RESUMO

The current study is a review of the literature on patients with diabetes who are diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC), encompassing recent research on CRC and the molecular level changes occurring in these patients on the basis of varying environmental as well as non-environmental factors. It has been noted that nearly 50% of all patients undergo the systemic treatment module; however, most of them exhibit drug resistance. In addition, targeted gene therapy has also been used in treatment but has been found to be effective only in patients with a specified molecular profile (or else this might lead to an increased risk of developing resistant mutations). This has led to increasing interest among researchers in finding innovative treatment options. Metformin, a biguanide, has been widely used in treating diabetes. The drug has been reportedly used in cases of hypothesis-generating retrospective population studies of diabetic patients showing reduced incidence of cancer. Metformin helps in reduction of excess insulin levels that possess various effects on cell signaling and metabolism. Nonetheless, there is need for an in-depth study on its molecular mechanism to fill any existing research gaps.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Irinotecan (IRI)-based and oxaliplatin (OXA)-based regimens are available for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Several studies have published inconsistent results in their comparisons of the efficacy and toxicity of IRI ±â€Šbevacizumab and OXA ±â€Šbevacizumab. This meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of these 2 regimens in patients with mCRC. METHODS: We searched several databases to identify relevant studies, including PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register. The primary endpoints were overall survival (OS) and time to progression (TTP). The secondary comparisons were overall response rate (ORR) and toxicity. In addition, the hazard ratio (HR) or risk ratio (RR) values with their corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were extracted from these studies. RESULTS: Pooled data of 13 studies demonstrated no significant differences in OS (HR = 0.96, 95% CI: 0.86-1.08, P = .53) and TTP (HR = 0.88, 95% CI: 0.72-1.08, P = .24) between the 2 groups. However, the ORR (RR = 0.87, 95% CI: 0.78-0.97, P = .02) was clearly improved in the OXA ±â€Šbevacizumab arm. Higher incidences of grade 3/4 nausea (RR = 1.63, 95% CI: 1.28-2.07, P < .001), vomiting (RR = 1.40, 95% CI: 1.09-1.81, P = .01), diarrhea (RR = 1.44, 95% CI: 1.23-1.70, P < .001), and anemia (RR = 4.13, 95% CI: 2.75-6.22, P < .001) were observed in the IRI group. However, the incidences of grade 3/4 neutropenia (RR = 0.75, 95% CI: 0.68-0.83, P < .001), thrombocytopenia (RR = 0.43, 95% CI: 0.26-0.73, P = .002), and paresthesia/neurological disturbances (RR = 0.04, 95% CI: 0.02-0.07, P < .001) were higher in the OXA group. CONCLUSION: This meta-analysis confirmed that the OXA ±â€Šbevacizumab regimen as a maintenance therapy significantly improved the ORR in patients with mCRC. Exhibiting strong efficacy and safety, the OXA and OXA plus bevacizumab regimens are preferred as first-line treatments for mCRC.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Aerial parts and seeds of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica) have long been used in traditional medicine such as Ayurveda for health-related purposes. Our interest in neem bioactives lies in their potential use as standalone anticancer agents, or as adjuvants to standard therapy. The aim of the present study was to explore a supercritical CO2 extract (SCNE) of neem leaf and a prominent liminoid in neem leaf, nimbolide, for epigenetic activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Human colorectal cancer cell lines (HCT116 and HT29) were cultured for 48 h in the presence of neem extract or nimbolide and evaluated for growth inhibition and evidence of suppression of histone deacetylation and DNA methylation. RESULTS: Both SCNE and nimbolide suppressed the proliferation of colon cancer cells by inducing epigenetic modifications. CONCLUSION: Neem leaf contains bioactive constituents which modify epigenetic activity.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer with the BRAF V600E mutation have a poor prognosis, with a median overall survival of 4 to 6 months after failure of initial therapy. Inhibition of BRAF alone has limited activity because of pathway reactivation through epidermal growth factor receptor signaling. METHODS: In this open-label, phase 3 trial, we enrolled 665 patients with BRAF V600E-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer who had had disease progression after one or two previous regimens. Patients were randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive encorafenib, binimetinib, and cetuximab (triplet-therapy group); encorafenib and cetuximab (doublet-therapy group); or the investigators' choice of either cetuximab and irinotecan or cetuximab and FOLFIRI (folinic acid, fluorouracil, and irinotecan) (control group). The primary end points were overall survival and objective response rate in the triplet-therapy group as compared with the control group. A secondary end point was overall survival in the doublet-therapy group as compared with the control group. We report here the results of a prespecified interim analysis. RESULTS: The median overall survival was 9.0 months in the triplet-therapy group and 5.4 months in the control group (hazard ratio for death, 0.52; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.39 to 0.70; P<0.001). The confirmed response rate was 26% (95% CI, 18 to 35) in the triplet-therapy group and 2% (95% CI, 0 to 7) in the control group (P<0.001). The median overall survival in the doublet-therapy group was 8.4 months (hazard ratio for death vs. control, 0.60; 95% CI, 0.45 to 0.79; P<0.001). Adverse events of grade 3 or higher occurred in 58% of patients in the triplet-therapy group, in 50% in the doublet-therapy group, and in 61% in the control group. CONCLUSIONS: A combination of encorafenib, cetuximab, and binimetinib resulted in significantly longer overall survival and a higher response rate than standard therapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer with the BRAF V600E mutation.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The aim of our study was to assess the predictive role of primary tumour sidedness (PTS) in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) harbouring wild-type RAS and treated with targeted agents. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The cohort included 178 patients treated with first-line chemotherapy plus cetuximab, panitumumab or bevacizumab. RESULTS: We observed longer progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with left-sided (L-CRC) compared to right-sided tumours (R-CRC) treated with anti-EGFR mAbs (p=0.0033 and p=0.0037), while there was no difference in patients treated with bevacizumab (p=0.076 and p=0.56). Finally, we observed longer PFS and OS in patients with L-CRC treated with anti-EGFR mAbs and those with R-CRC treated with bevacizumab compared to the reverse combination (p=0.0002 and p=0.011). CONCLUSION: PTS is a predictive factor for anti-EGFR mAbs, not for bevacizumab. Superior survival was observed when anti-EGFR mAbs were used for L-CRC and bevacizumab for R-CRC.

