HER2 overexpression is a putative diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for late-stage colorectal cancer in North African patients

Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is the first study that HER2 overexpression correlates with more aggressive colorectal cancer in North African population. Our study shows that HER2 overexpression associates with right colon surgeries. Also, the correlation of mRNA and protein expression could warrant the implementation of a nationwide screening program for HER2 positivity in CRC patients. Taken together, stratifying patients according to HER2 expression can help in the diagnosis and prognosis of CRC patients from North African origin.PMID:34319852 | DOI:10.1080/19932820.2021.1955462

AbstractPurposeGenetic variants may influence the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PKPD) of cyclophosphamide (CY). CY plays a critical role in conditioning chemotherapy for hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), but its use is limited by toxicity. We explored the effect of genetic variants, potentially affecting PKPD of CY, and outcomes after HCT.MethodsThis observational pharmacogenomic study included 85 adults with hematologic malignancies who received reduced intensity conditioning with CY, fludarabine, and total body irradiation. We collected recipient DNA prior to HCT and evaluated 97 candidate variants in 66...

This study is an important step forward in highlighting C1q as a new prognostic candidate biomarker for a range of carcinomas. Methods Oncomine Database Analysis The expression levels of C1QA, C1QB, and C1QC genes in various carcinomas were analyzed using Oncomine (www.oncomine.org), a cancer microarray database and web-based data mining platform from genome-wide expression analyses (22, 23). We compared the differences in mRNA level between normal tissue and carcinoma. The mRNA expression levels in neoplastic tissues compared to the healthy tissues were obtained as the parameters of p-value 2, and gene ranking in the t...
