ConclusionsThe relevance of SPARC expression in pancreato-biliary carcinomas though may still be important for therapeutic decision making, it is not responsible for peritumoral stromal desmoplasia in these tumors and it does not have any significant prognostic implication.

Basosquamous carcinomas (BSCs), which comprise 1.2 –2.7% of skin carcinomas, are aggressive skin tumors that feature histopathologic characteristics of both basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). BSC origin and genetic etiology remain controversial. Chiang and colleagues reported underlying PTCH and SMO mutations in BSCs, su ggesting that Hedgehog signaling drives BSC similar to BCC. Principal component analysis indicated that BSC has greater genetic similarity to BCC than to SCC, supporting the concept that BSCs are derived from BCCs.

Basosquamous carcinoma (BSC) is a rare form of skin cancer with both basaloid and squamous morphology. Chiang et  al. (2019) genetically define BSCs and demonstrate that BSCs likely originate as basal cell carcinomas that partially squamatize through accumulation of ARID1A mutations and RAS/MAPK pathway activation.

CONCLUSION: In renal tumor care, renal biopsy is a reliable testing. However, some factors most likely linked to the tumor anatomy (intra-sinusal tumor) and their histological composition were involved in the lack of non-contribution to the diagnosis.

Whether obesity affects outcomes among those with T2D and atherosclerotic CVD (ASCVD) remains uncertain. Our objective was to investigate the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and ASC...

Publication date: Available online 20 October 2019Source: Seminars in Cancer BiologyAuthor(s): Laurence A. Booth, Jane L. Roberts, Paul DentAbstractThe molecular mechanisms by which tumor cells survive or die following therapeutic interventions are complex. There are three broadly defined categories of cell death processes: apoptosis (Type I), autophagic cell death (Type II), and necrosis (Type III). In hematopoietic tumor cells, the majority of toxic stimuli cause these cells to undergo a death process called apoptosis; apoptosis specifically involves the cleavage of DNA into large defined pieces and their subsequent loca...

Authors: Davaro F, May A, McFerrin C, Raza SJ, Siddiqui S, Hamilton Z Abstract INTRODUCTION: To evaluate the overall survival and pathologic downstaging effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy for upper tract urothelial cell carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The National Cancer Database (NCDB) was queried for patients with stage II-IV upper tract urothelial cell carcinoma undergoing definitive surgical resection (nephroureterectomy) from 2004-2015. Patients with metastatic disease were excluded. Cohorts were stratified by receipt of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). Kaplan-Meier analysis and Cox regression were used t...

Conclusion and Perspectives The IL-6/JAK/STAT signaling cascade plays a dominant role in skeletal muscle pathophysiology. IL-6 autocrine, paracrine, and endocrine functions assign to its downstream effectors pivotal importance in skeletal muscle-wasting-associated diseases and other multiple system diseases where muscle acts in communication with other organs. Targeting the components of the JAK/STAT pathway recently emerged as a strategic approach for the treatment of inflammatory diseases and human cancer. This review highlights the opposite outcomes on muscle biology caused by the amount of local and systemic release ...
