Important Notice

PubMed Central Canada to be taken offline in February 2018

On February 23, 2018, PubMed Central Canada (PMC Canada) will be taken offline permanently.

2.  Retrospective review of metastatic melanoma patients with leptomeningeal disease treated with intrathecal interleukin-2 
ESMO Open  2018;3(1):e000283.
Objectives
Metastatic melanoma patients with leptomeningeal disease (LMD) have an extremely poor prognosis, with a median survival measured in weeks, and few treatment options. Outcomes of a retrospective cohort of patients with LMD that were treated with intrathecal interleukin-2 (IT IL-2) were reviewed to assess the long-term efficacy of this therapy.
Methods
The records of metastatic melanoma patients with LMD who were treated with IT IL-2 from 2006 to 2014 in a Compassionate Investigational New Drug study were reviewed. IL-2 (1.2 mIU) was administered intrathecally via Ommaya reservoir up to five times per week in the inpatient setting for 4 weeks; patients with good tolerance and clinical benefit received maintenance IT IL-2 every 1–3 months thereafter.
Results
The cohort included 43 patients. The median age of the patients was 47 years (range 18–71), and 32 (74%) were male. 23 patients (53%) had positive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cytology and radiographic evidence of LMD, 8 (19%) had positive CSF cytology only, 9 (21%) had radiographic evidence only and 3 (7%) were diagnosed based on pathology review after craniotomy. The median overall survival (OS) from initiation of IT IL-2 was 7.8 months (range, 0.4–90.8 months), with 1-year, 2-year and 5-year OS rates of 36%, 26% and 13%. The presence of neurological symptoms (HR 2.1, P=0.03), positive baseline CSF cytology (HR 4.1, P=0.001) and concomitant use of targeted therapy (HR 3.0, P=0.02) was associated with shorter OS on univariate analysis. All patients developed symptoms due to increased intracranial pressure which was managed with supportive medications and/or CSF removal, and there were no treatment-related deaths.
Conclusion
These results demonstrate that despite their historically dismal prognosis a subset of metastatic melanoma patients with LMD treated with IT IL-2 can achieve long-term survival, but these data need to be verified in a prospective trial setting.

3.  Genomic and immune heterogeneity are associated with differential responses to therapy in melanoma 
NPJ genomic medicine  2017;2:10.
Appreciation for genomic and immune heterogeneity in cancer has grown though the relationship of these factors to treatment response has not been thoroughly elucidated. To better understand this, we studied a large cohort of melanoma patients treated with targeted therapy or immune checkpoint blockade (n = 60). Heterogeneity in therapeutic responses via radiologic assessment was observed in the majority of patients. Synchronous melanoma metastases were analyzed via deep genomic and immune profiling, and revealed substantial genomic and immune heterogeneity in all patients studied, with considerable diversity in T cell frequency, and few shared T cell clones (<8% on average) across the cohort. Variables related to treatment response were identified via these approaches and through novel radiomic assessment. These data yield insight into differential therapeutic responses to targeted therapy and immune checkpoint blockade in melanoma, and have key translational implications in the age of precision medicine.

Melanoma: Tumor differences within a patient may explain heterogeneous responses
Patients with metastatic melanoma display molecular and immune differences across tumor sites associated with differential drug responses. A team led by Jennifer Wargo from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA, studied the radiological responses of 60 patients with metastatic melanoma, half of whom received targeted drug therapy and half of whom received an immune checkpoint inhibitor. The majority (83%) showed differences in responses across metastases. The group then profiled tumors in a subset, and found molecular and immune heterogeneity in different tumors within the same patient. Heterogeneity in mutational and immune profiles within tumors from individual patients could explain differences in treatment response. Knowing this, the authors emphasize the importance of acquiring biopsies from more than one tumor site in order to best tailor therapies to the features of metastatic cancer.

7.  Intrathecal administration of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes is well tolerated in a patient with leptomeningeal disease from metastatic melanoma: A case report 
Cancer immunology research  2015;3(11):1201-1206.
Patients with leptomeningeal disease (LMD) from melanoma have very poor outcomes and few treatment options. We present a case of intrathecal (IT) administration of autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in a patient with LMD from metastatic melanoma. The patient developed LMD after previous treatments with surgery, high-dose bolus interleukin-2 (HD IL-2), and systemic TIL infusion and experienced radiographic progression after intrathecal IL2 (IT IL-2) therapy. The patient received weekly treatment with increasing numbers of IT TIL followed by twice-weekly IT IL-2. The patient received three IT TIL infusions and did not experience any toxicities beyond those expected with IT IL-2 therapy. Analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) demonstrated increased inflammatory cytokines following the intrathecal treatments. Subsequent imaging demonstrated disease stabilization, and neurological deficits also remained stable. The patient expired five months after the initiation of IT TIL therapy with disease progression in the brain, liver, lung, and peritoneal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes, but without LMD progression. These results demonstrate the safety of intrathecal administration of TIL in melanoma patients with LMD and support the feasibility of conducting a prospective clinical trial to determine this therapy's clinical benefit among these patients.

