Engaging Latina breast cancer survivors in research: building a social network research registry.

Disparities persist in breast cancer outcomes between Latina survivors and non-Hispanic Whites. Identifying methods to ensure that Latinas participate in and benefit from translational behavioral medicine research is important to reduce disparities. We developed a "Social Network Research Registry" to enhance Latina survivors' engagement in research and explored the social networks and research/cancer organization participation in this population. We initially recruited 30 Latina breast cancer survivors ("s...

Sequencing pancreatic juice: squeezing the most out of surveillance.

Next-generation sequencing of pancreatic juice can detect and quantify tumor-promoting mutations, supporting imaging and cytology findings to predict the degree of dysplasia in patients at high risk for pancreatic cancer. Future studies are needed to optimize this approach and determine how it best fits into clinical practice.

International testicular cancer incidence rates in children, adolescents and young adults.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men in developed countries. In adults, international variation in testicular cancer incidence rates has been well-described, while previous research on pediatric and adolescent testicular cancer has been more geographically limited.

Role of the Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) in the Head and Neck Cancer Team.

While treatments for head and neck cancer are aimed at curing patients from disease, they can have significant short- and long-term negative impacts on speech and swallowing functions. Research demonstrates that early and frequent involvement of Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) is beneficial to these functions and overall quality of life for head and neck cancer patients. Strategies and tools to optimize communication and safe swallowing are presented in this chapter.

Validation of a plasma-based comprehensive cancer genotyping assay utilizing orthogonal tissue- and plasma-based methodologies.

Liquid biopsies are powerful tools that enable non-invasive genotyping of advanced solid tumors; however, comprehensive, structured validation studies employing validated orthogonal comparator methods are lacking.

Prostate Cancer: Improving the Flow of Research.

Prostate cancer is the most common nonskin cancer diagnosed in U.S. men and kills over 27 000 men annually. Thus, improving the outcomes for patients diagnosed with this disease is imperative. There has been a considerable amount of research done over the past several decades resulting in more cures than ever, but the death rate is still unacceptable. This oration addresses the progress that we have made over the past several decades and outlines the work yet to be done, as well as some processes to make th...

A Phase 1 Clinical Trial of Guadecitabine and Carboplatin In Platinum-Resistant, Recurrent Ovarian Cancer: Clinical, Pharmacokinetic And Pharmacodynamic Analyses.

Epigenetic changes are implicated in acquired resistance to platinum. Guadecitabine is a next-generation hypomethylating agent (HMA). Here we report the clinical results, along with pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic analyses of the phase 1 study of guadecitabine and carboplatin (G+C) in patients with recurrent, platinum resistant high-grade serous ovarian cancer (OC), primary peritoneal carcinoma (PPC), or fallopian tube cancer (FTC).

Regulatory mechanisms of PD-L1 expression in cancer cells.

Immunotherapy targeting the PD-L1/PD-1 pathway using antibodies is effective in the clinical treatment of a multitude of cancers. This makes research of the regulatory mechanisms of PD-1 expression in cancer cells intriguing. PD-L1 expression can be categorized into inducible expression, attributed to extrinsic factors in the microenvironment, and constitutive expression, attributed to intrinsic cancer-driving gene alteration. The mechanisms of PD-L1 expression in cancer cells operate at multiple levels, in...

Phenformin-Induced Mitochondrial Dysfunction Sensitizes Hepatocellular Carcinoma for Dual Inhibition of mTOR.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) ranks second in cancer mortality and has limited therapeutic options. We recently described the synergistic effect of allosteric and ATP-site competitive inhibitors against the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) for the treatment of HCC. However, such inhibitors induce glycemia and increase mitochondrial efficiency. Here we determined whether the mitochondrial complex I inhibitor Phenformin could reverse both side effects, impose an energetic-stress on cancer cells and suppr...

Targeting of glutamine transporter ASCT2 and glutamine synthetase suppresses gastric cancer cell growth.

Glutamine (Gln) is essential for the proliferation of most cancer cells, making it an appealing target for cancer therapy. However, the role of Gln in gastric cancer (GC) metabolism is unknown and Gln-targeted therapy against GC remains scarce. The aim of this study was to investigate the relevance of Gln in GC growth and targeting.

Examining the preliminary efficacy of an intervention for fear of cancer recurrence in female cancer survivors: a randomized controlled clinical trial pilot study.

Among cancer survivors, fear of cancer recurrence (FCR) is the most frequently reported unmet need. Despite this, research on psychosocial interventions that target FCR is limited. To address this gap, an individual cognitive-existential psychotherapy intervention for FCR was pilot tested via small-scale RCT.

Male Oncology Research and Education program for men at high risk for prostate cancer.

Three groups of men are at high risk of developing prostate cancer: men with a strong family history of prostate cancer, men of West African or Caribbean ancestry, and men with a germline pathogenic variant in a prostate cancer-associated gene. Despite the fact that those men constitute a significant portion of the male population in North America, few recommendations for prostate cancer screening specific to them have been developed. For men at general population risk for prostate cancer, screening based o...

CDK8 regulates the angiogenesis of pancreatic cancer cells in part via the CDK8-β-catenin-KLF2 signal axis.

CDK8 is associated with the transcriptional Mediator complex and has been shown to regulate several transcription factors implicated in cancer. As a pancreatic cancer oncogene, the role of CDK8 in cancer angiogenesis remains unclear. Here, we investigated the contribution of CDK8 in pancreatic cancer angiogenesis and examined the underlying molecular mechanisms.
