A Single‐Arm, Phase II Study of Apatinib in Refractory Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
Conclusion.Apatinib monotherapy showed promising efficiency for patients with refractory colorectal cancer, especially in patients with PS 0–1 or no liver metastasis. ctDNA abundance may be a predictor in serial monitoring of tumor load.
In this study, we show that LOC389641 is involved in PTC, which suggests that it may be a target for TC therapies. PMID: 32940082 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: STAT6 may act as a prognostic biomarker and provide useful information for immunotherapy in thyroid carcinoma. PMID: 32940081 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Moll SA, Wiertz IA, Vorselaars AD, Zanen P, Ruven HJ, van Moorsel CH, Grutters JC Abstract Aim: Cancer antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3) is a baseline biomarker in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), but its value during follow-up is unknown. Materials and methods: Associations between serum CA 15-3 and pulmonary function tests during 1-year follow-up were evaluated by a mixed model in 132 IPF treated with pirfenidone or nintedanib. Results: Increased baseline (median: 56 kU/l) and follow-up CA 15-3 levels were inversely associated with forced vital capacity and diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxid...

Conclusion: Metabolite biomarker candidates for PC are useful for detecting high-risk IPMN, which can progress to PC. PMID: 32940075 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: This study indicated that approximately a third of the CRC patients are diagnosed with EMAST, hereupon EMAST as a prognostic and predictive biomarker should be more studied clinically. PMID: 32940074 [PubMed - in process]
This article aims to review current advances in revealing relationship between tumors and abnormal N-glycosylation and discuss leading-edge applications of N-glycosylation in developing novel tumor biomarkers. PMID: 32940073 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Bolek EC, Kaya Akca U, Sari A, Sag E, Demir S, Kilic L, Sener YZ, Aykan HH, Kaya EB, Bilginer Y, Akdogan A, Kiraz S, Karadag O, Ozen S Abstract OBJECTIVES: Takayasu's arteritis (TAK) is a chronic vasculitis, affecting predominantly the aorta and/or its major branches. The aim of this study was to compare the differences between childhood and adult onset TAK. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 179 TAK patients followed between August 2005 and July 2019. Demographic characteristics, laboratory features, disease activity, echocardiographic data at diagnosis and treatment regimens in the disease course ...
