ConclusionThe results of this study showed that there are some differences in term of protein content between the normal and cancerous lung tissues. Further studies are needed to evaluate these proteins that investigate whether these proteins can candidate as biomarkers to use in the early diagnosis of patients with NSCLC.

Sufficient bowel preparation is crucial for successful screening and surveillance colonoscopy. However, rates of inadequate preparation are still high. We investigated the effects of reinforced patient education using a smartphone application software (APP) for colonoscopy preparation in participants in a CRC screening program.
Lynch syndrome is the most common inherited cause of colorectal cancer (CRC). Contemporary and mutation-specific estimates of CRC-risk in patients undergoing colonoscopy would optimize surveillance strategies. We performed a prospective national cohort study, using data from New Zealand, to assess overall and mutation-specific risk of CRC in patients with Lynch syndrome undergoing surveillance.
In addition to monitoring adverse events (AEs) and post-colonoscopy colorectal cancers (PCCRC), indicators for assessing colonoscopy quality include adenoma detection rate (ADR) and cecal intubation rate (CIR). It is unclear whether there is an association between annual colonoscopy volume and ADR, CIR, AEs, or PCCRC.
In this study, they compare two sequencing methods and design a bioinformatic analysis to establish the basis of a wide study in the research of early detection markers of colon cancer.
Background: Small nucleolar RNA host gene 6 (SNHG6) acts as a carcinogenic gene in colorectal cancer (CRC). However, previous studies on the mechanism by which long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) SNHG6 exerts its carcinogenic effect in CRC have not involved the direct interaction between SNHG6 and proteins, which is a very important carcinogenic mechanism of lncRNAs. Hence, our study conducted a comprehensive RNA-binding proteins–mass spectrometry (ChIRP–MS) analysis on SNHG6 to further explore its carcinogenic mechanism in CRC.Methods: Proteins that interact with SNHG6 were found using ChIRP–MS analysis and wer...
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are able to promote initiation, survival and maintenance of tumor growth and have been involved in gastrointestinal cancers (GICs) such as esophageal, gastric and colorectal. It is well known that blood supply facilitates cancer progression, recurrence, and metastasis. In this regard, tumor-induced angiogenesis begins with expression of pro-angiogenic molecules such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which in turn lead to neovascularization and thus to tumor growth. Another pattern of blood supply is called vasculogenic mimicry (VM). It is a reminiscent of the embryonic vascular network ...
scu Berindan-Neagoe An increasing number of studies suggest the implication of microRNAs (miRNAs) in colorectal (CRC) carcinogenesis and disease progression. Nevertheless, the basic mechanism is not yet clear. We determined plasma miRNA expression levels using Agilent microarray technology followed by overlapping with The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) tissue data and a qRT-PCR validation step and analysis of the altered miRNA signatures to emphasize new mechanistic insights. For TGCA dataset, we identified 156 altered miRNAs (79 downregulated and 77 upregulated) in colorectal tissue samples versus normal tissue. The mi...
