As the name suggests, drug repurposing is a strategy to identify new therapeutic uses for marketed drugs, discontinued and/or shelved drugs, and drug candidates currently in clinical development. Although not a recent concept, drug repurposing has gained momentum over the past few years and several drugs have been successfully repurposed. Here, we summarize the drug repurposing landscape from 2012 to 2017, with a major focus on repurposed drugs, collaborative opportunities, and funding opportunities specifi...
In conjunction with will feature occasional drug-related cases that are likely to be of interest to readers. These will include cases that involve recently marketed drugs for which there is limited knowledge of adverse effects and cases that highlight unusual reactions to drugs that have been marketed for several years.
Tumor-infiltrating neutrophils (TINs) perform quite significant but opposite functions in different cancers, and its function in biliary cancer has not been fully characterized. To investigate the prognostic significance of TINs in biliary cancer, a training set (n=118) and a validation set (n=127) were involved in this study. TINs were evaluated by immunohistochemical staining of CD66b, and then defined as low (neutrophils
Resminostat is an oral hydroxamate inhibitor of class I, IIb, and IV histone deacetylases. S-1 is widely used to treat biliary tract cancer and pancreatic cancer in Japan. We performed a phase I study of resminostat combined with S-1 as second-line or later therapy in Japanese patients with biliary tract or pancreatic cancer. A total of 27 patients were enrolled. We determined the optimal regimen for resminostat/S-1 therapy in part 1, and investigated its safety and efficacy in part 2. In part 1, 17 patient...
The rate of preoperative biliary drainage for pancreaticoduodenectomy has been increasing despite most recent evidence that favors avoiding it. Only a few studies have focused on late surgical complications - biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy and have produced only inconclusive results. We evaluate the role of preoperative biliary drainage in formation of biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy.
The placement of a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is widely used in patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstructions, but SEMSs are susceptible to occlusion by tumor ingrowth or overgrowth. The efficacy and safety of a novel paclitaxel-eluting biliary metal stent incorporating sodium caprate (MSCPM-III) were compared prospectively with those of a covered metal stent (CMS) in patients with malignant biliary obstructions.
To evaluate each arm independently and compare adjuvant gemcitabine (GEM) and S-1 chemotherapy after major hepatectomy (hemihepatectomy or trisectionectomy) for biliary tract cancer (BTC).
The pace of discovery of new antiretroviral (ARV) drugs has slowed, although the efficacy and safety of once-daily fixed dose combinations have been extensively investigated. Several traditional ARV drugs remain in phase III clinical trials. This review summarizes current information on ARV drugs in phase III clinical trials and focuses on the development of ARV drugs in the next decade.
Biliary strictures can be broadly classified as benign or malignant. Benign biliary strictures are most commonly iatrogenic in nature and are a consequence of hepatobiliary surgery. Cholangiocarcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the pancreas are the most common causes of malignant biliary obstruction. This article reviews state-of-the-art minimally invasive techniques used to manage these strictures. In addition, the roles of (a) recently introduced biodegradable biliary stents in the management of benign biliary...
Biliary atresia is a life-threatening disease that needs early diagnosis and management. Recently, MRI images have been used for the diagnosis of biliary atresia with improved accuracy of diagnosis when other imaging modalities such as ultrasonography are equivocal. This study aimed to evaluate the juxta-hilar extrahepatic biliary tree using MRI images to determine a quantitative value for diagnosing biliary atresia.
Vascular damage has been reported to contribute to atresia formation in several diseases including biliary atresia. This study focused on the extrahepatic biliary plexus in experimental biliary atresia.
Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes are related to positive clinical prognoses in numerous cancer types. Programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1), a mediator of the PD-1 receptor, plays an inhibitory role in cancer immune responses. PD-L1 upregulation can impede infiltrating T-cell functions in lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), a lung cancer subtype. However, associations between the expression of PD-L1 and infiltration of B cells (a major immunoregulatory cell) remain unknown. Therefore, we investigated the role of infiltra...
