Emerging evidence indicates that cytoprotective antioxidation is involved in drug resistance of various cancers; however, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain obscure. Here, we demonstrated that atypical protein kinase Cι (aPKCι) mediated reactive oxygen species (ROS) ...

Authors: Qi Y, Ding Z, Yao Y, Ma D, Ren F, Yang H, Chen A Abstract Ovarian cancer is one of the main causes of cancer-associated mortality across the world. Currently, ovarian cancer is mainly treated with chemotherapy. However, ovarian cancer is detected at advanced stages and chemotherapy has numerous side effects. In addition, the results of current chemotherapy on the treatment of ovarian cancer are less than satisfactory. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop novel and more viable chemotherapeutic agents that can be used to treat ovarian cancer. The present study was designed to synthesize a series of ...

We report a case of a 68-year old woman with recurrent uterine serous adenocarcinoma who underwent molecular testing and genetic sequencing of her tumor. She was found to have focal amplification of ERBB2 confirmed by amplification and overexpression of HER2/neu via fluorescence in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry. Given the identification of this potential target and progression of disease, trastuzumab was added to the patient's chemotherapy regimen with ultimate complete response.

AbstractPurposeWe sought to identify trends over time with respect to the use of hypofractionated whole breast irradiation (HF-WBI) in women with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) in the national cancer database (NCDB).MethodsTrends in utilization of HF-WBI in women diagnosed with T1-2N0 TNBC in the NCDB between 2008 and 2013 were analyzed. Case-matched luminal A women were used for comparison. Variables included age, race, year of diagnosis, insurance status, income quartile, receipt of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and institution (academic vs. community). Chi square, logistic regression, and multivariate analysis was per...
