PURPOSE: Data are limited on imaging after primary treatment of localized prostate cancer.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We identified 8,435 men newly diagnosed with nonmetastatic prostate cancer in 1995 to 2012 who were enrolled in CaPSURE™. Patients were followed after primary treatment with radical prostatectomy, cryosurgery, brachytherapy, external beam radiation therapy or androgen deprivation therapy. We assessed the use of bone scan, computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging after primary treatment. Factors associated with posttreatment outcomes (number of imaging tests, and time to first imaging and salvage treatment) were evaluated with multivariate Poisson regression and Cox proportional hazards regression.

RESULTS: The incidence of posttreatment bone scan, computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging was 20% or less. Last posttreatment log(prostate specific antigen) was associated with multiple posttreatment imaging. Management by radical prostatectomy, cryosurgery, external beam radiation therapy or brachytherapy vs androgen deprivation therapy was associated with a lower likelihood of posttreatment imaging. Of patients who were imaged after treatment 25% with radical prostatectomy and 9% with radiation underwent imaging before prostate specific antigen failure. The 5-year salvage treatment-free survival rate was 81%. Positive findings on posttreatment imaging were associated with a higher risk of salvage treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: Patients treated with androgen deprivation therapy for localized disease were most likely to be imaged, primarily by bone scan. Men treated with other therapies were less likely to be imaged and tended to undergo computerized tomography. Imaging may add value to posttreatment prostate specific antigen monitoring to identify disease recurrence and progression. Further studies are needed to establish guidelines for the optimal frequency and imaging type to monitor the treatment response.

Omentin (intelectin) was first detected in the visceral omental adipose tissue. It has mainly two isoforms, omentin-1 and -2, with isoform-1 being the main form in human blood. It possesses insulin-sensitizing, anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic, cardio-protective, and oxidative stress-decreasing effects. Omentin's cardiovascular protective actions are caused by the improved endothelial cell survival and function, increased endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability, enhanced vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) relaxation with reduced proliferation, decreased inflammation, and suppressed oxidative stress. Omentin may also have a potential role in different cancer types and rheumatic diseases. Thus, omentin is an excellent therapeutic target in many diseases, including diabetes mellitus (DM), metabolic syndrome (MetS), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), inflammatory diseases, and cancer. This review demonstrates the physiological functions of omentin in ameliorating insulin resistance (IR), vascular function, and inflammation and its possible share in managing obesity-linked diseases, such as metabolic disorders, DM, and cardiovascular conditions.

OBJECTIVE: To develop quality assessment tool to evaluate surgical performance for robot-assisted radical cystectomy program.

METHODS: A prospectively maintained quality assurance database of 425 consecutive robot-assisted radical cystectomies performed by a single surgeon between 2005 and 2015 was retrospectively reviewed. Potentially modifiable factors, related to the management and perioperative care of patients, were used to evaluate patient care. Criteria included the following: preoperative (administration of neoadjuvant chemotherapy); operative (operative time <6.5 hours and estimated blood loss <500 cc); pathologic (negative soft tissue surgical margins and lymph node yield ≥20); and postoperative (no high-grade complications, readmission, or noncancer-related mortality within 30 days).The Quality Cystectomy Score (QCS) was developed (1 star: achieving ≤2 criteria or mortality within 30 days; 2 stars: 3 or 4 criteria met; 3 stars: 5 or 6 criteria met; and 4 stars: 7 or all criteria met). Univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazard regression models were fitted to test for the association between QCS and survival outcomes.

RESULTS: Most patients (85%) achieved at least 3 stars, and more patients achieved 4 stars with time. High QCS was associated with better recurrence-free, cancer-specific, and overall survival (P values <.05). None of the patients with 1-star were alive at 1 year. Patients with 4 stars achieved the best survival rates (recurrence-free survival [62%], cancer-specific survival [70%], and overall survival [53%] at 5 years) (log rank P < .0001).

CONCLUSION: Continuous assessment for quality improvement facilitated implementation and maintenance of robot-assisted program for bladder cancer.

Hussein, E., "Non-myeloablative bone marrow transplant and platelet infusion can transiently improve the clinical outcome of mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy: a case report.", Transfusion and apheresis science : official journal of the World Apheresis Association : official journal of the European Society for Haemapheresis, vol. 49, issue 2, pp. 208-11, 2013 Oct. Abstract

Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy (MNGIE) is caused by deficiency in thymidine phosphorylase (TP), that regulates thymidine (dThd) and deoxyuridine (dUrd). Toxic levels of dThd and dUrd can lead to mitochondrial dysfunction by impairing mitochondrial DNA replication, causing GI and neurologic deterioration. We studied the impact of bone marrow transplant (BMT) and platelets, as a source of TP on the clinical outcome of MNGIE. We report a case of MNGIE, who presented with severe vomiting. Over time, he was non-ambulatory and his GI symptoms got progressively worse with severe dysphagia, abdominal pain episodes, persistent vomiting and diarrhea. Being unfit for intense conditioning regimen, he received a mini BMT, with mild conditioning regimen. Bone marrow was obtained from his HLA fully matched brother. One month after transplantation, donor chimerism in peripheral blood was 33%. Excellent clinical responses were achieved 3 months after transplantation and circulating donor cell chimerism decreased to 24% with a significant increase in platelet TP activity. Ten months post transplant the patient's symptoms recurred and fresh single donor platelets were infused, with a significant increase in platelet TP activity. Mini BMT and platelet transfusion can transiently increase circulating TP activity and might prevent progress of this fatal disease.

A 43-year-old man presented with bony pains, repeated pathological fractures with overlying skin ulcerations, and forearm and chest wall swellings. Investigations led to the diagnosis of Erdheim–Chester disease. Treatment with low-dose prednisolone, oral everolimus, and zoledronic acid was started, with a marked improvement in his condition.

Abstract2017_efficacy_and_toxicity_of_metronomic_chemotherapy_in_metastatic_breast_cancer-_egyptian_experience.pdf

BACKGROUND: Metronomic chemotherapy (MC) has shown efficacy in patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). We therefore tested the efficacy and toxicity of MC in pretreated MBC.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: This prospective phase II study included 50 patients with heavily pretreated MBC who received MC in the form of continuous oral cyclophosphamide 50 mg/day and oral methotrexate 2.5 mg twice per day on days 1 and 2 every week. The primary end point was progression-free survival (PFS), whereas the secondary end points were response rate, overall survival (OS), and safety.

RESULTS: Forty-eight patients were assessed. One patient achieved complete response and 10 patients had partial response, whereas 19 patients had stable disease. The median PFS was 5 months, whereas the median OS was 7 months. Patients with negative progesterone receptors, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (PS) 1, achieving response, and those who developed leucopenia, neutropenia, and anemia had significant prolonged PFS, whereas patients with early stage at presentation, receiving < 5 previous treatment lines, achieving response, and experiencing anemia with MC had significant superior OS. In multivariate analysis, achieving response, PS 1, a longer time interval from initial diagnosis until starting MC, and anemia were independent prognostic factors for longer PFS. Initial stage at presentation, number of previous treatment lines, and response were independent prognostic factors for OS.

CONCLUSIONS: MC is an attractive treatment approach that is effective and less toxic. There are certain groups of patients who seem to benefit more, especially those who experienced toxicity with treatment. Larger trials are warranted to assess this approach early in the course of the disease and with other more active agents.
