RESUMO

PURPOSE: We evaluated the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab in patients with recurrent gynecologic cancers in real-world practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, single-institution study of patients with recurrent gynecologic malignancies treated with pembrolizumab. The primary endpoints were the objective response rate (ORR) and safety. RESULTS: Thirty-one patients treated with pembrolizumab were included. The primary disease sites were the uterine cervix (n=18), ovaries (n=8), and uterine corpus (n=5). Fifteen of the 31 patients (48%) had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of ≥2. The median number of prior chemotherapy lines was 2 (range, 1-6), and 14 of 31 patients (45%) had received ≥ 3 prior lines of chemotherapy. The overall ORR was 22.6%: specifically, 22.3% (4 of 18 patients), 12.5% (1 of 8 patients), and 40% (2 of 5 patients) for cervical, ovarian, and endometrial cancers, respectively. During a median follow-up of 4.7 months (range, 0.2-35.3), the median time to response was 1.9 months (range, 1.4-5.7). The median duration of response was not reached (range, 8.8-not reached). The median progression-free survival was 2.5 months (95% confidence interval, 1.7-not reached). Adverse events occurred in 20 patients (64.5%), and only 3 (9.7%) were grade ≥3. There was one case of suspicious treatment-related mortality, apart from which most adverse events were manageable. CONCLUSION: In real-world practice, pembrolizumab was feasible and effective in heavily treated recurrent gynecologic cancer patients with poor performance status who may not be eligible for enrollment in clinical trials.

