Authors: Li WX, Sha RL, Bao JQ, Luan W, Su RL, Sun SR Abstract OBJECTIVE: Long noncoding RNA linc-ITGB1 (linc-ITGB1) was reported to serve as a tumor promoter in breast cancer (BC). However, the clinical significance of linc-ITGB1 has not been reported. The present study aimed to determine the relationship between linc-ITGB1 expression and clinicopathological features and survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS: qRT-PCR was used to quantify the expression levels of linc-ITGB1 in BC and adjacent non-cancerous breast tissues. The X2 test was performed to determine the associations between linc-ITGB expression and the clin...

CONCLUSION: According to our results, malignancy and chemotherapy will have an important effect on the immune system and cause negative response to HBV vaccination. Our results revealed the importance of passive immunity and screening for HBV infection in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Also more studies for better vaccination schedules in this group of patients are recommended. PMID: 28828339 [PubMed]

AbstractMolecular subtyping in breast cancer is recently emerging as an important determinant of treatment and outcomes, and triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) has been established as a distinct clinical entity with unique features and adverse outcomes. A retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained computerized breast cancer database was performed, and all the non-metastatic female breast cancer patients undergoing potentially curative multimodality treatment between 2005 and 2012 were included for analysis. Patients with incomplete information regarding ER, PR, and HER2/neu status were excluded. All the eligibl...

Authors: Pindiprolu SKSS, Krishnamurthy PT, Chintamaneni PK, Karri VVSR Abstract Breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs) are heterogeneous subpopulation of tumour initiating cells within breast tumours. They are spared even after chemotherapy and responsible for tumour relapse. Targeting BCSCs is, therefore, necessary to achieve radical cure in breast cancer. Despite the availability of agents targeting BCSCs, their clinical application is limited due to their off-target effects and bioavailability issues. Nanotechnology based drug carriers (nanocarriers) offer various advantages to deliver anti-BCSCs agents specifically ...

Cancer patients who opt for alternative therapy instead of conventional medicine significantly decrease their chances of survival, according to researchers at Yale School of Medicine. Although the popularity of alternative medicine continues to grow, a recent study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found survival rates significantly reduced for those who use it as first-line therapy. Conventional cancer treatments — chemotherapy, surgery and radiation — still produce a much better chance of survival. Mesothelioma was not included in the study, but the findings are relevant to this rare ...
