      Pages: 19 - 33
      Abstract: The most recent version of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Clinical Practice Guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of gastric cancer (GC) was published in 2016, and covered the management and treatment of local, locoregional, locally advanced and metastatic disease. At the ESMO Asia Meeting in November 2017 it was decided by both ESMO and The Japanese Society of Medical Oncology (JSMO) to convene a special guidelines meeting immediately after the JSMO Annual Meeting in 2018. The aim was to adapt the ESMO 2016 guidelines to take into account the ethnic differences associated with the treatment of metastatic GC in Asian patients. These guidelines represent the consensus opinions reached by experts in the treatment of patients with metastatic GC representing the oncological societies of Japan (JSMO), China (CSCO), Korea (KSMO), Malaysia (MOS), Singapore (SSO) and Taiwan (TOS). The voting was based on scientific evidence and was independent of both the current treatment practices and the drug availability and reimbursement situations in the individual participating Asian countries.

      Abstract: The most recent version of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Clinical Practice Guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of oesophageal cancer was published in 2016, and covered the management and treatment of local/locoregional disease, limited disease, locally advanced disease and the management of advanced/metastatic disease. At the ESMO Asia Meeting in November 2017 it was decided by both ESMO and the Japanese Society of Medical Oncology (JSMO) to convene a special guidelines meeting immediately after the JSMO Annual Meeting in 2018. The aim was to adapt the ESMO 2016 guidelines to take into account the ethnic differences associated with the treatment of metastatic oesophageal cancer in Asian patients. These guidelines represent the consensus opinions reached by experts in the treatment of patients with metastatic oesophageal cancer representing the oncological societies of Japan (JSMO), China (CSCO), Korea (KSMO), Malaysia (MOS), Singapore (SSO) and Taiwan (TOS). The voting was based on scientific evidence, and was independent of both the current treatment practices and the drug availability and reimbursement situations in the individual participating Asian countries.

  • Development of tumor mutation burden as an immunotherapy biomarker:
           utility for the oncology clinic
    • Authors: Chan T; Yarchoan M, Jaffee E, et al.
      Pages: 44 - 56
      Abstract: BackgroundTreatment with immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) with agents such as anti-programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1), anti-programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1), and/or anti-cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4) can result in impressive response rates and durable disease remission but only in a subset of patients with cancer. Expression of PD-L1 has demonstrated utility in selecting patients for response to ICB and has proven to be an important biomarker for patient selection. Tumor mutation burden (TMB) is emerging as a potential biomarker. However, refinement of interpretation and contextualization is required.Materials and methodsIn this review, we outline the evolution of TMB as a biomarker in oncology, delineate how TMB can be applied in the clinic, discuss current limitations as a diagnostic test, and highlight mechanistic insights unveiled by the study of TMB. We review available data to date studying TMB as a biomarker for response to ICB by tumor type, focusing on studies proposing a threshold for TMB as a predictive biomarker for ICB activity.ResultsHigh TMB consistently selects for benefit with ICB therapy. In lung, bladder and head and neck cancers, the current predictive TMB thresholds proposed approximate 200 non-synonymous somatic mutations by whole exome sequencing (WES). PD-L1 expression influences response to ICB in high TMB tumors with single agent PD-(L)1 antibodies; however, response may not be dependent on PD-L1 expression in the setting of anti-CTLA4 or anti-PD-1/CTLA-4 combination therapy. Disease-specific TMB thresholds for effective prediction of response in various other malignancies are not well established.ConclusionsTMB, in concert with PD-L1 expression, has been demonstrated to be a useful biomarker for ICB selection across some cancer types; however, further prospective validation studies are required. TMB determination by selected targeted panels has been correlated with WES. Calibration and harmonization will be required for optimal utility and alignment across all platforms currently used internationally. Key challenges will need to be addressed before broader use in different tumor types.

