Authors: Feng Z, Feng Z, Han J, Cheng W, Su B, Mo J, Feng X, Feng S, Chen G, Huang P, Huang L, Cui Z Abstract Shenling Baizhu additive powder (SLBZ-AP), a formulation of a variety of natural medicinal plants, has clinical efficacy in treating cancers in previous studies. We explored the effect of SLBZ-AP in bone metastasis of lung cancer (BMLC) mice, and the possible mechanism involved was further investigated in the present study. Mice model of BMLC was made and treated with SLBZ-AP. Pain behavioral tests were performed to explore the effect on BMLC-induced pain in mice. TUNEL staining was used to investigate apop...

AbstractLung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) is the top prevalent histological kind of lung cancer worldwide. Recent evidences have demonstrated that Sauchinone plays an anticancer role in tumor cell invasion and migration. Therefore, we performed this investigation to explain the potential role of Sauchinone in LUAD as well as the potential mechanism involved. Cell counting kit 8 (CCK-8) and transwell experiments were implemented to measure the proliferative, invasive and migratory abilities of LUAD cells. qRT-PCR and Western blot were performed to detect the transfection efficiency of si-EIF4EBP1s. Additionally, Western blot was a...

Abstract PURPOSE: Few studies have investigated the relationship between vitiligo and risks of various types of cancers, especially those other than skin cancer. Conventional observational studies are susceptible to potential confounders and inverse causation. With a Mendelian randomization approach, we were able to evaluate the causality between vitiligo and different cancer risks. METHODS: 37 vitiligo-related single-nucleotide polymorphisms identified by the published genome-wide association studies were used as instrumental variables in our study. Summary data of individual-level genetic information were o...

CONCLUSIONS: HER2Bi- or EGFRBi-armed CART19 exhibited specific cytotoxicity against multiple HER2+/EGFR+/CD19- tumor targets in overnight and long-term serial killing assays. CART19 showed improved survival and were resistant to exhaustion after prolonged repeated exposure to tumor cells. PMID: 32449004 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]

Conclusions: We conclude that NRP1 promotes radiation-induced EMT in lung adenocarcinoma cells via TGF-β1/Smad signaling and not non-classical Smad signaling, and enhances the invasion and migration of lung adenocarcinoma cells. PMID: 32659143 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we show that high miR-708 expression is associated with survival rates in lung squamous cell carcinoma patients. miR-708 also represses PGE2 production by suppressing both COX-2 and mPGES-1 expression in lung cancer cells. miR-708 regulation of COX-2 and mPGES-1 is mediated through targeting of their 3' untranslated regions (UTRs). Moreover, miR-708 decreases proliferation, survival, and migration of lung cancer cells, which can be partially attributed to miR-708's inhibition of PGE2 signaling. Lastly, we identify novel miR-708 predicted targets and possible regulators of miR-708 expression in lung cancer. C...
