Taxanes in combination with platinum derivatives for the treatment of ovarian cancer during pregnancy: A literature review
.

Int J Clin Pharmacol Ther 2017 Sep;55(9):753-760

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common types of solid carcinoma diagnosed during pregnancy. Taxane plus a platinum derivative is a combination therapy that is predominantly used in the treatment of ovarian cancer in non-pregnant women. Pregnancy adds various complexities to a course of treatment. In pregnant patients diagnosed with cancer during the first trimester, the risks of fetal malformations and fetal loss increase following the administration of cytotoxic drugs, and this is higher with multi-agent vs. single-agent chemotherapy (~ 25 vs. 10%). Exposure during the second and third trimester has little influence on teratogenic effects but increases the risk of intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity, low birth weight, and bone marrow toxicity. The present study aimed to review the maternal and fetal safety of treatment with taxane plus platinum derivatives for ovarian cancer during pregnancy. Relevant literature was retrieved from the Embase and PubMed databases using the search terms "ovarian cancer", "pregnancy", "taxane", "paclitaxel", "docetaxel", "platinum", "cisplatin", and "carboplatin". All available data up until September 2016 was synthesized, with no language restrictions. A total of 11 articles (including 13 pregnancies and 14 newborns) were retrieved that reported on the use of standard-dose taxane and platinum chemotherapy, including 9 cases treated with paclitaxel and carboplatin, 3 cases treated with paclitaxel and cisplatin, and 1 case treated with docetaxel and cisplatin. In 13 of the 14 (92.9%) births included, a healthy neonate was born, with follow-up ranging from 2 to 160 months. The average weight of the neonates at the time of delivery was 2,442.1 g. In 7 of 9 the case reports that provided survival data, the mother was alive and disease-free at the end of follow-up (ranging from 2 to 40 months). In conclusion, combination therapy with taxanes and a platinum derivative may play a significant role in the management of pregnant patients with ovarian cancer during the second and third trimester. Exposure to this combination of agents during the second and third trimester does not appear to have a significant bearing on fetal mortality and abortion.

S-layer proteins (Slps) are crystalline arrays of protein on bacterial cell surface layers. Owning to their capability to reassemble on the surface of lipid layers, Slps have been employed to modify liposomes for various profits. But the interaction information between Slps and positively charged liposomes are destitute, especially the gastrointestinal adhesion of Slps-coating liposomes is rarely reported. In the present work, the Slps extracted from Lactobacillus helveticus were reassembled on the surface of novel positively charged liposomes composed of soybean lecithin, EudragitRL100 and cholesterol. The particle size and remarkable changes of Zeta potential with various Slps/lipid weight ratios were determined by dynamic light scattering and phase analysis light scattering. Significant difference in fluorescence dequenching percentage of liposomes decorated by ODA-FITC confirmed Slps self-reassemble on the surface of liposomes. A higher integrity of vesicular membrane after the addition of Triton X-100 solution demonstrated the stability enhancement of Slps-coating liposomes. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy illustrated the interaction came from non-covalent bond. The mucoadhesion of Slps-coating liposomes was evaluated by the resident FITC-LP on the gastric and intestinal tract of mice at 7h and 12h after intragastrical administration, which proved that the Slps-coating improved the gastrointestinal adhesion significantly.
