Melanoma (skin cancer) found to be easily prevented with low-cost Vitamin B-3

(Natural News) Researchers from the University of Sydney, Australia believe that nicotinamide (vitamin B3) can be used to prevent the incidence of melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. The study, published in Photodermatology, Photoimmunology, and Photomedicine, demonstrates the efficacy of vitamin B3 in reducing or even reversing DNA damage and inflammation caused by ultraviolet...

We describe how this can be accomplished with injection of single cell suspension of melanoma tumor cells into immune-deficient NOD-scid IL2Rγnull (NSG) mice. We also describe how tumor cells and immune cells can be co-injected, using Winn assay, and the possibility to use that method to study immune therapies for cancer.

Abstract Syngeneic mouse models enable us to study the interaction of the immune system with tumor cells during tumor development and metastasis. It further allows us to evaluate the efficacy of immunotherapies on the different stages of tumor growth and the metastatic process. Here we describe two syngeneic mouse models, a murine mammary carcinoma and a murine melanoma model, that are used to study metastasis. Metastases occur spontaneously in the murine mammary carcinoma. The presence and number of foci are evaluated by culturing the lung tissue in a colony formation assay. For the murine melanoma model, tumor c...

LM, Rodríguez JA Abstract Characteristics of melanoma cells have been deciphered by studies carried out in two dimensional cell cultures growing as adherent monolayers on the bottom of plastic flasks. Melanoma cells can be cultured with a considerable degree of success, and, depending on the further use of the cells obtained in the culture, methodologies have to be adjusted to obtain reliable results. Although there are many melanoma continuous cell lines, in vitro 2D and 3D melanoma primary cell culture may be a more useful model to investigate interactions between cancer cells and immune system, as well a...

This study demonstrated promising anticancer and antibacterial effects of Artemia salina egg extracts. Our results suggest that pure bioactive compounds obtained from Artemia salina eggs can provide new insights into the mechanisms of colon and skin cancer, as well as Pseudomonas aeruginosa inhibition.

Authors: Ávila-Román J, Talero E, de Los Reyes C, Zubía E, Motilva V, García-Mauriño S Abstract Oxylipins are metabolites derived from lipid peroxidation. The plant oxylipin methyl jasmonate (MJ) shows cytotoxic activity against cancer cell lines of various origins, with ATP-depletion being one of the mechanisms responsible for this effect. The cytotoxic activity of oxylipins (OXLs) isolated from the microalgae Chlamydomonas debaryana (13-HOTE) and Nannochloropsis gaditana (15-HEPE) was higher against UACC-62 (melanoma) than towards HT-29 (colon adenocarcinoma) cells. OXLs lowered...

In this study verteporfin (Ver), a second-generation photosensitizer, has been conjugated with mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs): the resulting Ver-MSNs are an efficient nanoplatforms used to enhance cargo capacity and cellular uptake. Our in vitro and in vivo studies investigated whether Ver-MSNs were able to reduce or inhibit melanoma growth. In vitro experiments performed using B16F10 mouse melanoma cells showed that Ver-MSNs stimulated by red light (693 nm) significantly decreased in vitro cells proliferation in a range of concentration between 0.1 μg/ml to 10 μg/ml. When Ver-MSNs (5 μg/ml in glyc...

AbstractCarriers of pathogenic variants inCDKN2A have a 70% life-time risk of developing melanoma and 15 –20% risk of developing pancreatic cancer (PC). In the Netherlands, a 19-bp deletion in exon 2 ofCDKN2A (p16-Leiden mutation) accounts for most hereditary melanoma cases. Clinical experience suggests variability in occurrence of melanoma and PC inp16-Leiden families. Thereby, the risk of developing cancer could be modified by both environmental and genetic contributors, suggesting that identification of genetic modifiers could improve patients ’ surveillance. In a recent genome-wide association study (GWAS),...

AbstractFew studies have investigated pricing and promotional practices used by the indoor tanning industry, despite their potential to promote indoor UV tanning —a well-established risk factor for melanoma skin cancer. Posing as potential customers, we telephoned 94 indoor tanning businesses in six United States (U.S.) cities and requested pricing information. The price of a single tanning session ranged from $0 to $23, and was lower at facilities that of fered indoor tanning as a secondary service (mean $4.82 and free in 35%) than at tanning salons (mean $16.45). Session prices in salons could be as low as $1.50 wi...
