    © 2020 Japanese Dermatological Association Monthly docetaxel (DTX) monotherapy is the first-line regimen that is preferably used for metastatic extramammary Paget’s disease (EMPD). However, the high-dose DTX regimen frequently causes severe hematological adverse events (AE). To overcome such safety concerns, a weekly low-dose DTX monotherapy has been proposed for use in the treatment of various cancer types. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of weekly DTX (25 mg/m2) monotherapy for metastatic EMPD by retrospectively analyzing the clinical courses of 14 patients treated with this regimen. Weekly DTX monotherapy was well tolerated and all patients completed the treatment schedule without treatment withdrawal, dose reduction or treatment-related death. While five cases (35.7%) experienced hematological AE, their severity was mild. The response rate was 35.7% (5/14 cases), which included five partial responses. The mean progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival were 7.1 (95% confidence interval [CI], 5.1–9.1) and 26.4 months (95% CI, 16.7–36.1), respectively. Furthermore, the median PFS was 7.3 months (95% CI, 4.5–10.0) in patients aged 65 years and younger and 7.1 months (95% CI, 4.4–9.9) in patients older than 65 years. These results suggest that weekly DTX monotherapy may be a useful regimen that has a high treatment continuation rate with low levels of hematological toxicity, regardless of the patient’s age for metastatic EMPD.

Background: The management of distant metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) relies mainly on chemotherapies and radiotherapy. Management of patients with cSCC with surgically resectable distant metastatic lesions is not clear. Case Report: A 59-year-old male had 4×10 cmsized cSCC on the perianal skin with inguinal lymph node metastasis. Surgical resection was performed followed by radiation and adjuvant carboplatin and farmorubicin combination therapy. Six months later, 25 mm-sized solitary metastatic nodule arose on the liver. Base on his favorable overall condition fulfilling the criteria of tumor resectability for the treatment of tumors in liver and having good performance status, laparoscopic partial hepatectomy and six courses of adjuvant irinotecan therapy were performed. The surgical margin was negative and the patient has maintained complete remission for over 3 years. Conclusion: The clinical course of the present case suggests that surgical approaches should also be considered as candidate additional therapy for resectable distant metastatic cSCC.

    © 2018 The Authors. Cancer Science published by John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd on behalf of Japanese Cancer Association. Metastasis is the leading cause of cancer death. A tumor-supportive microenvironment, or premetastatic niche, at potential secondary tumor sites plays an important role in metastasis, especially in tumor cell colonization. Although a fibrotic milieu is known to promote tumorigenesis and metastasis, the underlying molecular contributors to this effect have remained unclear. Here we show that periostin, a component of the extracellular matrix that functions in tissue remodeling, has a key role in formation of a fibrotic environment that promotes tumor metastatic colonization. We found that periostin was widely expressed in fibrotic lesions of mice with bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis, and that up-regulation of periostin expression coincided with activation of myofibroblasts positive for α-smooth muscle actin. We established a lung metastasis model for B16 murine melanoma cells and showed that metastatic colonization of the lung by these cells was markedly promoted by bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis. Inhibition of periostin expression by giving an intratracheal antisense oligonucleotide targeting periostin mRNA was found to suppress bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis and thereby to attenuate metastatic colonization of the lung by melanoma cells. Our results indicate that periostin is a key player in the development of bleomycin-induced fibrosis and consequent enhancement of tumor cell colonization in the lung. Our results therefore implicate periostin as a potential target for prevention or treatment of lung metastasis.
