Treatment in resectable non-metastatic adenocarcinoma of stomach: Changing paradigms.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):74-80

Department of Radiation Oncology, Aster Hospital, Cochin, Kerala, India.

Adjuvant treatment in gastric adenocarcinoma has been a challenge for the treating specialists, and despite several trials, a clear consensus is yet to be defined. The higher propensity for lymph nodal involvement and locoregional recurrences led to the hypothesis that locoregional and systemic treatments need to be equally aggressive to achieve better outcomes in the management of gastric adenocarcinoma. Regional, ethnic, and biological differences between the Eastern and Western population are also found to reflect in the tumor behavior and its response to treatment. Read More

Every distant deposit is not a metastasis: Synchronous primaries do exist.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):70-73

Department of Medical Oncology, Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

Background: Synchronous occurrence of two malignant tumors is a rare event. With increasing use of sophisticated imaging modalities for staging, synchronous multiple tumors are more commonly detected now. Assuming the second primary malignancy as metastasis will change the intent of treatment from curative to palliative, greater awareness among oncologists is of paramount importance. Read More

Cell-free circulating tumor DNA in patients with high-grade glioma as diagnostic biomarker - A guide to future directive.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):65-69

Department of Radiation Oncology, Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, Bangalore, Karnataka, India.

Background: Owing to the aggressive nature of high-grade gliomas (HGGs), its early diagnosis holds the key to a favorable prognosis. Currently, tissue biopsy is the gold standard to verify HGG's initial diagnosis and can be challenging due to its invasive nature. In this study, our objective was a noninvasive panel for timely detection of HGG and its progression using cell-free circulating tumor DNA (cfTDNA). Read More

Oxidative stress in relation to obesity in breast cancer.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):41-44

Department of Radiology, Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences, Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Purpose: Breast carcinoma is one of the most common neoplasms in women and is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Obesity-induced chronic inflammation promoted by adipose tissue dysfunction is a key feature, which is thought to be an important link between obesity and cancer. Oxidative stress (OS) has been suggested to play an important role in carcinogenesis. Read More

Multiple logistic regression analysis predicts cancer risk among tobacco usage with glutathione -transferase p1 genotyping in patients with head and neck cancer.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):24-28

School of Biotechnology, Mahatma Gandhi National Institute of Research and Social Action, Gaganmahal Road, Domalguda, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

Introduction: Numerous studies have been investigated to understand the association between glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) polymorphism and risk of head and neck cancer (HNC) but yielded contradictory results, and no studies could confirm polymorphism in GSTP1 and that tobacco usage increases the risk of HNCs. Therefore, this study aimed to understand the association of GSTP1 Ile105Val polymorphism with or without tobacco usage in carcinogenesis and clinicopathological characteristics of patients with HNC.

Materials And Methods: Binary logistic regression analysis was performed to predict HNC risk with tobacco use and GSTP1 genotyping. Read More

Frozen section is not cost beneficial for the assessment of margins in oral cancer.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):19-23

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Background: Routine use of frozen section (FS) is a costly procedure and sparsely available in resource poor countries. A proper cost benefit analysis may help to reduce its routine use and would empower surgeons to perform oral cancer surgeries without having FS facility. FS is performed to identify microscopic spread beyond gross disease that cannot be assessed clinically. Read More

Biweekly cetuximab in combination with platinum and 5-fluorouracil in metastatic head and neck carcinoma.

Indian J Cancer 2019 Jan-Mar;56(1):4-8

Department of Medical Oncology, Ege University, Izmir, Turkey.

Background And Aim: The combination of cetuximab with platinum and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) chemotherapy prolongs survival in patients with metastatic or recurrent squamous-cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). Biweekly (once in 2 weeks) administration of cetuximab requires fewer hospital visits and decreases treatment costs; therefore, it is more convenient both for the patients and for the healthcare providers. Here, we assessed the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of an alternative biweekly regimen of cetuximab in combination with platinum and 5-FU chemotherapy as a first-line treatment for these patients.

A novel frameshift mutation in the gene in a patient with Lynch syndrome.

Indian J Cancer 2018 Oct-Dec;55(4):410-412

Department of Medical Oncology, Nepal Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Harisiddhi, Lalitpur, Nepal.

A novel mutation in the MLH1 gene likely to be pathogenic for Lynch syndrome was discovered in a proband with a family history of colon cancer. Immunohistochemistry showed negative expression of PMS2 and MLH1 in the resected tumor sample. The mutation lies at the highly conserved C-terminus of the MLH1 protein, the region through which it dimerizes with PMS2 to carry out its mismatch repair function. Read More
