According to the irradiation volume, patients were allocated into either the elective nodal irradiation ENI group or the IFI group. Overall survival OSprogression-free survival PFS and treatment-related toxicities were compared between the two groups.
Results A total of patients were enrolled. Introduction Esophageal cancer EC is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths globally in men and the eighth in women. An estimatednew EC cases occurred in worldwide [ 1 ]. However, elderly patients are underrepresented in clinical trials, and specific treatment recommendations for this group are often lacking.
With the extension of life expectancy and the need for high quality of life, evidence-based data are essential to guide the treatment of these patients. Notwithstanding numerous disadvantages from which these patients may suffer, such as physiologic status and comorbidities, aggressive treatment should not be avoided in the heterogeneous elderly population.
Furthermore, the toxicities and side effects induced by treatment and the benefits of survival should be well balanced. Radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy is the definitive treatment strategy for patients with unresectable EC and those who refuse surgery.
Therefore, we performed a retrospective study to investigate the effect and toxicities of IFI in elderly patients with unresectable esophageal squamous cell cancer ESCC and compared the outcomes to those achieved with ENI in the same setting. Materials and Methods Patients We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients with histologically-proven ESCC treated in our cancer center between January and March Positive supraclavicular LNs, left gastric arterial and celiac axis nodes as well as regional LNs were included.
According to the difference in the irradiation field, all patients treated with radiotherapy were divided into either the ENI group or the IFI group, with chemotherapy or not.
Patients were excluded if they had carcinoma in any other site or had a history of prior treatment. All study participants provided informed consent. Patient information was anonymized and de-identified prior to analysis. The study was approved by the institutional review board and ethics committee at the Shandong Cancer Hospital and Institute.
Radiotherapy Radiation therapy was to be delivered with three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy or Intensity Modulated Irradiation Therapy. Patients were treated 5 days per week at 1. The criterion for LN involvement was at least one of the following: The presence of extra-nodal tumor extension and peripheral enhanced LNs helped us to determine metastatic status.
Elective treatment of nodal regions depended upon the location of the primary tumor. For example, the supraclavicular nodes and the celiac nodes were included for the upper thoracic esophagus and the lower esophagus, respectively. A booster dose was further administered to the primary tumor and the involved LN up to a total dose of 50— Chemotherapy In the whole group, 65 Among the patients who underwent chemotherapy, 27 For induction chemotherapy, irradiation therapy was started 1 week after chemotherapy was finished.
Concurrent chemotherapy began from the first day of irradiation. Sequential chemotherapy was started 1 week after the radiotherapy was completed. Typically, patients received 2 cycles of platinum-based chemotherapy with combined 5-fluorouracil and a taxane docetaxel or paclitaxel.
Toxicity and Endpoints Treatment-induced toxicities, including Leukopenia, anemia, thrombocytopenia, esophagitis and pneumonitis, were assessed using the RTOG grading criteria.Eni’s Sannazzaro oil refinery, 60km south-west of Milan, is an industrial island surrounded by agriculture.
