    Recurrence, progression and cancer-specific mortality according to stage at re-TUR in T1G3 bladder cancer patients treated with BCG: not as bad as previously thought2018Ingår i: World journal of urology, ISSN 0724-4983, E-ISSN 1433-8726, Vol. 36, nr 10, s. 1621-1627Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The goals of transurethral resection of a bladder tumor (TUR) are to completely resect the lesions and to make a correct diagnosis to adequately stage and treat the patient. Persistent disease after TUR is not uncommon and is why re-TUR is recommended in T1G3 patients. When there is T1 tumor in the re-TUR specimen, very high risks of progression (82%) have been reported. We analyze the risks of recurrence, progression to muscle-invasive disease and cancer-specific mortality (CSM) according to tumor stage at re-TUR in T1G3 patients treated with BCG.

    Methods: In our retrospective cohort of 2451 T1G3 patients, 934 patients (38.1%) underwent re-TUR. 667 patients had residual disease (71.4%): Ta in 378 (40.5%), T1 in 289 (30.9%) patients. Times to recurrence, progression and CSM in the three groups were estimated using cumulative incidence functions and compared using the Cox regression model.

    Results:During a median follow-up of 5.2years, 512 patients recurred. The recurrence rate was significantly higher in patients with a T1 at re-TUR (P<0.001). Progression rates differed according to the pathology at re-TUR, 25.3% in T1, 14.6% in Ta and 14.2% in case of no residual tumor (P<0.001). Similar trends were seen in both patients with and without muscle in the original TUR specimen.

    Conclusions: Patients with T1G3 tumors and no residual disease or Ta at re-TUR have better recurrence, progression and CSM rates than previously reported, with a CSM rate of 13.1 and a 25.3% progression rate in re-TUR T1 disease.

    A nutrient-wide association study for risk of prostate cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition and the Netherlands Cohort Study2019Ingår i: European Journal of Nutrition, ISSN 1436-6207, E-ISSN 1436-6215Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The evidence from the literature regarding the association of dietary factors and risk of prostate cancer is inconclusive.

    Methods: A nutrient-wide association study was conducted to systematically and comprehensively evaluate the associations between 92 foods or nutrients and risk of prostate cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC). Cox proportional hazard regression models adjusted for total energy intake, smoking status, body mass index, physical activity, diabetes and education were used to estimate hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals for standardized dietary intakes. As in genome-wide association studies, correction for multiple comparisons was applied using the false discovery rate (FDR < 5%) method and suggested results were replicated in an independent cohort, the Netherlands Cohort Study (NLCS).

    Results: A total of 5916 and 3842 incident cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed during a mean follow-up of 14 and 20 years in EPIC and NLCS, respectively. None of the dietary factors was associated with the risk of total prostate cancer in EPIC (minimum FDR-corrected P, 0.37). Null associations were also observed by disease stage, grade and fatality, except for positive associations observed for intake of dry cakes/biscuits with low-grade and butter with aggressive prostate cancer, respectively, out of which the intake of dry cakes/biscuits was replicated in the NLCS.

    Conclusions: Our findings provide little support for an association for the majority of the 92 examined dietary factors and risk of prostate cancer. The association of dry cakes/biscuits with low-grade prostate cancer warrants further replication given the scarcity in the literature.

    Second-look resection for primary stage T1 bladder cancer: a population-based study2017Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1805, E-ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 51, nr 4, s. 301-307Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the use of second-look resection (SLR) in stage T1 bladder cancer (BC) in a population-based Swedish cohort. Materials and methods: All patients diagnosed with stage T1 BC in 2008-2009 were identified in the Swedish National Registry for Urinary Bladder Cancer. Registry data on TNM stage, grade, primary treatment and pathological reports from the SLR performed within 8weeks of the primary transurethral resection were validated against patient charts. The endpoint was cancer-specific survival (CSS). Results: In total, 903 patients with a mean age of 74years (range 28-99 years) were included. SLR was performed in 501 patients (55%), who had the following stages at SLR: 172 (35%) T0, 83 (17%) Ta/Tis, 210 (43%) T1 and 26 (5%) T2-4. The use of SLR varied from 18% to 77% in the six healthcare regions. Multiple adjuvant intravesical instillations were given to 420 patients (47%). SLR was associated with intravesical instillations, age younger than 74 years, discussion at multidisciplinary tumour conference, G3 tumour and treatment at high-volume hospitals. Patients undergoing SLR had a lower risk of dying from BC (hazard ratio 0.62, 95% confidence interval 0.45-0.84, p<.0022). Five-year CSS rates were as follows, in patients with the indicated tumours at SLR (p=.001): 82% in those with T1, 90% in T0, 90% in Ta/Tis and 56% in T2-4. Conclusions: There are large geographical differences in the use of SLR in stage T1 BC in Sweden, which are presumably related to local treatment traditions. Patients treated with SLR have a high rate of residual tumour but lower age, which suggests that a selection bias affects CSS.

    Use of bacillus Calmette-Guérin in stage T1 bladder cancer: Long-term observation of a population-based cohort2015Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1805, E-ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 49, nr 2, s. 127-132Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Objective. The aim of this study was to analyse the rate of use of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) at a population-based level, and the overall mortality and bladder cancer mortality due to stage T1 bladder cancer in a national, population-based register. Materials and methods. In total, 3758 patients with primary stage T1 bladder cancer, registered in the Swedish Bladder Cancer Register between 1997 and 2006, were included. Age, gender, tumour grade and primary treatment in the first 3-6 months were registered. High-volume hospitals registered 10 or more T1 tumours per year. Date and cause of death were obtained from the National Board of Health and Welfare Cause of Death Register. Results. BCG was given to 896 patients (24%). The use of BCG increased from 18% between 1997 and 2000, to 24% between 2001 and 2003, and to 31% between 2004 and 2006. BCG was given more often to patients with G3 tumours, patients younger than 75 years and patients attending high-volume hospitals. BCG treatment, grade 2 tumours and patient age younger than 75 years were associated with lower mortality due to bladder cancer. Hospital volume, gender and year of diagnosis were not related to bladder cancer mortality. However, selection factors might have affected the results since comorbidity, number of tumours and tumour size were unknown. Conclusions. Intravesical BCG is underused at a population-based level in stage T1 bladder cancer in Sweden, particularly in patients 75 years or older, and in those treated at low-volume hospitals. BCG should be offered more frequently to patients with stage T1 bladder cancer in Sweden.

