Overview Cardiovascular disease is the number two killer of cancer survivors 108 million baby boomers will enter healthcare industry by 2015 By 2015 over 15 Million U.S. cancer survivors –Many definitions of a cancer survivor –Cardiologist viewpoint: survivorship starts at time of diagnosis (Dr.Fitzhugh)
Overview Cancer treatment has shifted to targeted therapies, with more than 30 new agents in the past five years –Life-saving drugs and cardiology approach should support use; not interrupt use –Limited randomized controlled trials on prevention of cardiotoxicity –Treatment is based on prevention, early detection, prevention of progression heart failure

CAD or history of MI Hypertension Diabetes Alcoholism Cardiotoxic drugs Inherited cardiomyopathies Sleep apnea Valvular heart disease Congenital heart defects Other: –Obesity –Age –Reduced or falling vital capacity –Smoking –High of low hematocrit level Risk Factors for Heart Failure
New Hypothesis Doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity is mediated by Top2 Two different Top2: and Doxorubicin poisons both Top2 and Top2 . Proliferating cells express Top2 . However, the adult heart only expresses Top2 .

Cancer patients: risks for prolonged QTc. ECGPercentReference Prolonged QTc10.6% Barbey et al 2003 Borderline or prolonged QTc 15% Vaterasian, et al any ECG anomaly36% Barbey et al 2003 molecularly targeted agents with QTc adjuvant regimens, long treatment periods survival emphasis toxicity reduction
WHEN TO WORRY ABOUT QT? More than 25% prolongation of QTc interval from the baseline or a QTc interval longer than 500 ms increases the risk of precipitation of drug-induced torsade de pointes More than 90% of incidences of drug-induced torsade de pointes occur with QTc values of more than 500 ms Bednar MM et al. Am. J. Cardiol 2002;89:1316–1319 Gowda RM et al. Int J Cardiol 2004;96:1-6
TREATMENT Discontinuation of the offending agent: Any offending agent should be withdrawn. Predisposing conditions such as hypokalemia, hypomagnesaemia, and bradycardia should be identified and corrected. (>90% of time, we just stop supportive cast of medications)
PROGNOSIS Because Long QT interval is primarily an electrical disorder, in the absence of structural heart disease and LV dysfunction, the long-term prognosis is good as long as the offending agents and risk factors are corrected and arrhythmia is controlled.
Things to Consider More than 500 known tyrosine kinases from Human Genome Project –Over 250 of these tyrosine kinases are cloned, and expressed –7 Tyrosine kinases are FDA approved –4 Tyrosine kinases targeted (17 kinases in vivo) –How many kinases in the human genome are cardiac specific?
Kinase-binding profiles of the ABL inhibitors imatinib (upper panel), dasatinib (middle panel), and bosutinib (bottom panel) across a set of protein kinases simultaneously identified from K562 cells. The bars indicate the IC 50 values, defined as the concentration of drug at which half-maximal competition of kinobead binding is observed.

Conclusions Cardiologists and oncologists must collaborate Exciting new cancer therapies are being discovered, however, in order to maximize their potential, cardiac toxicities need to be identified and addressed upfront Although recent clinical experience has shown significant cardiotoxicity post-trial with cancer therapies, we have also seen resolution of toxicity using evidence-based cardiology guidelines (beta blockers need further study) More collaborative work with biomarkers/cardiac imaging for early detection and treatment
