Highlights in Oncology

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%.

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.

VPAC1 overexpression associated with colon cancer aggression

As reported in Tumor Biology, VPAC1 expression is increased in poorly differentiated compared to well-differentiated colon cancer. VPAC1 expression is also increased in the blood vessels and macrophages adjacent to colon cancer tissues compared to healthy tissues. The overexpression of VPAC1 is related to EGFR overexpression.
