- Brief summaryDespite significant progress, there is a high need for new effective systemic treatments for advanced/metastatic breast cancer (BC) patients. Cisplatin (cDDP) is used in many tumor types but not in unselected BC patients. In old studies (± 1980s), cDDP monotherapy, given to highly pretreated patients, yielded response rates (RR) of maximum 21% and PFS of 3–4 months. Also, cDDP-containing combination regimens given to pretreated metastatic BC patients have not greatly improved outcomes. In addition, cDDP is associated with relevant toxicity, consisting of nausea and vomiting, nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity. Fortunately, due to decades of acquired experience with cDDP and improved anti-emetics, cDDP associated toxicity is nowadays more manageable. However, due to the availability of effective and less toxic newer chemotherapeutical and targeted agents, cDDP is not considered standard therapy in unselected BC patients. Recently, the use of cDDP in BC has regained interest. Several attempts have been made to identify patients who are likely to benefit from cDDP-based treatment based on primary tumor characteristics such as mutations, overexpression and promotor hypermethylation of BRCA1, p53 mutations, so-called triple-negative disease and expression of specific microRNAs. Since data from prospective clinical trials exploring the use of the previously mentioned factors is lacking, there is still an unmet need for factors identifying BC patients likely to benefit from cDDP. If available, cDDP could add an extra available anti-tumor agent for a particular subgroup of BC patients.
One potential pitfall that may cause the previously mentioned factors to be less reliable is the fact that they all have been determined on primary tumor tissue. It is becoming increasingly clear that the characteristics of the primary tumor and metastases may differ, while systemic treatment and genomic instability further augments these differences over time. As a result, primary tumor material obtained at diagnosis is unlikely to reliably represent characteristics of metastases. Unfortunately, tumor tissues of metastatic lesions are hard to obtain, as taking biopsies is often a painful and cumbersome procedure.
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are tumor cells that circulate in the peripheral blood of cancer patients and are thought to represent features of metastases better than the primary tumor does. In addition, CTC counts have been correlated with clinical outcome in metastatic BC. Besides that, molecular characterization of CTCs holds great promise as a tool to personalize medicine. We have recently developed a panel of 96 genes, of which 55 mRNAs and 10 miRNAs are CTC-specific, which can be reliably measured in CTCs enabling detailed CTC characterization. From these 96 genes, we identified 23 genes that predict cDDP sensitivity and resistance. Potentially, determination of this gene expression profile in CTCs of BC patients will enable the identification of BC patients responding to cDDP.
The aim of this study is to prospectively explore the predictive value of a cDDP-sensitivity profile determined in CTCs of metastatic BC patients previously treated with at least anthracycline- and taxane-based chemotherapy.