RESUMO

We investigated the incidence of thromboembolism in patients receiving combination chemotherapy with bevacizumab (BV)for colorectal cancer and examined its association with clinical factors. Between July 2007 and April 2014, 250 patients with colorectal cancer received combination chemotherapy with BV. Thromboembolism occurred in 24 cases(9.6%). Five predictive risk factors(platelet count B350,000/µL, hemoglobin <10 g/dL, leukocyte count>11,000/mL, body mass index B25.3 kg/m2, and D-dimer B1.44 µg/mL)were set based on a previous report, and the corresponding number of risk factors for thromboembolism and incidence of thromboembolism were examined. The results of multivariate analysis showed that the occurrence of 3 or more risk factors conferred a significant risk for the incidence of thromboembolism. Due to the increased risk of developing thromboembolism in such patients, special attention during management is required.

RESUMO

Grade 2 or 3 proteinuria was observed in 54 patients out of 158 metastatic colorectal cancer patients receiving anti-VEGF therapy. Patients with diabetes and hypertension were risk for severe proteinuria. ARBs were more frequently used in patients with severe proteinuria. However, they could not reduce proteinuria. The examination of protein/creatinine ratio was useful for continuing anti-VEGF therapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Liver metastasis in colorectal-cancer is a recalcitrant disease. To develop precision individualized therapy of this disease, we developed a patient-derived orthotopic xenograft (PDOX) model of colorectal-cancer liver metastasis. In the present report, we evaluated the efficacy of oral recombinant methioninase (o-rMETase) in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and oxaliplatinum (OXA) on the colorectal-cancer liver metastasis PDOX mouse model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Colorectal-cancer liver metastasis PDOX models were randomized into three groups of seven mice. Group 1, untreated control with phosphate buffered saline (PBS); Group 2, treated with 5-FU + OXA; and Group 3, treated with 5-FU + OXA + o-rMETase. RESULTS: The colorectal-cancer liver metastasis PDOX model was resistant to 5-FU + OXA (p=0.83 at day 15 of treatment, Group 2). In contrast, the colorectal-cancer liver metastasis PDOX model was arrested by o-rMETase combined with 5-FU + OXA (p<0.01 at day 15, Group 3). No significant body-weight differences were observed among the groups. CONCLUSION: The combination therapy of 5-FU and OXA with o-rMETase can overcome the resistance of first line drugs for colorectal-cancer liver metastasis.

