Editorial: Emerging Biomarkers in Genitourinary Tumors

Conclusions The identification of effective biomarkers has becoming a major focus in cancer research, mainly due to the necessity of selecting potentially responsive patients in order to improve their outcomes, as well as to reduce the toxicity and costs related to ineffective treatments. This Research Topic aims to include the description of these emerging techniques and identify the most promising biomarkers in genitourinary tumors. Author Contributions RM and MS: Conception and design. AC: Drafting the manuscript. AL-B and LC: Critical revision of the manuscript and review of the literature. Conflict of Interest Statement The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.

Publication date: Available online 15 September 2019Source: Advances in Biological RegulationAuthor(s): Yi Cai, Andrew Yousef, Jennifer R. Grandis, Daniel E. JohnsonAbstractEpidemiologic evidence indicates that regular use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) provides a protective effect against the development of colorectal, breast, and head and neck cancers. Genomic characterization of these cancers has lent considerable insight into the subpopulations of cancer patients who are most likely to benefit from NSAID therapy. The PIK3CA gene encodes the catalytic subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) and...

WengAbstractT-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is an aggressive cancer, characterized by an uncontrolled expansion and accumulation of T-cell progenitors. During leukemic progression, immature T cells grow abnormally and occupy the bone marrow compartment, thereby interfering with the production of normal blood cells. Pediatric T-ALL is curable with intensive chemotherapy, but there are significant, long-term side effects and ∼20% of patients suf...

The House Committee on Science, Space and Technology has launched an inquiry into the Commerce Department’s involvement in National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) actions to support President Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian would impact Alabama. This is the third probe to be initiated on the matter. Democratic leaders of the House Science panel have asked Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross for detailed information as well as a briefing with NOAA employees about the agency’s actions around the President’s false claims. “It appears that in an attempt to support President ...

On September 12, 2019, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the repeal of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. That rule defined the wetlands and waterways that are protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA). EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler signed a new rule throwing out the prior definition of the regulation and bringing protection standards from 1986 back into effect. The 2015 rule had been blocked in 27 states and was in effect in 22 others. The repeal places all 50 states back under 1986 regulations. “Thanks to the leadership of the EPA we can move forward with a water rule that protects...

More than 450 scientists from around the world recently released findings showing that up to one million species may become threatened with extinction. At a time when scientists are calling for strengthened biodiversity protections, the United States is undoing provisions of the Endangered Species Act. On August 27, 2019, the Trump Administration published three final regulatory rollbacks that drastically weaken the Endangered Species Act. The Act has successfully protected the bald eagle, American alligator, Pacific salmon, humpback whale, brown pelican, as well as many other species and their habitats-from mountain tops...

GBM is a heterogeneous group of brain tumors, is highly prone to develop resistance and likely to recur. In the context of GBM, the delivery of anti-cancer drugs is challenging because the blood brain barrier (BBB) restricts the passage of small molecules. Currently, nanomedicines based on liposome...
