The malignancy index in plasma samples as a prostate cancer biomarker.

No unambiguous role of the involvement of uroplasminogen activator (uPA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 (PAI-1) in prostate cancer has emerged, with current evidence suggesting that neither biomarker is likely of significant clinical value, save as an overall contributor. In this study, we attempt to discriminate prostate cancer from non-cancer in a cohort of plasma samples, using the Imubind ELISA assay. In this cohort, PAI-1 levels are higher in prostate cancer patients than healthy donors; uP...

Extracellular vesicles exposing tissue factor for the prediction of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer: A prospective cohort study.

The procoagulant activity of extracellular vesicles (EV) exposing tissue factor (TF) is a promising biomarker for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in cancer patients. We evaluated an in-house EV-TF activity assay (the fibrin generation test) for the prediction of cancer-associated VTE. We also compared the results with the fibrin generation tests to an EV-TF-dependent factor Xa generation assay in samples from pancreatic cancer patients.

Comparison of microvesicle tissue factor activity in non-cancer severely ill patients and cancer patients.

Increased levels of circulating tissue factor (TF)-positive microvesicles (MVs) may increase the risk of thrombosis. Indeed, TF-positive MVs are detected in plasma of patients with various types of diseases. In this study, we measured levels of MV TF activity in non-cancer severely ill patients and cancer patients.

Encouraging Patients to Speak up About Problems in Cancer Care.

Many patients with cancer believe that something has gone wrong in their care but are reluctant to speak up. This pilot study sought to evaluate the impact of an intervention of active outreach to patients undergoing cancer treatment, wherein patients were encouraged to speak up if they had concerns about their care and to describe the types of concerns patients reported.

Prevention of acute radiodermatitis by photobiomodulation: A randomized, placebo-controlled trial in breast cancer patients (TRANSDERMIS trial).

Acute radiodermatitis (RD) is a distressing and painful skin reaction that occurs in 95% of the patients undergoing radiotherapy (RT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) in the prevention of acute RD in breast cancer (BC) patients undergoing RT.

Do All Positive Margins in Breast Cancer Patients Undergoing a Partial Mastectomy Need to Be Resected?

Positive margins have been reported in 20-40% of patients undergoing a partial mastectomy (PM), often resulting in re-excision. How often the re-excision yields further cancer and whether there are predictors of residual disease remains unknown.

Detection of glypican-1 (GPC-1) expression in urine cell sediments in prostate cancer.

While measurement of serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) is an important screening tool for prostate cancer, new biomarkers are necessary for better discrimination between presence and absence of disease. The MIL-38 monoclonal antibody is specific for the membrane glycoprotein glypican 1 (GPC-1) and binds to prostate cancer tissue. Urine is known to be a source of cellular material. Thus, we hypothesized that detection of GPC-1 in urine cellular material may identify individuals with prostate cancer. Urin...

Clinical significance of TM4SF1 as a tumor suppressor gene in gastric cancer.

Transmembrane-4-L-six-family member-1 (TM4SF1), a tumor-associated antigen, is overexpressed in most epithelial cell carcinomas and a potential target for antibody-mediated therapy. However, the role of TM4SF1 in gastric cancer has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of TM4SF1 expression in gastric carcinoma (GC) tissues using 152 GC tissue samples and matched adjacent nontumor tissue samples analyzed by immunohistochemistry, and 13 fresh GC tissue samples...

Sorafenib in combination with gemcitabine plus cisplatin chemotherapy in metastatic renal collecting duct carcinoma: A prospective, multicentre, single-arm, phase 2 study.

Collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) is a rare type of renal cancer with a poor prognosis. As there are no standard guidelines for the management of metastatic CDC (mCDC), we evaluated the efficacy and safety of combined therapies of sorafenib, gemcitabine, plus cisplatin in patients with mCDC.

N-linked glycan branching and fucosylation are increased directly in hepatocellular carcinoma tissue as determined through in situ glycan imaging.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains as the fifth most common cancer in the world and accounts for more than 700,000 deaths annually. Changes in serum glycosylation have long been associated with this cancer but the source of that material is unknown and direct glycan analysis of HCC tissues has been limited. Our laboratory previously developed a method of in situ tissue based N-linked glycan imaging that bypasses the need for microdissection and solubilization of tissue prior to analysis. We used this me...

Effect of postoperative goal-directed therapy in cancer patients undergoing high-risk surgery: a randomized clinical trial and meta-analysis.

Perioperative goal-directed hemodynamic therapy (GDHT) has been advocated in high-risk patients undergoing noncardiac surgery to reduce postoperative morbidity and mortality. We hypothesized that using cardiac index (CI)-guided GDHT in the postoperative period for patients undergoing high-risk surgery for cancer treatment would reduce 30-day mortality and postoperative complications.

Tissue and serum expression of TGM-3 may be prognostic marker in patients of oral squamous cell carcinoma undergoing chemo-radiotherapy.

Radioresistance is one of the main determinants of treatment outcome in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), but its prediction is difficult. Several authors aimed to establish radioresistant OSCC cell lines to identify genes with altered expression in response to radioresistance. The development of OSCC is a multistep carcinogenic process that includes activation of several oncogenes and inactivation of tumour suppressor genes. TGM-3 is a tumour suppressor gene and contributes to carcinogenesis process. Th...

Morbidity, mortality, and survival in elderly patients undergoing pulmonary metastasectomy for colorectal cancer.

The number of elderly patients with colorectal cancer is increasing. Nevertheless, they are undertreated compared to younger patients. This study compares postoperative morbidity, mortality, survival, and morbidity risk factors of elderly and younger patients undergoing pulmonary metastasectomy (PM).

The role of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio as a prognostic indicator in patients undergoing nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma.

Prognosis in patients with cancer is influenced by underlying tumour biology and also the host inflammatory response to the disease. There is limited evidence to suggest that an elevated neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) predicts a poorer prognosis in patients undergoing nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The aim of this paper is to investigate if patients undergoing nephrectomy for RCC with NLR ≤4 have a better overall and recurrence-free survival than patients with NLR >4.

The role of HBsAg in HBV relapse after entecavir or tenofovir prophylaxis in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy.

This study investigated whether hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) could predict HBV relapse after cessation of entecavir or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) prophylaxis for chronic hepatitis B (CHB) cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy.