    Circulating isoflavone and lignan concentrations and prostate cancer risk: a meta-analysis of individual participant data from seven prospective studies including 2,828 cases and 5,593 controls2018Ingår i: International Journal of Cancer, ISSN 0020-7136, E-ISSN 1097-0215, Vol. 143, nr 11, s. 2677-2686Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Phytoestrogens may influence prostate cancer development. This study aimed to examine the association between prediagnostic circulating concentrations of isoflavones (genistein, daidzein, equol) and lignans (enterolactone and enterodiol) and the risk of prostate cancer. Individual participant data were available from seven prospective studies (two studies from Japan with 241 cases and 503 controls and five studies from Europe with 2,828 cases and 5,593 controls). Because of the large difference in circulating isoflavone concentrations between Japan and Europe, analyses of the associations of isoflavone concentrations and prostate cancer risk were evaluated separately. Prostate cancer risk by study-specific fourths of circulating concentrations of each phytoestrogen was estimated using multivariable-adjusted conditional logistic regression. In men from Japan, those with high compared to low circulating equol concentrations had a lower risk of prostate cancer (multivariable-adjusted OR for upper quartile [Q4] vs. Q1 = 0.61, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.39-0.97), although there was no significant trend (OR per 75 percentile increase = 0.69, 95 CI = 0.46-1.05, p(trend) = 0.085); Genistein and daidzein concentrations were not significantly associated with risk (ORs for Q4 vs. Q1 = 0.70, 0.45-1.10 and 0.71, 0.45-1.12, respectively). In men from Europe, circulating concentrations of genistein, daidzein and equol were not associated with risk. Circulating lignan concentrations were not associated with the risk of prostate cancer, overall or by disease aggressiveness or time to diagnosis. There was no strong evidence that prediagnostic circulating concentrations of isoflavones or lignans are associated with prostate cancer risk, although further research is warranted in populations where isoflavone intakes are high.

    Tall height and obesity are associated with an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer: results from the EPIC cohort study2017Ingår i: BMC Medicine, ISSN 1741-7015, E-ISSN 1741-7015, Vol. 15, nr 1, artikel-id 115Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The relationship between body size and prostate cancer risk, and in particular risk by tumour characteristics, is not clear because most studies have not differentiated between high-grade or advanced stage tumours, but rather have assessed risk with a combined category of aggressive disease. We investigated the association of height and adiposity with incidence of and death from prostate cancer in 141,896 men in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort.

    METHODS: Multivariable-adjusted Cox proportional hazards models were used to calculate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). After an average of 13.9 years of follow-up, there were 7024 incident prostate cancers and 934 prostate cancer deaths.

    RESULTS: Height was not associated with total prostate cancer risk. Subgroup analyses showed heterogeneity in the association with height by tumour grade (P heterogeneity = 0.002), with a positive association with risk for high-grade but not low-intermediate-grade disease (HR for high-grade disease tallest versus shortest fifth of height, 1.54; 95% CI, 1.18-2.03). Greater height was also associated with a higher risk for prostate cancer death (HR = 1.43, 1.14-1.80). Body mass index (BMI) was significantly inversely associated with total prostate cancer, but there was evidence of heterogeneity by tumour grade (P heterogeneity = 0.01; HR = 0.89, 0.79-0.99 for low-intermediate grade and HR = 1.32, 1.01-1.72 for high-grade prostate cancer) and stage (P heterogeneity = 0.01; HR = 0.86, 0.75-0.99 for localised stage and HR = 1.11, 0.92-1.33 for advanced stage). BMI was positively associated with prostate cancer death (HR = 1.35, 1.09-1.68). The results for waist circumference were generally similar to those for BMI, but the associations were slightly stronger for high-grade (HR = 1.43, 1.07-1.92) and fatal prostate cancer (HR = 1.55, 1.23-1.96).

    CONCLUSIONS: The findings from this large prospective study show that men who are taller and who have greater adiposity have an elevated risk of high-grade prostate cancer and prostate cancer death.

    Fruit and vegetable intake and prostate cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)2017Ingår i: International Journal of Cancer, ISSN 0020-7136, E-ISSN 1097-0215, Vol. 141, nr 2, s. 287-297Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Several dietary factors have been studied in relation to prostate cancer; however, most studies have not reported on subtypes of fruit and vegetables or tumor characteristics, and results obtained so far are inconclusive. This study aimed to examine the prospective association of total and subtypes of fruit and vegetable intake with the incidence of prostate cancer overall, by grade and stage of disease, and prostate cancer death. Lifestyle information for 142,239 men participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition from 8 European countries was collected at baseline. Multivariable Cox regression models were used to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). After an average follow-up time of 13.9 years, 7,036 prostate cancer cases were identified. Compared with the lowest fifth, those in the highest fifth of total fruit intake had a significantly reduced prostate cancer risk (HR = 0.91; 95% CI = 0.83-0.99; p-trend = 0.01). No associations between fruit subtypes and prostate cancer risk were observed, except for citrus fruits, where a significant trend was found (HR = 0.94; 95% CI = 0.86-1.02; p-trend = 0.01). No associations between total and subtypes of vegetables and prostate cancer risk were observed. We found no evidence of heterogeneity in these associations by tumor grade and stage, with the exception of significant heterogeneity by tumor grade (pheterogeneity<0.001) for leafy vegetables. No significant associations with prostate cancer death were observed. The main finding of this prospective study was that a higher fruit intake was associated with a small reduction in prostate cancer risk. Whether this association is causal remains unclear. What's new? The role of diet in prostate-cancer etiology is uncertain, and associations may vary by tumor characteristics. In this prospective, longitudinal study, the authors examined the association of total and subtypes of fruit and vegetable intake with the overall incidence of prostate cancer. They then analyzed incidence by grade, stage of disease, and prostate-cancer death. They found that higher fruit intake was associated with a small reduction in prostate cancer risk, and that this association did not differ by tumor characteristics.

    [Lu-177]pertuzumab: Experimental therapy of HER-2-expressing xenografts2007Ingår i: Cancer Research, ISSN 0008-5472, E-ISSN 1538-7445, Vol. 67, nr 1, s. 326-331Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Pertuzumab (Omnitarg) is a novel antibody against HER-2, domain II. HER-2 is a tyrosine kinase receptor that is overexpressed in several carcinomas, especially breast cancer. Pertuzumab, labeled with the low-energy beta emitter Lu-177, might be a candidate for targeted radiotherapy of disseminated HER-2-positive micrometastases. The radiolabeled antibody [Lu-177]pertuzumab showed favorable targeting properties in BALB/c (nu/nu) mice with HER-2-overexpressing xenografts. The absorbed dose in tumors was more than five times higher than the absorbed dose in blood and more than seven times the absorbed dose in any other normal organ. Experimental therapy showed that [Lu-177]pertuzumab delayed tumor progression compared with controls (no treatment, P < 0.0001; nonlabeled pertuzumab antibody, P < 0.0001; and Lu-177-labeled irrelevant antibody, P < 0.01). No adverse side effects of the treatment could be detected. Thus, the experimental results support the planning of clinical studies applying [Lu-177]pertuzumab for therapy.

    In vitro evaluation of two polyhedral boron anion derivatives as linkers for attachment of radioiodine to the anti-HER2 monoclonal antibody trastuzumab2007Ingår i: Cancer Biotherapy and Radiopharmaceuticals, ISSN 1084-9785, E-ISSN 1557-8852, Vol. 22, nr 5, s. 585-596Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Improving intracellular retention is important for the use of radiohalogens in radionuclide therapy usinginternalizing antibodies. Two putative linkers for residualization of radioiodine labels, 7-(4-isothiocyanato-phenyl)undecahydro-7,8-dicarba-nido-undecaborate(1Ϫ) ion (NBI) and (4-isothiocyanato-benzylammo-nio)undecahydro-closo-dodecaborate(1Ϫ) (DABI), were analyzed. The anti-HER-2 antibody, trastuzumab,was labeled with iodine-125 using NBI and DABI linkers, and, for comparison, with the para-[125I]iodoben-zoate (PIB), and Chloramine-T (CAT) methods. The different labels were tested for residualizing prop-erties using the HER-2 overexpressing SKBR-3 cells. The cellular radioactivity retention showed thatDABI provided a 55% better retention than CAT and was 42% better than PIB after 20 hours. NBI didnot improve retention. Accumulation tests up to 21 hours showed that the HER-2-specific accumulationof radioactivity delivered with DABI was, on average, 33% higher than with the use of PIB. These DABI-dependent improvements could, with high probability, be attributed to the good residualizing propertiesof DABI. The affinity of DABI-labeled trastuzumab to SKBR-3 cells was not better than the affinity of thePIB labeled (3.2 Ϯ 1.9 nM and 0.77 Ϯ 0.39 nM, respectively). In conclusion, the use of the DABI linkerimproved intracellular retention in vitro in comparison with the other labeling methods.

