How to treat Recurrent Cancer
How to treat Recurrent Cancer Current treatment of recurrent cancer is not optimal since medicine ignores that organism resists the tumor. Host resistance may be weak yet it is significant. Obviously if host resistance is high patient requires less drugs and vice versa. Here is an example of therapy which considers host resistance. A woman leaving mammography with a localized breast tumor is treated and tumor is removed. In most women treatment will leave behind tumor remnants too small to be detected. They will grow and later on present as recurrent tumors. The question is how to treat them optimally? I maintain that breast cancer is driven by a virus to which it responds with a tumor. During an aggressive virus infection tumor grows faster and vice versa. I regard tumor as biomarker of two processes: 1. Severity of virus infection 2. Host resistance. Once cancer recurs it is essentially incurable, and the only therapeutic objective is dormancy induction. Cancer dormancy has two manifestations: 1. Tumor stops growing or grows extremely slowly. 2. Tumor is invisible Dormancy induction requires small drug doses. You start with a small dose. Rise it gradually until dormancy is achieved. The initial small dose depends on the time of tumor recurrence. The later tumor recurs the smaller dose is needed

Metastatic Ovarian Cancer
Sylvia De Vries was diagnosed with Stage III-C Ovarian Cancer in October 2003. She had major surgery to remove her cancer-infected reproductive organs and her appendix, followed by 6 rounds of Carboplatin Taxol chemotherapy. She went into remission until December 2009, and commenced Carboplatin Taxol chemotherapy once again for her metastases. After 3 failed treatments, she was put on 6 rounds of Calyx, then Gemzar, which ended up attacking her bone marrow, for which she had a hard time. On August 2, 2010, her Canadian oncologist deemed her terminal and gave her approximately 2 months to live, but she and her husband were not prepared to accept that. Her husband began researching for other alternative cures and was impressed by the Issels Treatment. They also talked to another woman from Windsor, Ontario, who had experienced the treatment. In October 14, 2010 Sylvia came to the Issels Treatment Center in a very frail state, in a wheelchair, and unable to walk. In her own words: "In less than 3 weeks I was able to walk 6 blocks to the ocean from here...The doctors are very caring, they're very aggressive with their treatment, they're very hands-on. You're not a number." Her tumor marker Ca-125 was 141 when she started the Issels Treatment, and in less than 3 weeks it dropped down to 77.9. She feels stronger, more vibrant, and feel alive again. "I know I'm going to be healed. This is the place to be."

Looking Ahead to Ovarian Cancer Hopes for 2018
Oliver Dorigo, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Oncology), Stanford University Medical Center, talks about the direction of research in the ovarian cancer field going into 2018 and beyond. He shares his excitement about trials that will further investigate the efficacy of PARP inhibitors, and focus on immunotherapy. He speaks with enthusiasm about the potential to “engineer immunity” by taking a person’s T-cells and redirecting them against tumor tissue. Dorigo emphasizes the need for better diagnostic tools to detect ovarian cancer. “The survival rate in stage 1 ovarian cancer, those cancers confined to the ovary, is over 90 percent,” he said. “If we can find technologies that allow us to find those ovarian cancers early on, I think we will make a huge step forward.”

Carolyn’s Ovarian Cancer Story | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Carolyn was diagnosed with recurrent ovarian cancer. She describes her care and recovery at Dana-Farber, and how that experience has inspired her to become an oncology nurse. Learn more about how the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber treats patients like Carolyn who have ovarian cancer or other gynecologic cancers: http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Gynecological-Cancer-Treatment-Center.aspx Transcription: Carolyn: My name is Carolyn. I grew up in Boston all my life, and I am a huge Red Sox fan and Patriots fan. In January of 2012, I began nursing school in Nashville, Tennessee. Text: Something didn’t feel right. Carolyn: I began experiencing symptoms of what I thought were a urinary tract infection and was told I needed to go for a CT scan. I came back and received a call from my primary telling me that neither she nor the radiologist were really… They were unsure of what they were looking at. There were masses throughout my abdomen. A couple of days later, after a biopsy, I was told that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. I met my team from Dana-Farber who ultimately performed the surgery, and then I went on to have six rounds of chemotherapy. I spent the next year or so really recovering from chemotherapy and really just tried to put my life back together and go on living normally. I was getting ready to start school in September 2014 when I started experiencing symptoms that just didn’t feel right. I found there was, in fact, a mass on my colon. It was really discouraging to find out that my cancer was back, but I was also really confident in the care that I was receiving. My doctors had always been up front with me that a recurrence was a possibility. Text: Carolyn was offered a clinical trial for women with recurrent ovarian cancer. Carolyn: I was able to take part in using this ACE-inhibitor, which is traditionally for breast cancer patients, but they had found a link between this working for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. So, I am benefitting from the very research that Dana-Farber does here. Dana-Farber is really like a second home to me. It’s weird to say that I look forward to coming here, but I really do. I can’t say enough about the doctors and the nurses that have cared for me. They’re just wonderful people, and I consider them sort of family now. When I was in nursing school, I used to think I knew what kind of nurse I wanted to be, and after being here at Dana-Farber and seeing the care that I’ve received, I really know what a good nurse is now. My hope is to become an oncology nurse. I would really like to work in the field that I’ve been so immersed in for the last three years.

