Abstract AimsNeoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) remains an important therapeutic option for advanced oesophageal cancer (OC). Pathological tumour regression grade (TRG) may offer additional information by directing adjuvant treatment and/or follow‐up but clinical value remains unclear. We analysed the prognostic value of TRG and associated pathological factors in OC patients enrolled in the Medical Research Council OE02 trial. MethodsHistopathology was reviewed in 497 resections from OE02 trial participants randomised to surgery (S‐group;n=244) or NAC followed by surgery (CS‐group;n=253). The association between TRG grou...

This study aimed at investigating the biological functions of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) hox transcript antisense intergenic RNA (HOTAIR) in resistant ovarian cancer cells, exploring the regulation effect of HOTAIR on HOXA7, and investigating their influence on the chemosensitivity of ovarian cancer cells. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was applied for the verification of HOTAIR expression in resistant and sensitive groups. How HOTAIR downregulation affected cell proliferation, migration and invasion, and apoptosis were determined using the MTT assay and the colony formation assay, the Trans...

Authors: Burris HA Abstract INTRODUCTION: The emergence of cyclin-dependent kinases 4 and 6 (CDK4/6) inhibitors marked a significant advancement in the treatment of advanced breast cancer. Ribociclib is an orally bioavailable, highly selective inhibitor of CDK4/6. In combination with various endocrine therapies, ribociclib has demonstrated clinical activity as a first-line therapy for patients with HR+, HER2- advanced breast cancer, without compromising the favorable toxicity profile associated with endocrine therapy. Thus, ribociclib is now considered a new standard of care for HR+, HER2- advanced breast cancer. A...
