Authors: Zhang H, Song Y, Yang C, Wu X Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a highly heterogeneous disease worldwide. Long non‑coding RNA (lncRNA) tumor suppressor candidate 7 (TUSC7) plays a crucial role in the development of several cancers. However, the role of TUSC7 in the tumorigenesis of CRC has not been explored. The TUSC7‑overexpressing CRC cell lines SW480 and CaCo‑2 were generated to investigate the effects of TUSC7 on the growth, migration, invasion and epithelial‑mesenchymal transition (EMT) of CRC cells. CCK‑8, wound‑healing and Transwell assays were used to evaluate CRC cell proliferation, ...

This study reports the synthesis and production of a relatively robust dual drug-loaded liposomal formulation by modified thin film hydration method which substantially entraps both the drugs. Even though there have been reports of the combinatorial regimen involving apigenin and 5-Flurouracil our study reports the optimal molar ratio for effective synergistic therapeutic application of this drug combination to alleviate colorectal cancer. The cytotoxicity and cellular effects of individual, combinatorial free drugs and their liposomal counterparts tested against two human colon cancer cell lines revealed significantly hig...

Moretti, Paulo E. da Costa, Ana C.S. Teodoro, Maytê S. Toledo, Arnold SternAbstractCancer development is closely related to chronic inflammation, which is associated with identifiable markers of tumor progression, such as uncontrolled cell proliferation, angiogenesis, genomic instability, chemotherapeutic resistance, and metastases. Redox processes mediated by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide (NO) within the inflammator...

Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...

Authors: Rezasoltani S, Dabiri H, Asadzadeh-Aghdaei H, Sepahi AA, Modarressi MH, Nazemalhosseini-Mojarad E Abstract Gut microbiota is the complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of humans and other animals, including insects. The relationship between gut microbiota and human health is mutualistic and altered bacterial compositions in fecal and mucosal specimens of colon in patients with cancer compared to healthy subjects were observed. Thereby, studying the gut microbiota, their interactions with the host and their alterations in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients could be helpful to di...

ICD is a prerequisite for induction of patient-specific protective immunity against tumor antigens. We hypothesize that the efficacy of Extracorporeal photochemotherapy (ECP) in initiating anti-lymphoma tumor specific immunity is traceable to its efficient induction of ICD in cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL) malignant cells following their lethal exposure to photoactivated 8-methoxysporalen (8-MOPA). We tested that premise in a standard animal ICD vaccination assay, in three murine solid tumor models (sB16-OVA melanoma, YUMMER melanoma and MC38 colon cancer).

Authors: Kim SE, Lee SJ, Cha JY, Yi SW, Kim TS, Cho IL, Kwak JY, Oh KH Abstract Colon cancer is very rarely accompanied by tumor thrombosis of the superior mesenteric vein (SMV). A 46-year-old patient had been diagnosed with SMV tumor thrombosis related to colon cancer without hepatic metastasis and underwent right hemicolectomy with SMV tumor thrombectomy. Tumor thrombosis was pathologically confirmed as metastatic colon cancer. There has been no recurrence for 12 months with 12 cycles of adjuvant-chemotherapy.
