CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms the activity and safety of SBRT in patients with MPR-OC and identifies clinical and treatment parameters able to predict CR and LC rate. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: This study aimed to define activity and safety of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in a very large, real life data set of patients with metastatic, persistent, recurrent ovarian cancer (MPR-OC). Patient age 25 Gy were associated with better local control (LC) rate. Mild toxicity was experienced in 20.7% of patients. In conclusion, this study confirms the activity and safety of SBRT in MPR-OC patients and identifies clin...

AbstractBackgroundHigh levels of adenosine present in the tumor microenvironment have direct immunosuppressive impact on T-cell function and activation. AB928, a selective, small-molecule dual A2aR/A2bR antagonist, potently blocks the effects of adenosine and, in combination with chemotherapy or anti-PD-1, may have a more profound effect on reactivating anti-tumor immunity.MethodsFour phase I, open-label, disease-specific platform studies assessing the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and clinical activity of AB928 in combination with chemotherapy (chemo) or AB122. In dose escalation (3  +&thins...

Abstract Nowadays, vitamin D is known to have functions beyond bone formation, including inhibiting angiogenesis and promoting tumor apoptosis. CYP27B1 and group-specific component (GC), the main enzyme responsible for the degradation and transport of active vitamin D, play important role in many cancer related cellular processes. Relationships between CYP27B1 and GC polymorphisms and cancer susceptibility have been widely investigated, whereas the results are inconsistent. We strictly searched on EMBASE, PubMed, Web of Science, Wan Fang and CNKI electronic databases for relevant studies exploring the associations...

Growing evidence has demonstrated that epigenetic dysregulation is a common pathological feature in human cancer cells. Global alterations in the epigenetic landscape are prevalent in malignant cells across different solid tumours including, prostate cancer, non-small-cell lung cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and in haemopoietic malignancy. In particular, DNA hypomethylation and histone hypoacetylation have been observed in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) patient blasts, with histone methylation being an emerging area of study. Histone 3 lysine 9 trimethylation (H3K9me3) is a post-translational modification known to be invol...

Abstract Metastatic lung cancer encompasses a heterogenous group of patients in terms of burdens of disease, ranging from patients with extensive metastases to those with a limited number of metastatic lesions (oligometastatic disease). Histopathological heterogeneity also exists within two broad categories, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC), portraying different patterns and evolution of disease. Local consolidative therapy to the primary tumour and metastatic sites, including surgery and/or radical dose radiotherapy, is increasingly being used to improve survival outcomes, part...

ConclusionRITI can be induced in patients with NSCLC through upregulated IgG and/or IgM. RITI response was not associated with proton versus photon therapy or with clinical outcomes in this small cohort and should be examined in a larger cohort in future studies.

Background: Little is known about the incidence of ipilimumab-related serious adverse events (SAEs) across various tumor types, drug doses and treatment regimens.Methods: PubMed database was searched up to November, 2017 to identify prospective clinical trials of ipilimumab therapy for adult patients with cancer. Comparisons of the incidence were based on the χ2 test in univariate analysis and the logistic regression model in multivariate analysis.Results: Twenty-four studies (4549 patients) with 35 independent study cohorts (21 melanoma, 6 prostate cancer, 5 NSCLC, and 3 SCLC cohorts) of ipilimumab were included in th...

Abstract Gene promoter methylation is a common epigenetic event, taking place in the early phase of tumorigenesis, which has a great potential as a diagnostic and prognostic cancer biomarker. In this umbrella review, we provide an overview on the association between gene-promoter methylation of protein-coding genes and cancer risk based on currently available meta-analyses data on gene promoter methylation. We searched MEDLINE via PubMed and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews for meta-analyses that examine the association between gene-promoter methylation and cancer, published until January 2019 in Englis...
