Conclusions: In conclusion, we demonstrated that dysregulated HIF-1 α/SRGN signaling promotes CRC progression and metastasis.SRGN may serve as a potential candidate therapeutic target for metastatic CRC.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;48:2429 –2440

Research dealing with early diagnosis and efficient treatment in colon cancer to improve patient's survival is still under investigation. Chemotherapeutic agent result in high systemic toxicity due to their non-specific actions on DNA repair and/or cell replication. Traditional medicine such as Lycopodium clavatum (LC) has been claimed to have therapeutic potentials against cancer. The present study focuses on targeted drug delivery of cationic liposomal nanoformulated LC (CL-LC) in colon cancer cells (HCT15) and comparing the efficacy with an anti-colon cancer drug, 7-ethyl-10-hydroxy-camptothecin (SN38) along with its na...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewDuring the past few years, several important clinical and molecular differences have been observed simply based on anatomic tumor location of colorectal cancer. With this review, we aimed to give an updated overview of the recent findings on tumor location as a surrogate of embryological, molecular, and clinical differences that have a direct impact on our daily clinical practice.Recent FindingsIncreasing evidence has demonstrated a role for the microbiota in shaping inflammatory environments and promoting CRC growth and spread, and now we know that bacterial phylotypes vary depending on the primar...

This study not only details efficient methods to identify discriminative LMIs for cancer screening but also provides an example of metabolic profiling for distinguishing PC from BTC. Furthermore, the two metabolites [LysoPC(16:0), LysoPC(20:4)] shown to discriminate these diseases are potentially useful when combined with other, previously identified protein or metabolic biomarkers for predictive, preventive and personalized medical approach.

ConclusionThese findings suggest an elevated cancer burden, particularly at certain sites, among individuals with diagnosed sleep apnea. Results should be interpreted with caution due to unmeasured confounders (e.g., BMI, diabetes).

CONCLUSIONS: Radiation therapy continues to be an integral component of the palliative armamentarium against painful metastases. Radiation oncologist, in conjunction with referral physicians, can tailor treatment plans to reflect the needs of a given patient. PMID: 30109789 [PubMed - in process]

This study aims to elucidate the effects of ethanol extracts of LT (ELT) relative to the role of Runt-related transcription factor- (Runx-) 2 in the invasive and metastatic potentials of mouse colon cancer to determine the underlying mechanisms involved. ELT was evaluated for the antimetastasis activity using CT-26 colon cancer using wound healing, transwell matrigel, and western blot analysis. We used Runx-2-specific siRNA to further determine the relationship between Runx-2 and matrix metalloprotease- (MMP-) 9 in the migration and invasion of CT-26 cells. Runx-2 was first demonstrated to be a transcription factor that pl...

ConclusionsCancer survivors treated with RT for childhood cancer have a higher prevalence of adenomatous polyps compared to the average-risk population. These findings support the early initiation of colonoscopy screening 10  years after radiation therapy, even in patients who have received RT doses below 30 Gy.
