Colorectal carcinoma is the third most common cancer worldwide. Approximately 20% of patients with colorectal cancer will have metastatic disease at the time of initial diagnosis, and approximately 30% to 50% of patients with primary colon cancer will relapse and die of metastatic cancer. The 5-year survival rate of metastatic colorectal cancer remains disappointing at approximately 10%.Angiogenesis plays a significant role in tumor growth and metastasis in colorectal carcinoma. There are currently 4 US Foo...
In the last few years, molecular targeted therapies have replaced traditional cytotoxic chemotherapy in the fight against many cancers to the extent that our understanding of tumor biology has become more sophisticated. This shift has markedly changed adverse event profiles, compared to cytotoxic chemotherapy, affecting a diverse range of organ systems. Everolimus was approved by the FDA in 2011 for the treatment of progressive pancreatic NE tumors (Yao, 2011; Jensenn, 2012). It is an inhibitor of mammalian...
B7-H3 is attractive for cancer immunotherapy with B7-H3 overexpressed tumors. To explore whether B7-H3 is an effective target for patients with bladder cancer, anti-CD3× anti-B7-H3 bispecific antibodies (B7-H3Bi-Ab) was armed with activated T cells (ATC) to kill bladder cancer cells.
Cancer stem-like cells (CSC) are regarded as the source of tumour origins, metastasis and drug resistance, and limits current treatment regimens. Previously, we reported the first study of the anti-angiogenic and anti-tumour activities of 4-vinylphenol. To further examine the therapeutic role of 4-vinylphenol, the inhibitory effects of 4-vinylphenol on cancer stemness, drug resistance and metastasis in breast cancer were investigated in the present study.
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Different targeted therapies and the introduction of immunotherapy have successfully improved outcome for patients with non-small lung cancer (NSCLC). Anti-angiogenic drugs are an essential component in the treatment of NSCLC patients. The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A antibody bevacizumab is approved for first-line treatment of advanced-stage patients in combination with platinum-based chemotherapy. R...
Despite a growing body of evidence indicating a potential efficacy of the anti-diabetic metformin as anti-cancer agent, the exact mechanism underlying this efficacy has remained largely unknown. Here, we aimed at assessing putative mechanisms associated with the ability of metformin to reduce the proliferation and migration of breast cancer cells.
The impairment of the tumour suppressor p53 pathway is a major event in human cancer. This makes p53 activation one of the most appealing therapeutic strategies to halt cancer. Herein, we identified a new selective p53 activator, and investigated its potential as an anticancer agent.
Peptide-based drugs have shown promising results in overcoming the limitations of chemotherapeutic drugs by providing a targeted therapy approach to cancer. However, the response rate of targeted therapies is limited, in large part due to the intra- and inter-heterogeneity of tumors.
Lung cancer is a major health concern worldwide, but new immunotherapeutic treatments for lung cancer have shown great promise and the prognosis for many severe cancers including lung cancer has been improving. In May 2017, the Food and Drug Administration approved pembrolizumab, a therapeutic antibody that blocks lymphocytic programmed death-1 (PD-1), as a first-line treatment for any solid tumor with specific genetic features. Pembrolizumab is a therapeutic antibody that blocks lymphocytic PD-1, the ligan...
Pertuzumab, a novel anti-epidermal growth factor receptor 2 humanized monoclonal antibody, and trastuzumab-emtansine (TDM1), a novel antibody-drug conjugate made up of trastuzumab covalently linked to the highly potent microtubule inhibitory agent DM1, have been recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for increasing the efficiency and safety of breast cancer therapy with trastuzumab. We investigated for the first time the potential cardiotoxic effects of pertuzumab and TDM1, which are not y...
Trastuzumab improves survival outcomes for patients with HER2-positive (HER2) breast cancer, yet not all such women receive this important therapy. Trastuzumab was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1998 and the European Medicines Agency in 2000 as treatment for HER2metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Observational studies between 2000 and 2015 in patients with HER2MBC suggest that nearly 12% in the United States, 27% to 54% in Europe, and 27.1% to 49.2% in China did not receive trastuzumab or a...
Disulfiram (DSF), which is used to treat alcohol dependence, has been reported to have anti-cancer effects in various malignant tumors. In this study, we investigated the anti-cancer effects and mechanism of DSF in HNSCC.
Cancer is a disease associated with ageing. Increased life expectancy means that cancer in older adults is becoming an increasingly common problem. There are unique issues to consider when making decisions about cancer treatment in older populations. Unfortunately, however, this group is still under-represented in clinical trials for new cancer therapies meaning there are less evidence-based data to guide management. This article aims to look at how we can optimise the cancer treatment for older patients wi...