RESUMO

AIM: To assess diseases outcomes and tolerability of real-life second-line nivolumab in a series of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) patients. METHODS: This retrospective chart review involved prospectively monitored patients (named patient program) treated with second-line nivolumab for mRCC at the University Hospital Centre Zagreb from February 2016 to March 2018. RESULTS: The study enrolled 30 patients, 5 of whom (16.7%) had a complete response. The mean ± standard deviation therapeutic response time to nivolumab treatment was 14.07 ± 8.92 months, with a minimum treatment duration of 2 months and a maximum of 24 months. The median duration of therapy was 17 months (mean: 15.8 months; range: 3-24 months), and 50% (n=15/30) of patients remained alive at the end of follow up. The most common adverse events associated with nivolumab were fatigue (26.67%; n=8/30), anemia (10.0%; n=3/30), adrenal insufficiency (6.67%; n=2/30: G1=1, G2=1), grade 2 pneumonitis (6.67%; n=2/30), grade 2 neuropathy (6.67%; n=2/30), rash (6.67%; n = 2/30: G1=1, G2=1), and hepatitis (3.33%; n=1/30). CONCLUSION: The present study indicates acceptable patient responses and tolerability of nivolumab in mRCC.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Aggressive variant of splenic marginal zone lymphoma (AV-SMZL) is a very rare disease that is often associated with TP53 mutations and has a poor prognosis. On the other hand, recent advances in genome sequencing techniques enable us to understand the molecular characteristics of rare cancers such as AV-SMZL. Here we present a case of AV-SMZL analyzed using a genetic test. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 66-year-old woman was admitted with splenomegaly and lymphocytosis. Computed tomography revealed marked splenomegaly without lymphadenopathy in any other areas. The serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) level was significantly elevated. Peripheral and bone marrow blood tests showed an increase in abnormal lymphocytes. DIAGNOSIS: A splenectomy revealed an SMZL pattern with increased numbers of large cells and mitotic cells and a high Ki-67 positivity rate, which led to a diagnosis of AV-SMZL. Although TP53 mutation was not detected, mutations in NOTCH2, NCOA4, PTEN, EPHA3, and KMT2D were identified. Among these, the mutations in NCOA4, PTEN, and EPHA3 were novel pathogenic mutations in SMZL, which suggests they may be related to the aggressiveness and persistence of the disease. INTERVENTIONS: The patient was administered a rituximab-containing regimen and rituximab-maintenance therapy. OUTCOMES: The patient continues to exhibit a complete response. LESSONS: This is a case of AV-SMZL in which a cancer panel test successfully detected genetic alterations that are potentially associated with its pathogenesis. These findings suggest that genetic analysis is useful for making diagnoses as well as for determining treatment strategies in AV-SMZL.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Patients with relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) have poor prognosis. Many patients are not eligible for 2nd HSCT due to organ dysfunction or other complications that prevent them from tolerating conditioning chemotherapy. In those ineligible patients for 2nd HSCT with myeloablative conditioning regimen, reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) are often used. RIC regimens are less toxic but has a less direct anti-tumor efficacy so that RIC regimens are not suitable for the patients with high tumor burden. To overcome this dilemma, Gemtuzumab Ozogamicin (GO) has been used as a part of RIC regimens to add anti-tumor efficacy. We report here a relapsed AML patient who was treated with GO monotherapy followed by stem cell infusion. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 25-year-old male with AML experienced relapse 9 months after allo-HSCT. DIAGNOSIS: Since he had mild renal and cardiac dysfunction and his AML did not progress rapidly, we decided not to give him an intensive chemotherapy. However, after azacitidine (AZA) and donor lymphocyte infusion therapy, his leukemic blasts did not decrease. INTERVENTIONS: Originally, we had planned to proceed with a 2nd allo-HSCT with RIC regimen that consisted of fludarabine, melphalan and fractionated GO (3 mg/m/dose) on day -21, -18, and -15. However, the patient developed appendicitis after the last dose of GO when his neutrophil was 0 cells/µl. Based on his medical acuity, we terminated the rest of the patients conditioning regimen and the patient did not receive any further chemotherapeutics. The patient was still infused with peripheral blood stem cells from the donor on day 0. OUTCOMES: His appendicitis was resolved by antibiotics without surgery. His AML has been in CR more than 18 months under AZA maintenance therapy. LESSONS: GO monotherapy could be a conditioning regimen of 2nd allo HSCT from the same donor as the first HSCT for relapsed AML patients.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Immunotherapy and targeted therapy have attracted widespread attention in current clinical research, which could be considered as a good therapeutic option for treatment of refractory liver cancer. PATIENT CONCERNS: The patient was a 37-year-old man with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. He was presented with hepatalgia and discomfort. DIAGNOSIS: The computed tomography showed multiple intrahepatic masses, indicating primary liver cancer with multiple intrahepatic metastases. INTERVENTIONS: After failed transarterial chemoembolization therapy, he was initially treated with immunotherapy pembrolizumab plus angiogenesis inhibitor lenvatinib, and after 3 months of treatment, the condition improved. However, the disease subsequently progressed. The next-generation sequencing identified a BRCA2 germline mutation in this patient. A poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor, olaparib, plus nivolumab therapy was started and achieved stable disease. OUTCOMES: The patient achieved stable disease and improvement in hepatalgia for 3 months after the combination treatment of Olaparib and nivolumab. CONCLUSION: We identified a BRCA2 germline mutation in a patient with liver cancer. Our findings could offer an alternative management for patients with liver cancer harboring germline BRCA2 mutation.

RESUMO

Since 2013, trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) has been widely used in Japan to treat patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC) who were previously administered trastuzumab and a taxane. However, there is no information about the treatment outcomes after exposure to T-DM1 in Japanese patients with HER2-positive MBC. In this study, we aimed to describe the survival outcomes of patients with HER2-positive MBC who received a treatment following T-DM1 and clarify the predictive factors of their prognosis.We retrospectively identified patients with HER2-positive MBC who received T-DM1 between April 1, 2014, and December 31, 2018, at the National Cancer Center Hospital, and focused on the population that received another line of therapy following T-DM1 discontinuation.Thirty patients were available for the outcome analysis. Median progression-free survival (PFS) of the first subsequent therapy was 6.0 months [95% confidence interval (95% CI) 4.1-6.4], whereas the median overall survival (OS) from the first subsequent therapy was 20.6 months (95% CI 13.5 months to not reached). We divided the patients into 2 groups according to their PFS with T-DM1 treatment and compared their PFS with the subsequent therapy. The results revealed a significant difference in the median PFS with the first subsequent treatment between patients with the PFS of less than and more than 3 months [5.1 (95% CI 1.7-6.2) vs 6.2 (95% CI 4.0-11.3) months, P = .03].This is the first study to evaluate the survival outcomes of post-T-DM1 therapy in Japanese patients with HER2-positive MBC. A short PFS with T-DM1 might affect the PFS with a treatment after T-DM1.

