“Finding my own motivation” — A Mixed Methods Study of Exercise and Behaviour Change Support During Oncological Treatment

ConclusionsThe results indicate the importance of finding incentives and creating an environment that fosters autonomy, competence and relatedness to motivate persons to exercise during oncological treatment. Some BCTs appear particularly useful and may be used by health professionals to increase patients ’ motivation to exercise.

MicroRNA‑192 inhibits cell proliferation and induces apoptosis in human breast cancer by targeting caveolin 1. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 30;: Authors: Chen P, Feng Y, Zhang H, Shi X, Li B, Ju W, Yu X, Zhang N, Luo X Abstract It has been demonstrated that microRNA‑192 (miR‑192) serves important roles in different cancer types, including breast cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. However, its biological role and function in breast cancer remains largely unknown. The present study aimed to determine the role of miR‑192 in breast cancer. In the present study, one normal breast and two breast t...

This study compared the association between insurance coverage at diagnosis and cancer-specific mortality (CSM; insurance sensitivity) in 6 cancers. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Using the SEER cancer registry, data were abstracted for individuals diagnosed with ovarian, pancreatic, lung, colorectal, prostate, or breast cancer in 2007 through 2010. The association between insurance coverage at diagnosis and CSM was modeled using a Fine and Gray competing-risks regression adjusted for demographics. An interaction term combining insurance status and cancer type was used to test whether insurance sensitivity differed between canc...

Abstract Apoptosis is one of the major mechanisms exhibited in response to cell death and induction of apoptosis in tumour cells signifies a potential target for cancer therapy. Bcl-2 family proteins play a key role in regulation of the apoptotic pathway. Bcl-2 overexpression is commonly associated with various cancers including breast cancer, prostate cancer, B-cell lymphomas and colorectal adenocarcinomas etc. Thus, Bcl-2 is a novel anti-cancer target attracting medicinal chemists across the globe. Research investigations underlying Bcl-2 target have resulted in the generation of small molecule inhibitors, named...

In this study, a computational prediction model has been remodeled as a matrix completion framework of the recommendation system by completing the unknown items in the rating matrix. A novel method named faster randomized matrix completion for latent disease-lncRNA association prediction (FRMCLDA) has been proposed by virtue of improved randomized partial SVD on a heterogeneous bilayer network. First, the correlated data source and experimentally validated information of diseases and lncRNAs are integrated to construct a heterogeneous bilayer network. Next, the integrated heterogeneous bilayer network can be formalized as ...

AbstractA crucial step for tumor cell extravasation and metastasis is the migration through the extracellular matrix, which requires proteolytic activity. Hence, proteases, particularly matrix metalloproteases (MMPs), have been discussed as therapeutic targets and their inhibition should diminish tumor growth and metastasis. The metalloproteases meprin α and meprin β are highly abundant on intestinal enterocytes and their expression was associated with different stages of colorectal cancer. Due to their ability to cleave extracellular matrix (ECM) components, they were suggested as pro-tumorigenic enzymes. Addit...

AbstractObjectiveDosimetric comparison of HIPO (hybrid inverse planning optimisation) and IPSA (inverse planning simulated annealing) inverse and forward optimisation (FO) methods in brachytherapy (BT) of breast, cervical and prostate cancer.MethodsAt our institute 38  breast, 47 cervical and 50 prostate cancer patients treated with image-guided interstitial high-dose-rate BT were selected. Treatment plans were created using HIPO and IPSA inverse optimisation methods as well as FO. The dose–volume parameters of different treatment plans were compared with Fr iedman ANOVA and the LSD post-hoc test.Resul...

Knockdown of KLK12 inhibits viability and induces apoptosis in human colorectal cancer HT-29 cell line. Int J Mol Med. 2019 Aug 30;: Authors: Li Q, Zhou X, Fang Z, Zhou H Abstract Kallikrein‑related peptidase 12 (KLK12) is overexpressed in cancer tissues including gastric, breast and prostate cancer. However, the role of KLK12 in colorectal cancer is not fully understood. In the present study, the level of KLK12 was determined by performing reverse transcription‑polymerase chain reaction (RT‑qPCR) in colorectal cancer tissues and cell lines. Lipofectamine® 2000 was used to transfect HT...

Studies have identified that the polymorphism rs10069690 of telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) is associated with cancer risk, but the results remain inconclusive. We performed a meta ‐analysis of 45 published studies including 329,035 cases and 730,940 controls. This meta‐analysis suggested that the TERT rs10069690 polymorphism may be a risk factor for cancer, especially breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and lung cancer. Further functional studies are warranted to reveal the ro le of the polymorphism in carcinogenesis. AbstractBackgroundStudies have identified that the telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) gene po...

Abstract The syntheses of the heterometallic sodium and potassium-dioxidovanadium 2D polymers, [NaVO2(1κNOO';2κO"-L)(H2O)]n(1) and [KVO2(1κNOO';2κO';3κO"-L)(EtOH)]n(2) (where the κ notation indicates the coordinating atoms of the polydentate ligand L) derived from (3,5-di-tert-butyl-2-hydroxybenzylidene)-2-hydroxybenzohydrazide (H2L) are reported. The polymers were characterized by IR, NMR, elemental analysis and single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The antiproliferative potential of 1 and 2 was examined towards four human cancer cell lines (ovarian carcinoma, A2...

Mutational inactivation of p53 is a key player in the development of human cancer. Thus, retrieving the tumor suppressor activity of p53 gene is considered a novel strategy in cancer therapy. Current study aimed to investigate the anti-cancer potentials of botulinum toxin type-A (BTX-A) and captopril as a trial to shed light on effective anti-cancer therapy with lower side effects. Cytotoxic effect of captopril and BTX-A was determined using MTT assay against colon (HCT116) and prostate cancer (DU145) cells compared to their effect on normal vero cells. Anti-proliferation assay and anti-metastatic effect were carried out u...
