A 59-year-old man underwent total gastrectomy(with D2 dissection)and cholecystectomy for gastric cancer and a submucosal tumor of the stomach. The specimen was immunohistochemically positive for c-kit, the Ki-67 label index was 10%, and the mitotic count was 20/HPF. Finally, the patient was diagnosed with high-risk gastrointestinal stromal cancer with normal type gastric cancer. After discharge from hospital, we started administration of TS-1 as adjuvant therapy for the gastric cancer. As multiple recurrences of the GIST in the abdomen developed, the patient underwent 3 radical local resections...

: The European Association of Urology Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) guidelines panel updated their recommendation on adjuvant therapy in unfavourable, clinically nonmetastatic RCC following the recently reported results of a second randomised controlled phase 3 trial comparing 1-yr sunitinib to placebo for high-risk RCC after nephrectomy (S-TRAC). On the basis of conflicting results from the two available studies, the panel rated the quality of the evidence, the harm-to-benefit ratio, patient preferences, and costs...

Clinical parameters can be used to identify patients at greatest risk for recurrence following nephrectomy for clinically localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Molecular tools are being developed to improve risk stratification. An increasing list of available treatments for metastatic RCC continues to provide hope that an effective adjuvant therapy will be identified for patients with high-risk, clinically localized disease. In a phase 3 adjuvant therapy trial (S-TRAC), sunitinib increased median disease-free survival in patients with clear cell RCC who were at very high risk...

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the historic and current diagnosis and treatment status of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in the Chinese population based on four high volume databases. METHODS: Clinicopathological data of GIST patients with follow-up information between January 1998 and December 2015 from Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center, Union Hospital of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Southern Medical University Nanfang Hospital and Guangdong General Hospital were retrospectively analyzed...

Semi-invasive or invasive aspergillosis occurring following chemotherapy with sunitinib is a rare condition with unknown incidence and prognosis. Here, we report a case involving a 59-year-old male who had a history of underlying stable aspergilloma and was newly diagnosed with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Following surgical resection for renal cell carcinoma and adjuvant chemotherapy with sunitinib for 8 months, the patient presented with hemoptysis. Chest computed tomography revealed an increased soft tissue mass and air crescent sign of the underlying aspergilloma, combined with consolidation and bronchial artery hypertrophy around the lesion...

Background Sunitinib, a vascular endothelial growth factor pathway inhibitor, is an effective treatment for metastatic renal-cell carcinoma. We sought to determine the efficacy and safety of sunitinib in patients with locoregional renal-cell carcinoma at high risk for tumor recurrence after nephrectomy. Methods In this randomized, double-blind, phase 3 trial, we assigned 615 patients with locoregional, high-risk clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma to receive either sunitinib (50 mg per day) or placebo on a 4-weeks-on, 2-weeks-off schedule for 1 year or until disease recurrence, unacceptable toxicity, or consent withdrawal...

Antiangiogenic tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) that target VEGF receptor-2 (VEGFR2) have not been effective as adjuvant treatments for micrometastatic disease in phase III clinical trials. Angiopoietin-2 (Ang2) is a proangiogenic and proinflammatory vascular destabilizer that cooperates with VEGF. The purpose of this study was to test whether CVX-060 (an Ang2-specific CovX-body) can be combined with VEGFR2-targeting TKIs (sunitinib or regorafenib) to successfully treat postsurgical metastatic disease in multiple orthotopically implanted human tumor xenograft and syngeneic murine tumor models...

The first 15 years of management of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) have led to 3 lines of therapy for metastatic disease: imatinib, sunitinib, and regorafenib. In the adjuvant setting, imatinib is usually given for 3 years postoperatively to patients with higher-risk primary tumors that are completely resected. In this review, issues regarding GIST adjuvant therapy are discussed. It is hoped this review will help the reader understand the present standard of care to improve upon it in years to come...

The development of targeted agents has expanded the anticancer arsenal available to oncologists and revolutionized the field of cancer treatment. In patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), small molecule targeted therapies have improved clinical outcomes compared with cytokine-based treatments. Sunitinib malate is one such drug that has demonstrated clinical efficacy in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). This oral, multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor is approved for use in multiple countries for the treatment of advanced RCC and gastrointestinal stromal tumor patients who have progressed on imatinib therapy...

INTRODUCTION: To compare surgical complications and tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)-toxicities in patients who underwent primary cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) followed by adjuvant TKI therapy versus those who underwent neoadjuvant TKI therapy prior to planned CN for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two-center retrospective analysis. Sixty-one mRCC patients underwent TKI therapy with sunitinib between July 2007 to January 2014. Patients were divided into three groups: primary CN followed by adjuvant TKI (n = 27, Group 1), neoadjuvant TKI prior to CN (n = 21, Group 2), and primary TKI alone (no surgery, n = 13, Group 3)...

To report the clinical presentation and outcomes of a series of patients who presented with abdominal/pelvic mass or pelvic pain and were diagnosed with a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). Retrospective data were collected of all patients who presented with an abdominal/pelvic mass or pelvic pain between January 2010 and July 2015 and who were ultimately diagnosed with a GIST. The patients' medical records were reviewed. A literature review was also conducted. The event free survival and overall survival was calculated for all patients using Kaplan Meier curve (SPSS19-SPSS Inc...

BACKGROUND: Renal-cell carcinoma is highly vascular, and proliferates primarily through dysregulation of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) pathway. We tested sunitinib and sorafenib, two oral anti-angiogenic agents that are effective in advanced renal-cell carcinoma, in patients with resected local disease at high risk for recurrence. METHODS: In this double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised, phase 3 trial, we enrolled patients at 226 study centres in the USA and Canada...

Regorafenib is a novel oral multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor having both antitumor and anti-angiogenic activities. Regorafenib was recently approved by US Food and Drug Administration in February 25, 2013 in the treatment for patients with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumor and for the treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma after disease progression or intolerance to imatinib mesylate and sunitinib therapy. Oral regorafenib demonstrates a high level of efficacy with acceptable tolerability with the 160 mg daily for 3 weeks followed by 1 week off schedule; a continuous schedule could be of interest...

Benign etiologies and primary thyroid cancers are the most common causes of incidental thyroid nodules. Clinically evident metastases to the thyroid gland are not common and account for 2%-3% of thyroid cancers, though the incidence of thyroid metastases reaches 24% in autopsy studies.1 The most common clinically detected thyroid metastases originate from renal cell carcinoma (RCC; 48.1%).2 We report here a rare case of a man with clear-cell RCC with late recurrence in the thyroid gland as a solitary metastasis, 13 years after the primary diagnosis...
