RESUMO

Introducción La quimioterapia neoadyuvante (QTn) es una herramienta de uso cada vez más frecuente en el tratamiento del cáncer de mama. su repercusión es objetivada a partir de parámetros clínicos (examen físico y estudios por imagen) y parámetros anatomo-patológicos sobre la pieza quirúrgica. Existe variabilidad en el impacto de la Qt según el subtipo molecular. Este estudio evalúa el grado de respuesta (clínica y patológica) a la QTn de las pacientes con cáncer de mama subtipo luminal y la tasa de cirugías conservadoras en este subgrupo. Objetivo Describir la tasa de respuesta clínica y patológica obtenida en el subgrupo de pacientes luminales y evaluar la tasa de conversión a cirugía conservadora luego del tratamiento neoadyuvante. Material y método Se analizaron 220 historias clínicas pertenecientes a pacientes que realizaron neoadyuvancia en el periodo 2014-2017 en el Servicio de Patología Mamaria del Hospital Oncológico Marie Curie. Se incluyeron 78 pacientes con diagnóstico de carcinoma invasor subtipo luminal A y B, Her 2 negativas. Se evaluó la tasa de respuesta clínica, patológica y la tasa de cirugía conservadora. Resultados Se clasificaron como Luminal A el 26.9% (n=21) de las 78 pacientes, y Luminal B el 73.1% (n=57). La distribución por tamaño tumoral fue: T1 en el 1.25% (n= 1); T2 en 46.1% (n= 36); T3 en 37.2% (n=29) y T4 en el 15.4% (n=12) de los casos. No presentaban compromiso axilar (N0) el 24.3% de las pacientes (n=19), y se vio afectación ganglionar el 75.5 % (n= 59). El Estadio clínico más frecuente fue el III A (32% = 25 pacientes). El 60.3% (47 pacientes) de los casos tenía indicación de mastectomía de inicio y el 39.7% (41 pacientes) eran candidatas a cirugía conservadora. Posterior a la quimioterapia, se indicaron cirugías conservadoras en el 52.6 % (n=41) y mastectomía en el 47.4% (n=37), con una tasa de conversión a cirugía conservadora del 24.4%. La respuesta clínica completa fue del 28.2% (n=22) y la respuesta patológica completa del 16.6%. Conclusión Se observó una respuesta clínica y patológica acorde a la experiencia de otros centros, sobre todo en el subtipo luminal B, con una alta tasa de conversión a cirugía conservadora del 24.4%. Esto nos permite considerar la quimioterapia neoadyuvante como una opción de tratamiento válida para aquellas pacientes con cáncer de mama subtipo luminal B- Her 2 negativa.


Introduction Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (QTn) is a tool that is increasingly used in the treatment of breast cancer. its repercussion is objectified based on clinical parameters (physical examination and imaging studies) and anatomo-pathological parameters on the surgical specimen. There is variability in the impact of Qt according to the molecular subtype. This study evaluates the degree of response (clinical and pathological) to the QTn of patients with luminal subtype breast cancer and the rate of conservative surgeries in this subgroup. Objective To describe the clinical and pathological response rate in the subgroup of luminous patients and to evaluate the conversion rate in a conservative surgery after neoadjuvant treatment. Material and method We will analyze 220 clinical records belonging to patients that developed during the 2014-2017 period in the Breast Pathology Service of the Marie Curie Oncology Hospital. We included 78 patients with a diagnosis of invasive carcinoma luminal subtype A and B, their 2 negative. The clinical and pathological response rate and the rate of conservative surgery in each group were evaluated. Results Luminal A was classified as 26.9% (n = 21) of the 78 patients, and Luminal B was 73.1% (n = 57). The distribution by tumor size was: T1 at 1.25% (n = 1); T2 at 46.1% (n = 36); T3 in 37.2% (n = 29) and T4 in 15.4% (n = 12) of the cases. There is no axillary involvement (N0) in 24.3% of the patients (n = 19), and the ganglion was affected 75.5% (n = 59). The most frequent clinical stage was III A (32% = 25 patients). Sixty-three percent (47 patients) of the cases had an initial mastectomy indication and 39.7% (41 patients) were candidates for conservative surgery. After chemotherapy, conservative surgeries were indicated in 52.6% (n = 41) and mastectomy in 47.4% (n = 37), with a conversion rate to conservative surgery of 24.4%. The complete clinical response was 28.2% (n = 22) and the complete pathological response was 16.6%. Conclusion A clinical and pathological response was observed according to the experience of other centers, especially in luminal subtype B, with a high conversion rate to conservative surgery of 24.4%. This allows us to consider neoadjuvant chemotherapy as a valid treatment option for those patients with luminal B-Her 2 negative breast cancer.