RESUMO

Therapeutic regimens using monoclonal antibodies have been implemented in clinical daily practice for various gastroenterological diseases, for therapeutic strategies in gastrointestinal (GI) oncology, and infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. The main indications remain the therapy of chronic inflammatory bowel disease and in GI oncology. A new field has opened for targeted therapy with monoclonal antibodies of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. In the nomenclature of monoclonal antibodies, the endings of the substances indicate the production or degree of "humanization" of the respective antibodies ("umab": fully human, recombinant antibody; "ximab": chimeric antibody with variable murine domain). For chronic inflammatory bowel disease, monoclonal antibodies has been developed to interfere with molecular targets of the inflammatory cascade in the underlying pathogenesis (tumor necrosis factor­α, interleukin-12 and -23; α4ß7-integrins). The development of targeted therapies in the treatment of GI malignancies, monoclonal antibodies has been developed to interfere with substantial pathways of proliferation and apoptosis as well as neoplastic vascularization and neovascularization (e.g., vascular endothelial growth factor [VEGF] and VEGF receptor antibodies, epidermal growth factor receptor antibodies, HER2/neu antibodies). In the current review, we provide a summary of the current applications of monoclonal antibodies in the therapeutic treatment of gastroenterological diseases.

RESUMO

Stereotactic radiotherapy of oligometastases, mono- or hypofractionated, represents a fundamental change in the practice of the specialty as it was developed for a century. Despite the great heterogeneity of sites, techniques, and doses, most studies found a high local control rate, around 70 to 90% at 2 years, and reduced toxicity, around 5% of grade 3 at 2 years. Four main phase II and III trials are underway in France. Future research concerns the association of stereotactic radiotherapy with immunotherapy or different conventional chemotherapy protocols, the identification of the best clinical presentations, and optimization of fractionation and biological dose for poor prognosis localizations.

