CHD7 associated with survival in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients receiving gemcitabine

As reported in Cancer Research, low CHD7 expression is associated with increased RFS and OS in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients receiving gemcitabine. There was no association between CHD7 expression and RFS or OS in patients who were not treated with gemcitabine.

Increased incidence of second primary cancers in patients with salivary gland tumors

As reported in JAMA—Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, patients with salivary gland tumors have an increased risk of second primary tumors and newly developed cancers. Specifically, the cumulative 2-, 5-, and 10-year rates for second primary cancers are 4.4%, 8.3%, and 12.4%, respectively. Similarly, the cumulative 2-, 5-, and 10-year rates for newly diagnosed cancers are 1.1%, 3.4%, and 10.5%, respectively.

Cisplatin monotherapy effective in pediatric high-risk hepatoblastoma

As reported in the Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, treatment of children with high-risk hepatoblastoma (n=14) with cisplatin monotherapy was as effective as cisplatin + doxorubicin combination therapy, but with less toxicity. The complete resection rate was 78.6%, the event-free survival rate was 81.8%, and the OS rate was 100%.
