Cancer could be detected with a URINE test, scientists hope
The test, developed by Imperial College London, was tested on mice. The urine turned a bright blue to correctly indicate colon cancer tumours were present in the body.

In conclusion, our study suggests that sapitinib surmounts MDR mediated by ABCB1 transporter in cancer cells.
We present a case of LGI1 encephalitis only partially responsive to immunotherapy with eventual complete resolution after resection of a squamous cell lung carcinoma.
CONCLUSION: The combination of niclosamide and temozolomide effectively decreased the stemness and invasive properties of GBM TSs, suggesting that this regimen may be therapeutically effective in treating patients with GBM. PMID: 32712753 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
This study aims to determine if the clinical and pathologic presentation of octogenarians with colon cancer differs from that of patients diagnosed at a younger age.
CONCLUSION: This meta-analysis has demonstrated that there was no significant difference in 5-year OS between patients with RSCC and those with LSCC after curative resection. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: The aim of this study is to explore the impact of primary tumor location (PTL) on survival after curative surgery for colon cancer (CC) patients using propensity score-matching (PSM) studies. To integrate the impact of PTL on 5-year overall survival (OS) after curative surgery, a meta-analysis was performed for the selected PSM studies. Five studies involving a total of 398,687 CC patients were included in this meta-ana...
Abstract Tea is the most popularly consumed beverage in the world. Theaflavin and thearubigins are the key bioactive compounds of black tea that have anticarcinogenic properties as reported in several studies. However, the epigenetic potential of these compounds has not yet been explored. DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) enzymes induce methylation of DNA at cytosine residues and play a significant role in epigenetic regulation and cancer therapy. The present study has explored the role of black tea as a DNMT inhibitor in the prevention of cancer. Herein, the effect of theaflavin has been studied in colon cancer cell l...
Conclusion: Andrographolide repressed the colon cancer cell growth via inhibiting Hh signaling pathway. PMID: 33030050 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) with BRAF (V600E) is associated with microsatellite instability (MSI) that predicts response to immune checkpoint inhibitors. We demonstrated the interrogation of TCGA RNA-seq human datasets revealed that BRAFV600E tumors had significantly higher Programmed Death Ligand 1 (PD-L1) mRNA compared to non-mutated BRAF CRCs. Also, MSI-H tumors were evaluated as higher PD-L1 than MSS CRCs. Inhibition of MEK/ERK by cobimetinib or CDK inhibitor dinaciclib was shown to attenuate mutant BRAF-induced PD-L1 coincident with reduced c-JUN and YAP expression whose combined knockdown reduced PD-L1....