RESUMO

Objective: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Anlotinib as a third-line therapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Methods: Anlotinib was administered to patients with advanced colorectal cancer who had received ≥ second-line standardized treatment, with 12 mg daily lasting for 2 weeks and withdrawal of drugs for a week. The relevant clinical information and treatment protocols were recorded.The efficacy and safety of anlotinib were followed up. Results: A total of 26 patients were enrolled in the study group, and 24 patients could be evaluated, including 2 cases of partial response (PR) and 16 cases of stable disease (SD).The object response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) were 8.3% and 75%, respectively. The median progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) was 4.3 months (95% CI: 2.9-5.7 months) and 14.7 months (95% CI: 10.0-19.4 months), respectively. The most common adverse reactions were fatigue in 17 cases (17/26) and hand-foot skin reactions in 16 cases (16/26). Analysis of Kaplan-Meier revealed that without liver metastasis (95% CI: 11.7-32.3, P=0.011) and left-sided colonic cancer (95% CI: 11.7-46.1, P=0.014) were related to longer OS. Conclusion: Anlotinib as a third-line therapy for advanced colorectal cancer is feasible with high disease control rate and minor side effects.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: This is the fourth update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2002 and last updated in 2016.It is common clinical practice to follow patients with colorectal cancer for several years following their curative surgery or adjuvant therapy, or both. Despite this widespread practice, there is considerable controversy about how often patients should be seen, what tests should be performed, and whether these varying strategies have any significant impact on patient outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of follow-up programmes (follow-up versus no follow-up, follow-up strategies of varying intensity, and follow-up in different healthcare settings) on overall survival for patients with colorectal cancer treated with curative intent. Secondary objectives are to assess relapse-free survival, salvage surgery, interval recurrences, quality of life, and the harms and costs of surveillance and investigations. SEARCH METHODS: For this update, on 5 April 2109 we searched CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, and Science Citation Index. We also searched reference lists of articles, and handsearched the Proceedings of the American Society for Radiation Oncology. In addition, we searched the following trials registries: ClinicalTrials.gov and the World Health Organization International Clinical Trials Registry Platform. We contacted study authors. We applied no language or publication restrictions to the search strategies. SELECTION CRITERIA: We included only randomised controlled trials comparing different follow-up strategies for participants with non-metastatic colorectal cancer treated with curative intent. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: We used standard methodological procedures expected by Cochrane. Two review authors independently determined study eligibility, performed data extraction, and assessed risk of bias and methodological quality. We used GRADE to assess evidence quality. MAIN RESULTS: We identified 19 studies, which enrolled 13,216 participants (we included four new studies in this second update). Sixteen out of the 19 studies were eligible for quantitative synthesis. Although the studies varied in setting (general practitioner (GP)-led, nurse-led, or surgeon-led) and 'intensity' of follow-up, there was very little inconsistency in the results.Overall survival: we found intensive follow-up made little or no difference (hazard ratio (HR) 0.91, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.80 to 1.04: I² = 18%; high-quality evidence). There were 1453 deaths among 12,528 participants in 15 studies. In absolute terms, the average effect of intensive follow-up on overall survival was 24 fewer deaths per 1000 patients, but the true effect could lie between 60 fewer to 9 more per 1000 patients.Colorectal cancer-specific survival: we found intensive follow-up probably made little or no difference (HR 0.93, 95% CI 0.81 to 1.07: I² = 0%; moderate-quality evidence). There were 925 colorectal cancer deaths among 11,771 participants enrolled in 11 studies. In absolute terms, the average effect of intensive follow-up on colorectal cancer-specific survival was 15 fewer colorectal cancer-specific survival deaths per 1000 patients, but the true effect could lie between 47 fewer to 12 more per 1000 patients.Relapse-free survival: we found intensive follow-up made little or no difference (HR 1.05, 95% CI 0.92 to 1.21; I² = 41%; high-quality evidence). There were 2254 relapses among 8047 participants enrolled in 16 studies. The average effect of intensive follow-up on relapse-free survival was 17 more relapses per 1000 patients, but the true effect could lie between 30 fewer and 66 more per 1000 patients.Salvage surgery with curative intent: this was more frequent with intensive follow-up (risk ratio (RR) 1.98, 95% CI 1.53 to 2.56; I² = 31%; high-quality evidence). There were 457 episodes of salvage surgery in 5157 participants enrolled in 13 studies. In absolute terms, the effect of intensive follow-up on salvage surgery was 60 more episodes of salvage surgery per 1000 patients, but the true effect could lie between 33 to 96 more episodes per 1000 patients.Interval (symptomatic) recurrences: these were less frequent with intensive follow-up (RR 0.59, 95% CI 0.41 to 0.86; I² = 66%; moderate-quality evidence). There were 376 interval recurrences reported in 3933 participants enrolled in seven studies. Intensive follow-up was associated with fewer interval recurrences (52 fewer per 1000 patients); the true effect is between 18 and 75 fewer per 1000 patients.Intensive follow-up probably makes little or no difference to quality of life, anxiety, or depression (reported in 7 studies; moderate-quality evidence). The data were not available in a form that allowed analysis.Intensive follow-up may increase the complications (perforation or haemorrhage) from colonoscopies (OR 7.30, 95% CI 0.75 to 70.69; 1 study, 326 participants; very low-quality evidence). Two studies reported seven colonoscopic complications in 2292 colonoscopies, three perforations and four gastrointestinal haemorrhages requiring transfusion. We could not combine the data, as they were not reported by study arm in one study.The limited data on costs suggests that the cost of more intensive follow-up may be increased in comparison with less intense follow-up (low-quality evidence). The data were not available in a form that allowed analysis. AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: The results of our review suggest that there is no overall survival benefit for intensifying the follow-up of patients after curative surgery for colorectal cancer. Although more participants were treated with salvage surgery with curative intent in the intensive follow-up groups, this was not associated with improved survival. Harms related to intensive follow-up and salvage therapy were not well reported.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Oxaliplatin-induced chronic neuropathy is a prominent factor for dose reduction and not completing all cycles of chemotherapy for patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). The aim of the study was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and toxicodynamics of oxaliplatin-induced chronic neuropathy in CRC rats to ensure effective management. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A rat model of CRC was developed using 1,2-Dimethylhydrazine and dextran sulfate. Oxaliplatin (L-OHP) was administered intravenously to CRC rats every week. The pharmacokinetic profiles and tumor distribution of L-OHP and chronic neuropathies were investigated for over four weeks. RESULTS: The mean values of the area under the concentration-time curve for L-OHP showed a dose-dependent increase. Chronic neuropathy occurred from Day 14 in the 8 mg/kg group and Day 19 in the 3 and 5 mg/kg groups. CONCLUSION: These results provide preliminary information for the development of a pharmacokinetic and toxicodynamic model of L-OHP for CRC therapy cycles.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: TAS-102 is recommended as salvage-line therapy for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), but practical predictors for its efficacy are lacking. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a single-institutional retrospective study of 33 patients treated with TAS-102, we investigated the predictive value of the pretreatment neutrophil-to-lymphocyte (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte (PLR), and lymphocyte-monocyte (LMR) ratios for progression-free (PFS) and overall (OS) survival. Predictive ability using cut-offs of the median value (3.14) and 5 for NLR were compared. RESULTS: In univariate analysis, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance score, NLR, and PLR were negatively significantly associated with PFS and OS. The number of treatment lines was negatively associated with PFS. The NLR cut-off of 5 was superior to the median value. Multivariate analyses showed a significant prognostic impact for NLR at cut-off 5 (hazard ratio(HR)=6.26, p=0.02 for PFS; HR=6.97, p=0.07 for OS). CONCLUSION: The pretreatment NLR is a prognostic biomarker for patients with mCRC who receive TAS-102 treatment.