RESUMO

In an asymptomatic 77-yearold woman, former 55 packyears smoker, a routine X-ray showed a 45-mm superior left lobe lesion. A chest CT scan confirmed a 36-mm superior left lobe lesion and an aortic-pulmonary lymph node enlargement measuring 42 mm, suspicious for neoplasia. A PET-CT scan showed an elevated uptake in the primary lesion, in the aortic-pulmonary lymph node, and in the left hilar lymph node with a standardized uptake value - 40 and 4.3, respectively. CT-guided lung biopsy showed a lung squamous cell carcinoma. An endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration for lymph-node staging was negative for lymph node spread. Brain MRI was negative. Final staging was determined to be a IIIA (T2bN2) squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.

RESUMO

The phase III West Japan Oncology Group (WJOG) 4407G study showed noninferiority of folinic acid, bolus/continuous fluorouracil, and irinotecan plus bevacizumab to modified folinic acid, bolus/continuous fluorouracil, and oxaliplatin 6 plus bevacizumab in progression-free survival (PFS) as first-line chemotherapy for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive and prognostic value of morphologic response in patients with colorectal liver metastases (CLM) as a post hoc analysis of the WJOG4407G study.Morphologic response was assessed by comparing contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) images at baseline and week 8. Three blinded radiologists evaluated CT images and classified their response as optimal, incomplete, or no response according to the morphologic criteria. Response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST) response, early tumor shrinkage (ETS), and depth of response (DpR) were also evaluated.Among 395 patients who were eligible for efficacy analysis in the WJOG4407G study, 70 patients had liver-limited disease. We finally evaluated 55 of these patients. Optimal morphologic response was identified in 19 of 55 patients (34.5%). The median PFS was 10.7 months for patients with optimal response and 10.1 months in those with incomplete/no response (log-rank, P = .96). The median overall survival (OS) was 26.2 and 35.5 months, respectively (log-rank, P = .062). According to univariate analysis, morphologic response was not associated with PFS or OS, whereas RECIST response was significantly associated with both PFS and OS, with ETS and DpR being associated with significantly longer PFS.Morphologic response might be neither a predictive nor a prognostic factor in patients with CLM undergoing chemotherapy containing bevacizumab, whereas RECIST response was significantly associated with both PFS and OS.

RESUMO

Tumor extracellular matrix has been associated with drug resistance and immune suppression. Here, proteomic and RNA profiling reveal increased collagen levels in lung tumors resistant to PD-1/PD-L1 blockade. Additionally, elevated collagen correlates with decreased total CD8+ T cells and increased exhausted CD8+ T cell subpopulations in murine and human lung tumors. Collagen-induced T cell exhaustion occurs through the receptor LAIR1, which is upregulated following CD18 interaction with collagen, and induces T cell exhaustion through SHP-1. Reduction in tumor collagen deposition through LOXL2 suppression increases T cell infiltration, diminishes exhausted T cells, and abrogates resistance to anti-PD-L1. Abrogating LAIR1 immunosuppression through LAIR2 overexpression or SHP-1 inhibition sensitizes resistant lung tumors to anti-PD-1. Clinically, increased collagen, LAIR1, and TIM-3 expression in melanoma patients treated with PD-1 blockade predict poorer survival and response. Our study identifies collagen and LAIR1 as potential markers for immunotherapy resistance and validates multiple promising therapeutic combinations.

