Factors Contributing to the Increase in Cancer cases in HIV 4-fold increase in HIV/AIDS Population4-fold increase in HIV/AIDS Population Patients living longer and not dying of OIPatients living longer and not dying of OI Rising proportion of HIV pts > 50 yoRising proportion of HIV pts > 50 yo Cancer incidence increases with ageCancer incidence increases with age Greater and earlier start to smoking in HIVGreater and earlier start to smoking in HIV Increase in some CA incidence rate among HIVIncrease in some CA incidence rate among HIV –Lung (3X), anal (29X), liver (3X), HL (13X) –Suggests may be additional risk from HIV
Pathogenesis of Cancer in HIV Many are virally-induced cancers, but not allMany are virally-induced cancers, but not all Immune activation, immune dysregulation, inflammation and decreased immune surveillanceImmune activation, immune dysregulation, inflammation and decreased immune surveillance HIV may activate cellular genes or proto-oncogenes or inhibit tumor suppressor genesHIV may activate cellular genes or proto-oncogenes or inhibit tumor suppressor genes HIV induces genetic instability (e.g 6 fold higher number of MA in HIV lung CA over non-HIV) 1HIV induces genetic instability (e.g 6 fold higher number of MA in HIV lung CA over non-HIV) 1 Increase susceptibility to effects of carcinogensIncrease susceptibility to effects of carcinogens Endothelial/epithelial cell abnormalities induced or facilitated by HIV may allow for cancer developmentEndothelial/epithelial cell abnormalities induced or facilitated by HIV may allow for cancer development Population differences based on genetics and exposure to carcinogensPopulation differences based on genetics and exposure to carcinogens Wistuba Il, Pathogenesis of NADC: a review.

Outcomes of cancer in HIV With prolonged survival of HIV population and aging, more people will develop cancer, especially NADCs.With prolonged survival of HIV population and aging, more people will develop cancer, especially NADCs. HIV-infected cancer patients may have worse outcomes in some cancersHIV-infected cancer patients may have worse outcomes in some cancers –Late presentation, advanced stage –Poor access to care –Medical comorbidity, treatment toxicity Unclear if HIV has adverse impact on cancer behavior, immune control, cancer-free survivalUnclear if HIV has adverse impact on cancer behavior, immune control, cancer-free survival Limited data for guiding cancer treatment in HIV-infected peopleLimited data for guiding cancer treatment in HIV-infected people Biggar JAIDS 2005, Little J Clin Oncol 2008, Rengan Lancet Oncol 2012, Suneja AIDS 2013
Invasive cervical carcinomaInvasive cervical carcinoma –Considered an AIDS-defining condition –Leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide Anal cancer 1Anal cancer 1 –Not AIDS defining but very common and growing incidence Oral and Head/Neck cancer also HPV relatedOral and Head/Neck cancer also HPV related HPV involvement 1-2HPV involvement 1-2 –Both derive from precancerous lesions due to HPV –Most cancer causing strains: 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 45 –Repeated infections and infection with multiple HPV strains increase the risk of developing neoplasia –Cancer can be prevented with early diagnosis and vaccines 1 Phelps RM, et al.