    Age at diagnosis and prostate cancer treatment and prognosis: a population-based cohort study2018Ingår i: Annals of Oncology, ISSN 0923-7534, E-ISSN 1569-8041, Vol. 29, nr 2, s. 377-385Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Old age at prostate cancer diagnosis has been associated with poor prognosis in several studies. We aimed to investigate the association between age at diagnosis and prognosis, and if it is independent of tumor characteristics, primary treatment, year of diagnosis, mode of detection and comorbidity.

    Patients and methods: We conducted a nation-wide cohort study including 121,392 Swedish men aged 55-95 years in Prostate Cancer data Base Sweden (PCBaSe) 3.0 diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1998-2012 and followed for prostate cancer death through 2014. Data were available on age, stage, grade, PSA-level, mode of detection, comorbidity, educational level and primary treatment. We used Cox regression to calculate hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs).

    Results: With increasing age at diagnosis, men had more comorbidity, fewer PSA detected cancers, more advanced cancers and were less often treated with curative intent. Among men with high-risk or regionally metastatic disease, the proportion of men with unknown M stage was higher among old men versus young men. During a follow-up of 751,000 person-years, 23,649 men died of prostate cancer. In multivariable Cox-regression analyses stratified by treatment, old age at diagnosis was associated with poorer prognosis among men treated with deferred treatment (HRage 85+ vs. 60-64: 7.19; 95% CI: 5.61-9.20), androgen deprivation therapy (HRage 85+ vs. 60-64: 1.72; 95% CI: 1.61-1.84) or radical prostatectomy (HRage 75+ vs. 60-64: 2.20; 95% CI: 1.01-4.77), but not radiotherapy (HRage 75+ vs. 60-64: 1.08; 95% CI: 0.76-1.53).

    Conclusion: Our findings argue against a strong inherent effect of age on risk of prostate cancer death, but indicate that in current clinical practice, old men with prostate cancer receive insufficient diagnostic work-up and subsequent curative treatment.

    Phase II Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Tasquinimod in Men With Minimally Symptomatic Metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer2011Ingår i: Journal of Clinical Oncology, ISSN 0732-183X, E-ISSN 1527-7755, Vol. 29, nr 30, s. 4022-4028Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The activity of the novel antitumor agent tasquinimod (TASQ) with S100A9 as a molecular target was investigated in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and minimal symptoms.

    Patients and Methods: We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase II trial in men assigned (at a ratio of two to one) to either oral once-daily TASQ 0.25 mg/d escalating to 1.0 mg/d over 4 weeks or placebo. The primary end point was the proportion of patients without disease progression at 6 months, defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Group, Prostate Cancer Working Group (PCWG2), or pain criteria, excluding prostate-specific antigen.

    Results: Two hundred one men (134 assigned to TASQ; 67 to placebo) were evaluable, and baseline characteristics were well balanced. Six-month progression-free proportions for TASQ and placebo groups were 69% and 37%, respectively (P < .001), and median progression-free survival (PFS) was 7.6 versus 3.3 months (P = .0042). In PCWG2 CRPC clinical subgroups, PFS in months was as follows: nodal metastases, 6.1 versus 3.1; bone metastases, 8.8 versus 3.4; and visceral metastases, 6.0 versus 3.0 for patients receiving TASQ versus placebo, respectively. Bone alkaline phosphatase levels were stabilized in the TASQ group, whereas the impact on PSA kinetics was less pronounced. Adverse events (AEs) occurring more frequently in the TASQ arm included GI disorders, fatigue, musculoskeletal pains, and elevations of pancreatic and inflammatory biomarkers. Grade 3 to 4 AEs, including asymptomatic elevations of laboratory parameters, were reported in 40% of patients receiving TASQ versus 10% receiving placebo; deep vein thrombosis (4% v 0%) was more common in the TASQ arm.

    Conclusion: TASQ significantly slowed progression and improved PFS in patients with metastatic CRPC with an acceptable AE profile.

    Work Disability After Robot-assisted or Open Radical Prostatectomy: A Nationwide, Population-based Study2016Ingår i: European Urology, ISSN 0302-2838, E-ISSN 1873-7560, Vol. 70, nr 1, s. 64-71Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has been associated with reduced bleeding and shorter hospital stays than open retropubic radical prostatectomy (RRP), but it is unclear whether these differences translate into shorter absence from work. Objective: To investigate short-and long-term rates of work disability following RARP and RRP. Design, setting, and participants: We conducted a nationwide population-based cohort study of 2571 men of working age treated with RARP or RRP between 2007 and 2009 identified in the National Prostate Cancer Register of Sweden. Information about physician-certified sick leave and disability pension was retrieved from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency through 2012. Outcome measurements and statistical analysis: We used Cox regression to calculate time to return to work (RTW, or duration of sick leave) after surgery and used generalised estimating equations to analyse days lost from work (because of sick leave and disability pension) after RTW. Results and limitations: Men treated with RARP returned to work after a median of 35 d, whereas the corresponding time for RRP was 48 d (p < 0.001). The difference was seen early; within the first month, men treated with RARP returned to work nearly four times faster than men treated with RRP (adjusted relative RTW rate 3.76; 95% confidence interval [CI], 3.04-4.66). During a median of 3.6 yr after return to work, men treated with RARP lost fewer days from work per person-year than men treated with RRP-12 d versus 15 d-but the association was not statistically significant (p = 0.10). The adjusted rate ratio was 1.08 (95% CI, 0.82-1.42). One limitation is the nonrandomised design of this study. Conclusions: RARP was associated with a faster RTW compared with RRP, but the surgical method did not influence long-term rates of work disability in terms of days lost from work after RTW. Patient summary: We compared disease-related absence from work between two surgical methods for the removal of the prostate. Robot-assisted surgery was associated with a faster return to work compared with open surgery but did not influence absence from work in a long-term perspective.

