Certain iron supplements may influence the development of colon cancer

(Chalmers University of Technology) Two common iron compounds increase the formation of a known biomarker for cancer, according to a new study of cancer cells from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. The two compounds, ferric citrate and ferric EDTA, are often used in dietary supplements and as a food additive respectively, in worldwide markets including the USA and the EU.

Publication date: Available online 15 October 2018Source: Mechanisms of Ageing and DevelopmentAuthor(s): Kedar N Prasad, Stephen C BondyAbstractMany studies show that daily consumption of high-fiber diet is associated with a reduced risk of developing kidney stones, inflammatory disease, colon cancer and other malignancies, obesity, type II diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Dietary fibers are non-digestible polysaccharides that are composed of complex carbohydrates. Based on their relative solubility in water, dietary fibers can be divided into insoluble and soluble forms. An important property of insoluble fibers is t...

In conclusion, the present study demonstrated the feasibility of using the radiocobalt labeled anti‑EGFR affibody conjugate ZEGFR:2377 as an imaging agent for in vivo visualization of low EGFR‑expressing tumors, like PCa, and for monitoring of receptor occupancy during cetuximab therapy as well as the importance of optimal dosing in order to achieve higher sensitivity molecular imaging.

Downregulation of cyclooxygenase‑1 stimulates mitochondrial apoptosis through the NF‑κB signaling pathway in colorectal cancer cells. Oncol Rep. 2018 Oct 12;: Authors: Ding L, Gu H, Lan Z, Lei Q, Wang W, Ruan J, Yu M, Lin J, Cui Q Abstract The prognosis of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) remains poor owing to diagnosis typically occurring at advanced stages of the disease. The understanding of the molecular regulatory signatures of CRC may lead to the identification of biomarkers for the early detection, prevention and clinical intervention of CRC. Epidemiological studies have indicated...

AbstractThe precise detection of PD-1/PD-L1 biomarkers helps to predict the prognosis of corresponding immunotherapy.125I-labeled nivolumab targeting activated immune cells infiltrating the tumorous tissues was developed to evaluate the expression of PD-1 immune checkpoints. SPECT images indicated that125I –nivolumab preferentially targeted to tumor-surrounded immune cells. This radiotracer can dynamically and quantitatively characterize the in vivo expression of immune checkpoints for colorectal cancer, thereby potentially enabling the early screening of patients, monitoring the efficacy of treatme nt, and assessing...

So much of life depends upon timing. Sure, we plan, but we know how much of our life’s events are unplanned and unexpected. So often, our jobs and our mates — two of our most defining accomplishments — are the result of a chance encounter or a random act. Life does not reliably proceed in an orderly manner. This is often true in the medical profession. Here, physicians in our quest to seek out and squelch disease, often discover what would should have been left alone. For example, is discovering prostate cancer in an older man a true benefit if the tumor would have remained silent throughout the man&rsquo...