About Ovarian Cancer Treatment Lynparza
Lynparza (olaparib) is an approved cancer treatment for certain types of advanced ovarian cancers associated with defective BRCA genes. In this new cancer education video, oncologist Dr. Stephen Lemon talks about how Lynparza works, which types of ovarian cancer patients it benefits and what types of sides effects patients may experience from the treatment. As a PARP inhibitor, #Lynparza is the first drug of its kind to be approved in the US. PARP inhibitors are class of medication that offers promise for treating BRCA related cancers. These drugs block an enzyme used by cells to repair damage to their DNA. For women who do not carry the BRCA mutation, PARP inhibitors may work by keeping cancer cells from repairing themselves once they've been damaged by chemotherapy treatment, while sparing healthy cells. These PARP inhibitors may be very effective for patients with BRCA mutations, as their tumor cells will already have problems repairing DNA and the PARP inhibitors will make this even worse. Lynparza is marketed by AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. #DrStephenLemon is a medical oncologist in private practice and is not associated with AstraZeneca. #OvarianCancer #StephenLemonMD Dr Stephen Lemon is medical oncologist who now practices at Overlake Cancer Center Bellevue WA. He produces cancer information videos and web related cancer education projects. He invites you to follow his ongoing work at https://www.lightersideofcancer.com/

New hope for ovarian cancer
A decade ago, women diagnosed with ovarian cancer had few options for treatment. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation were standard practice. Those therapies are still in use today, but, thanks to research and new technologies, ovarian cancer patients have additional, and sometimes more effective, options for treatment.

Ovarian Cancer: Progression and Treatment Options
Dr. Matt McDonald discusses the progression of ovarian cancer and how it is treated. Matt McDonald, MD: Unfortunately in this day and age, the majority of ovarian cancers present at the late stage. Statistically 80% of all ovarian cancers present at an advanced stage either stage 3 or 4. Treatment options for those patients usually requires a combination of a surgery and chemotherapy. New advances in ovarian cancer at this point in time really rely upon what we call adjuvant treatment for ovary cancer and what I mean by that is surgery for ovarian cancer as for several, several decades, its main goal is to what we call surgically remove the cancer and what that means is remove all of the macroscopic or all of the disease that we can see or touch at the time of surgery. Many times we can't remove every single piece of cancer that we can see or feel, but the goal is to leave as little a nodule of cancer behind following surgery and what we strive to do is leave any cancer behind that will be smaller than 1 cm that's the goal and from a surgical standpoint that may require removal of parts of the intestinal tract or urinary tract, etc. The surgery's goal is to remove the large pieces of cancer and leave the smallest amount of residual tumor behind as we can and that's what chemotherapy is for. Chemotherapy works better on small implants of cancer than it does on large implants of cancer. For many patients, we are employing something called intraperitoneal chemotherapy which is when a patient receiving chemotherapy receives a combination of some intravenous chemotherapy which is a standard traditional approach and some patients will receive a combination where they also receive intraperitoneal chemotherapy or a lot of patients consider this a belly wash chemotherapy where there is a port implanted in the abdomen where we infuse chemotherapy directly into the abdominal cavity and in patient that can tolerate and be administered intraperitoneal chemotherapy, it has been shown that these patients actually do better and have a longer survival rate. And so on this day and age that's what most of us strive to do is to have an excellent surgical result followed by a combination intravenous and intraperitoneal chemotherapy. The challenge to the medical environment is to catch ovarian cancer at an earlier stage and there are some new blood tests that are doing a better job with that than we did ten years ago. There are some new screening algorithms or triage algorithms for an ovarian mass that help patients get to a trained professional such as GYN oncologist for their initial operation which in this time still is the most important aspect of a woman's care with ovarian cancer is that her initial diagnosis and initial management is performed by a GYN oncologist. Most notably there are some blood tests. One's called the OVA 1, which is a blood test that screens for five different analytes in a woman's blood to help us dictate whether or not an ovarian mass is cancer or not and that test does do a better job than some of the other more traditional approaches that we use. Again another challenge to women that have been found to have an ovarian mass is to definitely seek out the right physician. The good news is a vast majority of an ovarian mass that is seen on CT scan or ultrasound is benign. It is not a cancer, the vast majority of a time. The challenge for a medical team is to weed out who are those cancers and who is not and certainly seek second opinions, seek out GYN oncologists, if you have an ovarian mass for a second opinion or a surgical consultation, because it's important that you get the best preoperative evaluation in the event that it is a cancer that you are taking care of by the right medical professional.

