There have been no major advances for the treatment of metastatic urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) in the last 30 years. Chemotherapy is still the standard of care. Patient outcomes, especially for those in whom chemotherapy is not effective or is poorly tolerated, remain poor. One hallmark of UBC is the presence of high rates of somatic mutations. These(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with metastatic urothelial carcinoma have few treatment options after failure of platinum-based chemotherapy. In this trial, we assessed treatment with atezolizumab, an engineered humanised immunoglobulin G1 monoclonal antibody that binds selectively to programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1), in this patient population. METHODS For this(More)
Carcinomas of an unknown primary origin (CUP) account for 3–5% of all malignancies and are thus among the ten most-frequent cancers worldwide. Having a specific and unique phenotype of early and usually aggressive metastatic dissemination with no identifiable primary tumor, CUP are a challenge for physicians. The diagnostic workup of patients with CUP(More)
BACKGROUND Androgen receptor (AR) signalling remains critically important in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) as confirmed by recent phase III trials, showing a survival advantage for abiraterone acetate and enzalutamide (MDV3100). The antitumour activity of abiraterone and prednisolone in patients pre-treated with enzalutamide is as(More)
BACKGROUND Cabazitaxel, abiraterone acetate (AA), and enzalutamide have been approved for the treatment of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) following docetaxel chemotherapy. Whether taxanes and next-generation androgen receptor (AR) axis inhibitors are cross-resistant or not is a subject of debate. OBJECTIVE To(More)
BACKGROUND Burnout syndrome occurs frequently amongst oncology healthcare workers. It has a detrimental effect on the patient-physician relationship. Little is known about the prevalence and causes of burnout amongst junior doctors in oncology. METHODS An anonymous questionnaire was sent out to every medical or radiation oncology or haematology resident(More)
BACKGROUND Corticosteroids have been used to mitigate mineralocorticoid-related effects and restore sensitivity to abiraterone acetate. Corticosteroids may also mediate glucocorticoid receptor or mutated androgen receptor activation and adversely influence outcome. OBJECTIVE This post hoc exploratory analysis investigated whether baseline corticosteroids(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have shown that skeletal muscle and adipose tissue are linked to overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS). Because targeted therapies have improved the outcome in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC), new prognostic parameters are required. The objective of the current study was to analyze whether body(More)
BACKGROUND 2-¹⁸fluoro-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) has been recommended in international guidelines in the evaluation of postchemotherapy seminoma residuals. Our trial was designed to validate these recommendations in a larger group of patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS FDG-PET studies in patients with metastatic seminoma and(More)
There is currently no standard treatment after first-line docetaxel-based chemotherapy for patients with castration-refractory prostate cancer (CRPC). Some patients are likely to discontinue first-line docetaxel-based chemotherapy because of either completed treatment or the occurrence of manageable side-effects. The aim of this study was to determine(More)
