Comprehensive assessment of the association between XPC rs2228000 and cancer susceptibility based on 26,835 cancer cases and 37,069 controls.

Conclusions The TT genotype of XPC rs2228000 may be linked to an increased risk of bladder and breast cancer, whereas the CT genotype is likely to be associated with reduced susceptibility to gastric cancer in the Chinese population. PMID: 31710080 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: February 2020Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 122Author(s): Li Rong, Zhaodong Li, Xue Leng, Haiyu Li, Yongping Ma, Yaokai Chen, Fangzhou SongAbstractSalidroside, a natural active ingredient extracted from Rhodiola rosea, has been shown to exert antitumor activity against breast cancer Dong Young et al. [1], colon cancer Sun et al. [2] and bladder cancer Tian et al. [3]. However, the effect of salidroside on apoptosis and autophagy in gastric cancer remains unclear. In our research, we observed the biological effect of salidroside on human gastric cancer AGS cells. Our results demonstrated ...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 123Author(s): Soudeh Ghafouri-Fard, Mohammadhosein Esmaeili, Mohammad TaheriAbstractH19 is a long non-coding RNA [lncRNA] which was firstly described as an oncofetal transcript. The imprinted gene is normally expressed from the maternal allele. However, this pattern of imprinting is dysregulated in several cancers leading to aberrant up-regulation of H19 in malignant tissues. Several studies have utilized this aberrant expression pattern to find specific biomarkers for detection of cancer in tumoral tissues or peripheral blood. Moreover, single nu...

Abstract Photodynamic therapy is the combination of the initial application of a photosensitive chemical on the skin and then using typically a blue filter light of varying spectrums. This treatment protocol has been more useful and functional than other chemical peels and lasers for a variety of conditions. There has been efficacy in antiviral treatments, such as herpetic lesions; malignant cancers of the head and neck; and lung, bladder, and skin cancers. It has been tested for prostate cancers, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, ...

Conclusions68Ga-RM2 has been mostly evaluated for PC detection, but it can be used for other tumors overexpressing GRPR such as breast cancer. This atlas of normal biodistribution and SUV measurements in healthy tissues will help physicians distinguish between physiological vs. pathological uptake, as well as potentially assist with planning future studies using GRPR targeting radiopharmaceuticals.

Abstract Cancer incidence rate has increased so much that it is the second leading cause of deaths worldwide after cardiovascular diseases. Sensitive and specific biomarkers are needed for an early diagnosis of cancer and in-time treatment. Recent studies have found that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) participate in cancer tumorigenesis. LncRNA P73 antisense RNA 1T (TP73-AS1), also known as KIAA0495 and p53-dependent apoptosis modulator (PDAM), is located in human chromosomal band 1p36.32 and plays a crucial role in many different carcinomas. This review summarizes current findings on the role of TP73-AS1 and its ...

CONCLUSIONS: Postmenopausal women with high/increasing ET are at increased risk of breast, ovarian and lung cancer. It is important that clinicians are aware of these risks as TVS is a common investigation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
