Squamous Cell Carcinoma in Lichen Planus of the Esophagus

We report 2 elderly female patients with LPE who developed squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Both underwent laparoscopic ischemic gastric preconditioning followed 2 weeks later by 3-field esophagectomy. Final pathological stages were carcinoma-in-situ and pT3N2, respectively. No adjuvant therapy was given. The patient with in-situ cancer has no evidence of recurrence at 24 months. The 2nd patient opted to follow up locally and died 8 months later. LPE should be closely monitored for malignant degeneration. Esophagectomy should be considered when malignancy is detected.

CONCLUSION: This first randomized resistance training trial in pancreatic cancer patients indicated clinically relevant improve- ments in QoL after 3 but not after 6 months. Given the severity of pancreatic cancer, exercise recommendations may already commence at surgery. PMID: 31431236 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: 15 December 2019Source: Journal of Molecular Structure, Volume 1198Author(s): Lei Wang, Gui-Bin XueAbstractSolvothermal reactions of 1, 3, 5-tris (4-carboxyphenyl)-benzene (H3BTB) with Gd(NO3)·6H2O gave rise to a new highly porous coordination polymer {[Gd(BTB)(H2O)](DMF)(H2O)}n (1) having three dimensional structure. In light of its highly rigid framework as well as the large one-dimensional triangular channel configuration that has abundant open metal sites, we can utilize the resulting activated 1a as effective Lewis catalysts for the acetaldehyde's cyanosilylation at room temperature. The compa...

Hubert JoeAbstractCo(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes of Schiff base ligand (thio-L-his) derived from thiophene-2-carboxaldehyde (thio) with l-histidine (L-his) were synthesised. The thio-L-his and its metal complexes have been optimized and quantum chemical parameters are calculated using density functional theory. Despite several donor sites in the synthesised thio-L-his, the coordination with metal ion occurred through azomethine nitrogen and carboxylate oxygen as eviden...

Despite the great advances in chemotherapy, there is still no certain medical treatment for cancer. During this investigation, a novel 2,5-diketopiperazine derivative 3(R),6(S)-bis (4-hydroxy phenyl)-piperazine-2,5-dione: (BHPPD) was designed, synthesized, and evaluated. The effects on intestinal protea...

In this study, we performed RNA-sequencing analysis of MCF10A cells and identified 1166 genes that were upregulated and 861 genes that were downregulated by TGF-β. Gene set enrichment analysis revealed that focal adhesion and metabolic pathways were the top enriched pathways of the up- and downregulated genes, respectively. Genes in these pathways also possess significant predictive value for renal cancers. Moreover, we confirmed that TGF-β induced expression of MICAL1 and 2, and the histone demethylase, KDM7A, and revealed their regulatory roles on TGF-β-induced cell migration. We also show a critical effec...

IAPs are proteins with antiapoptotic abilities, and their functions are different from the Bcl-2 (B-cell lymphoma-2) family proteins. However, the precise role of Livin in colon cancer progression remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of overexpression Livin in colon cancer cells and to examine its molecular mechanism. We demonstrated that Livin induced a colon cancer phen...

Here, its effect and underlying mechanism in the treatment of pancreatic cancer were investigated. SEP obviously inhibited pancreatic cancer growth by activating NK cells in vitro/vivo via TLR4/MAPKs/NF-κB signaling pathway, The tumor inhibitory rate achieved to 44.5% and 50.8% at a dose of 40 mg/kg in Bxpc-3 and SW1...

However, the bioavailability, the extent and the rate at which these drugs reach the target tissue are highly dependent on the carrier and on the route of administration. Among the multitude of biocompatible polymers used to design vehicles for macromolecu...
