CONCLUSION: A favorable response of HER2-positive salivary gland carcinomas to an antibody-drug conjugate could be shown. Furthermore, no convincing data regarding response to programmed cell death protein 1 (PD1)/programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) inhibitors in advanced salivary gland cancer were presented. Further studies and ideas for new treatment approaches will be needed to improve the therapeutic options for patients with salivary gland carcinoma. PMID: 31628530 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract While antibody libraries are traditionally screened in phage, bacterial, or yeast display formats, they are produced in large scale for pharmaceutical and commercial use in mammalian cell lines. The simpler organisms used for screening have significantly different folding and glycosylation machinery than mammalian cells; consequently, clones resulting from these libraries may require further optimization for mammalian cell expression. To streamline the antibody discovery process, we developed a Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell-based selection system that allows for long-term display of antibody Fab fragme...

As part of a multi-institutional study by the National Hospital Organization, we conducted an investigation to examine these molecular markers, using cytological specimens as a...

ConclusionsPredictive markers displayed a yearly similar distribution in breast cancer cases independently of grading or of intrinsic subtypes. These results point to a qualitative high performance of predictive marker assessment in breast cancer, corresponding to expected on average positivity rate per marker and per year. It is recommended to monitor positivity rate of ER, PR, Ki67 and Her2 yearly or periodically to comply with quality assurance requirements.

In this study, the relationship between the genetic profile of 87 female dogs (i.e. single nucleotide polymorphisms [SNPs] in genes known to be involved in mammary carcinogenesis) and the histological type and grade of malignant mammary tumours was assessed. The results demonstrated a significant relationship between genetic variation in genes RAD51, BRCA2, CHEK2, HER2, CDH1, COMT and PGR and these morphological features of the mammary lesions. Specifically, SNPs in RAD51 (rs23623251 and rs23642734), CHEK2 (rs397511718), HER2 (rs24537329) and PGR (rs8875007) were related to aggressive histotypes, with moderate to high hist...

ConclusionsAgreement between MS and surrogate classifications was generally poor. However, a post hoc analysis showed that a combination of HG and Ki67 could identify patients very likely to have Luminal A tumours according to MS.

ConclusionsmTOR signaling is highly activated in TNBC tumors. As single rapalog treatment is insufficient to block mTOR signaling in rapalog-resistant TNBC cells, our results thus provide a potential multi-kinase inhibitor combinatorial strategy to overcome mTOR-targeted therapy resistance in TNBC cells.