RESUMO

Overtreatment with cisplatin-based chemotherapy is a major issue in the management of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), and currently none of the reported biomarkers for predicting response have been implemented in the clinic. Here we perform a comprehensive multi-omics analysis (genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics and proteomics) of 300 MIBC patients treated with chemotherapy (neoadjuvant or first-line) to identify molecular changes associated with treatment response. DNA-based associations with response converge on genomic instability driven by a high number of chromosomal alterations, indels, signature 5 mutations and/or BRCA2 mutations. Expression data identifies the basal/squamous gene expression subtype to be associated with poor response. Immune cell infiltration and high PD-1 protein expression are associated with treatment response. Through integration of genomic and transcriptomic data, we demonstrate patient stratification to groups of low and high likelihood of cisplatin-based response. This could pave the way for future patient selection following validation in prospective clinical trials.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone (VRd) is a standard therapy for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Carfilzomib, a next-generation proteasome inhibitor, in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone (KRd), has shown promising efficacy in phase 2 trials and might improve outcomes compared with VRd. We aimed to assess whether the KRd regimen is superior to the VRd regimen in the treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma in patients who were not being considered for immediate autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT). METHODS: In this multicentre, open-label, phase 3, randomised controlled trial (the ENDURANCE trial; E1A11), we recruited patients aged 18 years or older with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who were ineligible for, or did not intend to have, immediate ASCT. Participants were recruited from 272 community oncology practices or academic medical centres in the USA. Key inclusion criteria were the absence of high-risk multiple myeloma and an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0-2. Enrolled patients were randomly assigned (1:1) centrally by use of permuted blocks to receive induction therapy with either the VRd regimen or the KRd regimen for 36 weeks. Patients who completed induction therapy were then randomly assigned (1:1) a second time to either indefinite maintenance or 2 years of maintenance with lenalidomide. Randomisation was stratified by intent for ASCT at disease progression for the first randomisation and by the induction therapy received for the second randomisation. Allocation was not masked to investigators or patients. For 12 cycles of 3 weeks, patients in the VRd group received 1·3 mg/m2 of bortezomib subcutaneously or intravenously on days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of cycles 1-8, and day 1 and day 8 of cycles nine to twelve, 25 mg of oral lenalidomide on days 1-14, and 20 mg of oral dexamethasone on days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12. For nine cycles of 4 weeks, patients in the KRd group received 36 mg/m2 of intravenous carfilzomib on days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, and 16, 25 mg of oral lenalidomide on days 1-21, and 40 mg of oral dexamethasone on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. The coprimary endpoints were progression-free survival in the induction phase, and overall survival in the maintenance phase. The primary analysis was done in the intention-to-treat population and safety was assessed in patients who received at least one dose of their assigned treatment. The trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT01863550. Study recruitment is complete, and follow-up of the maintenance phase is ongoing. FINDINGS: Between Dec 6, 2013, and Feb 6, 2019, 1087 patients were enrolled and randomly assigned to either the VRd regimen (n=542) or the KRd regimen (n=545). At a median follow-up of 9 months (IQR 5-23), at a second planned interim analysis, the median progression-free survival was 34·6 months (95% CI 