Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 inhibition enhances vemurafenib sensitivity in colon cancers harboring the BRAF mutation.

The BRAF inhibitor vemurafenib is widely used to treat melanomas harboring the activated BRAF mutation; however, vemurafenib showed poor efficacy in colon cancer, which impeded its clinical application for colon cancer patients with this mutation. The specific mechanism of vemurafenib resistance is not clear in colon cancer. In this study, we demonstrated that signal transducer and activator of tr...

Inhibition of NADPH oxidase activities ameliorates DSS-induced colitis.

NADPH oxidases (NOX) act to generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) and exhibit microbicidal bioactivity, whereas their roles in mediating immune responses of inflammation in intestine remain to be further elucidated. The study was performed to explore the effects of NOX activity on regulation of macrophage functions. Macrophage responses were induced by lipopolysaccharides (LPS) in RAW 264.7 cells...

The relation of fetal colon and rectum diameters with labor in healthy late-third trimester pregnancies.

To investigate the associations of fetal colon-rectum diameters with labor and fetal distress or meconium passage in healthy pregnancies in the late 3rd trimester.

A case report of postoperative VRSA enteritis: Effective management of rifampicin for vancomycin resistant Staphylococcus aureus enteritis after esophagectomy and colon reconstruction.

Vancomycin is one of the most widely used antibiotics for the treatment of serious infectious caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). However, reduced susceptibility of S. aureus to vancomycin has been observed in recent years. We report on a case of vancomycin resistant methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) enteritis after colon reconstruction followed by esopha...

Complete state-wide outcomes in elective colon cancer surgery.

Maintaining high standards in colon cancer surgery requires the measurement of quality indicators and the re-allocation of resources to address deficiencies. We used state-wide administrative data to determine the inpatient mortality for patients undergoing elective colon cancer surgery and to compare individual hospital rates.

Chronic kidney disease after 5/6 nephrectomy disturbs the intestinal microbiota and alters intestinal motility.

Organ-organ crosstalk is involved in homeostasis. Gastrointestinal symptoms are common in patients with renal failure. The aim of this study was to elucidate the relationship between gastrointestinal motility and gastrointestinal symptoms in chronic kidney disease. We performed studies in C57BL/6 mice with chronic kidney disease after 5/6 nephrectomy. Gastrointestinal motility was evaluated by ass...

REV-ERBα integrates colon clock with experimental colitis through regulation of NF-κB/NLRP3 axis.

The roles of Rev-erbα and circadian clock in colonic inflammation remain unclarified. Here we show colon clock genes (including Rev-erbα) are dysregulated in mice with DSS-induced colitis. In turn, disruption of the circadian clock exacerbates experimental colitis. Rev-erbα-deficient mice are more sensitive to DSS-induced colitis, supporting a critical role of Rev-erbα in disease development. ...

Clinical Vignettes/Case Reports - Colon.

Clinical Vignettes/Case Reports - Colon.

Impact of Disgust on Intentions to Undergo Colorectal Surgery.

Surgeons present patients with complex information at the perioperative appointment. Emotions likely play a role in surgical decision-making, and disgust is an emotion of revulsion at a stimulus that can lead to avoidance.

Predictors of Metastases in Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results of a National Cohort Study.

Rectal neuroendocrine tumors are often found incidentally. Local excision alone has been advocated for lesions ≤2 cm; however, the evidence base for this approach is limited.

Microcystin-LR promotes migration via the cooperation between microRNA-221/PTEN and STAT3 signal pathway in colon cancer cell line DLD-1.

Previous researches have reported that microcystin-LR (MC-LR) contributes to the progression of multiple types of carcinomas including colon cancer; however, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain unclear and require in-depth investigation. Here, the colon cell line DLD-1 was arranged for the analysis by the microRNA microarray which was associated with the cancer metastasis after MC-LR exposu...

Anti-metastatic effect of metformin via repression of interleukin 6-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition in human colon cancer cells.

Metformin, a first-line drug used to treat type 2 diabetes, has also been shown to have anticancer effects against a variety of malignancies, including colorectal cancer. Although inhibition of the mTOR pathway is known to be the most important mechanism for the antitumor effects of metformin, other mechanisms remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to identify the antitumor mechanism of met...

Local delivery of a cancer-favoring oncolytic vaccinia virus via poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) nanofiber for theranostic purposes.

Local delivery of viruses via nanomaterials has been demonstrated in the treatment of colon cancer. A cancer-favoring oncolytic vaccinia virus (CVV), which is an evolutionary cancer-favoring engineered vaccinia virus carrying the green fluorescent protein (GFP) gene, has antitumor efficacy in drug-resistant colon cancer and metastatic liver cells. Here, we present the antitumor efficacy of a CVV c...

Plasma metabolomic profiling distinguishes right-sided from left-sided colon cancer.

Many studies have demonstrated that right-sided colon cancer (RCC) has a higher mortality rate and worse prognosis than left-sided colon cancer (LCC). However, the underlying biological mechanism that can account for these differences is unclear.

Differential expression of tumor-associated genes and altered gut microbiome with decreased Akkermansia muciniphila confer a tumor-preventive microenvironment in intestinal epithelial Pten-deficient mice.

Phosphatase and tensin homolog (Pten) antagonizes PI3K-Akt signaling; therefore, Pten impairment causes tumorigenesis. However, the correlation between Pten deficiency and colon cancer has remained elusive due to numerous opposite observations. To study this correlation, we examined whether Pten deficiency in intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) induces tumorigenesis. With mucosal biopsies of human ...

Protein Kinase C Inhibitors Selectively Modulate Dynamics of Cell Adhesion Molecules and Cell Death in Human Colon Cancer Cells.

During development of colon cancer, Protein Kinase Cs (PKCs) are involved in the transcription or activation of many genes controlling several cellular mechanisms. Here, we examined the changes in the protein and mRNA levels of cell adhesion molecules and PKCs for colorectal cancer progression in PKC inhibitors-treated cells. We identified that PKCs affected expression of EpCAM, claudins, tetraspa...

The aqueous extract of Phellinus igniarius (SH) ameliorates dextran sodium sulfate-induced colitis in C57BL/6 mice.

Phellinus igniarius, which is called Sanghuang in Chinese, is a fungal herb widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat stomachache, inflammation and tumors. Recent studies have demonstrated the antitumor, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory and immunity-modulating activities of P. igniarius. In the present study, we investigated that ameliorating effect of the aqueous extract of P. igniariu...

Long Noncoding RNA FAL1 Promotes Proliferation and Inhibits Apoptosis of Human Colon Cancer Cells.

Aberrant expression of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) has been associated with a variety of malignancies including colon cancer. In this study, we aimed to characterize the biological mechanisms of focally amplified lncRNA on chromosome 1 (FAL1) in colon cancers. Here, our results indicate that FAL1 expression was remarkably up-regulated in colon tumor tissues as compared to corresponding tumor-ad...

Lymph node ratio is inferior to pN-stage in predicting outcome in colon cancer patients with high numbers of analyzed lymph nodes.

The lymph node ratio (LNR), i.e. the number of positive lymph nodes (LN) divided by the total number of analyzed LN, has been described as a strong outcome predictor in node-positive colon cancer patients. However, most published analyses are constrained by relatively low numbers of analyzed LN. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to evaluate the prognostic impact of LNR in colon can...
