This study shows that clustering analysis is a useful tool for verifying established characteristics and generating new insights for NSCLC. Importantly, for one “immune signature” cluster, the signature of the TIL (especially the amount of CD8+ TIL) was more crucial than the histologic or any other phenotypical aspect. This may be an important finding toward explaining why only a fraction of eligible patients respond to immunomodulating anticancer therapies.

Dr. Laura Mulvey, 33, practices emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. After spending six days receiving treatment in her own hospital, she is now recovering at home from what is presumed to be COVID-19, though her test was inconclusive. What follows is a lightly-edited transcript of her story as told to TIME. Early on, sometime in February, [COVID-19] was something that people were thinking about. And worried about. Certainly, the worries were not what they are now. But hospital-wise, we had a bit of an earlier jump on it, because we recognized that this was a potential threat. We’re ...

SKA2 promotes proliferation and invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma cells via activating the β-catenin signaling pathway. Neoplasma. 2020 Mar 30;: Authors: Wang D, Suo YJ, Gong L, Lv SQ Abstract Spindle and kinetochore associated complex subunit 2 (SKA2) is a part of the spindle and kinetochore associated (SKA) complex, which has been reported in various cancers, including the breast cancer, lung cancer, and glioma. However, its role remains unclear in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our study found that SKA2 mRNA levels and immunohistochemistry staining were significantly increased in HCC tissu...

Authors: Wang J, Yang X, Han S, Zhang L Abstract Disrupted centrosome-associated family protein expression can result in the detrimental duplication of centrosomes, causing genomic instability and subsequent carcinogenesis. Limited research has demonstrated that centrosomal protein 131 (CEP131) exhibits oncogenic activity in osteosarcoma, hepatocellular carcinoma and breast cancer. The present study demonstrated that there is an association between CEP131 expression and advanced Tumor-Node-Metastasis stage (P=0.016), and positive regional lymph node metastasis (P=0.023) in 91 cases of non-small cell lung cancer. A5...

Authors: Lin M, Li Y, Qin S, Jiao Y, Hua F Abstract Ubiquitin-like modifier-activating enzyme 7 (UBA7) is a specific E1-like ubiquitin-activating enzyme involved in interferon-stimulated gene 15 (ISG15) conjugation. UBA7 expression has been reported to be notably decreased in lung cancer. The present study aimed to investigate the changes in UBA7 expression in breast cancer and the association between UBA7 expression and clinical characteristics, and to elucidate the diagnostic and prognostic significance of UBA7 in breast cancer. The clinical data and RNA-sequencing expression values of 1,104 patients with breast ...

Authors: Zhang P, Tao H, Yu L, Zhou L, Zhu C Abstract Injectable implants with the ability to form in situ are one of the most promising carriers for the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs to tumor sites. We have reported a novel injectable in situ-forming implant system composed of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA), ethyl oleate, along with the sol-gel phase transition. The chemotherapeutic drug-loaded injectable NBCA ethyl oleate implant (INEI) exhibited excellent therapeutic efficacy for local chemotherapy. Herein, we utilize this INEI to carry N, N'-(Sulfonyldi-4,1-phenylene)bis(2-chloroacetamide) (TE-C-5003), whi...

Adipose Tissue-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Suppress Growth of Huh7 Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells via Interferon (IFN)-β-Mediated JAK/STAT1 Pathway in vitro. Int J Med Sci. 2020;17(5):609-619 Authors: Byun CS, Hwang S, Woo SH, Kim MY, Lee JS, Lee JI, Kong JH, Bae KS, Park IH, Kim SH, Eom YW Abstract Interferon (IFN)-β and/or tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) secreted by adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASCs) have been proposed as key mechanistic factors in anti-cancer efficacy in lung cancer and breast cancer cells, where they act through paracri...

Tumour cells may be resistance to radiotherapy that results in unsuccessful cancer treatment in patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the sensitizing effect of atorvastatin (ATV) on breast cancer (MDA-MB-231) and non-small lung cancer (A-549) cells following exposure to ionizing radiation (IR). These cells were treated with ATV and exposed to X-ray at dose 4 Gy. The radiosensitizing effects of ATV were evaluated by flow cytometry and anti-proliferation assays. The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was determined in irradiated and treated cells with ATV. The findings of this study showed that ATV increas...
