Catching up on HPV-related cancers: diagnostic advances and treatment controversies NittayaPhanuphak, MD, PhD Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre Bangkok, Thailand
Outline • HPV – HIV – Cancers • Screening programs to prevent cervical cancer and anal cancer • Facts and challenges when making decision to screen/treat anal pre-cancerous lesions
HPV – HIV – Cancers • HAART prolongs survival of PLHIV but may have incomplete immune recovery • Lack of decline or increased incidence of HPV-related cancers among PLHIV in the HAART era Palefsky JM 2011
Cervical cancer in HIV+ women SIR 8.9 for in situ cancer, 5.6 for invasive cancer Incidence per 100,000 PY Chaturvedi AK, et al. J Natl Cancer Inst 2009;101:1120-30.
Anal cancer in HIV+ men and women Incidence per 100,000 PY MEN WOMEN Chaturvedi AK, et al. J Natl Cancer Inst 2009;101:1120-30.
Oropharyngeal cancer in HIV+ men and women Incidence per 100,000 PY SIR 1.6 Chaturvedi AK, et al. J Natl Cancer Inst 2009;101:1120-30.
HPV infection and dysplastic transformation Cancer Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL) High-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL) Normal Modified from Palefsky JM 2011
Screening program and prevention of cervical cancer • Rates of cervical cancer have declined in settings where screening programs have been implemented successfully • No RCT performed prior to widespread screening program • Observational studies confirmed risk of invasive cancer in women with high-grade cervical dysplasia • Screening programs remain difficult to implement in low and middle-income settings McCredie MR, et al. Lancet Oncol 2008; 9: 425–34. McIndoe WA, et al. ObstetGynecol 1984;64:451-8.
Screening program and prevention of anal cancer YES • More clinics now offer screening for anal HSIL among patients at “high risk” for anal cancer, as a strategy to prevent anal cancer, based on the etiological and pathological similarities to cervical cancer • NO • More research is needed to understand the natural history of anal HSIL and to prove the efficacy and acceptability of its treatment Pria AD, et al. AIDS 2013; 27: 1185-6. Grulich AE, et al. Sex Health 2012;9:628-31.
Cervical HPV and histologic HSIL among HIV+ women SUN (US) THAILAND • Progression of CIN 3 to cervical cancer = 1 in 80 per year Prevalence(%) All histologic SIL Histologic HSIL Histologic SIL Histologic SIL Cervical cancer rate in HIV+ women = 90 / 100,000 Kojic EM, et al. Sex TransmDis 2011;38:253-9. Ramautarsing R, et al. 27thInt HPV Conf 2011, Berlin, P-32.33. Chaturvedi AK, et al. J Natl Cancer Inst 2009;101:1120-30. McCredie MR, et al. Lancet Oncol 2008;9:425-34.
Anal HPV and histologic HSIL among HIV+ women SUN (US) THAILAND • Anal SIL is as common as cervical SIL • More common in women with cervical, vulvar, vaginal high-grade diseases Prevalence(%) All histologic SIL Histologic HSIL Histologic SIL Anal cancer rate in HIV+ women = 11 / 100,000 Hessol NA, et al. AIDS 2009;23:59-70. Chaithongwongwatthana S, et al. IGCS 2012. Chaturvedi AK, et al. J Natl Cancer Inst 2009;101:1120-30.
Anal HPV and histologic HSIL among HIV+ and HIV- MSM Meta-analysis CHINA THAILAND Prevalence(%) • Progression rate of anal HSIL to cancer (per year) • Theoretical: HIV+ MSM = 1 in 600, HIV- MSM = 1 in 4000 • Australia (73% HIV+ MSM): 1 in 80 Prevalence(%) HIV-negative HIV-negative HIV-negative Anal cancer rate in HIV+ MSM = 78 / 100,000 and in HIV- MSM = 5 / 100,000 Phanuphak N, et al.

Anal HSIL screening • No standard screening guidelines • New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute • Screen at baseline and annually for HIV+: MSM, anogenital warts, abnormal vulvar/cervical histology New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute: www.hivguidelines.orgOct 2007. Palefsky JM 2011.
Need for better biomarkers for screening • Anal cytology limitation • Low sensitivity and poor correlation with histologic grading • HRA limitation • Expensive and very limited number of trained physicians/nurses • Potential HGAIN biomarkers • p16 and other cell cycle markers: immunocytochemistry • E6/E7 mRNA: flow cytometry • E6 oncoproteins: rapid test • HPV DNA detection: screening test/genotyping assay Panther LA, et al. Clin Infect Dis. 2004;38:1490-1492.
Biomarkers for anal HSIL Best for prediction of disease In the future Best for detection of disease at that visit Phanuphak N, et al. (Submitted)
Treatment of anal HSIL • Various “in-office” treatment options are available • Side effects are not uncommon but manageable, some concerns about long-term sexual functioning • Treatment causes regression of lesions, although no prove that it will prevent anal cancer • Recurrence rate is substantial but usually is minimal • Better treatment modalities are needed Richel O, et al. Lancet Oncol 2012;14:346-53. Fox PA. Sex Health 2012;9:628-31.
Treatment of anal cancer • Combination chemoradiation as the first-line therapy • In very selected cases, local excision may be used as primary treatment, often with chemoradiation • Salvage abdominoperineal resection for persistent or recurrent anal cancers Szmulowicz UM and Wu JS. Sex Health 2012;9:593-609. SEER 2011.
Do I want to screen my patient? No • More research is needed on • Natural history of anal HSIL YES • What do you want to screen for? • Anal cancer: Digital ano-rectal exam • Anal HSIL: Cytology+/-HSIL biomarkers and high-resolution anoscopy
Do I want to treat anal HSIL in my patient? YES • Use treatment modalities currently available • More research is needed on • Better treatment of anal HSIL No • Frequent follow-up • More research is needed on • Natural history of anal HSIL • Anal cancer biomarkers • Better treatment of anal HSIL and its side effects
Summary • HAART not reducing HPV-related cancers • Some cancers increasing • HIV+ men and women are more likely to have HSIL than HIV- men and women • High prevalence of anal HSIL in HIV+ MSM and women • Several challenges are there when considering screening programs for anal HSIL • Dependent on clinician’s interpretation of the data and readiness of the local health systems
