Mesothelioma Surgery with Organ Removal Extends Survival
Removing major organs to achieve a more complete cancer resection did not increase severe complications or hinder survival benefits of aggressive surgery for patients with peritoneal mesothelioma, according to a recent report. The increased complexity of organ resection surgery will not adversely affect long-term outcomes, according to the multicenter study published in Annals of Surgical Oncology. By comparison, an incomplete cytoreduction that can spare the organs is associated with increased mortality and shorter overall survival. The study, which involved 174 patients across 12 specialty centers within the U.S., accent...

Randomized trial of laparoscopic, open liver surgery found no difference in long-term survival ou
(American College of Physicians) A randomized trial of laparoscopic and open liver surgery for patients with metastatic colon cancer found no difference in survival outcomes between treatment groups. Previously published short-term results showed that the laparoscopic approach led to fewer complications within 30 days after surgery, faster recovery, and shorter hospital stays. Findings from a randomized, controlled trial are published inAnnals of Internal Medicine. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Shedding new light on the origin of metastases
(Universit é de Gen è ve) Before an effective treatment can be devised, we have to be able to understand the specific effect of an anti-cancer substance on the cell type that produces metastases in the cellular heterogeneity of tumours. A team from the University of Geneva used spiked-scRNAseq that links the transcriptomic to single cell metastatic phenotypes of colon cancer tumour cells. The importance of the VSIG1 gene involved in intercellular interactions has been identified: it prevents metastases. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
