miR‑671‑3p is downregulated in non‑small cell lung cancer and inhibits cancer progression by directly targeting CCND2. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Jan 15;: Authors: Yao Y, Zhou Y, Fu X Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are implicated in the development and progression of non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A previous study suggested that miR‑671‑3p suppresses the development of breast cancer. However, the role of miR‑671‑3p in NSCLC remains largely unknown. In the present study, it was identified that miR‑671‑3p was significantly upregulated in NSCLC tissues compared with adjacent normal tissues by...

Conclusions: Our results firstly indentified that high levels of MEOX1 especially nuclear staining was an independent prognostic factor for NSCLC, and it served a essential roles in the regulation of cell proliferation and colony formation in vitro. It may represent a potential target for the NSCLC treatment. PMID: 30662330 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsEven if SFITGv6 demonstrates excellent affinity and specificity for αvβ6 integrin-expressing NSCLC cell lines and several NSCLC xenografts [18F]FDG-PET/CT provides an advantage over [68Ga]SFITGv6-PET/CT for the diagnosis of NSCLC patients.

ConclusionHealthy donor-derived DNTs can target NSCLC in vitro and in vivo. DNTs recognize tumors via innate receptors which can be up-regulated by IL-15. DNTs have the potential to be used as a novel adoptive cell therapy for lung cancer either alone or in combination with IL-15.

In lung cancer, several potential mechanisms of intrinsic and acquired resistance to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have been explored, including mesenchymal-epithelial transition factor (MET) signaling pathway activation. On the other hand, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production of EGFR-mutated lung cancer cells is stimulated by predominantly activated MET signaling pathway. Therefore, the inhibition of VEGF axis as the downstream target of MET signaling pathway seems promising. Here, for the first time, we report the potential efficacy of combination therapy with b...
