Molecules, Vol. 25, Pages 4586: Antiproliferative and Antimigration Activities of Beauvericin Isolated from Isaria sp. on Pancreatic Cancer Cells

This study describes the antiproliferative and antimigration effects of beauvericin from a culture broth of Isaria sp. in human pancreatic cancer cells (PANC-1). Activity-guided fractionation of the EtOAc extract of cultured broth of Isaria sp. RD055140 afforded beauvericin (1), a new isariotin derivative, 7-O-methylisariotin C (2), together with the known isariotin analogs, TK-57-164A (3) and B (4). As a result of the measurement of the cell viability, 1 inhibited cell growth (IC50 = 4.8 µM) of PANC-1 cells. Furthermore, 1 was found to inhibit the migration activity of PANC-1 cells by upregulating the expression of the E-cadherin gene and reducing N-cadherin and Snail genes in a dose-dependent manner (0.1–1 µM). These activities of 1 had lower concentrations than the cytotoxic activity. These findings suggest that 1 can be used as an anticancer agent against human pancreatic carcinoma.

This study analyzed QoL data from a prospective multicenter patient-reported outcome registry in patients with pancreatic or periampullary carcinoma registered in the nationwide Netherlands Cancer Registry (2015-2018). Baseline and delta QoL, between baseline and 3-month follow-up, were assessed with the Happiness, EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30 (QLQ-C30), and QLQ-PAN26 questionnaires. The relationship between QoL and survival was assessed using Cox regression models, and additional prognostic value of separate items was assessed using Nagelkerke R2 (explained variance). RESULTS: For the baseline and delta...

Conclusions: Our data demonstrates, that increased CCKBR protein level by RAD001 pretreatment has the potential to improve tumor uptake of [177Lu]Lu-PP-F11N and provides proof-of-concept for the development of molecular strategies aimed at enhancing the level of the targeted receptor, to increase the efficacy of PRRT and nuclear imaging.

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), second by frequency only to hepatocellular carcinoma in liver cancer, has an increasing global incidence and mortality rate. The prognosis of ICC patients is still poor even though they undergo operation. Lymph node positivity is a strong negative prognostic factor among many ICC prognostic factors, including tumor size, multifocal disease, and vascular invasion. Positive lymph node ratio (PLNR), which represents the degree of lymph node positivity, has been approved as an independent and accurate survival prognostic factor in patients with different cancers.

Abstract The most frequent indication for pancreatic fine-needle aspiration sampling is to confirm or exclude a pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). PDAC is the most common malignant neoplasm of the pancreas, and the term pancreatic cancer typically connotes this entity. The conventional type of PDAC is a tubular adenocarcinoma, with a number of morphological variations described. Morphologically distinct but related entities include adenosquamous carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma, and undifferentiated carcinoma with osteoclast-type giant cells. Unrelated carcinomas with ductal lineage include colloid carc...

Authors: Wang W, Ning JZ, Tang ZG, He Y, Yao LC, Ye L, Wu L Abstract Pancreatic carcinoma (PC) is a rapidly progressive, fatal malignant tumor with the poorest prognosis among all major carcinoma types. MicroRNAs (miRNAs/miRs) have been indicated to be key post-transcriptional regulatory factors, which are involved in cancer development. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of miR-23a on PC cell proliferation, metastasis and apoptosis. The expression of miR-23a was detected in a normal pancreatic ductal epithelial cell line and three PC cell lines, and miR-23a inhibitor or mimics were transfecte...
