Lung cancer symptoms: Eight signs not usually associated with the deadly disease

LUNG cancer symptoms can easily mistaken for less serious health conditions, which is why the disease often isn ’t diagnosed until it’s reached later stages. Here are seven signs often overlooked or ignored.

This study aimed to investigate the effects of metastasis-associated 1 (MTA1) gene expression and gene silencing in human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells in vitro and on angiogenesis in tumor xenografts in vivo in nude mice. MATERIAL AND METHODS Human H460 and H1299 NSCLC cell lines underwent transfection with lentiviral transfer plasmids (lenti) and short-interfering RNA (si-RNA) and included a control group, a lenti-MTA1 group, a lenti-si-MTA1 group, a lenti control group, and a si-RNA control group. Quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was used to detect MTA1 gene expression af...

ConclusionsOur results suggest that GLRX inhibition enhances the effects of geftinib in EGFR-TKI-resistant NSCLC cells. Thus, GLRX may represent a therapeutic target for increasing the efficiency of gefitinib treatment.

In conclusion, SCLC CTCs express MMP-9 and a range of cathepsins for proteolysis and, aside from tissue degradation, these enzymes are involved in cell signaling, survival, and the chemoresistance of tumor cells.

Publication date: Available online 18 January 2019Source: Pathology - Research and PracticeAuthor(s): Ming-Jenn Chen, Yao-Chen Wang, De-Wei Wu, Chi-Yi Chen, Huei LeeAbstractSrc homology region 2 (SH2)-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase 2 (SHP2) is ubiquitously expressed in cytoplasmic localization, which in turn confers tumor malignancy and poor prognosis in various human cancers. YAP1 interacts with SHP2 to promote translocation of SHP2 to nucleus, which consequently promotes Wnt target activation. However, the oncogenic role of the nuclear localization of SHP2 in human cancers remains unclear. We hypothesized that n...

Since BM shortens overall survival and decreases the quality of life, early detection and treatment of BM are vital. While data are available for clinical risk factors of NSCLC with BM, histopathological factors are not well understood. Therefore, we evaluated the histopathological related factors which will help early ...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggested that familial risks for colon cancer were higher than risks for rectal cancer in families of patients with colorectal cancer and colon cancer. The relationships of lung cancer and nervous system cancer with colorectal cancer were site specific. The associations of colon and rectal cancers with lung cancer, myeloma, and cancer of unknown primary appeared not to point out known syndromes and may suggest involvement of a novel predisposition.

Authors: Chen ZQ, Huang LS, Zhu B Abstract Background: The correlation between tumor markers (TM) and TNM stage of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has not been widely reported. Methods: TM levels (CEA, CA125, CA15-3, CA19-9, CA72-4, CYFRA21-1, and SCC-Ag) in 424 cases of lung adenocarcinoma (LAC), 166 cases of lung squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC), and 103 cases of benign chest disease (BCD) were analyzed before treatment. Results: By Kendall's tau-b correlation analysis, CEA, CA125, CA15-3, CA19-9, CA72-4, CYFRA21-1, and SCC-Ag were correlated with T stage of LAC (r = 0.235, p

Publication date: March 2019Source: Pharmacological Research, Volume 141Author(s): Yafei Chen, Xiaoli Li, Rui Zhang, Yuhong Xia, Zhuo Shao, Zubing MeiAbstractStatin exposure has been reported to improve survival in several cancers. However, studies evaluating the association between statins and prognostic outcomes in patients with lung cancer are conflicting and heterogeneous. Pubmed, EMBASE and reference lists of included studies were searched to identify studies investigating the association between statin exposure and lung cancer prognosis. The primary outcome measure was overall survival (OS) and secondary ones include...
