Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Metastatic papillary renal cell carcinoma (mPRCC) is understudied. The disease is often aggressive and specific treatment options are lacking.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: mPRCC patients (n = 86) referred to three academic centres in Sweden and Germany in the years 2005-2015 were retrospectively identified from medical records. Statistical analyses included Kaplan-Meier curves and calculation of Cox proportional hazards, generating hazard ratios with 95% confidence intervals. The aim of the study was to evaluate overall survival (OS) of mPRCC patients treated outside of clinical trials in the era of targeted agents (TA) and to identify clinically useful prognostic factors.

RESULTS: Median OS of all mPRCC patients was 11.2 months. TA were used in 77% of the patients and associated with younger age and better Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (PS). Brain metastases were common (28%). Patients with synchronous or metachronous metastases had similar OS. Variables independently associated with risk of death included age ≥60 years, worse PS and ≥3 metastatic sites. The MSKCC criteria did not provide additional prognostic information. A subgroup analysis of TA-treated patients revealed an association of lymph node metastasis with risk of death in addition to the other prognostic factors.

CONCLUSION: OS in mPRCC remained short in the era of targeted agents. Age, PS, and number of metastatic sites provided independent prognostic information.

Abstract [en]

Background and purpose: Investigate effects of stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) or surgical metastasectomy (SM) on overall survival (OS) in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) in the era of targeted agents (TA).

Material and methods: mRCC patients (n = 117) treated with SRT (n = 57), SM (n = 30) or both modalities sequentially (n = 30) at two oncological centres in Sweden in 2005-2014 were retrospectively included. Median follow-up (mFU) was 63 months.

Results: A majority had clear cell histology, 1-3 metastases, and ECOG performance status of 0 or 1. Two thirds had intermediate or poor risk and 44% synchronous metastases. 65% received TA. SRT patients were more likely to have adverse risk profiles. Median OS was 51 months without significant differences between SRT and SM. ECOG 1 vs 0 (HR 2.9; CI 1.6-5.2; p < 0.001), intracranial targets (HR 1.8; CI 1.1-3.2; p = 0.03) and watchful waiting >18 months prior to treatment (HR 0.3; CI 0.2-0.6; p = 0.001) were independently associated with OS. 15% of curatively treated patients (n = 60) were relapse-free with mFU of 87 months.

Conclusions: OS after SRT was comparable to SM and longer than expected considering patients with adverse risk profiles were common. Fit patients with non-brain metastases treated after an initial period of watchful waiting had the best prognosis.

Abstract [en]

Systemic inflammation has been suggested to impact on the prognosis of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). We undertook a retrospective analysis of patients with mRCC treated at Akademiska University Hospital in Sweden during the years 2005-2012 to assess the possible prognostic significance of inflammation-related factors including serum albumin, platelet count, weight loss and C-reactive protein (CRP). The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) criteria for prognosis of mRCC and ECOG performance status were assessed for all patients. Overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) were calculated according to Kaplan-Meier, and Cox proportional hazards regression was used for uni- and multivariate analyses. The median OS of all patients (n=84) was 20 months. Univariate analysis identified low serum albumin (HR=4.17, p<0.001), elevated platelet count (HR=2.98, p<0.001) and patient-reported weight loss prior to diagnosis of mRCC (HR=2.73, p<0.001), in addition to MSKCC (HR=3.35, p=0.0088) to be associated with shorter OS. CRP did not significantly affect OS. Serum albumin retained prognostic significance for OS in multivariate analysis (HR=2.72, p=0.015). In patients treated with an angiogenesis-targeted agent (n=47), low serum albumin level (HR=4.63, p<0.001) and elevated platelet count (HR=2.11, p=0.022) were associated with shorter PFS. In contrast, CRP, weight loss and MSKCC risk group did not significantly affect PFS. In multivariate analysis serum albumin remained associated with PFS (HR=3.92, p=0.0035). Our findings identify serum albumin as an independent prognostic factor for patients with mRCC treated with angiogenesis-targeted therapy.

Abstract [en]

Background and Purpose: To evaluate the effects of single fraction gamma knife radiosurgery (sf-GKRS) on patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) brain metastases (BM) in the era of targeted agents (TA).

Material and Methods: Clear cell metastatic RCC patients treated with sf-GKRS due to BM in 2005-2014 at three European centres were retrospectively analysed (n=43). Median follow-up was 56 months. Ninety-five percent had prior nephrectomy, 53% synchronous metastasis and 86% extracranial disease at first sf-GKRS. Karnofsky performance status (KPS) ranged from 60-100%.  Outcome measures were overall survival (OS), local control (LC) and adverse radiation effects (ARE).

Results: One hundred and ninety-four targets were irradiated. Median number of targets at first sf-GKRS were two. The median prescription dose was 22 Gy. Thirty-seven percent had repeated sf-GKRS. Eighty-eight percent received TA. LC at 12 and 18 months were 97% and 90%. Median OS from first sf-GKRS was 15.7 months. Serum albumin (HR 5.3), corticosteroids pre sf-GKRS (HR 5.8) and KPS (HR 9.1) were independent prognostic factors. MSKCC risk group, synchronous metastasis, age, number of BM or extracranial metastases provided no additional prognostic information. Other prognostic scores for BM radiosurgery, including DS-GPA, Renal-GPA, LLV-SIR and CITV-SIR, did not add prognostic value. ARE were seldom symptomatic and were associated with tumour volume, 10-Gy volume and pre-treatment perifocal oedema. ARE were less common among patients treated with TA within one month of sf-GKRS.

Conclusions: We identified three independent prognostic factors with potential impact on clinical decision making in patients with clear cell RCC BM.