28·8-37·8) in the KRd group and 34·4 months (30·1-not estimable) in the VRd group (hazard ratio [HR] 1·04, 95% CI 0·83-1·31; p=0·74). Median overall survival has not been reached in either group. The most common grade 3-4 treatment-related non-haematological adverse events included fatigue (34 [6%] of 527 patients in the VRd group vs 29 [6%] of 526 in the KRd group), hyperglycaemia (23 [4%] vs 34 [6%]), diarrhoea (23 [5%] vs 16 [3%]), peripheral neuropathy (44 [8%] vs four [<1%]), dyspnoea (nine [2%] vs 38 [7%]), and thromboembolic events (11 [2%] vs 26 [5%]). Treatment-related deaths occurred in two patients (<1%) in the VRd group (one cardiotoxicity and one secondary cancer) and 11 (2%) in the KRd group (four cardiotoxicity, two acute kidney failure, one liver toxicity, two respiratory failure, one thromboembolic event, and one sudden death). INTERPRETATION: The KRd regimen did not improve progression-free survival compared with the VRd regimen in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, and had more toxicity. The VRd triplet regimen remains the standard of care for induction therapy for patients with standard-risk and intermediate-risk newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, and is a suitable treatment backbone for the development of combinations of four drugs.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Unlike for extremity sarcomas, the efficacy of radiotherapy for retroperitoneal sarcoma is not established. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of preoperative radiotherapy plus surgery versus surgery alone on abdominal recurrence-free survival. METHODS: EORTC-62092 is an open-label, randomised, phase 3 study done in 31 research institutions, hospitals, and cancer centres in 13 countries in Europe and North America. Adults (aged ≥18 years) with histologically documented, localised, primary retroperitoneal sarcoma that was operable and suitable for radiotherapy, who had not been previously treated and had a WHO performance status and American Society of Anesthesiologists score of 2 or lower, were centrally randomly assigned (1:1), using an interactive web response system and a minimisation algorithm, to receive either surgery alone or preoperative radiotherapy followed by surgery. Randomisation was stratified by hospital and performance status. Radiotherapy was delivered as 50·4 Gy (in 28 daily fractions of 1·8 Gy) in either 3D conformal radiotherapy or intensity modulated radiotherapy, and the objective of surgery was a macroscopically complete resection of the tumour mass with en-bloc organ resection as necessary. The primary endpoint was abdominal recurrence-free survival, as assessed by the investigator, and was analysed in the intention-to-treat population. Safety was analysed in all patients who started their allocated treatment. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT01344018. FINDINGS: Between Jan 18, 2012 and April 10, 2017, 266 patients were enrolled, of whom 133 were randomly assigned to each group. The median follow-up was 43·1 months (IQR 28·8-59·2). 128 (96%) patients from the surgery alone group had surgery, and 119 (89%) patients in the radiotherapy and surgery group had both radiotherapy and surgery. Median abdominal recurrence-free survival was 4·5 years (95% CI 3·9 to not estimable) in the radiotherapy plus surgery group and 5·0 years (3·4 to not estimable) in the surgery only group (hazard ratio 1·01, 95% CI 0·71-1·44; log rank p=0·95). The most common grade 3-4 adverse events were lymphopenia (98 [77%] of 127 patients in the radiotherapy plus surgery group vs one [1%] of 128 patients in the surgery alone group), anaemia (15 [12%] vs ten [8%]), and hypoalbuminaemia (15 [12%] vs five [4%]). Serious adverse events were reported in 30 (24%) of 127 patients in the radiotherapy plus surgery group, and in 13 (10%) of 128 patients in the surgery alone group. One (1%) of 127 patients in the radiotherapy plus surgery group died due to treatment-related serious adverse events (gastropleural fistula), and no patients in the surgery alone group died due to treatment-related serious adverse events. INTERPRETATION: Preoperative radiotherapy should not be considered as standard of care treatment for retroperitoneal sarcoma.

