27-year-old woman who was 'too young for cancer' survived a stage three tumor

Emily Piercell was just 27 when she found a lump in her breast in 2015. Doctors said it couldn't be cancer, until the Ontario, Canada native convinced them to biopsy the stage three tumor.

Authors: Fei Z, Deng Z, Zhou L, Li K, Xia X, Xie R Abstract Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) is a malignant epithelial carcinoma of the head and neck. Cancer therapy targeting programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) or programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) is of revolutionary. However, the tumorigenic mechanism of PD-L1 was not yet clear in NPC. Here we demonstrated an oncogenic role of PD-L1 via activating PI3K/AKT in NPC cells. PD-L1 overexpression was frequently detected in NPC biopsies and cell lines by qRT-PCR. PD-L1 overexpression and knockdown demonstrated that PD-L1 promoted NPC cellsinvasion and metastasis in vitro ...

Authors: Lu Z, Xu Y, Yao Y, Jiang S Abstract Endometrial cancer (EC) is one of the most frequent malignancies occurring in female genital system. miR-205-5p has been reported to involve in the progression of multiple malignancies, including EC. However, the detail function and mechanism of miR-205-5p in chemoresistance of EC have not been defined. qRT-PCR assay was performed to detect miR-205-5p abundance in EC tissues and cell lines. The sensitivity of HEC-1-A and RL95-2 cells to PTX was assessed based on the results of IC50. MTT and flow cytometry (FCM) analyses were carried out to determine cell proliferation an...

Authors: Maimaitiming A, Wusiman A, Aimudula A, Kuerban X, Su P Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the roles of microRNA-152 (miR-152) in the initiation and progression of breast cancer. The expression level of miR-152 was detected in human breast cancer tissue and a panel of human breast cancer cell lines using qRT-PCR. Results found that miR-152 expression was significantly down-regulated in breast cancer tissue samples compared to adjacent noncancerous tissues as well as in breast cancer cell lines. Overexpression of miR-152 significantly suppressed breast cancer cell proliferation, migrati...

Authors: Wei J, Yan Y, Chen X, Qian L, Zeng S, Li Z, Dai S, Gong Z, Xu Z Abstract Over the past decade, natural compounds have been proved to be effective against many human diseases, including cancers. Triptolide (TPL), a diterpenoid triepoxide from the Chinese herb T. wilfordii Hook F, has exhibited attractive cytotoxic activity on several cancer cells. Especially, an increasing number of studies have emphasized the anti-tumor effects of TPL on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Here, we mainly focused on the key molecular signaling pathways that lead to the inhibitory effects of TPL on human NSCLC, such as mito...

Authors: Wu W, He L, Huang Y, Hou L, Zhang W, Zhang L, Wu C Abstract Increasing number of studies demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) may play key roles in various cancer carcinogenesis and progression, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the expressions, roles and mechanisms of miR-510 in NSCLC have, up to now, been largely undefined. In vivo assay showed that miR-510 was upregulated in NSCLC tissues compared with that in adjacent non-tumor lung tissues. MmiR-510 expression was significantly correlated with TNM stage and lymph node metastasis. In vitro assay indicated expressions of miR-510 wer...

Conclusions: This study uncovered a dysregulated lncRNA-associated ceRNA network in colon cancer. The function of the identified lncRNAs in colon cancer was preliminarily explored, and their potential prognostic value was evaluated. Our study demonstrated that lncRNAs could potentially serve as important regulators in the development and progression of colon cancer. Candidate prognostic lncRNA biomarkers in colon cancer were identified. PMID: 30984308 [PubMed - in process]
