VEGF Family Gene Expression as Prognostic Biomarkers for Alzheimer's Disease and Primary Liver Cancer

CONCLUSIONS: VEGF is highly expressed in patients with HCC and lowly expressed in patients with AD. VEGF has opposite opposing roles in the treatment of tumors and cognitive impairment.PMID:34845413 | PMC:PMC8627334 | DOI:10.1155/2021/3422393

CONCLUSIONS: Overall, our results suggest that BACE1-AS is associated with the expression, prognosis, and rate of immune cell infiltration of most tumors. Thus, BACE1-AS may be a potential target for immunotherapies aimed at improving cancer patient outcomes.PMID:34926701 | PMC:PMC8674649 | DOI:10.1155/2021/1589864

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTArginine deiminase is a well-recognized guanidino-modifying hydrolase that catalyzes the conversion of L-arginine to citrulline and ammonia. Their biopotential to regress tumors via amino acid deprivation therapy (AADT) has been well established. PEGylated formulation of recombinant Mycoplasma ADI is in the last-phase clinical trials against various arginine-auxotrophic cancers like hepatocellular carcinoma, melanoma, and mesothelioma. Recently, ADIs have attained immense importance in several other bi...

This study aimed to determine the association between: (i) cognitive decline and bone loss; and (ii) clinically significant cognitive decline on Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) over the first 5 years and subsequent fracture risk over the following 10 years. A total of 1741 women and 620 men aged ≥65 years from the population-based Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study were followed from 1997 to 2013. Over 95% of participants had normal cognition at baseline. After multivariable adjustment, cognitive decline was associated with bone loss in women but not men. Approximately 13% of participants ...

In conclusion, the findings suggest that DNAm GrimAge is a strong predictor of mortality independent of genetic influences. Heart Failure Correlates with Increased Cancer Risk https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/07/heart-failure-correlates-with-increased-cancer-risk/ Age-related disease results from the underlying cell and tissue damage that causes aging. Different people accumulate that damage at modestly different rates, the result of lifestyle choices and exposure to infectious disease. Thus the presence of a sufficient burden of damage to produce one age-related disease will be accompanied by a ...

Mol Biol Rep. 2021 Apr 20. doi: 10.1007/s11033-021-06347-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of single-stranded noncoding and endogenous RNA molecules with a length of 18-25 nucleotides. Previous work has shown that miR-124-3p leads to malignant progression of cancer including cell apoptosis, migration, invasion, drug resistance, and also recovers neural function, affects adipogenic differentiation, facilitates wound healing through control of various target genes. miR-124-3p has been mainly previously characterized as a tumor suppressor regulating tumorigenesis and progression in several cancer...

In conclusion, all NAFLD histological stages were associated with significantly increased overall mortality, and this risk increased progressively with worsening NAFLD histology. Most of this excess mortality was from extrahepatic cancer and cirrhosis, while in contrast, the contributions of cardiovascular disease and HCC were modest. BMP6 as a Target for Pro-Angiogenic Therapies https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/10/bmp6-as-a-target-for-pro-angiogenic-therapies/ Today's research materials are focused on the fine details of angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels, and point to BMP6 as a po...

Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a malignant tumor with high morbidity and mortality globally. It accounts for the majority of primary liver cancer cases. Amyloid precursor protein (APP), a cell membrane protein, plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, and has been found to be implicated in tumor growth and metastasis. Therefore, to understand the relationship between APP and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) resistance in liver cancer, Cell Counting Kit-8, apoptosis and cell cycle assays, western blotting, and reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) analysis were p...

In this study we show, for the first time, significant alterations in cholesterol efflux capacity in adolescents throughout the range of BMI, a relationship between six circulating adipocyte-derived EVs microRNAs targeting ABCA1 and cholesterol efflux capacity, and in vitro alterations of cholesterol efflux in macrophages exposed to visceral adipose tissue adipocyte-derived EVs acquired from human subjects. These results suggest that adipocyte-derived EVs, and their microRNA content, may play a critical role in the early pathological development of ASCVD.

Conclusions: We found a highly reliable FI network, which revealed LIFR, PIK3R1, and MMP12 as novel prognostic biomarker candidates for GBC. These findings could accelerate biomarker discovery and therapeutic development in this cancer. Introduction Gallbladder cancer (GBC), the sixth most common gastrointestinal cancer, is an uncommon but challenging disease. Its incidence has recently increased highly worldwide (1). The risk factors for GBC include sex, aging, obesity, chronic cholecystitis, and cholelithiasis (2, 3). Because of the lack of an effective early diagnostic method, the disease often is not diagnosed ...