  • Immune biomarkers of response to immune-checkpoint inhibitors in head and
           neck squamous cell carcinoma
    • Authors: Oliva M; Spreafico A, Taberna M, et al.
      Pages: 57 - 67
      Abstract: Anti-programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) agents have become the standard of care for platinum-refractory recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and are currently being evaluated in various disease settings. However, despite the gain in overall survival seen in some of the clinical trials, the majority of patients display primary resistance and do not benefit from these agents. Taking into consideration the potentially severe immune-related toxicities and their high cost, the search for predictive biomarkers of response is crucial. Besides Programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) expression, other biomarkers such as immune infiltration, tumor mutational burden or immune-gene expression profiling have been explored, but none of them has been validated in this disease. Among these, the microbiota has recently garnered tremendous interest since it has proven to influence the efficacy of PD-1 blockade in some tumor types. With the accumulating evidence on the effect of the microbiota in HNSCC tumorigenesis and progression, the study of its potential role as a predictive immune biomarker is warranted. This review examines the available evidence on emerging immune predictive biomarkers of response to anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy in HNSCC, introducing the microbiota and its potential use as a predictive immune biomarker in this disease.

           molecular subgroups of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma: implications
           for immunotherapy
    • Authors: Chen Y; Wang Y, Lv J, et al.
      Pages: 68 - 75
      Abstract: BackgroundTargeting the immune checkpoint pathway has demonstrated antitumor cytotoxicity in treatment-refractory head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSC). To understand the molecular mechanisms underpinning its antitumor response, we characterized the immune landscape of HNSC by their tumor and stromal compartments to identify novel immune molecular subgroups.Patients and methodsA training cohort of 522 HNSC samples from the Cancer Genome Atlas profiled by RNA sequencing was analyzed. We separated gene expression patterns from tumor, stromal, and immune cell gene using a non-negative matrix factorization algorithm. We correlated the expression patterns with a set of immune-related gene signatures, potential immune biomarkers, and clinicopathological features. Six independent datasets containing 838 HNSC samples were used for validation.ResultsApproximately 40% of HNSCs in the cohort (211/522) were identified to show enriched inflammatory response, enhanced cytolytic activity, and active interferon-γ signaling (all, P < 0.001). We named this new molecular class of tumors the Immune Class. Then we found it contained two distinct microenvironment-based subtypes, characterized by markers of active or exhausted immune response. The Exhausted Immune Class was characterized by enrichment of activated stroma and anti-inflammatory M2 macrophage signatures, WNT/transforming growth factor-β signaling pathway activation and poor survival (all, P < 0.05). An enriched proinflammatory M1 macrophage signature, enhanced cytolytic activity, abundant tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes, high human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and favorable prognosis were associated with Active Immune Class (all, P < 0.05). The robustness of these immune molecular subgroups was verified in the validation cohorts, and Active Immune Class showed potential response to programmed cell death-1 blockade (P = 0.01).ConclusionsThis study revealed a novel Immune Class in HNSC; two subclasses characterized by active or exhausted immune responses were also identified. These findings provide new insights into tailoring immunotherapeutic strategies for different HNSC subgroups.

  • Quantitative lymph node burden as a ‘very-high-risk’ factor
           identifying head and neck cancer patients benefiting from postoperative
    • Authors: Zumsteg Z; Luu M, Kim S, et al.
      Pages: 76 - 84
      Abstract: BackgroundAdjuvant chemoradiation (CRT) is standard for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients with positive margins or extranodal extension (ENE) following surgery. However, emerging evidence suggests the number of positive lymph nodes (LNs) is the dominant determinant of survival in non-oropharyngeal HNSCC and thus may better identify those benefiting from treatment intensification.Patients and methodsPatients from the National Cancer Database diagnosed with non-oropharyngeal HNSCC (oral cavity, larynx, hypopharynx) between 2004 and 2014 and undergoing surgical resection, neck dissection, and postoperative radiotherapy (RT) were included. Multivariable regression with first-order interaction terms was used to model the interaction between postoperative CRT and continuous number of positive LNs with respect to overall survival.ResultsIn total, 7144 patients met inclusion criteria. In multivariable analysis, increasing number of positive LNs was associated with both increasing mortality (P < 0.001) and increasing benefit from postoperative CRT versus RT alone (interaction P < 0.001). While there was no benefit from postoperative CRT in patients with 0–2 LN+ [hazard ratio (HR) 0.96, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.86–1.07, P = 0.47], increased benefit was seen in those with 3–5 LN+ (HR 0.84, 95% CI 0.70–1.00, P = 0.05) and those with ≥6 LN+ (HR 0.65, 95% CI 0.51–0.82, P < 0.001) in multivariable models. By contrast, margin status and ENE did not reliably identify patients benefitting from postoperative CRT based on statistical tests of interaction. Even in patients with ENE, positive margins, or both, only those with ≥6 LN+ had improved survival with postoperative CRT.ConclusionIncreasing metastatic nodal burden was associated with increased benefit from CRT compared with RT alone, surpassing conventional high-risk factors in identifying patients benefiting from CRT. Stratification by metastatic LN number may characterize a very-high-risk patient cohort best suited for treatment intensification.

