Abstract It is already known that adult height is a factor associated with an increased risk of colon cancer and postmenopausal breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, premenopausal breast cancer, and ovarian cancer. However, the association between adult height and lung cancer incidence remains unclear. The purpose of the present study was to examine the association between adult height and the risk of lung cancer incidence in the Japanese population. We analyzed data for 43,743 men and women who were 40-64 years old at the baseline in 1990. We divided the participants into quintiles based on height at the baseline. Co...

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: 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

This study explores its metabolic diversity and compounds involved in its cytotoxic activity. Extracts from the extracellular fraction of strain USBA 371 showed high levels of cytotoxic activity associated with the production of diketopiperazines (DKPs). We purified two compounds and a mixture of two other compounds from this fraction. Their structures were characterized by 1D and 2D nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The purified compounds were evaluated for additional cytotoxic activities. Compound 1 (cyclo (l-Pro-l-Tyr)) showed cytotoxicity to the following cancer cell lines: breast cancer 4T1 (IC50 57.09 ± 2....

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...

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]

Diabetes has been associated with increased risk of cancer, including breast cancer and colorectal cancer. Metformin, an oral hypoglycemic drug, but not other anti-diabetic drugs, has been associated with reduced risk of breast and of colon cancers in some, but not in other, studies.

Among the many remarkable things that have happened since the COVID-19 pandemic began is that a lot of our usual medical care has simply stopped. According to a recent study, routine testing for cervical cancer, cholesterol, and blood sugar is down nearly 70% across the country. Elective surgeries, routine physical examinations, and other screening tests have been canceled or rescheduled so that people can stay at home, avoid being around others who might be sick, and avoid unknowingly spreading the virus. Many clinics, hospitals, and doctors’ offices have been closed for weeks except for emergencies. Even if these f...

Background and objective Flubendazole is an anthelmintic and categorized in benzimidazole. Previous evidence indicates its suppression on proliferation of colon cancer and breast cancer cells. Our study aims to explore the effects of flubendazole on non-small cell lung cancer A549 and H460 cell lines and the underlying mechanism. Methods CCK-8 assay was used to detect the effect of flubendazole at different concentrations on viability of both cell lines A549 and H460. We used western blot to detect the expression levels of autophagy-related proteins p62 and LC3 after flubendazole treatment. Cells were transfected with tand...

This study provides direct evidence for the contribution of gut microbiota to the cognitive decline during normal aging and suggests that restoring microbiota homeostasis in the elderly may improve cognitive function. On Nutraceutical Senolytics https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/05/on-nutraceutical-senolytics/ Nutraceuticals are compounds derived from foods, usually plants. In principle one can find useful therapies in the natural world, taking the approach of identifying interesting molecules and refining them to a greater potency than naturally occurs in order to produce a usefully large therape...
