LncRNA DGCR5 promotes non-small cell lung cancer progression via sponging miR-218-5p.

CONCLUSIONS: DGCR5 enhances NSCLC cell migration and invasion via targeting miR-218-5p, indicating that DGCR5 may be a potential therapeutic target in NSCLC. PMID: 31799664 [PubMed - in process]

(New York University) Following up on their landmark 2016 study, researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine found that a one-time, single-dose treatment of psilocybin, a compound found in psychedelic mushrooms, combined with psychotherapy appears to be associated with significant improvements in emotional and existential distress in cancer patients.

Also, being a problematic BCS class IV drug, it poses challenges for the formulators. Henceforth, it was envisioned to synthesize an analogue of DTX with a biocompatible lipid, i.e., palmitic acid. The in-silico studies (molecular docking a...

Johnson&Johnson Chief Executive Alex Gorsky on Monday faced questions from plaintiffs lawyers over the timing of his sale of company stock, as he testified for the first time in a jury trial over allegations that the company's Baby Powder causes cancer. Gorsky told the jury that he had sold company shares in November 2018, two days after a Reuters reporter contacted the company and summarized in an email her review of documents that showed J&J knew small amou

However, the consequences of MYC amplification in MM remain unclear. Here, we describe an unusual case of plasma cell leukemia (PCL) harboring MYC amplification on double minute chromosomes (dmin). A 79-year-old woman was initially ...

ConclusionWhile a timely work-up of advanced PC patients remains important, delays in treatment initiation due to repeated biopsies, inclusion in a clinical study or transfer to a specialized cancer center appear to be justified in light of the absence of a strong adverse effect of prolonged TTI on prognosis in advanced PC patients.

AbstractNon ‐small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for about 80% of lung cancers worldwide. In recent years, importance of noncoding RNAs including long noncoding RNA and microRNA in regulating tumor progression has been appreciated. Abnormally expression of DiGeorge syndrome critical region gene 5 (DGCR5) was found in multiple human cancers but its function in NSCLC is largely unknown. Reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT‐qPCR) was conducted to explore DGCR5 expression level in NSCLC. Bioinformatic analyses were conducted to explore the targets of DGCR5. Cell counting ki t‐8 assay, woun...
