Some mutations in the Xeroderma Pigmentosum D gene may lead to moderate but significant radiosensitivity associated with a delayed radiation-induced ATM nuclear localization.

Conclusions: Our findings suggest that some subsets of XPD patients may be at risk of radiosensitivity reactions and treatment with statins and bisphosphonates may be an interesting approach of radioprotection countermeasure. Different mechanistic models were discussed to better understand the potential specificity of the p.[Arg683Trp];[Arg616Pro] XPD mutations . PMID: 31738647 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Our world has never witnessed a time of greater promise for improving human health. Many of today’s health advances have stemmed from a long arc of discovery that begins with strong, steady support for basic science. In large part because of fundamental research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which traces its roots to 1887, Americans are living longer, healthier lives. Life expectancy for a baby born in the U.S. has risen from 47 years in 1900 to more than 78 years today. Among the advances that have helped to make this possible are a 70% decline in the U.S. death rate from cardiovascular disease ...

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2019Source: Seminars in Cancer BiologyAuthor(s): Vikram Shaw, Suyash Srivastava, Sanjay K. SrivastavaAbstractThe recent development of high throughput compound screening has allowed drug repurposing to emerge as an effective avenue for discovering novel treatments for cancer. FDA-approved antipsychotic drugs fluspirilene, penfluridol, and pimozide are clinically used for the treatment of psychotic disorders, primarily schizophrenia. These compounds, belong to diphenylbutylpiperidine class of antipsychotic drugs, are the potent inhibitors of dopamine D2 receptor and calcium chan...

In conclusion, our findings link the calcification of the vascular tissue with the expression of FGF23 in the vessels and with the elevation of circulating levels this hormone. Permanently Boosting Levels of Natural Killer Cells in Mice to Increase Cancer Resistance Researchers here demonstrate a very interesting approach to immunotherapy: they introduce engineered stem cells in mice that will give rise to additional natural killer T cells, boosting the capability of the ...

tto M Abstract INTRODUCTION: the goal of this study was to evaluate if there is an association between dietary components related to inflammation processes and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in Argentina. METHODS: case-control study 3:1, both genders, ages 24-80 years attended at External Offices of Facultad Odontología Universidad Nacional de Córdoba between 2012 and 2015. Dietary information was collected using a qualitative-quantitative food frequency questionnaire. The Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII) was applied. Logistic regression was applied in order to assess the association among ...

SREBP2 is upregulated in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and co‑operates with c‑Myc to regulate HMGCR expression. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Aug 09;: Authors: Zhong C, Fan L, Li Z, Yao F, Zhao H Abstract Dysregulations of the mevalonate pathway (MVA) have been previously identified. Our previous study demonstrated that 3‑hydroxy‑3‑methylglutaryl‑coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR), the rate‑limiting enzyme of the MVA pathway, was upregulated in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and statin‑inhibited ESCC tumorigenesis. However, the underlying mechanism of HMGCR regulation in ESCC remains...

Results demonstrated that the size of formulations ranged 72–92 nm. The DSPE-mPEG2000 containing formulations (F1 and F3) had higher BTZ encapsulation compared to F2 formulation. The size of the liposomal for...
