Presented here is the case of an elderly leiomyosarcoma patient with multiple comorbidities and relapses from prior lines of treatment, who experienced a long-lasting progression-free survival. After initial diagnosis, standard treatment protocols with surgery and subsequent adjuvant radiochemotherapy were administered, followed by a short course of oral pazopanib at the patient's request, which led to a rapid relapse. Afterwards, the patient received trabectedin for 22 months, achieving disease control with good quality of life over an extended period of time...

Management of soft tissue sarcoma is increasingly subtype-dependent. Surgery is recommended for uterine leiomyosarcoma, with trabectedin being the preferred option for advanced disease when the treatment goal is long-term tumor stabilization. Liposarcoma subgroups are characterized by distinctive morphologies and genetics, different patterns of disease progression and clinical behavior, and variable responses to treatment. Genetic analysis of sarcomas has provided insights into pathogenesis with potential for developing new molecular targets...

Surgery (+ radiation therapy in selected cases) is standard treatment for adult-type localized soft tissue sarcoma (STS). Accumulating randomized clinical evidence also supports adjuvant chemotherapy as a treatment option, although this remains contentious. Doxorubicin (± ifosfamide) is the standard first-line systemic treatment for advanced STS; however, newer chemotherapeutic agents may improve outcomes achieved with single-agent doxorubicin. In a Phase II study, adding olaratumab to doxorubicin markedly improved overall survival...

Therapy-induced senescence is a major cellular response to chemotherapy in solid tumors. Senescent tumor cells acquire a secretory phenotype, or SASP, and produce pro-inflammatory factors, whose expression is largely under NF-κB transcriptional control. Secreted factors play a positive role in driving antitumor immunity, but also exert negative influences on the microenvironment, and promote tumor growth and metastasis. Moreover, subsets of cancer cells can escape the senescence arrest, driving tumor recurrence after treatments...

The most widely accepted treatment for cutaneous angiosarcoma (CAS) is wide local excision and postoperative radiation to decrease the risk of recurrence. Positive surgical margins and large tumors (T2, >5 cm) are known to be associated with poor prognosis. Moreover, T2 tumors are known to be associated with positive surgical margins. According to previous reports, the majority of CAS patients in Japan had T2 tumors, whereas less than half of the patients in the studies from western countries did so. Consequently, the reported 5-year overall survival of Japanese CAS patients without distant metastasis was only 9%, lower than that for stage-IV melanoma...

AIMS: Epithelioid sarcoma is a soft tissue sarcoma associated with a high rate of local recurrence after wide resection and high incidence of distant metastasis. Little is known about the clinical course and response to systemic treatments in epithelioid sarcoma patients. We carried out a retrospective analysis of clinical data from epithelioid sarcoma patients to provide a reference for the design of future epithelioid sarcoma-specific studies. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data from patients with epithelioid sarcoma entered in prospective multi-sarcoma phase II/III trials were pooled: EORTC trial 62012 (doxorubicin versus doxorubicin/ifosfamide), 62043 (pazopanib), 62072 (pazopanib versus placebo) and 62091 (doxorubicin versus trabectedin)...

PURPOSE: Trabectedin is one of the few active agents in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) but hepatotoxicity is frequent and represents a dose-limiting factor. Protective strategies aiming at counteracting this important side effect have a crucial clinical impact. Due to its antioxidant properties, N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has a recognized hepatoprotective effect and this provides the rationale for testing NAC in the management of trabectedin-induced hepatotoxicity. METHODS: Patients with recurrent or metastatic soft tissue sarcoma, consecutively observed at our institution, who were considered eligible to trabectedin, received concomitant NAC if they had impaired hepatic or renal function at baseline or developed hepatotoxicity during treatment...

The improvement of the pharmacological profile of lipophilic drug formulations is one of the main successes achieved using nanoparticles (NPs) in medicine. However, the complex synthesis procedure and numerous post-processing steps hamper the cost-effective use of these formulations. In this work, an approach which requires only a syringe to produce self-assembling biodegradable and biocompatible poly(caprolactone)-based NPs is developed. The effective synthesis of monodisperse NPs has been made possible by the optimization of the block-copolymer synthesized via a combination of ring opening polymerization and reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer polymerization...

Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a rare, yet highly malignant, type of soft tissue sarcoma (STS), for which survival has not improved significantly during the past years. In this review, we focus on systemic treatment in adults. Compared to other STS, SS are relatively chemosensitive. Ifosfamide and ifosfamide combinations are active in different lines of treatment. In high-risk extremity and chest wall STS, neoadjuvant doxorubicin and ifosfamide has shown as much activity as high-dose ifosfamide. There are indications that combination chemotherapy with doxorubicin and ifosfamide in this setting improves outcome...

Background: Uterine leiomyosarcoma (uLMS) is a rare tumor that accounts for 1% of all uterine malignancies. In spite of adequate surgical resection of uLMS, even in the early stage, patients remain at high risk for local and distant recurrence. Therefore, the treatment of advanced uLMS represents a considerable challenge. Methods: We report the case of a 47-year-old woman who presented with uLMS with abnormal vaginal bleeding. Results: The patient underwent a total hysterectomy and bilateral adnexectomy, which was followed by 1 year progression-free survival without adjuvant therapy...

Pulmonary artery intimal sarcoma (PAIS) is a very rare tumour with a very poor prognosis. In advanced stages, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are poorly efficient, and no standard chemotherapy guideline is currently available. Here, we report on a 37-year-old woman with PAIS initially treated with surgical resection who developed metastatic relapse refractory to anthracycline-based chemotherapy, then trabectedin, then pazopanib. The patient was then given carboplatin-vinorelbine chemotherapy. The treatment was well tolerated, and, rapidly, a CT scan showed an objective response that lasted 8 months despite the 4th therapeutic line...

OBJECTIVES: Low body mass index (BMI) and/or low lean body mass have been shown to be risk factors for chemotherapy-related toxicities in a number of different cancers. However, no data are available regarding the role of BMI as a risk factor for developing toxicities related to the novel anticancer agent, trabectedin, in patients with soft-tissue sarcoma (STS). We evaluated the role of BMI as a risk factor for trabectedin-related toxicity in patients with STS. METHODS: Data from 51 patients with metastatic/advanced STS treated with trabectedin after progression on ≥1 anthracycline ± ifosfamide regimen were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of trabectedin rechallenge. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In the T-DIS trial (NCT0130309), after the 6 initial cycles of trabectedin, patients who were free from progressive disease (PD) were randomly assigned either to continuous treatment with trabectedin (C arm) or therapy interruption (I arm). Patients randomized in the interruption arm were allowed to restart trabectedin in case of PD. Herein we report an update of the impact of trabectedin discontinuation after subsequent rechallenge...

In patients with recurrent ovarian cancer, the choice of second-line therapy is complex. Several factors have to be considered, such as platinum-free interval (PFI), residual toxicity from the previous treatments, BRCA1/2 gene mutation status. Trebectedin is a minor groove DNA binder derived from a marine organism that has shown efficacy in different settings in ovarian cancer therapy. It has been approved in the treatment of partially platinum sensitive (PPS) (PFI between 6 and 12 months) relapsed ovarian cancer according to the statistically significant progression-free survival (7...

Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDA) is characterized by a complex tumor microenvironment that supports its progression, aggressiveness and resistance to therapies. The delicate interplay between cancer and immune cells creates the conditions for PDA development, particularly due to the functional suppression of T cell anti-tumor effector activity. However, some of the mechanisms involved in this process are still poorly understood. In this study, we analyze whether the functional and epigenetic profile of T cells that infiltrate PDA is modulated by the microenvironment, and in particular by tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs)...

Telomeres are specialized nucleoprotein structures responsible for protecting chromosome ends in order to prevent the loss of genomic information. Telomere maintenance is required for achieving immortality by neoplastic cells. While most cancer cells rely on telomerase re-activation for linear chromosome maintenance and sustained proliferation, a significant population of cancers (10-15%) employs telomerase-independent strategies, collectively referred to as Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres (ALT). ALT mechanisms involve different types of homology-directed telomere recombination and synthesis...
