Cancers, Vol. 12, Pages 818: Hypoxia and Macrophages Act in Concert Towards a Beneficial Outcome in Colon Cancer

In conclusion, we show that in colon cancer, hypoxia drives macrophages into a pro-inflammatory phenotype, concomitant with increased infiltration of anti-tumor immune cells, favoring better disease outcome.

Isorhamnetin Induces Melanoma Cell Apoptosis via the PI3K/Akt and NF-κB Pathways. Biomed Res Int. 2020;2020:1057943 Authors: Duan R, Liang X, Chai B, Zhou Y, Du H, Suo Y, Chen Z, Li Q, Huang X Abstract Malignant melanoma is characterized by its bad prognosis for aggressiveness, drug resistance, and early metastasis. Isorhamnetin (3'-methoxy-3,4',5,7-tetrahydroxyflavone; IH) is a natural flavonoid that has been investigated for its antitumor effects in breast cancer, colon cancer, and gastric cancer through inducing cell apoptosis. Given its role in tumor inhibition, no research has been conducte...

Conclusions: Most cancers may be insensitive to social development. Internal factors, including aging, may be a key factor for the occurrence of cancer. PMID: 32462031 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: People with schizophrenia do not have a higher overall incidence of cancer than people in the general population. However, there are significant differences in the risk of specific cancer types overall and by sex calling for efforts to develop disease-specific prevention programmes. In people with schizophrenia, higher risk generally occurs in those

Abstract Objectives: We aimed to evaluate the possible role of dietray TAC against different types of cancers in a systematic review and meta-analyses of observational studies. Methods: A literature search of authentic electronic resources had been performed to obtain the relevant studies up to February 2020. Results: Twenty-one studies including nine prospective and twelve case-control studies were included in the current systematic review and meta-analysis. These studies have included 1404297 individuals. Higher TAC categories were associated with 21% reduced risk of colorectal cancer, 27% reduced risk of endome...

Abstract Natural polysaccharides as well as biopolymers are now days widely developed for targeting colon cancer using various drug delivery systems. Currently, healing conformations are being explored that can efficiently play multipurpose role. Owing to the capability of extravagance colonic diseases with least adverse effects, biopolymers for site specific colon delivery has developed an increased curiosity over the past decades. Inulin (INU) was explored for its probable application as an entrapment material concerning its degradation by enzymes in the colonic microflora and its drug release behavior in a sust...

In this study, we investigated the antitumor activities of H2Mab-19 in pancreatic cancer xenograft models. We selected MIA PaCa-2, a pancreatic cancer cell line which expresses HER2. H2Mab-19 showed high binding affinity (KD: 1.2 × 10-8 M) against MIA PaCa-2 cells. Furthermore, H2Mab-19 significantly reduced tumor development in a MIA PaCa-2 xenograft model. These results suggest that treatment with H2Mab-19 may be a useful therapy for patients with HER2-expressing pancreatic cancers. PMID: 32423281 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: MACC1 was highly expressed in gastric cancer tissues. The expression of MACC1 was related to the differentiation degree, infiltration depth, lymph node metastasis and staging of gastric cancer. Down-regulation of MACC1 could inhibit the proliferation and invasion of gastric cancer cells. This study provided a certain biological basis for early clinical prediction, diagnosis and treatment of gastric cancer. PMID: 32415936 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

on;ková Ľ, Bilková A Abstract Adhesion of probiotic bacteria to the mucus layer lining the gastrointestinal tract is necessary for its effective colonisation and specific therapeutic effects. Enrichment of growth medium with mucin might stimulate bacterial adhesion, probably by increasing the expression of surface structures responsible for bacteria-gut epithelia and/or mucus interactions. The aim of this study was to determine if pre-cultivation of potentially probiotic strain Lactobacillus reuteri E (LRE) with mucin stimulates its adherence to colon cell line HT-29 and if the increased adhesion mo...
