More than Kidney Failure in Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Urinary Tract Cancer Data from the Vercelli Register

We describe the characteristics of first 50 patients with OSA and cancer of the register. Only 30% were females, 70% smokers (current or former), the median AHI at diagnosis was 43, 80% received positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment. Cancer diagnosis were retrospectively collected by anamnestic data from Vercelli register at the time of OSA diagnosis before starting PAP treatment.Results: In OSA and cancer patients from Vercelli Register, 34% had Urinary Tract Cancer (only 2 females, p

We present recent series examining sequencing of approved therapies while searching for predictive biomarkers. Finally, we examine trials evaluating novel agents that target certain biological pathways to highlight the likely future directions for progress in the clinical management of advanced prostate cancer.

Purpose of review The present article highlights the most common DNA repair gene mutations, using specific examples of individual genes or gene classes, and reviews the epidemiology and treatment implications for each one [with particular emphasis on poly-ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibition and PD-1 blockade]. Recent findings Genetic and genomic testing have an increasingly important role in the oncology clinic. For patients with prostate cancer, germline genetic testing is now recommended for all men with high-risk and metastatic disease, and somatic multigene tumor testing is recommended for men with metastatic ...

Purpose of review The present review describes the current role of metabolic imaging techniques such as multiparametric MRI (mpMRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI), hyperpolarized MRSI, and positron emission tomography (PET) in the diagnosis of primary prostate cancer, surveillance of low-grade disease, detection of metastases, and evaluation of biochemical recurrence after therapy. Recent findings The natural history of prostate cancer ranges from indolent disease that is optimally monitored by active surveillance, to highly aggressive disease that can be lethal. Current diagnostic methods remain imp...

Purpose of review Urothelial carcinoma is one of the 10 most common forms of cancer in the world with more than half a million cases diagnosed yearly. The past few years have witnessed a revolution in understanding the biology of urothelial carcinoma and the development of promising therapies. In this review, we summarize the emerging therapeutic approaches in the management of advanced urothelial carcinoma. Recent findings Since 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved five checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs), a fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) inhibitor, and an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) for the...

Purpose of review As the biology of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) continues to be elucidated, novel treatments focused around immunotherapies and targeted therapies will continue to emerge. In this review, we will highlight recent treatment advances and their implications for surgical and systemic therapy. Recent findings Several new treatments, including the tyrosine kinase inhibitor cabozantinib, the combination of a programmed cell death protein 1 antibody (nivolumab) with a cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 antibody (ipilimumab), and the combination of axitinib with pembrolizumab or avelumab hav...

Purpose of review Although testicular cancer remains a highly curable malignancy, challenges and uncertainty still remain in certain aspects of management. Residual disease after chemotherapy in patients with germ cell tumors (GCT) remains one of these challenges. We aim to highlight the recent literature on the management of residual disease after chemotherapy in GCT and the emerging innovations that may provide further guidance into this area. Recent findings A subset of patients with GCT will have residual disease after chemotherapy, and management of these patients involves highly skilled multidisciplinary experts...

Purpose of review This review attempts to give an update of epidemiological knowledge on head and neck cancers (HNC). Recent findings Worldwide, from 1990 to 2017, incidence rates for larynx and nasopharyngeal cancers decreased, whereas they increased for oro/hypopharyngeal cancers and lip/oral cavity cancers. They are still markedly higher among men than women. South Asia has the highest HNC incidence rate, followed by Europe, North America, and Australasia. Tobacco and alcohol remain the major risk factors. Rate of cancers attributable to human papillomavirus (HPV) among HNCs is highly depending on world region and...
