ABSTRACT BACKGROUND Metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) outcomes continue to improve, but they vary significantly by race and ethnicity. We hypothesize that these disparities arise from unequal access to care. MATERIALS AND METHODS The Harris Health System (HHS) is an integrated health delivery network that provides medical care to the underserved, predominantly minority population of Harris County, Texas. As the largest HHS facility and an affiliate of Baylor College of Medicine’s Dan L. Duncan...

ABSTRACT Background FOLFIRINOX is an option for fit patients with metastatic (MPC) and locally advanced unresectable (LAPC) pancreatic cancer. However, no criteria reliably identify patients with better outcome. Patients and Methods We investigated putative prognostic factors among 137 MPC/LAPC patients treated with triplet chemotherapy. Association with 6-month survival status (primary endpoint) was assessed by multivariate logistic regression models. A nomogram predicting the risk of death at ...

Abstract Purpose Although neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy (CRT) achieves low local recurrence rates in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC), it raises a lot of concerns about long-term anal and sexual functions. We explored the efficacy of preoperative chemotherapy with mFOLFOXIRI in patients with LARC. Patients and Methods Patients with LARC evaluated by pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were enrolled in this trial. All received four to six cycles of mFOLFOXIRI. MRI was performed to asses...

Abstract Background The impact of primary tumor site on overall survival in stage IV colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with single-organ metastases to the liver or lung has not been studied. Furthermore, the prognostic significance of commonly tested genetic variants such as KRAS mutation and microsatellite instability (MSI) are not well-described in this population. Methods This National Cancer Database was used to identify 38,328 patients with CRC that presented with synchronous metastases to t...

Abstract Background Radiographic prediction of PCI can improve patient selection for cytoreductive surgery. We aimed to determine the correlation of CT-predicted PCI (CT-PCI) and MRI-predicted PCI (MRI-PCI) with intraoperative-PCI, and if a preoperative-PCI cutoff is associated with incomplete cytoreduction. Patients and Methods Patients from the US HIPEC Collaborative (2000-17) with appendiceal, colorectal, or peritoneal mesothelioma (PM) histology who underwent cytoreductive surgery were inclu...

Abstract Background Small bowel adenocarcinomas (SBAs) are rare tumors. Management of SBA is extrapolated from colorectal cancer treatments. Recent evidence suggests that the biology and molecular features of SBA differ from colorectal cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the management and outcome of SBA patients. Patients and Methods The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) was queried for patients with SBA between 2004 and 2013 using ICD-O-3 histology code 8140/3 and topography codes C17...

Abstract Background There is no standardised assessment of symptomatic events in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), despite disease symptoms impacting treatment decisions. Data from 3 first-line panitumumab in mCRC trials were retrospectively analysed to assess whether early tumour shrinkage (ETS) and depth of response (DpR) are associated with time to occurrence of tumour-related symptoms. Patients and Methods Patients with RAS wild-type mCRC from PRIME, PEAK and study ‘314 were included. ETS...

Abstract Background: KRAS mutations occur in 40% of colorectal cancers (CRCs), affecting the efficacy of agents targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor. However, the effect of KRAS mutation status on the activity of non-epidermal growth factor receptor-targeting chemotherapy has not been fully elucidated. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of KRAS status on the activity of different chemotherapeutic regimens. Patients and Methods: A retrospective chart review of chemot...
