Epidemiology: Anal Cancer in Women

Represents 0.4% of all new cancer cases in the United States.Incidence is 1.8 per 100,000 persons overall, with 2 per 100,000 in women.Incidence has been rising 2.2%/year in men and women.It is estimated that 4,630 women in 2015 will be diagnosed with anal cancer in the United States, and 610 will die of their disease.

American Cancer Society, 2015


Human Papilloma Virus – HPV

Genome consists of a circular double-stranded DNA molecule of ~8000bp

HPV types differ by >10% in the LI gene sequence

199 different HPV types have been fully sequenced, and nearly all cluster into three genera: α-HPV, β-HPV, and




-HPV isolate from mucosal and genital lesions; β and


isolate from skin


Anal cancer and HPV

Distribution of HPV genotypes in the anus is more heterogeneous than in the cervix, and it has been demonstrated that a greater proportion are of low-risk HPV types

Most common non-oncogenic HPV-53 and -66

Most common oncogenic HPV-51, -52 and -16

Detection of anal HPV


s associated with:

a higher lifetime number of anal and vaginal sex partners

younger age at first anal intercourse

history of Chlamydia and




Types by histologic/genomic subtypes

Overall Distribution, Overall Prevalence of HPV among 2107 Young Adult Women from Costa Rica


Mechanism of HPV Infection

Progression of infection is similar to cervical cancer which occurs over 1 to 3 decades.

Persistent infectio


of the

same HPV type

leads to high-grade squamous intraepithelial anal lesions eventually resulting in anal



this similarity, cervical cancer is 4 times more common than anal cancer. This may be due to higher clearance rate in anal cancer.


Clearance of HPV anal infections

87% of anal HPV infections are cleared within the 1st yearRate of clearance of HPV from those with HPV anal infection: 9.2 per 100 woman-months with a median duration of 150 days. Slowest clearance were HPV-59 (350 days) and HPV-58 (252 days). Median clearance for HPV-16 and -18 were 123 and 212 days respectively.


Infect Dis. 2009; 48(5): 536


Sequential cervical and anal HPV infection

Acquisition of anal HPV infection increases significantly among women with a cervical HPV co-infection with 1 or more additional HPV typesRisk of incidental cervical HPV infection increases significantly among women with an anal HPV infection of 1 or more additional HPV types compared to women without a preceding anal HPV infection.Risk of acquisition of a new anal HPV infection increased 20-29% among women with an cervical co-infection with any HPV type

Cancer Risk based on HPV subtype

Relative Risk varied by phylogenetic speciesα3/α15 and α1/α8/α10 types are associated with a greater likelihood of infecting the anus among women with a preceding same-type infection at the cervix.Risk of cervical HPV infection following an anal HPV infection with a concordant genotype was 8.8 (95% CI: 6.4-12.2). α 9/α11 had a slightly higher probability than other HPV types

ADXS11-001 Lm-LLO Immunotherapy and Chemo/IMRT for Anal Cancer

Kimberly Perez, Howard Safran, Kara-Lynne Leonard, Thomas Dipetrillo, Nicholas Oldenburg, Adam Klipfel, Steven Schecter, Matthew Vrees, Leslie Roth, Nishit Shah, Lakshmi Rajdev, Kayla RosatiBrown UniversityOncology Group Research Consortium



HPV DNA is present in the majority of anal cancer ADXS11-0011 immunotherapy is a live attenuated Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) bioengineered to secrete an HPV-16 E7 protein fused with a truncated fragment of listeriolysin O (tLLO) tLLO is a virulence factor of Lm. It enables the bacterium to escape from the phagolysosome.Innate powerful immune response to Lm, especially to listeriolysin (tLLO). Unlike peptides or viruses, there is no immune tolerance or neutralizing antibodiesBiosafety level 1-2. No fecal, urine shedding or person-to-person transmission; vector cleared within 24 hours with antibiotics.


ADXS11-001 Is Taken Up By Antigen Presenting Cells (APC)

After infusion of

Lm-LLO immunotherapy, Lm are taken up by APC. Since listeriolysin can break through the phagolysosome, the fusion protein tLLO-E7 is free in the cytoplasm of APC and activate MHC class I and class II immune responsesHPV transformed tumors now “seen” as pathogen-infected and targeted by T-Cells

It is common for anal and cervical HPV infections to occur consecutively

The high degree of genotype-specific concordance indicates a common source of infection.

HPV+ anal carcinoma may be associated with an improved prognosis.

Due to the significant correlation between anal cancer and HPV, immunotherapy will be playing a larger role in therapeutic protocols.