A New Treatment for Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is a rare but devastating diagnosis. One, surgeons say, they are finding new ways to treat. And while the technology isn’t new, how it’s being used, is. “We have used it in the past for gastrointestinal tumors of very specific types,” said Dr. Edward Grendys, a gynecologic oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Health. The technology is called HIPEC, which stands for hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. A cancer treatment that’s now able to be used on patients with ovarian cancer. “With the installation of heated chemotherapy, we actually are showing another step forward in both survival as well as progression-free intervals in women who have advanced disease,” said Dr. Grendys. Patients who qualify for this procedure will typically undergo chemotherapy before coming to surgery. Once in surgery, doctors will first use a laparoscope to look for any remaining signs of cancer. “We will place a laparoscope on the inside. We visually can inspect the abdominal cavity, with that we can make a judgment on if we can remove the tumor, and about 80 percent of the time we can,” he said. Then surgeons will activate the HIPEC machine. “Two catheters are placed into the abdominal cavity. We close up the abdominal cavity as if we are completing the operation and then literally cycle heated chemotherapy through the abdominal cavity-that is preheated, predetermined, and premeasured,” said Dr. Grendys. The chemotherapy will cycle through the abdomen for 90 minutes to eliminate any remaining cancer cells. After that, surgeons remove the HIPEC and complete the operation. After surgery, patients may need three more cycles of chemotherapy before they are finished with treatment. A new procedure that doctors say is saving lives and giving hope to women with advanced stages of ovarian cancer.

Rucaparib boosts PFS in BRCA-mutated recurrent ovarian cancer
Sandro Pignata, MD, PhD, from the IRCCS National Cancer Institute, Naples, Italy, presents a summary of the data from the ARIEL 3 trial on rucaparib in ovarian cancer patients, presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2017 Conference in Madrid, Spain. Rucaparib maintenance therapy increases progression-free survival in BRCA mutant recurrent ovarian cancer by 77%, according to the late-breaking results. Most ovarian cancer presents as advanced disease and 80% of those patients will recur after first line treatment. Patients often respond again to chemotherapy, particularly platinum-based, but they almost inevitably relapse again and eventually die of their disease. Maintenance treatments are needed to reduce recurrence in patients who have already relapsed. The PARP enzyme helps to initiate the repair of DNA damage so that cells can continue to divide. DNA repair processes are inherently impaired in tumour cells with BRCA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as rucaparib, block DNA repair and cells with BRCA mutations die. Dr Pignata further discusses how these positive data will benefit patients, giving them more choice with effective treatments.

Finding Signs of Ovarian Cancer
From http://www.beetmedicine.tv/2009/04/ovarian-cancer-is-not-silent-cancer-it-whispers.html: Ovarian cancer is rare and usually discovered at a late stage. The signs are symptoms are subtle and not dissimilar from other abdominal or pelvic complaints. The key is that they are persistent. Dr. Poynor describes this not as silent cancer but, a cancer which whispers. Workup includes a pelvic exam, a transvaginal ultrasound and possibly a CAT scan. CA 125 is a blood test which is useful in following women who have been treated for an ovarian cancer to monitor a recurrence. It is not sensitive enough to detect early ovarian cancer nor specific enough because it may be elevated in benign conditions. But, it can be used until better markers become available.

Niraparib as maintenance for platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer - results from ENGOT-OV16/NOVA trial
Sven Mahner, MD, PhD of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf Hamburg, Germany talks about the Phase III trial of maintenance therapy with niraparib vs placebo in patients with platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian cancer (ENGOT-OV16/NOVA trial, NCT01847274). Dr Mahner explains that ovarian cancer is a common disease, which in the first-line setting, needs extensive surgery and chemotherapy. However, the majority of patients recur and they are re-treated with chemotherapy. The trial looked at maintenance therapy with niraparib after recurrent chemotherapy. According to Dr Mahner, they observed a large benefit for patients receiving niraparib maintenance in both, the germline BRCA (gBRCA) mutation and non-gBRCA mutated patient populations. Recorded at the 2016 annual meeting of the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO), held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

CA-125 Blood Test:  Normal range & Its Role as an  Ovarian Cancer Test
#CA125#Ovariancancer Full form of CA 125 is Cancer Antigen 125.It is a tumor marker for ovarian cancer. Normal levels are less than 35 U/L. Increased levels are seen in ovarian cancer. CA 125 is a mucinous protein present on the epithelial surfaces of the eye, respiratory tract, ovaries CA 125 is specifically seen increased in epithelial cell cancers. More over it has higher chances of being positive only in advanced stages of cancer .It is NOT USED for screening of ovarian cancer as it is not sensitive and specific. It needs to correlated clinically and always should be correlated with other diagnostic tests. Role in Endometriosis: It is not a sensitive marker for endometriosis. Levels are greater than 35 are especially seen in stage 3&4 of endometriosis. Levels greater than 100 U/mL indicate extensive pelvic adhesion's. However the most accurate test for diagnosis of endometriosis is Laproscopy(Direct Visualisation). NEW MARKER HE4 - Human Epididymis Protein 4 (HE4) is a relatively new marker for Ovarian malignancy and indicates gene over expression. It is used to monitor recurrence & disease progression in patients with Epithelial ovarian malignancy. HE4 when used in conjunction with CA 125 helps in estimating the Risk Of Ovarian Malignancy (ROMA) in premenopausal / postmenopausal females presenting with an adnexal mass.
