Canonical Wnt pathway gene expression and their clinical correlation in oral squamous cell carcinoma

Conclusion: Wnt3A, β-catenin, and cyclin D1 are recognized as key components of Wnt/β-catenin signaling. However, in this study, there was no significant expression of all the three genes in OSCC. The proto-oncogene c-MYC showed statistically significant upregulation in cancer tissue samples suggesting that the OSCC among South Indian population is primarily not mediated by the canonical Wnt signaling pathway.

In conclusion we suggest that COX2, -765, -1195 polymorphisms appear to be an important predictive factor and may be a prognostic biomarker for risk of OSCC. Further investigations with larger study groups are needed to fully elucidate the role of COX2 -765, -1195 variations in the development of OSCC. PMID: 30511628 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPurposeThe phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is the frequently altered in human cancer. This has led to the development and study of novel PI3K inhibitors for targeted therapy and also to overcome resistance to radiotherapy.MethodThe anti-tumour effects of PI3K inhibitors (PI-828, PI-103 and PX-866) in terms of cell proliferation, colony formation, induction of apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, invasion, autophagy, and pNF- κB/p65 translocation in SCC-4, SCC-9 and SCC-25 cells were studied by performing MTT, clonogenic, DAPI staining, propidium iodide staining, annexin-V binding, matrigel invasion, acridin...

In this study, we have evaluated the inflammatory infiltrate cell content and correlated with the vascular density in patients affected by primary oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) from previous healthy controls and OSCC after cGVHD. Results have demonstrated that patients with OSCC after GVHD show a more consistent inflammatory infiltrate as compared with the OSCC ones. In detail, the inflammatory background composed of CD3-positive T cells, tryptase-positive mast cells, CD31-positive endothelial cells, and CD68-positive macrophages may be more pronounced in the setting of GVHD + OSCC than in the control group. By contr...

Conclusions: Determination of solCD44 level in saliva and serum can be a useful method for diagnosis the person’s involvement with cancer cells and the cancer in the early stages. But according to the controversial outcomes of past studies, larger and more accurate studies are needed in groups with more cases of oral cancer. PMID: 30485941 [PubMed - in process]
