ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: ESMO COVID-19 and CAncer REgistry (ESMO-CoCARE) is an international collaborative registry-based, cohort study gathering real-world data from Europe, Asia/Oceania and Africa on the natural history, management and outcomes of patients with cancer infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). PATIENTS AND METHODS: ESMO-CoCARE captures information on patients with solid/haematological malignancies, diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Data collected since June 2020 include demographics, comorbidities, laboratory measurements, cancer characteristics, COVID-19 clinical features, management and outcome. Parameters influencing COVID-19 severity/recovery were investigated as well as factors associated with overall survival (OS) upon SARS-CoV-2 infection. RESULTS: This analysis includes 1626 patients from 20 countries (87% from 24 European, 7% from 5 North African, 6% from 8 Asian/Oceanian centres), with COVID-19 diagnosis from January 2020 to May 2021. Median age was 64 years, with 52% of female, 57% of cancer stage III/IV and 65% receiving active cancer treatment. Nearly 64% patients required hospitalization due to COVID-19 diagnosis, with 11% receiving intensive care. In multivariable analysis, male sex, older age, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≥2, body mass index (BMI) <25 kg/m2, presence of comorbidities, symptomatic disease, as well as haematological malignancies, active/progressive cancer, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) ≥6 and OnCovid Inflammatory Score ≤40 were associated with COVID-19 severity (i.e. severe/moderate disease requiring hospitalization). About 98% of patients with mild COVID-19 recovered, as opposed to 71% with severe/moderate disease. Advanced cancer stage was an additional adverse prognostic factor for recovery. At data cut-off, and with median follow-up of 3 months, the COVID-19-related death rate was 24.5% (297/1212), with 380 deaths recorded in total. Almost all factors associated with COVID-19 severity, except for BMI and NLR, were also predictive of inferior OS, along with smoking and non-Asian ethnicity. CONCLUSIONS: Selected patient and cancer characteristics related to sex, ethnicity, poor fitness, comorbidities, inflammation and active malignancy predict for severe/moderate disease and adverse outcomes from COVID-19 in patients with cancer.

ABSTRACT

The context marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, brought several challenges, in the field of education. Schools needed to reorganize themselves, to guarantee the service to students, in this context, technology was found as a solution to mediate this relationship. Studies that address this new perspective can already be found, however, at present, we draw attention to an angle that is sometimes tangential, which is the object of this research: the multiplicities, especially in the care of students with disabilities. Which prompts us to question: What methodologies and technological resources are being adopted by inclusive education teachers to ensure educational assistance. The study is characterized as exploratory and qualitative. Data collection was performed using the focus group technique. The collected data were analyzed using the Discursive Textual Analysis - ATD methodology. The survey results point out challenges, potentials, strategies and personal challenges.

ABSTRACT

Background: Cancer patients (pts) have higher risk of severe COVID-19 infection. However, observations are based on non-comparative retrospective studies. Evidence regarding vaccination in cancer pts is limited, but there is enough evidence to support COVID-19 vaccination, even under active treatment. Data on humoral and cellular immune response to antiviral vaccination in cancer pts are scarce. In pts receiving immunosuppressive therapies (IST) like chemotherapy and targeted therapies, seroconversion/protection rates are expected to be lower than general population, but not in pts receiving immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI). Serum antibodies against an infectious agent may be an immunity indicator. Methods: Prospective observational longitudinal study with the intent of evaluating the humoral response of cancer pts to COVID-19 vaccination. The study includes pts diagnosed in any stage, without or under active treatment, or survivors followed in Hospital Prof. Dr. Fernando Fonseca, in partnership with Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência. Pts are divided into 4 arms, independently of the vaccine: A – IST;B – ICI;C –Hormone therapy (HT);D – Cancer survivors. Recruitment started in March 2021, expecting at least 50 pts per arm. IgG, IgA and IgM anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies ELISA determination in 9 timepoints: before 1st dose and at the 3rd, 6th, 12th, 15th, 24th, 36th, 48th and 60th weeks post 1st dose. Side effects’ questionnaire will be implemented after 1st and 2nd doses. Results: Recruitment is ongoing and a total of 202 pts were enrolled, of which 178 pts have 3-weeks post 1st dose evaluated: 101 in arm A: 11 in B: 31 in C;and 35 in D.The mean age is 61.6 years, with 53.4% females. Regarding vaccines, 55 pts were submitted to ChAdOx1-S/nCoC-19, 5 to Ad26.COV2.S, 89 to BNT162b2 and 12 to mRNA-1273 vaccines. At 3 weeks, 33/97 pts (34%) in arm A, 2/11 pts (18%) in B, 14/28 pts (50%) in C and 15/35 pts (43%) in D already generated anti-spike IgG. Most common side effects were local inflammatory reaction (47%), generalized muscle pain (17%), fatigue (11%), and chills (10%). Conclusions: Efficacy and safety profiles of vaccines against COVID-19 infection in cancer pts is still unknown.This study hopes to assess differences in immunization between pts’ treatment profiles and duration profiles and safety profiles.

ABSTRACT

Background: At the height of the first wave of the SARS-COV-2 pandemic, ESMO mobilized to accelerate research for the understanding of COVID-19 in cancer patients (pts). ESMO CoCARE is an international collaborative registry-based, cohort study, gathering real-world data and information from healthcare professionals about the natural history, treatment and outcomes of COVID-19 in cancer pts. Methods: ESMO CoCARE captures information on pts with any solid or hematologic malignancy (including cancer survivors free of disease for ≥5 years) presenting with a COVID-19 diagnosis in any of the participating centers. Data collected since 06/2020 include demographics, cancer characteristics and status, co-morbidities, COVID-19 clinical features, course, management and outcome. Factors influencing COVID-19 severity (hospitalization +/- ICU support needed) and recovery are investigated using multivariable logistic regression with backward elimination method. The study is ongoing. Results: The current analysis includes 1551 registered pts (19 countries;87% pts from 23 European centers, 7% and 6% pts from 5 Northern African and 7 Asian centers), with COVID-19 diagnosis as of 11/03/2021. Median age was 64 years, with the majority female (52%), cancer stage III/IV (58%), and on active cancer treatment (60%). 65% had severe COVID-19 requiring hospitalization, with 11% receiving intensive care. In multivariable analysis, in addition to demographics (male gender, older age, other ethnicity than Caucasian, lower BMI), co-morbidities and symptomatic COVID-19, severe disease was associated to higher ECOG PS (Odds Ratio (OR)2 vs 0=5.9, OR1 vs 0=2.1), hematological malignancies (OR hemvs solid =2.0), and active/progressive cancer status (OR progressivevs no evidence of disease =1.6). 98% of pts with mild disease recovered, as opposed to only 70% of those with severe disease. Cancer stage was an additional prognostic factor for recovery (ORI/II vs IV =3.4). Conclusions: Demographic characteristics, type and status of cancer, and symptomatology of COVID-19 increase the probability of severe disease, while advanced cancer stage is also associated with the risk of death.