    Drug Prescription for Erectile Dysfunction Before and After Diagnosis of Localized Prostate Cancer2014Ingår i: Journal of Sexual Medicine, ISSN 1743-6095, E-ISSN 1743-6109, Vol. 11, nr 8, s. 2100-2108Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. Despite the high prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men with prostate cancer, little is known about the use of ED drugs. Also, the possible influence of socioeconomic factors on ED drug use has not been studied previously. Aim. The aim of this study was to examine determinants and patterns of ED drug use before and after diagnosis in men with localized prostate cancer. Methods. Using a nationwide population-based cohort, 25,390 men with localized prostate cancer diagnosed between 2006 and 2009 and 126,944 control men were identified and followed for filled ED drug prescriptions over a 3-year period, ranging from 1 year before and up to 2 years after diagnosis. Main Outcome Measures. The main outcome measure was the proportion of men with at least one filled ED drug prescription after diagnosis. Results. The number of men using ED drugs increased markedly following diagnosis. Men who underwent radical prostatectomy had the strongest increase, with a cumulative proportion of 74% for at least one filled prescription within the first 2 years after diagnosis. The corresponding proportion was 33% in men treated with radiotherapy, 21% in men on active surveillance, 10% in men on watchful waiting, and 8% in control men. Among men who underwent prostatectomy, usage attenuated over time. Determinants of postdiagnostic use were young age at diagnosis, high income, high education, and a low- or intermediate-risk cancer. Conclusion. Although drugs for ED are commonly prescribed after diagnosis, use among most men is transient and influenced by socioeconomic status. Posttreatment counseling and affordable ED drugs are likely to reduce treatment dropout and disparities in use and help improve sexual health and quality of life in men with prostate cancer.

    Circulating Folate and Vitamin B12 and Risk of Prostate Cancer: A Collaborative Analysis of Individual Participant Data from Six Cohorts Including 6875 Cases and 8104 Controls.2016Ingår i: European Urology, ISSN 0302-2838, E-ISSN 1873-7560, Vol. 70, nr 6, s. 941-951, artikel-id S0302-2838(16)00379-1Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Folate and vitamin B12 are essential for maintaining DNA integrity and may influence prostate cancer (PCa) risk, but the association with clinically relevant, advanced stage, and high-grade disease is unclear.

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the associations between circulating folate and vitamin B12 concentrations and risk of PCa overall and by disease stage and grade.

    DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A study was performed with a nested case-control design based on individual participant data from six cohort studies including 6875 cases and 8104 controls; blood collection from 1981 to 2008, and an average follow-up of 8.9 yr (standard deviation 7.3). Odds ratios (ORs) of incident PCa by study-specific fifths of circulating folate and vitamin B12 were calculated using multivariable adjusted conditional logistic regression.

    OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS: Incident PCa and subtype by stage and grade.

    RESULTS AND LIMITATIONS: Higher folate and vitamin B12 concentrations were associated with a small increase in risk of PCa (ORs for the top vs bottom fifths were 1.13 [95% confidence interval (CI), 1.02-1.26], ptrend=0.018, for folate and 1.12 [95% CI, 1.01-1.25], ptrend=0.017, for vitamin B12), with no evidence of heterogeneity between studies. The association with folate varied by tumour grade (pheterogeneity<0.001); higher folate concentration was associated with an elevated risk of high-grade disease (OR for the top vs bottom fifth: 2.30 [95% CI, 1.28-4.12]; ptrend=0.001), with no association for low-grade disease. There was no evidence of heterogeneity in the association of folate with risk by stage or of vitamin B12 with risk by stage or grade of disease (pheterogeneity>0.05). Use of single blood-sample measurements of folate and B12 concentrations is a limitation.

    CONCLUSIONS: The association between higher folate concentration and risk of high-grade disease, not evident for low-grade disease, suggests a possible role for folate in the progression of clinically relevant PCa and warrants further investigation.

    PATIENT SUMMARY: Folate, a vitamin obtained from foods and supplements, is important for maintaining cell health. In this study, however, men with higher blood folate levels were at greater risk of high-grade (more aggressive) prostate cancer compared with men with lower folate levels. Further research is needed to investigate the possible role of folate in the progression of this disease.

    An unusual case of tumor thrombus in the inferior vena cava: A case report2003Ingår i: Acta Radiologica, ISSN 0284-1851, E-ISSN 1600-0455, Vol. 44, nr 2, s. 160-161Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy. Patients present either with a functional tumor or secondary to mass effect. In non-functioning tumors, the tumor size often exceeds 5 cm by the time of diagnosis, and tumor thrombus can occur. We report on a case of a small non-functioning ACC causing a large tumor thrombus in the inferior vena cava.

    Malignant lipogenesis defined by C-11-acetate PET/CT predicts prostate cancer-specific survival in patients with biochemical relapse after prostatectomy2016Ingår i: European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, ISSN 1619-7070, E-ISSN 1619-7089, Vol. 43, nr 12, s. 2131-2138Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Malignant de novo lipogenesis is strongly linked to the aggressiveness of prostate cancer (PCa) under experimental conditions. C-11-Acetate PET/CT is a potential noninvasive biomarker of malignant lipogenesis in PCa, but its prognostic value is not known. The objective of this study was to analyse C-11-acetate PET/CT image metrics in relation to survival. All patients undergoing C-11-acetate PET/CT in one university hospital from 2005 to 2011 due to PSA relapse after previous prostatectomy were retrospectively evaluated. Two groups of patients were compared: those who died from PCa and those who were censored. All previously reported findings of local recurrence, regional or distal lymph node metastases and bone metastases were counted and evaluated regarding C-11-acetate uptake intensity (SUVmax) and tumour volume. Total tumour volume and total lipogenic activity (TLA, summed SUVmax x TV) were calculated. Survival analysis in the entire study population was followed by Cox proportional hazards ratio (HR) analysis. A total of 121 patients were included, and 22 PCa-specific deaths were recorded. The mean PSA level at the time of PET was 2.69 +/- 4.35 ng/mL. The median follow-up of the study population was 79 +/- 28 months. PET identified at least one PCa lesion in 53 % of patients. Five-year PCa-specific survival after PET was 80 % and 100 % in patients with a positive and a negative PET scan, respectively (p < 0.001). Time-to-death was linearly correlated with highest SUVmax (r = -0.55, p = 0.01) and nonlinearly with TLA (r = -0.75, p < 0.001). Multivariate analysis showed statistical significance for number of bone metastases (HR 1.74, p = 0.01), tertile of TLA (HR 5.63, p = 0.029) and postoperative Gleason score (HR 1.84, p = 0.045). Malignant C-11-acetate accumulation measured with PET/CT is a strong predictor of survival in the setting of PSA relapse after prostatectomy. The study provides further evidence for a quantitative relationship between malignant de novo lipogenesis and early death. C-11-Acetate PET/CT might be useful for identifying a high-risk population of relapsing patients in which therapies targeting malignant lipogenesis might be of particular benefit.

    Dynamic Imaging of Prostate Cancer with 11C-acetate PET/CT2017Ingår i: Journal of Nuclear Medicine, ISSN 0161-5505, E-ISSN 1535-5667, Vol. 58, nr S1, artikel-id 662Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: Dynamic 11C-acetate PET/CT can be used to study tissue perfusion and carbon flux simultaneously, but studies in cancer are limited. We investigated the kinetics of 11C-acetate in prostate cancer subjects using parametric images with an image-derived input function (IDIF).

