Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) is a minimally invasive anticancer therapy involving a chemical sonosensitizer and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). SDT enables the reduction of drug dose and HIFU irradiation power compared to those of conventional monotherapies. In our previous study, mouse models of colon and pancreatic cancer were used to confirm the effectiveness of SDT vs. drug-only or HIFU-only therapy. To validate its usefulness, we performed a clinical trial of SDT using an anticancer micelle (NC-6300) and our HIFU system in four pet dogs with spontaneous tumors, including chondrosarcoma, osteosarcoma, hepatocell...

Authors: Wu Z, Huang W, Chen Y, Chen B, Liu R, Bai P, Xing J Abstract LINC01638 lncRNA is known as an oncogenic lncRNA in triple negative breast cancer. However, the role of LINC01638 lncRNA in other diseases is unknown. In the present study we observed that plasma levels of LINC01638 lncRNA and Notch1 were upregulated in prostate carcinoma patients comparing with healthy controls. LINC01638 lncRNA and Notch1 were positively correlated in prostate carcinoma patients but not in healthy controls. Upregulation of LINC01638 lncRNA distinguished prostate carcinoma patients from healthy controls. LINC01638 lncRNA overexp...

AbstractObjectivesAndrogen deprivation therapy (ADT) use in prostate cancer (PCa) patients has been reported to have an association with rheumatoid arthritis. We aimed to assess the impact of ADT on the subsequent risk of tenosynovitis.MethodsUsing data from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan between 2001 and 2013, 3309 patients with PCa were identified. Among them, 729 ADT patients comprised the study group with 729 matched non-ADT controls. We used a 1:1 propensity score matched analysis. The demographic characteristics and comorbidities of the patients were analyzed; Cox proportional hazards regre...

Authors: Gallicchio R, Mastrangelo PA, Nardelli A, Mainenti PP, Colasurdo AP, Landriscina M, Guglielmi G, Storto G Abstract Radium-223 dichloride (223Ra) is the first, recently approved, α-particle-emitting radiopharmaceutical for the treatment of patients with bone metastases in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and no evidence of visceral metastases. We explored MEDLINE, relevant congresses, and websites for data on 223Ra and prostate cancer therapies, focusing on therapeutic strategies and timing, bone metastases, and diagnostic assessment. 223Ra represents the only bone-targeting agent that has ...
