  • Women treated for gynaecological cancer during young adulthood : A mixed-methods study of perceived psychological distress and experiences of support from health care following end-of-treatment
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - 0090-8258 .- 1095-6859. ; 149:3, s. 464-469
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE:To investigate the prevalence and predictors of cancer-related distress in younger women treated for gynaecological cancer, and to explore women's needs and experiences of psychosocial support following end-of-treatment.METHODS:Data were collected from 337 gynaecological cancer survivors, 19-39years at diagnosis, using a study-specific questionnaire and the Swedish Quality Register of Gynaecologic Cancer. Predictors of distress were investigated with multivariable logistic regression analysis. Open-ended questions were analysed with content analysis.RESULTS:The prevalence of cancer-related distress was 85% (n=286) including fear of cancer-recurrence (n=175, 61%), anxiety (n=152, 53%), depression (n=145, 51%), fear of death (n=91, 32%), concerns regarding sexuality (n=87, 34%) and fertility (n=78, 27%), and changed body image (n=78, 27%). Multi-modal treatment (OR 2.25, 95% CI 1.13-4.49) and a history of psychological distress (OR 3.44, 95% CI 1.41-8.39) predicted cancer-related distress. The majority of women experiencing distress also reported a need for support after end-of-treatment (n=205, 71%). One-third of those receiving support reported the received support as inadequate (n=55, 34%). Eight categories described reasons for not seeking support, e.g., lacked strength to seek professional support and too busy managing every-day life and, wanted help but did not know who to turn to. Four categories described reasons for not receiving sought support e.g., found it difficult to openly express feelings, psychosocial care was under-dimensioned, insufficient and unprofessional.CONCLUSION:Results identify the importance of support and longer-term follow-up for young survivors of gynaecological cancer. The support needs to be organised to meet this group's specific needs.

  • Validation of the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS) in recurrent ovarian cancer (ROC) : Analysis of patients enrolled in the GCIG Symptom Benefit Study (SBS)
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - Academic Press. - 0090-8258. ; 148:1, s. 36-41
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS) is predictive of survival in many advanced cancers, but has not been evaluated in recurrent ovarian cancer (ROC). The aim was to determine validity of mGPS in ROC, investigate its associations with health related quality of life (HRQL) and ECOG performance status (PS).METHODS: mGPS is based on serum C reactive protein (CRP) and albumin, with scores ranging from 0 (least) to 2 (most). HRQL was measured with EORTC QLQ C-30 and OV-28. χ2 tests for trend were used to examine the relationship between HRQL, PS and mGPS. Cox proportional hazards regression was used to assess associations between mGPS, HRQL, clinicopathological factors, and overall survival (OS).RESULTS: Inflammatory markers were available in 516 of 948 patients in GCIG SBS. 200(39%) had potentially platinum sensitive ROC with ≥3 lines of chemotherapy, 316(61%) had platinum resistant ROC. 282(55%), 123(24%), 111(22%) had mGPS of 0, 1, 2, respectively. Median OS (months) was 18.1, 9.6, and 6.6 for mGPS 0, 1, and 2 respectively. mGPS was an independent predictor of OS after adjusting for PS and platinum sensitivity (p<0.001). mGPS remained a predictor of OS after adjusting for physical function, role function, global health status, abdominal/GI symptoms, and multiple clinicopathologic factors (p=0.02). Worse PS and higher mGPS were associated with poorer HRQL (p<0.001). Higher mGPS was associated with worse HRQL, independent of PS.CONCLUSION: The mGPS is an independent predictor of OS in ROC after adjusting for HRQL and clinicopathological factors. Higher mGPS is associated with worse HRQL independent of PS. mGPS is simple, inexpensive and may be suitable for clinical practice, clinical trial patient selection and stratification.