  • Genomewide copy number alteration screening of circulating plasma DNA:
           potential for the detection of incipient tumors
    • Authors: Lenaerts L; Vandenberghe P, Brison N, et al.
      Pages: 85 - 95
      Abstract: BackgroundEarly cancer diagnosis might improve survival rates. As circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) carries cancer-specific modifications, it has great potential as a noninvasive biomarker for detection of incipient tumors.Patients and methodsWe collected cell-free DNA (cfDNA) samples of 1002 elderly without a prior malignancy, carried out whole-genome massive parallel sequencing and scrutinized the mapped sequences for the presence of (sub)chromosomal copy number alterations (CNAs) predictive for a malignancy. When imbalances were detected, 6-monthly clinical follow-up was carried out.ResultsIn 3% of participants chromosomal imbalances were detected. Follow-up analyses, including whole-body MRI screening, confirmed the presence of five hematologic malignancies: one Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), stage II; three non-HL (type chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Rai I–Binet A; type SLL, stage III; type mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue, stage I) and one myelodysplastic syndrome with excess blasts, stage II. The CNAs detected in cfDNA were tumor-specific. Furthermore, one case was identified with monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis, a potential precursor of B-cell malignancy. In 24 additional individuals, CNAs were identified but no cancer diagnosis was made. For 9 of them, the aberrant cfDNA profile originated from peripheral blood cells. For 15 others the origin of aberrations in cfDNA remains undetermined.Conclusion(s)Genomewide profiling of cfDNA in apparently healthy individuals enables the detection of incipient hematologic malignancies as well as clonal mosaicism with unknown clinical significance. CNA screening of cellular DNA of peripheral blood in elderly has established that clonal mosaicism for these chromosomal anomalies predicts a 5- to 10-fold enhanced risk of a subsequent cancer. We demonstrate that cfDNA screening detects CNAs, which are not only derived from peripheral blood, but even more from other tissues. Since the clinical relevance of clonal mosaics in other tissues remains unknown, long-term follow-up is warranted. Taken together, this study demonstrates that genomewide cfDNA analysis has potential as an unbiased screening approach for hematological malignancies and premalignant conditions.

  • Interpretation of time-to-event outcomes in randomized trials: an online
           randomized experiment
    • Authors: Weir I; Marshall G, Schneider J, et al.
      Pages: 96 - 102
      Abstract: BackgroundMultiple features in the presentation of randomized controlled trial (RCT) results are known to influence comprehension and interpretation. We aimed to compare interpretation of cancer RCTs with time-to-event outcomes when the reported treatment effect measure is the hazard ratio (HR), difference in restricted mean survival times (RMSTD), or both (HR+RMSTD). We also assessed the prevalence of misinterpretation of the HR.MethodsWe carried out a randomized experiment. We selected 15 cancer RCTs with statistically significant treatment effects for the primary outcome. We masked each abstract and created three versions reporting either the HR, RMSTD, or HR+RMSTD. We randomized corresponding authors of RCTs and medical residents and fellows to one of 15 abstracts and one of 3 versions. We asked how beneficial the experimental treatment was (0–10 Likert scale). All participants answered a multiple-choice question about interpretation of the HR. Participants were unaware of the study purpose.ResultsWe randomly allocated 160 participants to evaluate an abstract reporting the HR, 154 to the RMSTD, and 155 to both HR+RMSTD. The mean Likert score was statistically significantly lower in the RMSTD group when compared with the HR group (mean difference −0.8, 95% confidence interval, −1.3 to −0.4, P < 0.01) and when compared with the HR+RMSTD group (difference −0.6, −1.1 to −0.1, P = 0.05). In all, 47.2% (42.7%−51.8%) of participants misinterpreted the HR, with 40% equating it with a reduction in absolute risk.ConclusionMisinterpretation of the HR is common. Participants judged experimental treatments to be less beneficial when presented with RMSTD when compared with HR. We recommend that authors present RMST-based measures alongside the HR in reports of RCT results.

