研究发现转移性结直肠癌初始治疗后转用温和化疗更有益

亚利桑那州,凤凰城 — 项在5,540名转移性结直肠癌患者中进行的Mayo Clinic研究发现,对于病情得到控制的患者而言,在初始治疗后进行维持化疗比激进治疗更有益。  Mayo Clinic对12项随机临床试验的结果进行分析后发现,使用氟嘧啶类药物进行化疗(例如5-FU或卡培他滨)进行维持治疗是首选,尽管有些患者也适合仅接受观察而不接受化疗。此研究发表于JAMA Oncology。  “这些发现表明,转用较温和的维持化疗方案,甚至对于部分患者而言暂停治疗,等到疾病进展时再恢复全面化疗,是适当的做法,”Mayo Clinic肿瘤科医生医学博士Mohamad Sonbol 说道。  “转移性结直肠癌治疗的目标是延长寿命,同时维持或改善生活质量。由于这些疗法大多数都具有副作用,因此使用能以最少的副作用获得最大疗效的疗法非常重要。”研究的第一作者Sonbol医生说。  结直肠癌是全美第三大常见癌症。四分之一的患者在确诊时,癌症已扩散到其他器官。已有随机对照试验将初始治疗后持续激进化疗的不同策略与温和的维持化疗及单纯观察(无化疗)进行了比较检验。  这些试验的结果不一致,因此难以得出最终结论。Mayo Clinic此次研究对12项试验的结果进行网络荟萃分析,以比较所使用的治疗策略及其结果。  该分析表明,与其他策略相比,在疾病进展之前持续进行全面化疗并没有益处。此外,与单纯接受观察相比,所有维持治疗策略均显示出更好的疾病控制效果,即更长的无进展生存期。研究人员进一步比较了所用的不同维持治疗,发现首选的治疗方案是氟嘧啶联合或不联合贝伐单抗(一种与抗癌药物联合使用的药物)。  “许多化疗在开始的时候可有效缩小和控制癌症。”Mayo Clinic胃肠肿瘤科医生兼本研究的高级作者医学博士Tanios Bekaii-Saab 说道。“但是,在经过几个月的治疗后,疗效通常已达到最大,此时的重点应该放在如何在将副作用减到最低的同时继续取得疗效。这项研究证实,转用维持治疗,等到病进展后再进行全面化疗,是适当且有益的。”  ###  关于Mayo Clinic Mayo Clinic是一家专注于临床实践、医学教育和与科学研究的非营利性学术医疗组机构,致力于为每位患者提供精准诊断、专业治疗与悉心照料。访问Mayo…

Mayo Clinic研究人员认为是否绝经是导致子宫内膜癌的关键因素

明尼苏达州,罗切斯特— 子宫内膜癌是美国最常见的妇科恶性肿瘤,其发病率居女性癌症第四位。此外,西方国家/地区的子宫内膜癌发病率也呈上升趋势,这表明饮食、生活方式和阴道菌群等环境因素的改变可能是其发生的重要驱动因素。 在《科学报告》(Scientific Reports)上发表的一项研究中,Mayo Clinic研究人员确定了一种与子宫内膜癌有关的微生物群系特征,其在一定程度上是由绝经后这一因素驱动。该研究的目的是了解子宫内膜癌的风险因素如何改变生殖系统的微生物群系以及子宫内膜癌的风险。 “如果微生物群系在子宫内膜癌的发展过程中发挥了作用,那么它除了可以作为子宫内膜癌的标志物之外,还可能对子宫内膜癌的预防具有重要意义。”Mayo Clinic研究的第一作者、Marina Walther-Antonio博士说。 Walther-Antonio博士认为,阴道菌群是阴道和产道健康的关键因素,且不同种族之间的阴道菌群存在差异,这更加凸显了探索子宫内膜癌相关的微生物群系的重要性。 该研究小组之前发现,2017年发表的一项子宫微生物群系研究已表明子宫内膜癌患者与非患者之间存在微生物群系差异,并由此开发出了阴道拭子检查法用于子宫内膜癌筛查。 “新开展的这项研究为进一步开发子宫内膜癌筛查工具提供了所需的知识和方法。”Walther-Antonio博士说道。 Walther-Antonio博士和其他研究人员目前正在研究微生物群系在子宫内膜癌中的作用,以及其在阻止有害细菌对宿主造成伤害的作用。 总体而言,该小组证实了子宫内膜癌的已知主要风险因素,即绝经后和肥胖,并确定了阴道高pH值是另一个与子宫内膜癌相关的因素。 Walther-Antonio博士表示:“我们已经确定所有这些因素都会影响生殖系统的微生物群系,并进一步确定了绝经后是一个关键因素。我们期望在未来讨论此知识的潜在转化应用,这可能会为解决当前子宫内膜癌的健康差异带来新的方法。” 该研究得到了Mayo Clinic个体化医疗中心微生物项目和John W. Anderson基金会的支持。此项目得到了美国转化科学促进中心(NCATS) CTSA基金号KL2 TR002379的支持。此外,NIH基金P50 CA136393职业发展奖也在一定程度上为此研究提供了支持。 作者声明存在以下竞争利益:Mayo Foundation for Medical…
