Mismatch Repair Status of Gastric Cancer and Its Association with the Local and Systemic Immune Response

Conclusions.The association between systemic/local immune response and prognosis differed according to MSI status. Different tumor characteristics and prognoses according to MSI status could be associated with the immunogenicity caused by microsatellite instability and subsequent host immune response.Implications for Practice.This study demonstrates that the density of each subset of tumor‐infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) differed between microsatellite instability (MSI)‐high and non‐MSI‐high tumors. Moreover, the prognostic effect of the preoperative systemic immune response status and TILs differed between the MSI‐high (MSI‐H) and non‐MSI‐H tumor groups. The present study may help to identify the mechanisms of cancer progression and develop treatment strategies for MSI‐high gastric cancer.

Authors: Chen P, Wang H, Li M, Yang L, Mou F, Singh B, He JY, Zhang W Abstract 6,12-Diphenyl-3,9-diazatetraasterane-1, 5, 7, 11-tetracarboxylate (DDTC) has been synthesized by the photodimerization of 4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate. The potential of theercvantitumor activity and mechanism were investigated in vitro using MTT assay in human lung cancer cell line A549, ovarian cancer cell lines SKOV3 and A2780, breast cancer cell line MCF-7, gastric cancer cell line BGC-823, colon cancer cell line HT29, prostate cancer cell line DU145, and liver cancer cell line SMMC7721. The results show that DDTC ca...

Conclusion: Because the morphology of cancer cells cultured in this 3D culture system is similar to that in living organisms, we called the system a “tissueoid cell culture system.” Coating with collagen IV enables the modification of cell-matrix interactions as well as recapitulation of the in vivo microenvironment.Pathobiology

Authors: Lv L, Gu H, Chen Z, Tang W, Zhang S, Lin Z Abstract BACKGROUND: MicroRNA (miR)-146a might participate in the occurrence of malignant tumor. The aim of the current investigation was to evaluate the relationship of microRNA-146a (miR-146a) rs2910164 C> G locus to the development of digestive system cancer (DSC). METHODS: We retrieved publications from PubMed, China Biology Medicine and EMBASE databases up to August 29, 2019. Finally, 56 independent case-control studies with 59,098 participants were included. The strength of the relationship between rs2910164 locus and a risk of DSC was assessed. ...

Abstract Rapid and accurate monitoring of cancer cells with high sensitivity is essential for a successful cancer treatment. As high-affinity nucleic acid ligands, aptamers can improve the properties of detection methods by conjugating with intracellular or extracellular cancer biomarkers. Despite the advances in the early detection and treatment of cancer cells, lacking effective early detection tools is one of the causes of a high mortality rate. Aptasensors, which are based on the specificity of aptamer-target recognition, with transduction for analytical purposes have received particular attention due to their...

Authors: Kong L, Sun Y, Chen M, Dai Y, Liu Z Abstract MicroRNA (miR)-320a is specific to vertebrates and has been indicated to serve a role in a number of cancer types, such as gastric, colorectal, pancreatic and ovarian cancer. miR-320a has been reported to be expressed at high levels in retinoblastoma tissues; however its role and mechanism of function in retinoblastoma remain to be elucidated. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of miR-320a in retinoblastoma cells and the underlying mechanisms. The expression of miR-320a in retinoblastoma cell lines Y79 and WERI-Rb-1, and normal human retina...
