Paraneoplastic Syndromes in Ophthalmology (French version of the article).

[Paraneoplastic Syndromes in Ophthalmology (French version of the article)]. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2018 Jun 09;: Authors: Bussat A, Langner-Lemercier S, Salmon A, Mouriaux F Abstract Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the visual system are a heterogeneous group of disorders occurring in the setting of systemic malignancy. Although these syndromes are rare, the clinical manifestations can herald an unsuspected, underlying malignancy. The associated antibodies and histopathology of each syndrome are presented to help in the understanding of these autoimmune phenomena. Outlined in this review article are diagnostic features useful in differentiating cancer-associated retinopathy, melanoma-associated retinopathy, paraneoplastic polymorphous vitelliform maculopathy, bilateral diffuse uveal melanocytic proliferation and paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes such as optic neuropathy, opsoclonus-myoclonus, Lambert-Eaton myasthenia and paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration.

Presently, surgery and radiation (with and without chemotherapy) are the major treatments for oral cancer; however it met with limited therapeutic outcome. Overcoming the multidrug resistance and finding new therapeutic agents for oral cancer treatment are some of the serious challenges. Small molecule, TH287 potently and selectively inhibits the MTH1 protein in cells and could act as a ne...

SangamwarAbstractThe concerns impeding the success of chemotherapy in cancer is descending efficacy of drugs due to the development of multiple drug resistance (MDR). The current efforts employed to overcome MDR have failed or are limited to only preliminary in-vitro investigations. Nanotechnology is at the forefront of the drug delivery research, playing pivotal role in chemotherapy and diagnosis, thereby providing innovative approaches for the managemen...

In this study, three undescribed cucurbitane-type triterpene glycosides furpyronecucurbitane A, goyaglycoside I and charantagenin F along with nine known compounds were isolated from the immature fruit of Momordica charantia L. Their structures were identified on the basis of extensive 1D, 2D NMR and HRESIMS spectroscopy analysis. All isolated compounds were examined for their anti-hepatic fibrosis activity against murine hepatic stellate cells (t-HSC/Cl-6) and anti-hepatoma activity against two kinds of liver cancer cell lines (HepG2 and Hep3B). Among them, karaviloside III exhibited excellent inhibitory activity against ...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for detecting the salivary metabolic changes associated with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Unstimulated whole-mouth saliva samples collected from HNSCC patients (primary tum...

In this study we investigated the apoptotic effect of butein and the underlying mechanisms in human cervical cancer cells. Two cell lines, C-33A and SiHa cells, were treated with butein at different dosages for different durations. The effect of butein on cell viability was assessed by MTT assay, which revealed that butein exerted cytotoxicity in both cervical cancer cells in a dose- and time-dependent fashion. Apoptotic pathway-related factors in the butein-treated cervical cancer cells were then examined. JC-1 flow cytometry, cytochrome c assay, and caspase activity assays demonstrated that butein disturbed mitochondrial...

Authors: Tanaka A, Sadahiro S, Suzuki T, Okada K, Saito G, Miyakita H Abstract Regorafenib and trifluridine/tipiracil (TAS-102) are novel antitumor agents for patients with refractory metastatic colorectal cancer. However, it is unclear which patients may derive a survival benefit from these drugs in real-life clinical practice. We evaluated retrospectively the efficacy and safety of regorafenib and TAS-102 at a single institution between June 2013 and November 2015. Cox regression analysis was carried out to obtain predictive scores (the nearest integers of hazard ratio) for survival benefit. Forty-four patients t...

Authors: Bussat A, Langner-Lemercier S, Salmon A, Mouriaux F Abstract Paraneoplastic syndromes involving the visual system are a heterogeneous group of disorders occurring in the setting of systemic malignancy. They are unrelated to local tumor invasion or metastasis and unexplained by nutritional, metabolic, infectious or iatrogenic causes. The presence of antibodies may aid in the diagnosis of a paraneoplastic syndrome, although this is not an absolute requirement. Chorioretinal involvement is seen in CAR (cancer-associated retinopathy) syndrome, MAR (melanoma-associated retinopathy) syndrome, paraneoplastic vite...
