    1. Phase I study of bortezomib in combination with irinotecan in patients with relapsed/refractory high-risk neuroblastoma

      Prognosis for relapsed/refractory high-risk neuroblastoma (HR-NBL) remains poor. Bortezomib, a proteasome inhibitor, has shown preclinical activity against NBL as a single agent and in combination with cytotoxic chemotherapy including irinotecan.

      Eighteen HR-NBL patients with primary refractory (n = 8) or relapsed (n = 10) disease were enrolled in a Phase I study using modified Time To Event Continual Reassessment Method.

    6. Premature physeal closure following 13-cis-retinoic acid and prolonged fenretinide administration in neuroblastoma

      "Retinoid therapy has contributed to improved outcomes in neuroblastoma. Clinical trials of fenretinide report favorable toxicity and disease stabilization in patients with high risk (HR) neuroblastoma. Skeletal effects have been described with other retinoids, but not with fenretinide to date. Two patients with HR, metastatic, refractory neuroblastoma received protracted courses of oral fenretinide for more than 5 years’ duration. Both developed premature long bone physeal closure, causing limb length discrepancies; their neuroblastoma remains in remission. The radiographic and clinical findings reported suggest these skeletal abnormalities may be a consequence of treatment with 13-cis-retinoic acid (13cisRA) followed ...

    9. Evaluation and Management of Hearing Loss in Survivors of Childhood and Adolescent Cancers: A Report From the Children's Oncology Group

      Hearing loss (HL) is common in childhood cancer survivors exposed to platinum chemotherapy and/or cranial radiation and can severely impact quality of life. Early detection and appropriate management can mitigate academic, speech, language, social, and psychological morbidity resulting from hearing deficits. This review is targeted as a resource for providers involved in aftercare of childhood cancers.

    10. Impaired Left Ventricular Reserve in Childhood Cancer Survivors Treated With Anthracycline Therapy

      Childhood cancer survivors show evidence of diffuse myocardial fibrosis that is related to exercise capacity. The mechanism of reduced exercise tolerance in anthracycline cardiotoxicity remains unclear. We explored the determinants of exercise intolerance by evaluating left ventricular (LV) distensibility and functional reserve.

    11. Individualized 131I-mIBG therapy in the management of refractory and relapsed neuroblastoma.

      "The mean administered activity was 11089±7222 MBq and the mean whole-body dose for a single administration was 1.79±0.57 Gy. Tumour-absorbed doses varied considerably (3.70±3.37 mGy/MBq). CTCAE grade 3/4 neutropenia was documented following 82% treatments and grade 3/4 thrombocytopenia following 71% treatments. Further acute toxicity was found in 49% of patients. All acute toxicities resolved with appropriate therapy. The overall response rate was 58% (complete or partial response), with a further 29% of patients having stable disease."

    12. Short-Interval Retreatment With Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) for Pediatric Neuroblastoma Resulting in Severe Myositis.

      "We report a severe and not previously reported toxicity after short-interval retreatment with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in a pediatric patient with neuroblastoma. This patient experienced Grade III radiation myositis [inflammation and degeneration of muscle tissue] after treatment with conventional radiation therapy followed by high-dose SBRT for persistent disease a short interval after the initial radiotherapy course. While SBRT shows outstanding rates of local control in adult disease, data in pediatric cancers are extremely limited. In this report, we discuss the rationale of SBRT in this patient's multimodality neuroblastoma treatment, management of the toxicity, and future perspectives on the ...

      "Thirty-five patients, median age 4, in Boston (2007-2011) and 38 patients, median age 3, in Cairo (2009-2011). Renal toxicity; creatinine was significantly higher in CEM than Bu/Mel: 57% (median day+90) vs. 29% (median>day+100), p = 0.004. One CEM patient died from renal dialysis at day+19.

    17. Impact of Whole-Body Radiation Dose on Response and Toxicity in Patients With Neuroblastoma After Therapy With 131I-Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG)

      131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG) is a targeted radiopharmaceutical for patients with neuroblastoma. Despite its tumor-specific uptake, the treatment with 131I-MIBG results in whole-body radiation exposure. Our aim was to correlate whole-body radiation dose (WBD) from 131I-MIBG with tumor response, toxicities, and other clinical factors.

      "When OMS relapsed during the time when prednisolone was reduced, he was treated with full-dose RTX therapy (375mg/m2/week) for 4 consecutive weeks. However, 1year later, he presented again with OMS symptoms. This time, we only administered an additional single dose of RTX treatment (375mg/m2), allowing remission of OMS symptoms. During 2years after the additional RTX treatment, OMS symptoms did not appear, even when prednisolone was reduced. He had no adverse events associated with RTX during the whole treatment period."