  • An adaptive population enrichment phase III trial of TRC105 and pazopanib
           versus pazopanib alone in patients with advanced angiosarcoma (TAPPAS
    • Authors: Mehta C; Liu L, Theuer C.
      Pages: 103 - 108
      Abstract: BackgroundMajor challenges in clinical trials of ultra-orphan oncology diseases include limited patient availability and paucity of reliable prior data for estimating the treatment effect and, therefore, determining optimal sample size. Angiosarcoma (AS), a particularly aggressive form of soft tissue sarcoma with an incidence of about 2000 cases per year in the United States and Europe is poorly addressed by current systemic therapies. Pazopanib, an inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) is approved for the treatment of AS, with modest benefit. TRC105 (carotuximab) is a monoclonal antibody to endoglin, an essential angiogenic target highly expressed on proliferating endothelium and both tumor vessels and tumor cells in AS, that has the potential to complement VEGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors. In a phase I/II study of soft tissue sarcoma, TRC105 combined safely with pazopanib and the combination demonstrated durable complete responses and encouraging progression-free survival (PFS). In addition, there was a suggestion of superior benefit in patients with cutaneous lesions versus those with the non-cutaneous lesions.Patients and methodsThis article describes the design of a recently initiated phase III trial of TRC105 And Pazopanib versus Pazopanib alone in patients with advanced AngioSarcoma (TAPPAS trial). Given the ultra-orphan status of the disease and the paucity of reliable prior data on PFS or overall survival (end points required for regulatory approval as a pivotal trial), an adaptive design incorporating population enrichment and sample size re-estimation was implemented. The design incorporated regulatory input from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency and proceeded following special protocol assessment designation by the FDA.ConclusionsIt is shown that the benefit of the adaptive design as compared with a conventional single-look design arises from the learning and subsequent improvements in power that occur after an unblinded analysis of interim data.Registered on Clinicaltrials.govNCT02979899.

  • Dose tailoring of adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer based on
           hematologic toxicities: further results from the prospective PANTHER study
           with focus on obese patients
    • Authors: Matikas A; Foukakis T, Moebus V, et al.
      Pages: 109 - 114
      Abstract: BackgroundAdjuvant chemotherapy (ACT) for breast cancer improves relapse-free survival (BCRFS) and overall survival. Differences in terms of efficacy and toxicity could partly be explained by the significant interpatient variability in pharmacokinetics which cannot be captured by dosing according to body surface area. Consequently, tailored dosing was prospectively evaluated in the PANTHER trial.Patients and methodsPANTHER is a multicenter, open-label, randomized phase III trial which compared tailored, dose-dense (DD) epirubicin/cyclophosphamide (E/C) and tailored docetaxel (D) (tDD) with standard interval 5-fluorouracil/E/C and D. The primary end point was BCRFS and the primary efficacy analysis has been previously published. In this secondary analysis, we aimed to retrospectively explore the concept of dose tailoring. Our two hypotheses were that BCRFS would not vary depending on the cumulative administered epirubicin dose; and that dose tailoring would lead to appropriate dosing and improved outcomes for obese patients, who are known to have worse prognosis and increased toxicity after DD ACT.ResultsPatients treated with tDD had similar BCRFS regardless of the cumulative epirubicin dose (P = 0.495), while obese patients in this group [body mass index (BMI) ≥30] had improved BCRFS compared with nonobese ones (BMI <30) [hazard ratio (HR) = 0.51, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.30–0.89, P = 0.02]. Moreover, tDD was associated with improved BCRFS compared with standard treatment only in obese patients (HR = 0.49, 95% CI 0.26–0.90, P = 0.022) but not in nonobese ones (HR = 0.79, 95% CI 0.60–1.04, P = 0.089). The differences were not formally statistically significant (P for interaction 0.175). There were no differences in terms of toxicity across the epirubicin dose levels or the BMI groups.ConclusionsDose tailoring is a feasible strategy that can potentially improve outcomes in obese patients without increasing toxicity and should be pursued in further clinical identifierNCT00798070.

