The National Cancer Institute has opened a clinical trial using mesothelioma patients and their family members to explore predisposition to the cancer and potential solutions to negating it. The trial is a follow up to an earlier study of a genetic mutation that creates susceptibility to various cancers but a longer-than-normal survival with platinum-based chemotherapy treatment. “This is an important, long-term study that could have implications not only for a patient, but for family members, too,” Dr. Raffit Hassan, NCI senior investigator told The Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.com. “Progress can be m...

Cancers, Vol. 11, Pages 698: NECTIN4 (PVRL4) as Putative Therapeutic Target for a Specific Subtype of High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer—An Integrative Multi-Omics Approach Cancers doi: 10.3390/cancers11050698 Authors: Bekos Muqaku Dekan Horvat Polterauer Gerner Aust Pils In high grade serous ovarian cancer patients with peritoneal involvement and unfavorable outcome would benefit from targeted therapies. The aim of this study was to find a druggable target against peritoneal metastasis. We constructed a planar—scale free small world—co-association gene expression netwo...

ConclusionsOur findings showed that hAFMSCs have natural tumor tropism, and can release soluble factors in a cell culture, which cause an efficient anticancer effect. Thus, we can use hAFMSCs for complete anticancer therapy on SKOV3 cell line at cell culture condition and possibly in vivo in the near future.

ConclusionsThis is the largest GC study investigatingKRAS status and histological phenotype. We identified a relationship betweenKRASmut and mucinous phenotype. The high level of intratumour morphological heterogeneity could reflectKRASmut heterogeneity, which may explain the failure of anti-EGFR therapy in GC.

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Mahesh ShettyOnce a pelvic mass is identified on an ultrasound examination, the first step in the differential diagnostic work up is to determine its origin. Most lateral pelvic masses in women are ovarian in origin, and the distinction between ovarian and nonovarian mimics of ovarian cancer is critical for appropriate clinical and surgical management. Adnexal masses detected on ultrasound can be further characterized by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) when needed. Superior contrast resolution, multiplanar imaging, charact...

Compared with other cancer success stories, the disease historically has had a shortage of good news. Until recently, it hasn’t benefited from new treatments for decades.
