Cancer treatment has been transformed by the use of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that block immune inhibitory ligands CTLA-4 and PD-1, known as immune checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs). With these options for treatment of cancers that are resistant to conventional cancer therapies, the life expectancy of patients with melanoma, lung cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and other cancers, has shown significant improvement. However, according to the journal Diabetes, some patients experience adverse effects. One percent of patients treated with anti –PD-1 or –PD-L1 CPIs develop diabetes.08/22/2018

In this study, the medicinal properties of betulin from B. platyphylla var. japonica useful for cancer management were investigated. LC/MS analysis revealed that betulin is a main chemical component of the EtOH extract of B. platyphylla var. japonica bark, and betulin was isolated from EtOH extract using an LC/MS-guided isolation method. Its structure was identified with 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic data and LC/MS analysis and then compared to the previously reported spectroscopic and physical data. We first verified the cytotoxicity of betulin against three human lung adenocarcinoma cell lines, A549, H1264, and Calu-6, wi...

Conclusions: Early favorable signs of FDG-PET parameters may vary among diseases with immune checkpoint inhibitors. Mean FDG uptake was elevated in several immune-related organs at the early restaging scan. Among them, elevated FDG accumulation in thyroid might be a candidate sign of monitoring effectiveness of immunotherapy observed earlier than immune-related lymphadenopathy.

Authors: Buoninfante OA, Pilzecker B, Aslam MA, Zavrakidis I, van der Wiel R, van de Ven M, van den Berk PCM, Jacobs H Abstract DNA damage tolerance (DDT) enables replication to continue in the presence of a damaged template and constitutes a key step in DNA interstrand crosslink repair. In this way DDT minimizes replication stress inflicted by a wide range of endogenous and exogenous agents, and provides a critical first line defense against alkylating and platinating chemotherapeutics. Effective DDT strongly depends on damage-induced, site-specific PCNA-ubiquitination at Lysine (K) 164 by the E2/E3 complex (RAD6/...

Authors: Wang L, Li Q, Ye Z, Qiao B Abstract Renal carcinoma greatly threatens human health, but the involved molecular mechanisms are far from complete understanding. As a master oncogene driving the initiation of many other cancers, Pokemon has not been established to be associated with renal cancer. Our data revealed that Pokemon is highly expressed in renal carcinoma specimen and cell lines, compared with normal cells. The silencing of Pokemon suppressed the proliferation and invasion of renal cancer cells. Pokemon overexpression rendered normal cells with higher proliferation rates and invasiveness. Animal stu...