  • Loss of function of NF1 is a mechanism of acquired resistance to endocrine
           therapy in lobular breast cancer
    • Authors: Sokol E; Feng Y, Jin D, et al.
      Pages: 115 - 123
      Abstract: BackgroundInvasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) as a disease entity distinct from invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) has merited focused studies of the genomic landscape, but those to date are largely limited to the assessment of early-stage cancers. Given that genomic alterations develop as acquired resistance to endocrine therapy, studies on refractory ILC are needed.Patients and methodsTissue from 336 primary-enriched, breast-biopsied ILC and 485 estrogen receptor (ER)-positive IDC and metastatic biopsy specimens from 180 ILC and 191 ER-positive IDC patients was assayed with hybrid-capture-based comprehensive genomic profiling for short variant, indel, copy number variants, and rearrangements in up to 395 cancer-related genes.ResultsWhereas ESR1 alterations are enriched in the metastases of both ILC and IDC compared with breast specimens, NF1 alterations are enriched only in ILC metastases (mILC). NF1 alterations are predominantly under loss of heterozygosity (11/14, 79%), are mutually exclusive with ESR1 mutations [odds ratio = 0.24, P < 0.027] and are frequently polyclonal in ctDNA assays. Assessment of paired specimens shows that NF1 alterations arise in the setting of acquired resistance. An in vitro model of CDH1 mutated ER-positive breast cancer demonstrates that NF1 knockdown confers a growth advantage in the presence of 4-hydroxy tamoxifen. Our study further identified a significant increase in tumor mutational burden (TMB) in mILCs relative to breast ILCs or metastatic IDCs (8.9% >20 mutations/mb; P < 0.001). Most TMB-high mILCs harbor an APOBEC trinucleotide signature (14/16; 88%).ConclusionsThis study identifies alteration of NF1 as enriched specifically in mILC. Mutual exclusivity with ESR1 alterations, polyclonality in relapsed ctDNA, and de novo acquisition suggest a role for NF1 loss in endocrine therapy resistance. Since NF1 loss leads to RAS/RAF kinase activation, patients may benefit from a matched inhibitor. Moreover, for an independent subset of mILC, TMB was elevated relative to breast ILC, suggesting possible benefit from immune checkpoint inhibitors.