  • Long-term incidence of female-specific cancer after bariatric surgery or usual care in the Swedish Obese Subjects Study
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - 0090-8258. ; 145:2, s. 224-229
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective. To examine the long-term effects of bariatric surgery on female-specific cancer in women with obesity. Methods. The prospective, matched Swedish Obese Subjects (SOS) study was designed to examine outcomes after bariatric surgery. This study includes 1420 women from the SOS cohort that underwent bariatric surgery and 1447 contemporaneously matched controls who received conventional obesity treatment. Age was 3760 years and BMI was >= 38 kg/m(2). Information on cancer events was obtained from the Swedish National Cancer Registry. Median follow-up time was 18.1 years (interquartile range 14.8-20.9 years, maximum 26 years). This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT01479452. Results. Bariatric surgery was associated with reduced risk of overall cancer (hazard ratio = 0.71; 95% CI 0.59-0.85; p < 0.001). About half of the observed cancers were female-specific, and the incidence of these were lower in the surgery group compared with the control group (hazard ratio = 0.68; 95% CI 0.52-0.88; p = 0.004). The surgical treatment benefit with respect to female-specific cancer was significantly associated with baseline serum insulin (interaction p value = 0.022), with greater relative treatment benefit in patients with medium or high insulin levels. Separate analyses of different types of female-specific cancers showed that bariatric surgery was associated with reduced risk of endometrial cancer (hazard ratio = 0.56: 95% CI 035-0.89; p = 0.014). Conclusions. In this long-term study, bariatric surgery was associated with reduced risk of female-specific cancer, especially in women with hyperinsulinemia at baseline.

  • Primary treatment patterns and survival of cervical cancer in Sweden : A population-based Swedish Gynecologic Cancer Group Study
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - Academic Press. - 0090-8258.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: Survival in cervical cancer has improved little over the last decades. We aimed to elucidate primary treatment patterns and survival. Methods: Population-based study of patients included in the Swedish Quality Registry for Gynecologic Cancer diagnosed 2011–2015. Main outcome was 5-year relative survival (RS). Age-standardised RS (AS-RS) was estimated for the total cohort and for the pooled study population of squamous, adenosquamous-, adenocarcinoma. Results: Median follow-up time was 4.6 years. The study population consisted of 2141 patients; 97% of the 2212 patients in the total cohort and the 5-year AS-RS was 71% and 70%, respectively. RS stage IB1: surgery alone 95% vs. 72% for definitive chemoradiotherapy (CT-RT) (p < 0.001). In stage IIA1 74% had CT-RT, and 47% of operated patients received adjuvant (CT)-RT. RS stage IB2: surgically treated 81% (69% received adjuvant (CT)-RT) vs. 76% for (CT)-RT (p = 0.73). RS stage IIB: 77% for CT-RT + brachytherapy (BT), 37% for RT + BT (p = 0.045) and 27% for RT-BT (p < 0.001). Stages III-IVA; <40% received CT-RT + BT, RS 45% vs. 18% for RT-BT (RR 4.1, p < 0.001). RS stage IVB 7%. Conclusion: Primary treatment of cervical cancer in Sweden adhered to evidence-based standard of care. Areas of improvement include optimising treatment for stages III-IVA, and avoiding combining surgery and radiotherapy.

  • Leiomyosarcoma of the uterus: A clinicopathologic, DNA flow cytometric, p53, and mdm-2 analysis of 49 cases
  • 1998
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - 0090-8258. ; 68:1, s. 54-61
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • AIM: The authors analyzed in a retrospective manner the prognostic significance of p53 and mdm-2 expression, DNA ploidy, S-phase fraction (SPF), and traditional clinical and pathological prognostic factors in patients with uterine leiomyosarcomas. MATERIAL: Forty-nine patients were diagnosed with uterine leiomyosarcoma (25 stage I, 4 stage II, 8 stage III, and 12 stage IV). DNA flow cytometric analysis and immunohistochemical staining for p53 and mdm-2 were performed on paraffin-embedded archival tissue from the uterine tumors. RESULTS: Of the 49 patients, 35 (71%) died of disease and 2 died of intercurrent disease. The 5-year survival rate was 33%. FIGO surgical stage, DNA ploidy, SPF, mitotic index, cellular atypia, and tumor grade obtained significance (P &lt; 0.05) in a univariate survival analysis of the leiomyosarcomas. In a multivariate analysis with survival as the end point, stage was found to be the most important factor (P = 0.007); DNA ploidy (P = 0. 045) and SPF (P = 0.041) also had independent prognostic significance. For FIGO stage I tumors, DNA ploidy (P = 0.04) and tumor grade (P = 0.01) were statistically significant in a univariate analysis, while only grade had independent prognostic significance (P = 0.01) in a multivariate analysis. In a univariate analysis including only FIGO stage I and II tumors with disease-free survival as the end point, p53 overexpression (P = 0.0016), DNA ploidy (P = 0.042), and tumor grade (P = 0.008) obtained significance. In a multivariate analysis, only p53 had independent statistical significance (P = 0.01). All p53 immunopositive stage I-II tumors recurred within 28 months from diagnosis. CONCLUSION: This study found that stage represents the most important prognostic factor for uterine leiomyosarcomas. DNA ploidy and SPF had independent prognostic value. DNA flow cytometry is useful in gaining additional prognostic information. In stage I patients, tumor grade gives significant information regarding clinical outcome. In addition, p53 overexpression may predict a higher risk of recurrence in early stage leiomyosarcomas.

