Conclusions: Diabetes increased the risk of all-cause mortality among breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer survivors, not for pre- or post-diagnosis diabetes. Greater attention on diabetes management is warranted in cancer survivors with diabetes.

This article reviews and discusses the previous studies on CCL20 roles in cancers from the aspects of its specific effects on various cancers, its remodeling on tumor microenvironment (TME), its synergistic effects with other cytokines in tumor microenvironment, and the specific mechanisms of CCL20 signal activation, illustrating CCL20 signaling in TME from multiple directions.

Authors: Lee YS, Cho YB Abstract The tumor microenvironment is the primary location in which tumor cells and the host immune system interact. There are many physiological, biochemical, cellular mechanisms in the neighbor of tumor which is composed of various cell types. Interactions of chemokines and chemokine receptors can recruit immune cell subsets into the tumor microenvironment. These interactions can modulate tumor progression and metastasis. In this chapter, we will focus on chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 7 (CCL7) that is highly expressed in the tumor microenvironment of various cancers, including colorectal c...

Dékány Szántay Hazai Chrysin is a naturally occurring flavonoid with mild anticancer activity. In this paper we report the synthesis of new chrysin derivatives alkylated with N-phenylchloroacetamides in position 7. A novel method was developed for the preparation of 7-aminochrysin derivatives via the Smiles rearrangement, resulting in diphenylamine-type compounds. In silico studies of the Smiles rearrangement were performed. We also present the in vitro antiproliferative activity of the synthesized compounds against 60 human tumor cell lines (NCI60). The most potent derivative exhibited nano...

In this study cytotoxicity of organotin(IV) compounds with 1,2,4-triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines, Me3Sn(5tpO) (1), n-Bu3Sn(5tpO) (2), Me3Sn(mtpO) (3), n-Bu3Sn(mtpO) (4), n-Bu3Sn(HtpO2) (5), Ph3Sn(HtpO2) (6) where 5HtpO = 4,5-dihydro-5-oxo-[1,2,4]triazolo-[1,5-a]pyrimidine, HmtpO = 4,7-dihydro-5-methyl-7-oxo-[1,2,4]triazolo-[1,5-a]pyrimidine, and H2tpO2 = 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-5,7- dioxo-[1,2,4]triazolo-[1,5-a]-pyrimidine, was assessed on three different human tumor cell lines: HCT-116 (colorectal carcinoma), HepG2 (hepatocarcinoma) and MCF-7 (breast cancer). While 1 and 3 were inactive, compounds 2, 4, 5 and 6 inhibited the growth...

In this study, the extraction of an Ircinia sp. sponge resulted in the isolation of an inseparable mixture of (7E,12E,20Z)-variabilin (1) and (7E,12Z,20Z)-variabilin (2) and structural assignment was established using standard 1D and 2D NMR experiments. The cytotoxic activity of the compound against three solid tumour cell lines displayed moderate anti-cancer activity through apoptosis, together with a general lack of selectivity among the cancer cell lines studied. Structural assignment and cytotoxic evaluation of variabilin was complicated and further aggravated by its inherent instability. Variabilin was therefore incor...

A growing number of studies have shown that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play an important role in tumor development and progression and are key molecules affecting tumor progression. The lncRNA Wilms tumor 1 antisense RNA (WT1-AS) is specifically expressed in various malignant tumors. In particular, WT1-AS expression is upregulated in colon cancer and breast cancer but is significantly downregulated in cervical cancer, liver cancer, and kidney cancer. The level of WT1-AS expression is closely related to the size, stage, and patient survival rate of these cancers. In this article, we review the modes of action, expressio...

Abstract BACKGROUND: A previous study found evidence that a breast cancer risk prediction model preferentially selected for less aggressive tumors in Swedish women. In the US, the Gail model has been widely used and was used for entry criteria in two large breast cancer prevention trials. We assessed if higher risk levels from the Gail model were associated with less aggressive tumor characteristics and if risk levels were predictive of mortality and survival. METHODS: We used questionnaire data from women in the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial to calculate Gail risk levels (low