Quality-of-life (QOL) has been reported to affect the prognosis of many types of cancer, and several studies used various QOL assessment tools to determine the relationship between QOL and cancer prognosis. In this study, QOL-Questionnaire for Cancer Patients Treated with Anti-Cancer Drugs-the Breast (QOL-ACD-B) was modified to be suitable for preoperative chemotherapy (POC) and was named the QOL-ACD-BP.
Tissue factor (TF) expression increases cancer stem cell (CSC) activity in breast and lung cancer. There are ongoing studies focused on targeting CSCs via anti-TF treatment, for breast and lung cancer therapy. Herein, the aim was to determine whether targeting TF could have an anti-CSC therapeutic role in colorectal cancer (CRC).
Many cancer cells depend on anti-apoptotic B cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) proteins for their survival. Bcl-2 antagonism through BH3 mimetics emerged as novel anti-cancer therapy. ABT-199 (Venetoclax), a recently developed BH3 mimetic inhibiting selectively Bcl-2, was introduced into the clinic for treatment of relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. Early generations of Bcl-2 inhibitors evoked sustained Ca responses in pancreatic acinar cells (PACs) inducing cell death. Therefore, BH3 mimetics could potentially ...
Epithelial ovarian cancer is a common malignancy, with no clinically approved diagnostic biomarker. Engrailed-2 (EN2) is a homeodomain-containing transcription factor, essential during embryological neural development, which is dysregulated in several cancer types. We evaluated the expression of EN2 in Epithelial ovarian cancer, and reviewed its role as a biomarker.
β-Elemene, an anti-cancer drug extracted from traditional Chinese medicinal herb, showed anti-tumor effects on gastric cancer cells. Our previous studies reported gastric cancer cells are insensitive to TRAIL. However, whether β-elemene could enhance anti-cancer effects of TRAIL on gastric cancer cells is unknown. In our present study, β-elemene prevented gastric cancer cell viability in dose-dependent manner, and when combined with TRAIL, obviously inhibited proliferation and promoted apoptosis in gastr...
Multidrug resistance (MDR) triggered by ATP binding cassette (ABC) transporters, such as ABCB1, ABCC1, and ABCG2, is a key obstacle for successful cancer chemotherapy. There is currently no FDA-approved MDR modulator that can be used in clinic. Ceritinib, a selective ALK inhibitor, has been approved as the second-line treatment for ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer. Here, we examined the role of ceritinib in leukemia associated MDR in therapy.
Anti-programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) agents enhance the antitumor immunoresponse. A number of reports have indicated that patients with malignancies who receive anti-PD-1 agents are at risk for tuberculosis (TB) infection. In this report, we present a patient with non-small cell lung cancer who developed pulmonary tuberculosis while receiving the anti-PD-1 agent nivolumab, and who subsequently demonstrated a paradoxical response (PR) 10 days after initiation of anti-MTB treatment. We suggest that anti-PD-1 a...
Galactosyltransferases are a family of enzymes responsible for the synthesis of glycan chains which are involved in cell proliferation, adhesion and apoptosis. A recently synthesized galactosyltransferase inhibitor, 2-naphthyl 2-butanamido-2-deoxy-1-thio-β-D-glucopyranoside (612), has been found to selectively inhibit β1,4-galactosyltransferase over β1,3-galactosyltransferase and, therefore, has potential to suppress the synthesis of cancer associated epitopes. However, the application of this inhibitory...
Although T lymphocytes have long been appreciated for their role in the immunosurveillance of cancer, it has been the realization that cancer cells may ultimately escape a response from tumor-reactive T cells that has ignited efforts to enhance the efficacy of anti-tumor immune responses. Recent advances in our understanding of T cell immunobiology have been particularly instrumental in informing therapeutic strategies to overcome mechanisms of tumor immune escape, and immune checkpoint blockade has emerged...
Cancer disease is the second cause of death in the world. Now a days, high percentage of drugs, which are involved in treatment of cancers, have natural origin. Introduction of microalgae strains as anti-cancer drugs origin is a valuable approach for cancer therapy.
-Ascorbic acid (vitamin C, AA) exhibits anti-cancer effects with high-dose treatment through the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and selective damage to cancer cells. The anti-cancer effects of -ascorbic acid are determined by sodium-dependent vitamin C transporter 2 (SVCT-2), a transporter of -ascorbic acid. In this study, we demonstrate that -ascorbic acid treatment showed efficient anti-cancer activity in cell lines with high expression levels of SVCT-2 for a gradient concentration of -ascorb...