    Methods: Twenty-one patients with newly diagnosed low-moderate risk prostate cancer were studied. All underwent pelvic MRI. Dynamic 11C-acetate (5 MBq/kg) PET/CT of the pelvis was acquired for 32 minutes with 32 time frames. An IDIF was acquired from iliac vessels with multiple small regions of interest (ROIs) and a standardized metabolite correction. Parametric images of K1 (extraction), k2 (oxidative metabolism) and Vd (=K1/k2, anabolic metabolism defined as carbon retention) were constructed using a one-tissue compartment model. ROIs of the largest cancer region in each patient and normal prostate tissue were drawn using information from MRI (T2 and DWI images) and from post-surgical histopathology of whole prostate sections (n=7).

    Results: Mean PSA was 8.3±3.9. Median Gleason Sum was 6 (range 5-7). K1, Vd and SUVs were higher in cancerous regions compared to normal prostate for all patients (p<0.001). PSA correlated to early SUV (r=0.50, p=0.02) and K1 (r=0.48, p=0.03). Early and late SUVs were correlated to Vd (r>0.76, p<0.001) and K1 (r>0.61, p<0.005).

    Conclusion: Parametric images could be used to visualize the 11C-acetate kinetics of the prostate. In this cohort of relatively low-risk cancers, PSA values were related to cancer perfusion. SUV of cancerous regions at any time point is primarily associated with anabolic metabolism. Research Support: Swedish Cancer Foundation (Cancerfonden)

    Waiting times for cancer patients in Sweden: A nationwide population-based study2017Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1403-4948, E-ISSN 1651-1905, Vol. 45, nr 3, s. 230-237Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: The reported long waiting times for cancer patients have mostly been related to prognostic outcome and less to patient-related experience to outcome. We assessed waiting times for patients with cancer of the breast, prostate, colon or rectum in Sweden.

    Methods: The median time from referral to start of treatment was assessed using data from clinical cancer registers for patients who received curative treatment during 2011, 2012 and 2013.

    Results: The median overall waiting time in different counties ranged from 7 to 28 days for breast cancer, from 117 to 280 days for prostate cancer, from 27 to 64 days for colon cancer and from 48 to 80 days for rectal cancer. For the entire nation, the median time from referral to start of treatment remained unchanged from 2011 to 2013 for each cancer diagnosis.

    Conclusions: Large variations were found in waiting times between different counties in Sweden and between different types of cancer. The long waiting times identified in this study emphasize the need to improve national programmes for more rapid diagnosis and treatment.

    Use of 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors for lower urinary tract symptoms and risk of prostate cancer in Swedish men: nationwide, population based case-control study2013Ingår i: BMJ. British Medical Journal, E-ISSN 1756-1833, Vol. 346, s. f3406-Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective To assess the association between 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor (5-ARI) use in men with lower urinary tract symptoms and prostate cancer risk. Design Nationwide, population based case-control study for men diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007-09 within the Prostate Cancer data Base Sweden 2.0. Setting The National Prostate Cancer Register, National Patient Register, census, and Prescribed Drug Register in Sweden, from which we obtained data on 5-ARI use before date of prostate cancer diagnosis. Participants 26 735 cases and 133 671 matched controls; five controls per case were randomly selected from matched men in the background population. 7815 men (1499 cases and 6316 controls) had been exposed to 5-ARI. 412 men had been exposed to 5-ARI before the diagnosis of a cancer with Gleason score 8-10. Main outcome measures Risk of prostate cancer calculated as odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals by conditional logistic regression analyses. Results Risk of prostate cancer overall decreased with an increasing duration of exposure; men on 5-ARI treatment for more than three years had an odds ratio of 0.72 (95% confidence interval 0.59 to 0.89; P<0.001 for trend). The same pattern was seen for cancers with Gleason scores 2-6 and score 7 (both P<0.001 for trend). By contrast, the risk of tumours with Gleason scores 8-10 did not decrease with increasing exposure time to 5-ARI (for 0-1 year of exposure, odds ratio 0.96 (95% confidence interval 0.83 to 1.11); for 1-2 years, 1.07 (0.88 to 1.31); for 2-3 years, 0.96 (0.72 to 1.27); for >3 years, 1.23 (0.90 to 1.68); P=0.46 for trend). Conclusions Men treated with 5-ARI for lower urinary tract symptoms had a decreased risk of cancer with Gleason scores 2-7, and showed no evidence of an increased risk of cancer with Gleason scores 8-10 after up to four years' treatment.

    5-alpha reductase inhibitors, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and risk of male breast cancer2015Ingår i: Cancer Causes and Control, ISSN 0957-5243, E-ISSN 1573-7225, Vol. 26, nr 9, s. 1289-1297Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    5-alpha reductase inhibitors (5-ARI) have been suggested to increase the risk of male breast cancer. The aim of this study was to study the risk of breast cancer in men on 5-ARI, in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) not on 5-ARI, and in men without BPH. We performed a population-based cohort study in Sweden with data from The Prescribed Drug Register, The Patient Register, and The Cancer Register. Men on 5-ARI, men on alpha-blockers, or men who had undergone a transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) prior to or during 2006-2008 were included as exposed to BPH and a specific treatment thereof. For each exposed man, five unexposed men were selected. Risk of breast cancer was calculated in Cox proportional hazard models. There were 124,183 exposed men and 545,293 unexposed men, and during follow-up (median 6 years), 99 men with breast cancer were diagnosed. Compared to unexposed men, men on 5-ARI had a hazard ratio (HR) of breast cancer of 0.74 (95 % confidence interval (CI) 0.27-2.03), men on alpha-blockers had HR 1.47 (95 % CI 0.73-2.95), and men with a TUR-P had HR 1.99 (95 % CI 1.05-3.75). No increased risk of breast cancer was observed for men on 5-ARI. However, the increased risk of breast cancer among men who had undergone a TUR-P, a strong indicator of BPH, suggests that the endocrine milieu conducive to BPH is associated with male breast cancer.

    Prostate Cancer Death After Radiotherapy or Radical Prostatectomy: A Nationwide Population-based Observational Study2018Ingår i: European Urology, ISSN 0302-2838, E-ISSN 1873-7560, Vol. 73, nr 4, s. 502-511Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There are no conclusive results from randomized trials on radiotherapy (RT) versus radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer. Numerous observational studies have suggested that RP is associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer death, but whether results have been biased due to limited adjustments for confounding factors is unknown.

    Objective: To compare the risk of prostate cancer death after RT versus RP.

    Design, setting, and participants: Nationwide population-based observational study of men in the Prostate Cancer data Base Sweden 3.0 who had undergone RT or RP between 1998 and 2012.

    Outcome measurements and statistical analysis: Prostate cancer deaths were compared. Hazard ratios (HRs) were calculated in Cox regression models, including clinical T stage, M stage, Gleason grade group, serum levels of prostate-specific antigen, proportion of biopsy cores with cancer, mode of detection, comorbidity, age, educational level, and civil status. Period analysis with left truncation was performed.

    Results and limitations: Primary treatment was RT or RP for 41 503 men. Treatment effect was associated with disease severity. In univariate analysis of RT versus RP, risk of prostate cancer death was higher after RT-low-and intermediate-risk cancer, HR 1.82 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.53-2.16), and high-risk cancer, HR 1.57 (95% CI: 1.33-1.85). After full adjustment in period analysis, this difference between the treatments was attenuated-low-and intermediate-risk cancer, HR 1.24 (95% CI: 0.97-1.58), and high-risk cancer, HR 1.03 (95% CI: 0.81-1.31). Confounding remained due to nonrandom allocation to treatment.

