Germline CDH1 mutations are a significant contributor to the high frequency of early-onset diffuse gastric cancer cases in New Zealand M āori

AbstractNew Zealand M āori have a considerably higher incidence of gastric cancer compared to non-Māori, and are one of the few populations worldwide with a higher prevalence of diffuse-type disease. Pathogenic germlineCDH1 mutations are causative of hereditary diffuse gastric cancer, a cancer predisposition syndrome primarily characterised by an extreme lifetime risk of developing diffuse gastric cancer. PathogenicCDH1 mutations are well described in M āori families in New Zealand. However, the contribution of these mutations to the high incidence of gastric cancer is unknown. We have used next-generation sequencing, Sanger sequencing, and Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification to examine germlineCDH1 in an unselected series of 94 M āori gastric cancer patients and 200 healthy matched controls. Overall, 18% of all cases, 34% of cases diagnosed with diffuse-type gastric cancer, and 67% of cases diagnosed aged less than 45 years carried pathogenicCDH1 mutations. After adjusting for the effect of screening known HDGC families, we estimate that 6% of all advanced gastric cancers and 13% of all advanced diffuse-type gastric cancers would carry germlineCDH1 mutations. Our results demonstrate that germlineCDH1 mutations are a significant contributor to the high frequency of diffuse gastric cancer in New Zealand M āori.

Authors: Yang JD, Ma L, Zhu Z Abstract We assessed the expression of Serpin Family E Member 1 (SERPINE1) and its prognostic values in gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC) by using the data from TCGA database. The biological functions of SERPINE1 in GAC cells were detected by cell counting Kit-8, colony-forming, Transwell, and wound-healing assays, appropriately. Relative mRNA and protein levels were detected by RT-qPCR and western blot. Bioinformatics analysis indicated that SERPINE1 was significantly up-regulated in GAC tissues compared to normal tissues. High SERPINE1 expression led to a short overall survival and could ...

Authors: Zhang Y, Tang M, Wang XG, Gu JH, Zhou LN, Jin J, Li P, Wang LQ, Chen MB Abstract BACKGROUND: interleukin-37 (IL-37) is as a natural suppressor of the innate inflammatory and immune responses. It has also been reported to be involved in carcinogenesis and metastasis. The present case-control study was designed to investigate the role of serum levels of IL-37 in patients with gastric cancer. METHODS: serum IL-37 levels were determined using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in 180 patients diagnosed with gastric cancer and 100 healthy controls. The association between IL-37 levels and clinical factor...

ConclusionThe results in our study represented that ROMO1 and OMA1 gene expressions in gastric cancer tissue have increased compared to that in healthy adjacent tissues, and oxidative stress levels have also increased significantly in relation to these proteins; therefore, these two proteins may be considered as an important cause of gastric cancer, and even introduced as tumor markers.

Authors: Flores-Pérez JA, de la Rosa Oliva F, Argenes Y, Meneses-Garcia A Abstract Cancer is a complex group of diseases where different signaling pathways have been found to be deregulated, mainly related to cell proliferation, angiogenesis, metastasis, evasion of apoptosis and insensitivity to anti-growth sings among others. Diet plays a fundamental role in the treatment of the oncological patients, we must be aware that food can interact with certain types of cancer therapy. On the other hand, cancer therapies sometimes affect the patient's sense of smell, taste, appetite, gastric capacity or nutrient abs...