RESUMO

The cell wall skeleton of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG-CWS) is a bioactive component that is a strong immune adjuvant for cancer immunotherapy. BCG-CWS activates the innate immune system through various pattern recognition receptors and is expected to elicit antigen-specific cellular immune responses when co-administered with tumor antigens. To determine the recommended dose (RD) of BCG-CWS based on its safety profile, we conducted a phase I dose-escalation study of BCG-CWS in combination with WT1 peptide for patients with advanced cancer.The primary endpoint was the proportion of treatment-related adverse events (AEs) at each BCG-CWS dose. The secondary endpoints were immune responses and clinical effects. A BCG-CWS dose of 50, 100, or 200 µg/body was administered intradermally on days 0, 7, 21, and 42, followed by 2 mg of WT1 peptide on the next day. For the escalation of a dose level, 3 + 3 design was used.Study subjects were 18 patients with advanced WT1-expressing cancers refractory to standard anti-cancer therapies (7 melanoma, 5 colorectal, 4 hepatobiliary, 1 ovarian, and 1 lung). Dose-limiting toxicity occurred in the form of local skin reactions in 2 patients at a dose of 200 µg although no serious treatment-related systemic AEs were observed. Neutrophils and monocytes transiently increased in response to BCG-CWS. Some patients demonstrated the induction of the CD4 T cell subset and its differentiation from the naïve to memory phenotype, resulting in a tumor response.The RD of BCG-CWS was determined to be 100 µg/body. This dose was well tolerated and showed promising clinical effects with the induction of an appropriate immune response.