  • Malignant mixed Mullerian tumors of the uterus: a clinicopathologic, DNA flow cytometric, p53, and mdm-2 analysis of 44 cases
  • 1998
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - 0090-8258. ; 68:1, s. 18-24
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • AIM: The authors retrospectively analyzed the prognostic significance of p53, mdm-2, DNA ploidy, S-phase fraction (SPF), and traditional clinical and pathologic factors in patients with malignant mixed Müllerian tumors (MMMT) of the uterus. METHODS: Between 1970 and 1995, 44 uterine tumors were diagnosed as MMMT (21 stage I, 2 stage II, 10 stage III, and 11 stage IV). Thirty-two were homologous type and 12 were heterologous type. DNA flow cytometry and immunohistochemical analysis for p53 and mdm-2 overexpression were performed on paraffin-embedded archival tissue. RESULTS: 68% of the tumors were nondiploid and 61% had an SPF greater than 10%. Sixty-one percent overexpressed p53 and 25% were mdm-2-positive. Furthermore, 91% of the tumors had a mitotic count greater than 10/10 hpf and 95% had high-grade cytologic atypia. Twenty-seven (61%) patients died of tumor and 6 (14%) died of intercurrent disease. Eleven (25%) patients are alive with no evidence of disease. The median follow-up for patients still alive was 59 months (range, 28-178 months). The overall 5-year survival rate was 38%. In a univariate analysis that included stage, histologic type, DNA ploidy, SPF, p53, mdm-2, mitotic index, and age, and with survival as the end point, only stage reached statistically prognostic significance. CONCLUSION: The majority of the tumors had obvious signs of aggressiveness such as high grade, high mitotic count, nondiploid pattern, high SPF, and overexpression of p53. This study found that stage is the most important prognostic factor for survival in MMMTs of the uterus.

  • Prognostic impact of the expression of Hedgehog proteins in cervical carcinoma FIGO stages I-IV treated with radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Gynecologic Oncology. - Academic Press. - 0090-8258. ; 135:2, s. 305-311
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: Hedgehog signaling proteins were assessed in patients with cervical carcinoma receiving chemoradiation. Associations between five Hedgehog proteins and prognosis were studied.Methods: In all, 131 cases of cervical carcinomas (FIGO stages I-IV) were immunohistochemically (IHC) analyzed for Patched (PTCH), Smoothened (SMO), and GLI1, GLI2 and GLI3 protein expression. Associations between Hedgehog protein expressions, clinicopathological factors, and clinical outcome data were examined.Results: Positive IHC staining for the five Hedgehog proteins was recorded in 8% to 37% of the tumor cells. The highest frequency was noted for SMO and the lowest for all. There was a significant association between low SMO- and GLI2-expression and KRAS-mutation. Tumors with overexpressed SMO had a higher frequency of residual tumor or local recurrences than tumors with low SMO expression. Patients with tumors expressing PTCH in more than 75% of the cells had significantly (P = 0.023) better recurrence-free survival than patients with tumors with low expression. The opposite situation was true for SMO. For GLI2, there was a statistically significant difference with regard to overall (P = 0.004) and distant (P = 0.015) relapse rate for groups with expression of GLI2 in the range of 5-25% compared to higher rates.Conclusions: A predictive and prognostic value was found for PTCH, SMO, and GLI2 with regard to residual carcinoma, local recurrences, and for GLI2 distant relapses. The Hedgehog signaling pathway also seems to play an important role in cervical carcinogenesis together with HPV16-infection and KRAS-mutation.