RESUMO

To determine the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NCRT) between young and old patients with locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) in terms of tumor response and survival outcome.LARC patients undergoing NCRT and radical surgery from 2011 to 2015 were included and divided into: young (aged ≤50 years) and old group (aged >50 years). Multivariate analyses were performed to identify risk factors for local recurrence. Least absolute shrinkage and selection operator analysis was performed to identify risk factors for overall survival. Predicting nomograms and time-indepent receiver operating characteristic curve analysis were performed to compare the models containing with/withour age groups.A total of 572 LARC patients were analyzed. The young group was associated with higher pathological TNM stage, poorly differentiated tumors, and higher rate of positive distal resection margin (P = .010; P = .019; P = .023 respectively). Young patients were associated with poorer 5-year disease-free survival and local recurrence rates (P = .023, P = .003 respectively). Cox regression analysis demonstrated that age ≤50 years (Hazard ratio = 2.994, P = .038) and higher pathological TNM stage (Hazard ratio = 3.261, P = .005) were significantly associated with increased risk for local recurrence. Least absolute shrinkage and selection operator analysis and the time-indepent receiver operating characteristic curve analysis demonstrated that including the age group were superior than that without age group.Young patients were associated with poorer disease free survival (DFS) and a higher risk for local recurrence in LARC following NCRT. The predicting model basing based on the age group had a better predictive ability. More intense adjuvant treatment could be considered to improve DFS and local control for young patients with LARC following NCRT.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Stage-specific embryonic antigen-4 (SSEA-4) expression is associated with malignant aggressiveness and is useful as a marker for identifying cancer stem cells. Our aim was to assess the relationship between hormonal therapy and SSEA-4 expression in prostate cancer (PC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: SSEA-4 expression in paired specimens from PC patients who underwent neoadjuvant hormonal therapy (NHT) and radical prostatectomy (60 pre-NHT specimens and 60 post-NHT specimens) was evaluated using immunohistochemistry. Proliferation index (PI) and apoptotic index (AI) were also evaluated. RESULTS: Post-NHT tissues had significantly elevated SSEA-4 expression whereas anti-tumor effects of NHT were inversely correlated with SSEA-4 expression level. SSEA-4 expression in post-NHT tissues was significantly associated with biochemical recurrence-free survival. SSEA-4 expression in the post-NHT tissues was positively associated with PI and negatively done with AI. CONCLUSION: SSEA-4 is a potential therapeutic target for limiting the malignant potential in hormone-naïve PC when considering the use of NHT.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The platelet distribution width (PDW) and serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels are known to be predictive of prognosis in various malignancies. Our aim was to determine whether combining PDW and serum CRP levels produces a prognostic indicator for esophageal cancer (EC) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 168 EC patients who underwent neoadjuvant therapy prior to esophagectomy were included in this study. RESULTS: We defined a combined PDW and CRP (CPC) score as follows: patients with both low pretherapeutic PDW (≤12.4 fl) and high postoperative serum CRP levels (≥0.5 mg/dl) were assigned a score of 2, while patients with one or neither of those were assigned a score of 1 or 0. A multivariable analysis showed that the CPC score was a significant risk factor for overall (p=0.006) and recurrence-free (p=0.004) survival. CONCLUSION: The CPC score is a strong prognostic indicator in EC patients.

RESUMO

AIM: To evaluate our experience with radical radiotherapy and chemotherapy in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study consisted of 27 patients treated with cisplatin-based chemoradiation (CCRT), 48 treated with radiation alone (RT), and 42 with locally advanced disease treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiation (neoCRT). RESULTS: The incidence of acute grade 3 or more genitourinary (GU) toxicity in the RT, CCRT and neoCRT groups was: 25%, 11% and 19%, respectively (p=0.029). The 3-year freedom from grade 2 or more GU toxicity was: 81%, 89%, 54%, respectively (p=0.36). The long-term outcomes of 3-year local control, overall survival, and disease-free survival were as follows: RT group: 74%, 61% and 55%; CCRT group: 76%, 76% and 56%; neoCRT group: 31%, 43% and 18%, respectively. CONCLUSION: The preferable bladder-conserving approach is CRT, however RT alone might also be an option for appropriately selected patients. NeoCRT for those with locally advanced tumors remain unsatisfactory; adequate selection of patients for radical treatment is of importance.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: We aimed to identify differences in cytoreduction rates and procedures performed in patients with advanced ovarian cancer undergoing primary (PDS) or interval debulking surgery (IDS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were collected prospectively on 110 consecutive patients from June 2016 to Mar 2020. RESULTS: Forty-nine patients (44.5%) underwent diaphragmatic peritonectomy (34 in PDS and 15 in IDS, p=0.005), while 38 (34.5%) underwent large bowel resection (29 in PDS and 9 in IDS, p<0.001). Complete cytoreduction was achieved in 39 patients in PDS and 29 in IDS (65% vs. 58%, p=0.22). Longer operations with more blood loss and extended hospital stay were performed in the PDS group. Ten patients (9.1%) experienced severe complications and in eight patients (7.2%) chemotherapy was delayed. CONCLUSION: More bowel resections and diaphragmatic stripping were performed in the PDS group. End surgical results were similar between groups, with a trend for more complete cytoreduction in PDS.