    Conclusions: In comparison with previous studies, the difference in prostate cancer mortality after RT and RP was much smaller.

    Patient summary: The difference in prostate cancer mortality after contemporary radiotherapy and radical prostatectomy was small in contrast to previous studies, indicating that potential side effects should be more emphasized when selecting treatment.

    Risk of Fractures and Falls during and after 5-α Reductase Inhibitor Use: A Nationwide Cohort Study2015Ingår i: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 10, nr 10, artikel-id e0140598Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Lower urinary tract symptoms are common among older men and 5-α reductase inhibitors (5-ARI) are a group of drugs recommended in treating these symptoms. The effect on prostate volume is mediated by a reduction in dihydrotestosterone; however, this reduction is counterbalanced by a 25% rise in serum testosterone levels. Therefore, 5-ARI use might have systemic effects and differentially affect bone mineral density, muscular mass and strength, as well as falls, all of which are major determinants of fractures in older men.

    METHODS: We conducted a nationwide cohort study of all Swedish men who used 5-ARI by comparing their risk of hip fracture, any type of fracture and of falls with matched control men randomly selected from the population and unexposed to 5-ARI.

    RESULTS: During 1 417 673 person-years of follow-up, 10 418 men had a hip fracture, 19 570 any type of fracture and 46 755 a fall requiring hospital care. Compared with unexposed men, current users of 5-ARI had an adjusted hazard ratio (HR) of 0.96 (95% CI 0.91-1.02) for hip fracture, an HR of 0.94 (95% CI 0.90-0.98) for all fracture and an HR of 0.99 (95% CI 0.96-1.02) for falls. Former users had an increased risk of hip fractures (HR 1.10, 95% CI 1.01-1.19).

    CONCLUSION: 5-ARI is safe from a bone health perspective with an unaltered risk of fractures and falls during periods of use. After discontinuation of 5-ARI, there is a modest increase in the rate of fractures and falls.

    Androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer and risk of dementia2019Ingår i: BJU International, ISSN 1464-4096, E-ISSN 1464-410X, Vol. 124, nr 1, s. 87-92Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives

    To study whether androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), the mainstay treatment for advanced and disseminated prostate cancer, is associated with risk of dementia.

    Methods

    Risk of dementia in men with prostate cancer primarily managed with ADT or watchful waiting (WW) in the Prostate Cancer Database Sweden, PCBaSe, was compared with that in prostate cancer-free men, matched on birth year and county of residency. We used Cox regression to calculate the hazard ratios (HRs) for Alzheimer's and non-Alzheimer's dementia (vascular dementia, dementia secondary to other diseases or unspecified dementias) for different types and duration of ADT and oral antiandrogens (AAs) as well as for men managed with WW.

    Results

    A total of 25 967 men with prostate cancer and 121 018 prostate cancer-free men were followed for a median of 4 years. In both groups 6% of the men were diagnosed with dementia. In men with prostate cancer, gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist treatment ( HR 1.15, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.07-1.23) and orchiectomy (HR 1.60, 95% CI 1.32-1.93) were associated with an increased risk of dementia, as compared to no treatment in prostate cancer-free men; however, this increase in risk was only observed for non-Alzheimer's dementia and occurred from year 1-4 after start of ADT. No increase in risk for any type of dementia was observed for men treated with AAs or for men on WW.

    Conclusion

    This population-based cohort study does not support previous observations of an increased risk of Alzheimer's dementia for men on ADT; however, there was a small increase in risk of non-Alzheimer's dementia.

    Budget impact of incorporating one instillation of hexaminolevulinate hydrochloride blue-light cytoscopy in transurethral bladder tumour resection for patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer in Sweden.2016Ingår i: BJU International, ISSN 1464-4096, E-ISSN 1464-410X, Vol. 117, nr 6B, s. E102-E113Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: To explore the cost impact on Swedish healthcare of incorporating one instillation of hexaminolevulinate hydrochloride (HAL) blue-light cystoscopy into transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) in patients with suspected new or recurrent non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC).

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: A decision tree model was built based on European Association of Urology guidelines for the treatment and management of NMIBC. Input data were compiled from two recent studies comparing recurrence rates of bladder cancer in patients undergoing TURBT with either the current standard of care (SOC) of white-light cystoscopy, or with the SOC and HAL blue-light cystoscopy. Using these published data with clinical cost data for surgical and outpatient procedures and pharmaceutical costs, the model reported on the clinical and economic differences associated with the two treatment options.

    RESULTS: This model demonstrates the significant clinical benefits likely to be observed through the incorporation of HAL blue-light cystoscopy for TURBT in terms of reductions in recurrences of bladder cancer. Analysis of economic outputs of the model found that the use of one instillation of HAL for TURBT in all Swedish patients with NMIBC is likely to be cost-neutral or cost-saving over 5 years relative to the current SOC of white-light cystoscopy.

    CONCLUSIONS: The results of this analysis provide additional health economic rationale for the incorporation of a single instillation of HAL blue-light cystoscopy for TURBT in the treatment of patients with NMIBC in Sweden.

    Sentinel node detection in muscle-invasive urothelial bladder cancer is feasible after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in all pT stages: a prospective multicenter report2017Ingår i: World journal of urology, ISSN 0724-4983, E-ISSN 1433-8726, Vol. 35, nr 6, s. 921-927Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To determine whether sentinel node detection (SNd) in muscle-invasive urothelial bladder cancer (MIBC) can be performed in patients undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and determine whether SNd is feasible in all pT stages, including pT0. Previous published series of SNd in MIBC have not included patients undergoing NAC, and systematic reports of pT0 patients w/wo NAC were absent. Translational immunological tumor research on MIBC focusing on SNd, in the era of NAC, requires technical feasibility. Additionally, SNd in MIBC requests further evaluations as a method for nodal staging. Ninety-nine patients with suspected urothelial MIBC were prospectively selected from six urological centers. After TUR-B and primary staging, 65 MIBC patients qualified for radical cystectomy. Precystectomy staging was cT2a-T4aN0M0, including 47 NAC patients and 18 chemo-na < ve patients. All 65 patients underwent intraoperative SNd by peritumoral injection of 80 Mbq Technetium and Geiger probe detection. Postcystectomy staging was pT0-T4aN0-N2M0. SNs were defined by two calculations, SNdef1 and SNdef2. Totally 1063 lymph nodes were removed (total SNs; 222-227). NAC patients with pT0 (n = 24) displayed a true positive detection in 91.7 % by either SNdef, with a median of 3.0 SNs. NACpT > 0 patients had a true positive detection in 87 % (SNdef1) and 91.3 % (SNdef2). In a univariate analysis, patient group neither NAC nor tumor downstaging influenced detection rates, regardless of SN definition. In total eight patients, 4/22 metastatic nodes were SNs while 18/22 were non-SNs. Sentinel node detection in MIBC is feasible also in NAC patients, regardless of pT stage. SNd played no role in nodal staging.

