ncRNAs in Exosomes of Cholangiocarcinoma

2017-04-06 02:53:21 | BioPortfolio


Exosomes are part of extracellular vesicles(EVs), and can be secreted into the environment by many types of cells. It has been demonstrated that the content and function of exosomes depends on the originating cell and the conditions under which they are produced.Exosomes contain proteins,RNAs and lipid,which may transfer biological information and activities from donor cells to receptor cells. Non-coding RNAs are involved in many biological activities including tumor growth and metastasis.

In this prospective translational study, preclinical and clinical phases have been designed. On the first step, the main goal is to characterize the ncRNAs of cholangiocarcinoma derived exosomes. This exosome biomarker may provide a useful diagnostic tool. As a second step, the study will evaluate the prognostic and predictive value of cholangiocarcinoma exosomes levels in plasma in a prospectively recruited cohort of cholangiocarcinoma patients before and after surgical resection.

Analysis of Oncogenes in Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma or Mixed Hepatocellular-Cholangiocarcinoma in Tumor Tissue Samples

The primary objective of this study is to estimate the frequency of FGFR2 fusions in archived intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA) or mixed hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (HCC-CCA) tu...

Biliary Cancer in Italy: a Study on Cholangiocarcinoma cAUSEs and Risk Factors

Multi-centric, observational, prospective study, designed for pts with diagnosis of all-stages cholangiocarcinoma, including rare and crossing-over histological types, and excluding gallbl...

Long-term Morbidity After Surgery for Perihilar Cholangiocarcinoma

Surgery for perihilar cholangiocarcinoma offers the only possibility of long-term survival, but remains a formidable undertaking. Traditionally, 90 day post-operative complications and dea...

Regional or Extend LymphAdenectomy During Resection of Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is one of the common malignant tumors. Lymph node metastasis is an important factor affecting the poor prognosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. T...

Coregistration of 18F-FDG-PET and MRI in the Staging of Potentially Resectable Hilar Cholangiocarcinoma: a Pilot Study

To evaluate the feasibility and performance of coregistered 18F-FDG-PET/MRI in the staging of potentially respectable hilar cholangiocarcinoma.

A case of small in situ perihilar cholangiocarcinoma incidentally accompanied by benign bile duct stricture after open cholecystectomy.

In situ cholangiocarcinoma is difficult to detect by imaging studies. Thus, cholangiocarcinoma is rarely resected with a preoperative definitive diagnosis, especially nonpapillary flat type in situ ca...

Prognostic impact of CD8+ T cell distribution and its association with the HLA class I expression in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

A lack of effective systemic therapy is one reason for the poor prognosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Newly developed immune checkpoint inhibitors function by minimizing CD8+ T cell suppressio...

Robotic radical surgery for hilar cholangiocarcinoma: A single-centre case series.

Radical resection for hilar cholangiocarcinoma is considered one of the most complicated abdominal operations. We report our initial experience with robotic radical resection for hilar cholangiocarcin...

CXCL12 expression in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma is associated with metastasis and poor prognosis.

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma is a rare malignant biliary neoplasm that causes a poor prognosis even after curative hepatectomy. Liver metastasis is the major recurrence pattern of intrahepatic chol...

CD133 and epithelial cell adhesion molecule expressions in cholangiocarcinoma component are prognostic factors for combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma.

A new classification of combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (CHC) was recently reported. Cancer stem cells have been associated with CHC carcinogenesis. This study examined the association of c...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cholangiocarcinoma arising near or at the confluence of the right and left hepatic ducts (COMMON HEPATIC DUCT). These tumors are generally small, sharply localized, and seldom metastasizing.

A malignant tumor arising from the intrahepatic bile duct epithelium. It is composed of ducts lined by cuboidal or columnar cells that do not contain bile, with abundant stroma. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1455; Stedman, 25th ed)