RESUMO

Concurrent cisplatin-based chemotherapy and radiotherapy (CCRT) plus brachytherapy is standard treatment for locally advanced cervical cancer. Platinum-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) followed by radical hysterectomy has been proposed as an alternative approach, especially for patients with stage Ib2-IIb disease. This review analyzes the most commonly used combination regimens in this clinical setting and the randomized trials comparing chemo-surgery versus definitive radiotherapy or CCRT. The combination of paclitaxel plus ifosfamide plus cisplatin (TIP regimen) obtained the highest rates of optimal pathological response, associated with elevated hematological toxicity. In a recent phase II study, a dose-dense regimen consisting of weekly paclitaxel plus carboplatin for 9 cycles has achieved optimal pathological response rates similar to those of TIP with better toxicity profile. Further studies are strongly warranted to better define the optimal regimen for the patients selected to receive NACT followed by radical surgery.

RESUMO

For resectable gastric cancer, although radical surgery is still the main treatment, methods of operation and the curative effect of operation are still in the stage of exploration for metastatic gastric cancer. Radiotherapy, chemotherapy and molecular targeted therapy also play an important role in prolonging the survival period of patients with gastric cancer. Postoperative radiotherapy and chemotherapy can prolong the survival time, but for patients with locally advanced gastric cancer, the preoperative radiotherapy and chemotherapy can also further improve the survival period of patients compared with direct operation. In addition, with the development and using of molecular targeted drugs, such as antiangiogenic agents, immunosuppressive drugs and so on, the survival period of patients with gastric cancer has been further extended.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Preferred neoadjuvant regimens for early-stage triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) include anthracycline-cyclophosphamide and taxane-based chemotherapy. IMpassion031 compared efficacy and safety of atezolizumab versus placebo combined with nab-paclitaxel followed by doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide as neoadjuvant treatment for early-stage TNBC. METHODS: This double-blind, randomised, phase 3 study enrolled patients in 75 academic and community sites in 13 countries. Patients aged 18 years or older with previously untreated stage II-III histologically documented TNBC were randomly assigned (1:1) to receive chemotherapy plus intravenous atezolizumab at 840 mg or placebo every 2 weeks. Chemotherapy comprised of nab-paclitaxel at 125 mg/m2 every week for 12 weeks followed by doxorubicin at 60 mg/m2 and cyclophosphamide at 600 mg/m2 every 2 weeks for 8 weeks, which was then followed by surgery. Stratification was by clinical breast cancer stage and programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) status. Co-primary endpoints were pathological complete response in all-randomised (ie, all randomly assigned patients in the intention-to-treat population) and PD-L1-positive (ie, patients with PD-L1-expressing tumour infiltrating immune cells covering ≥1% of tumour area) populations. This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT03197935), Eudra (CT2016-004734-22), and the Japan Pharmaceutical Information Center (JapicCTI-173630), and is ongoing. FINDINGS: Between July 7, 2017, and Sept 24, 2019, 455 patients were recruited and assessed for eligibility. Of the 333 eligible patients, 165 were randomly assigned to receive atezolizumab plus chemotherapy and 168 to placebo plus chemotherapy. At data cutoff (April 3, 2020), median follow-up was 20·6 months (IQR 8·7-24·9) in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group and 19·8 months (8·1-24·5) in the placebo plus chemotherapy group. Pathological complete response was documented in 95 (58%, 95% CI 50-65) patients in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group and 69 (41%, 34-49) patients in the placebo plus chemotherapy group (rate difference 17%, 95% CI 6-27; one-sided p=0·0044 [significance boundary 0·0184]). In the PD-L1-positive population, pathological complete response was documented in 53 (69%, 95% CI 57-79) of 77 patients in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group versus 37 (49%, 38-61) of 75 patients in the placebo plus chemotherapy group (rate difference 20%, 95% CI 4-35; one-sided p=0·021 [significance boundary 0·0184]). In the neoadjuvant phase, grade 3-4 adverse events were balanced and treatment-related serious adverse events occurred in 37 (23%) and 26 (16%) patients, with one patient per group experiencing an unrelated grade 5 adverse event (traffic accident in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group and pneumonia in the placebo plus chemotherapy group). INTERPRETATION: In patients with early-stage TNBC, neoadjuvant treatment with atezolizumab in combination with nab-paclitaxel and anthracycline-based chemotherapy significantly improved pathological complete response rates with an acceptable safety profile.

