Acquired ribosomopathies in leukemia and solid tumors.

Acquired ribosomopathies in leukemia and solid tumors. Hematology Am Soc Hematol Educ Program. 2017 Dec 08;2017(1):716-719 Authors: Vlachos A Abstract A mutation in the gene encoding the small subunit-associated ribosomal protein RPS19, leading to RPS19 haploinsufficiency, is one of the ribosomal protein gene defects responsible for the rare inherited bone marrow failure syndrome Diamond Blackfan anemia (DBA). Additional inherited and acquired defects in ribosomal proteins (RPs) continue to be identified and are the basis for a new class of diseases called the ribosomopathies. Acquired RPS14 haploinsufficiency has been found to be causative of the bone marrow failure found in 5q- myelodysplastic syndromes. Both under- and overexpression of RPs have also been implicated in several malignancies. This review will describe the somatic ribosomopathies that have been found to be associated with a variety of solid tumors as well as leukemia and will review cancers in which over- or underexpression of these proteins seem to be associated with outcome.

This study examined whether instrumented gait and balance could determine the magnitude of deterioration in motor-performance from chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN).MethodsWe recruited 84 adults with cancer (age = 71.1 ± 9.7 years old, BMI = 26.8 ± 6.2 kg/m2, gender = 56%female) and 57 age-matched non-cancer patients (age = 69.5 ± 9.8 years old, BMI = 27.1 ± 6.0 kg/m2, gender = 79%female). Based on clinical screening, the group with cancer was classified into two groups: participants with CIPN (CIPN+) and without CIPN (CIPN-). Gait ...

CONCLUSIONS: Saffron administration may provide some experimental evidence for the inhibitory effect of saffron on the proliferation of QGY-7703 cells, suggesting that saffron may have potential utility for the treatment of liver cancer. PMID: 30657284 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Fonseca, A.J. de MatosAbstractLymphoma is one of the most common neoplasms in dogs and it is one of the top five causes of cancer-related deaths, similar to human lymphoma. Companion animal epidemiological studies define dogs as sentinels of potential risk factors for human health, mainly due to shared environments, shorter disease latencies, and spontaneous disease. The aims of this study were to describe human and canine epidemiologic features of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) and their similar...

Altered ER-mitochondria contacts can deregulate Ca2+ homeostasis, phospholipid metabolism, mitochondrial morphology and dynamics. MAM represent both a hot spot in cancer onset and progression and an Achilles' heel of canc...

Inherited bone marrow failure (IBMF) syndromes are a group of disorders associated with insufficient production of hematopoietic cells and are characterized by a predisposition for malignancies including myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute leukemia (AML). A majority of these disorders including aplastic anemia (AA) and dyskeratosis congenita (DKC) are characterized by defects in telomere maintenance and excessively short telomeres. Studies have demonstrated an association between shortened telomeres, advanced disease and increased risk of developing blood cancers. Heterozygous mutations in the gene encoding the telome...

Inherited forms of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and myeloid or lymphoid leukemia have long been associated with several constitutional disorders in children. The first report on an inherited bone marrow failure syndrome (IBMFS) with high risk for the development of myeloid neoplasia (MN) dates back to exactly 90 years ago when the Swiss pediatrician Guido Fanconi described a series of patients with physical anomalies and pernicious anemia. Since then a number of additional IBMFS and inherited conditions with leukemia predisposition such as Down syndrome, Ras-pathway disorders or Li-Fraumeni syndrome and other hereditary ...

In this study, we tested a radiation-free conditioning regimen with a T-cell–depleted graft to eliminate radiation exposure and minimize early and late toxicities of transplant. Forty-five patients (median age, 8.2 years; range 4.3-44) with FA underwent HCT between June 2009 and May 2014. The preparative regimen included busulfan, cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, and rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin. Busulfan levels were monitored to avoid excess toxicity. All grafts were CD34-selected/T-cell–depleted using the CliniMacs CD34 columns (Miltenyi). Thirty-four patients (75.6%) with marrow failure and 11 (24.4%) with m...

Abstract Essential facts Haematological malignancies are a diverse group of cancers that affect the blood, bone marrow and lymphatic systems. The main categories are lymphoma, leukaemia, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes and myeloproliferative neoplasms. In addition, there are subtypes of lymphoma and leukaemia, as well as more rare haematological cancers that have their own categories. There are also borderline conditions such as aplastic anaemia and other non-malignant bone marrow failure syndromes. The charity Bloodwise says 38,000 people in Britain are diagnosed every year with blood cancer or a related disor...