RESUMO

TGF-ß1, ß2 and ß3 bind a common receptor to exert vastly diverse effects in cancer, supporting either tumor progression by favoring metastases and inhibiting anti-tumor immunity, or tumor suppression by inhibiting malignant cell proliferation. Global TGF-ß inhibition thus bears the risk of undesired tumor-promoting effects. We show that selective blockade of TGF-ß1 production by Tregs with antibodies against GARP:TGF-ß1 complexes induces regressions of mouse tumors otherwise resistant to anti-PD-1 immunotherapy. Effects of combined GARP:TGF-ß1/PD-1 blockade are immune-mediated, do not require FcγR-dependent functions and increase effector functions of anti-tumor CD8+ T cells without augmenting immune cell infiltration or depleting Tregs within tumors. We find GARP-expressing Tregs and evidence that they produce TGF-ß1 in one third of human melanoma metastases. Our results suggest that anti-GARP:TGF-ß1 mAbs, by selectively blocking a single TGF-ß isoform emanating from a restricted cellular source exerting tumor-promoting activity, may overcome resistance to PD-1/PD-L1 blockade in patients with cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) brings hope to many late-stage cancer patients yet its marker for response remains elusive. METHODS: We developed a hypothesis that treatment-related adverse events (TrAEs) could predict objective response rate (ORR) to ICB. We plotted ORR against corresponding any and grade 3 to 5 (G3-5) TrAEs across a variety of cancer types by performing a meta-analysis using linear regression. RESULTS: We identified 113 eligible studies encompassing 25 types of malignancies that were treated with ICB or ICB-based regimes. A significant linear correlation was observed for any and severe TrAEs, respectively. The correlation coefficient was 0.57 (r = 0.324) for any TrAE and 0.61 (r = 0.37) for G3-5 TrAE. For melanoma, the correlation coefficient was 0.81 (r = 0.57) for any TrAE and 0.65 (r = 0.42) for G3-5 TrAEs. For RCC, the correlation coefficient was 0.86 (r = 0.74) for any TrAE and 0.91 (r = 0.83) for G3-5 TrAE. For NSCLC, the correlation coefficient was 0.55 (r = 0.3) for any TrAE and 0.74 (r = 0.86) for G3-5 TrAE. For UC, the correlation coefficient was 0.47 (r = 0.68) for any TrAE and 0.27 (r = 0.52) for G3-5 TrAE, yet the correlation was insignificant for severe AEs. CONCLUSION: Our findings suggest that over half of ICB responses could be reflected by any adverse events and ∼60% of responses could be reflected by severe AEs. Further validation is needed in individual trials.

RESUMO

Notable advances have been achieved in the treatment of cancer since the advent of immunotherapy, and immune checkpoint inhibitors have shown clinical benefit across a wide variety of tumour types. Nevertheless, most patients still progress on these treatments, highlighting the importance of unravelling the underlying mechanisms of primary resistance to immunotherapy. A well described biomarker of non-responsiveness to immune checkpoint inhibitors is the absence or low presence of lymphocytes in the tumour microenvironment, so-called cold tumours. There are five mechanisms of action that have the potential to turn cold tumours into so-called hot and inflamed tumours, hence increasing the tumour's responsiveness to immunotherapy-increasing local inflammation, neutralising immunosuppression at the tumour site, modifying the tumour vasculature, targeting the tumour cells themselves, or increasing the frequency of tumour-specific T cells. In this Review, we discuss preclinical data that serves as the basis for ongoing immunotherapy clinical trials for the treatment of non-immunoreactive tumours, as well as reviewing clinical and translational data where available. We explain how improving our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of primary resistance to immunotherapy will help elucidate an increasingly granular view of the tumour microenvironment cellular composition, functional status, and cellular localisation, with the goal of further therapy refinement.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The prolactin receptor (PRLR) is implicated in the tumorigenesis of breast and prostate cancers where it drives cell proliferation, survival, and migration. LFA102 is a humanized monoclonal antibody against PRLR with promising preclinical antitumor activity. To determine the maximum tolerated dose or a recommended dose, and to delineate the pharmacokinetic profile of LFA102 in Japanese patients, we conducted a phase I study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: LFA102 was intravenously infused every 4 weeks to patients with advanced breast or castration-resistant prostate cancer, and the dose increased from 3 to 40 mg/kg. RESULTS: Fourteen patients were treated, and toxicities were reported in 9 (64%) patients. They were all grade 1 or 2, and the most frequently observed toxicity was nausea (3 patients, 21%). No dose-limiting toxicities were observed. LFA102 did not show antitumor activity as a single agent. CONCLUSION: Treatment with LFA102 was well tolerated.