RESUMO

The androgen receptor (AR) is the master regulator of prostate cancer (PCa) development, and inhibition of AR signalling is the most effective PCa treatment. AR is expressed in PCa cells and also in the PCa-associated stroma, including infiltrating macrophages. Macrophages have a decisive function in PCa initiation and progression, but the role of AR in macrophages remains largely unexplored. Here, we show that AR signalling in the macrophage-like THP-1 cell line supports PCa cell line migration and invasion in culture via increased Triggering Receptor Expressed on Myeloid cells-1 (TREM-1) signalling and expression of its downstream cytokines. Moreover, AR signalling in THP-1 and monocyte-derived macrophages upregulates IL-10 and markers of tissue residency. In conclusion, our data suggest that AR signalling in macrophages may support PCa invasiveness, and blocking this process may constitute one mechanism of anti-androgen therapy.

RESUMO

In order to improve the overall treatment level of pancreatic cancer in China, Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery in China Society of Surgery of Chinese Medical Association and Pancreatic Disease Committee of China Research Hospital Association have formulated the guideline for neoadjuvant therapy of pancreatic cancer in China (2020 edition). Based on the GRADE system, the guideline has conducted a discussion on the indication, regimen selection, therapeutic effect evaluation, pathological diagnosis and surgery strategy, etc. This guideline has quantified the evidence level of the current clinical researches and provided recommendations for the clinical practice in the neoadjuvant therapy of pancreatic cancer. The guideline has highlighted the role of multiple disciplinary team and represented the conversion of treatment concept in pancreatic cancer. Neoadjuvant therapy has prolonged the survival of the part of pancreatic cancer patients. However, more high-quality clinical researches are in urgent need to improve the level of evidence, optimize the clinical practice and improve the survival of patients.

RESUMO

Limited data are available regarding treatment patterns, healthcare resource utilization (HCRU), treatment costs and clinical outcomes for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in Japan. This retrospective database study analyzed the Medical Data Vision database for DLBCL patients who received treatment during the identification period from October 1 2008 to December 31 2017. Among 6,965 eligible DLBCL patients, 5,541 patients (79.6%) received first-line (1L) rituximab (R)-based therapy, and then were gradually switched to chemotherapy without R in subsequent lines of therapy. In each treatment regimen, 1L treatment cost was the highest among all lines of therapy. The major cost drivers i.e. total direct medical costs until death or censoring across all regimens and lines of therapy were from the 1L regimen and inpatient costs. During the follow-up period, DLBCL patients who received a 1L R-CHOP regimen achieved the highest survival rate and longest time-to-next-treatment, with a relatively low mean treatment cost due to lower inpatient healthcare resource utilization and fewer lines of therapy compared to other 1L regimens. Our retrospective analysis of clinical practices in Japanese DLBCL patients demonstrated that 1L treatment and inpatient costs were major cost contributors and that the use of 1L R-CHOP was associated with better clinical outcomes at a relatively low mean treatment cost.

RESUMO

Over the past few months, regular care has been postponed where possible in order to increase the healthcare capacity for COVID-19 patients. The pressure imposed on the healthcare system by the new coronavirus has led to the need for the prioritising of breast cancer care. Several professional scientific and medical organisations have published proposals to prioritise oncological care. Due to the poor prognosis, care for patients with progressive disease during neoadjuvant systemic therapy and a triple negative, may not be postponed. In certain groups of patients, including those with ductal carcinoma in situ or an endocrine sensitive tumour, treatment may be postponed or modified, although with certain reservations.At the initiative of the NationaalBorstkankerOverleg Nederland, prospective data are currently being collected in order to gain more insight into the impact of COVID-19 on breast cancer care.
