COL12A1, a novel potential prognostic factor and therapeutic target in gastric cancer.

COL12A1, a novel potential prognostic factor and therapeutic target in gastric cancer. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Aug 01;: Authors: Jiang X, Wu M, Xu X, Zhang L, Huang Y, Xu Z, He K, Wang H, Wang H, Teng L Abstract Dysregulation of collagen type XII α1 chain (COL12A1) has been found in several cancer types and could be involved in tumor progression. However, its clinical significance in gastric cancer (GC) remains under exploration. Online databases (Gene Expression Omnibus and UALCAN), reverse transcription‑quantitative PCR and immunohistochemistry were utilized in the present study to evaluate the expression of COL12A1 in GC tissues and cell lines. It was found that COL12A1 expression was notably upregulated in GC. Clinicopathological analysis showed that elevated COL12A1 expression was positively correlated with tumor invasiveness, metastasis and advanced clinical stage. The prognostic analysis suggested that high COL12A1 expression contributed to poor overall survival. Multivariate Cox analysis indicated that COL12A1 overexpression was a powerful independent prognostic indicator in patients with GC (hazard ratio, 1.896; 95% CI, 1.267‑2.837; P=0.002). The results highlighted the importance of COL12A1 in GC and suggested its potential role as a candidate for clinical outcome prediction and targeted therapy in patients with GC.

In this study, we found that DB inhibited GC cells and hepatocytes cell viability in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Specifically, high-dose DB (50μM) significantly inhibited cell proliferation and promoted cell apoptosis, while low dose DB (12.5μM) had little effects on cell viability. Besides, high-dose DB (50μM) significantly decreased CircRNA CDR1as levels in gastric cancer cells instead of hepatocytes. Notably, knock-down of CircRNA CDR1as triggered low-dose DB (12.5μM) induced GC cell death, but had little effects on hepatocytes proliferation and apoptosis. Further results showed that CircRNA CDR1as in...

ConclusionsTranscervical pharyngo-laryngo-cervico-esophagectomy should be considered in patients with isolated cervical esophageal tumors. Pharyngo-laryngo-cervico-esophagectomy allows adequate tumor resection while preserving the esophagus and stomach below. Operative morbidity and mortality outcomes were improved without compromising oncologic control.

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2019Source: PeptidesAuthor(s): Aneta Lidia Zygulska, Agata Furgala, Jolanta Kaszuba-Zwoińska, Krzysztof Krzemieniecki, Krzysztof GilAbstractPhysiological roles of enterohormones such as secretion, absorption and digestion were supported by clinical data. Overexpression of cholecystokinin (CCK), neurotensin (NT) and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) receptors occur in gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies. The aim of the paper was to compare plasma levels of CCK, peptide YY (PYY), VIP and NT in patients with gastrointestinal malignancies and healthy controls. The study include...

ConclusionsOur study data indicated that miR-27b-3p is downregulated by aberrant DNA methylation in GC. In addition, miR-27b-3p suppresses GC cell proliferation, invasion, and migration via negative expression regulation of GSPT1, which could be a potential therapeutic target.

Conclusions: The effects of vonoprazan is better than PPIs than H2RAs in preventing bleeding after ESD. When vonoprazan combined with mucosal protective antiulcer drug in treatment or used in 8 weeks of medication, the efficacy may be even better.

Authors: Waldum HL, Rehfeld JF Abstract Gastric cancer, a disease with a reduced frequency for decades, now appears to be on the rise again in young Americans. The epidemiology of gastric cancer differs between tumors in the cardia and those of the more distal parts of the stomach. The tumors are divided into the intestinal type showing glandular growth pattern and the diffuse type with a different pattern. The latter often expresses neuroendocrine and more specifically ECL-cell markers suggesting that they originate from the ECL cell, the target cell for the antral hormone, gastrin. Helicobacter pylori gastritis i...

Contributors : Matthew N Davies ; Marco GerlingerSeries Type : Genome variation profiling by SNP arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensGastro-esophageal adenocarcinomas (GEAs) are aggressive cancers and multiple trials of targeted therapies recently failed to improve survival in these tumors. Intratumor heterogeneity (ITH) is suspected to contribute to poor outcomes. Here we investigate the degree of ITH in multiple primary and metastatic regions of gastric adenocarcinoma tumours.ITH increased significantly with lymph node metastasis formation and subclonal aberrations activating the Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK)-pathway w...
