Abstract Currently, chemoradiation is the most widely used nonsurgical treatment for esophageal cancer. However, some patients, particularly the very elderly or those with severe vital organ dysfunction, face difficulty with the chemotherapy component. We therefore examined the outcome of radiation therapy (RT) alone for patients with esophageal cancer at our facility. Between January 2005 and December 2014, 84 patients underwent RT at our hospital, and 78 of these patients received concomitant chemotherapy. The remaining 6 patients underwent RT alone; these patients were considered to be high-risk and to have no lymph node metastasis (stage I). Five of them received irradiation up to a curative dose: 4 showed a complete response (CR) and 1 showed a partial response (PR). Of the patients exhibiting CR, 3 are currently living recurrence-free, whereas 1 patient underwent endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) as salvage therapy for local recurrence, with no subsequent recurrence. High-risk stage I esophageal cancer patients can be treated radically with RT alone under certain conditions. In the future, to broaden the indications for RT monotherapy to include some degree of advanced cancers, a novel concurrent therapy should be identified.

Abstract Autophagy is a catabolic process that produces energy through lysosomal degradation of intracellular organelles. Autophagy functions as a cytoprotective factor under physiological conditions such as nutrient deprivation, hypoxia, and interruption of growth factors. On the other hand, infection with pathogenic viruses and bacteria also induces autophagy in infected cells. Oncolytic virotherapy with replication-competent viruses is thus a promising strategy to induce tumor-specific cell death. Oncolytic adenoviruses induce autophagy and subsequently contribute to cell death rather than cell survival in tumor cells. We previously developed a telomerase-specific replication-competent oncolytic adenovirus, OBP-301, which induces cell lysis in tumor cells with telomerase activities. OBP-301-mediated cytopathic activity is significantly associated with induction of autophagy biomarkers. In this review, we focus on the tumor-suppressive role and molecular basis of autophagic machinery induced by oncolytic adenoviruses. Addition of tumor-specific promoters and modification of the fiber knob of adenoviruses supports the oncolytic adenovirus-mediated autophagic cell death. Autophagy is cooperatively regulated by the E1-dependent activation pathway, E4-dependent inhibitory pathway, and microRNA-dependent fine-tuning. Thus, future exploration of the functional role and molecular mechanisms underlying oncolytic adenovirus-induced autophagy would provide novel insights and improve the therapeutic potential of oncolytic adenoviruses.
