)
Paraneoplastic neurological syndromes are rare, and although they are frequently associated with gynecological malignancies, cervical cancer is a rare cause. The symptoms of anti-Ma2 encephalitis are diverse and often present prior to the diagnosis of malignancy.We report a case of a 37-year-old woman with a history of cervical cancer presenting with unexplained weight gain and vertical supranuclear gaze palsy. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed lesions within the bilateral hypothalami and midbrain. Anti-Ma2 antibodies were eventually found in the serum, prompting a search for malignancy. Recurrent metastatic cervical cancer was found in the retroperitoneal lymph nodes.This is the first report of cervical cancer in association with anti-Ma2 encephalitis, and highlights the need for a high degree of suspicion in patients with a cancer history presenting with neurological symptoms. The symptoms associated with anti-Ma2 encephalitis are diverse and typically precede the diagnosis of cancer in patients, and should trigger a search for an underlying malignancy.
A phase II trial of intraperitoneal EGEN-001, an IL-12 plasmid formulated with PEG-PEI-cholesterol lipopolymer in the treatment of persistent or recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer: a gynecologic oncology group study. - Gynecologic oncology
The purpose of this phase II trial was to evaluate the toxicity and antitumor activity of EGEN-001 in platinum resistant recurrent ovarian cancer.Eligible patients had weekly IP infusion of EGEN-001 at a dose of 24mg/m(2). Toxicity and antitumor activity were evaluated using CTCAE and RESIST criteria, respectively. Co-primary endpoints were tumor response and survival without progression (PFS) for at least 6months. Survival without progression before going onto a subsequent therapy (EFS) for at least six months was also considered.A total of 58 EGEN-001 cycles were administered to 20/22 enrolled patients (median 2cycles, range 1-9). The most frequently associated adverse events related specifically to EGEN-001 treatment were grade 1/2 fatigue, fever, chills, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, anemia, thrombocytopenia, and leukopenia. Three of 20 EGEN-001 treated patients evaluable for toxicity elected to withdraw from the study motivated in part by grade 1 treatment related toxicities. There were no patients with partial or complete response (0%; 90% CI 0-10.9%). Seven (35%) of 16 patients evaluable for response had stable disease, and 9 (45%) had progressive disease. Six (30%) patients had a PFS of greater than six months, although three had gone off study and onto other therapies before six months. The estimated six-month EFS was 15%. The median PFS and OS were 2.89 and 9.17months, respectively.EGEN-001 at the dose and schedule evaluated was associated with some but limited activity and was seemingly less tolerated in platinum resistant recurrent ovarian cancer patients.Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

Retrospective analysis of survival improvement by molecular biomarker-based personalized chemotherapy for recurrent ovarian cancer. - PloS one
Aggressive tumors such as epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) are highly heterogeneous in their therapeutic response, making it difficult to improve overall response by using drugs in unselected patients. The goal of this study was to retrospectively, but independently, examine whether biomarker-based personalized chemotherapy selection could improve survival of EOC patients. Using in vitro drug sensitivity and patient clinical outcome data, we have developed co-expression extrapolation (COXEN) biomarker models for predicting patient response to three standard chemotherapy drugs used to treat advanced EOC: paclitaxel, cyclophosphamide, and topotecan, for which sufficient patient data were available for our modeling and independent validation. Four different cohorts of 783 EOC patients were used in our study, including two cohorts of 499 patients for independent validation. The COXEN predictors for the three drugs independently showed high prediction both for patient short-term therapeutic response and long-term survival for recurrent EOC. We then examined the potential clinical benefit of the simultaneous use of the three drug predictors for a large diverse EOC cohort in a prospective manner, finding that the median overall survival was 21 months longer for recurrent EOC patients who were treated with the predicted most effective chemotherapies. Survival improvement was greater for platinum-sensitive patients if they were treated with the predicted most beneficial drugs. Following the FDA guidelines for diagnostic prediction analysis, our study has retrospectively, yet independently, showed a potential for biomarker-based personalized chemotherapy selection to significantly improve survival of patients in the heterogeneous EOC population when using standard chemotherapies.
Gynecologic biopsy for molecular profiling: a review for the interventional radiologist. - Seminars in interventional radiology
The interventional radiologist is often asked to obtain multiple biopsies of gynecological malignancies for genetic profiling. This article reviews the current indications for gynecological biopsy as well as how the information gained contributes to a personalized medicine plan for the individual patient. The specific focus of this review is the current knowledge and practice of molecular profiling for gynecological malignancies.
Outcomes of women with atypical glandular cells on preoperative cytology and endometrial cancer. - International journal of gynecological cancer : official journal of the International Gynecological Cancer Society
This study aims to examine the prognostic importance of preoperative cervical cytologic diagnosis with atypical glandular cells (AGC) or malignant cells (MC) as a predictor of poor outcomes in endometrial cancer.A total of 563 patients were surgically staged for endometrial adenocarcinoma from 2002 to 2012 at our institution. Of these patients, 106 were included to perform a case-control study (39 patients with AGC or MC and 67 controls). Included patients were not significantly different from excluded patients and were matched for age, race, and body mass index. Outcome variables included presence of extrauterine disease (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage ≥II) and high intermediate risk (HIR) disease. Further analysis sought to improve the prediction combining AGC or MC with other factors, such as grade and CA-125 levels. Standard statistical analyses were used.Among the patients with AGC or MC, 53.8% had HIR disease compared with 30.3% with normal cervical cytologic diagnosis (odds ratio [OR], 2.68; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.18-6.09; P = 0.02). Extrauterine disease was found in 43.6% of patients with AGC or MC compared with that of 15.2% in patients with normal cervical cytologic diagnosis (OR, 4.33; 95% CI, 1.72-10.90; P < 0.01). Multivariate analysis confirmed that AGC or MC was an independent predictor of HIR disease (OR, 8.41; 95% CI, 1.34-52.78; P = 0.02) and extrauterine disease (OR, 4.78; 95% CI, 1.26-18.1; P = 0.02). The combination of elevated CA-125 levels with AGC or MC cervical cytologic diagnosis increased the statistical prediction of extrauterine disease (OR, 13.3; 95% CI, 3.1-56.8; P < 0.01) and HIR disease (OR, 5.83; 95% CI, 1.44-23.71; P = 0.02).Patients with AGC or MC on preoperative cervical cytology are at risk for extrauterine and HIR disease. These preoperative findings should warn surgeons of the potential of extrauterine or occult metastatic disease.
Risk-reducing salpingectomy as preventative strategy for pelvic serous cancer. - International journal of gynecological cancer : official journal of the International Gynecological Cancer Society
The systemic failure to detect early-stage ovarian cancer may be attributed to a significant amount of pelvic serous cancers arising from the fallopian tube rather than the ovarian surface epithelium. This article reviews the possibility of applying risk-reducing salpingectomy as a new paradigm for the prevention of pelvic serous cancer in both high- and low-risk women.
