Oncostatin M Receptor as a Therapeutic Target for Radioimmune Therapy in Synovial Sarcoma.

Pharmaceuticals (Basel) 2022 May 24;15(6). Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID 83209, USA.

Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a pediatric muscle cancer that primarily affects adolescents and young adults and has few treatment options. Complicating the treatment of synovial sarcoma is the low mutational burden of SS. Inflammatory pathways have been identified as being upregulated in some SS, leading to the discovery of upregulated oncostatin M receptor (OSMR). Read More

Impact of Limb Salvage on Prognosis of Patients Diagnosed With Extremity Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcomas.

Front Oncol 2022 6;12:873323. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Orthopedics, Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China.

Background: Although clinicians and patients with extremity bone and soft tissue (EBST) are increasingly interested in limb salvage surgery (LSS), because of the minimal damage to physical appearance and function, however, there is still a lack of large-scale population studies on whether LSS improves the prognosis of patients.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the survival of patients with EBST sarcomas after receiving LSS and amputation.

Methods: To conduct the population-based study, we identified 6,717 patients with a histologically diagnosed bone sarcoma and 24,378 patients with a histologically diagnosed soft tissue sarcoma from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database. Read More

Targeting Ferroptosis Vulnerability in Synovial Sarcoma: Is it all about ME1?

Clin Cancer Res 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, United States.

Understanding metabolic dependencies and their therapeutic vulnerabilities are key to precision oncology. Malic enzyme1 (ME1) is frequently overexpressed in cancers with pro-tumorigenic effects. In contrast, consistent loss of ME1 expression in synovial sarcoma compared with other sarcomas indicates a unique ferroptosis liability for precision therapy in this form of cancer. Read More

Management of Synovial Sarcoma and Myxoid Liposarcoma.

Surg Oncol Clin N Am 2022 Jul;31(3):547-558

Department of Radiotherapy at the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Department of Radiotherapy at the Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, the Netherlands.

Synovial sarcoma and myxoid liposarcoma are translocation-related sarcomas, with a high risk of developing distant metastasis, which often affect young patients and which are sensitive to chemo and radiotherapy. Surgery is the mainstay of therapy in localized disease. In these entities, perioperative radiotherapy is frequently administered, and chemotherapy is evaluated in patients with high-risk limb/trunk wall tumors in which an advantage in overall survival has been shown in the latest clinical trials.

Immunotherapy in Sarcoma: Where Do Things Stand?

Surg Oncol Clin N Am 2022 Jul;31(3):381-397

Department of Medical Oncology, Centre Leon Berard, 28 rue Laennec, Lyon 69008, France.

Early experiences with modern immunotherapy have been disappointing in trials of unselected sarcoma subtypes. However, remarkable efficacy has been observed with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) in a subset of patients, with the most promising outcomes to date in alveolar soft part sarcoma, cutaneous angiosarcoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS), and dedifferentiated liposarcoma (dLPS). Adoptive cellular therapies targeting cancer testis antigens have shown promising activity, but only synovial sarcoma (SS) and myxoid/round cell liposarcomas reliably express these targets.

University of New South Wales, St. George & Sutherland Clinical School Sydney, NSW 2217, Australia.

Single-agent doxorubicin currently forms part of standard care for patients with sarcomas. However, efficacy is limited by the presence of dose-dependent cardiotoxicity and toxicity to renal, hepatic, and neurological systems. Therefore, there is a pressing need for novel drug regimens which can provide increased efficacy and safety. Read More

Systems-Level Mapping of Cancer Testis Antigen 1b/a to Sarcoma Pathways Identifies Activated Ran Binding-2 E3 SUMO-Protein Ligase and Transducin-Like Enhancer Protein 1.

Front Genet 2022 18;13:834445. Epub 2022 May 18.

Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Memorial Sloan Kettering Institute for Cancer Research, New York City, NY, United States.

Here we describe the identification of genes and their encoded proteins that are expressed in advanced grade tumors by reconstruction of a sarcoma cancer testis gene 1b/a () network. CTAG1B/A is an ortholog of the yeast/Drosophila transcription factor Pcc1p, and a member of the KEOPS transcription complex. It has been implicated in telomere maintenance and transcriptional regulation through association with chromatin remodeling factors and is only expressed during adult testis germ cell differentiation.

Division of Rare Cancer Research, National Cancer Center Research Institute, 5-1-1 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, 104-0045, Japan.

Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a rare and aggressive mesenchymal malignancy driven by a unique chromosomal translocation that generates the expression of the SS18:SSX fusion protein. It occurs at almost any anatomical site and most commonly in young adults. The standard curative treatment for primary SS is a wide surgical resection combined with radiotherapy and/or neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Read More
