  • 1. Antonio ROSSI, MD Division of Medical Oncology, “S.G. MOSCATI” HOSPITAL, AVELLINO - ITALY La classificazione TNM: cosa cambia?
  • 2. Thanks to…
  • 3. Component of the classification Changes T To subclassify T1 according to tumor size in T1a: < 2 cm and T1b: > 2 cm but < 3 cm To subclassify T2 according to tumor size in T2a: > 3 cm but < 5 cm (or tumor with any other tumor descriptors, but < 5 cm) and T2b: > 5 cm but < 7 cm To reclassify T2 tumors > 7 cm as T3 To reclassify T4 tumors by additional nodule/s in the same lobe of the primary tumours as T3 To reclassify M1 tumors by additional nodule/s in another ipsilateral lobe as T4 To reclassify T4 tumors by malignant pleural effusion as M1a N No changes M To subclassify M1 in M1a: separated tumor nodule/s in the controlateral lung; tumor with pleural nodules or malignant pleural (or pericardial) effusion; and M1b: distant metastasis Take-home message Changes for the 7th Edition of the TNM classification of lung cancer Goldstraw P et al JTO, 2007
  • 4. Antonio ROSSI, MD Division of Medical Oncology, “S.G. MOSCATI” HOSPITAL, AVELLINO - ITALY Thank you for your kind attention But…
  • 5. Some of the aims for adopting a global standard are to: • Aid medical staff in staging the tumour helping to plan the treatment • Give an indication of prognosis • Assist in the evaluation of the results of treatment • Enable facilities around the world to collate information more productively TNM: Uses and Aims
  • 6. The history of Lung Cancer TNM • 1968: I ed. • 1974: II ed. (Mountain-proposal 1973) • 1978: III ed. (minimal changes) • 1987: IV ed. (Mountain-proposal – Chest 1986) • 1992: IV ed. rev. (no changes) • 1997: V ed. (last Mountain revision) • 2002: VI ed. (no changes) No.pts 2,155 3,753 5,319 Estimated 1.608.000 new cases of lung cancer worldwide with 1.380.000 the deaths in year 2008 (GLOBOCAN 2008) 5,319 = 0.00337% of 1.608.000 patients affected by lung cancer
  • 7. TNM6: Further Limitations  Patients who had undergone surgical treatment, not representative of the entire population of patients affected by lung cancer  Patients collected in only one geographic region …this is why we needed an updated staging system for Lung Cancer
  • 8.

  • 12. When comparing overall survival between groups of patients defined by tumor size, we found that survival differences were optimized at size cutpoints of 2, 3, 5, and 7 cm. These tumor size cutpoints were chosen on the basis of pathologic measurements from completely resected cases in the learning set and were then tested in the remaining pathologic and clinical data. T Descriptors Rami Porta T et al J Thorac Oncol 2007;2: 593–602 15,234 patients with sufficient pT descriptor information (M0)
  • 13. •T1 Tumour 3 cm or less in greatest dimension, surrounded by lung or visceral pleura, without bronchoscopic evidence of invasion more proximal than the lobar bronchus (i.e., not in the main bronchus) •T1a Tumour 2 cm or less in greatest dimension •T1b Tumour more than 2 cm but not more than 3 cm in greatest dimension TNM Clinical Classification T Descriptors

TNM Clinical Classification T Descriptors
  • 17. Rush V et al J Thorac Oncol 2009;4: 568–577 N Descriptors • Reconciled “Naruke” and “Mountain-Dresler” Nodal Chart • The anatomic limits of the nodal stations are clearly defined • The concept of “nodal zones” has been introduced incorporating adjacent stations into larger aggregates (need to be further validated) • Supraclavicular zone now includes the low cervical, supraclavicular and sternal notch nodes • Identification of mediastinal line on the left paratracheal level • Enlargement of subcarinal space 38,265 patients with sufficient pN descriptor information (M0)

  • 20. M Descriptors 6,596 patients with sufficient cM and /or pM information •MxMx Presence of distant metastasis cannot be assessed •M0M0 No distant metastasis •M1M1 Presence of distance metastasis •M1a: separate tumor nodule(s) in a controlateralM1a: separate tumor nodule(s) in a controlateral lobe and tumor with malignant pleurallobe and tumor with malignant pleural involvement, effusion or nodule(s), or malignantinvolvement, effusion or nodule(s), or malignant pericardial effusionpericardial effusion •M1b: distant metastasis outside lung/pleuraM1b: distant metastasis outside lung/pleura

  • 22. Overall survival by clinical stage TNM6 TNM7 Goldstraw P et al J Thorac Oncol 2007; 2:706–714 Survival by clinical stage according to the sixth edition of TNM and by the newly proposed TNM stage based on the entire set of cases available for reclassification
  • 23. Overall survival by pathologic stage TNM6 TNM7 Goldstraw P et al J Thorac Oncol 2007; 2:706–714 Survival by pathologic stage according to the sixth edition of TNM and by the newly proposed TNM stage based on the entire set of cases available for reclassification
  • 24. Proposed stage groupings Goldstraw P et al J Thorac Oncol 2007; 2:706–714 criticism
  • 25. • Database does not includes any data from Africa, SouthAfrica, South America or Indian subcontinentAmerica or Indian subcontinent • Under-represents cases from ChinaChina which is experiencing a rapid increase in lung cancer incidence and is the most populous country in the world • New TNM reflects more strongly prognosis than algorithm for treatment (i.e., stage IV with oligometastases and resectable primary lesion could receive a different treatment with respect to stage IV with multiple distant metastases) • New TNM does not offer information about biology and behaviour of the tumor; we are waiting for a better understanding of these aspects ...further Criticisms

  • 36. TNM7: To date application in clinical practice • Effective January 2010, the 7th editions of the American Joint Commission (AJCC) on Cancer and the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) Staging Manuals were published* • Since January 2010, 3 clinical trials concerning NSCLC therapy have been activated in our Division: • All trials were activated in the second half of 2009 • 1 Trial addressed to locally-advanced NSCLC (stage IIIA-IIIB) • 2 Trials addressed to advanced NSCLC (stage IIIB-IV) • No trials use TNM7 *Rusch VW et al J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2010
  • 37. TNM7: Final Comments • The IASLC Lung Cancer Staging System is the largest, validated, internationally recognized system to date (over 100.000 patients registered in 46 databases) • Challenges are mainly seen with T size stratification, multiple nodule recharacterization, and pleural effusion impact • These changes may define new strategies for surgical approaches as well as the use of adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapies • This classification is also reccomended for small cell lung cancer • Prospective database collection for the forthcoming 8th Edition to correct TNM7 biases • Trials will be needed to clarify appropriate treatment strategies