    Pathologic Downstaging Is a Surrogate Marker for Efficacy and Increased Survival Following Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy and Radical Cystectomy for Muscle-Invasive Urothelial Bladder Cancer2012Ingår i: European Urology, ISSN 0302-2838, E-ISSN 1873-7560, Vol. 61, nr 6, s. 1229-1238Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Characterising responders to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is important to minimise overtreatment and the unnecessary delay of definitive treatment of urothelial urinary bladder cancer.

    OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of NAC on tumour downstaging and overall survival.

    DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A total of 449 patients from the randomised prospective Nordic Cystectomy Trials 1 and 2 were analysed retrospectively. Eligible patients were defined as T2-T4aNXM0 preoperatively and pT0-pT4aN0-N+M0 postoperatively. The median follow-up time was 5 yr.

    INTERVENTION: The experimental arm consisted of cisplatin-based NAC; the control arm consisted of cystectomy only.

    MEASUREMENTS: The primary outcome was tumour downstaging defined as pathologic TNM less than clinical TNM. Different downstaging thresholds were applied: complete downstaging (CD) (pT0N0), noninvasive downstaging (NID) (pT0/pTis/pTaN0), and organ confinement (OC) (≤pT3aN0). Downstaging rates and nodal status were compared between the study arms using the chi-square test. Secondary outcome was overall survival (OS) stratified by treatment arm, downstaging categories, and clinical stages, analysed by the Kaplan-Meier method. The following covariates were tested as prognostic factors in univariate and multivariate analyses using the Cox regression method: age, sex, clinical stage, pN status, NAC, CD, NID, and OC.

    RESULTS AND LIMITATIONS: Downstaging rates increased significantly in the NAC arm independent of the downstaging threshold. The impact was more prominent in clinical T3 tumours, with a near threefold increase in CD tumours. The combination of CD and NAC showed an absolute risk reduction of 31.1% in OS at 5 yr compared with CD controls. The combination of NAC and CD revealed a hazard ratio of 0.32 compared with 1.0 for the combination of no NAC and no CD. Limitations were the retrospective approach and uncertain clinical TNM staging.

    CONCLUSIONS: Survival benefits of NAC are reflected in downstaging of the primary tumour. Chemo-induced downstaging might be a potential surrogate marker for OS.

    Recurrent Ta Low-grade Non-muscle-invasive Bladder Cancer: What Are the Options?2019Ingår i: EUROPEAN UROLOGY ONCOLOGY, ISSN 2588-9311, Vol. 2, nr 6, s. 723-729Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Recurrent low-grade Ta tumours, classified as intermediate-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC), have a high risk of recurrence but a low risk of progression. This case presents a 60-yr-old female with intermediate-risk NMIBC who has been treated with sequential courses of mitomycin C followed by bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG). She continued to develop multiple episodes of recurrence. The discussion addresses whether the best course is repeat transurethral resection of the bladder with continued monitoring, more of the same intravesical treatments, new methods of applying these treatments, or novel treatments that might involve enrolling the patient in a clinical trial. The biggest unmet need in the field comes from the lack of a molecular marker that could help select patients for aggressive strategies. Patient summary: Following treatment of intermediate-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer with a fairly standard course of intravesical drug therapy, the patient, a relatively young woman, continued to develop recurrences of the bladder cancer. The authors discuss whether the best next course is "more of the same", device-assisted application of these treatments, or perhaps one of the new, still investigatory treatment approaches. Radical surgery (removal of the bladder) should not be necessary unless the recurrences show signs of disease progression. .

    A case-control study of lower urinary-tract infections, associated antibiotics and the risk of developing prostate cancer using PCBaSe 3.02018Ingår i: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 13, nr 4, artikel-id e0195690Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: To investigate the association between lower urinary-tract infections, their associated antibiotics and the subsequent risk of developing PCa.

    Subjects/Patients (or materials) and methods: Using data from the Swedish PCBaSe 3.0, we performed a matched case-control study (8762 cases and 43806 controls). Conditional logistic regression analysis was used to assess the association between lower urinary-tract infections, related antibiotics and PCa, whilst adjusting for civil status, education, Charlson Comorbidity Index and time between lower urinary-tract infection and PCa diagnosis.

    Results: It was found that lower urinary-tract infections did not affect PCa risk, however, having a lower urinary-tract infection or a first antibiotic prescription 6-12 months before PCa were both associated with an increased risk of PCa (OR: 1.50, 95% CI: 1.23-1.82 and 1.96, 1.71-2.25, respectively), as compared to men without lower urinary-tract infections. Compared to men with no prescriptions for antibiotics, men who were prescribed >10 antibiotics, were 15% less likely to develop PCa (OR: 0.85, 95% CI: 0.78-0.91).

    Conclusion: PCa was not found to be associated with diagnosis of a urinary-tract infection or frequency, but was positively associated with short time since diagnoses of lower urinary-tract infection or receiving prescriptions for antibiotics. These observations can likely be explained by detection bias, which highlights the importance of data on the diagnostic work-up when studying potential risk factors for PCa.

    Neoadjuvant chemotherapy for muscle invasive bladder cancer: a nationwide investigation on survival2019Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1805, E-ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 53, nr 4, s. 206-212Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) have investigated the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and its effect on survival patients with non-metastatic muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). However, these RCTs have limited external validity and generalisability and, therefore, the current study aims to use real world evidence in the form of observational data to identify the effect that NAC may have on survival, compared to the use of radical cystectomy (RC) alone. Materials and methods: The study cohort (consisting of 944 patients) was selected as a target trial from the Bladder Cancer Data Base Sweden (BladderBaSe). This study calculated 5-year survival and risk of bladder cancer (BC)-specific and overall death by Cox proportional hazard models for the study cohort and a propensity score (PS) matched cohort. Results: Those who had received NAC had higher 5-year survival proportions and decreased risk of both overall and BC specific death (HR = 0.71, 95% CI = 0.52-0.97 and HR = 0.67, 95% CI = 0.48-0.94), respectively, as compared to patients who did not receive NAC. The PS matched cohort showed similar estimates, but with larger statistical uncertainty (Overall death: HR = 0.76, 95% CI = 0.53-1.09 and BC-specific death: HR = 0.73, 95% CI = 0.50-1.07). Conclusion: Results from the current observational study found similar point estimates for 5-year survival and of relative risks as previous studies. However, the results based on real world evidence had larger statistical variability, resulting in a non-statistically significant effect of NAC on survival. Future studies with detailed validated data can be used to further investigate the effect of NAC in narrower patient groups.

    Impact of hospital volume on local recurrence and distant metastasis in bladder cancer patients treated with radical cystectomy in Sweden2013Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 47, nr 6, s. 483-490Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective

    This study evaluated the impact of hospital volume on local recurrence and distant metastasis in a population-based series of radical cystectomy patients in Sweden.

    Material and methods

    All patients who underwent cystectomy for bladder cancer in 1997-2002 in Sweden and were reported to the National Bladder Cancer Registry were included. A high-volume hospital (HVH) was defined as one with ≥10 cystectomies/year and a low-volume hospital (LVH) as one with <10 cystectomies/year. Information on preoperative tumour, node, metastasis (TNM) classification, operative procedure, postoperative course and follow-up was obtained from medical records.