RESUMO

Heat shock protein 105 (HSP105) is overexpressed in many cancers, including colorectal cancer (CRC) and esophageal cancer (EC). We carried out a phase I clinical trial of HLA-A24- and HLA-A2-restricted HSP105 peptide vaccines in patients with CRC or EC. In this additional study of the trial, we examined the immunological efficacy of the novel vaccine. Thirty patients with advanced CRC or EC underwent HSP105 peptide vaccination. Immunological responses were evaluated by ex vivo and in vitro γ-interferon enzyme-linked immunospot assays and their correlation with patients' prognosis was analyzed. The HSP105 peptide vaccines induced peptide-specific CTLs in 15 of 30 patients. Among HLA-A24 patients (n = 15), 7 showed induction of CTLs only ex vivo, whereas among HLA-A2 patients (n = 15), 4 showed the induction ex vivo and 6 in vitro. Heat shock protein 105-specific CTL induction correlated with suppression of cancer progression and was revealed as a potential predictive biomarker for progression-free survival (P = .008; hazard ratio = 3.03; 95% confidence interval, 1.34-6.85) and overall survival (P = .025; hazard ratio = 2.72; 95% confidence interval, 1.13-6.52). Production of cytokines by HSP105 peptide-specific CTLs was observed at the injection sites (skin) and tumor tissues, suggesting that HSP105-specific CTLs not only accumulated at vaccination sites but also infiltrated tumors. Furthermore, we established 2 HSP105 peptide-specific CTL clones, which showed HSP105-specific cytokine secretion and cytotoxicity. Our results suggest that the HSP105 peptide vaccine could induce immunological effects in cancer patients and improve their prognosis.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: In this retrospective study, we aimed to investigate the efficacy of immune-cell therapy using T lymphocytes activated in vitro with or without dendritic cells vaccination (DCs), in combination with 1st-line chemotherapies in terms of the survival of patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 198 patients who were diagnosed with advanced CRC and administered 1st-line chemotherapies were enrolled in this study. The correlation between overall survival (OS) and various clinical factors was examined by univariate and multivariate analyses. RESULTS: Univariate analyses revealed that the prognosis was improved in CRC patients who received immune-cell therapy with PS 0, bevacizumab (BV), and capecitabine-including regimens (Cap). Finally, multivariate analysis demonstrated that PS=0, and the combination of immune-cell therapy and Cap provided a survival benefit in patients with advanced CRC. CONCLUSION: The survival benefit could be potentially obtained with better PS by the combination of immune-cell therapy and Cap as a 1st-line setting in patients with CRC.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of preoperative chemotherapy on the healthy, metastasis-free part of the liver in colorectal cancer patients with liver metastasis, and the relationship between chemotherapy and postoperative complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Our study included 90 cases of colorectal cancer liver metastasis resected after preoperative chemotherapy. The patients were divided into three groups according to the received chemotherapy regimen: 20 cases received mFOLFOX6, 54 cases a combination of mFOLFOX6 with bevacizumab, and 16 cases a combination of mFOLFOX6 and cetuximab or panitumumab. RESULTS: The mean numbers of sinusoidal injuries for each chemotherapy type were compared. The group treated with the combination of mFOLFOX6 and bevacizumab showed a lower extent of sinusoidal injury relative to other groups; this intergroup difference became increasingly remarkable as the number of chemotherapy cycles increased. Complications of various extents were found in all three groups, but no significant differences were observed between the three groups. CONCLUSION: In cases where preoperative chemotherapy was extended over a long period, combined use of bevacizumab was thought to be effective because of stabilization of disturbed liver hemodynamics resulting from sinusoidal injury suppression effects, allowing effective distribution of anti-cancer agents to tumors.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Pseudo progression is a noted phenomenon of immune checkpoint inhibitors therapy, which has been defined as a response after an initial enlargement of the tumor followed by tumor reduction. In July 2017, the Food and Drug Administration granted accelerated approval of nivolumab for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer patients whose tumor harbors deficient mismatch repair. PATIENT CONCERNS AND DIAGNOSIS: We present a patient who received nivolumab for heterogeneity of right-sided metastatic colon carcinoma. INTERVENTION: The patient was treated with nivolumab combined with chemotherapy. OUTCOME: The computed tomography showed mass lesion in the left lobe of liver remained stable while metastasis tumors under envelop of liver were exacerbated after 6 cycles of nivolumab combined with chemotherapy, and later regressed. LESSONS: The status of mismatch repair in primary tumor and metastatic liver carcinoma is contradictory but using nivolumab demonstrated encouraging efficacy. This is the first case of pseudo progression undergoing immunotherapy for heterogeneity of right-sided metastatic colon carcinoma.

RESUMO

Targeted therapy is a significant benefit in the treatment of cancer patients. Bevacizumab improves overall survival (OS) and progression free survival (PFS) in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). The clinical effectiveness of bevacizumab is similar to its efficacy in randomised controlled trials. However, the costs of bevacizumab treatment as well as other agents of targeted treatment are discussed between the health care payers, the regulatory authorities and the members of professional societies. Biomarkers of bevacizumab treatment helpful in the selection of eligible groups of patients are still missing. This review focuses on current bevacizumab therapy of mCRC from the pharmacoeconomic perspective. The cost per a 14-day bevacizumab treatment cycle is approximately 31,000 CZK in the Czech Republic. External published pharmacoeconomics analyses have no clear conclusions. Their results are usually expressed as the cost per QALY gained in comparison with a comparator. They differ according to the economic situation of the particular countries. The pharmacoeconomic results have to be confirmed in the real clinical practice, and then the decision should be reassessed by using the uniform methodology, e.g. the Health Technology Assessment (HTA).