BACKGROUND/AIM: The treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (R/M HNSCC) has remained challenging. The effect of salvage chemotherapy (SCT) after nivolumab has been identified recently in other cancer types. The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of SCT after nivolumab treatment in patients with R/M HNSCC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted at four institutions in Japan. Fifty-six patients were enrolled in the study. RESULTS: The overall survival (OS) in SCT patients was significantly longer than that in best supportive care (BSC) patients. In the SCT patients, the median OS, median progression-free survival (PFS) and objective response rate (ORR) were 7.3 months, 2.3 months and 36%, respectively. Prognostic factor for OS and ORR was performance score (PS) and previous radiation, respectively. CONCLUSION: SCT after nivolumab is associated with better clinical outcomes in patients with R/M HNSCC compared to those receiving BSC.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Experimental studies have shown that celecoxib is related to the downregulation of Tregs and an increase in the therapeutic efficacy of PD-1 inhibitors; however, such effect has not been shown in human cancers. Our report confirmed the synergistic effect of celecoxib with a PD-1 inhibitor. CASE REPORT: A 57-year-old male with advanced pulmonary adenocarcinoma was treated with nivolumab monotherapy as 5th line sequential treatment. Although the patient experienced tumor remission, regrowth of the primary tumor was observed and he complained of lumbar pain. Therefore, celecoxib (400 mg/day) was initiated without cessation of nivolumab. Chest radiography revealed a marked shrinkage of the primary site, with a decreasing trend of carcinoma embryonic antigen. CONCLUSION: This is the report of a case of recovery of sensitivity to nivolumab by additional treatment with celecoxib.

RESUMO

Background: Little is known about the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) course and outcomes in patients receiving immunotherapy. Here we describe a metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma patient with a severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection while receiving pembrolizumab. Case presentation: A 66-year-old man, with a metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma receiving pembrolizumab, presented with fever. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed pulmonary ground-glass opacities, suggesting viral or immuno-related etiology. On day 7, the patient was hospitalized due to dyspnea and worsening of the radiological findings. Real time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing confirmed COVID-19. The patient developed acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute kidney injury. Hydroxychloroquine was administered for 5 days, but discontinued after supraventricular extrasystoles. Clinical improvement allowed the patient's discharge after 81 days of hospitalization. Conclusion: A careful evaluation of oncologic patients receiving immunotherapy during the COVID-19 pandemic is of utmost importance.

RESUMO

Aim: Evaluating the incidence and course of COVID-19 in cancer patients treated with immunotherapy. Patients & methods: We reported the influenza-like illness events with diagnosis of COVID-19 within the patient cohort enrolled in the prospective observational multicenter INVIDIa-2 study in the single center of Parma. Results: Among 53 patients, eight experienced influenza-like illness during the influenza season 2019/2020, and three of them had diagnosis of COVID-19. They were males, elderly, with cardiovascular disease. Radiological features of COVID-19 pneumonitis were found in all of three cases, although the pharyngeal swab resulted positive in only two. Two of these three patients died due to respiratory failure. Conclusion: Cancer patients are at high risk of severe events from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.

RESUMO

To report a multi-institutional case series of patients with advanced microsatellite instability high (MSI-H) prostate adenocarcinoma identified with clinical cell-free DNA (cfDNA) next-generation sequencing (NGS) testing and treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors. Retrospective analysis of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and MSI-H tumor detected by a commercially available cfDNA NGS assay Guardant360 (G360, Guardant Health) at eight different Academic Institutions in the USA, from September 2018 to April 2020. From a total of 14 MSI-H metastatic prostate cancer patients at participating centers, nine patients with mCRPC with 56% bone, 33% nodal, 11% liver and 11% soft-tissue metastases and a median PSA of 29.3 ng/dL, were treated with pembrolizumab after 2 lines of therapy for CRPC. The estimated median time on pembrolizumab was 9.9 (95% CI 1.0 to 18.8) months. Four patients (44%) achieved PSA50 after a median of 4 (3-12) weeks after treatment initiation including three patients with >99% PSA decline. Among the patients evaluable for radiographic response (n=5), the response rate was 60% with one complete response and two partial responses. Best response was observed after a median of 3.3 (1.4-7.6) months. At time of cut-off, four patients were still on pembrolizumab while four patients discontinued therapy due to progressive disease and one due to COVID-19 infection. Half of the patients with PSA50 had both MSI-H and pathogenic alterations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 in their G360 assays. The use of liquid biopsy to identify metastatic prostate cancer patients with MSI-H is feasible in clinical practice and may overcome some of the obstacles associated with prostate cancer tumor tissue testing. The robust activity of pembrolizumab in selected patients supports the generalized testing for MSI-H.
