Identification of Biomarker for Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma Using Microarray Data Analysis

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) is one of the most malignant tumors worldwide. We aimed to explore the molecular mechanism of this CSCC and screen feature genes that can function as the biomarker of CSCC and thus provide a theoretical basis for the pathogenesis research and development of medicine. The method of microarray data analysis was used in this study to explore the differentially expressed genes between tissues of normal specimens and tissues of patients with CSCC. Besides, functional enrichment analysis and signal pathway were performed on these genes to screen the feature genes that are closely associated with CSCC can function as the potential biomarkers of CSCC.A total of 53 samples from two datasets, GSE45216 and GSE45164, were used in the differentially expressed analysis. And as a result, a total of 833 genes were screened out, including 465 up-regulated genes and 215 down-regulated genes. Candidate genes, including up-regulated genes like S100A12, MMP1, DEFB4B/DEFB4A, KRT16 and PI3, and down-regulated genes like EGR3, LRP4, C14orf132, PAMR1, CCL27, and KRT2 were screened out. All these genes were testified in the dataset of GSE66359. The result showed that only three genes, KRT16, PI3 and EGR3, were mostly differentially expressed and only EGR3 had the same expression pattern with both datasets, GSE45216 and GSE45164.Of note, EGR3 gene was found to be the most differentially expressed gene in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, which had the potential...

ConclusionThese observations elucidated that upregulated miR-519 is closely correlated with the radiosensitivity of ESCC cells, which may contribute to finding a new promising target for improving the efficiency of radiotherapy in patients with ESCC.

The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of high-LET carbon ions and low-LET X-rays on the expression of VEGF and MMPs, and to identify the associated mechanisms in the Tca8113 TSCC cell line. Tca8113 cells were irradiated with carbon ions or X-rays at doses of 1 and 4 Gy. An immunofluorescence assay indicated that VEGF expression was notably decreased at 24 and 48 h after heavy ion irradiation compared with irradiation with conventional X-rays. The expression of MMP-2 and MMP-9 also decreased in a dose-dependent manner following heavy ion irradiation. These findings indicate that compared with low...

ConclusionsAge at diagnosis of temporal bone cancer is strongly associated with the prevalence of temporal bone cancer. We urge providers to consider subtypes of temporal bone cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma, when evaluating older adults with risk factors for temporal bone cancer and an abnormal physical exam.

In this study, the immunohistochemically measured expression of FAK, phosphorylated FAK (FAKpY397) and p16 expressions and their associations with clinicopathological features and 5-year survival rates were examined in surgical samples from 70 patients with primary OSCC. FAK and FAKpY397 were expressed at high levels in 42 cases (60.0%) and 34 cases (48.6%), respectively, and 9 cases (12.9%) were positive for p16. FAK expression was significantly correlated with local recurrence, subsequent metastasis, and the mode of invasion. FAKpY397 expression was significantly correlated with both N classification and the mode of inva...

ConclusionsThe combination of belinostat 2000  mg/m2 days 1 –5 and 13-cRA 100 mg/m2 days 1 –14, every 21 days, was well-tolerated and an MTD was not reached despite doubling the established single-agent MTD of belinostat.

This study investigates the performance of label-free, reflectance-based hyperspectral imaging (HSI) and autofluorescence imaging for SCC detection at the cancer margin in excised tissue specimens from 102 patients and uses fluorescent dyes for comparison. Fresh surgical specimens (n = 293) were collected during H and N SCC resections (n = 102). The tissue specimens were imaged with reflectance-based HSI and autofluorescence imaging and afterwards with two fluorescent dyes for comparison. A histopathological ground truth was made. Deep learning tools were developed to detect SCC with new patient samples (inter-patient) and...