  • Biomarker analysis beyond angiogenesis: RAS/RAF mutation status, tumour
           sidedness, and second-line ramucirumab efficacy in patients with
           metastatic colorectal carcinoma from RAISE—a global phase III study
    • Authors: Yoshino T; Portnoy D, Obermannová R, et al.
      Pages: 124 - 131
      Abstract: Background: Second-line treatment with ramucirumab+FOLFIRI improved overall survival (OS) versus placebo+FOLFIRI for patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma (CRC) [hazard ratio (HR)=0.84, 95% CI 0.73–0.98, P = 0.022]. Post hoc analyses of RAISE patient data examined the association of RAS/RAF mutation status and the anatomical location of the primary CRC tumour (left versus right) with efficacy parameters.Patients and methodsPatient tumour tissue was classified as BRAF mutant, KRAS/NRAS (RAS) mutant, or RAS/BRAF wild-type. Left-CRC was defined as the splenic flexure, descending and sigmoid colon, and rectum; right-CRC included transverse, ascending colon, and cecum.ResultsRAS/RAF mutation status was available for 85% of patients (912/1072) and primary tumour location was known for 94.4% of patients (1012/1072). A favourable and comparable ramucirumab treatment effect was observed for patients with RAS mutations (OS HR = 0.86, 95% CI 0.71–1.04) and patients with RAS/BRAF wild-type tumours (OS HR = 0.86, 95% CI 0.64–1.14). Among the 41 patients with BRAF-mutated tumours, the ramucirumab benefit was more notable (OS HR = 0.54, 95% CI 0.25–1.13), although, as with the other genetic sub-group analyses, differences were not statistically significant. Progression-free survival (PFS) data followed the same trend. Treatment-by-mutation status interaction tests (OS P = 0.523, PFS P = 0.655) indicated that the ramucirumab benefit was not statistically different among the mutation sub-groups, although the small sample size of the BRAF group limited the analysis. Addition of ramucirumab to FOLFIRI improved left-CRC median OS by 2.5 month over placebo (HR = 0.81, 95% CI 0.68–0.97); median OS for ramucirumab-treated patients with right-CRC was 1.1 month over placebo (HR = 0.97, 95% CI 0.75–1.26). The treatment-by-sub-group interaction was not statistically significant for tumour sidedness (P = 0.276).ConclusionsIn the RAISE study, the addition of ramucirumab to FOLFIRI improved patient outcomes, regardless of RAS/RAF mutation status, and tumour sidedness. Ramucirumab treatment provided a numerically substantial benefit in BRAF-mutated tumours, although the P-values were not statistically numberNCT01183780.

    • Authors: Carioli G; Malvezzi M, Bertuccio P, et al.
      Pages: 132 - 142
      Abstract: BackgroundPredicted cancer mortality figures and rates are useful for public health planning.Materials and methodsWe retrieved cancer death certification data for 10 major cancer sites and total cancers from the World Health Organization (WHO) database and population data from WHO and United Nations Population Division databases. We obtained figures for Russia, Israel, Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Korea, and Australia in 1970–2015. We predicted numbers of deaths by age group and age-standardized rates (world population) for 2018 by applying a linear regression to mortality data of each age group over the most recent trend segment identified by a joinpoint regression model.ResultsRussia had the highest predicted total cancer mortality rates, 158.5/100 000 men and 84.1/100 000 women. Men in the Philippines showed the lowest rates for 2018 (84.6/100 000) and Korean males the most favourable predicted fall (21% between 2012 and 2018). Women in Korea had the lowest total cancer predicted rate (52.5/100 000). Between 1993 and 2018, i.e. by applying the 1993 rates to populations in subsequent years, a substantial number of cancer deaths was avoided in Russia (1 000 000 deaths, 821 000 in men and 179 000 in women), Israel (40 000 deaths, 21 000 in men and 19 000 in women), Hong Kong (63 000 deaths, 40 000 in men and 23 000 in women), Japan (651 000 deaths, 473 000 in men and 178 000 in women), Korea (327 000 deaths, 250 000 in men and 77 000 in women), and Australia (181 000 deaths, 125 000 in men and 56 000 in women). No appreciable reduction in cancer deaths was found in the Philippines.ConclusionOverall, we predicted falls in cancer mortality. However, these are less marked and later compared with the European Union and United States. Substantial numbers of deaths were avoided in all countries considered except the Philippines. Lung cancer mortality remains exceedingly high in Russian men, despite recent falls.

      Abstract: The debate concerning perioperative chemotherapy use in localized soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is mired in a dead-end, following the results of a dozen of randomized studies completed by two meta-analyses. In the current guidelines [1], chemotherapy is not yet considered as a standard of care and may be proposed as an option in high-risk patients, currently imperfectly identified with classical factors as tumor size, depth and (Fédération Française des Centres de Lutte Contre le Cancer) FNCLCC grade [2]. This uncertainty may reflect the limits of these factors (in particular FNCLCC grade) for the precise identification of the high-risk patients’ population.