    Results

    Of the 1126 patients, 827 (74%) were males. The mean age was 66 years and median follow-up 47 months. Of the 610 (54%) HVH patients, 68 (11%) were pT0, 123 (20%) < pT2, 177 (29%) pT2, 242 (40%) > pT2 and 69 (11%) were microscopic non-radical. Corresponding figures for the 516 (46%) LVH patients were 35 (7%), 68 (13%), 191 (37%), 222 (43%) and 96 (19%). Local recurrence was observed in 245 patients (22%): 113 (19%) at HVHs and 132 (26%) at LVHs. Distant metastasis was found in 363 (32%): 203 (33%) at HVHs and 160 (31%) at LVHs. Perioperative chemotherapy was given to 193 (17%). Multivariate Cox proportional hazards analysis showed that local recurrence was associated with LVHs and non-organ-confined disease, whereas distant metastasis was correlated with non-organ-confined disease and lymph-node metastases.

    Conclusions

    In this retrospective analysis, local tumour recurrence after cystectomy was common, particularly in patients with non-organ-confined disease. Furthermore, local recurrence was more frequent at LVHs than HVHs, and overall survival was better at HVHs. These findings suggest that concentrating cystectomies in HVHs may improve outcomes such as local recurrence and overall survival.

    Secretions from seminal vesicles lack characteristic markers for prostasomes2010Ingår i: Upsala Journal of Medical Sciences, ISSN 0300-9734, E-ISSN 2000-1967, Vol. 115, nr 2, s. 107-112Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Prostasomes are suggested to be produced in the prostate gland. Although biochemical studies support this, some immunohistochemical findings indicate that also the seminal vesicles could be a source of prostasomes. Therefore, we have compared the secretion of the vesicles with that of the prostate using biochemical and ultrastructural techniques. Methods. Ultracentrifuged pellets of substance from seminal vesicle secretions were analysed by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and flow cytometry. The secretory cells of the seminal vesicles were examined with transmission electron microscopy. These findings were then compared with published results from similar studies of the prostate secretory cells. Results. In SDS-PAGE, the seminal vesicle pellets lacked the three prostasome-characteristic CD-markers, namely CD10, CD13, and CD26, but expressed two proteins of about 55 kDa and 70 kDa, corresponding to clusterin and heat shock protein (HSP70). Flow cytometry showed the presence of secretion particles in the seminal pellet, although of a smaller size than that of the prostasomes. Electron microscopy of the luminal part of the cells in the seminal vesicles demonstrated many secretion granules, each enclosed in a vesicle with a size of about 1 mum. Conclusions. Pelleted seminal vesicle secretion is different to prostate secretion in several ways. No prostasome characteristics were detected in the pelleted seminal vesicle secretion.

    Predictive value of secondary signs of obstruction in follow-up computed tomography of ureteral stones: a study with dynamic computed tomography2018Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1805, E-ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 52, nr 1, s. 59-64Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the ratio of obstruction and predictive values of secondary signs in follow-up computed tomography (CT) of ureterolithiasis patients; to correlate stone characteristics with obstruction; to compare enhancement of obstructed and non-obstructed kidneys; and to compare radiation dose of the dynamic CT protocol to an excretory-phase protocol.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study assessed 49 follow-up CT scans of patients with remaining ureterolithiasis after a renal colic episode. Obstruction was measured as time taken to excretion of contrast medium in dynamic CT. Degree of secondary signs of obstruction was evaluated from the unenhanced CT. Data were collected on patients' gender and age, stone size and location, time from renal colic to follow-up, attenuation of the renal cortex and radiation dose.

    RESULTS: Obstruction was present in 28% (n = 14) at follow-up. Predictive values (sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value) were calculated for hydronephrosis (1.0, 0.63, 0.52, 1.0), hydroureter (1.0, 0.4, 0.4, 1.0), perirenal stranding (0.21, 0.94, 0.6, 0.75), Gerota's fascia (0.21, 0.97, 0.75, 0.76) and renal swelling (0.21, 0.97, 0.75, 0.76). Obstruction was not correlated with stone characteristics. Enhancement was lower in obstructed kidneys (p < 0.01). Radiation dose was reduced by 43% (1.8 mSv).

    CONCLUSIONS: Obstruction was found in 28% of patients. Secondary signs were scarce and of indeterminate value to the diagnosis of obstruction. The absence of hydronephrosis and hydroureter contradicted obstruction. Stone characteristics were not correlated with obstruction. Enhancement of the renal cortex was lower in obstructed kidneys. The dynamic protocol reduced the radiation dose.

    Forkhead box F1 regulates tumor-promoting properties of cancer-associated fibroblasts in lung cancer2010Ingår i: Cancer Research, ISSN 0008-5472, E-ISSN 1538-7445, Vol. 70, nr 7, s. 2644-2654Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) attract increasing attention as potential cancer drug targets due to their ability to stimulate, for example, tumor growth, invasion, angiogenesis, and metastasis. However, the molecular mechanisms causing the tumor-promoting properties of CAFs remain poorly understood. Forkhead box F1 (FoxF1) is a mesenchymal target of hedgehog signaling, known to regulate mesenchymal-epithelial interactions during lung development. Studies with FoxF1 gain- and loss-of-function fibroblasts revealed that FoxF1 regulates the contractility of fibroblasts, their production of hepatocyte growth factor and fibroblast growth factor-2, and their stimulation of lung cancer cell migration. FoxF1 status of fibroblasts was also shown to control the ability of fibroblasts to stimulate xenografted tumor growth. FoxF1 was expressed in CAFs of human lung cancer and associated with activation of hedgehog signaling. These observations suggest that hedgehog-dependent FoxF1 is a clinically relevant lung CAF-inducing factor, and support experimentally the general concept that CAF properties can be induced by activation of developmentally important transcription factors.

    The impact of prostate-specific antigen level at diagnosis on the relative survival of 28,531 men with localized carcinoma of the prostate2008Ingår i: Cancer, ISSN 0008-543X, E-ISSN 1097-0142, Vol. 112, nr 4, s. 813-9Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: To evaluate the predictive value of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in a population-based cohort, the authors analyzed relative survival in all men with localized prostate cancer who were registered in the Swedish National Prostate Cancer Register (NPCR) from 1996 to 2005. METHODS: All men aged <75 years with localized tumors were identified in the NPCR. A Poisson regression analysis was performed using observed death as response and the expected death rate as offset. The expected and observed numbers of survivors were calculated with stratification for PSA level and 3 categories of tumor differentiation (Gleason score 2-6, 7, and 8-10). The regression model included PSA as linear splines with a breakpoint at a PSA level of 4 ng/mL and with tumor differentiation as a categoric variable. RESULTS: The Poisson regression analysis indicated a U-shaped curve for all 3 groups, with a negative correlation between PSA and relative survival in men with PSA levels <4 ng/mL and a positive correlation for men with PSA levels >4 ng/mL. The correlation was significant for all 3 groups, but the negative correlation between PSA and relative survival was significantly more pronounced in the group with Gleason scores from 8 to 10 than in the other 2 Gleason score groups. CONCLUSIONS: The demonstration of an inverse correlation between PSA level and relative survival in the group of men with PSA levels <4 ng/mL indicated the presence of a small but clinically important subgroup with undifferentiated tumors who have cells that have lost the ability to secrete PSA. This group should be taken into consideration when deciding on treatment and when choosing a cutoff level in PSA screening programs.
