Isolated breast metastasis from gastric cancer in a male patient.

Isolated breast metastasis from gastric cancer in a male patient. Clin J Gastroenterol. 2018 Jan 04;: Authors: Kubo H, Shimizu T, Sekido H, Matsuda G, Takeda K, Watanabe A, Sakamoto R, Yamamoto Y, Toyoda J, Niino H Abstract A 72-year-old man underwent total gastrectomy for gastric cancer (por2, T3, N2, Stage IIIA). Eleven courses of postoperative chemotherapy with TS-1 (tegafur/gimeracil/oteracil) were administered. Five months after surgery, the serum carcinoembryonic antigen value was slightly elevated. However, computed tomography did not reveal any metastatic lesions in other organs. Two years after surgery, the patient felt a mass in the left mammary. A 2-cm tumor was palpable in the central portion of the breast. Ultrasonography revealed a hypoechoic tumor, which was Class 3 on aspiration biopsy cytological examination. No mass was detected on positron emission tomography-computed tomography. The mammary gland tumor increased in size to 3 cm, and a core needle biopsy procedure was performed. Histological examination findings revealed breast metastasis of gastric cancer. No other recurrence was found, and radical mastectomy was performed 2 years and 5 months after gastrectomy. Immunohistological analysis of the resected material confirmed breast metastasis of the gastric cancer. Two courses of TS-1 + cisplatin were administered, but this treatment was subsequently terminated because the patient experienced Grade 3 diarrhea a...

Publication date: Available online 17 February 2018 Source:Journal of Cancer Policy Author(s): Tingting Xu, Jing Wu Cancer is not only a medical problem, but also a socio-economical issue as the high prevalence with poor prognosis brings heavy financial burden to the society. From 2005 to 2013, the incidence and mortality rates have sharply increased in China. The most common types of cancer in males in China are lung cancer, gastric cancer, liver cancer, colorectal cancer and esophageal cancer while breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, and cervical cancer are the major types of cancer among Chin...

Association between Twist and multidrug resistance gene-associated proteins in Taxol®-resistant MCF-7 cells and a 293 cell model of Twist overexpression. Oncol Lett. 2018 Jan;15(1):1058-1066 Authors: Wang L, Tan RZ, Zhang ZX, Yin R, Zhang YL, Cui WJ, He T Abstract Multidrug resistance (MDR) severely limits the effectiveness of chemotherapy. Previous studies have identified Twist as a key factor of acquired MDR in breast, gastric and prostate cancer. However, the underlying mechanisms of action of Twist in MDR remain unclear. In the present study, the expression levels of MDR-associated proteins, in...

By BISHAL GYAWALI, MD Why conduct post approval studies at all? Atezolizumab previously received accelerated approval in second-line metastatic or advanced urothelial cancer based on response rates from a single arm trial. The results of post approval confirmatory phase 3 are now published and demonstrate that atezolizumab did not improve survival versus chemotherapy (11.1 v 10.6 months, HR 0.87, p = 0.41). The concept of accelerated approval is to grant early and conditional approval and access to drugs in diseases of unmet need, and that the decision to fully approve or revoke be made based ...

Excerpted fromPrecision Medicine and the Reinvention of Human DiseaseDespite having the most advanced healthcare technology on the planet, life expectancy in the United States is not particularly high. Citizens from most of the European countries and the highly industrialized Asian countries enjoy longer life expectancies than the United States. According to the World Health Organization, the United States ranks 31st among nations, trailing behind Greece, Chile, and Costa Rica, and barely edging out Cuba [42]. Similar rankings are reported by the US Central Intelligence Agency [43]. These findings lead us to infer that acc...

Abstract PD0332991 (palbociclib/Ibrance®) is a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK)4/6 inhibitor that has recently been approved for the treatment of estrogen receptor‑positive advanced breast cancer. The present study investigated the antiproliferative effects of PD0332991 on gastric cancer (GC) cells and the underlying molecular mechanisms. The activity of PD0332991 was tested in several GC cell lines, including AGS, KATO‑Ⅲ, NCI‑N87 and HS746T. Growth inhibitory activity of PD0332991, alone or in combination with fluorouracil (5‑FU), was measured by MTT assay. The effects of PD0332991 on cell cycle p...

CONCLUSIONS: Well-designed and well-conducted RCTs have shown no beneficial effect of selenium supplements in reducing cancer risk (high certainty of evidence). Some RCTs have raised concerns by reporting a higher incidence of high-grade prostate cancer and type 2 diabetes in participants with selenium supplementation. No clear evidence of an influence of baseline participant selenium status on outcomes has emerged in these studies.Observational longitudinal studies have shown an inverse association between selenium exposure and risk of some cancer types, but null and direct relations have also been reported, and no system...

Conclusions: Our meta-analysis suggests that the rs11614913 most likely contributes to decreased susceptibility to cancer, especially in Asians and colorectal cancer and gastric cancer, and that the rs3746444 may increase risk for cancer. Furthermore, more well-designed studies with large sample size are still necessary to further elucidate the association between polymorphisms and different kinds of cancers risk.

We do regularly try to detect some cancers early through mammograms, colonoscopies, and PSA tests. I think most of us (meaning the general public) are comfortable with these tests as we age. But what if there was a genetic test available which you could have done regularly, every few years or whatever time frame, to test you for several different cancers before they had a chance to spread.A new test,CancerSEEK, has been tested on more than 1000 patients and seems very hopeful." The CancerSEEK test looks for mutations in 16 genes that regularly arise in cancer and eight proteins that are often released.It was trialled ...