The global biologics market has been ever increasing over the last decades and is predicted to top Euro 350 by 2020. Facing this scenario, the parenteral route of biologics administration as hitherto standard route is inconvenient for the future. Among the alternatives, the intranasal delivery of therapeutic biologicals seems to be most promising but researchers are still facing challenges as indicated by the scarce number of successfully marketed peptide drugs.
Tumor immunotherapy, as a new treatment of cancer, has been developing on the basis of tumor immunology. Tumor immunotherapy stimulates and enhances the function of immune system in human bodies, in order to control and kill tumor cells. It is often used as an adjuvant therapy combined with surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other conventional methods. Cancer immunotherapies involve cells, antibodies and cytokines, etc. Some immunotherapies are widely used to activate the immune system, while some othe...
Cholangiocarcinoma (CC) is the second most common tumor of the liver, originating from the biliary system with increasing incidence and mortality worldwide. Several new classifications review the significance of tumor localization, site of origin, proliferation and biomarkers in the intrahepatic, perihilar and distal forms of the lesion. Based on growth pattern mass-forming, periductal-infiltrating, intraductal, undefined and mixed types are differentiated. There are further subclassifications which are app...
Pancreatic duct disruption (PDD) after acute pancreatitis can cause pancreatic collections in the early phase and biliary stenosis (BS) or gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) in the late phase. We aimed to document those late complications after moderate or severe acute pancreatitis.
Some infants with biliary atresia are treated with primary liver transplant (pLT), but most are initially treated with biliary-enteric drainage (BED) with a subsequent salvage liver transplant. Given the improvements in liver transplant outcomes, it is important to determine whether BED treatment remains the optimal surgical algorithm for patients with biliary atresia.
Game theory has been widely applied to many research areas including economics, biology and social sciences. However, it is still challenging to quantify the global stability and global dynamics of the game theory. We developed a landscape and flux framework to quantify the global stability and global dynamics of the game theory. As an example, we investigated a model of three-strategy game: a special replicator mutator game termed as the repeated Prison Dilemma model. In this model, one stable state, two s...
The objective response is an important endpoint to evaluate clinical activity of new anticancer drugs. Standardized criteria for evaluating response are needed for comparing results of different trials and represent the basis for advances in cancer therapy. Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 are the most used in clinical practice and in clinical trials; however, they are not able to capture atypical responses seen with immunotherapy drugs. We describe the evolution of response criteri...
Biliary reconstruction is a cornerstone of living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The routine uses of trans-anastomotic biliary catheters in biliary reconstruction had been a controversial issue. We describe a rare complication related to the use of trans-anastomotic biliary catheter after LDLT. In this case, intestinal obstruction occurred early after LDLT due to internal herniation of the small bowel around trans-anastomotic biliary catheter.
To establish the inter-unit reliability of a range of Global Positioning System (GPS)-derived movement indicators, determine the variation between manufacturers, and investigate the difference between software-derived and raw data.
The molecular mechanisms involved in the development and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are complex. Molecule-targeted drugs are characterized by strong specificity and low toxicity, but the clinical research of these drugs still exhibits many difficulties, such as poor target specificity. With the in-depth study of the tumor immunological theory, therapies based on overcoming the tumor immune escape to produce a specific effective tumor immune response has gradually become a hot topic in tumo...
Antimicrobial disks for susceptibility testing can be obtained from many manufacturers. We evaluated the quality of disks from nine manufacturers in 2014 and 2017.
Biliary strictures represent some of the most frequent complications encountered after orthotopic liver transplantation. They comprise an array of biliary abnormalities with variations in anatomical location, clinical presentation and different pathogenesis. Magnetic resonance cholangiography represents the most accurate non-invasive imaging test that can provide detailed imaging of the whole biliary system, below and above the anastomosis. It is of particular value in those harboring complex hilar or intra...
Cryptosporidium parvum is one of the major species causing mild to severe cryptosporidiosis in humans and animals. We have previously observed that 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) could inhibit both the enzyme activity of C. parvum hexokinase (CpHK) and the parasite growth in vitro. However, the action and fate of 2DG in C. parvum was not fully investigated. In the present study, we showed that, although 2DG could be phosphorylated by CpHK to form 2DG-6-phosphate (2DG6P), the anti-cryptosporidial activity of 2DG wa...
