ConclusionsOverexpression of JAB1 promoted the proliferation, migration, and invasion of ESCC cells, and was significantly associated with poor prognosis of ESCC patients. Therefore, JAB1 could be considered as a promising prognostic factor and a possible target for the specific therapy of ESCC.Key pointsIn this study, we found that JAB1 was highly overexpressed in cancer tissues, which could influence the malignant behavior of ESCC cells, and was significantly associated with poor prognosis of ESCC patients.

Conclusions: Our results indicated that MetS was associated with poor prognosis in ESCC patients, and the possible mechanism was related to changes in the tumor microenvironment. MetS and the six-lncRNA signature could also serve as independent risk factors with available clinical application value.

In this study, we observe that the expression of miR-574-5p is not only increased in human ESCC tissues but also remarkably increased in cell lines correlates with ZNF70. In vitro, we explored the role of miR-574-5p in ESCC progression via transfection of the miR-574-5p inhibitor into ECA-109 cells. The results show miR-574-5p serve as a tumor promoter regulating cells proliferation and apoptosis in ESCC through mitochondrial-mediated reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and MAPK pathways. Furthermore, ZNF70 has been proved to as a functional target for miR-574-5p to regulate cells poliferation and apoptosis. In summar...

Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-1104-5245In Europe at present, but also in 2040, 1 in 3 cancer-related deaths are expected to be caused by digestive cancers. Endoscopic technologies enable diagnosis, with relatively low invasiveness, of precancerous conditions and early cancers, thereby improving patient survival. Overall, endoscopy capacity must be adjusted to facilitate both effective screening programs and rigorous control of the quality assurance and surveillance systems required. 1 For average-risk populations, ESGE recommends the implementation of organized population-based screening programs for colorectal cancer, based...