8.  Clinical, molecular and immune analysis of dabrafenib and trametinib in metastatic melanoma patients that progressed on BRAF inhibitor monotherapy: a phase II clinical trial 
JAMA oncology  2016;2(8):1056-1064.
Importance
Combined treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib (CombiDT) achieves clinical responses in only ~15% of BRAF inhibitor (BRAFi)-refractory metastatic melanoma patients, in contrast to the high activity observed in BRAFi-naïve patients. Identifying correlates of response and mechanisms of resistance in this population will facilitate clinical management and rational therapeutic development.
Objective
To determine correlates of benefit from CombiDT therapy in BRAFi-refractory metastatic melanoma patients.
Design
Single-center, single-arm prospective phase II study of CombiDT in patients with BRAFV600 metastatic melanoma resistant to BRAFi monotherapy conducted between September 2012 and October 2014.
Setting
University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Participants
28 patients were screened and 23 enrolled. Key eligibility criteria included: BRAFV600 metastatic melanoma, prior BRAFi monotherapy, measurable disease (RECIST 1.1), and accessible tumor for biopsy.
Intervention
Patients were treated with dabrafenib (150 mg twice daily) and trametinib (2 mg daily) continuously until disease progression or intolerance. All participants underwent a mandatory baseline biopsy, and optional biopsies were performed on-treatment and at progression. Whole-exome sequencing, RT-PCR for BRAF splicing, RNAseq and IHC were performed on tumor samples, and blood was analyzed for levels of circulating BRAFV600.
Main outcome measures
Primary endpoint was overall response rate (ORR). Progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were secondary clinical endpoints.
Results
Among evaluable patients, the confirmed ORR was 10%, disease control rate (DCR) was 45%, and median PFS was 13 weeks. Clinical benefit was associated with duration of prior BRAFi >6 months (DCR 73% vs. 11% for ≤6 months, p=0.02) and decrease in circulating BRAFV600 at day 8 of cycle 1 (DCR 75% vs. 18% for no decrease, p=0.015), but not by pre-treatment MAPK pathway mutations or activation. On-treatment biopsies demonstrated that CombiDT failed to achieve significant MAPK pathway inhibition or immune infiltration in most patients.
Conclusions and relevance
The baseline presence of MAPK pathway alterations was not associated with benefit from CombiDT in BRAFi-refractory metastatic melanoma patients. Failure to inhibit the MAPK pathway provides a likely explanation for the limited clinical benefit of CombiDT in this setting. Circulating BRAF V600 is a promising early biomarker of clinical response.

9.  Loss of PTEN promotes resistance to T cell-mediated immunotherapy 
Cancer discovery  2015;6(2):202-216.
T cell-mediated immunotherapies are promising cancer treatments. However, most patients still fail to respond to these therapies. The molecular determinants of immune resistance are poorly understood. We show that loss of PTEN in tumor cells in preclinical models of melanoma inhibits T cell-mediated tumor killing and decreases T cell trafficking into tumors. In patients, PTEN loss correlates with decreased T cell infiltration at tumor sites, reduced likelihood of successful T cell expansion from resected tumors, and inferior outcomes with PD-1 inhibitor therapy. PTEN loss in tumor cells increased the expression of immunosuppressive cytokines, resulting in decreased T cell infiltration in tumors, and inhibited autophagy, which decreased T cell-mediated cell death. Treatment with a selective PI3Kβ inhibitor improved the efficacy of both anti-PD-1 and anti-CTLA4 antibodies in murine models. Together these findings demonstrate that PTEN loss promotes immune resistance and support the rationale to explore combinations of immunotherapies and PI3K-AKT pathway inhibitors.

10.  Chromosome 8q24.1/c-MYC Abnormality: A Marker for High-Risk Myeloma 
Leukemia & lymphoma  2014;56(3):602-607.
The proto-oncogene c-MYC, is rearranged in about 15% of patients with multiple myeloma (MM).
We identified 23 patients with MM and c-MYC. Primary objectives were to describe the clinical characteristics, response to therapy, progression free survival and overall survival (OS). 12/23 patients presented with or progressed to either plasma cell leukemia (PCL) and/or extramedullary disease (EMD). Induction therapy consisted of an immunomodulatory, proteasome inhibitor-based or conventional chemotherapy regimens. 15 patients achieved a PR and 3 achieved a VGPR. 16 patients received an autologous and, 1 patient an allogeneic HSCT. Median OS from diagnosis was 20.2 months. Patients with PCL or EMD had significantly shorter OS (15.5 vs. 40.4 months, p=0.0005). This is the first report describing the clinical characteristics of patients with MM and c-MYC. These abnormalities are associated with an aggressive form of MM, high incidence of PCL/EMD and short OS.

