UBE2C promotes the progression of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

In conclusion, our results suggest that UBE2C is consistently upregulated in many human solid tumors. It promotes HNSCC progression and may serve as a potential prognostic biomarker in HNSCC. Future studies are warranted to unveil the underlying molecular pathways of UBE2C in HNSCC. PMID: 31870550 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsErbB3 overexpression predicts a poor clinical outcome. Sapitinib was shown to be an effective inhibitor in the HNSCC cell line and animal models of cancer but with no statistical significance. Further studies with larger groups are needed to better support these results.

ConclusionOur previously published data, alongside those from other reports, indicate that DKK3 may have an additional oncogenic function other than tumor suppression.

Chia Yu Oral cancer belongs to head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and has been recognized as one of the most prevalent malignancies worldwide. Recent studies have suggested that cancer stem cells (CSCs) may participate in tumor initiation, metastasis and even recurrence, so the regulation of CSCs has drawn significant attention over the past decade. Among various molecules that are associated with CSCs, non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have been indicated as key players in the acquisition and maintenance of cancer stemness. In addition, accumulating studies have shown that the aberrant expression of these ncRNAs may serve a...

CONCLUSIONS: The presence of CAFs in the tumour stroma is related to an aggressive phenotype and could increase as the disease progresses, although based on our findings, it would have no relationship, at least directly, with the expression of PDPN.

Conclusions: These data suggest that lack of HPV infection is associated with more prominent activation of Wnt/βCatenin signaling pathway and gain of stem-like traits in tobacco-related OSCCs. PMID: 31929745 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Bai S, Yan YB, Chen W, Zhang P, Zhang TM, Tian YY, Liu H Abstract High-throughput gene expression profiling has recently emerged as a promising technique that provides insight into cancer subtype classification and improved prediction of prognoses. Immune/inflammatory-related mRNAs may potentially enrich genes to allow researchers to better illustrate cancer microenvironments. Oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OC-SCC) exhibits high morbidity and poor prognosis compared to that of other types of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), and these differences may be partially due to differences withi...

Formononetin induces apoptotic cell death through the suppression of mitogen‑activated protein kinase and nuclear factor‑κB phosphorylation in FaDu human head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cells. Oncol Rep. 2019 Dec 13;: Authors: Oh JS, Kim TH, Park JH, Lim H, Cho IA, You JS, Lee GJ, Seo YS, Kim DK, Kim CS, Yu SK, Kim HJ, Kim SG, Kim JS Abstract Formononetin, a phytoestrogen extracted from various herbal plants, has been investigated as an anticancer agent against diverse types of cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the induction of apoptotic cell death by formononetin ...

AbstractWe performed a prospective trial to assess the clinical benefit of a tailored gene set built on a next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Archived tumor tissue obtained from patients with recurrent or metastatic HNSCC was analyzed for variants by a tailored Comprehensive Cancer Gene set of 40 genes (CCG-40) performed on a NGS platform. These data were provided to clinicians to inform treatment decisions. The primary endpoint was clinical benefit (disease control) that resulted from selection and administration of a targeted th...
