CDK7 inhibition as a promising therapeutic strategy for lung squamous cell carcinomas with a SOX2 amplification
ConclusionsFrom our data, we conclude that THZ1 may effectively control the proliferation and survival ofSOX2-amplified SCC cells through a decrease in global transcriptional activity, suggesting that CDK7 inhibition leading to transcription suppression may be a promising therapeutic option for lung SCC with aSOX2 amplification.
CONCLUSION: This observational study highlights that head and neck specialists are not aware of, and are consequently not complying with, routine human immunodeficiency virus testing as recommended by the British HIV Association guidelines. PMID: 31708001 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionHigh nodal FDG uptake increases the risk of N- and M-site recurrence in patients with OPSCC in a competing risk scenario. The reported results are available in an easy applicable online tool and can help identify relevant candidates for future trials testing treatment approaches.
In conclusion, our findings indicate that IL-4/STAT6 signaling in CD11b+ cells promotes lung cancer progression by triggering an IL-4 positive feedback loop and increasing M2 myeloid cells. STAT6 may be a new therapeutic target for the prevention and treatment of lung cancer.
This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of different generations of EGFR TKI therapy in ASC patients with sensitiveEGFR mutations.MethodsPatients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) diagnosed at the Shanghai Chest Hospital between January 2010 and December 2016 were retrospectively reviewed.ResultsA total of 10,037 NSCLC patients tested forEGFR mutations were screened, with primary ASC accounting for 1.4% (139/10,037). PositiveEGFR mutations were found in 51.1% (71/139) of ASC patients, including 67 sensitive mutations (19del or 21L858R) and four uncommon mutations (19del + 20T790M, 21L858R&thin...
ABSTRACT Carcinoma cuniculatum (CC), a rare variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma, presents well-differentiated neoplastic epithelial cells infiltrating the underlying submucosal or bone tissues, forming the so-called "rabbit burrows" filled with keratin. A 67-year-old female patient was referred complaining of a painless tumoral mass in the left mandibular body, with several months of evolution. Previous history indicated extraction of the teeth #37 and #38 and diagnosis of chronic suppurative osteomyelitis. A deep incisional biopsy revealed CC. Due to its microscopic features, suggesting an inflammatory or re...
ABSTRACT Squamous cell carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm that affects the structures and tissues of the oral cavity. Interleukins (IL) synthesized from a tumor modulate a cascade reaction that may influence the prognosis of the disease. We aim to investigate in the literature whether interleukins are mediators that negatively or positively influence the prognosis of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma. A systematic review study was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyzes (PRISMA) instructions. PubMed (including MedLine), Scopus, Web of Science, SciELO and Latin A...
CONCLUSION: Based on the results of Keynote-048, pembrolizumab ± chemotherapy gained FDA approval as first-line treatment for R/M-HNSCC in the USA. Approval in Europe is expected soon and will probably have a strong impact on clinical routine. PMID: 31701170 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion The association of routine video anoscopy during colonoscopy improved diagnosis of neoplastic anal lesions, allowed correct classification of the degree of hemorrhoidal disease, helped to confirm the bleeding site and detected other anal pathologies. The main findings were hemorrhoidal diseases, fissures and perianal fistulas. The study suggests that VA should be used in all colonoscopies.