11.  Distinct clinical patterns and immune infiltrates are observed at time of progression on targeted therapy versus immune checkpoint blockade for melanoma 
Oncoimmunology  2016;5(3):e1136044.
ABSTRACT
We have made major advances in the treatment of melanoma through the use of targeted therapy and immune checkpoint blockade; however, clinicians are posed with therapeutic dilemmas regarding timing and sequence of therapy. There is a growing appreciation of the impact of antitumor immune responses to these therapies, and we performed studies to test the hypothesis that clinical patterns and immune infiltrates differ at progression on these treatments. We observed rapid clinical progression kinetics in patients on targeted therapy compared to immune checkpoint blockade. To gain insight into possible immune mechanisms behind these differences, we performed deep immune profiling in tumors of patients on therapy. We demonstrated low CD8+ T-cell infiltrate on targeted therapy and high CD8+ T-cell infiltrate on immune checkpoint blockade at clinical progression. These data have important implications, and suggest that antitumor immune responses should be assessed when considering therapeutic options for patients with melanoma.

13.  Plasma Cell Enrichment Enhances Detection of High-Risk Cytogenomic Abnormalities by Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization and Improves Risk Stratification of Patients With Plasma Cell Neoplasms 
Context
Methods for plasma cell enrichment in bone marrow (BM) specimens can increase the sensitivity of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for detecting cytogenomic abnormalities, but there is no published report using these methods to evaluate high-risk cytogenomic abnormalities in patients with treated plasma cell neoplasms (PCN) and clinicopathologic data in follow-up.
Objective
To evaluate the utility of plasma cell enrichment combined with FISH and follow-up data for high-risk cytogenomic abnormalities in post-therapy PCN patients.
Design
twenty-eight PCN patients with 22 treated were included in this study. Plasma cells were enriched in BM aspirates using a magnetic cell-sorting procedure to select CD138+ cells. Probes were chosen to assess for del(17p13/TP53), del(13q14/RB1), 1q21/CKS1B gain, IgH/FGFR3 and IgH/MAF. Clinicopathologic data were collected during clinical follow-up after plasma cell enrichment.
Results
Plasma cells in non-enriched specimens ranged from 1%–28% (median, 8%) compared with 28%–96% (median, 73%) in enriched specimens (p<0.0001). In a subset of treated-patients in clinical remission, FISH detected high-risk cytogenomic abnormalities only in plasma cell enriched samples. This approach also detected abnormalities in cases of solitary plasmacytoma and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance.
Conclusions
Plasma cell enrichment of BM samples increases FISH sensitivity to detect high-risk cytogenomic abnormalities, particularly in treated-patients, and these results, in combination with data from clinical follow-up, can be of value to improve risk stratification and patient management.

14.  Genotyping of cutaneous melanoma 
Chinese clinical oncology  2014;3(3):27-.
Until recently, treatment options for patients with metastatic melanoma were very limited. This landscape has evolved dramatically since the discovery of activating mutations in the BRAF gene in ~45% of cutaneous melanomas. Vemurafenib, dabrafenib, and trametinib have all received regulatory approval for the treatment of metastatic melanoma patients with a BRAFV600 mutation. Based on the necessity to document the presence of a BRAFV600 mutation to prescribe these agents, molecular testing is now the standard of care in this disease. However, the options and rationale for testing are evolving rapidly due to an improved understanding of the molecular drivers and heterogeneity of melanoma. Such testing may identify rational combinatorial approaches to prevent or overcome resistance for the approved BRAF inhibitors. In addition, new clinical strategies have been identified for a number of other molecular changes that are detected in this disease, including somatic changes in NRAS, PTEN, CDKN2A, and c-KIT, among others. This review summarizes the current understanding of the genetic landscape of mutations in melanoma, their associations with clinicopathological features, and their implications for clinical testing and treatment.

15.  Attrition rates, reasons and predictive factors in supportive and palliative oncology clinical trials 
Cancer  2012;119(5):1098-1105.
Background
Attrition is common among supportive/palliative oncology clinical trials. Few studies have documented the reasons and predictors for dropout. We aimed to determine the rate, reasons and factors associated with attrition both before reaching the primary endpoint and the end of study.
Methods
We conducted a review of all prospective interventional supportive/palliative oncology trials in the Department of Palliative Care and Rehabilitation Medicine at MD Anderson Cancer Center between 1999–2011. Patient and study characteristics and attrition data were extracted.
Results
1214 patients were included in 18 clinical trials. The median age was 60, 41% had performance status ≥3, median fatigue 7/10 and median dyspnea 2/10. The attrition rate was 26% (95% confidence interval [CI] 23%-28%) for the primary endpoint and 44% (95% CI 41%-47%) for the end of study. Common reasons for primary endpoint dropout were symptom burden (21%), patient preference (15%), hospitalization (10%) and death (6%). Primary endpoint attrition was associated with higher baseline intensity of fatigue (odds ratio [OR]=1.10 per point, P=0.01) and longer study duration (P=0.04). End of study attrition was associated with higher baseline levels of dyspnea (OR=1.06, P=0.01), fatigue (OR=1.08, P=0.01), Hispanic race (OR=1.87, P=0.002), higher education (P=0.02), longer study duration (P=0.01) and outpatient studies (P=0.05).
Conclusions
The attrition rate was high in supportive/palliative oncology clinical trials, and was associated with various patient characteristics and high baseline symptom burden. These findings have implications for future clinical trial design including eligibility criteria and sample size calculation.
